When his brother leaves him in charge of Llynmore Castle, Robert Townsend is determined to make everything go smoothly. What does it matter if he's inexplicably drawn to Ian Cameron, the estate’s stoic steward? Robert is sure he can ignore the way the Highlander's apparent dislike of him gets under his skin. They'll muddle along just fine so long as they avoid one another. An excellent plan…until a fire forces Ian into the castle—and Robert's personal space.

Ian Cameron has worked for everything he owns, unlike spoiled Robert Townsend. And he may not have friends, but he has the Highlands and the stars, and what more could he really need? But when a guest's stolen possession appears in his room, he doesn't have much choice but to admit to the handsome and aggravatingly charming Townsend brother that he needs help. To solve this mystery, they'll have to put aside their differences. And as Ian learns more about Robert, he'll have to guard his heart…or it may be the next thing stolen.

*4.25 stars*

I'm seeing a lot of reviews that are all over the map for this one, but I thought A Scot's Surrender by new-to-me author Lily Maxton was pretty great.

I love, love, love historical romance, and when I get a well-done, slow-burn historical romance, well, you've got me.

Confession time...

I love historicals, at some point I felt I've read all the Historical MM writers possible.
I thought I knew them all. Like, come on.
And then I saw A Scot's Surrender by Lily Maxton.
Apparently, there was an author I didn't know of.
So I checked the book, therefore the writer an... ...more

A Joyfully Jay review.

4.5 stars

A Scot’s Surrender was a really delightful surprise and I just loved it. I say surprise only because Lily Maxton is a new-to-me author, and this book is the third in a series where I haven’t read the other books. So I wasn’t sure quite what to expect from this one,... ...more

Ian Cameron and Robert Townsend

What an excellent written warm story. It felt like a movie, written in a way easy to visualize .
The slow burn was superb done. The tension, attraction, the push and pull...somewhat stubborn headed.

So aware of each other presence, It was heavy and sensual.

By Julie February 26, 2018

This was the first time I read a book by Lily Maxton, and I really enjoyed it! A Scot's Surrender is actually the third book in The Townsends series, but can be read as a stand alone. I have not read the previous two books, but I didn't feel lost at any time. That beings said, I definitely need t... ...more

I adored this! Really nice slow burn & fairly low angst. Plus a plot and characters that I don't feel like I've seen before. ...more

By Pjm12 March 10, 2018

I loved the slow build from antagonism to heated lust, then forever love. History usually shows that same sex couples remain hidden and below the radar. It's always interesting to see how romance novels juggle this line--to have the couple find happiness, but still live within the confines of the... ...more

** 4.5 Stars **

While A Scot's Surrender is part of The Townsends Series (m/f series), it is not necessary to read the previous books in order to enjoy this novel. It was delightful from start to finish and rather well-written. There's a nice mystery that was fun to read but the heart of the story... ...more

By Book Gannet March 12, 2018

3.5 stars.

As a first attempt at M/M romance, this was a good effort and fit in well with the rest of the series. Robert is charming and sweet, while Ian is your usual darkly brooding Scot. They have a strongly antagonistic relationship at the start, though only partly because of the attraction be... ...more

By Lori March 11, 2018

This is not my usual trope to read but I found it engaging and it held my attention. I think this may be the first book by Lily Maxton involving a m/m relationship. It was well done in the author's usual style. The setting and characters were well described and engaged you in the story. Robert To... ...more

This book was pleasant company on the rainy night I read it. I enjoyed this short novel. This enemies to lovers M/M historical romance takes place in a quiet, English countryside, where a lightning storm and flash food set in motion a series of events forcing the heroes, Robert, an earl’s younger... ...more

Sometimes I love a good old historical romance - and if it's between two men all the better.

A Scot's Surrender was a really charming and fun read. Robert Townsend seems to have it all - looks, money, wit and the talent to get everyone to like him... except for grouchy Scottish factor Ian who see... ...more

By Sarah Meerkat March 13, 2018

This is such a delightful story with sweet characters and low level angst. Just what I needed right now. This story has eveything from the quiet drinking of a shared flask while star gazing and the hunt for a thief. And the best part a very mischievous cat who causes quite a bit of trouble. I qui... ...more

By Liv March 04, 2018

I enjoyed A Scot's Surrender, Historical MM romance is not a genre I have previously read, I enjoy both Historical and MM Genres so this combination was a win-win for me.

Ian and Robert were a really likable couple, I found myself rooting for their love to survive the challenges thrown at them. T... ...more

This is the third book in The Townsend’s Series, it is a MM historical romance. I really enjoyed this book. I did not read the first two books in the series, but I never felt like I was missing something because of that. The setting is wonderful, the characters well developed and the story was pa... ...more

By Amira March 13, 2018

This was another enjoyable read. It felt slow in the beginning, but I came to love that. The romance felt real and not rushed, and I really saw how Robert and Ian fell in love. It was more sweet and endearing instead of a hot burst of passion when they came together, but it was still good and tru... ...more

3.5 Stars.

This felt like more of a novella than a full novel, but it was still enjoyable. The two main characters were fairly well developed, but there definitely could have been more development of the secondary characters. The resolution to the mystery was quite silly b... ...more
