His Forbidden Kiss Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of His Forbidden Kiss

Like most young women in London in 1663, all orphaned Vivienne Burroughs has to look forward to is an arranged marriage. But unlike most young women, Vivienne is determined to rebel against her fate. Her parents married for love, and that is Vivienne's dearest wish, to find a man she loves, and marry him. Having fled from her home to escape from a loathsome prospective husband, Sir Philip Martlebury, Vivienne is found on the docks by Robert Harding, a solicitor. Rob's heart goes out to this young woman, and when he learns she is trying to escape from what is sure to be a miserable marriage, he advises her to find out anything unfavorable about Sir Philip that she can, in the hopes that her uncle will chose another husband for her. Rob and Vivienne never expect to meet again, but they do when Sir Philip hires Rob - to draw up the marriage contract! Before long, Rob and Vivienne find themselves falling in love, and they will have to overcome obstacles to be together.
