What’s the Line Between Forbidden and Too Forbidden?

All the Lies We Tell by Megan Hart

Today we're thrilled to welcome Megan Hart (All The Lies We Tell) to Heroes and Heartbreakers. The line of what's taboo is constantly moving—what was forbidden 20 years ago, is mainstream today, and what is forbidden today... well, only time will tell! Megan is here today to talk about the moving line and what makes a relationship forbidden. Thanks, Megan!

Forbidden love. Why does it feel so delicious to want what’s wrong? There seems to be something inherently arousing about desiring what we know we shouldn’t. Sometimes it’s a chocolate sundae. Sometimes, it’s your super hot billionaire stepbrother, am I right?

It’s clear there’s no question that there’s an enormous difference between what’s truly wrong—non-consensual power play, the use of position to bully someone into providing sex, abuse of power—and what’s “wrong but so right.” The line might be razor sharp, but it’s there…and sometimes, it changes! Reader’s tastes shift, along with societal viewpoints. What used to be common in romances (bodice ripping, for example) falls out of favor, while subjects and plot points that would have been taboo cycle into popularity.

Don’t Deny Me: Exclusive Excerpt

Megan Hart

They had it all—until he broke her heart.
Now he’s back, and the heat between them cannot be denied…

Alice and Mick had it all: the happy days, the heartfelt evenings, the hot, slow nights. Mick knew she was too much, too good, more than he deserved…and when Mick couldn’t give her what she needed, in a moment of crisis, they lost everything. Torn apart, Alice tries to pry him out of her life and move on—until a not-so-chance meeting at an old friend’s party brings them face-to-face once more. Now they’re talking again, Alice can’t escape the burning in her chest whenever he’s near, the way his eyes still follow her around the room…but she won’t repeat the mistakes of her past. Because people, and relationships, can't really ever change.

But if Alice does decide to let him back into her heart—and into her bed—will Mick be ready to show her the man that he’s become…and take a chance on love? And can Alice ever trust him again?

Get a sneak peek at Megan Hart's Don't Deny Me (part 1 available on January 13, 2015; full book available on March 10, 2015) with an exclusive excerpt of a selected scene.

This is how it works, at the end of things. You stop finding reasons to talk. You make excuses to avoid each other, or worse, to fight. All the funny quirks and flaws you used to find endearing and charming, the bits and pieces that made you fall in love so hard and fast, they all start to curl your lip. In the beginning, you never want to leave, and in the end, all you do is struggle to stay.

And eventually, you stop struggling.

—Alice to Mick

Alice Clark hadn’t been to Bernie’s place in about ten years, but nothing outrageous had changed. The slim saplings planted in perfect formation in the backyard to be used as bases for the softball and kickball games had turned into thick-branched shade trees. The garden had been expanded. The furniture in the living room had been rearranged but contained the same comfy, overstuffed chairs and sofas with plenty of tables for the placing of drinks. The floor-to-ceiling shelves still overflowed with books. The kitchen had been updated with new appliances, but the center island around which they’d always all gathered was the same, as were the wine and spice racks and the scent of something delicious simmering on the huge six-burner stove.

Every Part of You Resists Me: Exclusive Sneak Peek

Megan Hart

Every Part of You: Resists Me by Megan Hart

The dance has begun. Simone’s ready to follow all her desires, but reluctant Elliott isn’t ready to take the lead.

After teasing Elliott into going dancing with her, Simone seduces him. She knows what she wants and isn’t afraid of asking for it, and Elliott appears to be as eager as she is to see where their passion takes them. The sex is electric, but Elliott is taken aback by his response to her, and when Simone reveals her kink for pain to him, he’s unable to accept it and tells her he doesn’t want to see her again.

And then they’re both invited to the same party.

Get a sneak peek of part 2 of Megan Hart's Every Part of You e-serial with an exclusive scene from Every Part of You: Resists Me (available February 18, 2014).

He hadn't meant to go anywhere with her. Simone had cornered him in the lobby, and what could he say but that he'd been weak. Too long without a woman, too long without release, and Simone had a way about her that Elliott simply could not seem to shake.

Since that first meeting, he hadn't been able to stop thinking about her. The way she moved. The flavor of her mouth. And most of all, the way she reacted to him taking her flesh in his teeth. Pulling her hair. Other women squirmed or cringed, some even scolded or shouted or cried.
