The third in a trilogy, "Surrender My Love" lacks in the romance department. The story is about a Viking exacting vengeance on his beautiful Danish tormenter - oh yeah, and then they fall in love in the last 50 or so pages.
I have nothing against Selig, the angel-faced Viking hero. I loved him as the twice-blessed baby in "Fires of Winter" and as Kristen's returned-from-the-dead brother in "Hearts Aflame." He is so charming! But in "Surrender My Love," Selig doesn't get much opportunity to use that charm. Instead, he's wounded and beaten so badly in the beginning of the book that the whole story revolves around his pain, slow recovery, and revenge. I for one wished Selig hadn't suffered yet another wound, as his previous injuries in "Heart's Aflame" were bad enough. But Johanna Lindsey felt the need to hurt poor Selig once more - and screw up his much-anticipated love story in the process. Why?!?
Selig is paired up with Erika, a Danish Viking maid - and the girl who had him lashed. So, in Viking tradition, he takes her prisoner (only to fall in love). But, unlike the stories involving his mother and sister, Erika is no spirited vixen of a captive. She's not even witty. She accepts her chains and humiliation without a peep. Again, why does Selig fall in love?!?
I can't say this story was terrible. After all, lots of characters from the earlier books returned, so it was a fun family reunion. But ... it was bogged down with back-story. Sub-characters like King Alfred and Meghan, who were so alive in the previous books, were carbon cutouts in "Surrender." New characters, like Turgeis the Shadow, were actually intriguing, but so little used, it was sad. Worse, there was no passion or hanky panky until about page 330 - the last 80 or so pages of a 400+ page book.

Well I won't go into the plot because it's already been done. All I will do is describe how I felt about the book. It was quiet gripping,I hardly could put it down. Although the approach wasn't anywhere near new or unique,'Surrender My Love' succedes in gripping your senses by sweetness and special charm. What I liked also, was the strong sense of family and friendship floating around. It was clear that every member of the family cared dearly about the other and would die willingly to spare the other any pain. So, you can't help but care yourself about them and love every one of them. Selig, the hero, is a woman's fantasy come true <sighhh>. Brave, pleasant,and well,handsome beyond words. Erika, on the other hand I believe to lack spirit and enough fire. WEll there are lots of elements I like in this book including: family love, the hero gets hurt and comfort, love story,slight humour and more. It lacks enough adventure but to me every story does, but still, it would've helped alot if the story was bumped with some more action and adventure to keep me happier. This book is the third in the series. The first deals with the parents love story, and the second with the daughter's. 'Surrender my love' is the third of the Viking series and it deals with Selig, the oldest son. I haven't read the other books so I can't compare but all in all, if you want an entertaining book, don't miss this one. It's a keeper.

You can read the editorial reviews for the book description. I did not care for this book at all. When I read a romance novel, I need some actual romance in the novel. Romance to me is very important IN a romance novel {Just incase I didn't make myself clear}. This book has NO romance in it at all. The two main characters peppered each other with insults constantly. By the end of the book they discover that they are completely in love with one another, which is fine but the books is 403 pages long. Their first real romantic encounter {and I have to say it this way for the review to make it on but I mean the act it self} did not happen until 320 pages of the book {I could be wrong on the actual page number but I do know it was after page 300}. In other words it took just do darn long to get to the GOOD PART. Which in my opinion, that too was seriously lacking. Having read the author before and knowing full well of what she is capable of writing, this will in no way stop me from purchasing her books in the future but I was really disappoint in this particular read.

On the back of the book: A Lady's Scorn. Wrongly branded a spy, the dark and handsome Viking lod Selig Haardrad suffered greatly in the dungeons of Lady Erika of Gronwood. And as he hung in chains, his magnificent body wracked with pain and fever, on thought sustained him: revenge! A Vikings Vengeance. Now Destiny's great wheel has turned-and Selig's exquisite, honey-haired tormentor has been delivered into the Norseman's hands. Now it is Selig who is the maste, bound and determined to break the proud spirit of his captive "ice queen" and to conquer her with passion's sword-never dreaming that his own heart will be vanquished by sensuous desire... and vicorious love..... My thoughts on the book: Selig is a character who first appears in "Heart Aflame" as the heroin Kirten's sister and manages to steal some of the limelight. A man much loved by women all his life this book deals with a presumed action by a woman agianst him. He is as much in shock as he is out for revenge and actually finds he has a hard time really carrying out his revenge but it makes for good tense reading at times as you don't know just what Selig might do. A great read, I loved the two lead character of Selig and Erika. She is in a tense kidnapping situation and is brave and strong without being overbearing or unbelievable [unlike Kirsten in Heart Aflame] given the situation. .....An exciting read.
