    Forbidden Flame is book #1.5 in the Ruthless Warlords series by Alison Aimes. This series takes place on Anarcheim, a parallel Alphaverse galaxy in a dark future seeded with varied forms of alien life. Alpha crime boss Magnus Avitus has been falsely accused of murdering his father. As a result he has been exiled to the Forbidden Sector. Life here is dark and dangerous but slowly Magnus has gained respect from the fellow inhabitants and has become a leader there. But, his plan is to get revenge on Forbidden Flame is book #1.5 in the Ruthless Warlords series by Alison Aimes. This series takes place on Anarcheim, a parallel Alphaverse galaxy in a dark future seeded with varied forms of alien life. Alpha crime boss Magnus Avitus has been falsely accused of murdering his father. As a result he has been exiled to the Forbidden Sector. Life here is dark and dangerous but slowly Magnus has gained respect from the fellow inhabitants and has become a leader there. But, his plan is to get revenge on the person who sent him here. He will take back leadership of the Approved Sector and those that wronged him will pay. “Amidst all the dirt, filth, and castoffs that made up the Forbidden Sector, she shone like a perfect jewel. A treasure in a sector that was one giant trash bin.” All Omega’s have a gift. But Amora Rose’s gift is more like a curse. She has spent her life running to protect herself and others. But now she finds herself once again captured with the intention of using her as a weapon. She has plans to escape the bag she is being held in, only before she can get away, she is discovered. Only now it’s not by force she is held captive, but by an alpha whose eyes awaken something in her she never imagined she’d feel. “With him, she didn’t feel like a freak, but like a beautiful female. With him, she felt almost whole.” I love fated mates stories. I love that instant when their eyes connect and the sparks fly. This story did not disappoint. Both of these characters are strong, willful and passionate. Both have been wronged. Both are determined to protect the other at all costs. And both will go to whatever lengths needed to do so. “Fate had altered his course. Exile had reshaped him.” This series is dark and gritty, sexy and steamy, sweet and suspenseful. The next book in the series will be titled Savage Prince. It can’t get here fast enough.

    3.75 stars Forged in Fire "Some things cannot be molded to your will. I will always be a weapon and a danger to you and those around me.” This is a great little Omegaverse novella. I loved this heroine! She was sarcastic & had a few funny quips, especially in the beginning of the story. It's always refreshing to have an Omega that doesn't fight the bond/her attraction to the Alpha and recognizes what he could provide for her. Except in this situation she did fight her attraction to the 3.75 stars Forged in Fire "Some things cannot be molded to your will. I will always be a weapon and a danger to you and those around me.” This is a great little Omegaverse novella. I loved this heroine! She was sarcastic & had a few funny quips, especially in the beginning of the story. It's always refreshing to have an Omega that doesn't fight the bond/her attraction to the Alpha and recognizes what he could provide for her. Except in this situation she did fight her attraction to the Alpha, but the conflict wasn't between the Alpha/Omega, it had to do with the Omega's gift. In Alison Aimes Ruthless Warlord series all the Omegas have gifts, and I really liked what she did with the heroine's gift in the book. I can't imagine how isolated the Omega must have felt and admired her strength through adversity. As usual, Aimes' writing was fast-paced and vibrant. Some of my favorite qualities of her writing are her descriptions of the characters and setting: The male had black skin dipped in gold that made him look like a literal god. Dark hair curled around his horns and the nape of his neck and looked just unruly enough for her to want to run her fingers through it. On top of that, he had a trimmed beard that only highlighted his carved cheekbones, sculpted jaw, and sharp blade of a nose. I found the descriptions of the Romealons fascinating and hope we get to see more of them in future books. If you're brand new to Alison Aimes and not sure about trying her out, this novella is currently only 99 cents on Amazon. I think it would be a good way to try out the author, and it includes a big excerpt of Ruthless King towards the end. But what she liked best of all about her latest jailer was the haunted look in his incandescent gaze. As if he knew pain. Betrayal. Struggle. As if, like her, he’d experienced set back. Instinct cried for her to slide to her knees and worship at his feet. Care for him. Heal him. But that was not her lot in life. And chances were good that, like always, she was allowing for far more decency in the Alpha than he deserved. This ended up being a touching love story (with insta-love for sure). It's a standalone novella with a HEA. No cliffhanger. My only gripe is this left me wanting to read the next book in Ruthless Warlords series sooner rather than later. I hope the author is busy writing :) *ARC kindly provided by the author

I loved Magnus & Amora (+ their personalities!) so much, they complement eachother greatly! I DEVOURED this story in 3hrs❤. This story takes place in Anarcheim, a parallel Alphaverse galaxy in a dark future seeded with varied forms of alien life. Magnus; Ruthless, Loyal, Protective; Is a Powerful Alpha wrongly accused of killing his Father & exiled to the Forbidden Sector. Here, He Soon ruled after Defeating & uniting the Warring clans. Revenge & Justice is all he wants. The Book starts with Him & his team intercepting a Prized Package going to his Uncle (The Bad Guy!), This maybe his ticket to go to the approved sector, getting revenge & taking his throne back. It specifically says not to open it, But as always Curiosity wins & they open it & see... Amora; Sweet, Kind, Beauty with Brains, Fiery; Is an omega who knows betrayal & pain like no other. On the run for years. Like every omega, she has a gift too. But it's more like a curse of Fire which never goes away & someone always wants to use her. From the moment they see eachother, they know they're fated. I especially liked how he didn't see Fated Mates as a curse but a gift (Nikolai is his.. Friend!) & Cared for her so deeply❤. They understood the Pain. Their attraction is Fiery, they want, NEED, eachother. But will her Power prove to be a Hindrance..Or a Strength? Through The Arrival, Fated Surprise, Sexy Alphaness, Fear, Her Power's Live Demonstration *oooh!!*, Dungeon party, Orgasm time & Swoons... “I could never regret your arrival...You’re mine, fated mate, and there is no escaping the bond between us.” Then Attacks, Their talks, Her fear of hurting him, The Plan.. She made him realise that there's more to life than just revenge. That the life he's made himself for here...Fits him. & Her. "Fate had altered his course. Exile had reshaped him. He was done trying to return to what he’d once been. He was ready to embrace what he’d become: an exiled king of fellow outcasts and the luckiest bastard around, thanks to his extraordinary mate." We do get Action Here & Magnus does get Justice *Hell ya!*. Courtesy of Amora💘. Cue Scary for him scenes, Heart-racing Times & Celebratory Mating HOTness!

