New York Times and USA Today Bestseller

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 fiancé. 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.


Tessa Dare is theNew York Timesbestselling, award-winning author of more than a dozen historical romances. A librarian by training and a book-lover at heart, Tessa makes her home in Southern California, where she shares a cozy, cluttered bungalow with her husband, their two children, and a pair of cosmic kittens.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad I would have enjoyed it more if the hero was not so overdramatic. He kept pushing Kate away and it just got on my nerves.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from overly complex quite a tangled plot - were all those 'extras' there to introduce potential upcoming books? also - more of author's penchant for intimacy in potentially risky settings; not my cuppa. even so, likable characters, hero and heroine, which is why i keep reading spindle cove books. this one's not the best of them, but is still pleasant and enjoyable.
