Image of Untamed (MacKinnon's Rangers, Book 2)

The second in the MacKinnon's Rangers trilogy is riveting. Clare cleverly combines history and fiction to bring us a tale full of drama and sensuality, with well-drawn characters and continuous action.

French convent-bred Amalie Chauvenet is orphaned thanks to MacKinnon's Rangers, a band of legendary killers who fight for the British. When their leader is captured, Amalie reluctantly becomes his nurse and is surprised that MacKinnon is not the ruthless barbarian she expected.

Morgan has only one mission left -- to survive. He must return to his men, but his desire for Amalie threatens his resolve. Morgan pretends to switch sides, and when Amalie learns of his charade she feels betrayed, but before she can expose him she finds herself married to him. And when the chance comes for Morgan to escape, he takes it -- and Amalie. Hunted by both sides, Morgan tries to release Amalie from her vows. But she refuses to abandon the man she loves.
