Leah McMahon heads back to her hometown, Sultry Springs, to help her father recover after surgery. After 10 years of being gone, things have changed not only for Leah, but also her family and friends. Being in a small town, everyone knows that Leah is back and people are wondering why she stayed away for so long. It didn't take long for the gossip mill to start and everyone dropping by her father's house to wish him well and try to get some details on her disappearing act. Personally, I love books that have small towns as the setting. It makes the character's story flow easier since most of the characters have known each other since childhood and makes it more believable.

Colton Bea (aka Colt) is the sheriff of Sultry Springs. Colt has never gotten over the one that got away. Much to his surprise, he pulls someone over and only to see his high school sweetheart (Leah) behind the wheel. They get a second chance, if only they can trust one another. My main concern while reading was if Leah would be able to share whatever she was hiding and if Colt could handle it. Colt seems to be the tall, dark and charming guy that most women fantasize after. I enjoyed watching his character grow as the book went on. It started with a little bit of past information of his rebellious youth, versus what he is now, a dependable though sometimes cranky town sheriff.

Surrender to Sultry is a engaging read with characters that will have you coming back for more. The characters seemed real, and by the end I felt like they were old friends. I really enjoyed this book and will definitely be buying the other 2 in the series. If you're looking for a rainy day read that has a sheriff and small town this is your book. Just a warning, if you're anything like me you won't be able to put it down until you're finished.

  2. I adore old school romances like this. Not all heroes should be tortured jerks, they just have to be men!
