Tessa Dare is one of the authors I discovered when I came back to reading Historical’s. Her books are witty and don’t have your typical heroines. The Spindle Cove series is full of not your average heroines and their adventures falling in love. This novella has a wrong side of the tracks love story. Diana Highwood is beautiful and expected to make a splendid match, the problem is that she has fallen in love with Aaron Dawes the blacksmith. Aaron Dawes is the strong and sturdy blacksmith of spindle cove, helping the town and secretly in love with Diana. The book has some steamy and heart fluttering moments. I think you can read this as a standalone if you are just wanting to try the series out. But it is one of my favorites in the series. Diana is definitely the Belle of the Smithy!
Take a trip to Spindle Cove in New York Times bestselling author Tessa Dare’s gorgeous and sexy Regency romance.
Beautiful and elegant, Miss Diana Highwood is destined to marry a wealthy, well-placed nobleman. At least that’s what her mother has loudly declared to everyone in Spindle Cove.

Is their love forged strong enough to last, or are they just playing with fire?
