I only came to Jayne Ann Krentz late in life but just cannot get enough of her great stories. One of her early works but still a very good read.

HASH(0xa4202f54) out of 5 stars Old Book Re-published! 23 May 2014
By Sunnidale - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Surrender is an old book, originally published in 1990, reissued in paperback in 2007 and now again by Random House. This business of repackaging an old book as "new" is becoming a frequent practice with books by popular authors. Unfortunately, there is nothing in the 'new' book's information to alert you to this fact. It really bothers me that you have to search for this information. I know others have written about this practice in their reviews which is why I always skim through the reviews before buying a book that I have suspicions about.

As others indicated, this story has no paranormal elements. It is a straightforward romance, with similar elements to a Stephanie Laurens type romance.

HASH(0xa4202fa8) out of 5 stars You'll definitely become a fan! 15 Mar. 2009
By GinRobi - Published on
Format: Hardcover
SEDUCTION: Justin needs to marry again; he needs an heir for Ravenwood. Sophy, now twenty-three, has been in love with Justin, from afar, since she was eighteen. But Sophy is no fool - she knows what marriage entitles, and she refuses to lose her independence. But if she was to be married to Justin, with his name attached to hers, she just may be able to flush out the man who seduced, impregnated her sister, then left her, causing her sister to take her own life. For Sophy, that's the same as murder, and she's determined to find out who it is. Barganing with Justin, she agrees to marry him. Only, things don't go as planned for either of them. Justin does not want a repeat of his first marriage - his first wife had married him for convenience and did everything to make his life miserable, including infidelity. He doesn't want another wild woman on his hands and does everything he can to tame Sophy. What he ends up realizing - Sophy is nowhere like Elizabeth, and comes close to losing her to the man who'd murdered Elizabeth. Sophy believes she made a mistake when she admitted to Justin that she loved him. She vows to be the dutiful wife Justin wants, even if her love isn't reciprocated. But can Justin now convince Sophy that he loves her the way she is?

**A beautiful story. I loved the history and the intrigue. Justin, domineering alpha male, wants everything out of Sophy while giving nothing in return. Sophy wants equal ground with her husband, and fights hard to get it, much to Justin's dismay. I loved watching them come together, to love each other and accept each other for who they truly are. While Justin's dominance bugged me a little, I could understand it. For in that era, that's the way it was. LOL, I can say I'm glad I don't live in those times - I'd resent being ordered about.

SURRENDER: Heiress Victoria Huntington refuses to be married. After her father died while she was still a child, her mother had remarried to a man who only wanted her money, one who became violent when he was drunk. Her mother's death while out riding had been deemed an accident, but Vicky was convinced that her stepfather murdererd her and did the unthinkable to get a confession: pretending to be a ghost, she flitted about the estate in her mother's gown, driving her stepfather to come after her. While he did so, with a knife, and a confession, another accident occured, and he died after falling down the stairs while chasing her. She's kept this her secret and vowed never to be married. Meanwhile, having been hurt and left for dead on battle grounds, Lucas Colebrook has recently inherited Stonevale and the title of Earl. The only problem? His uncle drove the estate into the ground. Lucas desperately needs to marry and heiress, and sets his sights on Victoria. Vicky loves her life the way it is; she loves to take risks unbecoming a lady, and Lucas appoints himself the one to help her. But Vicky has fallen in love with him, and after being caught after their one night of passion, a hasty marriage ensues, and Vicky finds out the truth: Lucas wants her money. Now Lucas is trying to convince her that she can no longer take the risks she was taking. Vicky is furious, for all the reasons she'd refused to get married are being thrown at her. And now, her past is coming back to haunt her; for little things are starting to pop up, convincing her that her stepfather is back from the dead. Both want to find out who it is that is trying to drive Vicky mad. And while Vicky is still in love with Lucas, she refuses to acknowledge it. And now Lucas has to convince her that he's just as in love with her.

**An excellent story! I liked the history and intrigue in this one more than the first. And while I felt the `distaste' between two of the charactes, I never concluded who it was that was after Vicky until it happened. I really felt for Vicky, for after she and Lucas married, everything she didn't want was being thrown at her, and I could feel her anger and frustration. I loved how Lucas indulged her when he could, doing what was necessary to protect her, but I did find him a little unfair at times. Even if that was how it was back then, I still felt that Lucas could have gone about it in a different way. I loved watching them together. And the synopsis was right: once you read Seduction and Surrender, you will definitely become a fan of Amanda Quick's historical romances.

HASH(0xa520e09c) out of 5 stars Seduction: pretty good / Surrender: not so good 30 May 2015
By amtmcm - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Seduction: Sophy is darling and makes this book enjoyable. I love how the ladies of society try to immitate her artless fashion disarray, with untied bows, slipping shawls and loose ribbons. Ravenwood is autocratic, annoying and a bully when it comes to getting his way, but Sophy does a good job of managing him. She's no door mat, thank goodness. Overall I liked this book but didn't love it and wouldn't read it again.

Surrender: I can see why this book only has an average rating of 3.5 stars on Amazon. It is totally lacking romance. Thankfully I checked this out from the library, so I didn't pay for it. And I'm also glad this wasn't the first book I read by Amanda Quick or would be the last. This book isn't terrible, I just didn't enjoy reading it. The premise of an heiress falling for a fortune hunter is standard fare, but the heroine vacillates from intelligent to hare-brained, and the hero turns out to be a scold. He's not a bully since he's kind of a push-over for her, but he's constantly lecturing. Even the ending, which is supposed to be the HEA, is really an argument about why each of them were justified in their bad behavior. Not very pleasant reading. I'm giving three stars because it is well written and the plot is pretty good, but the characters ruined this one for me. Attraction plus adventures does not equal romance.

I did not find the characters as likable as many of Amanda Quick's other characters, but these two books were worth reading non-the-less.
