About six weeks ago now Mills and Boon launched a new series called DARE. The stories are hot as hell, packed full of romance, chemistry, tension – and of course plenty of sex! Naturally they have a characteristically Mills and Boon-ish happy ever after ending, making for the perfect quick read!
Last week I was alerted to a free DARE short story, and of course I snapped it up right there and then… and went on to read it immediately. Now I shall tell you all about it!

FORBIDDEN – Clare Connelly
Here is the synopsis from the Mills and Boon website:
One night wasn’t enough…
Will two be too much?
Violinist Astra James has never forgotten her x-rated night with billionaire Manning Brown-Hadden – or how he walked away the morning after. He’s her step-brother, so he couldn’t be more off-limits…but his every sinful touch is branded on her memory for life! So this time, she’s going to make him beg for her! It’s her game, so she’s playing by her rules, one hot moment at a time…
From the beginning the sexual chemistry between the two was palpable, and you just knew there was going to be more to their story. I loved the way the author built up the tension between the two, but also the internal tension in the individual characters. I really got a sense of how much was at stake for Astra and Manning and liked the way they developed during the story. To start with both felt a little selfish, cold even… but by the end of the story you could tell they were anything but!
The only downside to the story is that I wish I could read more about Astra and Manning – I’d especially love to read in more detail about what happened the first time they gave in to temptation!
