A Love Surrendered, a review

Orphaned in Iowa, Annie Kennedy has moved to Boston and is embracing the city life, with a new name and a wide-open future. When she gets involved with a fast crowd at Ocean Pier — one that includes the handsome Steven O’Connor — she is pulled deeper and deeper into a world of rule breakers and mischief makers. She finds herself drawn to Steven and the whole O’Connor family. But a secret Annie is keeping has the power to destroy her best-laid plans. Will Steven ever see her as more than a sweet country girl who needs protecting? And will he break her heart when he finds out who she really is? With heart-pounding romance, intense family drama, and the emotional twists and turns Julie Lessman fans have come to expect, A Love Surrendered will ignite your senses and inspire your spirit.

Julie Lessman is one writer NOT TO MISS.  Reading her novels is quite the experience- a wonderful way to delve into another world.  This is the third in a series, and I think perhaps my favorite book of the series.   I was on pins and needles, wondering what would become of Annie and her "secret."  The characters Julie creates are so entertaining and enthralling....never a flat character, and never a slow plot.   Thrilling!  And not only do you have one hero and heroine to follow, but several, and Lessman accomplishes this so well. It is not confusing, but a story that compels.  Bravo!
Thank you to Revell/ Baker Publishing for a complimentary copy of this book in return for an original review.
