Lynn Spencer - All About Romance

I'm one of the publishers of All About Romance. I love reading romance, as well as mysteries, fantasy, history and historical fiction, and all kinds of other things. Staying on Goodreads for now but trying this out in case I decide to switch.

Season for Surrender

Season for Surrender - Theresa Romain I gave this a C+ on AAR, so 3.5 stars here. Here's what I had to say about it: Sometimes the hardest books to assess are the ones where the parts don't add up to a coherent whole. In Season for Surrender, the good parts of the book really were strong: Deep introspection that didn't devolve into psychobabble, characters who really do grow and change, and a sweet romance. However, the plotting dragged painfully at times, making the Regency house party setting feel like the most boring Christmas festival ever.Alexander Edgeware, Lord Xavier, plays a well-defined role in Society. He is good humored, witty, a rake, and a man who always wins his bets. Xavier enjoys a deliciously scandalous reputation, but one that entertains rather than risks heavy censure. The book opens with his cousin Lockwood challenging him to a bet. The two wager ten pounds on whether Xavier can convince Louisa Oliver, a proper young bluestocking, to attend Xavier's infamous Christmas house party. If Louisa leaves before the party ends, Xavier loses the bet. This is a partial review.
