Rowena Sharpe and Delphine are sisters. Lord Simon Rutherford is brother to their friend Alice. He’s also the man that jilted Rowena.
Rowena’s trying to sleep and has a late night visit – and it’s not her sister. Or is it all a dream? Simon has missed Rowena but blames their distance on his old friend, Paul.
Vivienne is like an artist. She’s painting us a picture of what our characters look like. She does the same thing with their location. These “pictures” are what help us to visualize what is going on and is why we keep turning the page.
Vivienne also puts a little mystery in the mix – why did Rowena choose Paul over Simon. In order to solve the mystery, you need to keep on reading. And like all good mysteries, nothing is as it seems. Will Simon and Rowena let go of the past and finally be where they should be.
I was left wanting more. Did Simon and Rowena get married? What became of Delphine? What about the sister’s brother Victor? We can hope that at some point some of our questions will get answered. Look for book 2 of the “Rekindled Passions” series to come out in January.
I give “…Wicked Surrender” 4 1/2 stars.
