This audiobookIain's accentMe while listeningOMG I can't describe how much I enjoyed this 3I am a HUUUUUUGE sucker when it comes to Highlanders and the narrator did such an amazing job OMG I melted each time Iain or his brothers said anything 3 “Aye lass You’re safe” He held her close stroked her hair his voice a soothing rumble in his chest “I’ll no’ let any man harm you—no’ while there is still breath in my body” SOMETHING ABOUT THE BOOKThe historical settingImagine Braveheart and The Last of the Mohicans blended into one movie XDIt's set in the 18th century in America and we get a blend of British Scottish and Native American people here DI love this because it's just different than the usual regency historical or medieval probably because I haven't read many that are set in America or at this time periodThough I have to admit I wish she wasn't so detailed about the gruesomeness of war in that time SS view spoilerwhat the soldiers were forced to eat pukes hide spoiler

This was the best historical romance I think I've ever read all others pale in comparison Scotsman Iain MacKinnon was a hero unlike any other the bravest kindest most honorable man and sooo sexy too His relationship with the heroine Anniefantastictempestuouseroticloving all that and There were many swoon worthy moments in this one as well as suspenseful ones as Iain and his company of Rangers fought the French and Indians in many tense encounters But this book was mostly about Iain's desire need and growing love for the lovely and courageous Annie Burns formerly Lady Anne Campbell Theirs was a beautiful love story I won't soon forget filled with passion trust and true intimacy Add to that a surprising and tear jerker conclusion and you have a winner of a bookWith Iain having two brothers his Indian friend Joseph and possibly some men from his company of Rangers I can see this series going on and on and that would be just fine with me I knew Pamela Clare wrote awesome romantic suspense but I had no idea she was eually adept at writing historicals The lady can certainly tell a tale I look forward to reading the next one in the series titled Untamed 5 swoon worthy stars
