Surrender to a Beautiful Story of Courage and Love
This book has it all....Indians, Scottish Highlanders, Royalty, and Romance. (This story is packed with history based around the Albany area of New Yo..Show More »rk State.) It is a beautiful book that is filled with sacrifice, courage, compassion, bravery, desire, love and romance.
Within the first couple of chapters I was drawn into the story of Iain and Annie. The heartbreak and conflicts that both had to endure was deplorable and I knew immediately I had to find out if they overcome their struggles. Of course, there was lots of "smoldering fire" between them which also helped to keep me listening!
The narrator did an excellent job. He had many accents (English, French, Scottish, Native American) to deal with.....not to mention the male/female voices. He made it easy to distinguish the different voices.......which I appreciate.
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!
..Show More »>"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.]
This series has taken me on a journey that I will not soon forget. All three books deliver heartwarming adventures filled with history, romance, and..Show More » true life heartbreaks. The author develops characters that seem so real that many times I found myself feeling emotions I don't always feel from books. A few times I even laughed out loud.
Defiant is the third book of the Mackinnon's Rangers series and this book tells Connor's story. Without giving the plot away Connor meets Sarah in a extraordinary way and through frightening and suspenseful circumstances their love grows. It is a touching love story that no one should miss.
Although this is meant to be a trilogy, I've heard that there may be more books added to this series. I sincerely hope that this is true.
This book, as well as the whole series, is definitely worth the credits over and over again.
