Date Read: February 2015
Genre: Historical, Romance
For five pounds in cash, 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 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 went from master of an English shipbuilding empire to fourteen years of indentured servitude in the American colonies. There, he was known as Cole Braden, a convicted ravisher and defiler of women. And 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 attain his ... Sweet Release.

First Thought when Finished: Sweet Release by Pamela Clare was such a slow-burning romance with an emotionally wrenching backdrop of a story. I loved how Pamela did not shy away from tackling slavery, society differences, and romance between two different stations (though not really). It was just a wonderful read/listen from beginning to end. Alec and Cassie were a fantastic match and their slow-burning romance was perfect for the time!

I admit that this is only my second Kaleo G narration (I listened to one of the MacKinnon’s Rangers books on audio). I love his voice! I am going to now have to tackle the iTeam series. He has such a rich voice and his women’s voices are strong not wimpy. Overall, I adored the narration. He may have made me love Alec more!
