Publisher's Summary

Huntress Alena MacLeod is given a mission: work undercover to discover a rogue vampire’s secretive work, then terminate him.
Ephraim MacNeill, aka Sutton Bastrop, knows Alena is his Elizabeth MacLeod from an earlier time, and he’s determined to return to the past and right all the wrongs to end the curse placed on the love of his life before it’s too late - again.
Together, they must risk all to stop a war between a newly formed Brotherhood of rogue vampires, tired of the status quo, and the League of Hunters, who have ruled for centuries over the vampires - both changed during the Black Death - some of the survivors becoming vampires, and others hunters of the same.

Twists and turns you don't see coming

What made the experience of listening to Forbidden Love the most enjoyable?

I loved that I could hear a great story while unpacking. This is an awesome way to multi-task.

What did you like best about this story?

I loved the story the best. The author puts twists in that you don't see coming.

Have you listened to any of Maria Hunter Welles’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have listened to this narrator before and this wasn't my favorite performance by her. I thought her Scottish accent had a Russian or Romanian flare to it.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Alena and Ephraim's love story. It builds so it's real.

Any additional comments?

Alena bugged me at times with her jealousy but other than that I really liked the story. I loved all the action and twists. I recommend this story if you like vampires, suspense, and a love story that goes back centuries.

Highlanders! Vampires! Huntresses! Love over Time!

What made the experience of listening to Forbidden Love the most enjoyable?

The combination of the captivating story and the narrator! Together the story came alive and kept my attention from the beginning to the end!

What did you like best about this story?

Forbidden Love will have you laughing one minute and swooning the next. It is a fractured re-telling of Romeo and Juliet, lovers cursed never to be united.

I always look forward to Terry's happy- ever-after endings. In Forbidden Lover she has a doozy of an ending in store that will leave a big smile on your face. Just be prepared for some huge surprises along the way!

“It is real, Lass.... You are mine as I am yours.”

What about Maria Hunter Welles’s performance did you like?

The narrator was very good. I could tell by her voice who was speaking and her inflection was right on. She voiced the Scottish brogue very well.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I especially loved their scenes in the hot tub. SO romantic and funny too! The chemistry between the two when Alena wasn't fighting him (and herself) was sizzling hot!! Their discourse was beautiful and funny and their interactions were passionately erotic. Just imagine a love held in check and unquenched for eons! I laughed out loud again when they were rushing to make love and Ephraim said: “You need to wear less clothing, lass” before they got down to some serious ooh la la lovemaking.

Any additional comments?

Ephraim was awesome. He spoke in brogue and I loved hearing him voiced by the narrator. He had suffered so over the centuries chasing Elizabeth's reincarnations and watching her die over and over. Even though his heart had gone through the wringer over and over, Ephraim kept his sense of humor. When Alena asked him if he had remained faithful to Elizabeth over the centuries, Ephaim replied: “You can't fault me for ensuring it's in working order... what if I hadn't used it and from this use it had fallen off?” LOL! I know those around me at the gym wondered why I was laughing out loud! I had to re-play that scene a few times... it was hilarious. Ephraim was loyal, strong and totally driven by his love of Elizabeth, which had never wavered.

Alena was strong also... she had to be to kill vampires. She was resigned to her life as a huntress without a love interest. Her family dynamics were unique. The women in her family named every female born with red hair Elizabeth as a tribute to the first Elizabeth who had died in the name of true love. The men of her clan were the problem vowing to hunt down and kill any of their people who dared to fall in love with a vamp. I was frustrated by and wanted to shake Alena at times feeling that she should have been more open to Ephraim and seen her family for what they were. She was stubborn to a fault and feisty beyond measure and she fought her attraction to Ephraim with everything she had until... she didn't.
