Too Similar to REBEL, the 3rd in the Series

This is the 4th in Graham's 19th century Old Florida's McKenzies series--romances that tell the stories of the men and women who shaped a great state. Graham takes care to give us the history of the times (it's her home state after all!) as she weaves tales of love in the Eden that was early Florida.

Like the 3rd in the series (Rebel), Surrender takes place during the Civil War and follows closely on the heels of Rebel. This is the story of James and Tee
Ok, so this is one review for the whole saga.

The saga begins during the second Seminole war and ends at the end of the secession war. The first two books are about Jarrett (white american) and James his half brother who is half white (same father)/half Seminole. The four following books are focused on their children.

The McKenzies are a close knit family. Then secession war happens and though they are all staunchly against slavery they find themselves politically divided.

Heather Graham has a re

This is the 4th story in the MacKenzie series. This story is about Jerome and Risa. It takes place during the civil war period and has great familyl strength.
4.7 on a 5.0 scale.

Amazing story, not about the Civil War, but of the people North and South that had to deal with it.

This was my favorite book so far of the Florida Civil War series, of course, I have two more to go.

This again follows the MacKenzie family. Jerome is the oldest son of James MacKenzi and he is a Rebel Captain of the ship The Lady Varina. Risa is Ian MacKenzie's ex-fiancee, Jerome's cousin. Risa risks her life to cross enemy lines into Florida to save Ian and his wife Alaina. She is abducted by Jerome and taken aboard his ship because he fears if he lets her go, she will tell the South's secrets
Another great McKenzie saga Heather Graham's really enthralls you with a scorching romance, and a firm historical novel.

A Yankee colonel's daughter Risa Magee was trying to rescue a friend Alaina known as "Mocassin" with a bounty on her head. So, Risa travels South to informed Alaina to stop spying or she'll get hanged. While down the river in the Confederate Peninsula she encountered one of the Naval Rebel Captain Jerome Mckenzie a cousin of his ex-fiancee Ian McKenzie who now married to Alaina

Risa Magee was in love with Ian McKenzie and he love her to but he had to married another, he was fighting for the north and his wife is a spy for the south. The north is hunting her down know know her true identity. She sets off to inform Ian that the one he seeks is his own wife. Suddenly, she was the prisoner of a man with rippling bronze muscles, sensual lips, and plundering kisses.

Nothing in his years of battle could have prepared Rebel sea captain Jerome McKenzie for the desire that ignite

Part of the McKenzie series, this book was a quick read and very enjoyable. Heather Graham is one of my favorite romance authors. I especially enjoy her historical romances. Set during the Civil War with our hero and lady on separate sides, but with a mounting attraction they cannot deny, the story is timeless. The hero of this tale is Jerome McKenzie, part Indian naval commander for the Rebel forces. He is everything you would want a southern gentleman with savage roots to be. But alas, he is n ...more

I am enjoying this series. The McKenzie men are good at making love first, then realizing that the lady in question was a virgin. Yet, the women are willing. Who wouldn't be?
