"Walk in beauty, Gabriel Rossiter."


"The wind knows you. You're a man of this land, of the earth."

The cynic and bitter Gabe Rossiter, a park Ranger in Boulder, does not believe in love and HEA anymore. Love, romance, and sex--it's nothing more than chemistry, and he prefers casual sex without any commitment. For the past three years Gabe risked his life for nothing. Three years wasted on crazy climbing--he did climb routes no one else would dare to touch--and

Though I liked this one I didn't like it as much as some of the others. It was a bit slower for one and for two the hero and my son share a name. So hearing the audible narrator guy moan my son's was just odd. I just had a hard time staying connected to the story. I will say that if the hero was named Tom or Bob or Mike or something I would have liked it a whole lot more.

4.5 stars!


When it comes to series, most books I read have lost their appeal with each consecutive book but that’s not the case with the I-Team series. Each book is more enjoyable than the last and even with the same cast of characters and reader expectation of nail-biting suspense along with heartfelt romance, no two books in this series reads the same. They’re all so well-researched and it’s easy to tell the author has taken the time to hone her storytelling abilities so she consistently delive

Another 5+ Star read from Pamela Clare!

There are just some authors who know their stuff, and Pamela Clare is one of them. Honestly, her stories never cease to amaze me! They are action packed and believable, addressing topics close to home that we only hear or read little bits about in the news. Regardless of the subject matter, I love how she imparts information, giving us more insight into what the characters are dealing with while keeping us fully engrossed in the story and invested in them a

Probably the BEST book I've read this year! I just looooved the H/h (park ranger Gabe and Navaho newspaper journalist Kat) in this one. What a super-couple! So emotional, so gut wrenching, so suspenseful...what an awesome writer Pamela Clare is. The tears I shed over this one. My only complaint--there's not enough PC books out there! Oh, if she could only be as prolific as Lora Leigh...

Okay, so Dorsey tells me to listen to the I-Team series on audio, and since she knows what I like, I do what she tells me.

That begins an investigation that leads down some curious and dangerous paths.

Naked Edge is a great romance book from the very talented Pamela Clare. The book tells a wonderful romance story and takes you on a thrilling ride as you try to decide who is after the lead couple. The end of the book is amazing and will have tears running down your face because it is so emotional.

First and foremost, I have to talk about Clare’s storytelling abilities. Not only does each subsequent instalment get better, but Clare manages to keep things fresh in every book. Naked Edge to me, is more raw, more elemental and spiritual as it showcases Kat’s Navajo traditions and beliefs. It was so vastly different from the other books, but still very much engaging and riveting!

I loved that Clare made Kat’s background a major aspect of

I so love Ms. Clare's books! I just love how she can describe a man's 'heavy testicles' is such a way that it sounds so 'caveman' and yet so sexy at the same time!
Great story! Loved how Ms. Clare incorporated Katherine's American Native traditions and culture throughout this book, and how responsive and accepting Gabe was.
Excellent characters and writing! Love the whole I-Team supporting one another in crisis situations, and I really like how Tom wasn't 'such an assho

(To say I was thrilled is an understatement!) I have to wonder what people must of thought I was reading. I was either dabbing my eyes with a tissue, grinning ear-to-ear and laughing, biting my lip as the suspense built and built, or just blushing because this book was steamy HOT.

This book had it all, great story, action, suspense, mystery, jaw dropping moments as well as heart wrenching and happy moments too. The H&h were fantastic characters with wonderful chemistry. The heroine Kat was a total innocent when it came to men and Gabe was so tender with her when the time was right for them to join.

This is the fourth in the I-Team series by Pamela Clare. I've differed from most of my friends in that I've been less than wow'd by this series. I'm a huge fan of PC's historicals (Untamed is my favorite), but, although the heroes are amazingly, fantastically, sexily awesome, I'm not feelin' the I-Team.

Enter "Naked Edge". Definitely the best story of all of the I-Team series. Straight forward, extremely plausible, but not a cliche. Action oriented, with a lot of extremely evocative writing that

Naked Edge by Pamela Clare is the fourth book in her I-Team series and just as strong and entertaining as the others. This romantic suspense is a little heavier on the romance than the suspense, but there is also a lot of information on Navaho traditions and lore, rock climbing and investigative reporting. The plot blends all these pieces together in an extremely interesting story.

