Jess Michaels, Bestselling Author of Historical Romance

Welcome to the official website of Jess Michaels, 10-Time USA TODAY bestselling author of historical romance and all around geeky human person. She/her. Read the formal bio here.

What about my books? First, there are over 80 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 (who aren’t assholes) and smart, capable and strong heroines who challenge them. They’re always stronger together and can overcome anything! Most of my books are M/F, but I do have some M/M and MMF books. I sometimes put my characters through hell, but can’t help but write happily ever afters. If you like sexy and emotional historical romance, you’ve come to the right place. Welcome and enjoy!
