Oh man, I LOVED this book. I'd be hard-pressed to name a favorite by Tessa Dare, but I'd wager a guess that this one is near the top of the list. The characters are wonderful, the humor is great, and the chemistry is 🔥. I adored every second! #romantsy

Several bets occur, which leaves a serving girl receiving duchess lessons from a Duke's mother, while the girl tries her best to fail fantastically. But this is a romance, so we all know how it ends. Another great book from Spindle Cove.

The Duke of Halford refuses to marry, so his mother takes him to “Spinster Cove” and tells him to choose a bride. She will turn her into a duchess. Touches of Pygmalion and an interesting cast of characters.

LectricSheep Spinster Cove sounds like my kind of place! 😂 1y

Spindle Cove series #4 and my favorite so far. My Fair Lady vibes (or Pygmalion if you prefer the play) are strong in this book.

ReadZenRites Do you find that series needs to be read in order? 2y
Beckys_Books @ReadZenRites Not necessarily. Characters from 1& 2 do continue to appear in subsequent books, but it wouldn't really matter if read out of order. 2y

This is my favorite so far in the Spindle Cove series.
This had me laughing from the opening.
I started straightening up for company coming but when I picked up my book I got sidetracked. Fortunately it‘s family and they know me.

I've discovered that romance novels are good for when I want to read but am having major issues with my chronic migraines and can't concentrate on heavier things. Tessa Dare is one of my favorite #romantsy authors and damned if I didn't stay up too late reading this book in one sitting. I laughed out loud many times. Great characters, a heartwarming plot, wit, humor, and much needed HEA. 5 🌟

pppooraikul Aww, hope your migraine ease soon! 😘 2y
queerbookreader I've never been able to get into romance which makes me super sad, but yesterday I discovered this romance manga story and I'm top level excited to read it ❣❣❣ 2y

What is a mother to do ? Her son the Duke is miserable and obviously in need of a wife. Perhaps a sleeping potion and a spot of kidnapping is in order. A carriage ride to "Spinster Cove" and a room full of young ladies ready for Duchess "lessons". Of course the Duke chooses the serving girl. ( I'm a sucker for Pygmalion/ My Fair Lady type stories) Fun and frolics and plenty of ???

Never imagined myself reading a book with a cover like this 😂😂Really, though is was a fun quick read! If you like the My Fair Lady plotline and a little 🔥💗, you'll probably enjoy this one. Perfect between heavier reads.

Verity I love a historical romance, but the US covers are definitely an acquired taste! I've developed a sneaky soft spot for them, but I read them in the safely of the house (rather than on the train) because they're so cringey! The UK covers (if they have one) are often quite different. 3y

Rereading this book for the #LitsyAtoZ challenge, and as part of my Spindle Cove glom. I love this couple so much -- a serving girl from a country town, and a jaded duke. It's like My Fair Lady, but with a much more swoonable hero. http://fave.co/2iyOf1x

Mehso-so

I'm back and forth on this one. I finished it in under a day and it was beautifully written (the romance scenes were 🔥). But... I'm not a big fan of the 'Eliza Doolittle' esq stories. Taking an unfortunate woman and forcing her into your world and games for a chance at better always makes stories a little uncomfortable for me. I love Tessa's storytelling, this trope just isn't my cup of tea.

StephTKO I'm trying to break into the adult romance genre from YA and NA. Any suggestions? 3y
CatLadyBibliophile @StephTKO Sorry I just saw this!! What kind of genres/stories do you like? 3y
StephTKO @CatLadyBibliophile No worries - I don't have a real frame of reference for adult romance. But for YA/NA I like fantasy and paranormal... and a solid love triangle is the gold standard. I think I could get into historical. 3y

Annnnd here's my pick for set in a library! Pauline and her sister's dream is to start a lending library of their own in Spindle Cove and it leads to the absolute BEST big romantic gesture EVER! I will say no more, to avoid spoilers, but I'm just saying, all book lovers should give this a read. You'll probably find it as swoon-worthy as I did 😍 #seasonsreadings2016 #romantsy

EloisaJames I love the hero's gesture in the end! 3y
MeganB @EloisaJames it's so perfect for them! I just about died ❤️ 3y

My first Tessa Dare ( I know, I know 😉) and it was a great read. Loved the settings, the basic premise of Cinderella taming the Beast :)

The ending isn't one of your typical historical romance endings, the characters are complex and the romance is believable. I refuse to write proper review until I read it again, and I rarely reread a book but this one demands it because it's so good.
