Inhaltsangabe: Unlawfully charged with a crime and now fighting for the hated British, Iain MacKinnon disobeyed orders and endangered his brothers and his mission to rescue a woman. And though he sensed Annie was hiding something from him, it was too late to hold back his heart...
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.
