Sweet Release by Pamela Clare
Narrator: Kaleo Griffith
Length: 14 hrs and 46 mins

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!

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated By Kaleo Griffith / Length: 14 hrs and 46 mins

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!

  1. This sounds right up my alley Felicia, I’m adding to my TBL right now…Sold!
    Welcome back! I hope you had a nice rest, and I totally agree with you, I never want this to feel like an obligation to me. I’ve never post everyday for that reason. If I go more 3 days without posting I feel itchy, and I don’t want to feel like that everyday…lol.
    Glad to have you back πŸ™‚

    • Yep I had to take off so that I didn’t overload my life! It was what I needed and thank god I am in a place where I can do that now πŸ™‚

      Also this was really good . It won’t work for everyone–it was a slow burning romance but I felt it made it richer!

    • It really was just downright good: a great mix of historical fiction with romance in it. It is a romance book (don’t get me wrong) but she tackles some great social issues from the time.

  2. Well, I need this just cause it has KG as the narrator!! He has such an awesome voice for romances, I remember when I listened to Branded by Laura Wright and thought..hmm a male the end of it I was like…oh wow..I think I like male narrators in romance..but I think it’s just I love KG as my narrator..hehehe I have the next in the series by Laura Wright in audio..I waited just for audio, so I could listen to KG..talking about him makes me want to bump that read up on my list…lol. πŸ™‚

    • He does have a yummy voice. This is such a unique series and he gets to break out a LOT of accents (especially in book 2 which I am listening to now). I do that with quite a few series. I just have to listen to the audio because the narrator has so made themselves just that likable to me LOL

    • I am almost done with book 2. I love this series (not as much as the Rangers). It really is different but I love that about Pamela’s historicals. They are very unique.
