Surrender the Dawn (Surrender to Destiny #3)Surrender the Dawn by M.L. Tyndall

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


It says a lot that I'm giving this book 4 stars since it hit one of my pet peeves at the very beginning and several times throughout the story.  I detest - not too strong a word here - the cliche, "as well as any man" when referring to a woman doing something.  Detest.  I almost closed the cover when I hit the first one.  But I hung on and am very glad I did.  A delightful tail of a lady and a rogue who both find truth and love among the twists and turns of war time.  Set during the War of 1812, we even get a peek at such notable figures from history as Sir Francis Scott Key and Major Armistead.  Gotta love a dose of good history in any historical!

Sometimes when we read on despite an irritation, we get lucky. Sometimes not. Glad this one turned out to be a winner for you. :)
