Another charming holiday read that was also a lot of fun. Set during the Napoleonic wars, the story takes place in the space of one evening into the next dawn and is a delightful romantic and sexy tale. Novella in length, you don't get much time to get to know the characters and grow to like th...

Ridiculous.This book's premise was ridiculous too, but in this case it was so fun. It didn't try to do too much, it made you love and admire both characters. And holy sweet-talker. Could that be cheesy? If it is I don't care! It was was swoony and romantic. And omg the opening combined with the "I'v...

The first 40 pages or so were MEH. Then, it gets better. I liked Violet, even more when she is aiming her gun at the guy. One of the few times I read a book where the couple is established. I did not like Christian so much, though. Sure he loved her very much, but he did not deserve her. He had been...

Brace yourselves: this is a rave review for the Spindle Cove series by Tessa Dare. I actually read them out of order because I got A Week to Be Wicked when it was on sale. And from there, I knew I'd have to read all the rest. It's not that they don't stand alone, but there are enough hints at the...

This was my favorite novella! The fact that so much love could be expressed in such a short amount of time. It's incredible! Violet was absolutely stunning, and I admired her skills with a gun. Christian was a man who was trying to right a wrong for her, and he was dreamy:) This short story had a go...

This book gets five stars based completely on how much fun it was to read. What a great little story! I often feel like I don't really get to know the characters in novellas well enough to really care about them, but that was not the case with this one. I really liked Violet and Christian. I under...

I'm running out of adjectives to express my adoration for Tessa Dare's books. I loved this novella and could not put it down. Violet, a corner-lurking wallflower, is secretly nursing a broken heart at Spindle Cove following The Disappointment. A handsome stranger collapses at her feet at the Chris...
