    1 thought on “Forbidden Love

    1. "Kiss me back, you little bitch, or I'll take you here and now."That little gem is just one of the many heart warming things the "hero" says to the heroine. The book starts out fine, I was into the whole guardian/ward thing. I could even overlook his whole 'loveless' marriage excuse for infidelity.but then Justin took a turn for the worse. Justin got rapey. Sure Megan could get annoyingBECAUSE SHE WAS 17!!!! I'm down with age differences by the way, just not when the man is an enormous asstard. [...]

    2. A historical romance with no historical accuracy whatsoever. Fine, I could have still liked it. But the book did not know what it wanted to be. It started out like a light farce similar to Lisa Kleypas' frothy confections. And it ended in a lugubrious, frankly distressing bodice-ripper, complete with rape/forced seduction, kidnapping, OW/OM drama, face slaps galore, and worse of all, (view spoiler)[a forced marriage followed immediately by the graphic miscarriage of a seven months baby. (hide sp [...]

    3. This review and the rest of the crap I write can be seen @ my blogBark's Book Nonsense . Stop by and say hey.*There may be mild spoilers but everything I write about happens early on. I've left out the truly terrifying spoilers. You'll have to read the book yourself to discover them ;)This is an oldie, the original copyright says 1983, and I had my doubts that it would be one of those hidden gems but I read it anyway.You should probably know going in that things happen within this book that are [...]

    4. Masterful Storytelling Kept me Reading Late Into the Night!Seduced by her guardian, Justin, Earl of Weston, at his estate in Ireland when she was 17, Megan Kindead is made to pay the price. And oh, how she pays. Though Justin was very aware his behavior was despicable, he “couldn’t help himself” and ruined her just the same. In return, the young innocent fell in love. Of course, he forgot to tell her one thing: he could not marry her as he was already married. Finding she is pregnant, Mega [...]

    5. Didn't like the turn this story took, at all. The idea behind it was great and unusual for a historical and they were a sweet couple at first. Then all of a sudden you have the hero turning into a world class arse. If ever there was a hero that deserved a knee to the groin it was this guy. He must have called the heroine a bitch, slut, or some other equally horrible name at least 2 dozen times. When I finished the book I was disappointed that he was still breathing.

    6. Oh my god! I can't even begin to comprehend what type of pathetic book this was?! It was okay to write books with huge age differences back then but this?! THIS IS PLAIN PAEDOPHILE BEHAVIOUR. This hero (if he can be called that) used the word 'little girl' so many times I actually started believing the girl was of 10 years old, not 17! 'Kiss me back you little bitch or I'll take you right here and right now''You little bitch' x 721983 times. 'Little girl, you're too little' x every other sentenc [...]

    7. This is classic Robards at her best and makes me sad for the recent stuff she's put out especially her latest, Shameless, which I found incessantly boring. This one on the other hand was quite the opposite. Wonderful, angst filled, heart wrenching story about a young woman in love with her guardian and said guardian in love with his young ward. Both Megan and Justin are strong willed people and they hurt each other as they work through the difficulties of their relationship.I wish that Karen Rob [...]

    8. Overall 4.5 starsRe: the audio. James Clamp did a good job of narrating. I don't normally like men narrating romance, because their female voices always make me think of a big strapping woman with 'man hands'. Of course, some females do an equally poor job with the males. YMMV, I'm sure.The story was nice and 'forbidden', which was what I was looking for. As her ward, the H legally had all the power of a father over the heroine. Plus he was almost 20yrs older than she. Then there's the tiny litt [...]

    9. Nobody does taboo romance like Karen Robards, and on this "re-read" I listened to the audiobook. Excellent story of a 17-yr-old girl/woman who is at first infatuated with and then becomes the lover of her guardianher 35-yr-old, married guardian.One of my top five all-time favorite historical romances!

    10. This was my first Karen Robards and I really liked it! It was chock-full of angst (and for those of you who read my reviews know I LOVE). For a while there, the hot and cold that Justin was doing was driving me crazy, but I think that was more him trying to fight his feelings for Megan. And Megan. Megan. Megan. Megan. For her to be an innocent 17 year old, she was quick to pick up that tears could get her almost anything with Justin and she was manipulative. But you know what? Her manipulativene [...]

    11. There couldnt be a more descriptive title than 'Forbidden Love' When I first picked this one up I thought the premise was creepy but I think thats what makes it so great. Robards just pushes it further and further. Karen Robards is probably my favorite author i wish she would write more historicals!!!!

    12. I actually loved this book sooooo much, and I'm really surprising myself when I find the more I think about it and re-read it in my head, the more I love it! At first I thought it was so weird how he's 36 and she's 17 when they first sleep together and fall in love, but as I read on, I thought (for some still unidentifiable reason) that it was amazing, I just don't understand why, and the fact that he is so much older than her, gives me a strange feeling inside me that like I said, I can't ident [...]

