A temporary engagement, a lifetime in the making . . .
After years of fending for herself, Kate Taylor found friendship and acceptance in Spindle Cove—but she never stopped yearning for love. The very last place she'd look for it is in the arms of Corporal Thorne. The militia commander is as stone cold as he is brutally handsome. But when mysterious strangers come searching for Kate, Thorne steps forward as her fiancé. He claims to have only Kate's safety in mind. So why is there smoldering passion in his kiss?
Long ago, Samuel Thorne devoted his life to guarding Kate's happiness. He wants what's best for her, and he knows it's not marriage to a man like him. To outlast their temporary engagement, he must keep his hands off her tempting body and lock her warm smiles out of his withered heart. It's the toughest battle of this hardened warrior's life . . . and the first he seems destined to lose.

Tessa Dare has done it again, wonderful story. The spindle cove series continues to shine.
I loved this book. Tessa Dare is a very very clever writer, managing to deftly infuse her regency romance with witty repartee, sophisticated (hot) passion, and a dash of intrigue. The story line had its requisite twists and turns and was not predictable from the outset like so many others of this genre. I particularly enjoyed the fullness, depth and believability of her characters. And the dry humor really made me smile. Well done Ms. Dare!
This is the best 99 cents I have ever spent.
I would have enjoyed the book for a normal price, but the fact it was 99 cents was amazing. The romance was so well written and the characters make you truly care for them.
