    Laura Landon has a way of creating really interesting characters

    Laura Landon has a way of creating really interesting characters and situations, but Intimate Surrender gets a little repetitive in the conflict between our characters. As an owner of London's most infamous bordello, Hannah knows she isn't a good match for the Vicar Rafe Waterford. She repeatedly tells us until I hoped someone in the story would slap some sense into her. Her occupation isn't even as bad as it sounds - it once was, but now she is a woman with a mission and a purpose in life. It was all very admirable. 




    Vicar Rafe Waterford doesn't care that the woman he loves used to be prostitute, she isn't now, and maybe no one will recognize her if she changes locations or something. Good idea in theory - but not when a person isn't interested in changing who they are. 




    The most interesting part of this story wasn't the romance, unfortunately, but the turf war between the bordellos. It escalated quickly and reminded me a bit of the gang wars large cities have now. At first I was amazed at what people were willing to do to try and keep their girls, but I guess it's a matter of paying the bills in a business like that.
