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.… (mais)

I loved this! I've had a sample downloaded to my Kindle for so long but put off reading it because of the awful cover. It honestly looks like something out of one of my elementary school US history textbooks. But anyway, this was great. The characterizations were wonderful, and I liked them all (aside from the uncle and the dumb generals lol), even Wentworth. Iain was brilliant, and I enjoyed seeing Annie become stronger as the book went on. I'm not as knowledgeable on Native American cultures as I could be, but I think Clare did a good job with that, as well. Both Morgan and Connor were great, too, and I look forward to their books. The French and Indian War isn't covered in fiction as often as other American wars, so I appreciated the refresher. And the camaraderie and loyalty between the men is so sweet.

And...that's hot:

Iain stood in the middle of the road twenty paces before the carriage. Like a Highlander of old, he wore the MacKinnon plaid, his right shoulder bare, his claymore clasped powerfully in his right hand. The long hair at his temples was done in thick warrior’s braids, the rest hanging dark down his back. But the top half of his face was painted not in Gaelic blue but Indian vermilion, and Indian markings decorated his arms instead of armbands. (319) ( )

Surrender
5 Stars
Synopsis:
Forced to serve in the British Army on pain of death, Iain MacKinnon and his brothers becomes fearsome warriors against the French forces in Colonial America. When he stumbles across Anne Burns Campbell on the verge of being raped and murdered, Iain defies his orders and saves her life. But Anne has secrets that may destroy their burgeoning relationship for she is not who Iain believes her to be …

Review:
An exciting mix of romance and adventure set during the French-Indian wars. The first half of the plot is reminiscent of the film The Last of the Mohicans with Daniel Day Lewis (a favorite of mine), and the vivid historical descriptions and language enhance the immersive quality of the story.

The characterization is fantastic. Iain is a magnificent hero (of course, I’ve always had a soft spot for highlanders) and Annie is courageous, spirited and loving. The buildup of their relationship is passionate and compelling. While the “keeping secrets” plot device is not one of my preferred themes, it is neither overdone nor drawn out and merges well into the storyline.

The secondary characters are well-developed, especially Iain’s brothers, Morgan and Connor (who will feature in books of their own – hopefully Joseph will as well), and the villains – one diabolical and the other with questionable morals. The question of whether the latter will redeem himself is one of the more intriguing aspects of the book. The camaraderie between the rangers and their sense of loyalty and community is another highlight.

Surrender epitomizes the best of the historical romance genre. I will definitely be continuing with the series and will probably re-read this one again and again. ( )

I read another reviewer describe 'Surrender' as 'Braveheart' meets 'Last of the Mohicans' - pretty accurate statement. This story reads like a great adventure novel. Superbly written and well-researched. Pamela Clare doesn't disappoint. ( )

The story I started was mostly about people being beaten, shot, flogged etc. so I reread the reviews and wondered if I was reading the same book. Scotswoman Annie, branded by evil uncle and sold to colonies, crosses paths with Scotsman Ian who was forced to fight for British or hang for murder. I quit halfway.
