Review: Season for Surrender – Theresa Romain

Honor Among Rogues
Alexander Edgeware, Lord Xavier, has quite a reputation—for daring, wagering, and wickedness in all its delightful forms. But the wager before him is hardly his preferred sport: Xavier must persuade a proper young lady to attend his famously naughty Christmas house party—and stay the full, ruinous two weeks. Worse, the lady is Louisa Oliver, a doe-eyed bookworm Xavier finds quite charming. Yet to refuse the challenge is impossible—he will simply have to appoint himself Miss Oliver’s protector…

Mischief Among Misses
Louisa knows her chance for a husband has passed. But she has no desire to retire into spinsterhood without enjoying a few grand adventures first. When Lord Xavier’s invitation arrives, Louisa is more intrigued than insulted. And once inside the rogues’ gallery, she just may have a thing or two to teach her gentlemen friends about daring.
My thoughts:
Are you getting a sense of Deja vu? Well then you are correct cos I have already posted a review of this one on my blog. Rameau’s review, but then Anachronist asked if I would write one too? And I thought about it and thought why not. It will be fun to compare.
I am glancing at Rameau’s review while writing this 😉
I did think the smexing came to fast in this book, suddenly there it was and I was all lime wow, slow down people. Seems Rameu found a way of approving this while I am not too happy about it. Just too fast.
The heroine loves books, and that means I loved the heroine and it really showed what a booklover she was.
The whole rogue aspect around Xavier I did not get, I would have wished for him to be explored, or explained more.
Seems Rameau liked the discussions the couple had, I fear I found those part the most dull. Nothing happened (of course then smack! smexing).
She wonders about Lockwood, well I sure hope he does not get a book, but yes Jane should get one. She is a cousin of Xavier and a sweet thing.
Conclusion:
All in all, bluestocking meets Rogue and soon it all starts. Of course he means to seduce her to win a wager and she, well she wants to live for once.

    bahahaha yes. There would be no respectable women left for the rest of the men unless England established a law saying that men can marry more then woman, so there could be a lot of shot-gun weddings.

    True, I mean shall we just think the throw caution for the wind, when it is so against everything they know. And the thing is, it would have been too early for me in Rl too
