Surrender: A House of Sin Novella
(1001 Dark Nights #81)
by Elisabeth Naughton
The leaders of my House want her dead.
The men I’ve secretly aligned myself with want her punished for screwing up their coup.
I’ve been sent by both to deal with her, but one look at the feisty redhead and I’ve got plans of my own.
Before I carry out anyone else’s orders, she’s going to give me what I want. And only when I’m satisfied will I decide if she lives or dies.
Depending, of course, on just how easily she surrenders…
Surrender takes place a few years before Luciano made the ultimate changes in the House Salvatici and met his wife, Natalie James. This House of Sin novella is centered on Marco Romano and Felicity Merrick’s unexpected relationship. He’s been sent by his House to put a stop to whatever Miss Merrick was planning, but one look at her made him forget about his assignment. Before the night was done, he’d have gotten what he came for, and so much more.
Felicity and Marco must now work together to discover the secrets their Houses were keeping, but trust and assurance weren’t something Felicity was sure to give to this man who stole her breath away. She could never be too sure, especially once she learned and witnessed his double-crossing stunts.
This has been quite a short but certainly wild story that only Elisabeth Naughton could deliver. The excitement, the suspense, the ferocity of the characters and the heart-pounding romance – all these and more had contributed to making this novella (and the whole series as well) very successful and mind-blowing. I want to commend Naughton for never faltering in her drive to make sure that her readers are either left satisfied or screaming for more.
