But when the brothers discover the dastardly British never paid their fellow Rangers for 5 years of military service, they know they must right this wrong. So they head to Albany to seek reparation for the men who fought with them. The last time they headed to Albany, they were wrongfully accused of murder and forced into military service, leading to imprisonment and whippings. Naturally they fear a similar outcome, but their bravery compels them to take care of their men.
I continue to enjoy the shades of grey of Wentworth, the man who engineered the brothers' downfall years ago. Can he redeem himself? Earn forgiveness from the brothers?
Pamela Clare, one of my favorite authors, knows how to write strong women. Morgan's wife Amalie uses some of her considerable wealth to buy Christmas gifts to make life better at the farm. One is a massive, unruly bull.
"The bull bellowed and turned as if to run, the sudden motion causing Farmer Fairley to drop the rod. For a moment, Amalie feared the bull would charge the poor farmer, perhaps even gore him.
Without thinking, she stepped between the farmer and the terrified animal, raised her hand, and struck the bull as hard as she could on its nose. "Non!"
It quietened at once, turning its head to gaze at her.
Any fear she'd felt subsided. She took the rope from a startled Farmer Fairley, then chastised the bull in her native tongue. "Comporte-toi bien ou tu seras castre et finiras dans ma marmite!"
Behave, or you will be gelded and put in my stewpot!"
I loved these honorable hottie heroes getting the good lives they deserve.
This is a wonderful novella filled with familiar, and well loved characters. The story picks up right where the last novel, Defiant, ends. Joseph arrives with Killy in a drunken stupor . Killy has fallen in love with a very strong, tall, and curvy independent pub owner, who has spurned his declarations of affection, the reason for his drunken stupor. But, they bring other more disturbing news. Disturbing enough that, despite the Yule just a week away, the brothers must travel to Albany to face a new nemesis, Brigadier General Haviland who has replaced General Wentworth. The wives agree with the decision, but can't help worrying about the danger traveling in the treacherous winter weather, but especially fear that they will be detained and won't make it home for Christmas. Amalie, Annie and Sarah prepare for the holidays, despite their fears.
Ms. Clare's countless historical fans will love this chance to look into the lives and latest adventures of the MacKinnons. They are husbands, fathers and farmers foremost, but still strong and brave and dedicated to their men. A surprise Christmas present, brings a very humorous twist to this story, and the love and heat between these couples adds the perfect touch. I highly recommend this novella, and if you haven't read the stories leading to this one; Surrender, Untamed and Defiant your missing some amazing reading.
This novella was lovely - I laughed, I sighed and I even cried - to me that is as good as it gets in a romance novel.
I was happy to see Killy finally finding love - he has always been a special favorite of mine.
I don't want to spoil anything - but I was delighted that the brothers finally made peace with Lord William. I know he has been a villain, but I was always intrigued by him.
My only gripe was that there was no happy ending for Joseph - but I hope that means he is getting his own story!! And I hope Lord William gets a story too - he deserves it!
All in all this was a great novella. Thank you Ms. Clare for a wonderful update on some of my favorite characters ever!!!
