Surrender Series: A Gentleman’s Surrender
Written By: Mariel Grey
I typically don’t read historic novels, however, this series caught my attention. This series by Mariel Grey is set in the Georgian era, a time of horse drawn carts, men and women in society and where manners and being proper was expected. In Volume II, Lady Monique and Stanton find their way to each other.
Monique is society. She knows the ins and outs of it. She knows she is to choose a husband before she becomes a spinster, however, she hasn’t quite found the one that meets all her needs. She wants someone who doesn’t just think of her as a wife. She wants someone who understands her, who challenges her, who makes her excited to be around him. But the time is almost here where she will be out of options. And, without her wedding a man with a title and plenty of money, her family will be ruined because her brother was bad with the family finances.
Stanton returns to England after many years in the United States. His main focus is causing shame to the woman who destroyed his family. His father was in love with Lady Monique’s mother but she refused to marry him because he didn’t have a title. So, he married his second choice (Stanton’s mother) and proceeded to make all their lives miserable. Stanton adored his mother and after her death, he went to England to seek revenge. What Stanton didn’t plan on was falling for the beautiful, intriguing, Lady Monique.
Can Stanton put aside his hatred of her mother and let him love Monique? Can Monique put aside her need for a husband with a title and love Stanton? Against all odds, will their relationship falter or stand the test of time?
If you like a great love story, try out A Gentleman’s Surrender by Mariel Grey. It will give you hope for a lifetime love, regardless of the obstacles involved.
Lucy Goodwin knows more about horse breeding than a proper young lady should. Her brother’s thoroughbred business has given her purpose and independence, but when an accident leaves her solely in charge, despair and destruction threaten her every move. Trapped in an impossible position, Lucy must do the right thing and watch their dreams crumble, or save their livelihood at a cost too great to bear.
Lord Philip Lyton, Marquess of Chalifour is a member of the prestigious Jockey Club, dedicated to eliminating cheating in horse racing. Trouble raises its ugly head when his business partner falls foul of an accident and he’s suddenly forced to deal with the man’s sister, who seems alarmingly out of her depth. Chalifour respects Lucy’s steely resolve, but knows that single-mindedness can be the most dangerous trait of all.
She might be beautiful and beguiling, but Lucy Goodwin is keeping secrets and Chalifour is determined to find out what they are.
Can be read as a stand-alone read.
Call her a romantic–or a fool, Lady Monique Cathdon is determined to marry for love. After watching her parents tolerate an arranged betrothal, life seems too short to be wasted on keeping up appearances.
After all, what’s the point of having a heart if one refuses to follow it?
With a smile the devil himself might be proud of, James Stanton is not what her mother would call a matrimonial prospect. Still, there’s something about the young man that sends Lady Monique’s heart thumping around her chest, and silences her voice of reason.
Unfortunately for Lady Monique, the stakes are high, and young ladies of the ton make for very poor gamblers. Especially when James Stanton is on the hunt for revenge, and won’t let an innocent woman–or his own passionate desires–get in the way of righting past wrongs.
Can be read as a stand-alone read.
