There is no place in England like Spindle Cove, a coastal respite for young ladies longing to get away from society’s strictures and heal their minds, bodies and souls. No one knows this better than Susanna Finch, who “founded” the retreat on her father’s property. Few men are allowed in the village, so the women can be themselves. When rumors of a possible attack by Napoleon’s forces surface, Victor Bramwell, Earl of Rycliff, is asked to mount a militia in Spindler Cove. Susanna is proud of her haven for women and will not allow Victor to ruin it. Victor needs this assignment, and soon they both realize they need each other. Can they put aside stubborn pride and past mistrusts to have a forever kind of love? (AVON, Sep., 380 pp., $7.99)
