Publisher's Description

Relive the rich history of the War of 1812 through the eyes of Marianne Denton and Noah Brenin, who both long to please their families but neither one wishes to marry the other. Noah is determined to get his cargo to England before war breaks out, and Marianne is equally determined to have a wedding so that her inheritance can be unlocked and her destitute family saved. When their stubborn games get them captured by a British warship, can they escape and bring liberty to their country—and growing love?

Editorial Reviews

A new historical series, Surrender to Destiny, centers around the War of 1812. Tyndall brings new life to the old story of finding romance during war. Her characters are courageous, smart and believe in what they are fighting for.

Page by page and chapter by chapter MaryLu takes you on an adventure rocked by the waves of the sea.
 From the snuggles of Seafoam the cat, to the pressure of the darkness in the cabins to the verbiage and the practical pirates at sea -- I love every bit of it!  Each story from MaryLu brings me dying for more!  I'm desperately impatient in awaiting the next novel and more.  This is a story to get in your heart.  It will entertain you and educate you, cause you to look into yourself and grow spiritually as well as sigh in romantic bliss.  It has it all.

For the best in historical romance, commit to memory the name MaryLu Tyndall.  SURRENDER THE HEART is just one of the many novels this wonderful author has written.  With each new book I discover of hers I can rest assured she will provide me the utmost reading pleasure.  This talented author puts a new spin on swashbuckling romance with her own unique style.  You definitely will find yourself rewarded when you take the time to read any one of her novels

I love historical fiction and "Surrender the Heart" captures the brink of the war of 1812 wonderfully. The novel feels realistic to the time period although it is fiction. I could easily imagine most of the events that transpired. I would recommend this book to other readers, particularly those who have an interest in romance, Christian fiction or historical fiction. I look forward to reading the remainder of this series.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and I had no desire to put it down. Ms. Tyndall has the ability to make you feel as though you were actually there in the thick of things by her spellbinding imagery. I look forward to reading more of her works, and highly recommend it to those who love historical fiction.

    MaryLu has continued to please readers with this new novel. It is so enthralling that you will not want to put it down. I have lost many a night's sleep while reading this book, but it was totally worth it. If you haven't read MaryLu's other novels, you need to give them a try. You will not be disappointed, they are all very well written. So, what are you waiting for? Go on an adventure!

    This review was written for Surrender the Heart - eBook.
    I was indeed enjoying reading this book up until page 103, where the author decided to use God's name in vain. It just escapes me how a christian author would do this in her book. I wish there was a warning for me so I would not have thrown my money away on a book I ended up deleting from my ebook library. The author is a talented writer and this book would have been just fine without cursing in it. If the author is going to continue to do this I will no longer purchase her books.

    I loved this book! MaryLu is one of my favorite authors! There is never a dull moment! This book is a great combination of romance and adventure.

    It really gets scary for a little while. You don't know what will happen next. I really liked that Marianne and Noah didn't like each other and they slowly softened to one another and realized their perceptions of one another were not quite right.

    This book made me really think about what it would be like to be right there on a boat with the enemy and what would I do. This is one I will read again!

    Terrific Historical Romance

    "Surrender the Heart", the first novel in the Surrendered to Destiny Series, is a wild, page-turning adventure from the first turn of phrase. Mary Lu Tyndall creates vibrant characters that set sail on sparkling seas and into the hearts of her audience. Marianne Denton is not your typical wealthy American girl. She is being forced to marry Noah Brenin to unlock her inheritance so that her mother may receive much-needed medical care.

    Noah's circumstances aren't much better. He lives in the shadow of a brother's death and a father's resentment. His only desire is to make a name for himself and be Captain of his own destiny. Presently, he will have to settle for being Captain of his father's merchant ship, Fortune. But Noah has plans to win respect and his lady's heart.

    Are the lessons about surrendering to God for the characters, alone? Or can the reader learn a thing or two about deepening their relationship with God? Personally, I believe this novel not only entertains but also conveys godly life lessons portrayed so vividly that they cannot be ignored.

    Surrender the Heart is the first book in the Surrender to Destiny series.

    Marianne Denton is desperate to support her ill mother and little sister, and has decided to marry Noah, whom she despises, to get her inheritance. Noah is marrying Marianne to please his father, though he is doing everything in his power to get her to break off the engagement.

    Marianne and Noah are captured by the British, delaying both of their plans, and they must stick together and spend more time with each other than they'd wanted.

    I liked this book, it didn't have as nice a flow as some of her other books, but it was highly entertaining and very sweet. It was actually my least favorite in the series.
