FORBIDDEN LIAISON... Creed Fortune had hungered for Maya Blackstone for nearly a decade, but he'd held back to protect his family's reputation. After all, the press would have a field day if they uncovered a clandestine affair between a Fortune heir and his very own stepsister! Then a heated argument between Creed and Maya turned into a feverish night of lovemaking. Even though the raven-haired schoolteacher melted his heart in ways he'd never dreamed possible, Creed had to find a way to douse their dangerous attraction. Otherwise, the sordid truth could topple the Fortune empire!

Oh my god... i did not like this book at all. i bought this book because i like those forbidden love step siblings, etc. I normally read Harlequin so maybe this is how Silhouette Desires are. But when I read it I was extremely annoyed with the hero and the heroine. First of all, what a CALLOUS hero. The hero "wham bam thank you maam"s her because he wanted to "get her out of his system". He never apologizes for his actions. He keeps obssessing that she is his stepsister, it will be a scandal, etc. etc. But what does he do? He proceeds to continue banging her throughout the book. Keep in mind that the heroine is currently suffering the crisis of losing her mother (not knowing where she is), not being able to be with another man because of the stupid hero and all that. The stupid hero keeps saying how sexy she is, hot body etc. Ummmm... that's not really love... I'm not excusing the heroine either. Throughout the book, she still "loves" the hero even though he treats her like a sexual object! She has no pride that he abuses her like that and even the happy ending is so stupid! anyway, I do not recommend this book at all. sure the sex scenes are kind of graphic and hot but thats all it is. The "love story" between the hero and heroine is non-existent. The only thing I was kind of curious was about where the mom was. But other than that, blehhh..

Maya Blackstone has loved her stepbrother, Creed Fortune, for years, but the marriage of her mother to his father has always made any relationship between them seem impossible, so she's hidden her love. Little does she know, Creed returns her feelings, but has also been keeping his love a secret. Can they overcome society's opinions and weather the scandal in order to finally be together?

I love Heidi Betts! Without a doubt, Fortune's Forbidden Woman is a wonderful example of why. Creed and Maya's star-crossed love kept me absorbed in the book, anxiously waiting for them to give into their passion. Sensual and emotionally riveting, Fortune's Forbidden Woman should be on every romance lover's reading list!

If you love hot romance reads featuring brooding, dominating Alpha Males who are imminently vulnerable to just the right woman, then you will love "Fortune's Forbidden Woman" by author Heidi Betts. The "forbidden woman" in Creed Fortune's life is his younger step-sister, Maya Blackstone. Ten years his junior, and transformed from a shy teen into a lovely woman, Maya has always held a fascination for Creed. He resolutely kept himself at a distance from her, afraid that his feelings would show and cause a disruption in the delicate balance of the Fortune family's personal and public lives. Maya has long adored Creed, never understanding why he was often gruff and abrupt with her throughout the years. An incident from the past, in which Creed rescued Maya from an overzealous date and then lectured her and accused her of inappropriate behavior, caused Maya difficulty in her few relationships with men. A fully-grown Maya, now a school teacher, has a pleasant relationship with a great guy, Brad McKenzie, but she still cannot physically connect with anyone on a sexual level. When her mother vanishes without a trace, Creed contacts Maya with updates on the investigation into the disappearance. Their discussion becomes a heated argument which leads to the heat of passion, and what was long forbidden becomes a blazing affair. Creed and Maya become even more involved as they work together to locate Maya's mother and bring her back home to the family. As the two of them grow closer, Creed continues to tell himself that he can walk away from the woman who has haunted his thoughts for so long, but will his heart ever truly be free from Maya's spell? "Fortune's Forbidden Woman" is the concluding book in the Silhouette Desire (Harlequin) continuity series, "Dakota Fortunes".

This really was a terrific read. The only reason that I didn't give it 5 stars was that I hated Creed's behavior toward Maya in the beginning. The story was good and the chemistry was wonderful....so enjoy.
