A snowstorm hath no fury like a spinster scorned
Miss Elinora Browning grew up yearning for the handsome, intelligent lord-next-door…but he left England without a word of farewell. One night, inspired by a bit too much sherry, Nora poured out her heartbreak on paper. Lord Dashwood Missed Out was a love letter to every young lady who’d been overlooked by gentlemen—and an instant bestseller. Now she’s on her way to speak in Spindle Cove when snowy weather delays her coach. She’s forced to wait out the storm with the worst possible companion: Lord Dashwood himself.
And he finally seems to have noticed her.
George Travers, Lord Dashwood, has traveled the globe as a cartographer. He returned to England with the goal of marrying and creating an heir—only to find his reputation shredded by an audacious, vexingly attractive bluestocking and her poison pen. Lord Dashwood Missed Out, his arse. Since Nora Browning seems to believe he overlooked the passion of a lifetime, Dash challenges her to prove it.
She has one night.

Start with A Week to Be Wicked, it's amazing! Miss Elinora "Nora" Browning grew up next to and was taught lessons along with George Travers, ...

Just finished this Spindle Cove novella by Tessa Dare and I can't stop smiling. It was funny, sweet, and romantic. Nora pens a pamphlet on empowerment after her childhood (secret) sweetheart leaves to explore the world and become a cartographer. In the years since he's been gone, she becomes a suc...
