Danger's Promise

Once Forbidden

Saving Grace is probably my favorite Julie Garwood book. That being said, I thought she gave the subject of abuse a pretty light treatment. It worked for Garwood. It wouldn't have worked for many others. Which is why I began Once Forbidden with some hope. Terri Brisbin's heroine endures a hellish we ...

While a touch of mystery toward the end adds some ...

If you like historicals with a lot of attention to detail and a real sense of the period, this very well may be just the book for yo ...
