Broken on the inside: Megan Hunter has worked hard to get back on her feet, leaving the nightmare of her teenage years behind. The last thing she wants or needs in her life is a man. But when she is attacked by someone from her past, a scarred stranger intervenes, saving her life and that of her little girl. Looks can be deceiving, for despite the man's rough appearance, she feels safe with him. And for the first time in her life, she knows the stirrings of desire.



Broken on the outside: Nathaniel West paid a high price serving with the Marines in Afghanistan. He returned to his family's ranch in the Colorado mountains to heal-and be alone. Disfigured as he is, he has put all thoughts of sex and romance aside. But something about Megan brings him back to life, heats his blood, makes him feel like a man again. As danger pursues her, and the truth about her past is revealed, he vows to protect her-and to heal her wounded spirit.

But confronting the past is never easy-especially when it's carrying a gun. Megan will have to learn to trust Nate to survive and to claim a passion that is much more than ... Skin Deep.



Karla’s Review

5 Gigantic Stars! The Boys Are Back In Town!!!

Yes, they are and there’s a new boy ridin’ with the posse…Nathaniel West, former Marine, rancher and Marc Hunter’s worst nightmare. Nate’s got his eye on Megan, Marc’s baby sister, who he rescues from the clutches of her drug-addicted ex, Donny. Now Megan’s making eyes at Nate and Marc’s not happy because no one can take care of his sister as good as he can…so he thinks! Let the pissin’ contest begin!!!

Pamela Clare does it again! I could not put it down, and stayed up until the wee hours of the morning to finish! Beautifully written story about 2 people who are trying to piece themselves back together, each having suffered from tragic events that now shape their lives. Megan is trying to build a life and home for herself and her daughter, Emily. She still deals with the shame of being a recovered drug addict and letting her brother Marc take the fall when she killed one of the men who raped her in prison. Nate is healing from a horrific incident in Afghanistan, in which he was severely injured, burned and it has left him permanently scarred. He also suffers from the mental anguish of losing his comrades and watching the other men that were injured deal with their own living hell. Then he meets Megan, albeit not under normal circumstances. They have chemistry and both are willing to explore the possibility of something more, they are perfect for each other, much to Marc’s dismay. Oh that Marc…or shall I call him a mother hen…his patience is about to be tested!

Jack, Nate’s father, and Emily form a loving relationship of their own and these two delightful characters added depth and emotion to this novella that reads like a full-length novel. Terrific dialogue, suspense, humor, the involvement of all our favorite characters…”Uncle Julie”…*snicker*, a heartwarming feel-good tale, a fantastic epilogue, make this a must-read for fans of Pamela Clare’s I-team series, or for that matter anyone who wants to read a gem of a book!

On top of all this, there is a short story, Marc and Julian Make a Beer Run, where the “posse” work their magic once again, as they come in guns a-blazin’ to save the day! This unlikely band of brothers had me laughing and smiling, I wanted to jump into the book and hug them all! What a treat!

I LOVE YOU MARC HUNTER…and if Sophie ever leaves you, I’ll be right here waiting for you *smooches*. She won’t, but one can dream *sigh*!

On a more serious note:
In this novella we read about a fictional character Nate who suffers from the effects of going to war, being a soldier and serving his country. Every day around the world, the life of Nate and his comrades depicted in this novella is “real life” for the men and women who serve in the military. They struggle to overcome unimaginable changes in their lives, physically and mentally, families are torn apart and all too often the financial impact is devastating. So maybe take a week, brown bag it to work, make your own coffee, have that Friday night dinner at home, or even do a re-read instead of buying a new book…send that money you saved and support an organization that supports the military in your home country.

Two that I support myself are the Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund http://semperfifund.org/ , my brother was a proud Marine, and the Wounded Warrior Project http://www.woundedwarriorproject.org/ , or just take the time to thank someone whose served.

Pamela Clare’s books are always a joy to read, but she also brings our attention to issues that are often overlooked…so, thank you!
