An unconventional princess.
A man sent to protect her at all costs.
Navy SEAL and Special Ops Major Anthony Garrison has secretly had Princess Shayla’s six for the last four years. He’s been her comrade, confidant, and drinking buddy, all while fighting a growing attraction.
Watching asshole guys hit on her as he’s forced to deny his own desires is slowly driving him crazy.
When the princess is captured and held hostage, Anthony blames himself and goes against great odds to save her.
Princess Shayla is held prisoner for months and begins to lose hope of ever being rescued. Her one regret is never having acted on her attraction to her co-pilot and friend. Now she doesn’t know if he’s a captive like her…or even alive.
During a courageous rescue attempt, Anthony becomes both her savior and a stranger who’d lied to her for years. Still, the lure of her desire proves stronger than her distrust of the man who betrayed her. Anthony may be the only person to help her heal, but can she trust him to be more?
Then one night…
One kiss changes everything.
All books in the SuMartra world can be read as standalones but for a richer reading experience the following order is recommended.
3 Heart Review by Ashley
Royals and romantic suspense? Yes please. That was exactly why I made Surrender to Love my first read from Lizabeth Scott.
I liked the witty, fun and easy banter between Ant and Shayla. Their friendship was clear but what wasn't so clear to them was the feelings they were both harboring for one another. But all of that was short lived when a standard mission takes a tragic turn. My heart was in my throat the whole time reading what was happening. And even more so after things were 'resolved'.
Thank goodness she had people who truly knew her looking out for her and seeing that she wasn't ok. And they called in reinforcements, namely Ant. I liked how he respected her feelings but also gave her the gentle push to break her out of her spiral of anxiety and fear.
I'm not going to lie, this was much more emotional than I thought it would be. I liked that Lizabeth Scott didn't sugarcoat the toll Shayla's situation had on her. Shayla and Ant's journey to happiness was an honest look at trauma and how it changes you. And how love can pull you out of that darkness.
