Are you looking for spinsters gone wild? Read A Night To Surrender by Tessa Dare and take a trip to Spindle Cove. Spindle Cove is the hot spot for well-bred women who don’t fit society’s expectations perfectly – the shy ones, the ones who realize marriage isn’t what it’s cracked up to be and those who keep getting their hearts broken by rakes. Susanna has worked long and hard to make Spindle Cove a haven and it’ll be over her dead body that Victor Bramwell, Earl of Rycliff invade her sanctuary with his militia. Heated words and sparks fly between the two as they work towards opposite goals.
A Night To Surrender opens with sheep bombing. Yes, it sounds crazy, but trust me it only gets better. There’s a sharp humor throughout Tessa Dare’s writing that kept me entertained. I couldn’t help but fall in love with the fiercely independent spinsters and the misguided militia.
Susanna is my favorite type of heroine – the strong, confident kind. There is no simpering on Susanna’s end. Yet, she’s not anti-man either. She is ready to open her heart up to love. She is loyal to her friends and hometown. She’s exceedingly headstrong, also. I really could not help but enjoy having her at the helm of this story.
A Night To Surrender is quite steamy. Dare certainly takes the love scenes up a notch, so if you are uncomfortable with explicit scenes, this may not be the book for you. The relationship between Victor and Susanna moves rather quickly. The progression of the relationship is rather believable, though. Both characters are very strong willed, and it is as though like attracts like, and I couldn’t help but love how they played off of each other’s strengths. If you go into romance looking for some heat, absolutely I wholeheartedly recommend Tessa Dare’s A Night To Surrender.
