Tessa Dare Books Overview
In One Dance with a Duke the first novel in Tessa Dare’s delightful new trilogy secrets and scandals tempt the irresistible rogues of the Stud Club to gamble everything for love. A handsome and reclusive horse breeder, Spencer Dumarque, the fourth Duke of Morland, is a member of the exclusive Stud Club, an organization so select it has only ten members yet membership is attainable to anyone with luck. And Spencer has plenty of it, along with an obsession with a prize horse, a dark secret, and, now, a reputation as the dashing Duke of Midnight. Each evening he selects one lady for a breathtaking midnight waltz. But none of the women catch his interest, and nobody ever bests the duke until Lady Amelia d Orsay tries her luck. In a moment of desperation, the unconventional beauty claims the duke s dance and unwittingly steals his heart. When Amelia demands that Spencer forgive her scapegrace brother s debts, she never imagines that her game of wits and words will lead to breathless passion and a steamy proposal. Still, Spencer is a man of mystery, perhaps connected to the shocking murder of the Stud Club s founder. Will Amelia lose her heart in this reckless wager or win everlasting love?
The daring members of the Stud Club are reckless gamblers and no strangers to risk until love raises the stakes in Twice Tempted by a Rogue. Luck is a double edged sword for brooding war hero Rhys St. Maur. His death wish went unanswered on the battlefield, while fate allowed the murder of his good friend in the elite gentlemen’s society known as the Stud Club. Out of options, Rhys returns to his ancestral home on the moors of Devonshire, expecting anything but a chance at redemption in the arms of a beautiful innkeeper who dares him to take on the demons of his past and the sweet temptation of a woman s love. Meredith Maddox believes in hard work, not fate, and romance isn t part of her plan. But when Rhys returns, battle scarred, world weary, and more dangerously attractive than ever, the lovely widow is torn between determination and desire. As a deep mystery and dangerous smugglers threaten much more than their passionate reckoning, Meredith discovers that she must trust everything to a wager her heart placed long ago.
In Tessa Dare’s dazzling new trilogy, the men of the Stud Club live and play by their own rules until passion changes the game. The bast*ard son of a nobleman, Julian Bellamy is now polished to perfection, enthralling the ton with wit and charm while clandestinely plotting to ruin the lords, ravish the ladies, and have the last laugh on a society that once spurned him. But after meeting Leo Chatwick, a decent man and founder of an elite gentlemen s club, and Lily, Leo s enchanting sister, Julian reconsiders his wild ways. And when Leo s tragic murder demands that Julian hunt for justice, he vows to see the woman he secretly loves married to a man of her own class. Lily, however, has a very different husband in mind. She s loved Julian forever, adores the man beneath the rakish fa ade, and wants to savor the delicious attraction they share as his wife. His insistence on marrying her off only reinforces her intent to prove that he is the only man for her. Obsessed with catching a killer, Julian sinks back to the gutters of his youth, forcing Lily to reach out with a sweet, reckless passion Julian can t resist. Can her desire for a scoundrel save them both or will dangerous secrets threaten more than their tender love?
In this lush and seductive novel, exciting new author Tessa Dare takes desire to brazen heights. Ever the bold adventuress, Lucy Waltham has decided to go hunting for a husband. But first she needs some target practice. So she turns to her brother’s best friend, Jeremy Trescott, the Earl of Kendall, to hone her seductive wiles on him before setting her sights on another man. But her practice kisses spark a smoldering passion one that could send all her plans up in smoke. Jeremy has an influential title, a vast fortune, and a painful past full of long buried secrets. He keeps a safe distance from his own emotions, but to distract Lucy from her reckless scheming, he must give his passions free rein. Their sensual battle of wills is as maddening as it is delicious, but the longer he succeeds in managing the headstrong temptress, the closer Jeremy comes to losing control. When scandal breaks, can he bring himself to abandon Lucy to her ruin? Or will he risk his heart and claim her for his own?
New author Tessa Dare takes passion to the high seas in this steamy tale of a runaway bride and a devilishly disarming privateer. Desperate to escape a loveless marriage and society’s constraints, pampered heiress Sophia Hathaway jilts her groom, packs up her paints and sketchbook, and assumes a new identity, posing as a governess to secure passage on the Aphrodite. She wants a life of her own: unsheltered, unconventional, uninhibited. But it s one thing to sketch her most wanton fantasies, and quite another to face the dangerously handsome libertine who would steal both her virtue and her gold. To any well bred lady, Benedict Gray Grayson is trouble in snug fitting boots. A conscienceless scoundrel who sails the seas for pleasure and profit, Gray lives for conquest until Sophia s perception and artistry stir his heart. Suddenly he ll brave sharks, fire, storm, and sea just to keep her at his side. She s beautiful, refined, and ripe for seduction. Could this counterfeit governess be a rogue s redemption? Or will the runaway heiress s secrets destroy their only chance at love?
Tessa Dare spins a witty, wanton tale of passion and conquest, as a reformer and a rake find unexpected love. Only one thing could convince Sir Tobias Aldridge, an incorrigible libertine, to profess undying fidelity to a woman he’s just met. Revenge. What better way to get back at an enemy than by stealing the scoundrel s sister? Not that Toby finds it a chore, seducing a beguiling, sultry beauty freshly arrived from the West Indies. When the prize is Isabel Grayson, vengeance is doubly rewarding. Isabel is determined to marry a wealthy, powerful lord and become a lady of influence, using her rank and fortune to fight social injustice. Sir Toby, with his paltry title and infamous reputation, is unsuitable husband material but he makes her blood race, her heart pound, and her long buried passions come to the surface. If she can reform the charming devil, she ll get exactly what she craves: society s respect. But it s a dangerous gamble. For if Toby wins this battle of persuasion, Isabel could lose her heart.
