She's the only one who can see through his golden boy façade to the broken god within...

Chrysander Notos, Supreme God of the South Wind and Summer, is on a mission: save Eurus from his death sentence, and prove his troubled brother can be redeemed. But Eurus fights back, triggering vicious summer storms that threaten the mortal realm, dangerously drain Chrys, and earn the ire of the Olympic gods who ordered Eurus dead.

Laney Summerlyn refuses to give up her grandfather's horse farm, despite her deteriorating vision. More than ever, she needs the organized routine of her life at Summerlyn Stables, until a ferocious storm brings an impossible—and beautiful—creature crashing down from the heavens.

Injured while fighting Eurus, Chrys finds himself at the mercy of a mortal woman whose compassion and acceptance he can't resist. As they surrender to the passion flaring between them, immortal enemies close in, forcing Chrys to choose between his brother and the only woman who's ever loved the real him.

4 - "Dare To Know" Stars.

"I'll Take care of you."

"I know you will."

Chrys wasn't sure he would ever feel truly content without her warmth and courage and strength at his side.

There are so many beginnings in this book, I am excited to see where Laura takes us with the rest of this series. It's the ...more

Not since Gena Showlater’s Lords of the Underworld series have I been so excited for a paranormal romance series. There’s a reason I mentioned LotU, although there are more favorite series on my list. If you’re familiar with Showalter’s story telling, you’ll know that she doesn’t shy away from shock ...more

By Nicola May 30, 2014

South of Surrender is just a superb read. Whilst romantic, it's different to the first books in the series as there is a huge amount of action; I predicted the Gods of the weather world would clash, and this book truly sees the beginning of the onslaught.

It's that descriptively perfect that I visua ...more

By Emily February 28, 2020

Oooooh, i really enjoyed this book. It takes place a few months after the last book and Chrys is in the summer months, his months and has been battling Eurus without much luck. In fact considering that Chrys should be the strongest one at the moment, that is not what is happening, Eurus somehow has ...more

By Sophia June 14, 2013

Oh wow! This book just took me on an incredible roller coaster ride of emotions and I'm still weak-kneed from it all. I thought the other two books in the series were good, but this one took it to a whole new level. It picked right up from where West of Want left off so yes, that means they must be ...more

You know, there are times I have to ask myself, "why haven't you read this author before now, Melissa?" I often feel like that once I read a book from an author I hadn't before, and the book turns out to be so kick butt.

So I suppose that gives away exactly what I thought about South of Surrender. I ...more

South Of Surrender is amazing.
Each book in the Hearts of the Anemoi series goes deeper into the family and their history. They aren't books you forget between each one. You think about them until the next one arrives. I reached a point with South of Surrender that felt like my heart was wrenched fr ...more

Despite the fact that this was more of an open-ended story than the others, I have enjoyed this one the most in the series, so far. I'm excited to read Devlin's story and to see how everything plays out with Eurus. I sorta want to send some hate mail to you, Laura Kaye for what you did to us--and yo ...more

Five stars, and yes, it deserves every one of them. Readers, be prepared to drop everything and read it to the end, because you aren't going to want to put it down. An unexpected twist left me in tears, but in a good way. Bring on the next installment, Ms. Kaye! ...more

A binge worthy series!

I sooo love these books. Chrys is good and kind, but riddled with guilt. Laney is loving and nurturing in spite of her handicap. In a world filled with surprises can they both accept the biggest surprise of all?
