This is definitely a re-read. I just never got around to posting a review for this book eons ago. Not much to say except I loved the heroine in this one (Victoria) and hero (Lucas). The two of them being thrown together due to Lucas needing an heiress and Victoria wanting adventure sets them on a fun collision course. Of course based on the time period there are a few times you want Lucas to get kicked hard someplace. He talks about his husbandly rights a freaking lot. And of course back then the husbands decided the wives allowance (if they decided to give them one). The love scenes are typical Quick, usually hero and heroine have their first time prior to marriage, they are fighting, another time in bed, and then there's a mystery to solve. This one has a mystery about who is sending Victoria threatening notes alluding to something dark in her past. ( )

Surrender
3.5 Stars

After witnessing the disastrous relationships of her female relatives, Victoria Huntington has sworn of marriage and become adept at avoiding even the most ardent of fortune hunters. That is until Lucas Colebrook, a former officer and newly minted Earl, sets his sights on the young heiress and woos her with risky midnight rendezvous' and passionate embraces. But can he convince her that he wants her for more than her inheritance?

While Surrender includes all of the necessary components for a successful Amanda Quick novel, something is missing.

Victoria is intelligent, independent and witty, but she is also immature, self-absorbed and petulant. Lucas is strong, courageous and sexy, but his initial desire to marry for money and his self-righteous and high-handed tactics are less than appealing.

Despite these character flaws, Victoria and Lucas have excellent chemistry and their battle of wills is engaging. Moreover, Quick thankfully avoids the silly misunderstanding trope and has Victoria confront Lucas about his intentions before any secrets become too angsty.

The minor mystery plot has potential, but could have been merged better with the overall storyline. As it is, the villain is predictable and the motive not all that logical.

In sum, an entertaining enough read but Quick has written better.

At four and twenty, Victoria Huntington is on her way to being a spinster. Wary of fortune hunters and men as dastardly as her stepfather, she has spurned any potential suitors. That is, until Lucas Colebrook comes along.

Victoria chafes under the restrictions imposed upon the proper young women of the ton. She wants adventure and excitement and Lucas offers just that. Victoria and Lucas strike a bargain where he agrees to show her the sights of London that no gently bred maid should see...brothels, gaming hells, gentlemen's clubs...Ultimately, their agreement leads to them being found in a compromising position and they must wed.

V románu vypráví autorka příběh Victorie Huntingdonové, bohaté čtyřiadvacetileté dědičky. Dívka je obklopena mnoha nápadníky, kterým však především jde o její bohatství. Victorie si to dobře uvědomuje, ale přes to propadne kouzlu Lucase Colebrooka, tajemného hraběte ze Stonevale. Mezi jejími nudnými nápadníky vyniká nabídkou nočních dobrodružství a romantických projížděk za svitu měsíce. Victorie mu nedokáže odolat. Hrabě využije její slabosti a svého kouzla k tomu, aby ji vlákal do manželství. Když se hrdinka octne na jeho zanedbaném, polorozpadlém panství daleko na anglickém venkově, vyjde najevo pravý důvod jeho dvoření. V sázce je nakonec Victoriin život i čest jediného muže, který ji skutečně miluje.

A fun quick romantic read with plenty of adventure and crazy twists and turns. Amanda Quick always delivers. ( )
