    One thought on “Forbidden”

    1. Updating my review from 2nd April 2016 (see "Safe Gang" section)A warning: This is a very passionately sexually charge romanceexpect this:And this.And more of thisSeriously my head was spinning from all that sexual charge in the book and I have never read such passionate romance sexually and emotionally at the same time! For those who like their romance with a mix of fantasy and history throughout look no further and the good thing is that this book is focused entirely on the romance development [...]

    2. 3 ½ stars – Erotic Historical RomanceThe premise of “forbidden” love between a Roman centurion who’s charged with leading the fight to eliminate enemy tribes in Britain and the princess of a powerful Druid clan who’s gifted with magic seemed like a unique concept for an erotic romance. And I thought it sounded a little bit like the movie King Arthur with Clive Owen and Keira Knightley, which I loved. It started off really good, and the star-crossed love affair between battle scarred w [...]

    3. I Love this book. This reminded me a lot of Anya Seton's Mistletoe and Sword as it was very much about Romans and Druid and a forbidden love between the two. What I did prefer about this was that the Roman way of life was much more brutal, without being overly so. A great read which is being added to my Favourite's!!!!

    4. Favorite Quote: Gods, if he didn’t get relief soon, his balls would explode.Carys, a powerful Druid can’t help herself as she watches a very sexy Roman centurion, her enemy, bathe in a waterfall. She is mesmerized by him, although she she thinks she is being sly hiding, he discovers her watching. It is lust at first sight for both of them, but their lust is complicated. They come from opposing sides – both trying to decimate the other. If she were to become enslaved by the Romans, bloodshe [...]

    5. Carys and her people, the druids, are in hiding from the Roman barbarians that have taken over their land. As a healer and princess, Carys wants to care for those that are sick, but if she is caught by a Roman soldier, she fears being attacked and raped. She prays to her goddess for answers, but hears nothing in return. She is walking a dangerous line when she watches a Roman bathing near a waterfall. She is strangely attracted to him and fantasies about becoming his lover. When the Roman spots [...]

    6. Forbidden by Christina Phillips Historical Romance-Sept 7th 2010 5 stars Forbidden is an amazingly sensual and taunt historical that enthralled this reader. Set in the rough and untamed Roman times it made me want a brawny Roman centurion of my own! Carys is a healer and a Celt Princess destined for great things. But Carys is playing with fire when she is caught spying on the ruggedly handsome and sexy Roman centurion Maximus taking his bath. When Maximus sees Carys he is mesmerized by her beaut [...]

    7. A nice change of pace from the usual historical romance offerings: A Roman Centurion, Maximus, and a Druid Princess, Carys. Two lovers caught on opposite sides of a war. What a delicious set up for a romance!And what opposites they are. Carys - A Druid Princess from a matriarchal line. A cultural that holds women in high esteem, honors their Goddesses above all, doesn’t believe they need a man’s permission. Maximus - Roman, alpha, protective, possessive, sees women as property, patriarchal. [...]

    8. I was really drawn to this book when I first read that it was set during the Roman conquest of Britain, and I am always on the lookout - and a fan – for unusual settings and premises for historical romances. I am also a fan for romances that feature a hero and heroine on opposing sides which Forbidden uses as a backdrop, so when I had read the first couple of pages, I was instantly hooked!Whilst her land has been conquered by the Romans, Carys, a powerful druidess, is being pressured to stop c [...]

    9. Carys has often secretly watched the man that comes to the waterfall, even though she knows that they can never meet. Wanting him will have to be enough, as their dangerous world would forever keep them apart. For Carys is a powerful Druid, forced to hide in the hills as the strength of the Roman Empire tries to destroy everything she holds dear. And the man who has stolen her breath is a Roman Soldier, born to conquer and take what he wants. But when Carys unexpectedly finds herself in his arms [...]

    10. A scorching, breath-taking read! If you want something sexy, fresh and original that will capture your imagination as well as your heart, I highly recommend 'Forbidden'!

    11. 3.5 -4 stars I enjoyed this book more towards the end where there's an actual story instead of so much hanky panky , but if half the Scenes and language was taken out it was be 5 stars but as this is an erotica it was a bit to I can't read this in public or waiting anywhere etc in case someone's looking over your shoulder!?

    12. Forbidden is a sensual journey, a dance between Carys and Maximus as they negotiate the chemistry between them in a time when they are supposed to be enemies, not lovers. It's also a story of how two very different people from very different backgrounds can find common ground with this thing called love.I'm not a fan of enemies to lovers stories for the most part but the setting of this story intrigued me. I am a huge history buff and I love Ancient Rome and the mysticism surrounding the Druids [...]

    13. If you are looking for a light and fluffy romance, Forbidden is not the novel your looking for. Be prepared for a strong story of passion and adventure as two worlds collide. Caught in the middle are two lovers, on opposing sides, forced to either fight against each other or fight for the chance to stay together.Carys knows it’s forbidden for her to spy on the gorgeous Roman soldier as he bathes beneath the waterfall near her home, but she can’t help herself. She finds herself drawn to him a [...]

    14. Review: During the time of Rome’s powerful rule, the emperor sends his army into a land ruled by Druids and into a battle of magic, lust, and greed in which two unlikely lovers become entwined in a romance that crosses boundaries. Cary’s unashamedly watches the breath taking Roman as he baths never believing she would get caught watching him bath. Her attraction to him is wrong because he is an enemy of her people and she is their princess. Maximus captures his little voyeur and in the proce [...]

    15. This is such a great book. A Roman centurion and Celtic princess in the time of Rome's occupation makes for fantastic reading. Their two worlds have collided and instead of hating each other they fall in love. Add an evil Druid hell bent on destroying everything they both love and the magic of the Goddesses and you've got yourself one enchanting read. I'm so in love with Carys and Tiberius Valerius Maximus. They are such a well matched couple. Their chemistry is vibrant, intense and scorches the [...]

    16. This is a passionate novel set during the Roman occupation of the UK. Named Forbidden because (of course), it is the story of love between a Roman officer and a beautiful druid. Carys, the druid, had first seen the gorgeous centurion bathing, and as it was his habit to go to the stream and bathe in privacy, she would often hide in the trees and watch him. Until one day he catches her, and is immediately drawn to the mysterious and beautiful Celt. As the druids have created trouble for the Romans [...]

    17. Omg !!!! This book was amazing. The passion, romance, sex and magic were so well mixed together. I was so drawn to the Love of Carys and Maximus it was so beautiful without it being unrealistic. The magic was very believable and fit so well with the story. The sex was really hot and passionate and I liked how the scenes were so detailed you could picture yourself in that place and time. I also liked how the author took the time to describe exactly what turns a woman on during the heat of the mom [...]

    18. The writing sizzles, but Christina Phillips' real gift to readers is characters with heart and passion. As desperately impossible as Carys and Maximus' love seems, you believe that they have the courage to create a new, shared future. That's the magic -- and the hope -- of romance, and "Forbidden" delivers it.A wonderful, emotional and sexy read.

    19. I don't often read erotic romance, but this book is an amazing blend of well-researched history and forbidden love. Absolutely could not put it down, and I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

    20. It's been a long time since I've read any erotic--I may be getting too old for it, as it just made me tired.
