Beauty and the Blacksmith: A Spindle Cove Novella

Beauty and the Blacksmith - Tessa Dare I've gone seriously off this kind of frothy, wallpaper historical, but since this was short I gave it a whirl. Though still not really my cuppa, and certainly not very plausible, I did enjoy the relative forthrightness and maturity of the characters around their relationship. They've been interested in each other from afar for a long time, despite serious class barriers, and there's very little game playing.
