Alexander Edgeware, Lord Xavier doesn’t like to turn down a bet, so when his cousin Lord Longwood wagers that he cannot get the prim and proper Lady Louisa Oliver to attend his famously naughty Christmas part and stay for the whole two weeks, Xavier makes it his next goal to prove that he can. As a man notorious for his wicked ways, Xavier uses his charm to get a rise out of Lady Louisa. So the question stands, does the bookish Lady Louisa stand a chance against the wicked lord?

SEASON FOR SURRENDER was a sweet and uplifting read. I enjoyed the characters very much. Lady Louisa was particularly endearing because of her love for books and a secret thrill for experiencing the unspeakable. She’s a curious one who seemed to bring a bit of innocence and light into Lord Xavier’s world. They got along wonderfully and I loved Romain’s ability to infuse the book with sweetness and teasing sexiness.

As my first book from Theresa Romain, I found that I enjoyed her writing style very much. She has a great voice, but sometimes I felt that some scenes went on for a little too long. But I do think that the characters made up for that.

I was a little skeptical because I don’t usually enjoy books where a bet is the key to which the hero and heroine meet, but Romain put her own unique twist to this trope that made it enjoyable.

The holiday theme is prominent and definitely gives this book a more romantic feel. After reading this, I think I’m likely to seek what’s next for Theresa Romain.

I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
