All I Want For Christmas Is...


This is a feature/meme created by Danya @  A Tapestry of Words where you choose a book each week leading up to Christmas and say why it's made it onto your wishlist – and I'd love to see what books everyone else is hoping to get! So if you want to make your own blog post about it, please link up here. :)

My pick for this week is...



"Forbidden" by Christina Phillips


Genre: Historical Romance
Pages: 336
ISBN: 9780425238080
Author's website: http://christinaphillips.com
Published: September 7, 2010 by Berkley Trade

Goodreads Blurb:
Carys knew from the moment she first spied on Maximus in his naked barbarian glory that he was a dangerous Roman centurion - his taut, battle-scarred flesh marking him as a fearless warrior. But her desire for him was as undeniable as it was illicit.
Charged by his emperor to eliminate a clan of powerful Druids in Britain, Maximus never expects his mission to be thwarted by the clan's ethereal princess, Carys, his daring voyeur. Falling under her spell, he doesn't realize her true heritage - until he captures her heart as well as her body.
As Carys's loyalties are twisted, and freedom is no longer her single-minded obsession, an avenging former lover threatens to crush Maximus's people into oblivion. Now Carys and Maximus must overcome the devastation of war and face the ultimate sacrifice if their forbidden love is to survive.

Why I added this one to my Christmas wishlist:
I chose this book because I've heard lots of great things about it and it happens to take place in one of my favorite time periods. Its also supposed to be a very hot read. What more can I say? It has a fabulous cover. :)
