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.

From the Author:

Dear Readers,

I'm so happy Surrender is available once again, both as an ebook and in print. It's been an epic journey with this story, one that almost saw a premature end to the MacKinnon's Rangers series.

When I originally wrote it, I had to keep a specific maximum word count in mind. That meant cutting some scenes I loved and shortening others. The result was a book that was a RITA finalist (2007). Still, there were those missing scenes...

Eventually, I left the book's original publisher, and both Surrender and the sequel, Untamed, went out of print. I thought that was the end of the series. It was a huge disappointment for me because I love this period of history so very much. Pre-Revolutionary Colonial American history, specifically the period of the French and Indian War or Seven Years War, fascinates me. The mix of cultures, the vastness of the wilderness, the desperate struggle to survive -- these create a vivid backdrop for fiction. I wasn't ready to say goodbye to Iain, Morgan, Connor and the Rangers.

Fortunately, Berkley stepped in and bought the entire series, which meant I got a second chance at both Surrender and Untamed. Both have new (historically accurate!) covers. Both have fresh edits. And both have new scenes and extended scenes. So not only is the series back, but it's been restored.

I am so happy to share it with you!

For those of you who've written to me asking, "Is Connor ever going to get his book?" I can finally answer, "Yes!" Watch for Defiant in July 2012.

And thanks for your support! Your devotion to this series helped to keep it alive.

Yours,

Pamela Clare
