Celebrating The Print Release Of Samantha Sommersby's FORBIDDEN: THE REVOLUTION

Today we're celebrating the print release of Samantha Sommersby's FORBIDDEN: THE REVOLUTION.

Samantha lives in San Diego with her husband and fifteen year old son. She is the author of ten novels and novellas including FORBIDDEN: THE TEMPTATION, her latest installment in the critically acclaimed Forbbiden series. To learn all about her Forbidden Series, check out the Bible to her Forbidden World.
In 2007, Samantha left what she used to call her "real life" day job as a pyschotherapist to pursue writing and working in the publishing industry full-time. She now happily spends her days immersed in the world of Forbidden, a world where vampires, werewolves, and demons are real, where magic is possible, and where love still conquers all.


FORBIDDEN: THE CLAIM - Book 3 in Samantha Sommersby's Forbidden Series

Twenty-five years ago Dell Renfield's father started a revolution, and Dell plans to finish it. Sorcerer, vampire, secret weapon, he's spent a lifetime training for his fate. The one distraction he isn't equipped for? Special Agent Alexandria Sanchez. A woman he desires above all others - and a woman he dare not get close to.

Alex's love life is already cursed. She doesn't need the added complication of a sexy new partner. Especially one who's touch is literally magic. Posing as his lover for the sake of their investigation is pure hell - and pure heaven. Now if she can just get him to quit casting spells long enough to prove she's capable. And keep her hands to herself in the process.

As they infiltrate a dangerous culture, temptation becomes too much to resist. And their torrid affair triggers an epic battle for power that could forever alter the future for them...and their kind.

This book has been previously published and has been revised and expanded from its original release.
Product Warnings - This book contains spectacular magical ass-kickings, copious amounts of blistering sex, one super-sexy, gun-toting heroine, and a very delicious, very powerful sorcerer...who sometimes sports fangs.

    I love that your Forbidden Series has been released to print this summer and I know you've been really busy with that, but when can we expect another installment?

    For those not familiar with your Forbidden Series, tell us a little bit about it and how the books fit together (the link to Sam's Forbidden: The Bible, is located in the above post!) and where they are going from here.

  12. The Forbidden series is set in a world where vampires, werewolves and demons are real, where magic is possible, and where love still conquers all. There are 4 books available now in eBook. Books 1, 2 & 3 are also available in print. I'll share the WARNINGS (which I LOVE). Each title features a different hero/heroine pairing and it told from first person POV, from the heroes perspective.

    Book 1 - The Sacrifice
    WARNING: This book contains one bad-ass demon, spectacular shagging, a feisty American heroine, and one very hot, very British, knife-wielding shrink.

    Book 2 - The Ascension
    WARNING: This book contains one fabulously feisty redheaded heroine, one hunky holy-man-turned-rebel vampire, a group of corrupt religious zealots, women in chains and plenty of scorching hot sex.

    Book 3 - The Revolution
    WARNING: This book contains spectacular magical ass-kickings, copious amounts of blistering sex, one super-sexy, gun-toting heroine, and a very delicious, very powerful sorcerer…who sometimes sports fangs.

    Book 4 - The Temptation
    Warning: This book contains raging winter storms, truly inspiring sex, a kick-butt heroine, and one very hot, dirty-talking cowboy…who’s sometimes furry

    @Sinh -
    I did have input on the cover designs. Samhain is fabulous about allowing the author to provide input. We put in our 2 cents and then the cover artist reviews it before going to town. I was thrilled with the result. She caught the mood I was hoping for perfectly. What talent!

  13. Congratulations!! I would love to be able to spend all my days immersed in a world of magic. I also wish I had more time to read. Thanks for the writing.

  14. Congrats on the new release. This sounds like a great series.

  15. congrats on the new release. I haven't read any of your books yet, but they sound amazing and am dying to dive into them. This series sounds amazing
