Victor Bramwell, the new Earl of Rycliff, knows he doesn't belong here. So far as he can tell, there's nothing in this place but spinsters . . .and sheep. But he has no choice, he has orders togather a militia. It's a simple mission, made complicated by the spirited, exquisiteSusanna Finch--a woman who is determined tosave her personal utopia from the invasion ofBram's makeshift army.

Susanna has no use for aggravating men;Bram has sworn off interfering women. The sceneis set for an epic battle...but who can be namedthe winner when both have so much to lose?

Our customer reviews

Susanna Finch is living at Spindle Cove, a retreat for ladies escaping from men. Susanna is strong, full of energy and loves her friends at Spindle Cove, a place where the population are mostly women. But when Victor Bramwell is named as the new Earl of Rycliff, Susanna's peace is disturbed. He's sexy, stubborn, and impressed by Susanna and her friends. I really liked Bram and Susanna's romance. They move very quickly and their love scenes are very steamy! But still their relationship seemed realistic and very romantic. But I mostly loved Susanna. She's one of my favorite heroines. Very strong and intelligent, I felt like I could relate with her because she was very ladylike but liked to do men's stuff, as firing guns! I also liked the secondary characters. They are so fun! Everyone has it's own personality, and I want to know each of their stories. A Night to Surrender was the first book I read from Tessa Dare, but I immediately loved her writing. Her story is original and funny, it starts with sheep bombing! Who else can write a romance book that starts with sheep bombing and you still want to continue reading it? Overall, I loved A Night to Surrender and I can't wait to read Colin's and Minerva's story at A Week to be Wicked.show more
