I absolutely loved it! I've read so much of these novels and I read them in such a short space of time. I've noticed a pattern with the lead characters that make the stories predictable. The heroine in this one was so different and I've regained my love for Mills & Boon's Modern collection.
Zara is so fiercely independent contrary to counterparts of the same sex in countless novels I've read before. Her only weakness was to the irresistibly handsome Russian oligarch Nikolai. I couldn't fault her there. Though seemingly incapable of a real relationship with Zara, it seemed inevitable that he would fall in love with her ( It wouldn't be a M&B novel if it didn't happen)by the way he pursued her. It was a fast read and never fell flat for me at any point. I read it in approximately three hours (and only because I kept having to get up to do stuff!) Yea that fast!
Sharon Kendrick is one of my fav go-to authors for these romances and I've not been disappointed yet!
REVIEW: FORBIDDEN TO HIS TOUCH by NATASHA TATE
The heroine's father took the hero in when he was just a boy with no one else to care for him. The thing that made me like this story so much is how the two leads loved each other since the start. His stubbornness, self-loathing and fierce loyalty to her father the reason's why they kept dallying around each other till fate brought them together again seven years after the heroine had departed and her father deceased. It was only a matter of time before suppressed emotions took over and passion ignited. Gosh, I really loved this!
Ms Tate's next novel is entitled A World She Doesn't Belong To and I can't wait for my next read from this author! So good!
