Sheff's abusive behavior is first exposed when he and Jamie come across a Catholic funeral, which is illegal in Ireland. Sheff threatens all the attendees, including the gorgeous raven-haired Bríghid. Jamie can't take his eyes off her, and Sheff notices his interest in the young woman.
I had thought Carnal Gift was a strange name for a novel, but it's quite appropriate in this case. Crazy-town Sheff has Bríghid kidnapped and then bestows her maidenhead upon his friend Jamie as a gift. Not only that, but Jamie knows his insane friend is watching through the peephole to see if he, ahem, "opens" his gift by getting it on with Bríghid.
This is just the beginning of a wild ride between Jamie and Bríghid. I loved how they dealt with their religious differences:
Jamie tried not to notice that the cross had come to rest in the cleft between her breasts. "I'm supposed to be angry because you dared hang a Catholic symbol around my neck when you, a Catholic, were trying to save my Protestant life?"
"Then you're not angry?"
"No, Bríghid." He stifled a crazy urge to take her hand. "Where I come from, there are more religions than days in a month. I decided long ago such things aren't worth fighting about. I doubt God cares one way or another how we pray, as long as we make time for it once in a while."
Amen! Religious freedom is one of my favorite aspects of living in America.
I also enjoyed the reason behind Sheff's puzzling switch to sadism.
I'm excited Pamela Clare is writing again after her battle with breast cancer. Can't wait to read more of her masterpieces!
1) Relentless repetition , she gasped and gasped and gasped and if she was not gasping her brothers were , and if she was not gasping she was rhetorically questioning herself to death , I mean this author is literally married to a question mark. I cannot count how many times questions were self directed for drama by every character nor the times someone unexpectedly dashed through a door making everyone gasp gasp gasp!
2) The scenes repeated themselves continuously ... spoiler..... he gets injured nearly dies of fever she cures him low and behold she gets injured nearly dies of fever he cures her . Unrealistic plot everything plays out like a disney movie for the good side .
3)He leaves his horse paints himself an Indian and runs the streets to hunt the Earl LoL ridiculous moment, so fine he has training in the wild of America but acting it out in the streets of London was laughable and not needed!
4) Everything that was done in secret or for someone had to be revealed to them immediately it just sounded so immature!
5) The disney ending again so unrealistic! Everyone and everything works out!?
6) I do not see how crazy an Earl may be to become so obsessed with a peasant when he was having woman left right and centre nor to want to ruin his best friend soooo and to go to such measures , ships beatings soiling himself , absolutely eye rolling ridiculous.
7) Alice was the final hero of the story without her they would have all possibly died yet she is silently brushed aside while the fend for their hides possibly conveniently saved to appear as the younger brother's love interest in a future book so obvious a set up for a future book!
It left me never wanting to read this author again blatantly advertising future stories as was that of Nicholas almost sounds desperate to make sure they got you for the other books, it had the opposite effect on me!
8)Also author seemed to forget what she had written a few lines before ,for example he walked into a pitch dark room no light no window but could see another person's face? He took off his shirt but was wearing it again and took it off again? plus riddled with errors!
The only reason i gave it 3 stars and not 1 was it was nice to find out some details about Ireland and its history I had no idea about. But I cannot go back to this author I could not sit through more gasping and question fest or super rosie ending for one and all!
