The Duchess Deal (Girl Meets Duke) by Tessa Dare
The Duchess Deal - Tessa Dare

 

Tessa Dare is in my opinion one the most haunting of authors in historical romance to date. Her stories are equal parts heartbreaking but highly unforgettable. The Duchess Deal takes a few cues from Beauty and the Beast and like the thief of the night Ashbury presents himself to be runs away with a readers soul. Emma is the owner of a lonely heart. Ashbury is the keeper of a broken spirit. Their's is a relationship of convenience until emotions become involved and the terms run away with their hearts. Nothing is as beautiful as the courageous and seductive romance of two lost souls finding a forever home in each others arms.

Lord Dashwood Missed Out
Lord Dashwood Missed Out - Tessa Dare

This was short and sweet. I liked that he couldn't forget her and is supportive of her desire to continue writing. Looking forward to Charlotte's story (it's about time!).

Do You Want to Start a Scandal by Tessa Dare $1.99
Do You Want to Start a Scandal (Castles Ever After) - Tessa Dare

In the night of the Parkhurst ball, someone had a scandalous tryst in the library.

Was it Lord Canby, with the maid, on the divan? Or Miss Fairchild, with a rake, against the wall? Perhaps the butler did it.

All Charlotte Highwood knows is this: it wasn't her. But rumors to the contrary are buzzing. Unless she can discover the lovers' true identity, she'll be forced to marry Piers Brandon, Lord Granville--the coldest, most arrogantly handsome gentleman she's ever had the misfortune to embrace. When it comes to emotion, the man hasn't got a clue.

But as they set about finding the mystery lovers, Piers reveals a few secrets of his own. The oh-so-proper marquess can pick locks, land punches, tease with sly wit . . . and melt a woman's knees with a single kiss. The only thing he guards more fiercely than Charlotte's safety is the truth about his dark past.

Their passion is intense. The danger is real. Soon Charlotte's feeling torn. Will she risk all to prove her innocence? Or surrender it to a man who's sworn to never love?

Review: 5/5 for When a Scot Ties the Knot (Castles Ever After #3) by Tessa Dare
When a Scot Ties the Knot - Tessa Dare

I know I’m late to the party and that there is nothing I could possible say that hasn’t already been said about this book but it was oh so good! I had the pleasure of listening the audio format and the narrator did a superb job! She nailed all the accents and gave each character its unique and distinctive voice.

 

Maddie is captivating from the beginning. Her imagination and innocence grabbed me from page one. As the story progressed and she matured with time, she only became more endearing. She is one of those girls that even though naïve she was not silly or acted as a simpleton. I suppose her “disability” –she suffered from panic attacks- only made her more endearing in my eyes. I know from experience how disabling some episodes can be and that made her a more relatable character as well.
And Logan, can we say W-O-W! Although he started as an infuriating man that pushed his way into Maddie’s life by way of blackmail he turned out to be all “mushy” inside. He was just pretending to be a hard man because of the life he’d lived and because he was afraid to love for fear of rejection. But the more he tried to be unlovable, the more Maddie (and I) fell in love with him. Because really, who wouldn’t fall in love with a man that likes reading?
Secondary characters were all a riot but also engaging. They all had their own stories to tell and contrary to other stories where too much of others overpower the plot of the main characters, in this case it just added luster to the main story.

 

I could go on and on and on about all the things I loved about this book but suffice to say that it was funny, romantic, and tug-at-your-heartstrings kind of book; the kind of book you can’t stop thinking about long after the last page was turned, or in my case the last second was played.
