~ Under the Covers
Tessa Dare blows me away every time. She’s one of my favorite historical romance authors and, as I’ve said before, one of those few talented authors that can rock a novella. BEAUTY AND THE BLACKSMITH is the second Spindle Cove novella I’ve read and it’s for sure another winner. A winner from page 1 until I finished devouring it.
There’s just something sexy about a man who works with his hands and Aaron Dawes, Spindle Cove’s blacksmith, is sexy at his best. All bulging muscles and rugged with a few secrets. Miss Diana Highwood is the moth attracted to that light. She’s a society lady, elegant, and according to her mother, she should be looking to marry a wealthy man with a title. But she can’t keep herself from lusting after the blacksmith to the point she breaks her own jewelry just to take it to him to fix….repeatedly.
As usual I love her characters and I love Spindle Cove, full of the gossiping old women and there’s always some intrigue going on which in the end can provide for some comic relief as well.
Their attraction had obviously been building for a while and we are thrown in right about when their sparks couldn’t be contained anymore. This novella was as sweet and funny as it was sexy! Classic Dare.
Anything Tessa Dare writes goes immediately on my Keeper shelf. She completely transports me to her worlds, makes me live her stories and leaves me sighing when I turn that last page.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
