Owen seems a bit of a cad in the opening chapter as he coolly contemplates what innocent young lady's reputation he can compromise in order to gain access to her dowry and save his estate, but we soon learn that he is not as bad as he initially seems. While Owen was off fighting a war, his family's estate and his beloved childhood home fell into a state of disrepair after his father's death. Now he must find a way to save the place that holds so many wonderful memories for him and supports the local economy with its farming activities. When his best friend Leo suggests Owen attend his house party with a specific young lady in mind to help Owen's cause, he reluctantly agrees.
Milly has had the good fortune to travel to France to be educated where she had a glimpse of a different kind of life- one where women are treated as chattel to be bargained off to the highest bidder in return for a man's financial gain and where their intelligence is actually valued rather than squashed. She has built up a prickly demeanor with the ability to cut down any man's interest as her suit of armor to avoid the fate afforded to so many ladies her age, and she counts herself as fortunate that her father will not force her to marry. Her younger sister just came out into society and is much more innocent, so when Milly sees fortune hunter Owen Hadley eyeing Rowena like a piece of meat that is the answer to his prayers she knows she has to step in to run interference.
Fate steps in to lead Owen into the wrong room at night, and suddenly Milly finds herself in the middle of her worst nightmare as she is forced to marry him. They may have mixed like oil and water when they encountered each other in the past, but they are about to find out they have more in common than they ever realized. Owen faces an uphill battle, but he is determined to have an amicable marriage at the least while hoping for something much more when he is afforded little glimpses of the real Milly who lives behind the armor. She is fiery, intelligent and passionate despite her fears about him breaking her heart. Milly is startled to find that Owen's estate is the reason behind his desperate quest for funds, and the more she gets to know him the more he continues to surprise her while breaking down her preconceived notions by not conforming to the societal norms of men of the peerage.
A Gentleman Never Surrenders was a really enjoyable read filled with heart, heat, love and humor. I really enjoyed seeing Milly let go of her anger and hurt to free the wild streak she has inside with Owen's help, and Owen's redemption from his actions in the first book of the series was well done. This second book of the series was much better than the first which was slightly underwhelming in my opinion, and AGNS provides a few hours of fun, entertaining distraction from the real world.
He has his eyes on Rowena, Millie's younger sister. But Why? What's wrong with trying to win Millie? What happens when their mother finds Owen in Millie's bedroom? Right, they must marry.
Poor Millie and Owen, will they ever learn to like one another, maybe even love? What happens when Owen's friend Jack needs his help?
Oh no Owen is shot? By who? Will he, survive? How does Millie react? These questions and more will be answered in this book so I encourage you to get and read it for yourself.
It's a wonderful book, the characters are exceptional and I love the interaction between Owen and Millie. I think you will too.
Owen is determined to marry even if it has to look as if he has been in an compromising position with a woman, with her virtue at stake she will be forced to marry. Unscrupulous, yes very much so, but.... while Owen has one woman in mind it turns out that he unknowing walks into the path of another and has to marry her, I would say that the fates were with both Owen and Milly at this point of time.
Lauren Smith is my go to author for Historical Romances for many reasons, because, as she proves yet again with this wonderful story, she has a gift for transporting you back in time and making you feel as if you are really there. This has been a fun series to read and I look forward to the next book A Scottish Lord for Christmas, Rowena Pepperwirth and Quinn MacCauley, which is due out in early December.
