Heavy on the subplot, light on the romance.

Sara Craven does angst and longing well. However, I felt the romance took a backseat to the mystery surrounding Zoe's mother.

Woman discovers her recently deceased mother owned a Greek villa, and goes to the island to find out more about the situation. She meets the handsome Andreas, and over time the truth about him and about her past is revealed.

The story has a little bit of a Gothic tone, with elements like mysteriously glaring old men, and the empty house featuring prominently. The main character and the romance are developed satisfyingly; while it's never in doubt that the reason for the relationship being "forbi

A good read.
Beautifully written location scenes made me feel like I was right there on that wonderful island.
The instant attraction that draws Andreas and Zoe together is hot but forbidden. You can just feel their connection simmering and waiting to burst out taking control. But Andreas reminds in control and wants to do their relationship right, finally convincing Zoe he is serious only to disappear, breaking her heart. Finding out why he left and an old secret smashs the remaining pieces of th

I'm afraid I did not like this messy plot at all. The setting of the Greek island was very lovely, not touristy at all and the mysterious Andreas was perfect summer holiday fling material, or so Zoe thought.

But the mystery of Zoe's mother and the villa Danaë overshadowed all the romance...


THE icky factor of Andreas and Zoe being half siblings was too much for me...the writer was cruel as I really felt the hopelessness of their situation. In real life this wou

I didn't care for the main characters, they treated each other badly. The shocking revelation near the end, I suspected, but I wondered at their complete acceptance of the "truth". I did like the ending though.

Kitabın türkçe adı Yasak Gelin. Gerçekten ilginç bir kitaptı. Andreas'ın Zoe'yi ilk görüşte evleneceği kadın seçmesi..Diyor ki Tamam bu evleneceğim kadın. Ve Gerçekten saygılı. öpüştü falan ama birlikte olmadı.Bu çok hoş bir davranış. Ama Salak kız(HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA) Gitti bikinisinin üstünü çözüyor Andreas'a aklını çelmeye çalışıyor fdbadfgadghf bu çok küçük düşürücü bir davranış hele de Andreas karşılık vermeyince :D

After they fall for each other they are mistakenly led to believe they are related and therefore forbidden. This is one occasion in Andreas Stephanos's life when he cannot have what he really wants. Better not let Zoe Lambert know that he's really the heir to a shipping fortune,or allow the intense physical desire between them to be indulged. There is a compelling reason the Greek tycoon can never bed or wed Zoe.

i really didnt expect the same father card to be drawn when i was trying to work out even if thir parents had a history why the hell should their relationship be forbidden... and i think the ending is a little bit rushed.i feel sorry for all the miserable parties. such a waste.

I thought the book was a good read and the angst was there to make it even better but when the hero and heroine thought they were brother and sister I was thrown off. The story got a bit ludicrous and boring.

This was pretty good, for a "romance." The characters were predictable, but the plot had a twist that was much more interesting than most in the genre. I liked it.
