When Carys and Tiberius realize they are in love, neither knows how to make it permanent as their relationship is taboo. However, though they part insisting this time is the last time, fate intervenes to constantly bring the Roman charged by the Emperor to destroy her clan and the Celts time after time together. Each wonders if they are meant to be. However they are trapped in the crosshairs of a deadly war that could devastate all of Cambria. Her acrimonious former lover High Druid Aeron dy Ehangwen vows to kill Carys' barbarian lover, the rest of the Roman invaders and their clan's perfidious princess sleeping with the enemy even at the cost of the people.
Set in the time of Caesar, Forbidden is a fabulous erotic ancient historical romance as the two adversaries fall in love. She fears the Eagle of Roman will destroy her beloved culture as Rome assimilates them before superseding the local heritage. With a sense of time and place, fans will enjoy the taboo romance between the Druid and the Centurion.
Carys knows it's forbidden for her to spy on the gorgeous Roman soldier as he bathes beneath the waterfall near her home, but she can't help herself. She finds herself drawn to him and spends her time dreaming of a day when they can be together, a day she knows will never arrive. When her dream soldier discovers her one day in the forest, she is taken unawares by the mutual attraction they share. Maximus, the Roman soldier she has been spying on, thinks Carys is the most beautiful creature he has ever met. Immediately, he desires her as he has never desired another. While he struggles desperately to make Carys his mistress, she is adamant that she will never be claimed or submit to another. Still, their passion cannot be denied.
Both submit to this secret affair knowing they can never truly be together. Carys is a Druid Princess, her people forced to seclude themselves deep in the forest, because Roman forces have overtaken their lands. Carys hides her identity from Maximus fearing he would hate her and banish her forever if he knew what she really was. As the two become deeply involved, outside forces begin to work against them. Another Druid, and Carys' former lover, will destroy anyone who tries to take her away from him. As if that isn't enough, both Druids and Romans are bracing for battle. A battle that Maximus and Carys knows will tear them apart forever.
Carys is an interesting heroine.Read more ›
Their worlds collide when Maximus saves Carys and carries her back to his compound to recover. Despite their strong feelings together, actually living together is impossible. Not only does Maximus still not know that Carys is a Druid Princess, but Carys doesn't know that Maximus has been tagged to find her people and defeat them and Maximus doesn't know that his greatest enemy is the woman he's falling in love with.
I could be wrong and I often am (not really, but it sounds more humble this way - LOL), but I believe Christina Phillips is a debut author. If she is, wow! FORBIDDEN is an awesome debut and Ms. Phillips is an author who will definitely be added to my list of authors that I must start stalking and keeping up with her new releases. FORBIDDEN has a unique premise and setting that is handling in realistic and compelling way. It never lost my attention, as a matter of fact I started FORBIDDEN when I was recovering from a surgical procedure and should've still been drowsy from the medication I took, yet I couldn't put the book down and go back to sleep.
But enough about that, I suppose you want my review. This is the point where I normally talk about what didn't work for me in a book.Read more ›
