Kathleen's Surrender by Nan Ryan

A Southern debutante falls in love with a headstrong gambler
In the unforgiving heat of the Deep South, the cotton barons of Mississippi have created an idyllic playground for their wives and daughters—a playground that Kathleen Beauregard is dying to escape. Trapped in her father’s mansion, she spends her days dreaming of being rescued by a handsome Southern gentleman. Unbeknownst to her, there is a striking young man who has long worshipped her from afar. But though he may be charming, Dawson Blakely is far from a prince. Kathleen meets the well-traveled gambler at one of her father’s interminable parties. Blakely has rough manners and a hot temper; and though she knows he is wrong for her, Kathleen cannot resist him. When these two star-crossed Southerners connect, Dixie will burn before it keeps them apart.

About the Author

Nan Ryan (1936–2017) was an award-winning historical romance author. She was born in Graham, Texas, to Glen Henderson, a rancher postmaster, and Roxy Bost. She began writing when she was inspired by a Newsweek article about women who traded corporate careers for the craft of romantic fiction. She immediately wrote a first draft that she refused to let see the light of day, and was off and running with the success of her second novel Kathleen’s Surrender (1983), a story about a Southern belle’s passionate affair with a mysterious gambler. Her husband, Joe Ryan, was a television executive, and his career took them all over the country, with each new town providing fodder for Ryan’s stories. A USA Today bestseller, she enjoyed critical success the Literary Guild called “incomparable.” When she wasn’t writing, she was an avid sports handicapper, and a supporter and contributor to the Shriners Hospitals for Children and Juvenile Diabetes since the 1980s. Ryan passed away peacefully in her sleep, surrounded by her proud and loving family.
