Publisher's Summary

To protect her brother, Bríghid offers her innocence to their hated overlord's friend, Jamie Blakewell. Jamie has long thought his friend Sheffield Winthrop Tate III, now Lord Byerly, to be losing his sense of honor. Now he knows that there's something wrong with Sheff. He plays along with the madman's scheme, vowing to keep Bríghid safe. Jamie's tenderness and concern for her people are Bríghid's undoing. There is no way she can hate the Englishman when his kindness prevents him from truly claiming her as his possession. Walking the fine line between love and hate is more dangerous than anything she has ever done, and the temptation to surrender to her enemy is too strong to resist.

Contains mature themes.

Critic Reviews

"Clare writes a sizzling captive/captor romance reminiscent of classic Johanna Lindsay, a story steeped in sensual fantasy, strong characters and intense emotions." (RT Book Reviews)

Great Series!

This second book in the series continues with the Blakewell/Kenleigh Family and features Jamie and Brighid. This book is filled with Irish, English, and American History that surrounds an unforgettable story filled with courage, suspense, loyalty, romance, and love.

If you love historical romances with a great story then give this series a try. I highly recommend any book by Pamela Clare.

narration was great, story a little too long

The narration was great, but the story was just a little too long for me (more angst than their needed to be). When I first read this book it was ten years ago and was in my twenties. I absolutely loved it and gave it 5 stars. However, now that I'm in my thirties and have kids of my own, there was just a little bit too much angst for me. I think the difference might be when I read it the first time the Publishers thought it was too long (I now agree with them) and made Pamela Clare take out all the parts about Nicholas except for the barest mention during the book and at the very end. Maybe that's all that it is, if so I think the publishers made a good decision, even though I remember reading that it really upset Clare. She was exicted when she got the rights back, so then she could put it out in electronic form how she meant for it to be with all the parts about Nicholas. After reading it both ways, I think the Publishers made a really good decision the first time. Don't get me wrong, this is so definitely worth the read, and I will most likely read it again, I just don't absolutely love it like I did last time...I just like it.

A perilous road to their HEA!

This was another beautiful story of a difficult journey to true love. The Hero and Heroine had so many obstacles to overcome. Perhaps the most difficult obstacle was their religious differences. The Hero was Protestant and the Heroine was Catholic. Both their religious laws and government laws prevented marriage between them. In addition, the mistreatments of the Heroine’s people, by the British, was an additional obstacle between them. Even though Jaime, the Hero, was born and raised in the colonies and did not share the prejudices of the British, he was still considered a British subject. To top this off, they were being pursued by a English Lord who was Hell bent on revenge. Mixed up in this mess, Jamie was beseeching Parliament to send soldiers and a navy fleet to aid the colonists in their plight against the French, who had been terrorizing the Colonists. In the end, there is a happy ending but there is a long road of angst and heartache before their dreams are realized. -V from Kansas
