Bookshelf Friday - Surrender the Heart

I've heard a lot about Marylu Tyndall's "Surrender to Destiny" series lately. Her name was new to me and about the third time it crossed my path I decided to add her series to my to-be-read list. This weekend I ended up with some unexpected time to read and opened my Kindle. About a month ago I'd downloaded some specials from Kindle's Free Book list. Imagine my surprise when I found Surrender the Heart, #1 in Marylu's series on my Kindle. I opened it with great expectations...they were more than met! If you have not already discovered this series, pick it up. Especially if Historical Fiction is your thing. Then again, even if it's not, you'll still love this story.

A young mistrustful lady desperate to save her family. . .

A guilt driven man desperate to please his. . .

Both caught in the brink of a war that could change the course of history forever.

On the brink of the War of 1812, Marianne Denton must marry to unlock her inheritance. Without the money, her mother can’t receive medical care and her sister will be destitute. But Noah Brenin needs to sail his cargo to England before the war commences in order to prove his worth to his father and make enough money so he won’t have to marry at all.

When Noah walks out on their engagement party, Marianne chases him down and ends up on his merchantman out at sea. The situation worsens when Noah’s ship encounters a British man-of-war and the couple is impressed into the British navy.

While a young lad’s prophecy of destiny looms over them both, Marianne and Noah are forced to face their darkest fears as they desperately try to find a way to escape and fulfill their destinies-destinies that could change the course of the war and history forever.


  1. I'm glad that you like this one. I did too. :)Have you read any of her other books?

    MaryLu agreed to be interviewed on my blog today, stop by for a chance to win the last book in this series. :)

  2. I stopped by, and now I'm adding The Redemption to my TBR list. Her first novel is also your favorite? Can only get better from there:)

  3. I loved this one, too, Susan! Very good book! I have the other two books in the series waiting on my shelf. I also have The Redemption. Now, if I could only read faster, lol. ;-)
