Though forced to fight for the hated British, Morgan MacKinnon would no more betray the men he leads than slit his own throat - not even when he was captured by the French and threatened with an agonizing death by fire at the hands of their Abenaki allies.
Only the look of innocent longing in the eyes of a convent-bred French lass could make him question his vow to escape and return to the Rangers. And soon the sweet passion he awoke in Amalie had him cursing the war that forced him to choose between upholding his honor and pledging himself to the woman he loves.

HOPEFUL ROMANTIC. I Enjoy Historical & Inspirational Romances With Great Narration. Oh, And I give Honest Reviews with No Spoilers. ;-)
Going into this book I didn't think it was possible to top "Surrender" (book 1 this series) but I was so wrong. "Untamed" was even better!
"Untamed" is a exciting American historical romance set near the Albany NY region. The story is intense, steamy, heartwarming and unpredictable. Usually I can predict where a story is going but this one kept me guessing the whole way through. The history within this book is compelling and the love scenes are exquisite.
The author has a wonderful way of making the reader feel comfortable and connected with each character in the story. Each person in the story is written with so much depth that they seem to have layers of personality. Yes, Morgan (the hero) is a fierce warrior and passionate lover but he also has weaknesses that are fully disclosed. Amalie (the heroine) is an endearing young lady direct from the Convent who's unconditional love and bravery is heartwarming.
Kaleo Griffith, the narrator, was exceptional. He has the perfect voice for this genre.
I am soooo pre-ordering the next book.
[At the time I wrote this review the first book "Surrender" is no longer available. It;s a shame they pulled it from the lineup because it's such a good story. Although it would be ideal to listen to Book 1 before Book 2 it is not absolutely necessary. Book 2 does review the basics of Book 1 so the reader isn't completely lost to the past events. I think Book 2 does stand alone as a great read. I just hope they bring "Surrender" back soon.]
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
Pamela Clare whisks you away on an unpredictable historical adventure that's got intrigue, romance, humour, action, suspense and a handful of well developed likeable characters that bring so much depth and life to her stories. It's so well written that you get drawn into the intense plot straight away and spend your time mesmerised as you visualise each chapter's events in your head. You live through the torture, skirmishes, treachery, romance and sacrifice that these band of hunky Highland brothers have to endure for the sake of the Rangers and love.
Morgan's code of duty, loyalty and honour is tested when he's captured and tortured by the French but Amalie who's kind, naive and compassionate nurses him back from death and gives him a reason to go on. However, theirs is a forbidden romance as they're on opposite sides but he is swept away by her beauty and goodness and so they start off as friends and love slowly blossoms into a sweet, sexy, sensual, funny, romantic, tender and touching affair that will, in the end, call for trust, forgiveness, loyalty and understanding. Morgan must choose between love and his duty to his band of brothers and just when he thinks he has then the plot throws in another terrible twist.
Worth a credit? Excellent writing, good plot and a passionate love story - an enjoyable, exciting listen and a worthy addition to the 'Highland Hunks' part of my library - so it has to be a YES.
I have spent the night listening to the awesome narration of this book. The accents, the emotion, the stunning story, and romance kept me way longer than I had intended. I was not sure I wanted to do an historical but Pamela Clare's I-Team series has been my favorite of the summer. So, I decided to go for it with my free credit. Love, Love, Love the narrator! His voice and the story made this an excellent choice.
This story grabbed me with the first word and held me til the last one. I laughed and held my breath and nearly cried, emotions that rarely occur inside one book. Oh, and then there was the sizzle that occurred between Morgan and Amalie. And let me just say that if I could choose one narrator to perform every book I listen to from now on it would be Kaleo Griffith. Simply superb, sir.
Thank you Pamela Clare for another great listen.
Book Lover :}
I have gone back and listened again to all of my Pamela Clare audio books. I love them all, all over again. I love the strong male characters and the strong woman that they love. The stories are only enhanced by the voice of Kaleo Griffith. Looking forward to many more of the talented pairing of Clare and Griffith.
Enjoyed the complicated situations that Morgan was involved. Seemed a very difficult way of life. As a work of fiction the method used to deliver the story caused you to have to remind yourself that it is not true history.
Frankly, enjoyed this book more than I thought I would.
I only listen to the audio version.
The love of the three brothers for each other and their wives.
So far it's Eonn but there is still Connor.Joseph is way up there too.
The Love of a Brother.
The love of these brothers, including Joseph, is amazing. Not only for each other but their wives and children. It's a true family story.This love was equally extended to and returned by Joseph and his tribe.
Never read the book
How well it was written. The person reading the book put some much feeling into the reading that you came in vision all that is happening is real. This is the first one I have listen to and when I finished it a bought the other two right away. The love they have for each other is like no other book I have read. The history of the war is true to all the history books I have taught from. If you don't like hot sex scenes, the ones is this book aren't to graphic but you can feel the passion of love making. I will read this book again when I need to know that there is good in the world no matter how many wars have been waged in the world.
Cameron. He is a true fighter. I have had many on my family in wars I and I believe that Cameron fights just like any our military men and women fight today
True men and women fight for their county and family and for what is right.
I will read this book again and maybe buy the book for my friends to read. So they will know why military family stand behind their sons, daughters and family to keep our country free.
