Review: Surrender of a Siren by Tessa Dare

surrender-of-a-sirenFrom the back of the book:

Desperate to escape a loveless marriage and society’s constraints, pampered heiress Sophia Hathaway jilts her groom, packs up her paints and sketchbook, and assumes a new identity, posing as a governess to secure passage on the Aphrodite. She wants a life of her own: unsheltered, unconventional, uninhibited. But it’s one thing to sketch her most wanton fantasies, and quite another to face the dangerously handsome libertine who would steal both her virtue and her gold

To any well-bred lady, Benedict “Gray” Grayson is trouble in snug-fitting boots. A Conscienceless scoundrel who sails the seas for pleasure and profit. Gray lives for conquest – until brave sharks, fire, storm, and sea just to keep her at his side. She’s beautiful, refined, and ripe for seduction. Could this counterfeit governess be a rogue’s redemption? Or will the runaway heiress’s secrets destroy their only chance at love?

I loved this book as much as I did Goddess of the Hunt. Sophie was one of my favorite characters from the first book and I loved her more in this book. She is a woman who knows what she wants and isn’t going to let anyone else tell her what she should do or who she should marry. Gray is trying to do what’s right for his family and in his mind that means being respectable. Together they are quite a couple. Gray tries to resist the tempting Sophie, but doesn’t do a very good job. I love that the whole book (at least most) takes board upon a ship. There was a much different dynamic to Surrender of a Siren than the typical romance. Without the lords and ballrooms it was a very different kind of book. I can’t wait to read A Lady of Persuasion. I *need* to know what happened to Toby after Sophia left him practically at the alter.

the book girl gives SURRENDER OF A SIREN a 5/5!
