This book annoyed me so much even my hubby asked what was wrong. First, the characters take one look at each other and want to jump each others bones to the point of obsession. There's no consensual flirting or emotional connection between the hero and heroine to excuse their blatant disregard of morality, society, and physical safety. The lack of emotional connection between the two made the numerous sex scenes fall completely flat and as well as boring. I skimmed most of them. Second and most
3 Stars!The book is titled Forbidden, if you are expecting a sweet little romance, you would be sadly disappointed. Plot Summary - Vaughn wants revenge on Rufus the Marquess, for being a horrible father (view spoiler)[and for killing his mother (hide spoiler)]. Elisa is marrying Rufus as he has promised to find her son. Vaughn seduces Elisa, they have sex a bunch of times, Rufus finds out, problem, love prevails, social defiance and HEA. My Thoughts - At the outset, if you can accept insta-...
I don't like leaving negative reviews. Normally I try to point out as much of the good as possible but Forbidden was disappointing. The characters fell woefully short and I found there was repetition in place of a plot line which was really annoying. It felt as though every other chapter was a recap of why Vaughn and Elisa needed to justify why their lust for each other was a bad thing. I didn't find it romantic. To be truthful, I got pretty bored and ended up skim reading. I'm not sure I'd both...
This was a 2.5-star book for me.* * *The title of the book is a big clue to the subject of the story: Forbidden explores the almost-illicit relationship between Vaughn Wardell and Elisa, his father's fiancee. After years of estrangement, Vaughn returns to his childhood home to confront his father over the estate he inherited from his mother. It's a reunion that is all bitter and no sweetness -- Vaughn and his father, Rufus, have not seen each other since he was a child -- and the hatred between
No. Just no. Between a heroine who didn't know what the hell she wanted and a hero who didn't understand or respect the meaning of the word no, this book was a hot mess. One minute the heroine is a simpering miss, the next she makes a play at being "spirited" and ends up nearly killing herself. The scene with the horse was the nail in the coffin for me...and that was about 30% in. The supposed sexual tension was so over the top that I lost interest. This book was frustrating and stupid.
Forbidden takes place in England in 1835. Vaughn, the Viscount of Rothmere, comes home to fight his father for his inheritance left to him by his mother. Here he meets Elisa, whom his father has convinced to marry him in exchange for helping her find her son. Poor Elisa has been ostracized from society because of a bunch of lies. Her son has been stolen from her and she thinks Rufus, the Marquis of Fairleigh, can help her.Vaughn and Elisa are helplessly attracted to each other but are embroiled
I usually do not read historical romance books, but this one is really well done. The story focuses on a young woman who has been wronged by her husband. He cheated on her a lot and when it caught up to him, the men decided it was better to make her look bad, than put the blame on him. His death was the start to her problems. After losing everything, his family took her son. The only way she could think of to get her son back is to marry someone of wealth who could search for her son. She though...
WonderfulI love a writer that may be known to other's and others unknown. So she knows her work is good and offers a free book with the knowledge that her newest reader will now become a fan. Well I am impress, I have read more books in the era that you would find unbelievable but this is my greatest hobby. Saying that you have my attention and I wIll be buying what you have to offer. As for those who have not read your work then here is your chance to read it and give your own review. I am sure...
Not a typical storyline, and whew...lots of sexual tension in this one.
A brilliant romance. A brilliant tale of true love Really sad in parts. But happy in others. Very sexy all the way through!
Though they only have one letter in common, love and lust are more closely related than you would imagine.The large, sprawling and stoic structure, known as Fairleigh House, hasn’t changed in the last century or more; certainly not in the last twenty years since Vaughn Wardell, Viscount Rothmere and only heir to the Marquis of Fairleigh, had last set eyes on it. The sight of his childhood home that he left at the tender age of five to spend the next twelve years in one private college or another...
Good bookMy first historical romance in awhile and I was very anxious to read it because I find it hard to find good books in this genre.Elisa is to marry Rufus because he's promised to find her son but her world changes when Vaughn shows up. Rufus despise Vaughn even if he's his own son.I actually liked the story, it was intriguing and sweet and don't forget hot. The writing style is good but I have a little challenge in reading when the words are synonyms that are unknown to me, thank goodness...
Loved it! I loved Vaughn, I loved Elisa, and I loved watching them fall in love. I wanted to knock Rufus over the head with something, anything that would hurt a lot. I loved the ending, that is until it ended. I wasn't ready for it even though I knew it was coming. The ending just felt a little abrupt. To sum it up, I guess you could say, I loved it.
Beautiful Elisa has been egregiously used and abused. Now Rufus, with spider-like cruelty holds her son over her head. If she marries the old man he promises to Try to unite her with her son.So hopeful, she ignores his caveat and jumps into his web. Can his son Vaughn snip the strands and save her?
Sexual tension runs rampant in this story!The sensual tension is tangible in this story almost from the start. The story is filled with tense undercurrents and pulls you along. It is a good page turner, however some of the motives and situations seem to be a little contrived. Well worth reading and I would read more from this author.
A great romance...I enjoyed this historical romance. I hated the things that the main characters went through, but it was all much, much better by the ending. I recommend this book to anyone who love historical romances with a touch of suspense included.
I didn't think I would like this story due to the first chapter, but I really wanted to finish it due to a friend's suggestion. I am glad I continued because the storyline because much more interesting and the pace picked up.
The writing, the storylineThis book was flawless. The characters were so engaging. The storyline was unbelievably emotional and the slow burning romance between Vaughn and Elisa, brought out every emotion I had.
Forbidden a great bookI could not put this book down. I love it so much that I read it in one day. This is the first time I read a book by Tracy Cooper-Posey and she has now become one of my favorite authors.
Love Conquers AllThis was an excellent book. It tells of how innocent people can be abused and shunned by society friends and family. But love is strong and will overcome the adversity that life brings.
CaptivatingI could not put this book down. The writing draws you into this compelling, sensual journey of Elisa and Vaughn.
I did not like the heroine or the hero. The love scenes(?) were mostly gratuitous.
ForbiddenGreat story. I tend to think that that this story could have come straight out of our history books. The ending was the best part of all. Loved it. Highly recommended.
This book kept me spellbound!Any who enjoy historical romance!The one thing that I truly wish would be for the book to be longer to see how the town react to Raymund.
An entertaining story and a nice way to spend an evening.
This book was a true cliff hanger. I couldn't stop reading it , areal page turner. I would recommend this book.
My first erotic novel....storyline was good but I was unprepared for the sex. probably not reading it again.
This book had a slow-mo clap. Need I say more? lol
This story started with a lot of promise, but it never quite delivered for me. Certainly, I expected heated physical chemistry (check), and conflicted feelings (check), but I also expected a developed plot (MIA) and characterization (meh). I was the more disappointed, because I had gone ahead and bought it off a recommended-read list. This is a Georgian-era romance, so we're out of the Regency, but not quite to Victorian England. I don't know if that's why there seems to be so many muddy charact...
