“Sometimes, mirrored souls are born. They are rare and unique in that they will only reflect the light of their twin. No other will catch and hold their attention. You are such a soul.”
Cora had loved him once, but that was before Neb broke her heart. Now, a handmaiden to Arianrhod, Cora watches Neb from the safety of the god realm and what she sees—she doesn’t like. He is an arrogant and self-serving fey, just like his older brother, Hueil. But after centuries of avoiding Tir na n-Og and Neb, fate has brought them together once more. Will she surrender to the dark passion his touch ignites? Or, can cool logic protect Cora from the one her heart and soul desire most?
Navigating the dangers and politics of the unseelie court is second nature to Neb, but now, he must use all his wits if he’s to survive the Morrigan’s command of bedding one of Arianrhod’s handmaidens. He knows that stealing from the goddess of fate can be tricky, perhaps even deadly. To make matters worse, Neb has the unsettling feeling that he should know the blue-eyed beauty. He is drawn to Cora like a bee to honey, and soon realizes that just bedding her will never be enough. She is the one, the only one for him.
Review: Readers’ Favorite

“Something which I really admire about the Darkly Series is the strength and realism of the world in which it is built, connecting characters and concepts from other books, whilst at the same time delivering the same high-quality hot romance novel for its readers every time. Author Tarrant Smith keeps it fresh with another pair of romancers, and I particularly enjoyed this match as Cora balances heart and head very well throughout the tale. Neb was fun to read, dynamic on every page and vividly described from head to toe, and once again Smith’s attention to detail and strong emotional inner monologue lends itself to powerful storytelling. Overall, Surrendered Darkly marks another vivid and engaging addition to an already excellent series, and I’d highly recommend it for romance, fantasy and fey fans everywhere.”

“Tarrant Smith has added yet another colorful book to her Darkly series. Surrendered Darkly follows Cora and Neb on their journey back to one another and along a tumultuous and unlikely courtship.“
“From the first page, this romantic fantasy engages readers with the lives of colorful characters and explores realms via two headstrong main characters, Neb and Cora. Theirs is a story fans of romance won’t want to miss.”
