FORBIDDEN 3: SLEEPING WITH THE ENEMY
Rating: 3 Cups
Akahana is trapped in a relationship with a brutal mate, Gamin, who is about to kill her when she is saved by a man that she soon recognizes as her soul mate. She is not yet ready to submit to another man after the years of abuse she has suffered, but cannot help but be drawn to Taber, the man who saved her.
Taber is a seasoned soldier used to the horrors of battle, but he is sickened at the sight of the warrior raping and attempting to murder a woman in front of him. Overcome with anger he attacks and kills the brutal man and now feels responsible for the victim.
When Taber saves Akahana from her abusive mate, he feels protective and something more towards her. Unfortunately for her, her troubles are not quite over since Gamin is determined to control her life from beyond the grave.
This story starts out with a rather graphic scene of violence but, fortunately, the entire plot is not full of the same. The characters are well drawn, the plot moves quickly, and the sex is very graphic. This is a gripping read.
