    through mostly no fault of its own this is definitely my least favorite tessa dare booki think it's important to note that had i gone on synopsis alone i probably wouldn't have picked this book up as much as i love the ocean i loathe books set at sea and especially dislike books about pirating i have no clue why it just doesn't do it for methe story is about Sophia who we learn about in the first book she is seen as a proper lady and is betrothed to a proper gentleman but she craves passion and adventure so she decides to run away and become a governess in a different country and in doing so she must board a ship captained by a very handsome and very unattainable mani was excited going into this but again my excitement was uickly hampered by the setting and on top of that the story just didn't read as very romantic i think when someone is trying to keep their identity a secret it can be difficult to convince me that the two characters are building a relationship on than just lust gray the hero his motivations were never entirely clear to me as a reader and Sophia kind of seemed willing to throw herself at the first guy willing to show her sexual attention as i said not entirely romanticannnnd the nail in the coffin for me was the length of this book a 13 hour historical romance audiobook??? for what reason??anyway carrying on with the third book but i am nervous

    Tessa Dare is definitely on my authors to watch list now I loved her debut novel Goddess of the Hunt and even though this seuel wasn't as amazing as the previous book it was still a great readSophia Hathaway has just abandoned her fiancé Sir Toby Aldridge at the altar and she's decided to finally live her life as she wants and not as her parents and society expect She seeks passion adventure and excitement and she knows she isn't likely to get that by marrying a man she doesn't love So she packs her art supplies and four dresses withdraws five hundred pounds from her bank account oh just imagine the look on the face of the bank clerk wins another hundred pounds at a card party leaves a letter to her family saying that she's eloping with Gervais her fictitious painting master and lover and buys a passage on the Aphrodite the next ship leaving to Tortola Sophia's plan is simple pretending to be a penniless governess Miss Jane Turner on the journey to her next employment she'll be able to leave England and thus escape her parents' pursuit and buy the time she needs not much only a few months until she turns twenty one when she'll assume control of her inheritance and her lifeBenedict Gray Grayson is in his own words a liar a thief a libertine and worse He's no gentleman either but he's the owner of the Aphrodite so Sophia has no choice but to convince him to accept her as a passanger on his ship Gray is a former privateer which is basically a pirate sanctioned by the Crown but now that the war is over he's starting a new life and this will be the first time the Aphrodite will sail the sea as a respectable merchant ship Gray knows from the start that Sophia is going to be a threat to his decision to leave his womanizing days behind but he's also a practical man and the Aphrodite can't afford the luxury of refusing passengers if he wants to make a success of his new business So he takes the vexing woman to his ship and this is how their journey beginsObviously spending time together in close proximity for weeks and weeks makes it hard to control the growing attraction between them and they end up falling in love with each other Gray opens his heart to Sophia and tells her things that he's never shared with anyone On her part she isn't that open afraid that revealing her identity to him will turn him away But the deception will have to end eventually What will happen when Gray finally learns the truth? Will he be able to trust her then? More important will he be able to trust his feelings for her? If she's lied to him all the time does he really know her at all?Kudos to Ms Dare's writing to make this story work for me because I'm not a fan of pirateprivateer heroes or deceitful heroines Gray wasn't a privateer any but this book took place mostly at sea so it was as if he still was As for Sophia she was almost a pathological liar and couldn't tell the truth to save her life Strangely enough I liked both Gray and Sophia despite all that Sure I wanted to shake them well mainly Sophia a couple of times but I found myself rooting for them all the sameGray was a true scoundrel trying to reform and I love that kind of hero He had lied cheated stolen his brother Joss's inheritance not only once but twice and let his sister Bel down He made no excuses for that and he would have done all of it again if given another chance as he believed it was all a means to an end view spoilerto protect his brother and sister to restore their family's fortune and to secure their future hide spoiler

    275 Slightly Bummed Lacklustre StarsBenedict Adolphus Dolly Grayson known by all but his little sister as Gray is a roguish charmer seriously it seems to be an innate component of his character rather than something that feels forced and it made me smile at least after the first scene with him and Sophie that first interaction he didn’t exactly endear him to me Sophia is an innocent lady desiring to leave the constraints of Polite Society and so she does something which she is sure will bar her from the Ton she runaways on her wedding from a very eligible bachelorfiancé Toby and boards a ship leaving the shores of Britain planning to return to London in 3 months so she can acuire her inheritance I very much liked the fact that despite being the typical virginal miss Sophia stood toe to toe with Gray he may have had her blushing at times but she was now cowering miss and embraced the adventures that came her way I did like some of the interaction between Sophia and the crew but overall the sense of emotion and sweetness wasn’t there for meIt wasn’t until the 11% or so mark that I really found myself smiling somewhat as I read The romance between Gray and Sophia has moments that are endearing and cute as they circle each other and the sexual tension between them swells That being said there were also instances in such moments where the spark and potent humourcharm I am coming to expect from Tessa Dare was not entirely there The premise of this sounded fab and the bones of the book could have led to something magical but the execution wasn’t what I was hoping for After my last few reads of Dare’s books my expectations were high but this was just oktepid It didn’t grip my attention and time was not forgotten as I lost myself in the characters and story One Tessa Dare book that won’t be on my re read pile

