Genre: Fantasy Romance

Book Description/Synopsis: 

Rohana Frost has had the worst luck. It started when her fiancé vanished without a trace three months ago. Then she lost her job and her car engine died. Her grandfather knew the cure – unlimited time at his cabin in the Adirondacks – where Rohana used to spend her summers as a child. Rohana jumps at the offer, borrows her grandfather’s car, and is looking forward to an uneventful autumn in a serene place.

Betrayed, ambushed, and wounded, Sen Aryn stumbles into what he thinks is an abandon cabin in the Adirondacks to recover. But the cabin’s occupant surprises him unexpectedly. Worse still, those who tried to kill him are still out there looking for him.

Rohana isn’t sure what to think when she finds a stranger in her grandfather’s cabin, but she offers him a place to recover from his wounds. However, those who had been hunting him found him, and Sen had no choice but to take Rohana with him, back to his world.

Rohana is suddenly thrust into the adventure of her lifetime, led by a man she feels a growing attraction for. But then she learns her fiancé may be alive. Will she give into her passion for Sen, or will she remain faithful to her fiancé? And will Sen be able to control his own desire?

Jennifer’s Review:

*I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review*

First of all I have to say that the formatting wasn’t the greatest. There were spacing issues and issues with punctuation, but I can’t tell if some of it was solely to blame on the formatting or if there were grammar issues that should be held accountable too. However, if you put aside the formatting/grammar this is a really great book!

I read a sample of Forbidden and it drew me in from the first chapter. I honestly could not put it down.

Rohana is a sweet person, but I wanted to yell, “What are you thinking?” when she took care of the injured trespasser instead of calling the cops like any sane person would have done. Then again if she had there would have been no story.

Sen, a half elf-half human, ended up seeking shelter in what he thought to be an abandoned cabin after he was ambushed. To his surprise Rohana tended to his injuries and took care of him until he was healed.

Of course that’s just how the book begins and once the Harvesters were added in and I got to see Rohana’s bravery I fell in love with her character. She’s a strong willed and determined person who can fight with anything and everything…including bricks. She’s a breath of fresh air for Sen and it’s not long before he can stop resisting the pull toward her that he’s felt since he’d met her.

Knowing that he would do anything to make Rohana happy he sets off to rescue her fiancé. It’s a journey that brings them closer, but her still feeling guilty of betraying a man who she no longer loved. In the end she has to do what’s best for her. But my oh my what a snow-filled ending it is.

My Favorite Quote: “What do you want me to say, Rohanna? That right now I’d like nothing more than to claim you as my own?” The intensity of this moment was incredible, but no matter what her response was I think Sen would have reacted the same way he did.

My Favorite Laughable Moment: This was more than likely not supposed to be funny, but all I kept thinking was this brings a whole new definition to “Got Milk”, and every time the subject of milking came up I laughed.

Overall, I give this 4 stars!
