Forbidden love is a theme I find fascinating, and I explore it on many different levels in my novel.  In [amazon_link id=”0982500203″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]The House on Black Lake[/amazon_link] Alexandra Brighton meets Ramey Sandeley months after they each have wed another. They both fall in love at first sight for the first time in their lives, but it is too late. Ramey’s wife is pregnant with their first child, and Alexandra is impregnated that night by her husband. Years later, a world weary, Alexandra journeys to Black Lake to find resolution to the obsession that has kept her captive for years.  She is now single, but he is still married and the father of five children. In addition to the lure of infidelity, the taboo of incest, racial and age differences, and marital bisexuality are also explored.

Below are listed thirty favorite forbidden love romances. Thanks to Amazon romance community for their input.
