An Author’s Listicle: Favorite Duets with Tara Leigh


Duets are a special kind of reading experience: You get the excitement and thrill of a cliffhanger with the reassurance that all will be resolved in the next book, and they are perfect for the impatient or commitment-phobic reader. I’m always on the lookout for the next stellar duet to read and recommend, and I’m excited to share one that I’ve just started and am halfway through – Tara Leigh’s The Wages of Sin. The first installment, Cruel Sanctuary, is out today and the second, Corrupt Savior, releases on May 13, and it is a sinfully sexy, unpredictable must-read with an engrossing plot.

In order to celebrate its release and the duet, Tara is joining me today at Frolic, and we’re recommending some of our all-time favorite 2-book series.

The Ribbon duet by Pepper Winters: The Boy & His Ribbon and The Girl & Her Ren

Tara: Pepper Winters explores love and friendship and fate and tragedy so deeply in this duet. She breaks your heart into a million pieces before putting you back together in an entirely different way.

Real Dirty duet by Meghan March: Real Dirty and Real Sexy

Mary: The Real Dirty duet has it all: passionate and heartfelt romance, scorching-hot chemistry and a riveting and unpredictable story; and it makes sleep feel overrated. (Recommended on USA Today Happy Ever After blog on June 8, 2017.)

The Retrieval duet by Aly Martinez: Retrieval and Transfer

Tara: I was hooked from the very first page. Aly Martinez takes a ripped-from-the-headlines type story and twists the knife with each page. Unputdownable.

The Darkest Sunrise duet by Aly Martinez: The Darkest Sunrise and The Brightest Sunset

Mary: The Darkest Sunrise duet is a mesmerizing and poignant journey of love, heartbreak and resurrection, and readers should prepare themselves to be astounded and to lose all sense of time and place as they become submerged in Aly Martinez’s enthralling and powerful writing.

The Transcend duet by Jewel E. Ann: Transcend and Epoch

Tara: Jewel E. Ann creates unbelievable quirky, relatable characters you can’t help but fall in love with. Her stories never go where I think they’re going—and I love that!

The Smoke & Mirrors duet by Jodi Ellen Malpas: The Controversial Princess and His True Queen

Mary: Jodi Ellen Malpas gives her readers an unforgettable experience with The Smoke & Mirrors duet – a twisty, unpredictable plot, characters you’ll fall in love with, scorching hot passion, and an EPIC love story.

What He Doesn’t Know duet by Kandi Steiner: What He Doesn’t Know and What He Always Knew

Tara: I love angst and a good ugly cry so therefore I also love Kandi Steiner. She writes stories you think about long after the last page, and this duet is no exception.

Blue Line duet by Meghan Quinn: The Downside of Love and The Upside of Falling

Mary: I’ve never read anything quite like this brilliant, well-conceived, intensely compelling and beautifully written story, and it slayed me in the best ways possible. I laughed, cried and smiled so much that I was emotionally exhausted and deeply satisfied by its epic conclusion. (Recommended on USA Today Happy Ever After blog on July 5, 2018.)

About Tara:

Tara Leigh is a multi-published author of steamy contemporary romance. A former banker on Wall Street, she graduated from Washington University and holds an MBA from Columbia Business School, but she much prefers spending her days with fictional boyfriends than analyzing financial spreadsheets. Tara currently lives in Fairfield County, Connecticut, with her husband, children and fur-baby, Pixie.

Cruel Sanctuary by Tara Leigh, out now!

They say New York City is the Devil’s Playground.
They’re wrong.
This city belongs to me.
And so does Aislinn Granville. 

She is a pampered politician’s daughter.
A decorative ornament, 
raised to smile and nod and do what she’s told.

Except… she doesn’t. Not with me. Ever.

In this city full of thugs and thieves, I’ve kept Aislinn safe.
From my enemies.
From me.

Until now.
