First professional review of Surrender the Dawn!

Just released from Romantic Times.  Just to whet your appetites!  And remember, Surrender the Dawn month starts this Friday!!

4 stars!!  ****
A good old-fashioned historical packed with rich, beautiful details launches the Surrender to Destiny series with pirates, swordplay and lots of romance. The characters are so much fun, readers will not want the book to end. Tyndall is a gem, and her characters are bold and believable.

Summary: Cassandra Channing will do everything within her power to support her family The only thing she can think of is hiring Luke Heaton as a privateer with the last of her money. She knows if he gets captured or the ship sinks, she is out of options and time. Luke has his own problems: the British are blackmailing him into selling his bounty to them. With war raging around them, Juke and Cassandra will have to work together to survive. (Barbour, Aug., 320 pp., $12.99), Patsy Glans