    13. Um, okay, this is uncomfortable. I can recall thinking this book was incredibly sexy when I first read it, but I was dumb as a box of rocks back then, I'm all grown up now and find the whole premise creepy. The heroine is hardly more than a fetus, and her abuser aka "love interest" is her guardian. Humbert Humbert in "Lolita" is Atticus Finch compared to this rapey jackass.

    14. It's always such a disappointment to see old, outdated romance novels like this republished with nice, new covers. This one features repeated child rape and Stockholm syndrome. If this male character committed these acts in modern America, he would be facing multiple enhanced felonies. Karen Robards has written many good books; this is not one of them.

    15. Seventeen-year-old child (who really acts like one) and her much older (I'm guessing twice her age) married guardian. Ew.

    16. Should have listened to my fellow respected reviewers.Tropey romance a la bodice ripper with an arrogant, older man seducer and a YOUNG and naive duped and abused heroine.

    17. I must be a sick puppy but I did love this novel. The H was married to a frigid, uncaring gold digger and the heroine was his teenage ward and it was totally politically incorrect but it was so damn riveting. The hero was totally obsessed with the heroine Meagan and she played her little flirtatious games with him until they eventually started having sex. The part I hated was that Justin had never told Meagan about his wife. He showed a total disregard for her feelings and for her sense of propr [...]

    18. Why?! Why Karen why?!?! Don't get me wrong, the ward-guardian relationship didn't put me off, nor did the age difference. Admittedly, when the blurb told me our charming earl was married while he was getting it on with his ward (Woody Allen imagery), I held off from reading the novel. It was my love for Karen Robards work that got me turning the first page nervously and I was pleasantly surprised that I was gunning for Justin (earl) and Megan (ward) to work. Even though he was married since his [...]

    19. 4.5 Stars actuallyLoved everything about the story as it had so much emotion, passion, and angst, exactly what I wished for in a romance. Of course, the H's obsession for the h constantly tugged at my heartstrings, esp. his crazed jealousy/anguish when she made him think her feelings for him were only a school-girl crush and that she wished to marry another. Boy oh boy, him kidnapping her to prevent her marriage and his demonic need to drive all thoughts of the other guy from her mind were my fa [...]

    20. I don't know if I like this story or hate it so I m not going to rate it at allThe beginning was really nice I was wondering why most of the reviews I read hated this story but after 50 or ao percent later I started understanding The Girl/Heroine wanted to be loved, to be cared for she was like a typical 17 year olds wanted parties to dance have gifts. I don't even want to talk about the hero(I DON'T EVEN WANT TO CALL HIM A HERO) what a BASTARD I don't know how any one can love this kind of crea [...]

    21. Yeah yeah. I know it's a rooomance novel, but it stands out as one that I've actually kept all these years. It's fairly predictable but that didn't keep me from sucked into the story. Then again, I'm no literary snot; I read what I like regardless of the genre. I only base a work's value by whether or not it entertained, enlightened, or fascinated, be it a younger crowd's book or something with a heavy bite to it.This definitely held my attention and had characters that made me invest emotionall [...]

    22. Forbidden Love is the opposite scenario of On The Island (by Garves-Graves, Tracy), without the deserted island bit . The plot and writing, within the first part of this book was good, but it started going downhill from there; the heroine and hero's motivations behind their actions/in-actions are completely laughable, some questionable passionate scenes (bordering on rape), and to top it off, Robards decides to throw in some Chris Brown inspired crazy moments.

    23. This one was a bit more on the taboo-side of romances and was quite dark at times. I will say that I didn't really buy into the 'romantic' aspects of the story, but it was an immensely readable book that captured my full attention for a Sunday afternoon :)

    24. Pure tripe. He's more than twice her age at the time of the story, he's her guardian (and she's a minor - 17), he's married, he hits her, he rapes her, he abducts her from her engagement and prevents her marriage just because he's jealous. And the less said about her, the better.

    25. Questo è chiaramente un libro definibile come “Lammerda che piace” perchè è un coacervo di situazioni irritanti, personaggi immaturi, sborrate epiche in vagina non curandosi delle conseguenze e, soprattutto, c’è il Personaggio Femminile più irritante della Storia dei Personaggi Femminili, e per par condicio il Personaggio Maschile più Immaturo della Storia dei Personaggi Maschili…, piace. Cioè, tu sai che è una merdata e che la scrittrice mentre lo scriveva ti perculava preventiv [...]

    26. Vomitevole *36 anni contro 17, un tutore e una pupilla, un uomo sposato e una ragazzina: vi basta?Justin non è un uomo, è un predatore e il suo comportamento è quasi sempre imperdonabile dall’inizio alla fine e non vale l’unica giustificazione che può addurre: l’attrazione irresistibile per una minorenne che travolge lui, come tanti altri uomini non giovanissimi. Secondo me, meriterebbe di finire in galera e venire dimenticato lì.Megan, da parte sua, è giovane e inesperta e non sa ch [...]
