Review: Surrender by Pamela Clare

Surrender - Pamela Clare


This was my first Pamela Clare book and I really enjoyed it. I can't wait to read more from this series.

It all begins with the exiled Highlander Iain MacKinnon, being trapped into joining the British Army--along with his brothers-- where he will lead a group of men at war. Meanwhile, Lady Annie Burness Campbell is all alone. She has lost her father and now she has lost her mother. But she saw what happened to her. This knowledge is the cause for her being forced into the life of a simple maid in America, leaving her luxurious life behind. When she escapes from her abusive masters, she bumps into Iain. From then on, their strong chemistry between them becomes to difficult to avoid.

When I started the book, I was intrigued. I wanted to keep reading to see what would happen because both characters go through some tough situations. Once these two characters met, I really liked the sexual tension between them.

She could not imagine her life without him. This past month had been the happiest she'd ever known. Never has she felt more alive. At times it was hard to believe such joy could be real. Each morning she awoke in his arms, and each night she fell asleep sated from his loving.

Annie was quite brave, especially after everything she went through. She was smart, kind, and loving. I really liked her. She was a bit naïve, but that was understandable to that period of time. As the story progressed the more courageous she became. There was even a part where she stood up for herself from the person she feared the most. So, I was so happy about that.

Never had he been so intimate with a woman, her every thought and feeling as important to him as his own. Never had his heart and body and soul belonged so completely to anyone. Never has his dreams or days ahead mattered more to him. Never had he felt so mortal.

Iain...what's not to love about him? He was that sexy, protective highlander that you can't resist. He was strong, heroic, alpha, and good-hearted. I loved him! He made me swoon with how he treated Annie. He was just so freaking perfect and so freaking hot! And his brothers were equally as hot and intriguing. You will love him.

I liked the slow build up between Annie and Iain. It was done really well. And the steam of this book is really great. It wasn't too much or too little. The sex scenes were perfect. I enjoyed the fact that there was emotion to it. That is what melted my heart.

The writing of this book was done so in a very well manner. I absolutely liked Iain and Annie. I loved the quirky and boisterous secondary secondary characters and even came to like Lord William Wentworth--who was very questionable throughout the book. Was he a villain? Was he a good guy? He was probably a bit of both but I still enjoyed the role he played in the story. There were parts of action from the war, but I will admit, I wasn't really into reading the descriptions about the war. I was more into the story between Iain and Annie. I really liked the ending, especially the Epilogue. I was so happy for them that I couldn't help but smile. A wonderful read, for sure. It had everything a historical romance should have. I definitely recommend those historical romance lovers to give this one a try.
