Defiant by Pamela Clare
Date Read: September 2014
Genre: Historical, Romance
Charged with a crime they didn't commit, the MacKinnon brothers faced a death sentence until they agreed to serve the British Crown in the colonies and take up arms against the French. Allied with the Indian tribes who lived beside them in the wilderness, the Scottish Highland warriors forged a new breed of soldier...
Major Connor MacKinnon despises his commander, Lord William Wentworth, beyond all other men. Ordered to rescue Wentworth's niece after the Shawnee take her captive, he expects Lady Sarah Woodville to be every bit as arrogant and contemptible as her uncle. Instead, he finds a brave and beautiful lass in desperate peril. But the only way to free Sarah is for Connor to defeat the Shawnee warrior who kidnapped her—and claim her himself.
Torn by tragedy from her sheltered life in London, Lady Sarah is unprepared for the harshness of the frontier—or for the attraction she feels toward Connor as he guides her first through the consummation of their forced union and then through the dangers of the wilderness. When they reach civilization, however, it is she who must protect him. For if her uncle knew all that Connor had done to save her, he would surely kill him.
But the flames of passion, once kindled, are difficult to deny. As desire transforms into love, Connor will have to defy an empire to keep Sarah at his side.

Read It File It (Short Review): OMG I adored this whole series but Defiant by Pamela Clare just raised the bar on early American Historical Romance (which there needs to be more of IMHO). I read it in one evening (staying up late to finish it) and when I closed the last page I immediately looked to see if there was any more coming (there is a novella out there that gives you updates on everyone). Just a downright awesome read!
PS: I don’t think there are any more after the novella. That being said this was a complete series: all 3 brothers. Just, as I am want to do, I wanted some of the side characters to have stories too.
PSS: I just found out she has another early American Historical Romance series! They went on my Christmas/Birthday/Whatever list!
During her non-reading time you can find her hanging with her rescue furr children named after book characters: Lizzie a beautiful cattle dog mix (Pound Pup), Cinder a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Pound Pup), and Minerva a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Foster Fail). Gathering with friends and family, attending conventions, watching movies/tv shows, rooting for the 49rs, and crocheting.
