Tessa Candle is a lawyer, world traveler, author of rollicking historical regency romance, and future patent-holder for the Rogue-o-matic Self-ripping Bodice. She also lays claim to the questionable distinction of being happily married to the descendant of a royal bastard.

When she is not slaving over the production and release of another novel, or conducting research by reading salacious historical romances with heroines who refuse to be victims, she divides her time between gardening, video editing, traveling, and meeting the outrageous demands of her two highly entitled Samoyed dogs. As they are cute and inclined to think too well of themselves, they were probably dukes in a prior incarnation.
