Paradinome ~Koi ni Mi wo Yudanete~ (パラディノメ ~恋に身をゆだねて~, Surrender ~Entrust Yourself to Love~) is Iida Kaori's second album. It was released on October 22, 2003, only six months after her debut album when she was still a member of Morning Musume. Much like her debut album, this album also contains covers of famous Mediterranean songs from Greece, Italy and France. This genre was dubbed as euro-enka by fans and some music critics in Japan because of the similarities to Japan's own folk music style, enka.

Although the track titles are in Japanese, each song is sung in its original language. The album cover was painted by Iida herself.
