The year is 712 in England. Rowena purchases a handsome male slave for three reasons. One, to rile the man named Eadward, who fancies himself her next husband. Two, to enlist the slave in a scheme to avenge herself for her husband's death, which Eadward may or may not have had a hand in. And three, because the sight and touch of this slave has never made Rowena feel more alive as a woman.
Wulf should mean nothing to her. He would have been put to death if she hadn't bought him - he was untameable, according to the slavers. He had been gentle with Rowena when she ran her hands over him. How can she trust him with the task that needs undertaking? What if he betrays her? She could lose everything she holds dear. Still, there is something about him. . .
The woman owns Wulf, and as much pain as he's suffered under the lash, he should know better than to rile her. There is something about Rowena that makes Wulf want to be the man he was before his freedom was stripped from him.
Forbidden tells the tale of mismatched love between a slave marked for death, and a woman of secret passion.
