Series: Spindle Cove #1
Also in this series: A Week to Be Wicked, A Lady by Midnight, Any Duchess Will Do
Genres: Historical, Romance
Welcome to Spindle Cove, where the ladies with 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 for certain 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 to gather a militia. It’s a simple mission, made complicated by the spirited, exquisite Susanna Finch—a woman who is determined to save her personal utopia from the invasion of Bram’s makeshift army.
Susanna has no use for aggravating men; Bram has sworn off interfering women. The scene is set for an epic battle… but who can be named the winner when both have so much to lose?
Tessa Dare can do no wrong.
Thoughts on A Night to Surrender
Tessa Dare can do no wrong. Because any book that makes me request the remaining three books in the series after finishing is a DAMN GOOD BOOK. A Night to Surrender even sets the stage for two other couples, which is part of the reason for the request binge…
The other part, of course, is that Tessa Dare writes some amazing books. This one starts with sheep bombing. SHEEP BOMBING. No lie. I adore these characters. They’re so real and flawed and lovable. (For the most part anyway. Lord Payne, I’m looking at you.)
I also really love the spin that Susanna had on the whole “You’re mine” line from Bram. (Which is always a favorite, you know.) She says that she owns her body, heart, and soul, and that she willingly shares them with Bram. And that’s a far more powerful statement to make than admitting to be someone’s.
Also, guys, the sex. WHERE IT HAPPENS. o.O O.O O.o AWESOME.
The more Tessa Dare I read, the more I love her. And even though I’ve just requested the remaining three books in this series, I don’t want it to end, since it’ll be the last of her books I have left to read. *flaily flails*
