Aww this one was sweet and fun! Isolde inherits a castle from her godfather. The only problem that someone lives in that castle, a grumpy handsome blind Duke. A Duke who says it is his castle.
Isolde has nothing, a few pennies at most. She needs this castle. Her father left her with nothing. Her fairytale writing famous father (men!!! think ahead please.)
I liked the fairytale aspect of it all. People loved those tales, and are cosplaying as characters. Which was very cool for this age.
The Duke has issues of his own. His is blind. He has not learned to deal with it infront of other people He still dwells in his own sorrow.
And in comes Isolde like a quiet whirlwind. He is grumpy, she is just trying to get by.
I really liked these two together. Very sweet.
Great narration. Always superb, and with a good range of voices
As the daughter of a famed author, Isolde Ophelia Goodnight grew up on tales of brave knights and fair maidens. She never doubted romance would be in her future, too. The storybooks offered endless possibilities.
And as she grew older, Izzy crossed them off. One by one by one.
Ugly duckling turned swan?
Abducted by handsome highwayman?
Rescued from drudgery by charming prince?
No, no, and... Heh.
Now Izzy's given up yearning for romance. She’ll settle for a roof over her head. What fairy tales are left over for an impoverished twenty-six year-old woman who’s never even been kissed?

Great narration as always
After years of fending for herself, Kate Taylor found friendship and acceptance in Spindle Cove—but she never stopped yearning for love. The very last place she'd look for it is in the arms of Corporal Thorne. The militia commander is as stone cold as he is brutally handsome.

Long ago, Samuel Thorne devoted his life to guarding Kate's happiness. He wants what's best for her, and he knows it's not marriage to a man like him. To outlast their temporary engagement, he must keep his hands off her tempting body and lock her warm smiles out of his withered heart.
