Forbidden Angel by Megan D. Martin

Hello there faithful followers. It's been a busy week here at Fox Tales. Today, we're honored to feature author Megan D. Martin and her latest release, Forbidden Angel. Stay tuned for my review and a chance to win an awesome prize. So let's get to it.

When captured by the Nazis, Sarah finds herself in a concentration camp that not only brings her closer to death...but closer to love.
Sarah Brenner, a young Jewish woman, is terrified when she finds herself in the heat of a railcar bound for a work camp in Nazi Germany. For years she, along with her mother and sister, had hidden from the SS, but no one could hide forever. Her hatred for those who have enslaved them is ever-growing, especially when they arrive and she encounters the shockingly handsome Nazi doctor who can’t seem to keep his eyes—or hands—off her.

Aurel Rothstein is not your everyday concentration camp physician. The endless prisoners and lack of care he's allowed to give have made him numb to the work he so coveted. It isn’t until he comes face to face with a beautiful prisoner that his heart becomes involved with his job—a forbidden and fatal move to any Nazi.

 When a vile soldier takes direct interest in Sarah, she will be forced to make a choice that will change her life forever: ignore the pull toward the handsome doctor or give in to the forbidden passion he awakens with only a look. Either way they both risk everything...

My Review:
Honestly, I admit to being taken aback by the setting of this book. As a long time romance reader, I’ve not read anything set in a concentration camp. Not to say they don’t exist, just that perhaps I’ve steered clear of them due to the abject pain and horror of the subject matter.

That being said, I was pleasantly surprised by this book. Ms. Martin did her research, and created characters that fit the setting perfectly. For a short novel, the pace is fast and the storyline is packed with action that will keep you wondering what will happen next.

Sarah finds herself, her mother and her sister incarcerated in a concentration camp at the end of WWII. She bravely fights for their safety, as well as her own. Although things don’t always go her way, her world really turns upside down when she meets Aurel. Who would have thought she’d find love under these conditions?

Aurel, the head physician for the camp, has realized what he has done over the last few years is horrid, but that doesn’t erase the horrors he’s committed. With Sarah he’s able to forget, however briefly, that he’s lost any chance he might have for happiness or a normal life after the war.

I wasn’t too sure there would be a believable HEA, but this author pulled it off brilliantly.

The only thing I would change about this book, would be to make it true novel length so we could explore the characters and setting with greater depth. 

A copy of this book was provided by the author in exchange for my honest review.
