Little does Lady Monique know that James has inserted himself in her life for revenge. As truths come out and feelings play a big part in their decisions, everything is about to crumble. Fascinating, this wa [...]

    The sins of the parents can cause havoc on their offspring--especially when the entire tale is not told. James Stanton was in such a predicament. His Mom, on her deathbed made him swear to take revenge on the woman she swore had ruined her life. But the more James grew to knew Monique and the rest of her family-the more he began to question himself, and what he was going to do to this family. Then he totally fell in love with Monique-and she with him.When all the truths are finally revealed-(and [...]

  • D. Domain

    My Impressions: Pacing is medium to slow, however, the book is well-written. Initially, both hero and heroine are quite insufferable (for different reasons). Lady Monique is a bit snooty. Mr. Stanton is bitter and manipulative. I about DNFed the book (eh, admittedly, I’m a bit trigger-happy sometimes). Still, it was interesting in a soap-ish kinda way. The hero and herione didn't invoke much empathy, but I strangely wanted to know what would happen with the two of them.The Love Story: Thankful [...]

    It is Lady Monique's last season to find a husband. People those days know that if one didn't get married in three seasons, she'd be considered as a 'spinster' (old maid). Yikes! So she is very determined to attend all the balls -- she has to make sure she gets the best, titled man. After attending a few balls, she realized everyone who has pursued her in the last two seasons were either married or getting married. There is one man that stood out among the ball's crowd, James Stanton. Problem is [...]

    I haven't read a historical romance in a while and it felt like a breather from all the fantasy and contemporary romances I've been reading as of late.Story wise, I can't say it's any different from some of the books I've read before both historical and contemporary. But being a historical romance that this is, the author definitely succeeded in making it sound and appear like the 1800. I felt like I was transported back in time as I read along. From the dialogue, the setting, the theme, the aut [...]

    Lady Monique Cathdon, sister of the Duke of Glenhurst, was just finishing her third Season and had not yet chosen a husband. In previous Seasons, in which she had so many proposes, now it seemed everyone had gone. The worst was that her mother was pushing her to choose one from the nobility.Until then Monique thought more important than having a husband from nobility, her marriage should be for love, but she didn't think the same way yet, she didn't want displease her mother who still was underg [...]

    Uberreader's review of A Gentleman's Surrender by Mariel GreyMay 31, 2016By Heather DanielleFirst and foremost this is a book about how people's secrets and lies not only affect their lives, but the lives of others. James Stanton believes he is avenging the insults done to his mother by her husband and another woman, but before he can complete his plans both his conscience and love find him. He falls in love with one of the innocents that will be injured by his mother's death bed request. This b [...]

  • Julie Baswell

    It seems Lady Monique Cathdon has waited too long to seriously snag a suitable match for a husband. Everyone she had previously enjoyed flirting with had now been spoken for, leaving her with a pool of undesirables. Then, the handsome and alluring James Stanton appears and starts earnestly wooing her. But since he has no title, there’s no way Monique’s mother will allow her to consider him marriage material. With her options quickly diminishing, will Monique follow her mother’s wishes and [...]

    A Gentleman’s Surrender is a wonderful novel! It’s a sad but romantic story of honor and revenge. I fell in love with Monique, she’s a great character and her friendship with Lucy is refreshing. Even though I tried not to like Stanton I couldn’t help myself. He’s a lot of fun when he’s not plotting revenge.Don’t miss A Gentleman’s Surrender but remember it’s a heart wrencher!More…Author: Mariel GreySource: I received an ARC of A Gentleman’s Surrender from it’s author Mari [...]

    A buy for a read that is light and easy. now having said thatThis writer writes in a manner that allows me to be part of the time period. It is colorful in imagination and flow. It unwinds and unfolds with plots and passion and sweet romance. The era is written well with historical threads. Shall I interpret this? Okay If you watch a scene in real life it has color and drama and love and laughter. Reading this book felt the same way. It had all the elements and flowed gently from one area to ano [...]

  • Shelly

    Like Lucy Goodwin, Lady Monique Cathdon is a bit of a rebel. In a time period of when marriages were typically designed more as business arrangements, she wants to only marry for true love. She has a whimsical sense about her that gives her an aura of innocence. Enter James Stanton. If ever a person could be her opposite, Stanton would be it. He challenges every belief about true love, marriage, etc. that Lady Monique Cathdon has designed in her dreams. Her rebellion is shown when she falls for [...]

    I received a free copy for an honest and unbiased review.I have always loved Regency romances. So I was eager to try out a new author when I signed up for this blog tour.The characters were realistic and they were very apt in their setting. I loved Monique with her strength and passion. James wasn't upto my liking at the start but he kind of grew on me. The period setting was very well done. The author had done a very good job of integrating the right period authenticity into the story.The roman [...]

