Cover Blurb:

Reunite with the MacKinnon brothers and their wives for Christmas - and a tale of love, new life, and redemption.

The war between Britain and the French is finally at an end, and the MacKinnons are looking forward to celebrating their first peacetime Christmas in five long years. While Iain and Annie have discovered that the pleasures of marriage grow deeper with time, Morgan and Amalie find themselves at bitter odds. Meanwhile, Connor and Sarah have a newborn son to cherish.

The family's preparations for the holidays are interrupted when Iain learns that Britain has not paid the Rangers for the summer's victorious campaigns. Unwilling to let men who fought under the MacKinnon name suffer deprivation at Christmastime, Iain, Morgan, and Connor leave the warmth of their frontier home for Albany. There, they find their happy Christmas, and even their freedom, at risk at the hands of a ruthless British officer who holds a grudge against them.

With the men gone, Annie, Amalie, and Sarah do their best to prepare for the festivities despite differing traditions, a raging bull - and the gnawing fear that their husbands won't make it home in time for Yule.

Events begin the day after the epilogue of Defiant ends. The story includes Joseph, Killy - and revelations about the fate of Lord William Wentworth.

Neato!!!!!


♡Karlyn P♡ (karlynp) | 39 comments Very exciting! Any idea how much this will go for? I assume somewhere between 99cents & $2.99. I wish Amazon allowed pre-orders on these self-pub books, but I'll mark my calendar instead.

It'll be $2.99, but I'm not sure when/if pre-order will be available.


Lynsey A (lovesdarcy) | 71 comments Didn't Pamela say it would be available by the 27th? If so awesome! That will be my reading material as we travel to my dad's for turkey day! :)

It's out already on Smashwords, too. Get it! Get it fast!

I have to wait until these people I live with stop pestering me to read it. I need some hot tea and a comfy chair and some peace and quiet and I'll be set. :D

Finished it! So good. I loved that we got the POVs of so many of the characters. It was the perfect visit with all of them.

Here's my review: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...

♡Karlyn P♡ (karlynp) | 39 comments This was such a fun story, but it leaves me really wanting another MacKinnon book BAD. Anyone know what book is next for PC? Another ITeam, MacKinnon, or something else? Right now, really hoping Joseph's story is next.

I know, right? I don't care if it's Joseph or Wentworth, they're both intriguing.

Spoiler:

I love that (view spoiler) LOL!


Lynsey A (lovesdarcy) | 71 comments I'm hoping it is a new MacKinnon books. We just had an I-Team. Although, I wouldn't complain if it was I-Team either. It is Pamela! :)


♡Karlyn P♡ (karlynp) | 39 comments I have always been the lone voice who never liked Wentworth, although I have no doubt PC could write him a worthy story that would make even me believe he's a hero. I used to wish she'd kill him off in some gruesome death, but now I am so glad she didn't!


Lynsey A (lovesdarcy) | 71 comments I never really "liked" Wentworth until the last book and how he changed based on what happened with Sarah. I know she could write a book to make him worthy of hero-hood. :)

I've always seen the possibilities for Wentworth. In every book he has a moment where he goes against his upbringing and his own desires and does the right thing.

He almost lost me in Defiant, but then he stepped up, so I'm sure he'll make an amazing romantic hero when PC writes his book.

Joseph, of course, has always been a hero. rawr.

I confess I'm one of the anti-Wentworth gals. Did not impress me in the earlier books. But I know that Pamela Clare will make me love him. I actually liked him in this novella.


♡Karlyn P♡ (karlynp) | 39 comments After Lisa Kleypas turned her horrible character Leo into a real hero (now one of my favorites!!), I am convinced a great author could make me fall for a hero I once hated. So I have faith PC could do it too. People love a 'beauty and beast' themed romance, as well as a good redemption story, so she has a ton of possibilities with his book. Still, I want Joseph's story next!!

Yeah, I hated Leo in the first few books. Now I love him!

Beanbag Love | 298 comments Mod
I really wanted Leo to die in the first Hathaway book. That was one of the only disappointments to me; that he survived it. By his book I adored him.

So, yes, a great author can make a hated character a hero/heroine. But, then, I always thought Wentworth had a suppressed hero inside clamoring to get out.

Enjoy it! Lots of good stuff about Wentworth. Everyone shows up, everyone's involved, it's lovely.
