We have all seen the avid reader who can read their way through most any situation......meals, bedtime, through classes, trips or any other activity. That was the way American author, Tessa Dare, got through her growing up years with parents who were constantly on the move. That comfort found in reading is what brought her to her career as a novelist. She also became a librarian where she was surrounded by books.
Dare is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of historical romance. Her novels mix humor, sensuality, and emotion that are relatable to modern readers. Her bestsellers are her "Sprinkle Cove", "Castles Ever After", and "Girl Meets Duke" series. Dare enjoys creating heroines who are not always ladylike. She enjoys dreaming up strong, willful, sexy heroes who find their hearts ensnared by those unconventional women.
Dare works as a part-time librarian and resides in Southern California with her husband and two children.
