A Night to Surrender (Spindle Cove #1) by Tessa Dare

Welcome to Spindle Cove...

Spindle Cove is the destination of choice for certain types of well-bred young ladies: the bookish, the shy, the heartbroken or misunderstood. It's a haven for young women who don't quite fit in.

Victor Bramwell, the new Earl of Rycliff, knows he doesn't belong here. So far as he can tell, there's nothing in this village but spinsters and sheep. But 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 ladies' refuge from the invasion of Bram's makeshift army.

The last thing either of them expects is a powerful attraction. Much less explosive passion. The village of Spindle Cove is set for an epic battle of the sexes...but will love conquer all?

5 out of 5 stars

This was instantly entertaining! I loved it! It was an excellent introduction to the Spindle Cove series. It was filled with attitude, arguing, and heat, stubbornness, and drama, friendship, and love. I couldn't read it fast enough!

I adored Susannah and loved learning all about her, her strength and how much she cares for others. I liked her fiery attitude and how smart and resilient she was. I loved the mission she seemed to be on for all the women in Spindle Cove. I adored Bram and his gruffness. He was a man with a plan and it was fun watching it all go off course. He was sweet underneath everything, but also very determined and stubborn. I loved watching his guard come down and his vulnerable moments happen. Susannah and Bram were fantastic together. I loved the bickering between them, that antagonism was awesome. I also loved the flirting and building heat... which was super-hot!

A Night to Surrender was filled with everything I love in a story. There were so many funny scenes and situations happening that had me laughing. I loved the different POVs and thought processes. The internal dialogue was great. I thought the story had a good pace and an awesome build. I loved all the other characters introduced. I really liked all the women that were in Spindle Cove and am excited to learn more about them. The women have such great personalities and I'm really looking forward to what's to come, especially after meeting some of the men.

I can't wait to see who is next. Seriously, so many wonderful characters to look forward too and Susannah and Bram kicked it off with a bang, literally! I'm officially in love with Spindle Cove!
