Unbelievable and overly dramatic...

Do yourself a favor and skip this book. Hanna was raped when she was 15 years old. Her circumstances gave her no other choice but to become a prostitute. Apparently a very good prostitute because in a few years she had saved enough money to buy the bordello and become a Madame. And this is when the story starts to get ridiculous. This experienced prostitute could give Mother Theresa a run for her money. The only reason she kept the bordello is to earn money to keep up an orphanage. She is such a good prostitute/person that her best friends are duchess. The whole story has only one very mild sex scene almost at the end. Hanna and Rafe fall in "love" at first sight yet they spend months sharing a few kisses now and then. At age 30? Oh please!! Yes our hero Rafe is a vicar but towards the end after all the morality talk he still has sex with her before marriage. Only once. The dialogue, the plot, the characters were all unrealistic, ridiculous and predictable.

The narration was ok and it's the only reason why I actually listened to the whole book but if I had know the story would be so implausible I would have saved my time and money.

Most depressing romance novel ever

What disappointed you about Intimate Surrender?

I have to admit that I was concerned when I read the prologue. Which contained not only a vicious rape by a Vicker, a brutal beating from a father then a 15 year old girl being left for dead on the side of a road. But instead it just continued along those veins for another 300 pages. If you like a book that makes you happy while reading it choose something else.
