Book Description

5 Sep 2011 Spindle Cove (Book 1)

“An engaging love story with strong, believable characters. I can’t wait to read the sequels!”
—Mary Balogh

“Prepare to fall in love.”
—Julia Quinn

Presenting the winner of the Avon FanLit contest, the immensely talented Tessa Dare! Tessa’s first Avon historical romance, A Night to Surrender, is a love story to remember—kicking off her wonderfully inventive Spindle Cove series, set in England’s Regency Era in a small seaside resort town that caters specifically to ladies “of good breeding and delicate constitution.” Fans of Lisa Kleypas, Christina Dodd, and Liz Carlyle will delight in the passionate chaos that ensues when a dashing British officer, under orders, “invades” this community of strong-willed “spinsters,” only to discover he’s met his match in Miss Susannah Finch!

Product Description

From the Back Cover

Welcome to Spindle Cove, where the ladieswith delicate constitutions come for the sea air,and men in their prime are . . . nowhere to be found.

Or are they?

Spindle Cove is the destination of choice forcertain types of well-bred young ladies: the painfully shy, young wives disenchanted with matrimony,and young girls too enchanted with the wrong men; it is a haven for those who live there.

Victor Bramwell, the new Earl of Rycliff,knows he doesn’t belong here. So far as he can tell, there’s nothing in this place but spinsters . . .and sheep. But he has no choice, he has orders togather a militia. It’s a simple mission,made complicated by the spirited, exquisiteSusanna Finch—a woman who is determined tosave her personal utopia from the invasion ofBram’s makeshift army.

Susanna has no use for aggravating men;Bram has sworn off interfering women. The sceneis set for an epic battle…but who can be namedthe winner when both have so much to lose?

5.0 out of 5 stars My new favourite author. 10 May 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Great characters, tension, dilemma...and a lamb called "Dinner" - who could ask for more?
The first page starts with the hero, Bram, dispersing a flock of sheep who are blocking the road - by setting off dynamite...and the pace picks up from there. Bram gets caught in the explosion but luckily finds something soft to land on - Susannah!
This book is everything that historical romance is meant to be; humourous, sensuous, entertaining and enthralling.
I loved when the pristine tea shop is taken over by the men and turned into an tavern - The Rutting Bull, and then later when the conflict is resolved and a compromise is reached and it is renamed "The Bull and Blossom."
I have already downloaded the next book and am eager to start reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cannot wait to read the next in the series! 11 April 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Absolutely one of the best historical romances I have read in a very long time! Every character had relatable and lovable qualities, especialy the male and female protagonists, and each conversation written was realistic as well as highly amusing! Would suggest this novel to anyone in need of a book they cannot put down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tessa dare is a brilliant find 26 Mar 2013
By suzy
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the first book in the spindle cove series, but for some reason I read book two first and I'm kind of glad I did. I thoroughly enjoyed a week to be wicked and wondered if miss dare could pull of another book with bram and susanna, which of course she did. I didn't have as many laugh out loud moments as I did with book two, but it was still a really good book.

I'm going to try another book of miss dares in her other series and if this proves to be good too, miss dare will probably become an auto buy for me. She brings characters alive and you really feel that the h and h really fall in love.

Great great read. Loved it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sexy, seductive and witty romance 26 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Another cracker from Ms Dare. I love that the heroines in her novels are always the equal of the men despite the strictures of regency society. This is a great read. Highly recommended if you want great escapist entertainment.
