MY REVIEW of
Once Upon a Winter’s Eve
A Spindle Cove Novella
by Tessa Dare
$0.99 in eBook Format at:
(Originally published November 2011)
Some wallflowers bloom at night…
Violet is a quiet girl. She speaks six languages, but seldom raises her voice. The gentlemen aren’t beating down her door.
Until the night of the Spindle Cove Christmas ball, when a mysterious stranger crashes into the ballroom and collapses at Violet’s feet. He’s wet, chilled, bleeding, and speaking in an unfamiliar tongue.
Only Violet understands him. And she knows he’s not what he seems.
She has one night to draw forth the secrets of this dangerously handsome rogue. Is he a smuggler? A fugitive? An enemy spy? She needs answers by sunrise, but her captive would rather seduce than confess. To learn his secrets, Violet must reveal hers—and open herself to adventure, passion, and the unthinkable… Love.
I found myself reading this book for a second time.
I had previously read it when I bought it originally in March of 2012, but with the new cover art and a slight change in the title tagline I didn’t recall having done so. It was equally good a second time around.
The characters are well thought out and developed. The storyline has an interesting twist.
I find myself enthralled with each Tessa Dare book that I read, both the novellas and the full length novels.
I gave this novella 4 of 5 stars for characterization and storyline. The characters are interesting and not without their flaws.
I would give it a heat rating of 3of 5 flames.
We know these two have one night of passion before our hero disappeared from our heroine’s life. Now suddenly he is back pretending to be someone else.
I recommend reading this short book to fans of regency romance.

Portrait of Passion
Idyllwild Book 1
by Lynne Barron
Digital List Price: $2.99
FREE For a Limited Time at Amazon
What’s a gentleman to do when a mysterious lady with a secret past and a reputation frayed around the edges suddenly appears in London in pursuit of his naive young cousin, setting the gossips’ tongues wagging, stirring his family into pandemonium, and driving him mad with her irreverent ways?
If the gentleman in question is Simon Carlisle, Viscount Easton, the answer is quite simple. Seduce the beguiling lady. But Miss Beatrice Morgan isn’t your average tarnished lady. She’s lived a slapdash life wandering the globe like a gypsy, painting fantastical portraits of duchesses and landscapes featuring a crumbling old fountain, all the while harboring a secret desire to return to the only home she’s ever known.
Will Beatrice sacrifice her honor, her virtue, her very heart to reclaim Idyllwild?
This book was previously published by the same title. While the author has made minor revisions and given it a beautiful new cover and fresh edits, the story remains a spicy, sensual tale filled with all sorts of dallying, frolicking and even a hint of debauchery. And very little of the fun takes place behind closed doors.
A Highland Sorcery Book 1
by Clover Autrey
Digital List Price: $0.99
Free For a Limited Time at:
Charity Greves has the gift of healing. So when a naked bleeding Highlander materializes out of the air into her kitchen, she does what any rational free-thinking herbalist under the same circumstances would do–she heals him. She didn’t expect to be drawn back to the 13th Century where a dangerous whacked-out witch holds the handsome Highlander captive.
Nor is she prepared to be drawn so strongly to him that she’ll do whatever it takes to save him.
Imprisoned by the witch, Toren Limont the High Sorcerer and Protector of the Fae’s magic, uses the last of his magical reserves to go forward in time and find a healer the witch doesn’t have any influence over. He merely seeks the small respite a healing can give him in order to continue to withstand the witch’s tortures long enough for his clan and siblings to flee.
Until Charity falls with him through time as either his salvation or his entire clan’s downfall.
