FX OF THE 18TH CENTURY
SURRENDER TO A STRANGER is a terrific historical romance set in France--the country of romance. However, the French Revolution is not a very romantic time. Rather it is one of upheaval, murder & distrust. Heroine Jacqueline is an aristocrat locked in a filthy prison, awaiting her decapitation by Mme. Guillotine the following day. She is visited by an elderly lawyer on the eve of her death. He will help her write her will. However, it turns out that he is the Black Prince--a master of disguise who helps spirit French aristocrats out of the country & into England. He & Jacqueline are on the road, and constantly on the move, and the tension they live under provides the pressure cooker that leads them to love. Karyn Monk dresses her characters with disguise after disguise, and the sense of surprise for the reader never lets up. Bantam Books released this a few years ago & it's terrific to see it again so a new audience can find this captivating romantic read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
