Review of Forbidden by Amber Maynard

Forbidden

Harriot, is from a wealthy family. Her independent nature does not make her a favorite person in the house. With her mom dead and her father remarried, she is not the favorite of the household. During Anglo-Saxon times, danger was everywhere. When vikings come and attack the house, Harriot gets away only to see her step family has not. Guilt sends her back into harms way, only to be captured herself. Her step family, not only doesn't care what happens to her but uses her to save themselves. Taken by the vikings, Harriot is thrown into a world that she doesn't understand. Surrounded by men who hate her and don't care if she lives or dies, she meets Ivar. Ivar has lost his world. His wife tortured to death, at the hands of a English lord and his brother missing by the same man. As Harriot learns about her captures and sees there way of life, she also sees the kindness given from Ivor, who has sworn to never hurt a women or see a women being treated as his wife had been. Slowly they become friends and a attraction beings. As Harriot learns about the specifics of Ivor's family, she also learns why she was taken. Her father is who killed Ivor's wife and has kidnapped his brother. Now they are after her father and his best friend. Harriot's life is turned upside down and life is very hard in her new surrounds. Can she survive? and More importantly can her heart?

This was a very good book. The author really pulls you into the time period. You fall into the world she creates and fall for the characters. Ivor, is in so much emotional pain but still holds to his values. In a time where a woman was not safe around men, ex specially around men who hate her, he keeps her safe. Harriot, coming from a very unhappy family and thrown into a situation no one should have to go through, handles herself with courage. I got pulled into the book and couldn't set it down. I loved how you get pulled into the time period and you feel like you are there with Harriot and on the edge of your seat to see what happens next.
