Waiting on Wednesday is a a weekly blog hop hosted by Breaking the Spine where we all mention one upcoming book release we are waiting for.
Once Upon a Winter's Eve. I just recently finished the first book in this series, A Night to Surrender, and was quite happy with it as it was my first Tessa Dare novel and then when I saw she was self publishing a novella just in time for the holidays, well, thats just a win for me :) And another win for me? Its up for preorder on Amazon for just 99 cents! My favorite price, well besides free :) I have seen a couple early reviews and it looks to be a quick, delightful read.
Here is the goodreads.com summary:
A Spindle Cove Novella
Some wallflowers bloom at night...
Violet Winterbottom is a quiet girl. She speaks six languages, but seldom raises her voice. She endured bitter heartbreak in perfect silence. 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. His coarse attire and near-criminal good looks would put any sensible young lady on her guard. 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.
