Publisher's Summary

For five pounds sterling, the convict was hers. Though Cassie hated the slave trade, her Virginia plantation demanded the labor, and she knew this fevered man would surely die if she left him. But as his wounds healed, and as his muscled chest bronzed from the sun, Cassie realized Cole Braden was far more dangerous than his papers had indicated - for he could steal her breath with a glance or lay siege to her senses with a touch. Abducted, beaten, and given a new name, Alec Kenleigh went from master of an English shipbuilding empire to 14 years of indentured servitude in the American colonies. There, he was known as Cole Braden, a convicted ravisher and defiler of women. While he longed to ravish the auburn-haired beauty who owned him, he knew his one hope of earning her love - and his freedom - was to prove his true identity. Only then could he turn the tables and obtain his sweet release.
Contains mature themes.

Wonderful Story and Narration

How did I miss this Pamela Clare Trilogy? I don't know but I'm better late than never!

Pamela Clare's writing always has detailed history, emotional story, tender romances, and memorable characters. Kaleo Griffith's narration adds so much dimension to her stories. He manages to give each character a unique voice and his inflections are spot on. Love this author/narration combination.

I will be listening to the others in this trilogy because PC's books get better as the series progresses. I've never been disappointed with her books. :-)

Exceptional Author - Story - Narration!

One of the best books I've listen to in a long time--NOT your cookie-cutter historical romance story.

The author brings her characters to life - makes you love some and hate others. Pamela Clare has the ability to transport you back in time; to clearly picture the people and setting. The clarity with which she portrays the era, it's prejudices' , injustices, etc. is truly remarkable.

Kaleo Griffith gave a terrific performance; the presentation of women, men and children voices, the accents were easily distinguishable and brought them to life. It was a perfect marriage of author and narrator.

I can't see anyone who enjoys historical romance not LOVING this book. Although the sexual content is detailed, it flows within the telling of the story of Cassie (plantation owner) and Alec (wealthy shipping magnet and indentured servant).

I highly recommend "Sweet Release".
