An okay read 19 Feb. 2013

I found the characters and the situation a bit awkward, I guess the story just didn't resonate with me. I'm not sorry I purchased it but if it was a physical book I'd probably give it to my local second hand book store rather than keep it to read again.

Regency done right! 6 Oct. 2012
By Tara - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I don't think Shelley Bradley is capable of writing a book I don't love and Strictly Forbidden is no exception. This book broke my heart into little bitty pieces. Poor, naive Kira! She had already been through so much scandal and seen the worst the ton had to offer, but she still held the hope that love would happen. Gavin was a cad of the highest order; seducing Kira to show his cousin she was exactly the woman she was reputed to be. This couple just made my heart hurt and yearn for a happy ending. Bradley proves once again she is an author worth loving and Strictly Forbidden is regency done right.
Loved it 28 July 2014

Kira Melbourne is running from a scandal. She foolishly ran way with a nobleman whom she thought was going to whisk her off to Gretna Green, instead he abandoned her and told the ton about her "wanton" behavior.

Kira is simply one of the best and most complex heroines I have ever read about in a romance novel. She is half Persian and she is considered bad blood. She cannot find her place either in London or Persia. She desires peace and a family and the only one able to provide these for her is a sweet vicar. The Vicar knows of her past but dismisses it. He does not love Kira but desires to save her. This too-good-to-be-true vicar has an important cousin though, Gavin Daggett, the Duke of Cropthorne

Gavin has heard the rumors surrounding Kira and is appalled. He decides seducing her is the only way to show his cousin her true nature. Of course, the seducer becomes the seduced. Shelly Bradley doesn't take the easy road with these two characters though. Gavin is prejudiced against Kira's Middle Eastern bloodline. Furthermore, he feels ashamed and guilty for his prejudice. His seduction is despicable and he knows this but seems unable to stop things once they are in motion.

Kira is so incredibly lonely that it is totally understandable why she would see Gavin's cousin as her savior. It also explains why she responds so quickly to Gavin's seduction. He portrays kindness and acceptance, something she has never had her entire life from the ton. He is also passionate and ready to take a stand on her behalf.

Gavin has his own demons to exorcise. He does not want to succumb to real love and passion, else he end up like his father, an indiscriminate womanizer. His transformation is slow but by the end of the book he is totally redeemed and worthy of his heroine. Kira was bold, brave and had a wealth of kindness. Her unselfish nature and confidence were amazing even under some of the most trying circumstances. This book will most assuredly go on my keeper shelf.
