One of the greatest strengths of Tessa Dare’s Spindle Cove series has been how well she has cast her characters and how much detail she has provided about the world they inhabit. Returning to these books is like revisiting old friends and hearing about their latest news and gossip.The secondary characters grow a little bit in each book, with hints of their potential for a full storyline, so it wasn’t too surprising to see who the main characters of A Lady by Midnight would be. What was surprising was how much their lives would change during the course of the story and how well they suited one another.

Kate Taylor and Corporal Thorne would, on the surface, seem to be a very mismatched couple. She is a very open, gracious, and caring individual who has become one of the pillars of the Spindle Cove community. Thorne is the quiet and brooding leader of the local militia; a man dedicated to the defense of the town but has done little to actively participate in town life. There is a pull between the two characters that Kate has difficulty defining. She is attracted to him, but thinks that he doesn’t like her, and she has no idea why that would be. What Kate doesn’t know is that she had crossed paths with Thorne before he was ever stationed at Spindle Cove; a fact that Thorne has spent the last year hiding from her by keeping as far away from her as possible.
