A Night to Surrender by Tessa Dare

Author: Tessa Dare
Original title: A Night to Surrender
Pages: 320
Edition Language: Russian
Series: Spindle Cove #1
Format: e-book
Genres: Romance

      Spindle Cove is the destination of choice for certain types of well-bred young ladies: the painfully shy, young wives disenchanted with matrimony, and young girls too enchanted with the wrong men; it is a haven for those who live there.
      Victor Bramwell, the new Earl of Rycliff, knows he doesn't belong here. So far as he can tell, there's nothing in this place but spinsters... and sheep. But he has no choice, he has orders to gather a militia. It's a simple mission, made complicated by the spirited, exquisite Susanna Finch—a woman who is determined to save her personal utopia from the invasion of Bram's makeshift army.

My thoughts: 
     I picked this book on the recommendation of a book blogger. Actually, it was rated as top romance for some of boooktubers. I, personally, was not expecting much from it, and still I was disappointed.  I didn't like Susanna or Bram. Their tragic past and injuries left me untouched, they just did not feel like real people.
     Overall, the concept of the series is interesting, it’s about a group of misfits ladies. But even though Susanna and her girls are supposed to be free-thinkers, they read like flat cardboard figures. This was extremely dull and boring. Absolutely nothing special. I wonder if this is the author that did not sit with me or the setting.
