This book touched my heart to write. And while I hate reading reviews as it’s really hard on an artist and we get super hyper critical with ourselves, even when it’s great, I want to share a few reviews on Forbidden Duke already.

Honestly when I sat down to write about this fictional though based on a real place contemporary romance, I honestly wanted to write stories about this place where fairy tales might come true. And while the suspense element at the castle was fun, these next few stories were the ones I wanted to tell from the get go. Where an ordinary girl meets this extraordinary guy. And so many of my friends and if I’m honest with myself, me too, we’ve all been in Donna’s shoes of self doubt. Anxiety is a real thing, but so is hope and happily-ever-afters. This was my motivation for writing this and I’m so happy so many people understood Donna.
