After a childhood spent moving from army base to army base, independent-minded Nettie Brooms is determined to secure a stable life - and never become involved with a military man. Then she meets incredibly handsome and charming Ashton Sinclair, a dedicated colonel in the U.S. Marines who's intent on capturing her heart - no matter what it takes. Now Nettie's wondering how a man she swore she would avoid could so easily test her resolve by igniting an irresistible passion she can't walk away from.

The characters and the plot of the story were so life-like. It was just enough suspense mixed into the romance. Terrific ending.
I'm a huge fan of Audible. As a school librarian, I've found that it passes my days and nights.
This book was just okay to me. I'm a Jackson fan, but this one was sort of unrealistic. The narrator was as expected... Not my favorite.
The phrase "lifted/raised a brow" occurred 44 times in the book. 44 times. Yes, I counted when it started getting comical. We get it. Many unbelievable things created high eyebrows. Maybe if I he story was actually believable....
Yes. I'm done with Brenda Jackson. Why do all of the characters have multiple names? Too confusing to keep the extraneous characters straight. Also, the overlapping stories were majorly unbelievable.
Where do I start? The volume was all over the place. The whispered parts were unintelligible so I turned up the volume only to be blasted out unexpectedly. Was that a narrator problem or audio engineer issue? Truly a problem. Also, why did Sinclair's character have such a halting, creepy cadence? No one else did. Was it to make him sound "ethic?" Wrong on so many levels. Not my favorite narrator.
Kidnapping scene to Oklahoma reservation was too strange and did not suit the characters at all. Why couldn't all that have happened on the planned trip to New Orleans? The book needed a serious editor to be the voice of reason and to cut the fluff. Seriously. Some characters have five names. Give me a break.
This is Brenda Jackson at her finest,
When Nettie surrendered her love to Ashton.
All of them were awesome.
I have read hundreds of romance novels and this one,along with some of Brenda Jackson's other books,is in my top ten all time favorite romance books.
If you want to read about REAL Romance, Love and Honorable and Protective Men you must read Brenda Jackson Books. Especially Surrender and Thorns Challenge, both are my all time favorites. I have both in audible and paperback.
I wasn't to happy with the performance in Surrender but the Story makes up for the narrator's short coming.
Keep them coming Mrs. Jackson!!
Ashton of course was my favorite. He's sexy, strong, protective and loves his woman unconditionally
What's not to love. A strong minded man who went after what he wants a nettie was it.
Deep not bad to listen to
I had a lot of awwww moments.
Loved the story. Loved it when I read it and loved it more listening to it. The narrator did an awesome job reading the story. Mesmerizing!
I read the book years ago but recently became aware of the audio book and have thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It's like falling in love with the characters all over again.
The narrator's ability to smoothly transaction between characters is commendable. It's smooth as silk and I envisioned him as Ashton Sinclair melting the hearts of every reader.
