The unexpected happens in an instant. On her way to work, secretary Docia Waverley hurtles into a crashing crossroads, and she quickly begins to suspect that things will never be the same. Then, when a tall, blond, muscular stranger intervenes on her behalf, telling her it is his duty to protect her at all cost, what is just a feeling turns to proof positive. That is, as long as Docia’s savior doesn’t turn out to be a crazed kidnapper.
When Ram finds Docia, he has no doubt that she is his queen. But as this golden warrior sweeps in to protect her, he feels something more than body heat every time they touch. He is overwhelmed by a searing connection that goes deep into the twin souls inside him. A desire rises in him that is forbidden—this woman is his queen, the mate of his king, his leader, his best friend. And yet Docia is so vulnerable and attractive that she awakens a hunger in Ram that is undeniable, a carnal craving he cannot yield to . . . not without risking the very survival of the Bodywalkers.
I have always really enjoyed Jacquelyn’s work. ‘Forbidden’ was a great new world. I have always had a fascination with Ancient Egypt so the Bodywalker theme was really interesting and super fun to read. I think Frank has quite a knack for creating new, suspenseful, sexy, paranormal worlds right in the midst of reality.
The inclusion of such iconic figures as Ramses II and Cleopatra really made this story out of this world. It was a phenomenal read, definitely not repetitive of her Nightwalker series. This is a common fear when authors have several series, but Frank does not disappoint. She has the talent to create new worlds with dynamic and interesting characters that people easily fall in love with.
‘Forbidden’ was a great read and I really loved Docia, she was very relatable and I thought Ram and her were explosive. Lots of twists and turns, it definitely had a great plot.
