MacKinnon's Rangers

They were a band of brothers, their loyalty to one another forged by hardship and battle, the bond between these Highland warriors, rugged colonials, and fierce Native Americans stronger even than blood ties.

Though forced to fight for the hated British, Morgan MacKinnon would no more betray the

 Danielle The Book Huntress (Angels Weep For Goodreads)
I'd like to begin this review by listing some reasons that Morgan is a Hero to Die For:

1)Gorgeous, sexy, virile, delicious, with long dark hair and dark blue eyes, and a big, hard-muscled body. (Swoon).
2)He's an immensely capable warrior, a much-loved leader to his men.
3)His unimpeachable sense of honor, even when it put his life in jeopardy.
4)The gentle, loving way he treated Amalie.
5)The fact that he wasn't going to let anything stand between Amalie and him.

Aah!!! Okay, I admit that Iain is st

Opening Line: “Major Morgan Mackinnon lay on his belly, looking down from the summit of Rattlesnake Mountain to the French fort at Ticonderoga below.”

Och lassies, Pamela Clare has done it again. Tis no fair, I dinnae ken i twas possible for her to top the sheer bonnie-ness of Surrender (I’ll stop now) or that she could possibly create another hero capable of capturing my heart the way Iain did (yes Iain of the hundred lashes Iain) but then I hadn’t properly met his brother Morgan yet either and

2012 --Wonderful reading it for the second time, cried like a baby at the end! Heart melting, intense, and steamy -- what a perect kind of romance. Now let's bring on Connor's story!!!

2008--- Read it yesterday and absolutely loved it. It's the sequel to Clare's book `Surrender' and tells Morgan's story, the middle of three MacKinnon brothers. In short, it is an incredibly compelling, heart moving story that at times makes you feel as if a happy ending is simply impossible.

Huge 5+ stars.

I honestly didn't think I would like Untamed, the second book in Pamela Clare's MacKinnon's Rangers trilogy, as much as I liked the first book Surrender. Boy, was I wrong!

Once again, Pamela Clare took me on an exciting journey replete with adventure, suspense, and intrigue, coupled with a beautiful and passionate romance. I can easily say that everything I look for in an historical romance is in this book. Excellent writing, a tight and riveting plot, lovable and engaging character

UniquelyMoi ... So I Can Shine...

This is the 2nd installment of the MacKinnon's Rangers trilogy and was every bit as good as the 1st, if not better!

In this story, loyalties are tested and we learn that not everything is as it seems.

The characters are people I care about and the storyline is, once again, unique to the Highlander genre.

Untamed is a fast paced, funny and sexy read!

I really liked this story. Morgan and Amalie are great leads, even though I sometimes worried she was going to become TSTL or mewling. She didn't. She reasoned things out and came to correct conclusions almost every time. And had incredible faith in Morgan.

Usually I know pretty much how a story is going to work itself out. There may be a few surprises here and there, but mostly I know the path it's going to go. I really didn't know what was going to happen next with this, and yet, every part of

The MacKinnon brothers story started in Surrender continues with Morgan’s story in Untamed.

Morgan MacKinnon takes over as captain of MacKinnon’s Rangers after his older brother Iain is allowed to leave the service and return to the family farm with his wife Annie and their son. Morgan gets captured by the French at Fort Ticonderoga after he is gravely injured while helping save the life of one of his men. The French intend to try to save his life so he can be interrogated then given to the Abena

Want to know a secret? My least favored romance genre is historic American. Why? I have no idea! I’ve wondered about it time and again, but still haven’t been able to figure it out…they just don’t ‘send’ me.

I think i may have liked this one just a tiny bit more than the first book. I really liked Iain and Annie's love story from book one but there's just something about Morgan!! He was strong, courageous, sexy and soooo sweet with Amalie...not only did he display these qualities in his own book but we were reminded of everything he did in the first book for Annie...

After reading Surrender, the first book in Pamela Clare's MacKinnon's Rangers series, I quite honestly fell completely and hopelessly in love with the MacKinnon brothers. I thought Iain from Surrender was amazing and he and his brothers stole my heart and I knew from the start that I was lost to them! Morgan, the brother featured in Untamed, was just as to-die-for as Iain and his book was just as spectacular, if not even more brilliant than the first!!! 5 big stars (but in my head I'm giving it ...more

Pamela Clare is by far one of the brightest stars in the romance firmament. Every single thing a reader could want is contained in each one of her books, and "Untamed" is the perfect example.

Do you like realistic historical? Clare envelopes true, sometimes gritty historical facts, events and people in a fictional story so deftly that one doesn't even realize there is learning taking place. Do you like strong characters that stay true to the nature written? Her characters are some of the most su

Astounding roman bien écrit! (Astounding well written novel)

Pamela Clare has done it once again! I loved the first novel she wrote in this series Surrender and this one "Untamed" is yet another enthralling story. I fell in love with Morgan MacKinnon,when reading the previous book continued to enjoy him even more in this novel. It's hard not to fall in love with these Scottish manly warriors.Let me just say, I’m a sucker for tortured hero's. Morgan definitely plays that role.Loyalty is what gets

A heartwarming wonderful historical romance, 4 1/2 Huge Stars.

