Thoughts: Anne Mather is one of the classic authors for Harlequin – I can remember reading her books when I first began reading romances many years ago. I loved Forbidden Temptation – it managed to capture that old school, early Harlequin-like vibe will still being a bit more current at the same time. Anne Mather is an accomplished writer, and that comes across no matter what book you read by her. This is a really sweet romance that really made me remember why I enjoy reading so much. Another book from Ms. Mather to add to my collection..:)
