After his stint in the army, being tortured as a prisoner of war, he could never manage to stay in one place for a very long time. Kyle has a chance encounter with a beautiful woman at a Renaissance fair and EVERYTHING he ever believed in changes in the blink of an eye. 5 Sensual Stars for "Renaissance Man"... when first prize is actually the woman who steals your heart away.
This novella packs a punch in a very small package. It’s got fun and drama and intrigue. And best of all, it starts at a renaissance fair! Cameron is all for spending time with her future step-dad. Well, she did until her shares that she’s the prize in a jousting competition. Kyle sees Cameron and is instantly amused and smitten. Meeting her seems like a good way to end his time in Tennessee. However, in the span of a day, the commitment-phobe is convinced that Cameron is “the one”. There’s a lot of fun in this book. The language is witty and the attraction is palpable. It also doesn’t hurt that the sex scenes are hotter than hot. I’m an unabashed fan of Ms Bailey’s work and this novella was a nice way to finish the series that started with Getaway Girl.
Renaissance Man by Tessa Bailey is a standalone blue-collar inst-love romance novella and the second book on the Read Me Romance podcast.
Kyle is at a renaissance fair with his friends under protest, that is, until he sees a beautiful girl in a floaty pink dress upside down on a fence, stuck. Being the ex-military hero that he is - he must rescue her (wink) and in the process these two exchange some off-the-charts chemistry. Deciding that he must win this woman he cajoles his way into the Jousting competition in an effort to win a date with her as the prize. I hope she is aware he plans to do MUCH more than grab a meal with her - such as make HER the meal!!!

Read this if you like Tessa Bailey, if you like ren fairs, or if you're in the mood for a sweet, smutty meet-cute with no big complications or angsting. 4 stars instead of 5 because I think this book would have been stronger with a HFN instead of a full HEA, just because it's so short. But I highly recommend it anyway.
Not quite the usual standard of Tessa Bailey. Hugely disappointing as normally her books are so enjoyable. It’s a short tale of a whirlwind romance when the majority of the story takes place in the epilogue. Not really sure what this was other than poor.
What a fun read! I love the chemistry between Kyle and Cameron. The humor and heat. Tessa Bailey has deftly crafted an adorable duo with formidable sparks in this story, and I highly recommend it.
