A Love Surrendered - A Review & A Contest Link

Annie Kennedy is a small-town girl who finds herself transplanted to Boston in the middle of her senior year in high school to live with her spinster aunt. She has one purpose - find true love - since it'll fill the void left in her heart by the deaths of her parents. Prohibition agent, Steven O'Connor, thinks Annie is too sweet for her own good. He cautions her stay away from men in the fast crowd she's running with, men like him. Annie finds herself falling hard for Steven, knowing he broke her sister's heart. Will he break hers as well or will Annie's heart be willing to surrender to a love she never expected?

The O'Connor family is back with this final volume in the Winds of Change Series. I've watched Steven grow up from the little boy in Passion Most Pure to the strong confident man he is in Love Surrendered. I have to say, I've become quite attached to this family and didn't want the book to end. Annie is like a breath of fresh air for the bitter Steven. When both of them figure out what it means to be loved by God, I couldn't help cheering. I would love to see more with the O'Connor family.

I received this book for free from the publisher, Revell Books, for the purpose of reviewing. My thoughts and opinions are my own.

Available in October, 2012 at your local bookstore, from Revell Books, a division of Baker Publishing Group.

Recommended to fans of family drama, Karen Kingsbury fans, historical fiction, Mary Connealy fans.

Rating - 5 stars

Julie has a contest going on right now. I'm thrilled to be able to promote the contest she's got going on.

Just by pre-ordering her Christmas novella, A Light in the Window, and letting her know, you could win a Kindle Fire! Or maybe you'd like to have a character named after you in a future book? All of the details to both contests can be found here.
