From the Inside Flap

"Enough. Enough, by God. I've earned my peace. Let me be."
Annie knelt beside the wounded man, half-straddling his lap.
"Look at me," she insisted. "Do you remember what happened? Do you remember where you are?"
Her fingers gently caressed the chiseled angle of Michael's jaw as she turned his face back toward her. Her gray eyes were wide and lustrous, her mouth open slightly.
He could feel the warmth of her breath on his cheek. He met her worried gaze, and for a single, brief moment all pain disappeared, replaced abruptly by a great hitch in his chest.
Michael was dead certain his heart had stopped.
"Are you an angel?" he whispered.

To me, what sets Lorrie Farrelly’s well-written TERMS OF SURRENDER historical fiction romance apart from many of the other books of that ilk is her fine, literary prose. In fact, in reading her love/sex scenes—and there are quite a few—I kept thinking, ‘Why, even her love making is poetic!’

But in the end, what resonated the most with me was the depth of her characters and her portrayal of how both post Civil War Northerners and Southerners were far from being healed. The very touching opening scene with General Lee surrendering to General Grant at Appomattox as his soldiers choked on their own mixed emotions; the ghosts of family killed forever present in people’s hearts and minds, and how a feisty northern woman (with the help of her little brother) lead a physically and emotionally wounded southern captain down the path of ultimate trust and happiness all made for a very engaging read. Recommended, indeed!

The quality of writing in 'Terms of Surrender' raises it above most romantic fiction.

The setting is after the Civil War with all the aftermath of loss, suffering and confusion.

Captain Michael Cantrell is a young man whose experiences as a Confederate officer have aged him before his time. He has lost everything he once held dear, including his family and his home. He has travelled since the end of the war looking for a new beginning and a purpose in life.

Annie and her young brother Robbie are running their small ranch and raising horses alone in a hostile environment, having lost their last remaining family member to an Indian attack. Their most deadly enemy however is a local Colonel who wants their land at whatever cost.

Mike and Annie are brought together when he risks his life to save her and Robbie. He is gravely wounded in the process and they take him home to try to save him.

The story is full of detail and drama. Several events threaten their safety and future. In addition to external dangers, they face their inner nightmares and the memories that imprison them, especially Michael.
The love that develops between Annie and Michael is tender and touching, a healing force that drives away the pain of the past. Robbie is also a great character, helping to fill the huge void in Michael after the loss of his own young brother Gavin on the battlefield.

The secondary characters add interest, from the dark, cruel Skinner, the scheming Colonel and his daughter through to the `Yankee' soldiers at the fort and Mike's old friend the Major and his wife. There is also humour, such as fun at the expense of Michael's southern accent and ways.

The story is about the healing, redeeming power of love after the chaos and pain of war, not simply in the relationship between Annie and Michael, but also in bridging the divide between north and south.

I read my last western novel as a preteen. In those days, I’d devoured everything that Louis L’Amour published. Since those early years, I’ve moved through several favorite genres to include horror, high intensity political thrillers, science fiction, and more recently alternative history and religious conspiracy action and adventure stories. So, it was with some trepidation that I took on Ms. Farrelly’s “Terms of Surrender”. Listed as historical romance, it still spelled “western” to me and I expected a simple, purist tale of hero defeats bad guy, wins girl, lives happily ever after.

Something of a history buff, I was mostly drawn to this novel by the blurb that began with the American Civil War. From the first chapter, I was captivated by Ms. Farrelly’s wordsmith skills, as well as the verisimilitude and historical accuracy she brought to the narratives and dialogue about the War, the soldiers and their language. As the story moved into a more traditional western/romance storyline – single woman in danger of losing her ranch to the unscrupulous owner of a larger, neighboring ranch – I worried that I’d become bored with a plot that I instantly remembered from the past. I knew immediately where the story was headed and how it would end.

My misgivings were misplaced and I remained captivated by superb characterization and narrative. I was pleasantly surprised to see that sex in this genre, and even most romance novels, has moved forward from a chaste kiss where everything else was relegated to the furthest, darkest corner of off-stage, to several full-blown scenes of real human passion. These scenes were nowhere near pornographic or offensive, and certainly less graphic than what one can find on the movie screens today; yet, the author didn’t beat around the bush, either.

I found this book on my Kindle as I was looking for something new to read and I absolutely LOVED it! I usually do not like romance novels per se, but this one wasn't your typical romance. It was suspenseful, thrilling, and emotional. It also had interesting characters and I enjoyed the historical setting (it takes place in Wyoming after the Civil War has ended). The characters were easy to relate to and I found myself really caring about and rooting for them. My favorite character was Annie, because she was so feisty and I enjoy when the female characters are strong and fight back. Not only was this book thrilling to read, but I found myself laughing out loud because the author puts so much wit into her dialogue.

Normally, I enjoy authors such as Sandra Brown and Linda Howard and Ms. Farrelly is right up there with these two!

I strongly recommend Terms of Surrender if you are looking for something that you can read quickly and will leave you very satisfied!
