She thought she’d lost everything . . .

After spending months traveling the harsh, unforgiving Mesopotamian desert, Jayden reunites with a broken, injured Kadesh. Although everyone was convinced the violent and unpredictable Horeb, Jayden’s betrothed, killed the handsome prince, Jayden knew in her heart that her love was alive and safe. But their reunion is short-lived, as they learn Horeb is on their trail and determined to take back the girl he has claimed. Soon, the two star-crossed lovers are on the run toward Sariba, Kadesh’s homeland, where, as heir to the Kingdom, he plans to make Jayden his princess.

But the trek to Sariba is fraught with heartache and danger. After narrowly escaping being stoned to death for a crime she didn’t commit, and learning that her sister has disappeared, Jayden’s only solace is her love for Kadesh. But even he is keeping secrets from her . . . secrets that will change everything.

This gorgeous and enchanting sequel to Forbidden, is full of love, danger, and heated passion that will leave readers breathless.

My Review: I'm so excited! I've been waiting forever for this book to come out and screamed like a fool when I got an ARC. 


This start off intense. Jayden is tense from everything that has happened to far. She's on the move and right now is in her tent with her camel, trying to come up with her next move. But things just aren't going so well. She gets attacked, and her cleverness has done her well. Of course using a threat against them and saying they did her harm would get them in trouble with Horeb. It also helps that she can use her knife to free herself, when the guy is distracted. But she cuts it close, with just enough time to grab a bag and get on her camel before the hyena comes down and finds dinner. 


Jayden just needs freedom. Horeb is so NOT worth of her. He has no kindness, he killed to get his title, and is now on the hunt for Jayden. Well her heart is someplace else, and with someone who actually is good to her. Yup, I had angry moments with this book, I just couldn't stand Horeb at all. 


As you go on, Jayden manages to find peace for a short time. She finds the one she loves, gets a decent meal and a good nights sleep. But now its time to head back out on her journey. In hopes to be a princess with her true love. Let's hope nothing too horrible gets in their way. 

I loved this book even more than the last and I just can't wait for the next one! The feels were strong with this book!
