Surrender the Dawn
MaryLu Tyndall
(Barbour Publishing)
ISBN: 978-1602601673
August ,2011/320 pages/$12.99


You’ll be gasping for air in this seafaring romance by popular author and Christy Award nominee MaryLu Tyndall. Baltimore’s Cassandra Channing will do anything to provide for her family—even if it means hiring the town rogue as a privateer. Luke Heaton is a handsome rake with a tortured past who is blackmailed by the British into selling supplies to their ships just off the coast. Cassandra and Luke’s worlds collide as they are drawn into danger, secrets, romance, and war. But when the British begin to bombard Fort McHenry, how long can they protect their love—and each other?



ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
MaryLu Tyndall, a Christy Award Finalist, and best-selling author of the Legacy of the King’s Pirates series is known for her adventurous historical romances filled with deep spiritual themes. She holds a degree in Math and worked as a software engineer for fifteen years before testing the waters as a writer. MaryLu currently writes full time and makes her home on the California coast with her husband, six kids, and four cats. Her passion is to write page-turning, romantic adventures that not only entertain but open people's eyes to their God-given potential. MaryLu is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers and Romance Writers of America. Visit her website to learn more! (I have had the privilege of meeting and spending some time with MaryLu and she is a delight. I love her blog and Facebook site as well. Hop on over to say hello --- tell her I sent you!)

MY THOUGHTS:
MaryLu Tyndall swept me away once again with this final novel of her Surrender to Destiny series. Set in the tumultuous time of the War of 1812, danger lurks on land and sea. I simultaneously admired Cassandra for her gumption and wanted to lock her in her room to keep her safe! And Luke is the perfect hero. MaryLu expertly combines adventure, faith, romance, and danger into a thoroughly enjoyable read. As the story built to its climax, I could practically see the rockets' red glare as Luke and Cassandra experience the historic battle that occurred 197 years ago today, on September 13-14, 1814, at Baltimore's Fort McHenry. Don't miss this exciting historical novel!
