This novella was originally published in November 2011. It has been reissued with a new cover.

Some wallflowers bloom at night…

Violet is a quiet girl. She speaks six languages, but seldom raises her voice.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. 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.

There was very little character development so I ended the book detached from the story not caring that they lived happily ever after. I enjoy Dares other books, I just don't recommend this one....you're not missing anything.

Once Upon A Winter's Eve is a fantastic historical romance by Tessa Dare. This is a fairly quick read, perfect for those with limited reading time. Ms. Dare has given readers a well-written book with a fabulous cast of characters. Violet has enjoyed her time at Spindle Cove and is not looking forward to going home to her parents. When a man barges into the ball and drops at Violet's feet he seems familiar. Christian was sent to France to intercept packets and pass them along to the home office. Christian and Violet's story is full of suspense, action and sizzle. I enjoyed reading Once Upon A Winter's Eve and look forward to reading more from Tessa Dare in the future. Once Upon A Winter's Eve is book 1.5 of the Spindle Cove Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
