True Love

In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.

1 John 4:9

Book Review: Carnal Gift by Pamela Clare

Book 2 in the Blakewell/Kenleigh Series

Want to take a trip to the beautiful emerald isle and be whisked away by a love? Pamela Clare is a master storyteller - she captures your imagination and your emotions from the very start. Brighid is a poor Irish maiden that is hurled into a world of danger and debauchery by a diabolical and tyrannical landlord, who makes her a gift to his best friend in every sense of the word. Brigihid is horrified to learn that she must give up the one thing in her life she does possess (her virginity) to a stranger to save the life of not only herself but her family as well.

Jamie Blakewell is just as shocked to find that his friend Sheff has done such a thing but to save this brave and enchanting young woman he must make his friend believe he has accepted his "gift" in every way. Brighid is saved by the handsome young man and their "act" of feigned passion. But it isn't long before they both realize that they both want much more than just pretended bliss in each other's arms. Both passionate and adventurous you don't want to miss out on this wonderful romance.

This was the very first book that I had read by Pamela Clare but it made me rush out and buy all her other ones. And she is now one of my all time favorite authors. Though this is part of a series you can read it as a stand alone without any problem. I truly was sorry to see this one end and I can safely say it is the best historical romance set in Ireland that I have ever picked up.


"I expect you to show my friend just how grateful you are. Your willingness is everything."

With those harsh words, the hated Sasanach earl decided BrĂ­ghid's fate: Her body and her virginity were to be offered up to a stranger in exchange for her brother's life. Possessing nothing but her innocence and her fierce Irish pride, she had no choice but to comply.

But the handsome man she faced in the darkened bedchamber was not at all the monster she expected. His green eyes seemed to see inside her. His tender touch calmed her fears while he swore he would protect her by merely pretending to claim her. And as the long hours of the night passed by, as her senses ignited at the heat of their naked flesh, she made a startling discovery: Sometimes the line between hate and love can be dangerously thin.
