Tessa Dare has become one of my favorite authors. Her latest novel When a Scot Ties the Knot is full of fun. The variations on the name Captain MacKenzie alone made me laugh out loud a time or two.
I am a major scaredy cat when it comes to anything creepy or crawly. I run shrieking when I see such a one. Ordinarily, I wouldn’t even like to read about them. For this book, I gladly made an exception. These are the very things Maddie surrounds herself with. She even has a pair of lobsters-lobsters!-as pets.
Romantic couples always complement each other’s personalities. Think “You fulfull me.” Dare describes how this process works in a way I haven’t read before. Maddie also draws all those critters. To complete a likeness, she has to discover where the empty spaces are within and around her subject. She does the same with Logan.
And what a braw hero he is.
Dare won the 2015 RITA for short historical romance. She may have another award winner on her hands with this one. Do you pay attention to awards when you choose what book to read?
