Waiting on Wednesday: Banished, (Forbidden #2) by Kimberley Griffiths Little

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases that we're eagerly awaiting.  I've chosen a book this week that is a sequel to a book I read as part of a blog tour and absolutely fell in love with it.  The first book was called Forbidden, and you can read my review of it HERE.   Here's the blurb for this second book, Banished, from Goodreads:

She thought she’d lost everything . . .

After spending months traveling the harsh, unforgiving Mesopotamian desert, Jayden reunites with a broken, injured Kadesh. Although everyone was convinced the violent and unpredictable Horeb, Jayden’s betrothed, killed the handsome prince, Jayden knew in her heart that her love was alive and safe. But their reunion is short-lived, as they learn Horeb is on their trail and determined to take back the girl he has claimed. Soon, the two star-crossed lovers are on the run toward Sariba, Kadesh’s homeland, where, as heir to the Kingdom, he plans to make Jayden his princess.

But the trek to Sariba is fraught with heartache and danger. After narrowly escaping being stoned to death for a crime she didn’t commit, and learning that her sister has disappeared, Jayden’s only solace is her love for Kadesh. But even he is keeping secrets from her . . . secrets that will change everything.

This gorgeous and enchanting sequel to Forbidden, is full of love, danger, and heated passion that will leave readers breathless.


The description leaves me very breathless! Can't wait to read it, don't know if I can wait clear till 2016.  

So, what book are you eagerly awaiting this week?

  2. I wanted to read Forbidden so bad last year but I never got to it. I still want to read it really bad! I just love the covers of these books, too. It seems like I have a little time to get to it. At least I won't have to wait as long for the sequel! Great pick!
