Val is a Shield. The Shields travel
through time to stop the great evil and his minions. When they
find them, they usually find one of the Chosen as well. Val
and his friend and fellow shield Gabriel, are led to Scotland
in the year 1436 this time, where they find Nicole and save
her from a Gryphon.
Nicole has spent her life shunned and
alone. She has always known she is destined to die, but did
not know why until Val and Gabriel explain to her who she is
and why they must protect her.
While Val is willing to protect Nicoleís
life, he is not willing to give her his heart. Nicoleís
innocence and passion consume him, though, and his desire for
her becomes too strong to deny.
A Forbidden Temptation is
another exciting story in The Shields series. The romance,
sensuality and danger are present as always, but A
Forbidden Temptation also offers several surprises.
Nicoleís innocence is charming and sweet and Valís responses
to her range from amusing to deeply sensual. I like the
mystery and romance in a Forbidden Temptation.
Itís a very good story.
