Top Ten Most Heartwarming Reads by Red Magazine

‘I absolutely adored it. I laughed out loud numerous times… Love her writing.’ Jodi Picoult on The Governess Game

‘I love Tessa Dare who writes sassy, salty heroines with plenty of backbone’ Sarra Manning on The Wallflower Wager for RED ONLINE

Lady Penelope cares for all creatures.
Gabriel Duke cares for no one.
Can they care for each other?

Wealthy and ruthless, Gabriel Duke had to fight his way from the lowliest slums to the pinnacle of high society—and now, with a reputation as the ‘Duke of Ruin’, he wants to get even.

Loyal and passionate, Lady Penelope Campion never met a lost or wounded creature she wouldn’t take into her home, and her heart.

When her imposing—and attractive—new neighbour demands she remove her animals, Penny resists his demand and makes a counter-offer. She will part with her precious charges, if he can find them loving homes!

Rising to the challenge, Gabriel does not expect such a simple task to result in intimacy with Penny, and soon he finds this spirited spinster is not the push-over he thought.

But Gabe is not the only one with a past he’d rather forget. And if Penny is intent on saving Gabe, perhaps he might just need to save her first…

Readers Love Tessa Dare

‘When it comes to historical romance, for me, no one beats Tessa Dare and this is definitely one of her best. It sparkles with all of Dare's usual humour and wit, and the romance is hot, hot, hot. I started this on my way home from work one Thursday evening and had the whole thing finished that night.

I couldn’t put it down
5 Star

‘The main characters, Gabriel and Lady Penelope, are to die for – I loved their first meeting so much. It was funny yet cute and sexy all at the same time…Their story is beautiful
4 Star

I like this style of fiction – always have since Georgette Heyer times and these series of novels are only reminding me of her but with a small diversion towards modern times – the heroines are less missish and more feisty and not afraid to have sex with their suitors.
I am also, always a sucker for stories with cute animals and hedgehogs in pockets are the best yet’
