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.

    "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 York 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.

    Cant wait for another book in this series.

    "Epic Historical Love Story"

    Wow, this story is brilliantly written with such attention to detail for the time period. There is such rich depth of characters that you'll feel like you know them and you'll miss them when it's over. There's Iaian and Annie the principal characters. Then there are Morgan and Conner, Iaian's brothers, Joseph, their Indian brother, Killy a feisty Irishman and so many others to love. Wentworth "the wee German Lairdy " is their commander and he's equally interesting, of course you want to choke his neck sometimes.
    I highly recommend this book to anyone. It has battle action, comedy and a beautiful love story in a historical setting that's so real you feel like you're in it. Enjoy!

    "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!

    Story
    "P. Clare and K. Griffith a magical combination"
    Any additional comments?

    This series is very much history, action, adventure, and romance in the style of the movie ( not the book) "the last of the mohicans". Clare writes great stories that keep you entertained from beginning to end, and balance suspense, romance and adventure in a perfect way.
    The real magic happens in this audio book with this amazing narration.Griffith is just excellent!
    I have listened to over 400 books, and in my opinion there are only two masters of narration that never get it wrong: Roz Landor and Kaleo Griffith ( who is fairly new on the scene, but must have gotten great training and has an amazing voice and talent). There are other good narrators but these two are just a cut above the rest.
    Audible, please bring more Pamela Clare and more Kaleo Griffith!
    Enjoy this book and the rest in the series, they are great fun and worth every credit!

    Story
    "Loved these books!"
    What did you love best about MacKinnon's Rangers, Book 1?

    Have listened to all three of the McKinnon historical books and loved listening to everyone. Kaleo Griffith could read the phone book and I would listen, but he brought these stories to light for me. I do not listen to a lot of historical romances but certainly would listen to more if he narrated. That being said, Pamela Clare is one of my favorite authors and her books are always on my auto buy list.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes!


    Any additional comments?

    More Kaelo please!

    Story
    "LOVED this series!"
    Where does MacKinnon's Rangers, Book 1 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I listened to all three of the books in this series. Excellent stories. Wonderful characters. And Kaleo Griffith brought them all to life.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I liked all three of the MacKinnon brothers. They all had their strengths and weaknesses which kept me rooting for them to find true love and hold onto it.


    Have you listened to any of Kaleo Griffith’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've only listened to his work on this series and would definitely recommend others give his work a try.
