Quote of the day: “I’d have been dead a long time ago if not for my friends, one of whom had just jumped off the cliff after me.
I’d have been a lot more appreciative if he hadn’t pushed me first." Cassandra Palmer ― Hunt the Moon by Karen Chance

2nd Annual Historical Romance Event - Guest Review & Giveaway

Hi guys! 
Today I have a guest blogger name Ning from Reading by Kindle Fire here with us. She's posted a review of A Night To Remember by Tessa Dare and even added a giveaway to the event!

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?

Review: This being my first book by Tessa Dare, I was not disappointed at all! Spindle Cove is a place of rest and refuge to women who don’t fit into the norm of society. Having made it her home, Susanna Finch makes it her mission in life to help other young ladies like her, ladies who are too intelligent and too independent as viewed by society. 

I thought Susanna is a very well rounded character. She’s feisty, smart, independent, and very caring. She really cares about Spindle Cove and the ladies who come there to rest for the summer, but I also loved that sense of vulnerability in her, that she’s still afraid of something. Her motivation is very believable. However, I don’t feel like I connected with Bram as well as I did with Susanna, probably because I don’t completely understand his honor belief, but I really liked how he changed throughout the book. At first, he was very eager to head back into war, but as he slowly fell in love with Susanna, he fell in love with Spindle Cove too and finally understood that there is more than one way to fight the war.
