Danger Zone

Danger Zone                                 
By Dee J. Adams
4 out of 5 Stars

I receive a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Danger Zone is an extremely well written, high energy, high octane novel that bring you along for a fast paced ride as you cheer for the hero and heroine, laugh, cry and wonder who is behind the sabotage that they keep facing.

Quinn Reynolds is a millionaire partner in a Formula One race car design company who is ready to sell the business, if he can get his older brother and partner to agree. In a last ditch effort to convince his brother, he flies to Los Angeles to meet with his brother while in the set of a movie being filmed about his sister-in-laws career as a race car driver.

Ellie Morgan is the stuntwoman who fills in for the star of the movie. Having been a stuntwoman for ten years, she has experienced both the highs and the lows that her career offer, but it is sitting behind the wheel of the racecar that Ellie finds, what she hopes to be, the next phase of her life. Ellie is held back, however, by a secret that only a few know about, something that could affect her future, permanently.

As with every good book, there needs to be conflict and poor Ellie and Quinn seem to have it in spades. The biggest conflict actually serves to help bring them closer together, as they try to figure out who is out to kill them, and why.

Did I enjoy this book? Yes! Definitely, yes. The story never lost its momentum throughout, keeping me in the story through the very end. Would I recommend this book? YES! If you are searching for a, “can’t put down, page turner” then come to the Danger Zone.

By Pamela Clare

Book one in the MacKinnion’s Ranger Series is a beautifully written, strong story set during the Seven Year War. The story of three brothers, born of Scottish blood and spirit, unbelievable character and strengths, the series casts each brother in a featured role and sweeps you into the war that they have found themselves condemned to fighting in.

Iain MacKinnion, a man guilty of nothing more that coming to the defense of a prostitute, is suddenly faced, along with his brothers, with the choice of a hangman’s noose or fighting for the British Crown, a crown he has no love for. Choosing life, Iain finds himself commanding a group of Rangers, a unit that he has picked of Scots and Irishmen alike. A band of brothers, who have united together to become an invaluable force for the Crown.

Annie Burns, born to luxury in the Highlands of Scotland, her family supporters of the British Crown. As tragedy befalls her family, she is placed in the guardianship of her once beloved uncle who she discovers hides a terrifyingly cruel side. His actions have not only branded her for life, but have also forced her across the sea to a life of indenture for crimes she did not commit. Bought by a frontier couple, she once again survives an attack with her life, and in doing so, finds herself at the feet of the MacKinnion Rangers.

Iain and Annie are faced to work as best as they can together while fighting for their lives as they attempt to reach Fort Edward and reunite with Iain’s Rangers. Forced together, they find it more and more futile to fight the feelings that they are developing for one another.

A beautiful love story that has enough genuine emotion woven into the pages, the MacKinnions leave you wanting more of these Highlander men.

                                                       5 of 5 STARS

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...

UNTAMED by Pamela Clare

 by Pamela Clare

A friend of mine suggested this series to several readers in preparation for a discussion group when the third in the series is released in April She gave me the titles of books one and two, and me being ever so eager to read, promptly went and purchased, downloaded, and read Untamed. Naturally, me being me, I read book two before book one… I know!  Major “Dork” status.  (But at least I know how book one turns out.)

Untamed is set early in American history, during the mid to late 1750’s.  Our hero is Morgan MacKinnion, a Scot who has been –along with his brothers, Iain and Conner- blackmailed into fighting with the British, as one of their specially trained Rangers/ Morgan has led his team of men to a fort that was controlled by the French military when he becomes wounded and captured.

Our heroine, an innocent Officer’s Daughter, Amalie Chauvent who is staying at the fort with the father is soon asked the impossible: to care for and nurse the wounded Ranger back to health so he may be tried and executed for his various crimes in battle.  Amalie takes on the responsibility reluctantly, eventually finding herself developing feelings for the Scot, who represents all that she has come to despise.

During their imposed time together at the hospital, she is asked to investigate him, hoping to use his knowledge of the British armies and their plans to the French advantage. Amalie soon discovers that there is much more to Morgan than she or the Forts Commanders thought.

Would I recommend this book to you? Absolutely! I would, however, suggest reading Pamela Clare’s Surrender (the first in this series, well- first. They do build off of one another, but I had no problem jumping into the story.  So, please, find a comfortable chair,  grab your favorite beverage and a snack, and snuggle up with a hot Highlander for a few hours.

When he awakens sweet passion in a convent-bred, French lass, Morgan MacKinnon finds himself cursing the war that's forced him to choose between upholding his honor and pledging himself to the woman he loves.
