Forbidden Hearts

About the Book

A Cosmopolitan Best Book of 2017!

Alisha Rai returns with the second novel in her sizzling Forbidden Hearts series!

He wasn’t supposed to fall in love with his brother’s widow…

Accused of a crime he didn't commit, Jackson Kane fled his home, his name, and his family. Ten years later, he’s come back to town: older, wiser, richer, tougher—and still helpless to turn away the one woman he could never stop loving, even after she married his brother.

Sadia Ahmed can’t deal with the feelings her mysterious former brother-in-law stirs, but she also can’t turn down his offer of help with the cafe she’s inherited. While he heats up her kitchen, she slowly discovers that the boy she adored has grown into a man she’s simply unable to resist.

 An affair is unthinkable, but their desire is undeniable. As secrets and lies are stripped away, Sadia and Jackson must decide if they’re strong enough to face the past...and step into a future together.

Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

“Another emotional, passionate, and psychologically complex love story in a gripping series that follows the fates of two warring families.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“It’s not an easy journey, but watching Sadia and Jackson overcome each obstacle in order to claim their HEA is incredibly rewarding!” —RT Book Reviews (top pick)

“well-drawn characters and a plot that heats up with the mutual attraction... This is addictive reading for fans of family sagas and romance.”  —Publishers Weekly

“as deliciously soapy as a CW drama with a far more diverse cast and a heartfelt, sensitive eye for issues... With her inclusive, multi-cultural supporting characters, smoking hot love scenes, and keen eye for plotting and family dynamics, Rai crafts some of the best romance writing of the year here.” —Entertainment Weekly (Grade: A)

“gripping and passionate” —Bookish (Autumn 2017’s Most Swoon-Worthy Romance Books)
