Publisher Comments:

Welcome to Spindle Cove, where the ladieswith delicate constitutions come for the sea air,and men in their prime are . . . nowhere to be found.

Or are they?

Spindle Cove is the destination of choice forcertain types of well-bred young ladies: the painfully shy, young wives disenchanted with matrimony,and young girls too enchanted with the wrong men; it is a haven for those who live there.

Victor Bramwell, the new Earl of Rycliff,knows he doesnt belong here. So far as he can tell, theres nothing in this place but spinsters . . .and sheep. But he has no choice, he has orders togather a militia. Its a simple mission,made complicated by the spirited, exquisiteSusanna Finch—a woman who is determined tosave her personal utopia from the invasion ofBrams makeshift army.

Susanna has no use for aggravating men;Bram has sworn off interfering women. The sceneis set for an epic battle…but who can be namedthe winner when both have so much to lose?

Review:

"Dare (Three Nights with a Scoundrel) pairs up an educated spinster and a wounded hero in this delightful Regency, the first in the Spindle Cove series. Lt. Col. Victor 'Bram' Bramwell is traveling with fellow soldiers when a flock of sheep stalls them. They set explosives to scatter the sheep, but Susanna Finch, a woman living nearby, gets too close. Fortunately, Bram knocks her out of harm's way just in time. The instant attraction between Susanna and Bram is complicated by Bram's having just inherited a title, a crumbling castle, and the right to summon a militia. The last will be nearly impossible in the peaceful woman-dominated community of Spindle Cove, where few are thrilled by the military newcomers. Enticing romantic encounters are matched by witty conversations that slowly and seamlessly reveal deep truths about Dare's endearing one-of-a-kind characters. (Sept.)"

Synopsis:

“An engaging love story with strong, believable characters. I cant wait to read the sequels!”
—Mary Balogh

“Prepare to fall in love.”
—Julia Quinn

Presenting the winner of the Avon FanLit contest, the immensely talented Tessa Dare! Tessas first Avon historical romance, A Night to Surrender, is a love story to remember—kicking off her wonderfully inventive Spindle Cove series, set in Englands Regency Era in a small seaside resort town that caters specifically to ladies “of good breeding and delicate constitution.” Fans of Lisa Kleypas, Christina Dodd, and Liz Carlyle will delight in the passionate chaos that ensues when a dashing British officer, under orders, “invades” this community of strong-willed “spinsters,” only to discover hes met his match in Miss Susannah Finch!

A good story -- nothing new or groundbreaking here -- but much improved by the author's wonderful dialogue. Dare's wry sense of humor is so appealling that her books have become "auto buys" for me. I found it to be a very nice read over a rainy and cool weekend.
