It started with a drink.

It turned into a promise.

Ransom Scott lost his heart the day the woman he loved chose another man. Or so he thought. Estranged from his brother, distancing himself from the world, he’s been drowning his sorrows in cheap booze and women…determined to forget.

His world is falling apart, until a beautiful woman decides to take a chance on him.

Dani Deviche is as bewitching as she is innocent. Full of youth and vitality, she captivates him. Challenges him. She’s everything Ransom never thought to look for in the opposite sex, and he can’t get enough.

When a promise of friendship turns into something more, can Ransom fulfill his end of the bargain, or will a secret from Dani’s past destroy his last chance at happiness?

**Author’s Note** This book was written as a compliment to the Forbidden Trilogy. However, it can be read as a standalone.



Forbidden Valentine (Forbidden Trilogy #4) by J.C. Valentine

Ransom Scott lost the woman he thought he was in love with to his identical twin brother. He also lost the strained relationship he and his brother shared. He spent most of his life competing with Rebel when they were younger. When they grew older and discovered they had the same taste in women it wasn’t long before Ransom was grabbing up Rebel’s leftovers. Rebel was a playboy throwing away woman once he got bored. Ransom assumed the same would happened with Josephine but it never did. She turned out the be the woman who finally tamed the Rebel. But where did that leave Ransom? Alone and pinning for a woman who never really loved him—she always loved his brother. Drowning himself in alcohol and loneliness Ransom assumes he will never find happiness. Then Dani Deviche comes into his life over a drink at a bar. He is drawn to her innocence, yet she is so full of light and life he can’t help but want to be in her presence. She makes him want to be a better man. Dani can’t imagine a guy like Ransom wanting her, but when they start up a flirtatious conversation at a bar she decides to go for it. After the recent break up with her longtime boyfriend she could use a little reckless fun. However, the night doesn’t quite go as she planned, but the morning after promises to be so much more.

I can’t say enough about this book! Ransom was fantastic, sexy, romantic, sweet and brooding. Dani was innocent, light and love I just adored her. I knew from the start that Ransom and Jo didn’t belong together in the previous series. I was so excited when I heard J.C. Valentine was giving Ransom his story. Dani could not be more perfect for him in every way. She wants to fix him like she fixes everything else around her but she realizes that he has to do the work too. The chemistry was off the charts, there are many tender moments between these two. There are also some downright raunchy moments and I loved them all.  There is a shower scene that was just great I couldn’t help but laugh.

I read the Forbidden Trilogy but you can read Ransom and Dani’s story without reading the previous trilogy and you will not be lost. Though I do recommend Rebel and Josephine’s story. I have to say I might like Ransom’s story better—sorry Rebel, ha ha.

Synopsis: What if the person who stole your heart wasn't who you thought they were?

When my parents passed away, I grew up fast. Learning to stand on my own two feet has been a challenge, but I'm making way. I make no apologies for the path I've chosen. My choices have served me well, but no one knows the real me.

Except one man.

He's a mystery to me. He's controlling, demanding, and he has me wrapped around his little finger. Anything he wants, I'll give it to him. The hours we share together aren't about love. It's just sex. Hot, dirty, passionate sex. It was never supposed to be anything more than that.

Until everything changed.

Now, I'm more confused than ever. The more I learn about him, the less I seem to understand. What I do know is that I'm falling, and I have the feeling when I land, it's going to hurt.

What I've learned since that fateful night in his apartment has me reeling. Now, though, the truth has taken a backstage to other, more pressing matters.

While I struggle to make a choice that will determine the direction of my future, lies that I thought had been carefully hidden away are coming to light. My head is such a mess I don't know what's up or down anymore. Will I be able to sort it all out, or will the life I've worked so hard to build come crashing down in a pile of secrets and lies?
