The first in her Section 8 trilogy about military men on dangerous, secret assignments, Surrender is brimming over with intrigue, heroics and plenty of action. Tyler provides a realistic look at the extreme conditions her complex characters endure to satisfy their mission. Add some hot romance, and you’ve got another winner.

Former Navy SEAL Dare O’Rourke knows about secrets and off-the-books international missions. His father was a member of Section 8 and has been classified as missing since Dare was a boy. Suddenly, the handler of Section 8 has given orders to kill any remaining members and their families, leading him to a shocking discovery: He has a half-sister he never knew about, Avery. Determined to keep her alive and find their father, Dare will do anything it takes to survive. When Dare’s mission brings him to Grace, he knows she will be his undoing, but his instant, overwhelming attraction to her won’t get in the way of his goals. (SIGNET ECLIPSE, Apr., 400 pp., $7.99)

LITERAL ADDICTION's Review of Surrender

Submitted by MichelleLOlson on April 1, 2013 - 12:00pm.

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Michelle L. Olson:

Well, I'm no longer a Romantic Suspense virgin, and I am so, SO happy that I chose Surrender to be my first - the book was amazing!! ;-)

SECTION 8 is a spin-off of Stephanie's other Romantic Suspense series, but Surrender can easily be read as a stand-alone. There is plenty of back-story provided when needed to make the book flow smoothly, but a word of warning... when you finish Surrender you're going to want to go back and read everything Stephanie has ever written. :)

The book is chock full of suspense, mystery, intrigue, action and romance, and is written so superbly you will be turning pages frantically and swearing under your breath when you're forced to take a break.

Our team of characters - Dare, Grace, Jem, Key, Gunner and Avery are brought together to solve the mystery behind the deaths and disappearances of their loved ones and just make it out the other side alive. Their alliance isn't an easy one, however. Each has their secrets, and there is a lot of mistrust given the covert nature of Section 8 and what's been happening. The uneasy alliance makes for some wicked tension (both romantic and otherwise) and creates an amazing romantic suspense!

The plot twists were wonderful; Stephanie had me shaking my head on several occasions and kept my heart rate up through the majority of the book, and while I'd love to tell you more, I don't do spoilers so you're just going to have to go and check it out for yourself!

There was plenty of set up for the upcoming books in the series as well and I can't wait to see what will happen.

LITERAL ADDICTION gives Surrender 4 1/2 Skulls and HIGHLY recommends it!
