Publisher's Summary

Forewarned....
Throughout the Disputed Lands, she is called "Amber the Untouched" - a chaste, golden-haired beauty fleeing the remarkable love that was prophesied at her birth...and the death that must inevitably follow.

Foreseen....
He comes to her in darkness, as had been foretold - a wounded warrior with no memory...a promised lover seared by passion's fire, irresistibly drawn to the innocent enchantress who divines truth with a touch.

Forgotten....
In a time of war, their romance is legend - until a lost past returns to Duncan and labels Amber his enemy. But he cannot forsake the beautiful woman who has healed his body and his heart. He vows to defy to the death the dread forces that have proclaimed their love...forbidden.

Amour and armor: listen to Book 1 of the Medieval Trilogy.

    "Quite a letdown after "Untamed""

    It's been a few years since I read Lowell's medieval trilogy and I must have forgotten how much I disliked this second entry. Problem is Duncan is an anti-hero (well, he's an ass) and Lowell never makes him properly repentant for his cruel treatment of Amber. A good grovel was called for here and the lack of it left me feeling cheated. Amber is one of those born victims (I'm not making this up -- there was a prophesy) who suffers in martyr-like silence. This is a case of two people each with their own set of unattractive personality disorders finding each other and making a go of it. Good luck with that, but it left a bad taste in my mouth.

    The narrator does not have the gravitas of Anne Flosnik who brought such fun and enthusiasm to Untamed. Untamed is the better book by far. This one is something of a dirge.

    "Impossible for me to listen to"

    I was looking for a fun romance, but this was just terrible. Granted - maybe I'm just not the right audience for this kind of thing.

    I was looking for something fun, sexy and smart. This was not it. Both the writing and the narration made me cringe.

    "What a waste of money"

    I had to stop listening. The narator's high thin voice sounded very silly when reading the part of a war hardened warrior. Not the story or characterisation I expected after enjoying the first book of the series.

    "Great start but just okay."
    What did you like best about Forbidden? What did you like least?

    I was expecting the same type of story as Book 1 but was disappointed. It was a good story but should have been a novella. Not enough plot for the time spent.


    If you’ve listened to books by Elizabeth Lowell before, how does this one compare?

    I loved the Book 1 of this series. This book didn't have enough meat and too much sex. I'm not a prude but plot should have more pages than the lovemaking.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narrator was American and pronounced the name LaSabre as Lasaber. If you read the first book and knew what the name was supposed to be, it threw you off. It made think the heroine was a silly American girl who didn't know how to pronounce the Norman name. And she did not use much inflection. That made it hard to follow since the POV changed a lot.


    Any additional comments?

    I think, due to the narrator, I might have enjoyed it better in print.

    "Weakest of the trilogy...but essential"

    Wow...did I miss Anne Flosnik. The narration in this book was not that great. It was a real let down after Anne Flosnik's outstanding performance in the first and third books in the series.
    I felt like this book was a let down when compared to the first and last book. It seemed like there was no real story. There was romance and it was good, but the story lacked so much substance. I never really got enthralled in the story like I did in the first and third books. It seemed like the book was just ..."nobody can touch Amber but one person" over and over and over. I almost didn't even care about the outcome. I was pretty bored.
    Within minutes of listening to the first and third book I did't want to pause them. The second book just didn't deliver...but it is ESSENTIAL! And I don't consider it a waste of time...just not up to par.
    The trilogy as a whole is outstanding...with a little weak spot in the middle!

    "LOST"

    I do not quite understand how this book fits into the trilogy other than the characters reappear in book three. It is a good read but you are lost in the beginning and I do not think the story is every really developed totally.
