A temporary engagement, a lifetime in the making . . .

After years of fending for herself, Kate Taylor found friendship and acceptance in Spindle Coveβ€”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 fiancΓ©. 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.

JUST A NOTE: Read It File It is for books that I have read that I need to keep track of. The reviews will be super short (think tweet longer length) but will serve the purpose of getting the books into UBB for tracking purposes πŸ™‚

First Thought when Finished: A Lady by Midnight by Tessa Dare had all the feels and smiles!

Overall Thoughts: Tessa did it again! I loved Kate and Thorne’s love story. I knew these two were destined to be a great match when Kate was a bit more sure of herself on the inside and Thorne appeared very sure of himself on the outside. Thorne stepping up to “pretend” to be Kate’s fiance while they figured out if her new found family was legit was fun, interesting, and intriguing. I loved Thorne’s back story. I dare you not to swoon after him. I loved Kate’s determination to make him see his worth. I loved the ladies of Spindle Cove making sure that this turned out exactly as it should. All around another great entry in the series.

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated By Carolyn Morris / Length: 10 hrs and 51 mins

Carolyn did an outstanding job with Kate and Thorne! These are really good on audio and well worth the time to listen too1

Final Thoughts: Tessa really does knock it out of the park with Kate and Thorne (his first name is Samuel but his last name fits him so well)!

  1. I have just hopped over to Audible and put the first one of the series into my wishlist. I tried one Tessa Dare once, but didn’t really read it and may not have been in the right mood for it, still have it – Goddess of the Hunt- must go back and try it again.

    • I don’t know that I have read that one but this series is delightful. She was new to me when I picked up this series and I have gobbled them up. Now just waiting (though the new one releases next month)

  2. Can I please have another set of ears?..LOL I really enjoy Tessa Dare’s books, but I haven’t been listening to a lot historicals lately. I plan to change that this month with 2 anticipated releases from Amanda Ashley and Elizabeth Hoyt, now it looks like I need to add this one too πŸ™‚
    Thanks Felicia.

    • I know right! I need an extra set of ears and some uninterrupted listening time. Even not turning on my TV for a week didn’t give me enough time to listen to everything I wanted too.
