Descripción

Victoria Huntington thought herself quite adept at fending off fortune hunters…until she came under siege from Lucas Colebrook, the darkly disturbing new Earl of Stonevale. For the earl would use her every weakness to woo her and ultimately wed her. And soon Victoria would find herself ensconced in a crumbling mansion deep in the English country side, where the real reason for her hasty marriage becomes all too apparent – and where the ghosts of her dark-stained past are waiting to rise in a terrifying plot that will threaten her life, her honor, and the only man she could ever love…

    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.Rating: 4 Stars

    A fun quick romantic read with plenty of adventure and crazy twists and turns. Amanda Quick always delivers.
  • (5/5)
    I love lots of Amanda Quick's books, but this is my favorite. The hero is a fortune-hunter, yet she manages to make him sympathetic. Since I'm writing my own fortune-hunter hero right now, I understand just how difficult that is. But she pulls it off. Lucas is just scrumptious.

    She's Victoria Huntington and has decided that she doesn't want marriage, she wants excitement and has determined that she will get it. She is dealing with her nightmares about her past and really doesn't know if anyone will understand.He's Lucas Colebrook and he's got to find a wealthy wife to save his estates. This need for a wealthy wife puts Victoria on the defensive. But still they're finding interest blossoming between them.It's not a bad read, but pretty predictable.
