Register for Meet Romance Author Tessa Dare
Tessa Dare, the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of more than twenty historical romances will talk about her work and and the genre of romance. Mixing wit, sensuality, and emotion, Tessa writes Regency-set romance novels that feel relatable to modern readers. With her bestselling Spindle Cove, Castles Ever After, and Girl Meets Duke series, she has had great fun creating heroines who defy the conventions of their time—engaging in “unladylike” pursuits that range from paleontology to beer-making—and dreaming up the strong-willed, sexy heroes who find their hearts ensnared by them.
