A Night to Surrender by Tessa Dare (Audio Edition)

Narrated by Carolyn Morris

Spindle Cove, Book 1

♥ ♥ ♥  I had higher hopes for this book as I have really enjoyed other stories from this author. There were some funny parts, some tender moments and some good banter. However, Bram and Susanna were both stubborn characters and I found it felt like they were at constant odds, and just when they seemed like they might make a go of it.. Some dire drama was put into the story.. I kinda wish they had just let them come to terms without that.  

The narrator really did help make the story come alive with her many voices and enthusiasm. I have heard there are some really good books in this series, so I am sure I will pick up the next one soon enough!

Here's the blurb:

Welcome to Spindle Cove, where the ladies with 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 for certain 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 doesn’t belong here. So far as he can tell, there’s nothing in this place but spinsters . . . and sheep. But he has no choice, he has orders to gather a militia. It’s a simple mission, made complicated by the spirited, exquisite Susanna Finch—a woman who is determined to save her personal utopia from the invasion of Bram’s makeshift army.

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