Book Marks: Beauty and the Blacksmith

Beauty and the BlacksmithMy first visit to Spindle Cove was via the book A Week to be Wicked. It was so good, I read it in just a few days when I should’ve been working.

For me, that’s the height of compliments!

I’ve visited Spindle Cove a few more times since that first time, most recently in the novella, Beauty and the Blacksmith. It was so fun to see two people I’d read about in earlier books finally get together, despite the obstacles.

I’m not a great fan of characters who have sex early in their relationship and/or when they aren’t sure they’re going to get married and live happily ever after. And it’s just my opinion about when is too soon. After all, I’d decided to marry John less than two months after I met him, so I can’t dismiss someone else falling in love quickly. (Of course, it took me two and a half years to get him to the altar! But that’s another story.) 🙂

But that was the only thing I didn’t love about this story. I loved how the romance came together. I loved seeing the other characters again in the background. I loved that it was a novella so I could hurry and ingest the full story without losing time I should be working. 🙂

The other thing to love is that several of the Spindle Cove ebooks are a dollar or less right now since Tessa Dare’s new Spindle Cove book just came out, Any Duchess Will Do. In addition to the above, you can also read the novels A Night to Surrender, A Lady by Midnight, and the novella The Scandalous, Dissolute, No-Good Mr Wright.

If you like romances set in historical England, romances that make you laugh and cry and sigh with pleasure, Tessa Dare’s Spindle Cove series is a must-read!
