This short story is well rounded and has a good mix of romance, suspense and action. A Forbidden Love is the third book in the series and my favorite so far. While this story may be listened as a stand a lone, it is a much richer story after listening to the first two stories.
Another well written novella that flowed smoothly with an unexpected plot twist. Alison, the daughter to the leader of the group "Sons of Domnal" is part of secrete organization that believes in protecting humanity from shifters. She's been taught shifters are dangerous; however, she cannot deny her attractions to Jamie, who happens to be a bear shifter. As this group collides with the shifters, she will be forced to choose a side.
While Alison and Jamie's interaction and dialogue is well developed, the plot could be predictable at times.
I've listened to the first three stories in the series, and enjoyed them because they are a quick stories, and the plot builds on the previous book.

The publisher's blurb is rather extensive, so no need for a recap. The deep personal conflict that the main characters feel is managed very well and the story grabs you and makes you finish it in one sitting. Excellent!
Patrick Blackthorne is excellent as narrator.
If you are looking for a light shorter paranormal story, then this series is for you. While each book can be listened to individually, the plots and characters do layer up and overlap in interesting ways. The overlapping themes, specifically the potential conflict with the Sons of Domnal, seem to develop depth that would be less possible in a shorter story. For that reason alone I would recommend reading the stories in order, though it isn't necessary.
This book was the least satisfying of the three so far, though initially i had hoped it would be the most interesting. Without spoiling the book for you, I thought the personal challenges between the male and female protagonists seemed potentially insurmountable. I think their conflict of interests, though touches upon, demanded more exploration.
That said, I look forward to the next book in the series.
