Fan Girl Friday

June 11, 2010 | Fan Girl Friday

Tessa Dare is a new to me author. One Dance With A Duke is a charming, well-crafted regency romance. Her characters are rounded and deftly portrayed. In the first quarter of the book, she surprised me–in a good way–often enough to keep me turning pages far longer into the night than I should.

Midway through the story, I grew weary of the lack of action. By this time the couple is married and the conflict between them feels much too thin to be keeping them apart. Internal monologues are a staple in many romances. They work well within the conventions of the genre. But with me, a little internal dialogue goes a long way. Ms. Dare provides a steady stream of the heroine’s thoughts.
