From Pamela Clare’s Site: A hand-picked cadre of warriors, they had the fierce courage of their Scots forefathers, combined with the stealth and cunning of the Indians who lived beside them in the wilderness. Battling the French in no-holds-barred combat, they forged a new brand of honor, became a new breed of men…

MacKinnon’s Rangers

Iain MacKinnon had been forced to serve the British crown, but compassion urged him to save the lovely lass facing certain death at the hands of the Abenaki. He’d defied his orders, endangered his brothers, his men and his mission, all for a woman. But when he held Annie’s sweet body in his arms, he could feel no regret. Though he sensed she was hiding something from him, it was too late to hold back his heart. In love and war, there are times when the only course of action is… Surrender.

Bought from Amazon

What I loved:  This was pure historic romance at the top of the game.  I laughed, cried, wanted to flip to the back to make sure everything worked out ok, and fell in love with all of the Rangers!  It wasn’t just the love story between Iain and Annie that stole my heart but the love and acceptance that the Rangers displayed of their love.  The camaraderie between all the men and the protectiveness they had for Annie was just heartwarming to read!

What I Liked:  I have to say I liked Wentworth as a “villain”.  He wasn’t the big bad but he was the perfect thorn in the side to the Rangers.  I also appreciated how the story unfolded.  It wasn’t everything all at once but slowly and deliberately. Those were rough times but the pride of all the characters showed through their actions.  Much like I imagine it truly was!

Complaints: Not enough Killy–that boy cracked me up! Dang Irishman in a Scottish Troop 🙂

Why I gave it a 4:  This was very close to a 5 book for me (talking 4 3/4 Wine Glasses)–it was a fantastic story with great characters.  I loved the period that it was written in and didn’t feel it was lacking at all!

Who I would recommend it too: Historical Romance Readers

    Look at that cover! I love a man with a Celtic knot tattoo. I like that it's a historical set in America with Scottish warriors!

    I don't think this is my kind of book, but I just wanted to say your review system is hilarious! 4 and a half glasses of wine – I am picturing someone "drunk" on good books.Also, your blog design is lovely!
