A temporary engagement, a lifetime in the making . . . After years of fending for herself, Kate Taylor found friendship and acceptance in Spindle Covebut 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 fianc. 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.

Not my favourite Tessa Dare, but still a fun romance with a lot of heat 🔥, likeable couple and a satisfying HEA ending. Always enjoy an epilogue 😀👍, it was a beautiful evening for a walk by the ocean.

What a suprise its another Tessa Dare, 4🌟

Kate Taylor has always been an orphan, but memories of her past tell her She Was once loved and she has clung to them with a vigour.

Corporal Thorne has been a brooding presence in Spindle Cove, but harbours secrets about Kate's past and her parents.

Okay, so this wasn‘t my favorite, but there were some highlights - a lesbian character! and some more creative sex acts. It doesn‘t take much to make me happy when it comes to a romance novel, I don‘t read them critically, I listen to them to give my brain a break. This one was pretty convoluted, but enough candy to satisfy this sweet tooth. 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼1/2

Another great Spindle Cove book. This time, Kate and Corporal Thorne must jump over several hurdles in order to make their relationship work.

Fun, but not my favorite of hers. I really liked her, he was kind of a pain. Maybe just not in the mood. Did take my mind off my crazy life right now 😄 #romantsy

My least favorite Tessa Dare novel so far, and honestly the first of hers that I'm not completely enamored with. Still a quick, entertaining read, but the characters fell pretty flat. I just wasn't buying their chemistry. #romantsy

EclecticBookLover I felt the same. It was one of her weaker ones. 2y
theresidentromantic This one felt well intentioned, but I really wanted them to end up adventuring in a cabin in Indiana. Like, I was rooting for that the whole time. Instead Thorne just becomes this man he doesn't want to be? It's hard, I read a book of hers and I love it and then I grab the next one and I'm like meh but I liked the first enough to continue reading another? 2y
theresidentromantic I did skip the second book here, because I really hated both Minerva and Payne. A lot. And I'm not sure I'm going to read it, tbh. 2y

I really liked the first half of this one but once Thorne started pushing Kate away with his "I'm not good enough for you" nonsense, it just became annoying and the ending fell flat.

I'm on a roll - Book 3 of the Spindle Cove series is finished. Not my favorite. Kate and Thorne enter into a fake engagement when Kate's long lost cousins come to Spindle Cove.Thorne is suspicious of their motives, but Kate is overjoyed to have a family. Thorne felt not quite right as a romantic hero, and the ending was disappointing. I'm going to read this series to the end though. Two more books to go.

CoffeeK8 This was my least favorite of the series I think, I just love her books! 2y

Best in the series!
No.3 in #spindlecove series, the story of Thorne and Kate was definitelly the most interesting one.
I loved Thorne's grumpiness so much. He was like a giant sweet tedy bear 😂

I wouldn't say I am ashamed of this, I am pretty open about my love of romance novels, but I might be careful about who I talk to about reading "bodice rippers". There's just something about a roguish duke.

Sometimes a girl just needs a romance and some ice cream. Unplugged for the night and read it all in one go. 💜

EloisaJames I think romance is going to be my go-to place, instead of The NY Times. 3y

This was kind of the perfect follow up to A Scot in the Dark. It's got a similar caring, protective hero who's absurdly convinced he's unworthy of the heroine, and a heroine with a sharp wit and a good heart and a spine of steel. I don't like small town contemporaries but I LOVE small town historicals for some reason, so Spindle Cove is the series for me!
