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.

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.
