Time's Forbidden Flower, By Diane Rinella

**This is the sequel to Love's Forbidden Flower and is the final book in the series.**

An eternity of passion cannot be quelled by society.

Once upon a time Donovan assured Lily all of her dreams would come true. But how could he keep the promise of a fairy tale when her truest goals could not involve him, though her deepest desires did?

Now, Lily has it all—love, passion, a family, and the career of her dreams—with Christopher. But something is lacking. She and Donovan have spent the last ten years living apart, and the soul mates are eager to reunite. Can Donovan keep his promise to give Lily all she desires, even with Christopher in the way?

For Lily and Donovan, the past is a mirror to the future that cannot be shattered.

Donovan is convinced Lily has been his love for all eternity. Determined to unravel the past, they embark on a journey to discover where it all began. For centuries Donovan has stolen Lily’s heart while forced to suffer for his love. How much can a soul endure before the breaking point is reached and a monster emerges? Can the demons of the past be combated to pave the way for happiness in the next life? Or has the abuse suffered in this life already turned Donovan hell bound?

Time and again, one woman has destroyed their happiness. It’s time to silence her—once and for all.
Ravishingly sinful, witty, and controversial, Time’s Forbidden Flower, the sequel to Love’s Forbidden Flower, is a barrier breaking love story of time unwound. 
Past lives is something that has always fascinated me. There is something about them that does keep me wondering if what happens to us in our past can still affect us in our future. Or even still, will the promises that we make to each other now come back to haunt us in our future lives?

In Love's Forbidden Flower we meet Lily and Donovan. Two people who seem to be soul mates because of everything they have in common, and their ability to know what the other is thinking. Throughout the course of that book, we find out the things that both of them had went through. In this book, we get to find out what happened to them at the end of the first part of their story.

10 years after everything happened, Lily and Donovan are getting back to the way that things were before, with some exceptions. They each have their own spouses and children to take care of, but they once again know they can rely on each other when they need help with their lives. In this book, they are able to learn more about their past lives, and find out what it is that keeps drawing them to each other.

You can tell the amount of time and thought that went into this story, being able to describe the different parts of the past lives that Lily and Donovan shared together was just amazing. Understanding what it is that happened to them that has lead them to the point they are at now was also just great to finally find out!

One thing that I did enjoy about this book a lot more than Love's Forbidden Flower is the fact that the characters seemed more mature. My complaint about Lily's character in the previous book is that she seemed very self centered, in this book she isn't. She has finally gotten to the point where she is thinking of others, and not just herself. That showed a large amount of growth on her part.

All in all, I enjoyed this story and if you have read Love's Forbidden Flower, you should really check out this book!
