(Spindle Cove #3)
by Tessa Dare
Avon Books -- August 28, 2012
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 fiance. 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 is 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.
WHY I'M FEATURING IT: I have absolutely adored the first two books in this historical romance series along with most of the author's other books. I was intrigued by both of these characters in the earlier books and can't wait to see what Dare comes up with next. If you are interested, here are the links to my reviews of the other Spindle Cove books, A Night To Surrender and A Week To Be Wicked.
