Welcome to Spindle Cove, where the ladieswith delicate constitutions come for the sea air, and men in their prime are . . . nowhere to be found.
Or are they?
Spindle Cove is the destination of choice forcertain types of well-bred young ladies: the painfully shy, young wives disenchanted with matrimony, and young girls too enchanted with the wrong men; it is a haven for those who live there.
Victor Bramwell, the new Earl of Rycliff, knows he doesn't belong here. So far as he can tell, there's nothing in this place but spinsters . . .and sheep. But he has no choice, he has orders togather a militia. It's a simple mission, made complicated by the spirited, exquisiteSusanna Finch--a woman who is determined tosave her personal utopia from the invasion ofBram's makeshift army.
Susanna has no use for aggravating men;Bram has sworn off interfering women. The sceneis set for an epic battle...but who can be namedthe winner when both have so much to lose?
