#TBRChallenge January 2021 - Comfort Read *REVIEW*

 His Bride for the Taking by Tessa Dare is a historical romance novella that's been on my Kindle for awhile. It's surprising because Tessa Dare is one of my favorite romance authors so this is one I overlooked. She's the author who brought me back to reading historicals after a LONG time away from them.


I love Tessa Dare's writing style. She's easy to read, one chapter flowing to the next, gracefully fleshing out her characters and their conflicts. In a less skilled author's hands, this story would have been predictable. Certainly, the tropes are common: childhood crush, woman left at the altar, hero with daddy issues, JUST ONE BED... but she has enough surprises that the story is fresh and wonderfully comforting.

#TBRChallenge January 2021 - Comfort Read

To kick off the 2021 #TBRChallenge, I've selected His Bride for the Taking by Tessa Dare for my Comfort read. Tessa Dare is the author who started me reading historical romances again after a long time away from them.


I'll have more to say about it on the 20th, after I've read it, but I'm sure it will be delightful!
