Romancing the Duke

I have a few favorite authors, and Tessa Dare is definitely in my top ten. Her latest, Romancing the Duke, maintains her ranking with ease.

The heroine is a rarity in romance, an ugly duckling who doesn’t stretch our credulity by turning into a swan. Her self-described plain face doesn’t matter when the duke of the title is all but blind.

Izzy brings with her an indomitable spirit, a kind heart, and a motley crew of people who like to travel around wearing costumes, sort of Regency Trekkies on horseback. The duke is devastatingly handsome in a shaggy and craggy way. Izzy manages to tidy him up along with his decrepit castle with not a moment to spare.

Oh, how I wish I had Izzy’s imagination, or Tessa’s.
