    Rushed With Issues Left Uneplained

    Surrendered is a straight-forward story about a woman of privilege forced to find a man to marry amongst a suitable list and ends up with someone totally unexpected. Set in the world of the Fae we get to see exotic characters with supernatural abilities living in castles like any other royalty. Niamh is a rather weak and spoiled heroine who's of the upper class and who is targeted for assassination for a reason not made clear. After a brush with death the Queen assigns her a bodyguard who she immediately butts heads with but is immediately attracted to too. Their sexual tension is obvious and immediately morphs into something much more intense. Niamh gets easily frustrated by her guard's secrets which causes her to put herself even closer to danger and barely escapes on her own while the fallout puts her guard in danger instead.

    Doyle doesn't like the upper class as his parents abandoned him to keep up their hoity-toity appearances. He's been searching for their identities and is given the chance to discover their names upon completing his assignment for the Queen. He's an honorable man who's good at his job but gets put in his place often by Niamh. He's attracted to her against his better judgment and commences an unexpected, and unbelievably quick, relationship that almost gets him killed. Luckily the Queen is on his side and a quick and satisfying conclusion ensues.

    The sexual interludes are steamy but I still feel that their relationship is based on sex as they spent little time actually talking and discovering each other's pasts. The identity of the villain comes out of nowhere and his reasons for his actions aren't quite clear, but he is a very nasty person indeed. The exoticness of the world of the Fae is just hinted at but it's a world of sex and fun. Niamh and Doyle aren't into that though, so their scenes are much quieter but no less sexually charged because of their strong attraction. This was a fast-paced story but felt rushed too. This story was entertaining but I felt like there should be more, this felt like just a glimpse of a bigger picture. And it's a picture I look forward to seeing more of......

    3.5 STARS!