  • Melissa

    I really liked this story. I have read plenty of historical romances from this time period and it isn't uncommon for them to have the same general plot outline but I have never actually read one with a story line quite like this. It easily kept my interest and had me rooting for Monique and James to overcome some pretty huge obstacles. The characters were described well and the parts with Corkie (dog) were pretty darn funny and the horse part too! They hit all the popular locations for that time [...]

  • Jessica Hoopingarner

    After receiving this authors first book I ordered this one. I did enjoy this one more than the previous! What I really like about this book is how much conflict is really going on. Its not a simple girl concerned about dresses and balls. its real issues here folks! Its a fun read and kept me guessing about what was really going on until the end. I enjoyed that she continued to use characters from her other book in this one. I like seeing the story from different sides. I have it on good authorit [...]

  • Bailey Ember

    I think the thing I love the most about Historical Novels is how naive and impressionable the women are, but the fact that they are also strong in their own right which defy their generation. I think this is a great description of Monique.I think I may have been missing a little more of the history lesson (I need a bit since I'm not very good in History) to help me understand everything that went into this period. I was able to understand most of it, but a little more would have made it perfect. [...]

  • C. Gonzales

    Historical Romance books really rely on the authors ability to make the reader feel like they are living in a different time. Mariel Grey manages to do this effortlessly. Because this is dealing in a different time period, the multitude of themes throughout the book are quite different then those in your typical novel. Be prepared to be taken on a rollercoaster ride of emotions.I loved the development of Monique and James's relationship. Their chemistry was very believable and the relationship t [...]

  • Ever Leigh

    To start with, Gorgeous Cover. I absolutely love the cover model and dress. Oh Boy, I'm a sucker for Historical Romance. There is something so fun about being transported back in time and feeling like your living in a different era if an author can execute it well, its an even better escape than reading Contemporary. Mariel Grey has penned a wonderful Historical Romance. I really did love so many of the aspects separately and as a whole.I just really felt like I got a great escape with this nove [...]

    I received a free copy for an honest review. I enjoyed this story of James and Monique's romance and the mystery of his reason for revenge. The storyline was well written and didn't lack in intrigue and machinations from James to ruin Monique and her family. Ms. Grey is establishing herself as a great author in the historical romance niche. I really liked the chapter where Monique's mother reveals to James the true story of all their parents, it was unexpected and brilliant. A wonderful story an [...]

    I read this book in exchange for an honest review. Monique is in her third season and she feels pressure to make a good match. First it just seem standards, but there is an underlying layer to the good match. Stenson wants to revenge his mother.This all makes up for a romantic, suspenseful story.I loved reading it.

  • Sarah

    Ultimately, this book was about average for the historical romance, Regency subgenre. It had a lot of the cliché’s from the genre: social gatherings, posturing for position on the marriage market, rigorous protocols for propriety, and a Regency plotline I’ve seen done before. Yet for all that, I found this tale enjoyable if not totally immersed by it.I did like the leads, Monique and James. I felt they had a sufficient chemistry and sweet romance between them to make a successful romantic s [...]

  • Cary Morton

    I received a copy of this book directly from the author/publisher in exchange for an honest review.A Gentleman’s Surrender by Mariel Grey was a bit of a mixed bag from the start. The author obviously put a lot of time into researching the period and the world that Monique inhabited (and yes, I did my own research to figure out that although it sounds more modern, Monique was a French name sometimes used in this time period though I can’t speak as to how popular it was or why no one seemed to [...]

    If you're looking for another historical romance novel, then I suggest Mariel Grey's A Gentleman's Surrender. Monique Cathdon, sister to the current Duke of Glenhurst, is looking for a suitor before the Season is over. All seems lost until she meets Sir James Stanton. Everything seems to be going well until she discovers he has no title. Is it all over for Monique? James Stanton has returned to England from the United States, seemingly wanting to find an English bride and restore the family home [...]

  • Mary

    I have very mixed feelings about this book. One of my least-favorite tropes is that of a man taking revenge on someone by hurting an innocent-of-wrong young lady- either physically or emotionally. I really had to struggle as James Stanton plans to destroy the Duchess by ruining her son and her daughter, Monique.One of the redeeming qualities, is that the reader is able to know James' struggles with what he plans on doing to Lady Monique. The downside is that I really didn't like the ending- it w [...]

  • Tressa (Wishful Endings)

    I had high hopes for this one, especially since I was in a historical romance mood. The writing was decent as were the characters. The overall plot was also intriguing. There was some repetition, but I could overlook that. The issue was really that I was expecting a clean romance and instead found this one pushing the line with references to body parts, characters envisioning the marriage bed, and a dog that had some tendencies that just came off as crass. If those things would have been removed [...]

  • Robyn Echols

    Calculated to keep my interestIt was obvious from the start that James Stanton had an interest in meeting Monique for reasons other than pursuing romance. This story with its twists and turns kept me guessing what he was really up to and why. As the circumstances unfolded, it became obvious there were secrets, and it was interesting to see how all the involved characters felt about their choices and the actions they chose to deal with the situation. Romance elements were slightly sensual. Story [...]
