Ms. Jenkins is truly a talented author. I enjoyed this book and recommend the previous books that have characters associated with this book. check out Vivid, Through the Storm (both historical novels) and The Edge of Midnight (contemporary). Love the storyline, the characters, and the fact its not predictable.

This book was so good. The pacing was great, the storyline was rich, and the characters so interesting I didn't want the story to end. I would highly suggest reading it.

Eddy and Rhine's story was a thoroughly entertaining and enlightening read - as usual - with a bonus update on Rhine's sister, Sable and her husband Raimond LeVeq (Through the Storm)!

Another great read. I love her books and I loved getting a little closure on Sable's story. I will say that the ending felt a little rushed. I wished she would've went deeper into the reunion between the siblings.

This is the first book by Beverly Jenkins that I have read and I really enjoyed it. I do have to admit that I completely judged this book by its cover. I don't think I even read the summary until after I finished the book (I do that quite a lot actually). I assumed based on the cover that this was going to be an interracial historical romance but the story ended up being a bit different than that. The difference was probably even more interesting. This was a book that I ended up reading in less than a day simply because I didn't want to put it down. Eddy is determined to move to California and open a restaurant. She ends up in Virginia City, Nevada after almost losing her life in the Nevada desert. We learn very early in the book that Eddy is tough and resourceful. She doesn't give up even when things looks impossible. Rhine is the man that rescued Eddy when she was close to death in the desert. He is a prominent citizen in Virginia City and owns a successful business in the town. His life depends on his ability to pass himself as a white man. Eddy and Rhine are drawn to each other from the very beginning. Eddy has no plans to act on those impulses for a couple of rather important reasons. Eddy's presence in the town really makes Rhine consider some of the choices that he has made in his life and he make a few changes. I liked the chemistry between this pair and thought that they really proved how much they cared about each other through their actions. This book has a lot of excitement in it in addition to the romance. Virginia City was a wonderful little town filled with wonderful characters. Each town person in the story had their own charm and really added something to the book. It seemed like something was always happening in this town and Eddy and Rhine kept themselves pretty busy both in the town and with each other. I would recommend this book to fans of historical romance. The characters were fantastic and the plot was well executed. I can't wait to start the next book this series! I won a copy of this book from Addicted to Romance.

This novel is such a great example of the awesome story telling talent of Beverly Jenkins. I now own over thirty of Ms. Jenkins books and I have never been disappointed in the reading of any of them. I have not only been entertained by her stories, both historical and comtemporary, but I have been educated as well on historical facts about black america. The main male character of Forbidden, Rhine Fontaine, appeared in an earlier novel Through the Storm, and I have often wondered where he ended up after the Civil War ended. This story revolves around his life choices and his involvement with a wonderfully strong and capable woman, Eddy Carmichael, that he rescues from certain death in the Nevada desert. This is a spellbinding story of love, redemption, and perserverance that strengthens not only this couple and their relaltionship, but enriches the community that embraces them.
