The Earl’s Complete Surrender: Secrets at Thorncliff Manor is a historical romance by Sophie Barnes. James, the Earl of Woodford, is a spy whose latest mission is to find a missing journal containing names of The Electors, a group of dominating political conspirators. His search takes him to Thorncliff Manor where he meets Lady Newbury. She constantly bumps into James whenever he looks for the journal, and the two soon realize they are attracted to each other. However, one of James’ rules is to never mix business with pleasure. Lady Chloe Newbury admits she is also looking for the journal so the two agree to work together. Now someone else desperately wants the book and will commit murder to keep the identities of The Electors safe.
Sophie Barnes’ The Earl’s Complete Surrender: Secrets at Thorncliff Manor is more than a historical romance. It has a good, suspenseful mystery and a vibrant group of characters who display the typical habits and wit of the specified period. I like the author’s descriptive writing and how she develops her characters. The events are entertaining with sufficient action, and the romantic scenes were mild and tasteful. Chloe experienced problems that are very realistic and these were expressed very well. It’s an interesting read since James is a spy and Chloe is a novice. I think the cover illustration is eye-catching and complements the story. The Earl’s Complete Surrender: Secrets at Thorncliff Manor by Sophie Barnes is a quick, light-hearted mystery-romance read.
