Sasha, a love-thirsty werewolf and rightful heir to the Were throne, is ready to take control over her pack. But when her first love, dragon shifter Damon Frost, lands on her doorstep, demanding their races negotiate ownership over Feralon’’s hot springs, he makes her question more than the fight for the enchanted neutral ground. No matter the emotions bubbling inside her, Sasha can't become involved with Damon. Not now. Not ever again.
Forbidden to step foot onto Were land after a romp with the Alpha’’s daughter as a teenager, Damon has bided his time, waiting for the day when he’’d be accepted back onto Were land. Using the hot spring negotiation as a way to get closer to Sasha, Damon plans to use every minute alone to remind her of the passion they shared–—a passion they could ignite again.
One night of ecstasy stands between them and the fight for the springs. One night of revealing glances, skin searing chemistry, and erotic desires they’’d long buried.
Will one taste of forbidden love be enough to satiate their desires? Or will the need to explore the depths of their love unleash a Were-Draco war?”
Genre: Paranormal Romance--novella
First Sentences: "He was coming for her. No matter the years spent apart or the order from the Alpha of her werewolf pack forbidding them to be together." I really loved the way this novella kicks off. The very first line had me thinking action-packed opening scene, but needless to say the very next line turns that idea on it's head. It's not an action scene, it's a sexy scene! The break in my expectations definitely got my attention and made me want to continue reading. There is yet another small, unexpected twist at the end of the scene as well, which I really loved, but I won't give it away.
Brownie Points: Like the first novella in the Isle of Feralon series, Claimed by Desire, Forbidden by Fate did not disappoint on bringing the heat! The story was hot hot hot! The first sexy scene features Sasha and Damon dancing the two-man-tango beneath the moonlight in a warm, steaming hot spring. The scene was steamy in more ways than one (okay, couldn't resist the joke)! Damon and Sasha's time together was both sweetly romantic and wildly sexy! It was a fantastic way to open on their relationship. The perfect combination for a lover of the romance genre. Damon is delicious and I loved his character from the start. He is sexy, playful, and strong. Hard as he tries to resist the temptation to be with Sasha again, after being banished years before from Were land by Sasha's Alpha father, after coming back to Were territory on official Draco business, Damon's heart quickly becomes putty in Sasha's small but capable hands. Despite orders from Queen Elixa, the Draco queen, he can't resist the temptation to touch her just one last time before he leaves Were land for good.
Beefs: I don't have anything really critical to say about this novella. My only thought was that, even though I really liked Sasha's character, I wanted her to appear stronger in the very beginning of the novella. I like my female Weres to be total badasses and while Sasha definitely had the attitude in her thoughts, her outward actions didn't reflect her true fiery personality until slightly further into the novella. But when her claws (I mean claws metaphorically, by the way lol) came out, she had no trouble winning my respect and taming her dragon-shifter man ;-)
Ending: A satisfying wrap-up. There were no lose threads to this story; everything was nicely taken care of in the end and I enjoyed the ending--though I wished the novella wasn't over!
Recommendation and General Comments: This novella follows suit of it's predecessor in the series--it's a quick, fun, enjoyable read. I didn't want this novella to end and I couldn't put it down. I can't wait for the next in the series! I'm definitely rooting for a future full-length Isle of Feralon novel
I highly recommend Forbidden by Fate. This novella is a great read if you want a quick, fast-paced story to satiate your romance craving! Forbidden by Fate is both fiery and sweet! I definitely recommend it, and the Isle of Feralon novella series, to all fans of the paranormal romance and fantasy genres. If you can appreciate a sexy dragon, or a yummy werewolf, this series is for you!

I loved everything about this book. I fell in love with Rafe and Misty. I fell in love with the Isle of Feralon. I hope Kristin Miller explores more of this world so I can go back.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
