I generally enjoy this author's books, but this attempt at a gothic novel wasn't completely successful.

Great charecter building and well written, but didnt care for Alistaire. I struggled in enjoying the book when the hero is a child abuser. I kept hoping Violet would kidnap the child, instead she falls in love with him?! How can you love someone who keeps his daughter locked in a dungeon?

I loved this story! I found myself not being able to put it down. Violet is on the run and collapses at the abbey where Allistair and his daughter reside in the dark. I loved the interactions between the characters. Each one is complex, even the servants that you do not hear that much about. The best thing, it was free of errors! I have read several of Erica Ridley's books and each one has been fantastic!

I enjoyed the book. The author added some unusual elements that kept things interesting. Loved the heroine - strong, smart, sexy with a big heart. Had a bit if difficulty understanding how, given her childhood, she could manage employment as a governess. Did not care for the hero - a complete idiot all the way around. Other than being wealthy and intending to do the right thing, had very bad judgment in many areas. Still, book is well written and edited. I enjoyed it

A Myrt's Review Dark Surrender by Erica Ridley A Great Gothic Read The story begins immediately with Violet on the run from trouble and  finding shelter at a dark shuttered abbey where a mysterious gentleman, Alistair, and his 9 year old daughter, Lillian, live.  All natural light is blocked within the abbey and Alistair and the staff are vigilant in preventing Lillian from ever going outside as Alistair and Lillian have a potentially fatal sensitivity to sunlight.  Violet takes on the position of governess to the angry and high strung Lillian who lashes out at everyone around her in desperate frustration at her situation. The story builds with large helpings of both mystery and passion. The detailed descriptions of Violet's surroundings and the characters' interactions immerse the reader in the story and hold the reader's attention to the very end with unexpected secrets being revealed. This is a terrific read in the gothic genre with a unique situation driving the story.  Definitely not a tale to be missed. I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.
