Surrender the Night
A timid American farm girl at the mercy of the enemy...a wounder British solider driven into hiding...both are about to change the course of history forever.
When British soldiers invade Baltimore amid the War of 1812, Rose McGuire, alone on her family farm, is easy prey for a brutal lieutenant. In the midst of the attack she's saved by British 2nd Lieutenant Alexander Reed. Will she now have to heal, as well as hide, this wounded enemy soldier?
Alex hadn't meant to kill his superior or get shot in the process. Now badly wounded, he's at the mercy of this tomboy who obviously hates him. Can he trust her, or will she turn him over to the Americans?
Rose is having trouble keeping Alex hidden from her family, the townspeople, and the man intent on courting her. Will the discovery of Alex's presence force her to accept an abhorrent proposal?
As their love blooms, trouble looms, for the British are on the march again. This time their target is the City of Washington. Will these young lovers at heart find themselves enemies at war?
A GRIPPING, PAGE-TURNING ROMANCE SET IN AN INTERESTING TIME PERIOD. TYNDALL HAS SET UP AN IMPOSSIBLE SCENARIO, THROWN HER HERO AND HEROINE INTO THE MIDDLE OF IT AND VOILA -- IMMEDIATE FIREWORKS! THE RELATIONSHIP IS DOOMED FROM THE START AND I WAS ANXIOUS TO SEE HOW TYNDALL WOULD MANAGE TO BRING RESOLUTION TO THEIR ROMANCE.
DEFINITELY NOT PREDICTABLE, BUT VERY FULFILLING. COMEDIC MOMENTS ARE INTERSPERSED WITH DRAMATIC ONES AND WATCH OUT WHEN THE ROMANCE HEATS UP! THE PERFECT COMBINATION FOR A HISTORICAL ROMANCE.
