I enjoyed this book tremendously. The age difference between the two main characters was a little much, but I still enjoyed the book.

This is a very good book. The raw emotion depicted in the characters is amazing. This is the first book I have read from this author, but I must say it is very good. There are a couple of steamy scenes but it's more gentle and loving. I would recommend this for anyone who wants a book about true innocent love.

When Megan had last seen her guardian, handsome, aristocratic Justin Brant, she had been a rebellious child, and he had seemed a stern, forbidding figure. Now, at seventeen, she was a breathtaking beauty, beneath whose dewy innocence lay the promise of unawakened sensuality. For the first time, they met as man and woman. Their desire for one another blazed into white-hot passion, demanding to be fulfilled, though Megan knew she had given her body and her heart to the one man in the world whose bride she could never be!

Without a doubt, Karen Robard's understanding of the human heart and its disquieted yearnings for taboo love make her characters disarmingly believable, sympathetic and appealing. However, what clearly distinguishes Ms. Robard's writing of erotic fantasy from those of other romance novelists is her ability to articulate honest naked expressions of passion and love without resorting to crude, prosaic hackneyed phrases which would otherwise trivialize the purity of the love between her protagonists. Ms. Robard possesses a unique ability to elevate sex beyond raw, desperate hunger into something beautiful, heavenly, almost sacred. Even the adulterous affair becomes forgivable, acceptable and desirable. Readers of "Forbidden Love" will come away longing to be a character - any character - in the novel if only to briefly witness the heart retching aches of the star-crossed lovers and secretly wish that their love does prevail.

This is Robards at her best. A tumultuous romance that is set in England, I think in the Regency period. Her earlier novels like this one are the ones to read.
