Product description


The plot is wonderfully crafted with well-developed characters, nonstop suspense and a good twist to the ending. The setting and political environment make an effective backdrop and I found the Muslim elements very interesting. Ms. Stone adds to this an improbable but beautiful romance. MSEreads

If you're looking for a story that will transport you, this is it. From the very first chapters, my heart thundered along with Eliza's--the foreboding in her gut to what becomes an all-out crisis. The characters are well drawn and believable with intriguing depth. I got a clear sense of Eliza's and Sharif's backgrounds along the way, but the story stays focused on the moment. It takes talent to achieve that, and I'm sure a LOT of hard work.
Equally impressive is the research that went into this book. I've followed the author's blog, so I know she did her homework and enlisted input from experts to create an authentic world. All that research paid off. The cultural elements as well as the legal intricacies feel so real. Forbidden has twists and turns that'll keep your mind whirring. Just when you think you have something figured out, a surprise awaits. The romance between the two leads builds up at a satisfying pace. These are two adults in dire circumstances, not insta-lovey teenagers, and Stone keeps them true to character throughout. There are beautifully written passages along the way to drive their intense emotions home. by Lila

I loved how the author made Islam more understandable to non-followers of the religion. We learn that it is a religion of peace. Kudos to Ms. Stone for shining this light. by Lilicaspace

I felt the story tension, the sense of unease that permeated the air. It is that fear you don't want to acknowledge or admit to yourself. It is when you know, at your core, that things are going get much worse despite the horror you've already experienced. It is a sort of self-denial that allows you to act through horrendous, high-stress events, crisis after crisis, despite the deep terror within. That is the feeling that the author captured making Eliza's PTSD all the more engaging. by Juneta Key

About the Author

On our cattle ranch, when an animal was in distress or injured, I was put in charge of nursing it back to health. Never mind that I was just a kid and hated the sight of blood, but I had to muster up the courage to apply home remedies. My survival rate was pretty good. It seemed like a foregone conclusion that I would progress to nursing - humans. After one year into nurses training, I bolted. Bed pans and chronic diseases pushed me in different direction; a career of dealing with drug addicts, murder, suicide, fatalities, and biker gangs. In 1983 I graduated with honors as a paramedic and worked in the City of Edmonton's Emergency Services. For the next twenty years, I came face to face with scenes most people would rather not think about. I loved it. Having experienced life in the most deadly and gut wrenching events, and work alongside the police service, I gained the fodder for creating intense novels. My creative DNA shocked me when I was driven to write a dystopian / paranormal / romance novel, The Guardian's Wildchild. After taking several writing courses, I presented the manuscript to Omnific Publishing who published it in 2011. Just when I thought I could get my life back, another story took me prisoner - Forbidden. I couldn't believe there was this kind of story within me and desperate to be told. I resisted. It was futile. Retired and focused on home life, I'm back to being a mom to four pets and one husband. We travel and taste the excitement of other cultures. In between adventures, I've dabbled in water color painting, photography, needle work, gardening - the list goes on. In my next life, I plan to explore the cosmos. I've learned a few things in my seventy years. Thoughts are powerful. Intention is everything. Passion is the key to success.
