After a terrible experience while under deep cover in a biker gang, Brian Storm ends up in the hospital.  Dr. Stan Gordon treats him.  To his surprise, he finds himself attracted to the handsome doctor.  Unfortunately, heís got a lot to deal with before he can think about any kind of relationship.

Dr. Stan Gordon isnít happy to find himself attracted to a patient.  Dating a patient would be unethical at best.  Still, he canít seem to forget about the good-looking copÖ

Forbidden Desire deals with the aftermath of trauma, and its effects on both the victim and others.  Detective Brian Storm is a strong character, and I thought the way he dealt with his experiences was realistic.  His guilt, anger, and desire to move on with Stan were all very believable.  Stan is also a likable character.  Heís sweet, caring, and helpful.  The conflict is a lot less action-packed and more emotion-based than I expected, but itís still interesting.  My advice: ignore the cover, and pick this one up for the sweet emotional journey rather than expecting action and adventure.
