4.5 Star review of Surrender To Love (The Royal Heirs #3) by Lizabeth Scott
Lizabeth Scott is a new author to me and I am surprised that I have not come across her before. This was an entertaining read that had me hooked from the first to the last chapter.
This was a story with plenty of action, suspense and romance and at times I was on the edge of my seat. Navy SEAL and Special Ops Major Anthony Garrison has been Princess Shayla’s bodyguard for years and during that time he has fought the attr

Ms. Scott continues to surprise me. The way she weaves her words together is a gift to her readers. This story is so much more.  It's a story of healing. Healing of the mind, the body and the spirit.

Warning: there are triggers, please read with caution. However, during Shayla's ordeal, Ms. Scott beautifully draws focus to Shayla's strength, hope and determination to survive. This allows for the reader to connect with Shayla's will and not draw too much attention on her captors.

Strength of character, passion of heart and more courage than I ever would have dreamed. Shayla and Anthony are an overpowering piece of magic. Scott celebrates the power of the human spirit with a captivating ode to love. Surrender to Love is a tale of heroes and heartache that steals the heart right out of your chest. A beautiful tragedy engulfed by an empowering romance and an unforgettable storyteller. A total work of art.

Wow.....Lizabeth pulled out all the stops on this one! After reading Shay and Ant’s story, the back scene and the ending, this has definitely made its way to the top of my favorite Lizabeth Scott books!
From beginning to the very last word I was mesmerized, hooked and emotional. Wherever that comes from, Liz, keep it going!
Again, if there was a 10 star rating, it would get a 15......loved this book!

Surrender to Love came out of the gate with a big bang, as Princess Shayla is piloting a plane that has to take an emergency landing, and while she & Major Anthony Garrison, her friend & secret love, are trying to find help, she gets taken and it's so bad. She was abused, starved, raped, and not allowed any clothes while they walked miles with her tied up for months, and she was such a strong woman during it. She finally had enough, and had become very sick when she's finally rescued, but there ...more

I absolutely loved reading Shayla’s story. This was an insta attraction work environment sort of romance. It’s completely different to the other books in the series in the best possible way. When Shayla first meets Ant these two have chemistry but Anthony or Ant as Shayla calls him holds a secret which he keeps to himself. When a job goes horribly wrong and truths are told shayla pushes Ant away even though her feelings for him remain. Her family keeps worrying and ask Ant for his help because h ...more

You know when you read a book series, you become invested in the characters. So much so that when one of these characters suffers a life-changing event, we feel it to our core. In Surrender To Love, that's exactly what happens to Princess Shayla SuMatra and as a reader of this series who has grown to love these characters, her suffering during her kidnapping is difficult to read sometimes. But, Shayla is strong and a warrior. With the help of her co-pilot and romantic interest, Anthony Garrison, ...more

This was an incredibly moving story to write. I went into the story thinking it would go one way. I mean Shay is a wacky fun loving princess. Just like her mother she didn't fit into the normal princess box. In fact she delighted in smashing the box and tossing it out.
I was a bit worried how my readers would accept Shay being captured and going through all the hardships she had to endure to get to her HEA. The responses from readers touched by her story have warmed my heart.
Thank you for loving

Shay is fierce, independent and unprincesslike! From word one, Liz Scott pulled me in with her descriptive characterization and story telling. This is my favorite of all of hers I've read. So many twists and turns. You can read the larger series, and should, but this story will hook you,if you aren't already, on the series. ...more

Omg! The emotions in this book are so high that you just want to cry. Lizabeth out did herself with this book. If you lived the previous ones then you will love this one more.

Shayla and Anthony's story took a toll on my emotions with the best results at the end.

Bravo Lizabeth Scott on another fabulous book!!!

Royals and romantic suspense? Yes please. That was exactly why I made Surrender to Love my first read from Lizabeth Scott.

I liked the witty, fun and easy banter between Ant and Shayla. Their friendship was clear but what wasn't so clear to them was the feelings they were both harboring for one another. But all of that was short lived when a standard mission takes a tragic turn. My heart was in my throat the whole time reading what was happening. And even more so after things were 'resolved'.

I absolutely loved reading Shayla and Anthony's story. Lizabeth Scott writes novels that just draw you in from start to finish making it impossible to put down even for a moment. Liz has a way of bringing her stories to life in a way that leaves you smiling and laughing through all the good and crying through the tough moments. I love the playful banter and strong connection between Shay and Ant.

Shayla shows incredible strength after going through a traumatic experience. She doesn't realize the

Lizabeth Scott has another winner in the Royal Heirs series! This one is the most intense and emotional one so far involving the Princess Shayla. The story starts with the spirited Shayla piloting a cargo plane that is forced to make a crash landing in hostile territory. While escaping with her co-pilot Lieutenant Anthony Garrison they are attacked and Ant is shot, left for dead while Shayla is taken captive Miraculously he survives and leads the rescue effort months later after she’s finally lo ...more

I shy away from any story involving military or any other type of government agency it's just not my jam but with that said I could not resist the allure of this beautiful little gem it was page after page of intrigue, passion, vivid details, and dynamic characters that are so relatable you can't help but become emotionally attached to them and what they're going through I had to force myself to slow down while reading just so I could fully absorb the chemistry between these two and prolong the ...more

Wow, this book had everything I wanted in a book. I couldn't put book down once started.

I loved Anthony and Shayla together, Anthony might of met Shayla under lies. But when it all comes out. Anthony has to fight to be there for Shayla, but they finally find their way to each other.

I can't wait for more of this series. I highly recommend this book.

The third in the series, Princess Shayla is serving in the military and has been partnered with Major Anthony Garrison. Lizabeth surprised me with this one, the beginning is nail biting. The story is full of emotional highs and lows. As always though, Lizabeth gives us it’s a story of how love heals. You really need to read this book, with tissues (you’ve been warned)

Great Emotional Read

The journey for Shayla and Anthony has many highs and lows! Liz Scott tackles some very emotional moments in their journey! Their HEA is perfect! Hope we get to see more of them in other books!

I love how Shayla has to face her demons. She has to dig deep within her soul to learn to live again. I'm so glad she has Ant to help her. This book has helped me face some of my demons.

Wow! This Story Will Blow You Away!

Talk about the unexpected...this story is certainly that. Honestly, still trying to digest it myself. Frankly, this isn't an easy read so be warned. There is love and a happy ending, but it takes a while to get there.

Princess Shayla skips to the beat of a different drummer. 4 years in the military seems uncharacteristic of a princess but not for Shayla. Anthony is her copilot and they have the hots for each other but they never do anything about it. Bad people, horrible accidents and changed lives turn their worlds upside down. From the outside looking in everything should be getting better and in some ways it is and then again it’s not. Twists, turns and love make this a great read.
