A Lady by Midnight (Spindle Cove #3) by Tessa Dare

A temporary engagement, a lifetime in the making . . .

After years of fending for herself, Kate Taylor found friendship and acceptance in Spindle Cove—but she never stopped yearning for love. The very last place she'd look for it is in the arms of Corporal Thorne. The militia commander is as stone cold as he is brutally handsome. But when mysterious strangers come searching for Kate, Thorne steps forward as her fiancĂ©. He claims to have only Kate's safety in mind. So why is there smoldering passion in his kiss?

Long ago, Samuel Thorne devoted his life to guarding Kate's happiness. He wants what's best for her, and he knows it's not marriage to a man like him. To outlast their temporary engagement, he must keep his hands off her tempting body and lock her warm smiles out of his withered heart. It's the toughest battle of this hardened warrior's life . . . and the first he seems destined to lose.

4 out of 5 stars

A Lady by Midnight was an absolute delight! It was sweet and entertaining with just the right amount of heat. The story was wonderful and I liked the characters. It was fun and lively and moved at a good pace. I had a great time reading it!

I loved Kate and Samuel and learning about them and their past connection. I like how it built to those details, when it was revealed, it was exciting. I loved their chemistry, how she pushed his buttons, and he fought his feelings. I enjoyed watching them grow and change and learn to trust one another. Kate and Samuel were sweet together, there were a lot of entertaining scenes between them. There was also a fake engagement and an adorable dog in the mix which was a nice touch.

This was light and fun and just what I needed. It wasn’t super in-depth but had just enough details to keep me hooked. I thought this was a charming read and was thrilled when they got to their HEA. This is a wonderful addition to the Spindle Coves series and I can't wait for the next one.
