Tessa Dare is a USA Today and a New York Times bestselling historical romance author. She has composed fifteen books and novellas and made four different arrangements. In 2012, she won the prestigious RITA Award for Best Regency Historical Romance for her book “A Night to Surrender”. Dare works as a proletarian librarian and at present resides in Southern California, USA with her husband and two kids.
Her first seen piece of fiction was a work of Jane Austen fan fiction which she wrote under the nom de plume, Vangie. She later entered and then won the first Avon FanLit challenge. Her short story “Forget Me Not” was then published as the fourth chapter of These Wicked Games; the HarperCollins digital book. From this, Tessa Dare broke into publishing, as did the other victor in the competition, Courtney Milan.
Her debut novel, “Goddess of the Hunt”, was published by Ballantine. In 2011, she changed to Avon with the first book in the Spindle Cove series, “A Night to Surrender”.
At the point when inquired as to why she blends genuine feeling with humour, Dare went back to her first date with her husband, expressing that she kept running into a flagpole face-first. Over 10 years after the fact, she and her husband still joke about it. The juxtaposition of comic ludicrousness and profoundly-felt emotion felt genuine to her because it reflects her own particular life. This is the reason she does it.
In her youth, Tessa Dare’s family moved frequently and books became her one constant. She says they became her asylum, her entertainment, her source of information on everything and her home. At whatever point she felt desolate or removed, opening a familiar book gave her succour. She would read through supper, through classes, and into the darkest hours of the night.
