Forbidden, A Novella


James Alexander Whitmore III, better known as Jaws as a joke among his co-workers, doesn’t even want to be on this cruise he’s been guilted into.

A rule-breaker in his CEO father’s eyes, he’s a software engineer who designs video games. Although, he’s not your typical geek, either, with his muscular body framed by long, dark hair and home to tribal tattoos from his latest successful game.

After traveling around the world to gain certificates as a personal trainer and yoga instructor, Samantha has finally landed her perfect job working on a cruise ship. As a staff member, Sam has the run of the ship. She can fraternize with the passengers, but being caught in flagrante delicto is grounds for immediate dismissal.

While an adventurer, she’s not a rule-breaker, so this poses a problem when she meets Mr. Tall, Dark and Mysterious. While she can’t imagine fitting into the world of a man who can rent a secluded cabin in the Grand Turks for the five hours they are in port, he just may prove to be her greatest adventure yet, in the bedroom and out.

“This book is sexy, sweet, funny and absolutely worth devouring! Watching Samantha struggle with her decision and Jaws flirting with destiny had me glued to the pages.” ~5 Stars, Ava Mallory
“The romance that flourishes between them is swoon-worthy, and the narrative is far too good to not read all in one setting. I didn’t want to put it down! If there is one thing Kiki Howell knows how to do, it’s write a romance that is the perfect blend of erotic sensuality and passionate romance.

Your breath will catch, your face will flush. You will swoon, you will sigh. In the end, you will read the final word with a smile on your face. That’s how you know it’s a great romance.” ~ 5 Stars from AP Bullard, Triskele reviews

“This was the first book that I had read by this author and definitely not the last. It was a refreshing change for a love story which is what this beautiful tale is to have the male lead to be strong and alpha but also to have insecurities and doubts the same as we all do, to show him as a real person with real feelings. I devoured this book in one sitting and am now desperate to read something else by this amazingly talented author. The story itself was incredibly well written showing two very different personalities from two very different worlds, but also shows where there is a will there is a way. The surrounding to this story as well as the connections between this surprising hero and heroine was beautiful in description and the imagine that it created in my mind. It was a story that I did not want to end and would love to know more about these two characters and the journey that their love is taking them on. I found this a loving, hot and sexy, humorous read that I would wholeheartedly recommend. I hope you enjoy this story as much as I did. Happy Reading!” ~5 Stars, MrsKissmas, AmazonUK
