Review

Tyndall writes with such vivid detail readers will feel a part of the action and romance as they experience a historical event they won't soon forget. The message that God uses the unlikeliest people to carry out His plans will resonate.
(Chandra McNeil RT Book Reviews 2011-03-01)

I loved this book! I could not put it down. The author does a wonderful job of taking history and writing a novel that draws you in. Again I loved how she wrote about God in this book. It was so real so powerful. I also enjoyed seeing Noah and Marianne again and how they played a small role in this story as well. Again I was drawn into what the people of that time must have been feeling as their capital city was burned.

SURRENDER NIGHT by MaryLu Tyndall is an amazing inspirational Christian romance set in 1814 Baltimore,Maryland. It is the second in the "Surrender to Destiny", and can be read as a stand alone,although some of the characters return in this story...This is an inspiring story of love, family forgiveness,saving a country,finding your faith.coming to terms with your past and moving toward a future with hope,faith,peace and most of all love,a home and family.This story is for all historical romance readers and is  full of adventure and danger with romance and love. Once again this author has made a story to treasure.It is a MUST READ and a keeper.

(April Renn My Book Addiction 2011-03-08)

This Tyndall novel surprised me, because it was the first of MaryLu’s books not set at sea.  While British Navel Lieutenant Alexander Reed (who we met in Surrender the Heart) played a pivotal role, the story remained firmly anchored on land.
 
The themes of seeing people for who they are, rather than for the labels that we hang on them, and of overcoming fear by trust in God despite difficult life circumstances found purchase in my life.  And who doesn’t love a romance that develops against all odds?

(Rachelle Sperling Sojourner's Journey 2011-03-07)

A description-heavy story that authentically takes you back to the second war of independence. Characters are drawn with depth and sensitivity. A story of forgiveness, trust, hope and love.
(Carolyn Scheidies Author's Choice Reviews 2011-03-28)

I was so engrossed in this story, I was unable to put it down. This was one of the sweetest love stories I have read (and I read many!) I am looking forward to reading the next in this series, but these books are also fine as a stand alone.
(DeniseSchirmuhly Goodreads 2011-03-28)

Another great book by M.L.
 
 I love how the story plays out and when the book ended I was sad I wanted more of this story. It was good seeing characters from the first book in your series and seeing where they are now and what has happened to them. Some of the secondary characters in this book really add to the story.  I cant wait for the last book in the series.  
(Jenny Blake Come Meet AusJenny 2011-04-01)

This book is a suspense thriller as both Alex and Rose’s lives are in serious danger from the beginning.  Don’t start this book late at night because it will be very difficult to put it down or stop thinking about it.  I recommend this book highly and am greatly looking forward to the next book in the series.
(Victor Gentile Vic's Media Room 2011-04-06)

A description-heavy story that authentically takes you back to the second war of independence. Characters are drawn with depth and sensitivity. A story of forgiveness, trust, hope and love.

By land or by sea, you'd be hard pressed to find a better romantic adventure than what the pen of MaryLu Tyndall can provide! "Surrender the Night" (book 2 in her "Surrender to Destiny Series") takes us from a family farm in Baltimore to the White House in D.C. It is a story of two people separated by war, nationality and prejudice. An unlikely pair to be sure, yet they must work together and in so doing find a love they never imagined and troubles that are destined to test it at every turn.

Rose McGuire is a humble, compassionate, beauty who works hard on her family farm, where she spends most of her time. Well acquainted with loss and pain, this warm, loving girl carries around the cold, heavy chains of fear that keep her a prisoner of her memories - memories that have since destroyed her trust in people, specifically men. But when a man, a British naval officer to be exact, comes to her rescue and gets terribly wounded in the process she is left with no choice but to nurse him back to health. She never imagined a trust so completely destroyed could ever be restored again, especially in the presence of the enemy - both British AND a man.

Alexander Reed is a British naval officer who finds himself fighting a battle on land instead of the familiar waves. Chivalrous, tender-hearted, and a gentleman through and through, there is such depth and heart residing in that tall, muscular frame of his. We first met him in Surrender the Heart but I don't think I realized then just how handsome and physically powerful he was- probably because Luke Heaton had me quite distracted ;) We caught glimpses of his heart and his desire to do what's right in the first book, but he grew so much in and throughout this story that I just fell in love with him!

Rose McGuire life has not been an easy one. At a young age she was orphaned and robbed of most of her inheritance by her caretaker. Five years ago, she was sent to live with her aunt and uncle's farm in Baltimore, Maryland.

At the farm Rose found happiness that she never knew existed. There she is able to work on the farm and take care of the animals. Rose is unaware of the devastating war of 1812 taking place outside her safe home. Her peaceful existence is disrupted one night when she is attacked by a British soldier. Rose is saved when British 2nd Lieutenant Alexander Reed steps in and saves her from being attacked by his superior officer; in saving Rose he is gravely wounded.

Even though Alex is her enemy, she knows that she cannot turn her back on his injuries. She hides him away and tends to his wounds. As she takes care of the injured man Rose gets the opportunity to get to know Alex. She finds out that he is a caring confident man, one who she finds herself quickly falling in love with.

As each day passes, it grows more difficult for Rose to keep Alex's hiding place a secret. She fears that the town's people will discover him and think she is a traitor. Will she be able to protect Alex long enough to allow him time to recover? Once he does will their love stand a chance with the two of them being on the opposite side of the war?

Surrender the Night is a beautiful written historical romance. With all MaryLu Tyndall's books you are guaranteed to be provided one of the best reading experiences in your life. Her talented pen knows how to write passages that take you deeper into the story. You will find that you will be experience the pain, sorrow, and joy of each one of her characters. Authors such as MaryLu Tyndall are a rare treasure to behold.

Book Two, Surrender to Destiny Series

Baltimore, Maryland (1814)

With the British militia determined to claim American soil during the War of 1812, Rose McGuire has ample reason to despise the enemy. They killed her father, and thereby were also responsible for the horrors she endured after his death.

Living now with her aunt and uncle on a farm outside Baltimore, Rose is afraid of everything. The events of her life have defined who she is--an insecure girl who rarely leaves her home and is more comfortable with her horses, pigs and chickens than with people.

During a terrifying attack by a British sailor, Rose is rescued by British Naval Lieutenant Alex Reed. When the handsome enemy sailor is shot during the fight to keep her safe, Rose is honor bound to care for him until he can care for himself. Not even her aunt and uncle can know she's hiding a member of the British militia on their property. If he is discovered, Rose and her entire family will be tried for treason.

Hailing from wealth and pedigree, Alex finds conditions on the farm only tolerable at best. But as he comes to know Rose and her family and friends, he discovers some surprising truths about the things that truly matter in life, and the things that aren't so important, after all.

Despite Rose's bitterness against the British and Alex's contempt for Americans, the two find themselves drawn to one another, though any kind of relationship between them is utterly impossible.

Or is it?

Set amidst historically recorded events, Surrender the Night is a gripping, enthralling romance that keeps the heart pounding, the mind spinning, and all five senses sharply at attention.
