My enjoyment of this novel is pretty much all about falling for Darius early and wanting him to be happy I wanted to attach to Emma as well but she kept doing things that frustrated me Not that they didn't make sense or weren't in character so much as I just wish she had been someone else Which shouldn't have worked for a romance because you generally want the guy to have a girl you like but Hunter actually made it work at least for meAnd I have to admit that I did sympathize with Emma's struggles to hold things together despite the disadvantages of her gender Yeah those disadvantages are socially constructed but she faces them nonetheless and her efforts to work around them seemed both genuine and courageous even if doomed to eventual failure there's only so long you can maintain a front man on an operation that has so much public contact as you do in an auction house The death of her father has left her with a business that no longer has an obvious leader Yeah she can do all the work as she was trained by her father and it was work she truly loves but society is what it is and pretending her minions are running the show will only stretch so farAnyway those things were sympathetic Less so were her continual evasions of Darius Emma's father used funds from Darius to expand his business in exchange for a half interest So Darius is a legitimate owner and yet Emma treats him with contempt and deception at every turn pretty much right from the start Yeah he wants to sell the business and he's imperious and all but he's still only part owner and she truly has him over a barrel in the sense that he doesn't want exposure as having his hands in trade and thus can't actually force her hand in any legal or potent way She'd have been much better off treating him with enough respect to simply oppose him outright and then give them a basis for working out what it is going to mean from there Frankly not much of the plot would have changed as a result Except for the stupid sneaking around she resorts to because well reasons She is otherwise uite courageous and strong so being so weak in this one case bugged meThis comes to a head for me when near the end she decides to view spoilergive in to the blackmail over her brother's captivity to commit treason I'm sorry but colluding with a French spy network during the Napoleonic Wars was so many levels of wrong I just lost all sympathy with her There are some lines you don't cross and aiding a tyrannical despot is top of that list This is undoubtedly a part of my paladin core but death before dishonor while in the main rather silly has a place when it comes to the well being of millions; not least when that includes the potential fall of your very own country Not to mention that the risk of discovery was easily in the neighborhood of fifty fifty the absolute certain conseuence of which is death by hanging So it's not only stupidly sentimental it's also foolhardy on a level that comes dangerously close to too stupid to live hide spoiler

T man who will do her bidding The Surrender EpubAll would have proceeded smoothly if it weren't for the maddening interference of Darius the arrogant Earl of Southwaite who has been her father's silent partner and now shares ownership of Fairbourne's An earl of course has no interest in running an auction house and Darius is certainly not interested in allowing the lovely Miss Fai. If you have read the other reviews you'll notice to words bland andor boring I can only confirm it This book is so forgettable that one star may be too much Yes the author writes in a competent manner the plot seems interesting enough But when all is said and done everything is flatThe problems start with the title itself There's no surrender Because there's no battle We are promised a strong and intelligent heroine But I failed to see her After the first promising chapters less than 20% in to the book she transforms into a whimpering mass of hormones He smiles she whimpers and literally stop thinking He seduces her in a bat LiterallyThere's no conflict that keeps you interested Yes the smuggling plot is there but you don't feel it You do not feel her desperation or his betrayal I really did not enjoy this book a whiff Pity Because the class difference for once weren't downplayed too muchFor a five star review please read Hannah's

I'm a huge MH fan I never thought I would say thisever But this is one of the most boring books I have ever read So bland I wasn't excited when the two main characters got into bed together And to think that this is the woman who gave the world the Rarest Blooms In fact I thought she'd written this book back in the day like early 2000's only to learn that this book is uite recentHer writing is still good and the banter between the characters has some charming moments but Emma gets so annoying and Darius can get too hypocritical In fact these two seem to be meant for each other because on these pages they seemcolorless I doubt I will remember their names in a week I'm disappointed and as I write this review I have about 80 pages to the end of the book and I don't care I think I will skip to find out the end of the mystery and that will be itI think it is time I take a break from MH for a while and wait until she comes out with a better book
