Surrender the Heart


Worth reading 😎

An enjoyable romance with misunderstandings, denials and scheming happening to create plenty of interest.

Surrender the Heart was an enjoyable historical romance set in Paris, between an unlikely couple. They both had completely different reasons for entering into an agreement. Ariane so she could have freedom from being pursued by other suitors when she is in no way looking for a husband, and Chris because he enjoys a wager and thinks it might be fun to show Ariane some pleasure.

These two really needed to have better conversations between each other, but since they were both determined not to admit to feeling things neither wanted nor wanted to admit to, you can understand why there was so much miscommunication.

I really liked Chris as our hero; I thought he was lovely and genuine despite his roguish ways. I felt for him when he had dealings with his father's estranged wife and his half brother. No child should be blamed for the sins of their parents.

It took me a while to completely warm to Ariane; at times she came across as spoilt and selfish, at others, you could completely understand her dilemma and her naivety and how they brought about some of her behaviours. She did grow on me though and I hoped these two would get their act together and work things out.

There were several very unlikeable characters who added to the story and one very unlikeable scene, but they all added to the story and made you feel for our two main characters.

An enjoyable read. 3.5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐

I love discovering and promoting authors who wouldn't get the opportunities that big name published authors get. I read a big range of genres and am open to trying new ones.
