Talk about alle the lame shitty romance-tropes thrown into one pot. But I had to try my luck with selfpublished books again. My BS-alarm was going through the roof. The historical part is just so damn wrong and I don't understand why, since a quick -search gives you already way too much information to back up that immensely short read. The story goes as follows: She's a Native. He's an English "Gentleman". He's hurt during an ambush. she finds and cares for him, sometimes touching him cz Jesus, [...]
This was a perfect example of how people of color are still fully capable of cultural appropriation and erasure/oppression. The heroine was an Iroquois woman (actually half black through her father) who finds a British soldier injured and dying in the woods somewhere. She builds a shelter and nurses him back to health, but their sexual attraction to each other (which is handled in a hamfisted way with little chemistry between the characters) is hindered by the heroine's forced engagement to a Na [...]
Very good book! From a new to me author!, December 11, 2015By Beverly RossThis review is from: A Sweet Surrender (Kindle Edition)This was a very touching story! I will definitely be reading more of Lena's books! It pulled you in and really made me feel the emotional pull the two had for each other!
In a A Sweet Surrender Siaragowaeh of the Onyota’aka tribe finds a wounded British soldier and finds a way to heal him. James Blake finds in Siara a reason to seek a new life with her and they end up in Canada. The book is full of the problems of soldiers and the Native people that are caught in positions where they are away from their people and don't know what is happening in the battles and where they really belong and begin to question the loyalty to their home country or people. In this l [...]
A short yet heartfelt read. I enjoyed this book from the very beginning to the end. Even though it was short, the only thing I regret about this book, as I wanted to get to know more about the characters, I fell in love with them both. I also loved the plot of the forbidden love between a British soldier and a African-Native-American mix.
Good story!A bit brief, I felt they fell in love really quick, but all together a lovely story about the losing side of the American Revolution. A much different approach and interesting plot. Good read.
Short but goodSaw this on BookBub and since it was free, didn't think it would hurt to check it out. Be warned that the story is surprisingly short, but it's pretty good. Would love to have read more about these two.
This was an interesting book dealing with the issue of prejudices in the time of the wars, and how a multiracial couple defied the times. You will get some history and romance in this book.** I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review**
ReviewIt was super short. I liked the premise, but wish it could be longer and the characters more developed. It seemed rushed.
Very short but solid read, and a good introduction to the Hearts at War series.
The African ancestry of the heroine is an unexpected treat. Not good on consent, though that's historically accurate.
Compassion to LoveThank you for your heartwarming story about Siara and James and the difficulties they had to endure. I look forward to reading more of your work.
A Love storyI loved this story. I look forward to reading more of her books. I recommend everyone to read this book. Kattie.
A good romance read.
Back from the deadAn interesting sad, but information love story, leaving behind your homeland and not ever g giving up your hopes. Written well, great ending
It is a great book to read
I really liked this short book (72 pages), it was great almost to the end the end the only snag was the future of these awesome characters not really being spelled out for me (I love totally happy endings with not much doubt about the future for the characters left). It did tell me what the characters planned in broad terms and the decision that home was (spoiler here) where they were together, but I'm just the kind of reader that loves to know that they found happiness and not more turmoil afte [...]
I enjoyed reading this short historical romance and found the author wrote creatively and the characters were well done as well. As this is only a story and not a fact book on history, the story read well and was an example of what life could have been like at that period in history."Leaning down, he kissed her again, reigniting the gut-wrenching desire that tugged with in her.""She was sweetness and goodness- and had literally saved his life.""As stupid and dangerous as it was, he found her nai [...]
I received this book as part of a Firstreads promotion. A sweet Surrender by Lena Heart is short but sweet. It is about a British soldier named James who is injured in a skirmish. He is found and nursed back to health by Native American Siaragowaeh. While he is unconscious, Siaragowaeh starts to fall in love with James. Unknown to her, he regains consciousness (but doesn't let on right away) and starts to fall in love with her. Siaragowaeh is supposed to marry another, so she must choose wisely [...]
I received this book from a contest. It's less than 100 pages (Historical Romance). It's a quick read book that I enjoyed very much. A most unlikely pair, but just never know where you'll find love.
It's a quick sweet read.
Sweet Love StoryThis short, sweet story takes place in the Revolutionary War era. Two different cultures come together during war time and find love.
Sweet historical romance storyA quick delightful read. Would have liked an epilogue but the story was still a good one. A good book to read while doing laundry.
