Welcome to Spindle Cove

A Night to SurrenderA Week to be WickedRomance author Tessa Dare is one of the most popular up-and-coming Regency romance writers today. Her feisty, educated heroines and witty banter have quickly made her a fan favorite. Dare says that her new Spindle Cove series was inspired by the militia coming to Meryton in Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. Spindle Cove is a fictional seaside town where rich families send their daughters who don’t fit into society for one reason or another. Life changes for everyone when a militia is raised to defend Spindle Cove.

 

The first novel in the series, A Night to Surrender, is a finalist for the 2012 RITA Award for Regency Historical Romance. Victor Bramwell, the Earl of Rycliff, is injured in battle and sent to Spindle Cove (a.k.a. Spinster Cove) to raise a militia to defend the coast. Bram wants to be anywhere else, preferably in the field of battle, but he will follow his orders here in Spindle Cove.  Susanna Finch wants to keep Spindle Cove a safe haven for intelligent, unusual women, and Bram’s militia may ruin everything. Susanna and Bram are immediately attracted to each other, but battle lines are quickly drawn as each of these two characters has so much to lose.

 

The second Spindle Cove book, A Week to Be Wicked, was recently released. Bluestocking Minerva Highwood has a proposition for Bram’s good-for- nothing cousin Colin Sandhurst, Lord Payne. The two of them will pretend to elope to Scotland, but in reality they will travel to Edinburgh to present Minerva’s fossil findings at a geological conference. When Minerva’s presentation wins the prize, Colin will receive Minerva’s winnings. The two of them end up on a crazy road-trip that changes them both forever. This novel is a hilarious, sexy romp through the countryside that will delight readers.
