About Tessa

Tessa DeVante

Author. Canadian. Writer of Steamy Contemporary Romance.

Like stories with strong, professional women with beautiful flaws but a hunger for life? I’ve got you covered.

Taking a complex character, adding a liberal dose of chemistry, and stirring it all up is one of my favourite activities. No perfection here, but a touch of drama and some slices of real life all add to the journeys of my heroines.

The Love Me Collection consists of stand-alone full-length novels that can be read in any order. Each novel is a brand new couple with a fresh new story, all set in Canada. They are a perfect light read whether you’re cuddled in front of the fire, lounging on a tropical beach, or hiding under the covers.

Dive in to love with my free novella, The Bridesmaid Lotto, or dig deeper with Love Me Ella (Book 1) or Love Me Raine (Book 2).

The Bridesmaid Lotto

Rowan Michaels never considered Connor Ashton as more than a friend. During their university days, he always had a new love interest, a revolving door of women. She refused to be one of them, and he never seemed interested.

When their formerly tight-knit group meets again to celebrate the wedding of one of their own, she’s tempted to sample the goods. Connor looks better than ever, and he’s turning on the charm. What harm could come from one night with the hottest man at the wedding?

Plenty, as fate would have it. When the reason for Connor’s sudden interest comes to light, Rowan is heartbroken. Her miscalculation might cost her one best friend, her place in her bestie’s wedding, and her last shred of dignity.

Can she forgive and forget? What’s a bridesmaid to do?
