Another Pamela Clare book I had a hard time putting down! Good writing, great storyline and tourtored souls...what more could a reader want? I enjoy this era of time being an Outlander fan, it's obvious that Clare has done her research. Her words draw you in and don't let go until the very end. I just wish all male characters could be like Nicholas: Strong, brave, respectful even chivalrous, wrapped up in a handsome, ripped masculine form. (It only happens in books, dang it!)

This story is about finding love when you've denied yourself that feeling all your life. Both our hero, Nicholas and heroine, Elsbeth, (Bethie), come from terribly difficult pasts, never really understanding that their lives could be different. Fortunately, the forces of nature occasionally pull unlikely souls together, and once that bond is made, the overwhelming feelings to protect that love, is a difficult one to break. I will say that I didn't feel quite as connected to the relationship between Nicholas and Bethie like I did with the H/h in book 1, "Surrender". Nonetheless, I enjoyed the tender moments along with the lovely intimacy they ultimately shared; and the discovery that neither one knew how sweet it could actually be.

This is the third book in this series, although it didn't impact the storyline since these books are clearly stand alones. I truly enjoy Pamela Clare's writing and her beautiful way of telling every one of her lovely stories.

 ✿Alyssa✿ YAY! I'm so glad you added this to your TBR pile... seriously Leslie, this book is AWESOME! :)


Leslie Oh, I trust you and love Pamela Clare, so, I'll be reading it, too! :)


 ✿Alyssa✿ I can't wait for you to start it! :) I'll be looking for your status updates!


Leslie Thanks, Kristen! I'm looking forward to it and still need to read Untamed, but Alyssa raved about this one, so I'll start it first. I'm not legalistic about going in order...


Kristen (Peddler of Smut) Don't worry about reading this book out of order. It doesn't really matter if the series is read in order.
