Cocky. No word better described Solomon. He projected the playboy image, but only he knew the truth. Deep inside, he wanted what his brother and friends had—a mate.

Fifteen hundred years was a long time to be alone. Solomon’s pure vampire bloodline and family name made him desirable, but that didn’t take away the loneliness.

Lilah was fiercely independent and distrusting of

Solomon may seem like he's hard to deal with, but he's loyal to those he cares about. The only thing that doesn't seem to be a possibility for him is finding his mate. He's convinced he's meant to be the playboy he pretends to be until he meets Lilah. Lilah is dead set against finding her mate. She'd prefer to be alone over the possibility of anybody leaving her. To keep from finding her mate, she refuses to touch anybody.

I've been waiting for this book! While it didn't fully meet my expectation

Lilah has no interest in love or finding her mate as she witnessed first hand what happens when one mate loses another and she doesn’t want to have to endure that pain herself. She is part cheetah shifter and part fae who won’t back down from anyone or anything. She has found a home working at the bar that her bear shifter best friend Don owns, and she was content with her life until Sol entered the bar and her life and refuses to leave.

Sol is a vampire from a powerful family who would be happy

These stories just get better and better, connections to the characters, the side characters, bring you right into the story. I must have skipped a story of Ky’s since I last read was Ford’s story so there is some new developments I missed out with since then. I’ll have to get Kyla and reread Solomon’s story again to fill in the missing pieces.

I enjoyed this paranormal story. It's a good addition to the "Avynwood" stories. This is a fun fast paced story that is also very intriguing with mystery and suspense. The characters are strong and likable. Love Lilah and Soloman! Great chemistry between them. I love the twists and turns in their story.

Omg I’ve been waiting for Solomon’s story and of course I was t disappointed at all. Solomon has finally found his match in Lilah but she wants nothing too do with him. I love how protected Sol was with Lilah and of course when they finally got together it was absolutely perfection. I absolutely love this series and every character and I can’t wait too read more. Another amazing 5 star read that will have you glued too your kindle.

I voluntarily reviewed this Advanced Reader Copy of this book.

Eek!! I wanted to dance along to Ren & Stimpy’s song Happy Happy Joy Joy when I saw Solomon’s story was the next one who’s story was being told!!

Lilah s a young cougar shifter. But, she’s not your typical shifter. She’s half cougar, half fae and she’s a loner. It was just her and her dad after her mom passed away. When her fae side came her dad abandoned her. Her closest friend Don, a bear shifter who owns the bar she works at.

I almost forgot how much I missed Solomon. I couldn’t wait for his book to arrive. I knew I would love it, but I was afraid it would be the end of the series, and I didn’t want that! Solomon is a fifteen hundred year vampire in a twenty-five-year-old body. He’s handsome, funny, and cocky; he does kind of have the right to be, he is a Verascue after all. While he has the playboy image, and it works for him, he really wants a mate, he just hasn’t found the one yet… until he goes into a bar and mee ...more
Payne’s Bookworm Reviews (Samantha Payne)
You know a book is going to be good when the dedication is to the characters from the book rather than real life people. 😂

Ford insisted this book be dedicated to him and him alone. His reasoning was that without him, Sol wouldn’t have been a part of my Avynwood world. Sol, however, said that was ridiculous. So, the book is dedicated to both of them. For without them, this world I created would be a lot less interesting.

I just love, love, love the world that Michelle Dare has created with this c

The Avynwood Series just keeps getting better and better with the spin offs that accompany it. During the Ariane Trilogy, we get introduced to Solomon Verascue, who’s Ford Verascue’s brother. Both are extremely hot in their own way of course and I can’t help but to love them both equally now after reading this. Solomon’s playboy side is fun and full of entertainment, but I got to see the softer, tamer side to him in this book and it was fan-freaking-tastic.

Solomon has been waiting to find his mate, he doesn't know if it will happen. He is at loose ends with everyone he knows being mated. He can't keep bothering his brother. He goes to into the bar for a little action. His eyes are drawn to the female at the bar. He is instantly attracted to her, even more powerfully when he goes and speaks to her.
Lilah is helping her friend run his bar when he has a family emergency. She is working the bar when Solomon walks in. She doesn't want a mate or anythin

I thoroughly enjoy diving into the world created by Michelle Dare once again. In this newest installment, I saw and appreciated a different side to her world. Previously, Solomon seems happy to keep to himself and watch the others live life for the most part and hiding his true emotions behind his shenanigans. The tone of this read may seem a bit more subdued, in some parts, do not fret, all of the author’s outstanding humor is still there and our favorite characters make their appearances, when ...more

This was my first book in this series and I liked the different presentation of the paranormals. Sol and his brother actually watched out for the safety of humans, not as an expectation, but because it mattered to them. That was a very nice, unique touch to introducing us to their world.

Solomon Verascue himself was an unmated playboy by reputation. But with everyone around him finding their mate, he wanted to find that special someone for himself too. When he wanders inside Grizzly Don’s Tavern

He's mine! Sol is mine!

Michelle Dare does it again. Solomon's Surrender brings to life everyone's favorite PITA. You can try and deny it but Solomon is the plucky comic relief in this cast of ever expanding paranormals.Its safe o say he has always been my favorite.

Solomon finally...FINALLY gets his mate! I know I'm making a big deal out of this but he isn't exactly a spring chicken. This "distinguished " vampire has 1500 years under his belt. A long time to be lonely...