    A runaway Men who are technically not pirates A strong sense of loyaltySophia the protagonist is rathernaïve That’s not necessarily a bad trait but sometimes I’m just like What the fuck are you doing Sophia???? She can be frustrating I’m of a logical person and I really couldn’t make sense of her reasoning sometimes I mean her concerns in the book are valid in a way but she tends to overreact and run away Anyway she does grow up a bit throughout the book I like that she becomes friends with all the rough seemingly scary guys on the ship Sophia definitely becomes less shallow as she was in the 1st book and becomes someone who’s willing to help out other people It’s fun reading about all their wacky funny interactions She talks to the men draw pictures forof them she’s an artist cooks for them and ultimately becomes their friend The main guy is likable less frustrating than Sophia He seems like just another cocky guy at the beginning but throughout the book we see depth in him He really cares for his family and he’s insecure about messing up things for them I love reading about his complex close relationship with his brother half brother; the brother’s mother was a slave He wants to be a good reputable man for his sister which is sweet He’s increddddibly loyalOverall I like Surrender of a Siren This is a solid 3 stars for me I like the characters and their developments The plot is fun with most of it being on the ship I love that Tessa Dare’s books while there is obviously romance in it also have some really thoughtful moments and introspection This book has definitely shown that It's better than the 1st book in my opinion The cover and the title are notpreferable but it's a good book If you want some romance drama humor loyal family theme strong camaraderie between men who work on a ship etc – try it out Things that you might want to know WARNING Spoilers belowIs there a happysatisfying ending? view spoilerYep With a cute epilogue too hide spoiler

    Four and a half for this one I liked it a lot It was very uniue in that the location is pretty much the same throughout the book It didn't bother me though Every once in a while I would think Wow We've been on a ship the entire time But it was only a surprised observation and not a complaintThere were some great side characters and the hero Gray is very lovable The heroine is Sophia a character featured in Goddess of the Hunt She's the one who gave me some problems I thought she was very good and intriguing throughout most of it An English rose whose suiters and family all want to pamper her as if she's fragile china she just wants some adventure and passion I thought it was a really nice duality for a character to be completely feminine and innocent but to harbor depraved fantasies and a longing for thrill It was a fun twistHowever she's kind of a selfish heroine too She's run away leaving her family no real hint as to where she's gone in addition to the expenses of a canceled wedding and her fiance with nothing but the humiliation of having been jilted Wow What a sweetie Makes me really want to root for her Hurrah ^|So I was torn between liking her uite a bit and wishing she weren't so self centered Then toward the end the author takes us through a stretch where the heroine seems extremely selfish and cowardly It's pretty frustrating and would have cost the book at least one star had Sophia not pulled it out in a scene similar to Elizabeth's testimony before the House of Lords in Judith McNaught's Almost Heaven I have to admit to the frustration with the heroine because it was strong but at the same time I have to applaud Tessa Dare for pulling the whole thing off beautifully

    Sophia Hathaway has run away from everything jilted her groom and is on a secure passage on the ship Aphrodite Posing as a governess Sophia things she has everything planned out to the last letter until her heart pounds and passion flares when she lays eyes on the charming Benedict “Gray” Grayson Gray is trying to live his life on the noble side After years as a privateer Gray feels it’s time to straighten out his life and work to secure a future for his brother his brother’s son and his sister but it’s getting pretty hard with the beautiful governess is always near by tempting him and making his forget about his noble promises Surrender of a Siren was a fast paced and fun read Sophia dreams of something better then being thought of as only a beautiful trinket She wants to be accepted as a woman with a few wanton ideas Thinking the only way to be free was the run away But she can’t help but feel a strong pull toward Gray and decides to do some chasing Gray promised his brother who is the Captain of the Aphrodite he wouldn’t touch the pretty little governess but somehow she keeps invading his thoughts and dreams somehow knowing he was in a losing battle with her in passion and love Gray was one of those characters that drew you in As you learn about his past not only does he feel guilt for what he did to his family but now he’s trying to build bridges that were once burn down between himself and his brother Joss But also thinking of his sister and her future He wasn’t perfect far from it and was very open about the fact but he was very redeemable and did redeem himself ten times over when he was willing to lay his life down for his brother When he fell in love with Sophia he fell hard and was willing to accept her for whom she was even with the lies she weave In Goddess of the Hunt I didn’t care for Sophia and with SOAS I only like her a bit She had a great zest for life and was a great character but I felt she would only show true moments of being a mature woman then run away and hide behind her lies I would have liked her if she faced up and told the truth eailer on to Gray and others then having everything blow up in her face Although she did tell the truth and come clean and see her wrong doings but was dragged along till the end which unnesscary and dragged down the story somewhat With Sophia lies the only downer in an otherwise great story the sexual tension between Sophia and Gray was red hot and some scenes had me reaching for a fan to cool off The humor and some dialogue had me laughing out loud and even the goats got into the show With most of the book taking place on the sea the book never dragged and always kept it’s enjoyable paced Leaving you hanging for the next in the seriesOverall an enjoyable read that will have you laughing at time with a fun happy ending and a lesson of learning to be yourself
