Dare will have every reader wishing to live in Spindle Cove. This is a story so beautifully written, so lovingly crafted, and so touching that, like Judith McNaught, Dare reminds readers of the wondrous feeling of falling in love. Readers will feel complete when they come to the deep-sigh and tears-of-joy ending.-- "RT Book Reviews (4 1/2 stars, Top Pick!)"
Dare's captivating plotline is enlivened by multi-dimensional characters, while the love story is enhanced by the mysteries of its heroine's past.-- "Publishers Weekly (starred review)" --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
From the Back Cover
A temporary engagement, a lifetime in the making . . .
After years of fending for herself, Kate Taylor found friendship and acceptance in Spindle Cove—but she never stopped yearning for love. The very last place she'd look for it is in the arms of Corporal Thorne. The militia commander is as stone cold as he is brutally handsome. But when mysterious strangers come searching for Kate, Thorne steps forward as her fiancé. He claims to have only Kate's safety in mind. So why is there smoldering passion in his kiss?
Long ago, Samuel Thorne devoted his life to guarding Kate's happiness. He wants what's best for her, and he knows it's not marriage to a man like him. To outlast their temporary engagement, he must keep his hands off her tempting body and lock her warm smiles out of his withered heart. It's the toughest battle of this hardened warrior's life . . . and the first he seems destined to lose.--This text refers to the mass_market edition.

I'm thinking this is going to be my favorite story in the Spindle Cove series 💜💜
Now the question is... Will Evan Gramercy, Marquess Drewe have his own story?!?! I hope, I hope, I hope!!!
Just as Kate is reminded by a former schoolmarm that she is 'marked by shame' (a reference to her birthmark?) and will never be wanted by family or by a lover, suddenly (that very day, gasp!) the unconventional Gramercy siblings** arrive in Spindle Cove prepared to claim her as long lost kin, and, not trusting them and needing to have standing to protect her, Thorne announces that he and Kate are betrothed. Viola: instant family and lover!
Of course, it's nowhere near that easy, and the twists of fate and the misunderstandings that act as obstacles to Happy Ever After are entertaining but not especially believable. I personally didn't really enjoy the ending (To quote a cheesy movie from my adolescence, The Cutting Edge, "Naked male insecurity really leaves me cold"), but Tessa Dare's dialogue is always snappy (even if sometimes distractingly anachronistic), and her writing always sweeps me away, even if up on later reflection I am a bit more jaded.
**SPOILER (sort of, only very tangentially):
One of the Gramercy siblings, Harry, is a lesbian who wears trousers and has chosen her childhood governess as life partner. While it is totally ridiculous that her family would treat this with as much equanimity as they apparently did (particularly when the truth of Kate's past, when it is revealed, is so offensive to the leader of the Gramercy clan, brother Evan), as a lesbian myself, I would luuuuuuurrrrvve for Dare to write a sequel/prequel telling Harry's story. I'm not going to hold my breath--Evan is the sibling who most screams "Sequel Bait!", and I don't know whether the more mainstream romance readers would go for that--but oh, it could be so much fun.

I love the characters in these books Spindle Cove has lots of misfits living there. They have funny, make you laugh, the interaction a d conversation with each other being them to life.
Having been given a taste of Kate and Thorne's relationship from the other book, 'A week to be wicked', I ordered this book as soon as I had it completed. And is proved and even better read than the first.
I loved the relationship between Kate and Thorne and I couldn't put it done until finished. Got no work done that day. But it was well worth it and highly recommend it.
