My Forbidden Desire

An icy sensation prickled across the back of Alexandrine Marit’s neck and raised gooseflesh on her arms. She looked around for an open window while she absently rubbed herself. Her crappy apartment wasn’t big so that took all of two seconds. No open windows. The alternate meaning of that ripple of cold should have penetrated, but she was distracted and not thinking as clearly as she ought to have been.

About My Forbidden Desire

Cover of My Forbidden Desire

When hatred turns into forbidden desire…

A witch and a demon must trust the passion that binds them or risk annihilation.

A fierce and deadly demon, Xia isn’t happy when he’s ordered to protect a friend’s sister. He knows he’s perfect for a simple assignment that won’t take long. But dangerous forces are aligned against her, and they’re soon on the run from foes determined to see her dead. Before long, his fate and his heart are forever entwined with a woman who turns out to be the one thing he hates most in the world: a witch.

…who dares take the first step into dark passion?

Alexandrine Marit doesn’t believe she needs a bodyguard until the demons break in. If it weren’t for the gorgeous and very unpleasant Xia she’d be dead. As she fights to stay alive, she gives more than her heart to the demon who hates her. Can they trust their hearts or will their enemies keep them forever apart?

My Forbidden Desire was a finalist in the 2010 RITA for Best Paranormal Romance. It was also a finalist in the 2010 Reader’s Crown for Best Paranormal Romance.

This book has been significantly revised from the original version so that it reflects my vision for the series.

Dear Author B+

My Forbidden Desire is a sexy, engrossing read, one that I really enjoyed. The action is fast at times but not so fast that there aren’t also some wonderful slower moments in which Xia and Alexandrine become intimate, and I don’t mean just physically.
