Hi there! I’m Tamara Hughes, and I’m so glad you stopped by! Feel free to take a look around.

I currently have two historical romances available through Entangled publishing. Once Upon a Masquerade is a Cinderella murder mystery set in 1883 New York City, and Tempting the Pirate (the first book in the Love on the High Seas trilogy) is set in the Atlantic Ocean near the Caribbean: He loves women. She sorely distrusts men. Who will prevail?

Beauty’s Curse, the second book in the Love on the High Seas series will be released on Tuesday, June 9th, but it’s available for pre-order as an ebook now.

Beauty's Curse[1]England, 1722
Amelia Archer will be the ruin of her family. Her extraordinary bad luck is burden enough, but her sweet, trusting nature often lands her in impossible scrapes. After the last straw, Amelia’s harried father ships his unfortunate daughter off to the Colonies to live with her aunt. But wherever Amelia goes, bad luck is sure to follow…

Pirate David Lamont is taken with the lovely young Englishwoman the moment she’s pulled aboard from her sinking vessel. But sailors are already a superstitious lot and Amelia is unwelcome. In a feat of chivalry, David defends and claims her for himself…

Now their fortunes—for good or ill—are invariably tied. But as much as she longs for him, Amelia cannot allow a romance. For a lady of misfortune can only bring ruin to those she loves…

Find it at: Amazon, Barnes&Noble, iBookstore, and Kobo