This series belongs to the very best. Every time I opened this second book in the series, I realized I love everything in it. The author, Pamela Clare, has given me wonderful main and second characters. I also enjoy to read the scottish/english speaking in the dialogue and of course all about the brave MacKinnon's Rangers.

Original review: www.sweptawaybyromance.blogspot.com

Untamed is Morgan MacKinnon’s story. After Iain has found love with Annie, it is Morgan’s turn to give his heart to a courageous woman. The following quote is from a review of a friend of mine on Goodreads:


“Where Iain's story focused more on action, adventure, and survival, Morgan's story focuses on one of the grayer aspects of life-loyalty.” (Kristen, Goodreads

Untamed, the second in her MacKinnon Rangers trilogy continues soon after Surrender- the first in the series- left off. Morgan, Ian MacKinnon's younger brother (Surrender), is now leading the Rangers- that band of Scots and Irish warriors who have learned to make war like no other in the colonies before the establishment of the United States. A band impressed into service by the sneaky Wentworth- King George's grandson- to fight for the Brits during the French and Indian Wars, even though, as Sc ...more

I'm not sure why but I just didn't like this one as much as I did book 1.

Possible reasons:

1) Probably because I started it right after I finished book 1 and for this very same reason everything just seemed more of the same... I should have left some time in between or read a book from another genre before starting this one.

2)I completely adored the hero and his family but this heroine was not of my favorites... She was just too nice and goody-goody while he was the warrior type, the one who got

I didn't enjoy this one as much as "Surrender" (book #1 in this series). The characters weren't as compelling and it dragged in places. Having said that, the author did a nice job changing the plot around for Morgan (brother #2). Having him captured by the French and held prisoner, how he met Amalie, courted her, etc was vastly different from the first book. Kudos!

However, the characters just did not hold my interest and I was upset with how the plot unraveled. I did not care for the ending--at

This is good follow up. However, due to the fact that I read Surrender and Untamed back to back, I can't help but noticed some similarities, especially a few dialogues and phrases that were spoken between both the H/h. This also make a lesser impact to me than Surrender because it lack momentous scene. There were a couple of scene from Surrender that etched in my mind, but Untamed didn't have that. Nonetheless, Morgan still deserve a 4 stars. I think is unfair that I keep comparing him to his el ...more

Another wonderful story that I couldn't put it down

After reading two books from MacKinnon's Ranger series, I'm asking myself.."Why did it take me so long to read her books?" I never thought I would love her books. Frankly speaking, her previous cover art make me turn off to read it. Again, I'm wrong. She is a wonderful storyteller.

I loved everything about this book! The author makes you feel as if you were there.

Strongly recommended.

Bk 2 in MacKinnon Ranger trilogy. Morgan MacKinnon (A Scot) is now in charge of the Rangers (Ian wed Annie and quit the Rangers). He is captured by the French and forced to help them and while he is there h falls in love with a convent-bred French girl Amalie. He wants her, but he must find a way to get back to his post. Great love story. And another hot one too. Looking forward to more of Pamela's stories.

Another fantastic Pamela Clare book!! I love how her brilliant writing ability transport's us to another time and makes it feel like realtime.

I love and adore the MacKinnon Brothers!!!! Morgan is sweet, sexy, loyal, fun, and did I say sexy and absolutely yummy. Looking forward to Defiant, I preordered my audio book and can't wait for KG to read it to me!!

As much as I love this, Surrender and Iain are my favorite in the MacKinnon trilogy...So far.

I loved this one as much as Surrender. The author has done a great job of using the same setting and characters and using a slice of action of actual events as the backdrop for a great romance, involving two intelligent, lonely people.

There is so much about these stories I love, from the characters (the heroine is innocence itself, but handled in such a way as to not irritate), to small details and descriptions of fortifications, armoury, to plot development (it's small but I really like that h

Och! Satan's arse! This made me laugh every time!

I really liked this sequel to Surrender, however, I think it was a bit dragged out and could have been 50 pages shorter. Morgan was an endearing hero. I can't wait for Conner's story. Highly recommended!

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

I didn't like Untamed quite as much as Surrender, but it was still a 5* read. IMO Ms. Clare was very wise to put Morgan in a very different setting than his brother Iain - that of a severely wounded prisoner who is given the choice of joining the French (thus becoming a traitor) or dying a painful death at the hands of the Abenaki. Obviously, he doesn't die, and he's too honorable to turn against his brothers & the Rangers, so he has to play a very mental game to survive. Morgan also had to ...more

I had high expectations for this book after the masterpiece that was Surrender. I was not disappointed! Clare writes characters with such depth. The MacKinnon brothers are so alike in some ways, but very unique in others. Morgan was incredibly endearing in that he showed a little bit of humor (och, Satan's hairy arse!), and a touch of insecurity (but only where Amalie was concerned, of course). I often found myself wondering how on earth this book could have a happy ending. I kept thinking it wo ...more
