- An Englishman and an American woman fall in love during the 1812 war? by Rachel on 7/23/2012
Surrender the Night is the second book in the surrender to Density series.
Rose has suffered abuse by people--both close, and strangers--and has hidden herself from society. Rose socializes with her animals on her farm and avoids town, except on rare occasions. Alexander has become disgusted by his country's treatment of the Americans. After protecting Rose and being shot he is forced to take refuge on her farm, putting him and her family in danger.
This book takes place all on land, during the War of 1812. Somewhat of a change from MaryLu Tyndall's other books. I love this book. It is possibly my favorite out of all her books--so far. Alex is a complete gentleman and loves Rose. This book has tender romance, not inappropriate, uncalled-for scenes, but still has passion. It is fast-paced and even gave me goosebumps at the end. It really made me appreciate my country more and despair at how different America is now. Surrender the Night is a must read.
- Another terrific Tyndall novel! by SD on 6/22/2012
I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to MaryLu Tyndall and her publisher for sending me a copy of "Surrender the Night" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a copy available to me as a member of MaryLu's Motley Crew.
I have never been in the position to have my home raided during a time of war by enemy soldiers. However, the gifted writing of MaryLu Tyndall takes me to that terrifying place where British invaders challenge American freedom and engage in violent oppression during the War of 1812. “Surrender the Night” is the second novel in the Surrender to Destiny series, and paints a vivid picture of war-torn America fighting to confirm her independence from England.
The stage is set to the extent that the reader can smell the smoke of burning buildings. Baltimore in 1812 was a precarious place to be, and Rose McGuire is absolutely in a precarious place. Her parents are dead because of the British. She is fighting off the advances of an undesirable suitor. The fate of her family rests in her hands if her Uncle should be killed during the British raids on her land. When Alex Reed, the Second Lieutenant aboard a British ship, saves Rose from being ravished by his superior, the story twists even further. Injured in the altercation, Alex is at Rose’s mercy – and under her care.
You may remember Alex from the first novel in the series, “Surrender the Heart”. His gallant character and torn loyalties were evident in that wonderful book, and it makes his character pop off the page in this beautifully crafted romance. I eagerly await book three.
