3.0 out of 5 stars Okay, but not a must read, April 24, 2007
This review is from: Surrender to a Scoundrel (Avon Romantic Treasure) (Mass Market Paperback)
Surrender to a Scoundrel is the first book I've read by Julianne MacLean, and while I liked it, I didn't love it. The story was interesting enough: a womanizing duke's son sets out to win the attention of a much-favored, and rumored to be "unflirtable" widow. The two meet up again after ten years apart and each finds that the other is much changed. The heroine, Evelyn, is no longer the shy, contemptuous girl the hero met in her youth, though she does put on a haughty air in his presence. The hero, Martin, is still the same rake he's always been, only Evelyn finds that he's still irresistable to her despite this. Over the course of the novel, the two fall in love (naturally), only to be kept apart by the hero's refusal to let go of his past. Eventually he gets over it and they live happily ever after. Not the most original plot ever, but I've read worse. Still, there was nothing spectacular about this story that would make me recommend it to a friend or want to read it again. Nothing sticks out in my mind and, doubtless, within a week I'll have forgotten about it entirely. That being said, I enjoyed it while I was reading it. I'd recommend Surrender to a Scoundrel if you're in the mood for romance and can't find anything better, but it's most certainly not a must read.
