Someone wants the Native Americans off their sacred land. And when Navajo journalist Katherine James and park ranger Gabriel Rossiter team up to investigate why, their passion for the truth - and each other - makes them targets for those desperate enough to kill.

"This highly sensual novel will curl your hair from the sexual activity, while keeping you totally in suspense throughout." (Fresh Fiction)
I can find a book to love in any genre -- a beautifully written classic, an interesting mystery or sci-fi, a trashy romance. Bring it!
STORY (romance/suspense) - The story is set in present-day Denver. Gabe (male lead) is a park ranger/rock climber and Kat (female lead) is a newspaper reporter. There are incidents involving Indians which occur at the park where Gabe works, and Kat (who is also part Navajo), is charged with writing articles about those incidents. What I normally love about this series are the awesome, suspense-filled story lines and the hot, romantic male leads. In this book Gabe is sexy and wonderful as expected, but the rest of the story fell kind of flat. There are bits of interesting Indian history instead of the mystery and suspense I've come to expect from this series.
Another complaint is that the characters have too many flashbacks. This author uses that as a writing style in other books in this series and her characters often talk to themselves and repeat past conversations in their minds, but IMHO her use of this technique occurs too much in this story. Complaints aside, the book does have a nice, wintery, outdoor feel and is still really good. And the ending is great!
PERFORMANCE - Kaleo Griffith, one of my favorite narrators, isn't up to his usual awesomeness in this book. There are a couple times where the end of a sentence is cut off and once where something is read twice. Perhaps it's a production error instead of his fault. I still love his sexy voice, and he's welcome to come over and read the phone book to me anytime!
OVERALL - Quite a bit of cursing and explicit sex. Recommended for females only.
Books Make Me HAPPY
The most descriptive story in the series. I could picture the mountains, almost smell the pine and hear the coyotes howling. While I've loved each book in this series this one has a special place in my heart. Having Native American Heritage the author did a wonderful job merging traditional beliefs in a modern world. The plot kept me guessing throughout. Most DEFINATELY recommend Cat and Gabe's story!
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
Our hero Gabe is just so wonderful. The heroine is too weak for my taste, so not my favorite. Good basic story, but a bit on the dark size. Pamela Clare uses some extremes that I do not care for. Kaleo Griffith could read the phone book and it would be sexy. Great voice and unstands what makes a male very sexy when he reads. He has got the IT that is for sure. Enjoy the series they will not disappoint.
I love the I-team series, but this book was not one of the best. I didn't find it as intriguing as the others in the series. However, I can listen to Kaleo Griffith read a manual on installing fuses and still be hot as ever. I will still read other books, but I was a little disappointed with this installment.
Naked Edge, book 5, in the I-Team Series by Pamela Clare. I highly recommend not only this book but the whole series.Pamela writing is stellar in this series, it has drama, romance, and a story line that keeps you riveted to the story. Kaleo Griffith brings to life the characters of the I-Team.
Without giving a spoiler, one of the lead characters receives a threatening phone call. All I will say is I jumped out of my chair. I did not see that coming and I had read the book first! Kaleo portrayal of the characters is so true to form you cannot help but get caught up in the story
Simply put..........all of it!
I have no clue what the tag line would be all I know is I would stand in line to see the movie.
There are two other books that the author self-published that I would love to hear Kaleo narrate. She also has an up coming book later this year that I hope to see on audio.
Make no mistake between my personality and my attitude. My personality is who I am, my attitude depends on who you are.........
I felt it wasn't as good as Book 3 (MY FAVORITE), but still very good. And the narrator did another amazing job.
When my younger sister learned to read'd beg me to listen as she brought words on the page to life. That's how I got addicted ....
if you want a lot of sexy scenes with a thin storyline this is the book for you.
This review is really for the whole series, as I loved all of them. Pamela Clare did a wonderful job developing the characters...both the men and the women. I think what I enjoyed most is that the the series moved through the different members of the I-team while keeping the characters I already fell in love with part of the story. And Kaleo Griffith is now, by far, my favorite narrator for this genre. I love how he used such distinct, but subtle, voices for everyone, so I always knew who was talking. I was so disappointed when I discovered I had listened to them all. Since then, I have been searching, with no success, to find another series with such great writing, strong & lovable characters, intriguing plots, and steamy sex!
