Teaser Tuesday: Beauty and the Blacksmith

Today I'm sharing a teaser from a brand new release from one of my favorite authors. If you're a fan of historical romance and you haven't given Tessa Dare's Spindle Cove series a try, you're missing out! Spindle Cove is a special little seaside resort town run by women, and the series is full of smart dialogue, laughter, and of course, true love. Beauty and the Blacksmith was released today and it features one of the ladies of the town who I'd been hoping would get a full-length novel of her own, the lovely and fragile Diana Highwood, but I'll settle for a novella! Here's my teaser from page 23:

     "Listen," he said, "I know you've been living in some sort of cage. And tonight, it seems you learned you've been holding the key all along. You deserve a bit of rebellion, but I can't be it. I can't be the man you wake up regretting."
     "Then make the kiss good. So I won't have regrets."

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
