MacKinnon's Rangers, Book 1: Surrender | [Pamela Clare]

MacKinnon's Rangers, Book 1: Surrender

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 a 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.

Publisher's Summary

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 a 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.

    "Good story"

    Started a little slow but as the
    characters developed got much better. The beginning was a bit too cliche..., she's small and helpless and he's a big strong warrior but once the writer got past that and developed the characters personalities it got much better. I look forward to the next book.

    "Well written colonial time romance"

    I wasn't expecting scots fighting in the French Indian war in colonial America but it was well done. The narrator did a great job delivering the emotion and eight amount of angst in this book.

    "LOVE PAMELA CLARE & KALEO GRIFFITH!"

    Wonderful story placed in an interesting period of American history! Performed very well by Kaleo Griffith. I'm a big fan of Pamela Clare's works but had my doubts about this historical series. She pulled me into the story at the very beginning. Who knew that the military branch known as the Rangers actually had it's beginnings in the mid 1700's. Absolutely loved the whole series and hated to see it end!

    "The right stuff"

    I liked this story verra verra much. The characters were well written with depth and a little messed up in the head, the stuff of good romance novels. Anxious moments, scarring events, an abhorrent villain, and emotional turmoil. Kaleo Griffith's narrative talents are excellent, his smooth sensual voice only adds to the impact of the story. If I have one complaint, it is on the part of the writer for the overuse of the word bonney as a descriptive. Overall, definitely worth a credit, and will probably give this one (the whole series) a second listen.

    "Heartwarming! Exciting! Intriguing!"

    Pamela Clare may be my new favorite author! And Kaleo Griffith is beyond good! This book keeps the listener engaged at all times. There's never a dull moment! I caught myself anticipating what was to happen next. If there's a negative thing to be said about Kaleo Griffith, it would be that he didn't read FAST ENOUGH! LOL!!! This book has certainly pulled me into the entire series! Worth the credit? ABSOLUTELY!

    "Where to begin"

    There are a number of things that contribute to how well a book can be rated. Performance always contributes so beginning there, I'll say the Mr. Griffith does an outstanding job with realistic accents and emphasis making his reading truly a performance not just a reading.
    Now to judge the story there are a number of things I look for. Obviously in a historical novel, the story must be true to the history. This book meets that measure admirably. Having read a number of fiction and non fiction works about this period, I am familiar enough with it to see that Ms Clare has done her homework and brought the truth of the time to the fiction of her story. While McKinnon's rangers are a fictional group, they are accurately patterned after ranger groups that were active on the American frontier during the 17th & 18th century.
    So, with that sound base, Ms Clare has written a thrilling story built around a love story that is realistic and exciting.
    With this combination of performance and story, this first book in the series can only be rated as high as possible, and invites the listener to order the next one before the first is finished so there is no time spent waiting to continue the adventure.

    "Nay! Dinna bother with this one!"
    Any additional comments?

    Mousy and weak heroine meets overly sexed scot! Narrator did ok with character voices, except heroine's - which he made sound like a meek and always abiding female YUK- I got past that but couldn't get past his normal reading of text and sentences that you thought ended. Another word was added as if he had turned the page and realized the sentence wasn't over! Pauses and inflections of emotion were confusing. Two stars was pushing it but I have heard worse.

    "Predictable"

    I have listened to a lot of these kinds of stories and most can hold my interest. However this one did not. The narrator was good but the story line was so predictable that I could not even finish the book. I got board. The sex in the book was also to graphic for me and I think it was a failed attempt to make the story more interesting. For me it ruined what little the story had. Even though I did not finish the book I have no doubt about the ending. My main thought about the book was as I stated before PREDICTABLE.