Katherine ‘Kat’ James is a Navaho journalist working in Denver on the I-Team and continuing to follow her traditions

I had heard wonderful things about this book and am so happy to say that I wasn't disappointed. Here's how much I enjoyed it: my daughter has a double ear infection and is throwing up and not eating or sleeping, and when she finally goes to bed I should probably get some sleep ASAP. But instead, I stayed up until 1am to finish Naked Edge. Once I got to the last 50 pages, there was no way I could put it down.

All in all, an awesome book, and one I definitely recommend to fans of romantic suspense.

Pamela Clare writes the perfect balance of romance and suspense!


It's been a while since I've read this series because I was so hardcore in love with Marc Hunter from Unlawful Contact, that if I went right into the next one I knew it wouldn't be fair to the characters. I'd be comparing them to Hunt and his Sophie. Man, did I make the right and wrong choice!

I was right in that I needed the distance, but wrong in why the hell did I wait so long to come back?!?!?

Second read...

Good really, really good.


I just finished the book and wiping the tears out of my eyes! Pamela, you have out done yourself with this one!

What an incredible book. Five stars are not enough!

I really did not want this book to end only because I knew the wait for the next book will be a long one.
I have recently discovered Pamela Clare, and boy am I glad I have!! I have seen others compare her to Christy Reece and Cindy Gerard for her ability to write suspense. IMHO
Opening Line: "Gabriel Rossiter unzipped his pants only far enough to free his…"

Well, what can I say? Another fantastic addition to the I-Team series (#4) I’ve come to the conclusion that Pamela Clare can do no wrong, as each book in this series is unputdownable. Just excellent romantic suspense that never dumbs down the reader. Actually I think that’s what I appreciate most about her writing (besides the smoking hot love scenes) the fact that Clare writes a clever story with characters you can
Re-Read August 28-September 2, 2013

I didn't care for this book as much the second time I read it. Kat's character got on my nerves. She seemed to cry too much. I thought of Gabe as more of an ass. Go figure? I thought there was a lot of telling what happened in this story in lieu of showing and that kind of bugged me, too.

Not changing my initial rating of 5 stars though.

I absolutely LOVED this book :) :)

I have been meaning to start this series for ages and I will admit this is my first one even though it is book 4 in the series.

I really didn't feel lost without starting at the beginning, even though other characters were mentioned from previous books.

He is so sweet and protective with Kat.

Kat is a strong independent woman. Who is determined in everything she does, be it work or relationships. Surprisingly enough she didn't annoy me either at any aspect
Lately, I've been fortunate enough to find some amazing books, but this is by much my favorite read of the year so far.

What an amazing story!

As many of you guys know I'm Colombian, so I don't really know much (more like nothing) about the American Indian culture, so for me, the ceremonies, beliefs and way of life described in this story were all pretty much new, and one of my favorite aspects of the book.

Could Kat be any more innocent and sweeter? Could Gabe be any more sexier and hot? Could I be any more engrossed in the I-TEAM series?
The answer is: I HOPE THE HELL NOT!

I'm having a torrid love-affair with the I-Team and I wont be denied all the sexiness, hotness, suspense, drama and HEAs Pamela Clare is so focused on giving me.

Naked Edge was a pleasure to read. Book four of Pamela Clare’s I-Team series focuses on reporter Kat James and park ranger and rock climbing god Gabriel Lassiter.

I found the book interesting because of the native Indian perspective. The main character Kat was deeply spiritual and followed many of the native traditions. I loved how the coyote would appear when something was about to happen and how Kat would make an offering of corn pollen to keep the bad spirits away.

Naked Edge was flawless!

To be quite honest, I am a bit lost for words. I have become quite the professional stalker when it comes to Pamela Clare and I have read enough of her notes to know that she is relentless in researching for her novels and that in some cases the story lines she writes about have actually happened to her in real life. So when I read her books I’m not merely caught up in the drama, action and hot, steamy sex but I am gob smacked knowing that some of the things actually too
Aho! What a story. Great romance,awesome characters! I loved the cultural details of the Navaho /Dine people and that the main female lead is such a great representative. Her relationships with her family, her grandmother, Grandfather Red Crow and the I team sang with her spirit of integrity and humility. LOVED Kat. I cannot imagine a better balanced couple either, with Kat's wisdom and tolerance of Gabe's rigid rules of no touch, no talk and no real contact...Rather than think of herself, and s ...more
