stars for me! One of my favorite reads for the year. I was worried when the reviews started coming in that perhaps this book would not live up to my anticipation of it, like so many do, but OMG! It was everything I hoped it would be and more. There were some things that I know were not accurate as far as the time and place, issues with inheritances and the likes that had me scratching my head thinking "no, that isn't right.. how can that be??" Actually, I think it was more of Lord Drewe trying to do the right thing, but I truly don't care, the characters were so wonderful that I had no problem overlooking them.
Tessa Dare might not keep her historical facts right, but she sure does know how to build up the sexual tension between characters. Corporal Thorne, Samuel, Oh, he is truly swoon worthy ~sigh~ When he wound up in Spindle Cove, a year prior to the setting of this book, he walked into the saloon/tea room, heard someone singing like an angel and right there, his long hardened heart started to crack.
This book actually had me tearing up in a few spots, something that rarely happens to me. I even cried at the epilogue, well the part about B C ~sigh~
I am not going to get into the story because I just want to spew out spoilers, all my favorite parts. But for now, I am just going to savor this story in my head for a bit.
