Welcome to the official website of Jess Michaels,
10-Time USA TODAY bestselling author of historical romance.

She/her/hers are my pronouns. I write historical romance set in the Regency period that has been steaming up e-readers and paperback pages since 2005! I've written over 100 books. Want to know more? Read the formal bio on this page.

 


What about my books?

First, there are over 100 of them published (some were published under Jenna Petersen and Jesse Petersen, but most as Jess). I love to write confident, competent and oh-so-super-sexy heroes and smart, capable and strong heroines who challenge them. They’re always stronger together and can overcome anything! If you like sexy and emotional historical romance, you’ve come to the right place.

Their Bride

Old friends and sometimes secret lovers, Benedict Norfolk and Darrius Warwick have a fraught relationship. Benedict wants more, Darrius always resists. But they are thrown together when Darrius’s brother, the Viscount Warwick, abandons his intended bride, Vanessa Gardner, not an hour before their wedding. They both know a marriage to one of them will be the only answer to save her from the consequences of the viscount’s bitter actions.

Vanessa was rejected before and she knows that this abandonment means utter ruination, and yet she cannot be sad. She never felt desire for the viscount…only a confusing and forbidden attraction to both Darrius and Benedict. So when the men offer her a chance to choose between them, and to indulge herself in every pleasure before she does so…she cannot refuse.

Tangled desires, long-repressed passion and the knowledge that they must soon decide the future collide between these three. But when the unthinkable happens, they will have to determine whether three hearts can make one lifetime, or if one of them will be shut out forever.
