Absolute Surrender by Jenn LeBlanc

Happiness was always too much for Lady Amelia to hope for.

Now all she expects is to secure her future and marry Charles, Duke of Castleberry, as arranged. But Amelia has a dangerous secret that could not only destroy her in Charles's eyes and the eyes of society, but could also very well condemn her to Bedlam.

Baron Endsleigh, Amelia’s oldest friend, has other ideas. Ender has loved Amelia all his life. He knows her secrets, and they don’t frighten him. He plans to come between Amelia and Charles in any way he can to prevent the marriage and finally claim Amelia for his own. Though her father forbade the match years ago, Ender is determined to have her as his wife and nothing can stop him. Not even a duke as powerful as Castleberry.

That duke has hated Baron Endsleigh and wanted Amelia for, what seems to him, forever. Charles will stop at nothing to make her his, and his alone, even if that means destroying the one thing he knows she loves most in this world—Endsleigh.

Will Amelia be able to choose when one man speaks to her head and the other her heart?

None of them will find happiness until they all three learn to embrace absolute surrender.

My review:

Historical romance with several twists.  First this is an “Illustrated Romance” meaning there are pictures.  I can’t remember the last time I read anything with pictures.  These pictures were tastefully done and spot on the characters.  I liked it in this instance probably because the author took the photos and knew what her characters would look like and do.  Second this historical is light ménage.  Accidental touching between the men but that is all.  Mostly it is about the love of a woman.  Amelia has issues.  In today’s culture we would probably say she has panic attacks or something but in her period she was one step out of the looney bin.  Between the two men vying for her love she is whole but take one out of the equation and she is shaky.  Normal isn’t always the answer. This was an intriguing tale that I heartily recommend.
