A dark family legacy, a prodigal son returns, a young woman caught in a web of deceit, and an evil that will take great cunning to defeat. This introduction to the Granville Legacy set things in motion and I can't wait to see it all play out.

I loved this story's classical gothic romance atmosphere and the introduction to a fantastic cast of characters even the evil Earl of Litchfield who I loved to hate on. It's like a historical romantic suspense with a large cast of characters full of strength

Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

Having read and adored all of Pamela Lynne’s previously published novels (see here for proof), I was elated to learn that she was working on a traditional Regency Romance series. A series that would tell the emotional and turbulent tales of three men from the Granville family and the women who love them. As a reader who loves traditional Regency Romances and on who has great affection for Pamela Lynne’s original character, Viscount Hedley,

Recommends it for: Romance, Regency

What a brilliant start to this series! Captain Richard Granville, second son of the Earl of Litchfield has been summoned to his father's home in London after being away for two years. He is not sure what is drawing him to attend, for there is no love lost between them. However, once he sees 'her', he wonders, 'what was this angel doing in the den of the devil.'

There is a delicious cast of characters in this story and each are well developed. You are completely drawn in as Richard slowly but sure

Cliffhanger alert: for those who need to know, according to another reviewer, this book ends with a cliffhanger. It was published 4 or 5 months ago, and there is no second book yet.

The story opens pretty good, but there seems to be about three different relationships trying to blossom. I just wanted to focus on the main one, but that's not really possible.
The Book Junkie Reads . . .
I just loved this short historical read that gave me a fascinating family of males, Granville. There were moments of intrigue, suspense, wrapped in a family legacy of darkness, shame, torture, and desperation. This was a great kick off to a new family from Pamela Lynne.

Quick read

I love the era and the story. The characters were introduced too many too fast. Would have loved and extended version of Richard and Wesley's past.

Wow, packed with everything wonderful. Surrendering the Past will leave you wanting more especially since there is a cliffhanger ending. The book will be familiar to P & P JAFF fans who I think, like me, will have a hard time not substituting P & P character names for the ones used in the book. The men are swoon-worthy and Lord Litchfield is a great villian. The book reads well and quick. You won't want to put it down. My only complaints are that the print version needs to correct what I ...more

Pamela Lynne grew up in the American South, surrounded by Southern Gothic works by Faulkner, O'Connor and the like. These authors helped shape her evolving mind and continue to influence everything she produces as an adult. It was a Regency-era wit from across the Atlantic, however, who lit a life-long interest in 19th Century England.

Pamela cites Jane Austen as her primary literary influence and
