Surrender the Night by MaryLu Tyndall
Book 2 in the Surrender to Destiny Series

Back Cover:

When British soldiers invade Baltimore amid the war of 1812, rose McGuire, alone on her family farm, is prey for a brutal lieutenant. In the midst of the attack, she's saved by British 2nd lieutenant Alexander Reed. Will she now have to heal, as well as hide, this wounded enemy soldier?

Alex hadn't meant to kill his superior or get shot in the process. Now badly wounded, he's at the mercy of this tomboy who obviously hates him. Can he trust her, or will she turn him over to the Americans?

Rose is having trouble keeping Alex hidden from her family, the townspeople, and the man intent on courting her. Will the discovery of Alex's presence force her to accept an abhorrent proposal?

As their love blooms, trouble looms, for the British are on the move again. This time, their target is the city of Washington. Will these young lovers at heart find themselves enemies at war?


A great book by MaryLu, but I woudln't expect anything else from this great author! Even though there wasn't any pirates (well maybe a privateer) this was another Swashbuckling Romance! And it happened to be set in one of my favorite wars of America...not to mention my favorite First Lady was mentioned! Dolly Madison!!! Rose meets the famous lady and helps her out in Washington....but that's getting ahead of the story :)

As the back cover states, Rose was being attacked by Garrick...Lieutenant Reed steps in and accidentally kills his superiour, and getting shot in the leg as well. Causing him to have to stay at Rose's farm until he can walk again...and return to the British Navy.

But before he could return, he got himself stuck as their hired man...so now he does all this manual labor, that he is not accustomed to. Causing Rose and him to have to spend more time together, endagering their hearts...and their families.

This is a great book, and it can stand alone...doesn't have to be read witht he previous book in the series. I recommend you go out and get this book!

To the FTC and whomever else it may concern, I received this book from MaryLu Tyndall. In return, I have promised to review the book but have been given the freedom by MaryLu to give my honest opinions whether they be positive or negative.
