A historical romance, fairly predictable, but at least the heroine shows some gumption. She ACTS, instead of just waiting for Mr. Right to come along.
From back cover: "I EXPECT YOU TO SHOW MY FRIEND JUST HOW GRATEFUL YOU ARE. YOUR WILLINGNESS IS EVERYTHING.
" With those harsh words, the hated Sassenach earl decided Brighid'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.
My first book by Pamela Clare. It is a good love story filled with the Irish/English conflict. I enjoyed the book and look forward to reading more of Pamela Clare's books.
