As the daughter of a famed author, Isolde Ophelia Goodnight grew up on tales of brave knights and fair maidens.  She never doubted romance would be in her future, too.  The storybooks offered endless possibilities.

And as she grew older, Izzy crossed them off.  One by one by one.

  • Ugly duckling turned swan?
  • Abducted by handsome highwayman?
  • Rescued from drudgery by charming prince?

No, no, and . . . Heh.

Now Izzy’s given up yearning for romance. She’ll settle for a roof over her head.  What fairy tales are left over for an impoverished twenty-six year-old woman who’s never even been kissed?

This one.

Doubt Not

I decided to purchase this book earlier today because I saw it was nominated for an award on Goodreads for 2014 being the best romance. I'm glad I did purchase it. I have read a couple of Miss Dares work here and there throughout the years and I can honestly say that this one is by far my favorite. I didn't think I would enjoy the story as much as I did by the time it was over and in fact the storyline itself left a lot to be desired for my typical favorites. However the style of writing and the characters really captured my attention. And the overall ability of the author to draw me in to this time and place, to make me feel like I was there with the characters experiencing each moment along with them made this story truly remarkable for me. I've read many stories of romance as that is my favorite genre and I can say that this one made me cry made me smile and made me want to read her next book in this new series right away. However after reading nonstop this wonderful book I think I will need to sleep a few hours before I purchased the next one, but doubt not .... I will.

Engaging, Endearing, Doubt Not

I've always enjoyed Tessa Dare's characters' humor and passion, the fact that they're not the typical blue stocking Ton. Her heroes and heroines are flawed, their courtship enjoyably awkward and their passionate nature boundless. This by far, is the best of them yet! I won't post a single detail about the love interests, it's far more delightful to discover it as they do. If you've read her Cove books, you know eccentricity is enticement enough to delve in page after enjoyable page. Doubt Not!

Friends, if you like Tessa Dare you will like this one. If you are unfamiliar with her work but like fun historical romance you will also probably like this one. That's all I have to say