As to be expected with Sol

Michelle Dare has done it again. Throughout her paranormal series she has dangled Solomon, Ford's brother, like a carrot before her readers. She's finally delivered Sol's story and it is so good. Sol has been a fierce ally, a devoted brother, and a real pain in the tuckus in the Avywood series, so his fated mate is going to be just as hard to wrangle as he is. Lilah comes with a tragic backstory and though she is much younger than Sol, she is mature beyond her years. Enter one cocky vampire into ...more

Once again Michelle Dare brings an incredible addition to the Avynwood Series! I fell in love with all these characters back in the Ariane Trilogy and I have to say I have yet to be disappointed by any book in this spin off. Solomon is a character I grew to love a whole lot through previous books and it’s an understatement to say I was excited to finally see this playboy meet his match.
What I wasn’t expecting was the softer, sweeter side that resides within him. There is definitely a whole lot

Another great book in the Paranormals of Avynwood series. Solomons surrender can be read as a standalone but the story is tied to the other books in the paranormals of Avywoods series and Aryanne trilogy.

This time is Solomon turn to find is mate. Hes a Fifteen hundred years old vampire and thats a lot of time when you're alone. Hes from a pureblood family line and the Versacues are a really well know family but that doesnt take away the feeling of beeing lonely. Until he meets Lilah, a beautiful

The eagerly awaited book for Solomon was an interesting mix of fun, danger and surprises. Solomon is always portrayed as a "goof", not really serious ever, very snarky and thinks he is all that and a bag of chips. Ms. Dare has completed a difficult feet by showing us what lurks behind his cocky attitude. Living for as long as he has is sure to be lonely, meeting Lilah ( Connie) came out of the blue and sends him on an interesting quest to find out why the female intrigues him so much.

Solomon's Surrender (Paranormals of Avynwood, Book 4) is the next installment in this electrifying series. I absolutely loved Solomon's and Lilith's romance. Just when you think you have your favourite, the next audio just gets better. I love this pie-in-the-sky cosmo that this author created with diverse supernaturals paranormals.

Another great addition to the Paranormals of Avynwood series!

We've met Solomon in previous books, he's sexy, he's funny, he's very cocky! We believe he'll never fall in love or get a mate and he's fine with that....or is he? He meets up with Lilah, a woman who will test his attitude, his patience and his view of ever finding/wanting a mate.

Lilah works at Donovan's bar. They are best friends and she loves him so much. However, he definitely is not her mate. While working one day this gorgeous ma

I am LOVING this book! Soloman has been a favorite of mine since he showed up...well Ford was first but then Soloman was so prominent in his book that he became my new fav. He is an antagonist and cocky which make for the fun parts of the book. He also is very protective with anyone he loves or is family.

Soloman cracks me up! I really love his attitude and demeanor. Troy Duran does an amazing job becoming playful, sarcastic or sexy Soloman. I could listen to him all day!

Everyone in Avynwood has a mate; everyone except Solomon. Even Ford, his younger brother, has one and he can’t wait to find his own. Is that fate in the cards for him?

I loved Lilah and her no-nonsense ways. I loved the way she stood up against Solomon’s mother and didn’t allow anyone to talk down to her. Solomon was sarcastic and funny. He can get annoying and often did, but he was loyal and willing to put his life on the line for those he cared about. He and Lilah were a perfect match.

Wow. What a great book and characters. Even though I am late coming into the series with Sol and Lilah's story that just means I have lots of earlier books to enjoy. Even though this book is a part of a series it contains lots of focus on just our H and h as they discover each other and work through their various issues with being mates. I like all the internal dialogue so we can see what each are thinking even if what they say doesn't scratch the surface. You get plenty of both of snark, depth ...more

Sol is just wanting what everyone around him has his mate. He meets Lilah a bartender at a local bear shifters tavern.

One of my absolute favourite genres are Paranormal Romance so I was really looking forward to listening to Solomon's Surrender.With a well-developed plot that held my interest throughout and great characters that I wanted to know more about; this story delivered on all fronts.

In hindsight I wish I had listened to previous books in this series before I listened to this one. This does work as a standalone, but I also felt I was missing out.

Book, so amazing, there no words that can do the book the justice that it deserves.

This is book four and the first three books must be read before this one as the characters and story cross over from one book to the next, but I promise they are all worth the read.

This book is filled with vampires, fae's and shifters, but the story is for Solomon and Lilah, he is vampire royalty and she is part shifter part fae, and their worlds collide one day when Solomon walks into the bar she is

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!! Solomon and his cocky personality has been a favorite of mine in all of the Avynwood books. Solomon finally gets his HEA. Once he lays his eyes on Lilah, he knows she's different. Lilah doesn't need a mate. She's independent and can take care of herself. Working at her best friend's bar, a paranormal walks in and his cockiness drives her crazy.

Solomon's Surrender is book four in the Paranormals of Avynwood series. The storyline is what I've come to expect from Michelle Dare, action-packed and emotionally charged. Solomon infuses all his encounters with equal parts swagger and humor as expected and perusing his mate Lilah/Connie is equally as entertaining. The mystery and suspense surrounding her drive the story. The old friends and family eager to lend a hand make this an even more enjoyable and interesting read. Fans of the series ar ...more
