Perfect for fans of Cleopatra’s Moon and the adult bestseller The Red Tent, this is the sequel to Forbidden, set in the unforgiving deserts of Ancient Mesopotamia. Jayden’s courage will be put to the test as she fights for her survival and the one she loves.
Jayden thought she had lost everything. After months of traveling in the desert, she discovers her beloved Kadesh is injured but still alive. However, the two must flee immediately, for the vengeful and jealous Horeb is on their trail, desperate to take Jayden back to be his bride.
The trek to the Southern Lands comes with heartache and danger, and as Jayden and Kadesh draw closer their destination, she realizes that even he has been keeping secrets from her…ones that will change everything.
Kimberley Griffiths Little’s riveting sequel to Forbidden will leave readers begging for Returned, the final installment in this epic trilogy.
