Welcome to Spindle Cove, where the ladies
with 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 for
certain 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 to
gather a militia. It's a simple mission,
made complicated by the spirited, exquisite
Susanna Finch--a woman who is determined to
save her personal utopia from the invasion of
Bram's makeshift army.
Susanna has no use for aggravating men;
Bram has sworn off interfering women. The scene
is set for an epic battle...but who can be named
the winner when both have so much to lose?
