He was a master of seduction – but no match for the magical allure of the woman he wanted most

Carys knew from the moment she first spied on Maximus in his naked barbarian glory that he was a dangerous Roman centurion – his taut, battle-scarred flesh marking him as a fearless warrior. But her desire for him was as undeniable as it was illicit.

Charged by his emperor to eliminate a clan of powerful Druids in Britain, Maximus never expects his mission to be thwarted by the clan’s ethereal princess, Carys, his daring voyeur. Falling under her spell, he doesn’t realize her true heritage – until he captures her heart as well as her body.

As Carys’s loyalties are twisted, and freedom is no longer her single-minded obsession, an avenging former lover threatens to crush Maximus’s people into oblivion. Now Carys and Maximus must overcome the devastation of war and face the ultimate sacrifice if their forbidden love is to survive.

Forbidden was previously published by Penguin US in 2010

They became lovers even before they formally met as Carys the Druid high priestess watched Tiberius Valerius Maximus the centurion leader bathe though she knew real lovemaking between them would be forbidden. When the pair meets in person, they relish their lovemaking that she knows is better than her fantasy, but both know nothing can come of it so each enjoys the moment. When Carys and Tiberius realize they are in love, neither knows how to make it permanent as their relationship is taboo. However, though they part insisting this time is the last time, fate intervenes to constantly bring the Roman charged by the Emperor to destroy her clan and the Celts time after time together. Each wonders if they are meant to be. However they are trapped in the crosshairs of a deadly war that could devastate all of Cambria. Her acrimonious former lover High Druid Aeron dy Ehangwen vows to kill Carys' barbarian lover, the rest of the Roman invaders and their clan's perfidious princess sleeping with the enemy even at the cost of the people. Set in the time of Caesar, Forbidden is a fabulous erotic ancient historical romance as the two adversaries fall in love. She fears the Eagle of Roman will destroy her beloved culture as Rome assimilates them before superseding the local heritage. With a sense of time and place, fans will enjoy the taboo romance between the Druid and the Centurion. Harriet Klausner

What a story! Phillips has created a tale steeped in history and mythology that really captured my attention. I loved how she developed religion and culture in detail, really giving me a feel for the time in which the characters lived. At the same time, she wasn’t afraid to bend social conventions to allow her characters to really stand out and be themselves. The plot was exciting and really captivating. The descriptions and narrative were written in a manner that highlighted the events while also creating a wonderful, yet dangerous, world to get lost in. This novel is very hot. Phillips’ erotic scenes were both emotionally poignant and extremely hot. Not only did they leave me swooning, but they also added to the relationship between the characters. The relationship between the main characters wasn’t made easier through this, but it was definitely made hotter. I loved the star crossed lovers aspect to this story. It was a whole lot of fun getting to know the main characters as they became further acquainted with each other. The mixing of personalities and of cultures was very poignant. This scorching hot novel is a fantastic introduction to Phillips’ series. I definitely wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to others. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.
