That’s just one of the quotes Tiffany Clare received for her first published novel, The Surrender Of A Lady.  Tiffany is my featured author on the blog today, and I’m really happy about that—not only because she’s a good friend of mine, but because she writes fabulously sensual and emotionally complex historical romances set in the Victorian period.

Tiffany exploded on the romance scene with her debut, the story of a mother determined to do whatever she must to save her young son.

Here’s what Fresh Fiction had to say about The Surrender of a Lady:

Tiffany Clare has written an exceptionally exciting and heart-wrenching story of devotion and survival of a young mother, sold into the most despicable of circumstances. Elena’s bravery and determination is unequaled. Her love and devotion for her son, as well as love for her long-lost fiancé, tears her apart. I found this to be fast-paced, full of suspense and totally exciting with each turn of the page. A new and refreshing plot has been woven for the reader.

On top of all that, it’s an incredibly sensual read.  If you like your historical romances spicy, you’re going to love Tiffany’s books.

Tiffany’s second book was The Seduction of His Wife, which received a Top Pick from Night Owl Reviews:

Manipulating sisters, sinister plots and a pending divorce make this romance a bit different than your normal run of the mill romances. The initial scenes will draw you in only to entice you to stay and read more and more. Soon you’ll find yourself riveted to this story only to find you have reached the end.


Fortunately for her readers, Tiffany has a new book out.  It’s called The Secret Desires of a Governess.

I am so there!  Anything to do with governesses and brooding, mysterious employers has me totally hooked.  Can you say Jane Eyre?  Yeah, baby!

Here’s the blurb:


From the moment Abby meets her new employer—the mysterious, brooding Earl of Brendall—she is appalled by his brutish manner…and even moreso by her own attraction to him. Has she lost her senses? As a governess, Abby has no choice but to play by the rules. But as a woman, she cannot deny the fiery sensations he ignites—or the fantasies he inspires…


From the moment Elliott lays eyes on his new young governess, he knows he’s in trouble. Abby is intelligent, defiant, and utterly captivating, though Elliott must do his very best to resist her. But as the two grow closer, the passion burns hotter. Soon, the only thing that can destroy their love is the darkest secret of his past—and the secret desires of a governess…

Sigh!  Sounds great, doesn’t it?  You can read all about Tiffany’s books on her website, which includes excerpts and buy links.  And while you’re there check out the link to her group blog, Vauxhall Vixens, a really fun place to hang out with a gang of feisty wenches.

Tiffany’s stories have been called “bold,” “daring,” and “exciting.”  If you’re looking for historical romances that push the envelope—while still being totally romantic and sexy—you should definitely check out her books.
