Published by Leisure Books
Morgan MacKinnon, Brother to Ian and Connor, found himself taking charge of the Rangers after his eldest brother Ian received his release from service to live with his wife Annie.As the war between the French, British and Abanaki Indians continues, so does Morgan’s service to the British Commander Lord William Wentworth. In one of his missions, he was captured and tortured by the French soldiers. He found himself at the mercy of a French/Abanaki woman who will care for him and eventually fall in love with him.
Amalie Chauvenet is the daughter a French Commander, who was recently killed. She found herself taking care of Morgan who could very well be the killer of her father. However, as a true Catholic, she is compelled to care for Morgan and even to a point of protecting him.
A true survival of the fittest, both H/h will have to make choices that will test their loyalties, beliefs and, in the process, falling in love.
We see a good amount of Ian, Annie, Joseph, Connor and Wentworth, which I truly enjoyed. It is nice to see how the books in this series are well connected and we get to see a good amount of the characters from book one.
This colonial period love story is NOT to be missed. I was enthralled with the love story between Morgan and Amalie. It is always the most satisfying when the H/h has to make hard choices just to be with their newly found love. And even more rewarding when you see them get their HEA.
The 3rd book DEFIANT of MacKinnon’s Rangers is to be released July 3rd, 2012
