Kate Taylor is the music teacher in Spindle Cove. She was raised an orphan in a boarding school and has been alone since she left the school when she came of age. Kate has a port wine birthmark on her temple, and feels ugly and self conscious as a result. Kate harbors a secret fear that she isn't lovable, that no one will ever want her, and the book opens with a confirmation of how cruel life and certain people have been to Kate. Samuel Thorne of the Spindle Cove militia has made an art form of avoiding, rejecting and otherwise escaping any time spent with Kate.

He is keeping a very big secret about Kate that he refuses to reveal, not to Kate nor to the reader, because doing so will likely compromise Kate's standing in the community. He is also trying to withstand the powerful attraction he feels for Kate.

He's twice as rude and boorish out of the effort to hide how much he yearns for her. Thorne is a very smoldering hero. And of course, any man who is in the midst of pretending fiercely that he isn't the least bit interested in a woman must therefore find himself in a sham-engagement to that same woman. It's like romance novel LAW or something, right?

By Tessa Dare

I liked Kate and her determination to be happy, and to make the best of any situation she found herself in, even though she had ample reasons to be miserable. I loved that she wanted to see people accurately, to understand them and their true selves just as she wanted people to look past her birthmark and see Kate. I also liked that her perception about other people meant that, within the responsibilities of her job as a music tutor, Kate would help other women who were feeling afraid or self-conscious using music and performance.

Kate, who is intimate with both of those feelings, has so much empathy and desire to help others feel better, which is remarkable the more the reader learns about Kate's life before she came to Spindle Cove. Thorne is dark and moody and not sure at all what to do with himself where Kate is concerned, save push her away and reject her as much as possible. She is the spot of vibrant disordered chaos in his otherwise very ordered and monochromatic life.

He can't look away and he hates himself for his weakness where she is concerned, because he is convinced that she is better off in every way without him in her life.

The story is a mix of silly and emotional, happy and wrenching that really worked for me. I think that was one of the best parts of Kate's character, really: she fought for happiness and contentment, and held on to it through her own force of will.

She had a lot to be unhappy about, and she refused to be sad. Her resilience isn't blithe ignorance or avoidance of her problems. She is determined to be happy, to be thankful for what she has, with the hope that one day, she will have the family and love she most wants. Two things bothered me, though.

First, when a mysterious set of visitors arrive, it's like a carriage full of sequel-bait shows up. Contrasted with the complexity and depth of Kate, Thorne, and the other residents of Spindle Cove, the new arrivals' role as Possibilities and Plot Conflicts to stand between Kate and Thorne is sometimes clunky, like the difference between a piece of music played after hours and hours of practice, and a new piece played only a few times.

The other problem…well, I've written this sentence several times and I can't think of a way to describe my problem without spoiling things that are integral to the plot.

One of the people in the carriage full of sequel bait has what on the surface appears to be a justifiable reason to dislike Kate and Thorne's engagement, but upon further reflection, his reason is ludicrous compared to the Much Larger Examples of Surprising and Socially Challenging Behavior that are in the carriage with him.

My reaction was, 'Dude, really? That's the best reason you can give as to why they shouldn't marry?

Here are some examples of the passages I highlighted, just because I liked them so much. A year's worth of avoidance and intimidation, all shot to hell in one afternoon, thanks to that wrongheaded, stupid, goddamned glorious kiss.

But when others are listening, I always freeze.

No situation is ever hopeless. So sorry. How thoughtless of me.

This is Spindle Cove. Just remember, everyone in the village is on your side. Every time I start to play, I can see him wince. Just hold your head high, keep a smile on your face, and continue playing.

He was. Her skin prickled whenever he was near, and on the rare occasion that he looked her way, his glare had a way of slicing deep. It was terrible. For him to ignore her pupils was one thing. Wincing was another. But there was no excuse for shuddering.

Shuddering was beyond the pale.
