In Lavinia Kent’s scorching new eBook original novella, two wounded hearts find that only the sweet release of temptations long denied can heal the pain of past sins.
Five years ago, Miss Sarah Swilp had been deeply in love with Jonathan Perry, the second son of an earl. But when Jonathan inherited his aunt’s lands and money, he turned cold, demanding Sarah’s maidenhood and uttering those unforgettably cruel words: “You do know I won’t marry you.” She refused, of course, and that spoiled everything. Now, just as she’s agreed to a marriage of convenience, Jonathan reappears—and after Sarah gets one look at his lean, hard body, the embers of desire burst back into flame.
Over time, Jonathan has learned quite a bit about the art of pleasure—though nothing has ever given him so much joy as the husky timbre of Sarah’s laugh. It had hurt to leave her, but what other choice did he have? Perhaps he’d been too afraid of ending up like his brother, targeted by a woman seeking a title. Seeing her again, Jonathan can’t help wondering what might have been if only Sarah had surrendered to red-hot lust. Fortunately, judging by the wicked look in her eyes, it may not be too late to find out.
Sarah’s Surrender is intended for mature audiences. Don’t miss a preview of the next novel in the Bound and Determined series, Ravishing Ruby.

About the book
Sarah Swilp is a young, beautiful girl that comes from a good and respected family. Her father has gambled away most of the fortune they had and they are on the bridge of losing even their home because of his debts. That would cause a great embarrassment to their family especially to her mother who did nothing to deserve this awful situation their father put them in. She has no other choice then to finally accept her father’s friend proposal and in that way escape this financial disaster and to keep their family in the respected eyes of the society. She hated even the idea to marry someone as old as her father and nothing feeling love nor attraction to the person, but she had to do it, nothing more to it.
Just when she said yes to her father’s friend who basically ignores her as soon as she uttered the words and treats her like she was worth nothing something happened. Someone from her past shows up that changes things for Sarah.
Her first, her only love Jonathan is back in town, after 5 years of missing in action. His family was already rich and famous beyond all means, but while he was away he got even richer. They were deeply in love and she believed with all her being that one day they would marry and live happily ever after. One night Jonathan wanted something from Sarah, a piece of her that only he would have. His demand was to have her virginity no strings attached. She would gladly give it to him when he already had her heart and soul, but then he uttered the words that broke her spirit forever. “I will never marry you Sarah” he said. And that’s how their love story came to an end. Sarah went home heartbroken and Jonathan left town the very next day without a single word.
Now when Sarah was to marry someone she didn’t love, didn’t even liked for that matter she wanted her first time to be with someone who still had her heart in his hands and awaken desire and lust in her mind and body. She suggest Jonathan that they would have one night of passion and then part ways once again. So what happens next? Do they just do it and say goodbyes? Do old flames and passion come to life again? Read this story and see how it all ends yourself 😉
My review: 3 stars
This story was intriguing from the very start and I read it in a heartbeat. For every line I read I wanted to find out how will this play out between former lovers that obviously didn’t need much to rekindle their passion. I love a good love story that gets to my heart and this one sure did just that. Even if it was set in a different time then ours today it still had some awesome sex scenes filled with passion and desire that was almost impossible to tame. We get to met a hot dominant man that knows what he wants and how to get it. A girl that is a virgin but still manages to take order like a professional.
Language was a bit different than in most of the books we read today but it was necessary to go along with the time frame of the book.
I would recommend this short story! I would have loved to read a nice epilogue as well, which I missed a little bit here.
