Beauty and the Blacksmith by Tessa Dare
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
At last, Diana gets a romance of her own! But with the last man anyone in Spindle Cove expects…
Beautiful and elegant, Miss Diana Highwood is destined to marry a wealthy, well-placed nobleman. At least, that’s what her mother has loudly declared to everyone in Spindle Cove.
But Diana’s not excited by dukes and lords. The only man who makes her heart pound is the village blacksmith, Aaron Dawes. By birth and fortune, they couldn’t be more wrong for each other…but during stolen, steamy moments in his forge, his strong hands feel so right.
Is their love forged strong enough to last, or are they just playing with fire?
I love this series. I need to read them straight through. I like that everyone is not from the same social station, although I doubt how realistic that is for the time period.
