From the moment she could put pen to paper, Mariel Grey knew she wanted to be a writer. Like all good adventures however, it didn’t happen overnight; it was after several decades of working in litigation that the desire to create dramatic worlds and characters became too great to ignore. Her first foray into historical romance, Surrender of Trust, explored the grime and glamour of regency horse racing, following the determined but impoverished Lucy Goodwin and upright Lord Chalifour. Her second novel, A Gentleman’s Surrender, released January 2016, introduced the innocent Lady Monique and tortured Mr. Stanton, both struggling to find love in a world filled with deceit.
Though entirely at home in the ballrooms and street alleys of London past, Mariel Grey is currently working on a contemporary story set in Florida, a landscape dear to the author’s heart. When she isn’t conjuring words on her computer screen, Grey can be found on the water fishing, snorkeling, and enjoying the incredible natural beauty of her home.
Mariel has a wonderful husband (the hero of her own romantic story) as well as a mischievous cat (who seems happy to play the role of villain). In addition to being a dutiful wife and animal wrangler, Mariel is a member of the American Romance Writers Association, and the Ancient City Romance Authors chapter.

A lovely romance story.
I was surprised and impressed by the eye for historical details, such as the food they had, how the gardens looked like and the way they dressed in that period of time. I don't know a lot about horses and the horse business, but that was very detailed as well.

Surrender Of Trust
By Mariel Grey
If you buy only one book a year then, I highly recommend getting this one. The author has knocked the ball right out of the park on her first try at bat.
The story is very well researched. I was impressed with her accuracy of the Arabian bloodlines, which I personally know myself, and put together in a very satisfying, neatly wrapped package.
I do not agree with the one star reviews that are posted on Amazon. If you do not care for this type of book then why do you buy them? I found it to be a lovely story and the circumstances involving the heroine’s actions quite believable. And who hasn’t met a man in their lifetime that would plot out a way to seduce a woman that he wanted?
As far as the “identical twin” business, I am fairly certain that in the early 1800’s they would not have made a distinction of their sexual variances making a difference as far as them being identical. And since it was the characters view of them…I don’t see the problem.
The book has been re-edited recently to fix any missing words, etc. and I promise, you will not be disappointed. If I could rate it higher than five stars…I would!
I am looking forward to reading more from this budding new author in the future. Do not miss this one!
