"[A] sensual journey of two intelligent and complex people. The dialogue will have you laughing, squirming and keeping score of direct hits. ...a fantastic holiday read."

"Romain's second tale is another holiday romance that demonstrates her ability to craft well-written stories full of lovely prose and endearing characters who readers can take to their hearts.

This was a good book and I'll be watching out for this author in the future
Alexander Edgeware, Lord Xavier doesn't like to turn down a bet, so when his cousin Lord Longwood wagers that he cannot get the prim and proper Lady Louisa Oliver to attend his famously naughty Christmas part and stay for the whole two weeks, Xavier makes it his next goal to prove that he can. As a man notorious for his wicked ways, Xavier uses his charm to get a rise out of Lady Louisa. So the question stands, does the bookish Lady Louisa stand a chance against the wicked lord?
SEASON FOR SURRENDER was a sweet and uplifting read. I enjoyed the characters very much. Lady Louisa was particularly endearing because of her love for books and a secret thrill for experiencing the unspeakable. She's a curious one who seemed to bring a bit of innocence and light into Lord Xavier's world. They got along wonderfully and I loved Romain's ability to infuse the book with sweetness and teasing sexiness.
As my first book from Theresa Romain, I found that I enjoyed her writing style very much. She has a great voice, but sometimes I felt that some scenes went on for a little too long. But I do think that the characters made up for that.
I was a little skeptical because I don't usually enjoy books where a bet is the key to which the hero and heroine meet, but Romain put her own unique twist to this trope that made it enjoyable.
The holiday theme is prominent and definitely gives this book a more romantic feel. After reading this, I think I'm likely to seek what's next for Theresa Romain.

Lord Xavier - known to almost no one as Alex- thrived to live a life of debauchery, betting and drinking. Or at least, that's the way he appeared to people, not that he wanted to do those things, but he was convinced he'd be worthless without his infamous reputation. His life takes a very strange turn at one of his usually less respectable parties. It all starts when his cousin bets him to convince a proper young lady to attend said party and keep her in it for two weeks. Louisa on the other hand is sick of living a sheltered and unsocial life, especially since she was living with her half-sister and her husband, who just happened to be Lousia's ex-fiancé. So, when she receives an invitation one of Lord Xavier's parties and her aunt agrees to accompany her, she rushes there with hopes she would manage to do something that is decidedly not her.
I laughed a lot due to the humor in this book, Alex was somewhat hilarious. Also, the way the relationship between Alex and Louisa grew was vastly entertaining.They were both great together, and the way they dealt with one another was nice. I like how they were different around one another more than they were around other people. Louisa, I had not expected her character to be so good. I am used to the heroine being whiney, annoying, and making false assumptions, as well as sometimes being weak and believing what she's told straight off.Read more ›
