From Publishers Weekly

Clare's lush historical romance takes readers to 1750s New York, where the three MacKinnon brothers, Jacobites sworn to free Scotland from British rule, have settled in exile. Iain MacKinnon and his two brothers, powerful Highland warriors trained in native American warfare, are falsely accused of murder and forced to take up the banner of their enemy King George in the French and Indian War. While on patrol, Iain rescues a Scots woman who calls herself Annie Burns from the French and Abenaki soldiers who raided her home. Annie, who hides a tragic past of family betrayal and indentured servitude, struggles with her newfound freedom and the mixed feelings she has for her saviors—so much like the Jacobite warriors who cut down her Loyalist father and brothers in battle. As Annie's ambivalence gives way to love, Clare (Ride the Fire) explores 18th-century religious and political conflict on both a personal and international scale. While her prose sports a hint of purple, believable characters, scorching chemistry and a convincing setting make this a worthy read. (Mar.)

Pamela Clare does it again! A handsome Scottish hero, Ian MacKinnon is forced to serve the British crown in their fight against the French in the early American colonies. Ian, a Scottish warrior who has also learned fighting skills from the Abenaki Indians, forms The MacKinnon's Rangers - a skilled group of fighting men. During a scouting operation he comes across the bonnie Lady Anne Campbell who is attacked by Indians. Not only does Ian rescue Anne from Indians, but also from her circumstance as a bond slave. Months before, Anne discovers the evil, sick deeds and murder of inncents by her only living relative, her father's brother. So that his deeds are covered up, Anne's uncle has her falsely accused as a thief, arrested, and sent away to America. As Ian and Anne run from the French, the British, and their pasts, their attraction for each other grows. This passionate, sensual, intelligent romance, written in an interesting period in history, is difficult to put down. I read it in one night. A definite keeper! I sure hope Pamela Clare will make this a series, as there are two more handsome, sexy MacKinnon Brothers. Fans would love to know their stories as well.

Lady Anne Burness Campbell was betrayed into 14 years of indentured service after her uncle accused her of being a thief because she knew he killed her mother. She chose to be branded a thief rather than return to her Uncle Bain's house and possibly be murdered herself. Her uncle branded her on her inner thigh instead of her thumb so that she would never be able to sleep with a man without being found out as a thief. Anne was sent to the American colonies where she was sold into service to a frontier couple in colonial New York. Her owners are a harsh couple who beat her often because she does not know how to perform the tasks they expect of her.

One day while she is in the barn milking the cow, she hears gun shots and screaming. Realizing that Indians and French are attacking the farm, she goes out the back of the barn and runs through the snow toward the woods. The attack party sees her and pursues her through the forest, intent on raping and killing her. She slips down a rocky slope where the men finally catch up to her but she doesn't give up and keeps on fighting. Just as she is about to be hurt, a big man comes out of the woods and kills all of the men attacking her.

Iain MacKinnon is an exhiled Scot whose family immigrated to colonial New York after losing everything at Culloden. His grandfather was The MacKinnon, laird over his lands until the Argyll Campbells and English defeated his clan at Culloden, killing women and children as well as wounded men. Iain and his brothers Morgan and Conner grew up on the frontier, learning how to hunt and track along with their Indian friends, the Muheconneok.

Several previous reviewers have mentioned the wonderful characters-- you become so attached to Annie and Iain you don't want this book to end and then feel so thankful there is more to come in this series about Scots on the American frontier. The plot tests them and their love in profound ways and makes for a riveting read. But the best thing is the way Pamela Clare can bring us into her world, touch our hearts and open them up, make us care, make us cry, make us long for more love in the world like this--a love that includes honor, commitment, devotion and passion. This is a story that somehow gets at the deeper meaning of life by its sheer authenticity and power. Bravo! Don't wait to buy this keeper. You will be entranced like everyone else.

I cannot say enough good things about this book!I'd give it 10 stars if I could.Pamela Clare is such a skilled writer that you will be right there alongside Annie and Iain on their journey.You will see the characters and be able to connect with them from the very beginning of the story.Iain MacKinnon is a true hero,everything a man should be AND MORE.He is strong,sexy,courageous and alpha-male to the core,without putting Annie down or treating her poorly in any way.Annie is DEFINITELY worthy of such a great hero and she's got a steely determination to survive-even when she knows the odds are stacked against her she doesn't give in to feeling helpless and turn into a spineless blubbering mess.This girl's got guts,I absolutely loved her courage and her strength of will.

To have great characters can take you far,but a truly great book must have a good story as well,something more than just the tried-and-true conflicts that are enjoyable yet overused.

Pamela gives us great conflict,and because it's not limited to one character only,you will get a good feel for what it might have been like,to be in their shoes,forced to choose between the lesser of two evils.And the love scenes are sizzling hot and refreshingly creative,without becoming sleazy,repetitive or uncomfortable.Iain is HOT HOT HOT!!!

Pamela Clare is an INCREDIBLE storyteller,and I feel this is her best work yet-she has given us a wonderful,memorable story that flows effortlessly,with characters you will come to love.

Her other books are wonderful as well,and keepers every time.
