About the Author

Tessa Dare is the New York Times bestselling, award-winning author of more than a dozen historical romances. A librarian by training and a book-lover at heart, Tessa makes her home in Southern California, where she shares a cozy, cluttered bungalow with her husband, their two children, and a pair of cosmic kittens.

Mary Jane Wells trained as an actress at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama. Work in the UK embraced a balance of theatre, film, and TV. Latterly, she was the series voice for BBC3's My Childhood, which won a BAFTA, the campaign voice for many companies, and Cate Blanchett's voicematch at Dreamworks. She is also the voice of the 2 books that officially inspired Downton Abbey, The Girl Who Saved Christmas, and more.


Mary Jane Wells skillfully voices the characters, their attitudes and attributes enlivened throughout her performance. Wells' portrayals highlight Ash's pompous attitude, Emma's intelligent, humorous personality, and butler Mr. Khan's caring yet long-suffering disposition. The listener feels transported to the Regency-era London home-and bedroom-of the Duke and Duchess of Ashbury. A fun story with a delightful narration.

You'll laugh and cry and everything in between while reading this daring reimagination of Beauty and the Beast that is pure romance at its best. Dare's gift for crafting humorous repartee is matched by her talent for writing deeply emotional stories filled with steamy love scenes. The well-drawn characters-including a strong heroine, brooding hero, meddlesome butler, and stray cat-along with the witty dialogue, keep the pages flying and readers highly satisfied.

Sexy, tender, and wickedly funny, Dare's newest offering is a spirited tale with a Beauty-and-the-Beast theme and the perfect launch for her latest series.

-- "Library Journal (starred review)"

Dare once again works her own irresistible brand of magic by taking a cast of richly nuanced characters, a deliciously clever plot...and a generous measure of addictively tart wit, and then she spins the whole thing into pure literary gold.
