Vanessa accidentally came across Nick and Oliver, trying to seduce a young woman in the hall.  Both men pursued her after they realized she caught them and Vanessa fell in love with them. 

The latest installment of the Brothers In Arms series, Love’s Surrender, was not as emotionally catching as the others.  It started a little slow for me, but picked up the pace toward the end.  The author brought out a lot of the expectations faced by those families with titles.  The author did a good job showing that, especially at the end when Vanessa had to make a choice. 

The scene between the three is hot.  A lot of emotions were shown.  The secondary characters from the previous books were mentioned and the societal mores explored.  I had to admire the young man Vanessa’s father brought home for her to marry.  I actually felt sorry for him, especially after he talked with Vanessa.  I found the ending of this book interesting because of the way proposals seem to be carried out.  One thing that was clear was the dowry of a woman when she got married.  The father placed conditions on it, which Nick had to meet before he would actually give permission.   

I have enjoyed this series.  While some stories can be read by themselves, the reader will get much more enjoyments reading them in order as you learn about the various men and how Waterloo affected them.
