Let your imagination soar with sensual tales of love through the ages!


Brother Ranald of Raptor Castle is a scarred monk in Scotland’s Kelso Abbey. When angered, he causes objects to fly about, turns still waters stormy and causes candles to light with but a look. In the peace of the abbey, he controls his rage and fights his forbidden desires. But what would he become if forced to return to the secular world?

His identical twin dies the day before he is to wed Catalin of Hunter Castle. Refusing to lose the bride’s fortune, the Chief of Raptor Castle arrives at the Abbey with an army and a special dispensation from the Pope. He demands that Ranald will marry Catalin. If he refuses, the Chief will destroy the Abbey and all within.


Catalin is a stong-willed, passionate lass. The eve before she must wed the long-lost Ranald, she approaches a monk hidden beneath his cowl and cloaked in the darkness of a stormy night. When she seeks to confess her sins, he gently stops her.

The next day as she approaches the altar, she sees Ranald’s tonsure. Catalin is terrified of what this monk, forced to become as other men, will do when he learns of her terrible sin.

    The Forbidden

    The male character is very strong and I easily got in feeling with him. The female character is extremely week. I never felt any conection or in character with her. In the contrary, I was thinking that one of the other female's in the story was a much better fit to him. The main female irritated me with her "doing nothing all day" life. There is also a few chapters missing - the entire book he is growling and screaming in fristration at her and the next he tell her of his forever love and one page later its the end of the book. Where did that change happen? AND that journey is what makes a good read.
