The Earl's Complete Surrender by Sophie Barnes
Publisher: Avon (Dec 2015)
Series: Secrets at Thorncliff Manor, 2 
Genre: Historical 


An unexpected passion ignites as secrets are exposed in Sophie Barnes's captivating Regency-set romance...

Despite the diversions offered at Thorncliff Manor, former spy James, the Earl of Woodford, has one purpose in staying there. He must find an encoded book that exposes a conspiracy within the British aristocracy. And he must do so without revealing his purpose to the clever, tempting Chloe Heartly. The lady has a knack for appearing wherever it is least convenient. In the library. In the salon. And, especially, in his arms...

Somewhere within Thorncliff's labyrinth of rooms lies the journal Chloe desperately seeks. When she realizes the brooding, handsome earl is hunting the same quarry, Chloe enters into an uneasy partnership. But in the face of public danger and enemies hiding in plain sight, both must decide how much they're willing to risk to solve the mysteries of the heart.

It's pretty, case close. Plus, the guy with his shirt partial off is pretty nice too. Overall, I like it all the cover, title, and the blurb is intriguing. So, what do you guys think of my choice?


  1. Love the pop of color from her blue dress. Hope you had a lovely Sunday! :)

  2. I know. I think that's what drew me into the cover. However, I must say this I think it's the same cover model for Julie Anne Long for It Happen on a Scandal. Tell me if you don't agree Lusting for Covers (42): It Started with a Scandal by Julie Anne Long

  3. Looks perfect for the summer - and that woman indeed is going to make him surrender ;) Plus a conspiracy, that looks good !

  4. oh, yeah! great cover [and blurb]

  5. They do look alike, don't they? Chances are you're right. :)

  6. I love the color pops in that one and the background image. I always like when they do that and it's not just some random purple drape or something. And it's Sophie. Love her books :D

  7. It looks interesting with the castle in the background. I also like that the heroine is actually holding the hero since it is usually the reverse on historical covers. And, of course, it is a beautiful dress!

  8. I think that drew me to the cover was the heroine's pose, so different.

  9. I haven't read any of her books yet. They are on my kindle. I need to pop one open.

  10. I know, isn't it. I would totally by this book because of the cover and blurb

  11. Totally. It will be a lovely cover to look at when the winter months come along.
