Product description


Dare starts her new series with a unique storyline, a sweet, fun nod to literary fandom, and two main characters who are perfect for each other yet never would have met if they weren’t each at a nadir in life’s journey. (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))

I think this is a truly unique historical that will appeal to readers who aren’t often historical fans. (Smart Bitches Trashy Books)

This book is already in my top books for 2014. This new series of Tessa Dare’s is off to an amazing start! (Smexy Books)

Dare’s lyrical writing and expert, intense character development make this a romance to be savored with the eager expectation of future series installments (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

Splendidly talented Dare creates cleverly written dialogue, exceptionally appealing characters, and an engaging plot that gives a wink toward Beauty and the Beast and a nod to fandom, all key components in this wickedly funny and soul-satisfyingly romantic novel, the perfect launch to Dare’s new Castles Ever After series. (Booklist (starred review))

Tessa Dare’s first instalment in the new Castles Ever After series, ROMANCING THE DUKE will have readers clearing their keeper shelf just to make room for this little gem! Jam- packed with hilarious banter, Dare’s trademark humor is showcased in its full glory. (Fresh Fiction)

From the Back Cover

As the daughter of a famed author, Isolde Ophelia Goodnight grew up on tales of brave knights and fair maidens.  She never doubted romance would be in her future, too.  The storybooks offered endless possibilities.

And as she grew older, Izzy crossed them off.  One by one by one.

  • Ugly duckling turned swan?
  • Abducted by handsome highwayman?
  • Rescued from drudgery by charming prince?

No, no, and . . . Heh.

Now Izzys given up yearning for romance. Shell settle for a roof over her head.  What fairy tales are left over for an impoverished twenty-six year-old woman whos never even been kissed?

This one.
