A LADY BY MIDNIGHT
With this third installment, Dare will have every reader wishing to live in Spindle Cove. This is a story so beautifully written, so lovingly crafted and so touching that, like Judith McNaught, Dare reminds readers of the wondrous feeling of falling in love. Readers will feel complete when they come to the deep-sigh and tears-of-joy ending.
Spindle Cove is where Kate Taylor has found the life she wants and needs, but not love. Gruff Corporal Thorne keeps his distance, cool yet concerned about the lively, loving Kate. When a group of strangers comes to the Cove looking for Kate — claiming she is their long-lost relative and an heiress — he steps in. To protect Kate, Thorne claims to be her fiancé. Kate’s faith in Thorne drives him to distraction, making it difficult for him to resist falling in love. He wants what is best for Kate, and that’s not him. But Kate will not be deterred. Will the truth of Kate’s identity pull them closer together, or drive them apart? (AVON, Sep., 384 pp., $7.99)
