A Night to Surrender by Tessa Dare - Review
A Night To Surrender by Tessa Dare
Rating: 4 Stars
Description: Susanna is none to thrilled when wounded soldier, Victor Bramwell, and several of his men come marching into the sanctuary for ladies known as Spindle Cove. She is even less thrilled when her father announces that Bramwell is the new Earl of Rycliff and will be staying in town to assemble a militia with all the men in town. For his part Bramwell just wants to get back to the battlefield and hopes that winning over Susanna's father will be a stepping stone to that. However, he can't help but be attracted to the smart and spirited Susanna. Things get interesting when they end up having to work together for the good of the town and possibly themselves.
My Impression: This was a new author for me and I was pretty impressed with Dare's characters. Susanna is smart and able to speak her mind without being over-prickly or sensitive. She has her issues but hasn't let them take over her life. Bramwell impressed me a little less. He was obsessed with getting back on the battlefield to the point of letting it overtake almost everything else. It kind of became all there was of his character. He wanted to get back to active fighting and oh yeah he thought Susanna was attracted. I loved how the story worked out and really believe these two could get their HEA. I'm also excited about how Spindle Cove is set up. I'm looking forward to spending more time in the town and with the interesting characters that Dare has come up with. Also, I LOVED beyond reason that Bramwell ended up with a lamb called Dinner.
