Captive but ForbiddenCaptive but Forbidden by Lynn Raye Harris
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Book Blurb:
Public duty  
The news that wild socialite Veronica St. Germaine has cleaned up her act and stepped into her father’s shoes as ruler of a Mediterranean principality creates a tabloid frenzy! But it’s not just the paparazzi that are out for blood…. 
Private scandal 

Duty demands that bodyguard Rajesh Vala must protect Veronica-whatever the cost…. But Veronica has always rebelled against commands, and she isn’t making Raj’s job easy! He calls it safeguarding. She calls it being held captive at his beach house. Both realize that the attraction between them is inconvenient…. Veronica is forbidden, not for bedding!

Review:
Wow! This book was one hot thrilling read! Emphasis on ‘Thrilling & Hot’.
This book is so different for the regular ‘Presents line’ and for that I say “hooray”. Thank You Lynn for stepping outside the box; for giving us a Women President, a Hero of Indian ethnicity and beautiful and exotic locale of Goa.

Lynne has created two multidimensional characters in Rajesh Vala and Veronica St. Germaine; these two were far from perfect individuals, a bit damaged even due to their life experiences but strong well-rounded characters.

The chemistry and the sexual tension between Veronica and Raj was off the charts hot; the dialogues were snappy and fresh. I liked the fact that Raj and Veronica communicated their issues to each other and worked through them.

Captive but forbidden had it all: Romance, espionage, mystery and passion, the story held me captive from start to finish. I would highly recommend this book
