A Love Forbidden is the second book in the Heart of the Rockies series. It however is not really a true squeal to first book, you could read this book without reading the first if you wanted, but if you’re like me then chances are you read books in order. You First meet Shiloh Wainwright in the first book, but A Love Forbidden is entirely Shiloh’s story.
Shiloh takes a teaching job at the White River Indian Agency to teach the Ute Indian children English. She hopes that the fact that she speaks Ute will allow the Ute to open up to her. In the process she runs into her childhood friend Jesse Blackwater; who is half Ute half white and doesn’t really know where he fits in.
As the second book in the Heart of the Rockies series it is written a little different from the first book. The plot development is different it is a little slower than in the first book. Even though Jesse and Shiloh knew each other before they have to rebuild their friendship. They danger strikes and they are torn apart again. Will things end differently this time? Will Jesse and Shiloh find a place together or will a difference of skin tone and family tear them apart again.
Even though A Forbidden Love was different from A Heart Divided I found myself liking this one even more than the first. That’s what I love about books in a series that are written slightly different, because that way everyone can find something they like. A Forbidden Love has something for everyone action, adventure, and love. There is even a Red Shirt style hero (though you would only get that if you have read Courting Morrow Little by Laura Frantz.) I hope that there is a third book in this series.
I checked this book out from my local library because it looked good. I wrote the review of my own choosing to tell others about this book.
