His Bride for the Taking
A Regency Romcom novella from bestselling author Tessa Dare
It's the first rule of friendship among gentlemen: Don't even think about touching your best friend's sister.
Sebastian, Lord Byrne, has never been one for rules. He's thought about touching Mary Clayton—a lot—and struggled to resist temptation. But when Mary's bridegroom leaves her waiting the altar, only Sebastian can save her from ruin. By marrying her himself.
In eleven years, he's never laid a finger on his best friend's sister. Now he's going to take her with both hands. To have, to hold…and to love.
This novella was originally published in Rogues Rush In, a Regency romance duet (2018), by Tessa Dare and Christi Caldwell
I love the story line and the characters are also very funny I was cracking up at the Cross’s dinner part 10/10 would recommend
A Great Twist on Romance
Very cute story. I loved how Mary wanted Sebastian so badly and how far she went. We all know the boy loves girl and do anything to get her, is a well told story. ‘His Bride for the Taking’ upended that and was great to read. Nice turns throughout and the written description of the flirting, foreplay, and passionate lovemaking manifested physical pulsating throughout. I could feel a second heart beat in my groin. Well done all around!
Characters more fully developed than in most short novels and very appealing plot. Excellent story.
