“SURRENDER THE NIGHT is yet again another great book by MaryLu Tyndall!
Rose McGuire has already survived so much in her young life. The lost of her parents and a vicious assault has left her too fearful to leave her family farm. When British soldiers storm her farmland and a lascivious lieutenant see her as easy prey, she fears her nightmare is about to repeat itself. When 2nd lieutenant, Alexander Reed steps in and protects her, her nightmare is just beginning. One soldier is dead and the other is wounded. She knows she should turn Alex over to the authorities–he is the enemy after all– but he just gambled with his life in order to save her. Her only choice is to nurse his wound and get him healthy enough to leave. But when her heart becomes entwined with his, she finds herself at a crossroads.
Alexander Reed finds himself in a precarious situation. He has killed his commanding officer and finds himself severely wounded in enemy territory. But that is the least of his troubles when he questions his feelings for Rose McGuire and his allegiance to his mother country. The more time he spends with Miss McGuire the more his attraction grows. He sympathizes with the plight of the Americans, but are his feelings strong enough that he would turn trader?
I thoroughly enjoyed SURRENDER THE NIGHT. There were times when the waning of Rose’s feelings and fears seemed redundant, but that did not minimize my enjoyment. I love MaryLu’s writing. Her characters are always rich and charismatic, her scenery distinct and evocative. Mr. Snyder was the perfect villain, sickening me whenever he made an appearance. I love to escape into the world of MaryLu’s. SURRENDER THE NIGHT is no exception.
