Overview

Some wallflowers bloom at night...

A Spindle Cove Novella

Violet Winterbottom is a quiet girl. She speaks six languages, but seldom raises her voice. She endured bitter heartbreak in perfect silence. The gentlemen aren't beating down her door.

Until the night of the Spindle Cove Christmas ball, when a mysterious stranger crashes into the ballroom and collapses at Violet's feet. His coarse attire and near-criminal good looks would put any sensible young lady on her guard. He's wet, chilled, bleeding, and speaking in an unfamiliar tongue.

Only Violet understands him. And she knows he's not what he seems.

She has one night to draw forth the secrets of this dangerously handsome rogue. Is he a smuggler? A fugitive? An enemy spy? She needs answers by sunrise, but her captive would rather seduce than confess. To learn his secrets, Violet must reveal hers—and open herself to adventure, passion, and the unthinkable... Love.

Warning: The heroine packs a pistol, the hero curses in multiple languages, and together they steam up a cold winter’s night.

After reading the reviews, I thought it would be short and so-so. What a pleasant surprise - it was over 200 pages and well written. This "novella" is better than some of the 6.99 books. Thumbs up!

This is my first book by this author. The storyline is a good one and i loved the main characters. The romance was good. The length of the book was disapporting at 213 pages. I also like epilogue in my books unless their will be a sequel. As an avid reader of romance novel, this one is good. I recommend it.

I fell in love with this book from the start, and I could not put it down. The characters were both strong,intelligent, courageous, well developed, and the hero was so romantic without even trying. This book has made it to my top 5 books, and I have reread it twice already. As other posters have mentioned before, for anyone who has stood in the corner even once in their life, THIS BOOK IS A MUST READ!

Very very quick read but a good one none the less. I wish there had been a little more to it honestly, the author had a great story line and i feel she could have done alot more with it. So good book, but i personally feel that it didnt live up to its full potential.

My only criticism is that it was over to quickly. Great characters, great love scenes! This is the first of her books that I’ve read. As soon as I’m done here I’m going to order another!

I love this author. She's an autobuy for me. You could choose any of her works and be happy.

This was a very quick read. The characters were fairly well formed so you get some idea of who they are. I really enjoyed the story and wish it had been longer.

This started off kinda slow, but as the story progressed, it was great to see how the characters opened up and how the plot came together. It wasn't an excellent read, but it was a good distraction and an easy read.

Tessa Dare did a fantastic job of keeping me guessing through this story. I am an avid reader and can usually figure out where a story is going...not this time! Bravo Tessa!!

Christian and Violet's story was so sweet and touching. Even though it was just over 200 pages and had a nice flow from beginning to end, I would like to have a follow up story to pick up where this one ended. It's hard not to get hooked on these characters.

The problem I had was the book didn't really get good until about page 200 then ended shortly there after. It had some good parts but too much I just didn't care for.

It is a very short leave you hanging and wanting for more book. Would have been really good if the story had continued.
