Happiness was always too much for Lady Amelia to hope for. Now all she expects is to secure her future and marry Charles, Duke of Castleberry, as arranged. But Amelia has a dangerous secret that could not only destroy her in Charles's eyes and the eyes of society, but could also very well condemn her to Bedlam.

Baron Endsleigh, Amelia’s oldest friend, has other ideas. Ender has loved Amelia all his life. He knows her secrets, and they don’t frighten him. He plans to come between Amelia and Charles in any way he can to prevent the marriage and finally claim Amelia for his own. Though her father forbade the match years ago, Ender is determined to have her as his wife and nothing can stop him. Not even a duke as powerful as Castleberry.

That duke has hated Baron Endsleigh and wanted Amelia for, what seems to him, forever. Charles will stop at nothing to make her his, and his alone, even if that means destroying the one thing he knows she loves most in this world—Endsleigh.

Will Amelia be able to choose when one man speaks to her head and the other her heart?

None of them will find happiness until they all three learn to embrace absolute surrender.

REVIEW(contains spoilers):

An illustrated romance? What? A historical ménage? What had a chosen to read? What I found was one of the best written tales of love, need and desire I’ve ever read!

Amelia, Hugh and Charles have known each other since childhood, but it is Hugh that knows Amelia. The boy who has become a man that knows her secrets, her “Twitchy Episodes” and can help her through those dark moments where she loses herself within her mind.

However, Charles is a Duke and the man she is to marry even is Hugh has been her love, an essential part of her life for as long as she can remember. Hugh has always loves and protected Amelia, his desire for her and her happiness is so strong he’s willing to try to teach Charles how to handle her “episodes” so that he may walk away. But can he?

Amelia loves and treasures Hugh, for Charles there’s an undeniable almost animalistic attraction that she can’t control. Amelia needs Hugh, he is her rock, her support. Without him she is lost when she is with Charles.
“Charles’s liquid brown eyes, Hugh’s bright as the sea. Charles’s deep, thick hair, and Hugh’s longer sun-kissed blonde. It was nearly humorous. The differences between the two.”
Charles, a distinguished man, with duties to the crown; a man who is used to getting everything he wants on command. Can he allow himself to feel, to love enough to understand Amelia needs them both?
“Love requires bravery, my friend.”
“I’ve waited the whole of my life to feel this and not be terrified. The absolute surrender.”
Absolute Surrender—an amazing, timeless tale of love and honor. Can two men trust each other to love, to share the same woman? Can they protect her and themselves from a disapproving society that could never understand the depths of their feelings and relationship?
“I do believe I’m quite desperately in love with you…”
That quote is the best description I could ever give for this story, but then it is even better. Perfectly placed within the words of the story are beautiful portraits. Photos, that don’t distract, but add even more beauty and sensuality to exquisite tale.

This is more than I love it, read it book. This is a must have, must tell everyone and read over and over keeper!
