Goodreads Summary:
In the unforgiving Mesopotamian desert where Jayden’s tribe lives, betrothal celebrations abound, and tonight it is Jayden’s turn to be honored. But while this union with Horeb, the son of her tribe’s leader, will bring a life of riches and restore her family’s position within the tribe, it will come at the price of Jayden’s heart.

Then a shadowy boy from the Southern Lands appears. Handsome and mysterious, Kadesh fills Jayden’s heart with a passion she never knew possible. But with Horeb’s increasingly violent threats haunting Jayden’s every move, she knows she must find a way to escape—or die trying.

With a forbidden romance blossoming in her heart and her family’s survival on the line, Jayden must embark on a deadly journey to save the ones she loves—and find a true love for herself.

Set against the brilliant backdrop of the sprawling desert, the story of Jayden and Kadesh will leave readers absolutely breathless as they defy the odds and risk it all to be together.

  1. Thank you for choosing this book. I just finished it and loved it. Would love to own my own copy so I can read it again. I see we have a LONG wait until the sequel. :(

    1. Hi Misti,

      I'm super excited to know how much you loved FORBIDDEN! Unfortunately, the second book isn't out until 2016 (Harpercollins is delaying it, I'm working on revisions with my editor right now, but Fall 2015 was packed with titles and since I'm a new YA author (although I publish MG with Scholastic) they're putting it on the Winter/Spring list. I'm disappointed, too!) I promise you'll love it. More danger, twists and turns - and you know Jayden has to get to the frankincense lands! :-)

      If you or Beth have a couple of minutes one day to write a brief review of FORBIDDEN on Amazon I would be so very grateful. Reviews, I'm learning are super important for YA books. :-) Thank you, thank you!!

  2. Hi Beth, thank you SO much for featuring FORBIDDEN and for doing a giveaway! I'm very thrilled. If I can ever do anything for you; give away swag, etc, let me know! Thanks again! Happy Weekend!
