Until one night during the Spindle Cove Christmas ball when a dashing stranger does just that. He's dirty, soaked, bleeding and speaking in a language only Violet understands. A sensible girl would stay well clear. But Violet's not as delicate as she looks and has just one night to find out his secrets that might lead her to the love, and adventure, of a lifetime.
This novella is a short story that is part of Dare's Spindle Cove series. This story follows A Night to Surrender and comes before A Week to Be Wicked . I've not read either and found that this story was an intriguing insight into the series and didn't need to be read in order to be understood.
The characters in this story were great. Violet was a quiet girl but didn't fall into the cliche of being shy with it. She was feisty, honest and bold - I really liked her. Equally, the hero was everything I like in a leading man - brooding, mysterious and willing to sacrifice anything for the woman he loves. The pair had great chemistry and I really liked them as a couple.
This is an implausible, fun and feisty romp with characters I really enjoyed and an almost farcical, fast-paced storyline that was a delight from start to finish. It will only take you a little while to read, but the price is right and the story is a great way to spend an hour or so. If you're a fan of Tessa Dare or just looking for a light and frothy tale to take your mind off things for a while then I would recommend this to you. 5 stars.
The story was a little confusing at first because I was totally convinced that Violet wouldnt have recognised her former lover after a year, even if he was now sporting a twice-broken nose and had bulked up. But I trust Ms Dare to deliver a good plot and so suspended disbelief and kept reading. I wasnt disappointed. This isnt Ms Dare's best book by far, but it's still worthy of 4 stars for achieving the near impossible and making me feel human again.
