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.

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.

This book is almost ...more

The Townsends is an historical romance quartet following the lives and loves of four siblings living in a secluded castle in the Scottish Highlands.

This third book, featuring youngest brother Robert, is an M/M romance, and was definitely my inspiration for reading the entire series from the ...more

4.5 stars rounded up :) I still want an epilogue, and there was some drama I could've lived without, but the rest of it was just so sweet and funny, I can't not give this 5 stars!

Can we please just all take a moment to let the fact that Lily Maxton wrote her first m/m book as part of a series that ...more

adored this book, adored this couple

I hadn't heard of this author so I picked this book on a whim. I'm always looking for new (or new to me) authors. I'm so glad I tried this one because I really liked it. It starts as a bit of an enemies to lovers. Ian works ...more

This book made me happy.

Historical? Uh huh!
Scottish Highlands? Yep!
Ginger? Yassssss! UNF!
A KILT wearing ginger? Hell to the Yassss!



Scot’s Surrender is an enjoyable historical that's humorous with well written characters. The angst is minimal, the plot simple, but the actual romance is well c ...more

This is the third book in a series where all other books are m/f, but this should not put you off. I read this as a standalone and had no trouble following it!

We all know that good historical m/m romance is not easy to come by. Lily Maxton is a totally new author to me, but I thoroughly enjoyed myse ...more

Another day, another Townsends tale to charm me...and inspire visions of Jamie Fraser...

First things first: hightail it to Amazon and get yourself a copy of Highland Haunting: A Halloween Story. When you finish this, read that. "But it's not Halloween...", you say. True, Highland Haunting IS a deli ...more

*3.5 stars*

Very nice historical MM romance. What’s not to like anyway ? Robert, a very nice young man not frivolous at all, but sunny and caring for his family and Ian, Robert’s stewart, hard worker, loving the stars and crumbling in front of Robert.

Very nice settings, low on angst with some nice s ...more

I've given this a B- at AAR, so that's 3.5 stars rounded up.

Lily Maxton’s series about the Townsend siblings continues with A Scot’s Surrender, in which the good-natured, carefree Robert Townsend meets his match. It’s a short, but entertaining read, and the author crafts a tender, sensual romance be ...more

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 and s ...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. ...more

Scot’s Surrender by Lily Maxton is the third story in her historical romance Townsend series. It’s also her first male/male romance and features an opposites attract story set in the Scottish countryside.

Robert Townsend is in charge of his family’s Lynmore Castle while his older brother is away. A ...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, bu ...more

This review first appeared at Romantic Historical Reviews.

A Scot’s Surrender is my first Lily Maxton book and though I didn’t love it, I liked it very much. As a fan of queer historical romance, I’m always on the lookout for new authors to follow and it was a nice surprise to discover Ms. Maxton inc ...more

“On impulse, he reached out to take Ian’s hand and threaded their fingers together. In the corner of his vision, he glimpsed the curve of Ian’s mouth. Warmth filled his chest, and he tipped his head back to look at the stars. Thanks to Ian, he could find the North Star now, every single time. The gu ...more

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 to g ...more

By Ekollon April 10, 2018

I loved this book! I admit to a certain level of trepidation because it was the first M/M by an author who had previously written M/F, and it was part of a series that contained M/F (and I hadn't read the previous M/F installments), but I was assured that this book could be read as a standalone and ...more

Fan of Scottish Highlanders? British Aristocrats? Hate-to-love tropes? Historical romances? This might just be the book for you!

I really enjoyed this! There was a palpable tension between Ian and Robert, the two heroes, from the very beginning, and once Ian loosened up, some good ba ...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 their ...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 li ...more
