The Surrender of a Lady - Tiffany Clare

Sold. With one word, Lady Elena Ravenscliffe’s destiny changes forever. Forced into Constantinople’s slave market to pay off her late husband’s debts and save her son, Elena reinvents herself as Jinan—a harem girl adored by the rich lords who bid on her favors. But one man instantly sees through her façade.

Griffin Summerfield, Marquess of Rothburn, let Elena slip through his fingers years ago. When he recognizes her on the auction block, he pays an outrageous sum to possess her even if it is for a short period of time. But when his deadline looms, Griffin will risk all in a desperate bid to make her his—and his alone…

So.... Im not sure how I would describe this book. I loved it but hated it? Hate is such a strong word.... Maybe dislike is a little better. I had such high hopes for this book. The whole him finding her in a harem, and wanting to be with her forever was such a great storyline, but its one of those books where one or both characters dislikes the other one...  but in reality they love/like each other they just don't want to tell the other one.... UGGG. I just wanted to shake the characters though the whole book. The book was pretty well written, i'll admit. There are some scenes in the book that make you want to fan yourself! I just wish that the book had a little more romance, him wooing her more... Them fighting, keeping secrets, not telling the whole truth , left me wanting to scream at them... All in all I couldn't put the book down... even though I had some issues with it.
