This is an utterly charming historical romance. Season for Surrender gathers a fascinating cast of characters and sets them free. Alex and Louisa are so incredibly well matched. They trade snide remarks and sharp observations with stunning accuracy, yet neither can deny the attraction. The premise of a wager is nicely played out and the promise of passion is never far from anyone's mind. This is a kind of quirky romance. It's a sensual journey of two intelligent and complex people. The dialogue will have you laughing, squirming and keeping score of direct hits. Lockwood, Jane and Lady Irving are memorable secondary characters who add just the right amount of spice and color to the story. It's a fantastic holiday read; and I've already purchased the first 'Season" book. I can't wait to start it.
Part of his yearly wager with his cousin Lord Xavier invites bookworm Louisa Oliver to his legendary Holiday party. But rather than the shy, inhibited miss that Alex expected and was determined to shelter from the more base elements of the party, Louisa was a surprise at every turn. She came to the gathering for her own reasons, and Alexander Edgware, Lord Xavier was about to learn some very timely lessons.
This is not to be missed!
Alexander Edgware, Lord Xavier, has quite a reputation - for daring, wagering, and wickedness in all its delightful forms. But the wager before him is hardly his preferred sport: Xavier must persuade a proper young lady to attend his famously naughty Christmas house party - and stay the full, ruinous two weeks. Worse, the lady is Louisa Oliver, a doe-eyed bookworm Xavier finds quite charming. Yet to refuse the challenge is impossible - he will simply have to appoint himself Miss Oliver's protector. Louisa knows her chance for a husband has passed. But she has no desire to retire into spinsterhood without enjoying a few grand adventures first. When Lord Xavier's invitation arrives, Louisa is more intrigued than insulted. And once inside the rogues' gallery, she just may have a thing or two to teach her gentlemen friends about daring.
