Signing Info + Giveaway: Tessa Dare in Manila!

Bookish Filipinos, yes! Tessa Dare is coming to the Philippines! Romance fans, rejoice!

New York Times bestselling author Tessa Dare book signing at Powerbooks

Bestselling and award-winning historical romance novelist Tessa Dare is set to do a talk and book signing event on June 27, 2015 at 3 p.m. in Powerbooks, Greenbelt 4. Registration starts at 10 a.m. Only books purchased from Powerbooks, National Book Store and National Book Store Express will be accommodated. 

‘Romancing the Duke’, the first book in Tessa Dare’s latest series ‘Castles Ever After’, is described by Publishers Weekly as a “a unique twist to a fairy tale, complete with an ancient castle, a damsel in distress, and a wounded hero”. Isolde Ophelia Goodnight grew up on tales of brave knights and fair maidens being the daughter of a well-known author. As her storybooks offered endless possibilities, she never doubted romance would soon be part of her life. As time passes by, she gives up yearning for romance and the never-been-kissed woman settles for a roof over her head. The series continues in ‘Say Yes to the Marquess’, which was released in December, and in ‘When a Scot Ties the Knot’, which will be released in August. 

Tessa Dare is the bestselling and award-winning author of more than a dozen historical romances including the ‘Spindle Cove’ series (‘A Night to Surrender’, ‘A Week to be Wicked’, ‘A Lady by Midnight’, ‘Beauty and the Blacksmith’, and ‘Any Duchess Will Do’), ‘The Stud Club’ trilogy (‘One Dance with a Duke’, ‘Twice Tempted by a Rogue’ and ‘Three Nights with a Scoundrel’), ‘The Wanton Dairymaid’ trilogy (‘Goddess of the Hunt’, ‘Surrender of a Siren’, and ‘Lady of Persuasion’), ‘Scandalous, Dissolute, No-Good Mr. Right’, and the ‘Castles Ever After’ series.  Her books bagged numerous accolades including Romance Writers of America’s RITA® award and have been translated in several languages. She is a librarian by training and a booklover at heart. Married to a Filipino, Tessa worked at a library in the Philippines and has recently visited Tacloban. 

The event is made possible in partnership with Raffles Makati.
