The Synopsis:

Payton Llewelyn, daughter to the cat-shifter alpha, wakes up with a throbbing head and a bullet wound to the hip. Recalling the events that led her there, the scent of a shifter permeates her senses—not that of a cat though, but of a wolf.

Damien Lowell, future pack leader of the wolf-shifters, has found himself in an impossible situation. Cat-shifters and wolf-shifters aren’t friends, and what Payton doesn’t know is that his father is behind her attack. He only meant to prevent her from being kidnapped, and he now has the wounded princess of the cat-shifters in his custody.

But when the heat becomes too much to handle, Damien and Payton must choose whether to follow their instincts or question the forbidden.

My ‘Blogging Reader’s Review’ after reading ‘FORBIDDEN HEAT (Forbidden Series book #2)’:

*May contain Spoilers if you haven’t read Forbidden Blood (book #1) yet.*

This review is based on an ARC (early-copy) that I received in order to give my honest review for Forbidden Heat which is the second novel of the Forbidden series by R. L. Kenderson. I absolutely adored the uniqueness of the first novel of this series and it was not what I expected. I was excited and looking forward to getting the chance to review this one. Now that I’ve read it, I can not tell you how much I loved it and found the flow of the story so enthralling. It’s hard to give a truly fulfilling description of this story and the characters without giving away a few spoilers but I will try my best. The story contains humans, vampires and two types of “shifters”. Trust me when I say this isn’t your typical “vampy” story I can assure you it’s better than that. 

For those like me who enjoy multiple P.O.V.’s(point of views) in a story, this one like the first has plenty. We get 9 P.O.V.’s from: Payton Llewlyn(Shifter-daughter to Alpha), Damien Lowell(Shifter-son to Alpha), a mystery ‘Shifter’ enemy, Alpha Vance Llewelyn, Guardian Dante Leonidas(vampire), Sentinel Shifter Sawyer Lennar, Isabelle Rand(Damien’s Shifter friend), Dwyer Lowell(Alpha-Shifter), and Saxon Einar(Sentinel Shifter). Don’t feel overwhelmed. They are well written and easy to keep track of within the story which is definitely one of the many things I enjoy about this series.

The story continues where book one left off. The sometimes witty, dark haired, blue-eyed, beauty and daughter of an Alpha Shifter, Payton Llewleyn had almost been kidnapped. But luckily another shifter named Damien Lowell was there to rescue her. Payton is the daughter of the Alpha of her shifter kind and someone was determined to steal both her and her brother Vaughn.

Lucky for Payton, Damien Lowell was there to help her with his tall, handsome, and concerned shifter self. He wants to make sure she heals up from the wounds she received during his rescue but what he didn’t realize is how much Payton would effect him and flip his world upside down. All he’s ever wanted was to someday help his pack return to their rightful place and stop someone very close to him from destroying anything else while causing mayhem. When he is literally snowed in and stuck in a cabin with Payton, he sends a friend to notify her family that she is safe and healing.

When shifter Isabelle Rand does a simple deed for her good friend Damien, she was nervous about entering an old territory that she hadn’t been around in a while. But the situation becomes more than she bargained for when she comes in contact with Zane, a Sentinel Shifter.  Then we also have Sentinel Shifter Sawyer and human Kenzie who are being held hostage by people they don’t know.  They struggle with their strong personalities and sexual tension while trying to pretend to be other people in front of their kidnappers.

There are so many entertaining and wonderful facets to this story and I loved every minute of it! This one is definitely a steamy read and it was the all written in a great flow with the story. Will the mystery enemy be revealed? Can there ever truly be peace between them all or will tensions only rise? What will happen when new love interests emerge but differences threaten to pull them all apart? This story is so amazing and captivating because of the hot moments, romantic bonds, the suspense and mystery all through this story! The characters continue to keep me engaged into their individual story lines which readers should definitely love. And yes, there are sexy Alpha-males all over this. I highly recommend this novel and this series. Once again, great job Ranae and Lara! 😉


Reader Warning: The story contains sexual content, sexual-language at times and mature situations.  Recommended for readers – ages 18+.

How I imagined the characters while reading ‘FORBIDDEN HEAT’:

1 collage 2



Payton’s thoughts:  Before she could finish her thought and attempt to force herself up, someone lifted her from the ground and carried her. It was the shifter. Have I been saved? Or am I in more danger? She tried to get a better read on who held her, but she was in a fireman’s hold, moving fast.

Damien’s thoughts:  He closed his eyes, took a deep breath, and told himself to stop being a pussy. So, she was naked and fucking gorgeous. She was also hurt and unconscious, and his job was to clean and dress her wounds, not think about having sex with her. Now, he only needed to communicate that to his dick. He felt like a goddamn perv.

Sawyer and Kenzie:  “They have video cameras everywhere. I don’t know if they are watching us twenty-four/seven or just recording us. I also don’t know if they have sound, but I didn’t want to talk where they could hear us.”
“And here I thought you just wanted to see me naked.”
She snorted. “In your dreams.”
If you only knew.

Payton’s thoughts:  All joking had been put aside and pure sex radiated off him. The whites of his eyes disappeared as his dominant wolf side showed itself.
She sucked in a breath. This was an alpha male, and he wanted her to know it. It was as if someone had thrown gas on the fire burning between them. His rich cedar scent got stronger, and she struggled with the need to rub her thighs together.

Damien’s words: “I want you. God, do I want you. My wolf wants you. But you aren’t in any shape to have sex—at least not the kind of sex I want to have.” His eyes roamed her face and came back to hers. “Payton, when I’m inside you, I won’t be able to control myself, and I don’t want anything holding me back from giving you what you deserve.” He leaned down to her ear and whispered, “All of me.”

Sawyer’s thoughts: He hadn’t asked for it, and he certainly didn’t want it. He felt bad that he was constantly an asshole to her, but he knew she felt the same magnetism he did, and he had to push her away. Any kind of relationship would only end badly for both of them.
At times, he’d been unable to control his attraction to her.

Payton’s thoughts:  He took her mouth like a starved man, and it only fueled the flames in her.
She buried her fingers in his hair as he kissed her. It was deep and penetrating, full of tongue, teeth, and lips. No one had ever kissed her like this. The achy hot feeling she’d first noticed this morning intensified. Something told her it was important, but she brushed it aside. Kissing Damien felt too good to waste time thinking about anything else.