    For me Forbidden Flame was a quick, fun read. I loved the sci-fi setting and there was just enough world building so that I didn't feel lost within the story. I would have loved more background on Amora and Magnus, but it would have needed to be a much longer book to achieve that. Given this is a novella I was more than happy with the focus being on the two main characters and establishing the connection between them, along with some surprising character growth.

Given this is a novella I was more than happy with the focus being on the two main characters and establishing the connection between them, along with some surprising character growth. In some ways I was left, hmm, frustrated isn't quite the right word but I can't pinpoint what one I need! The story actually had enough substance to have been made into a full length book, and part of me wishes it had been. Novella's always require sacrifice in order to complete the story within the allotted word count. In this case we had very easily achieved resolutions and whilst they didn't spoil the story, it did leave it feeling a very lightweight tale. Personally I would have preferred more emotional depth to have been explored, but equally I loved the action that took place. Amora and Magnus were both immensely likeable characters. I loved that Amora had fire -every pun intended - and fought her Alpha for what was right. Magnus was totally scrumalicious, he may have been a little bull-headed at times but his adoration of, and care for, his little omega was divine. They were an incredibly well-matched pair in both temperament and outlook, and whilst this relies very much on instalove, the fated mates element allowed me to overlook the speed with which their emotions progressed. This foray into the Ruthless Warlords world has definitely whetted my appetite and I shall definitely be exploring it more in the future.

    Wooooo, is right y'all!! Magnus and Amora's story was literal fire. Like shooting fire from her skin and burning you to ash immediately if you touch her fire. Yet Magnus will do anything to protect her, to be with her. Her soul calls to him, she's his fated mate. He is the alpha she needs, and he will stop at nothing to find a way for them to be together.

She wants to trust him that he will never give her up and they will be able to be together soon. The build up was delicious. They couldn't touch but that didn't mean they couldn't find ways to be intimate together. The final culmination was down right dirty. This was a great addition to the Ruthless Warlords series. I love these rough and dangerous Alphas who will stop at nothing to love and protect their fated mate Omegas. I can't wait for the next one!! I received an ARC by the author for an honest review. Even though this is an ARC review, I will always shoot you straight.

Forbidden Flame was full of fiery goodness, arrogant alpha deliciousness, and all sorts of sizzling chemistry. I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. Blamed for a crime he didn’t commit, Magnus was exiled to the Forbidden Sector, and he’s out for revenge. And redemption. But when he intercepts a package, things change, and his world is turned upside down. Amora has a gift, a very powerful one. Although she sees it as a curse. But that curse didn’t stop Magnus from wanting her, needing her. He knew they were meant to be together. So he did anything and everything to ensure that would happen. Amora loved the way he made her feel, like a woman and not a freak. Like she had more to give than just the use of her gift. He was enamored with her, mesmerized. The way she sparked everything in him, changed him, making him rethink things and re-evaluate his decisions, and see what’s more important in his life. I could FEEL the bond, their connection. The way they would do anything for each other, even if it gets them killed, was just beautiful. The raw intensity between them sizzled! This author’s ability to transport me to another place and time so easily amazes me. As I read, I was there. I could see, because she showed me with her words. Those talented words pull me in, grab ahold of me, and do not let go of me until the very last word. I FELT. EVERYTHING. I’ve noticed this with each book I read from this author. Her words slay me. Every. Time. The storytelling, the world-building, the characters you connect with and fall for immediately. The action and passion and tingles and the pure white hot, steamy-licious, sexy scenes...all excellent. Let’s just go ahead and talk about those steamy scenes. Ms. Aimes always knocks it out of the park with those scenes...the ones that make you grip your kindle a bit tighter, make you tingle in all the right places, and maybe even having you looking at your husband a certain way, with a sparkle in your eye…with a couple of new ideas for later. *heart eyes* If you’re looking for action, it’s in here. If you want bossy alpha sexiness, you’ll get it. If you like to feel everything you read, oh…you will definitely feel all the things. This dark & delicious novella was a perfect addition to the series!

    It's hard for me to give novellas more than 3 stars, because there's just so little to go off. But this is certainly a decent contribution to the omegaverse genre. Fast, obviously, but I don't mind insta-lust too much really, and the characters (what we see of them) are likeable. Looking forward to the next full-length instalment in the series.

Neither are looking for love, but on first sight, an Alpha/Omega Bond has them both declaring "Mine!" There is plenty of hot, steamy action packed into this stand alone novella and I guarantee there is a happy ever after for this couple. As it will release in time for Valentine's Day, I compare it to how I like my chocolate, Dark and Sweet, and oh so Yummy! And luckily, there are so many great characters in this book and in Book 1, I see all kinds of possible books to spin from these. Loved it!

    Forbidden Flame is a fantastic Omegaverse story. This story follows Alpha Magnus and his omega Amora Rose. Magnus has been exiled to the Forbidden sector after being falsely accused of murder. Amora Rose ends up with Magnus after the package he is to deliver ends up being her. A terrific story filled with suspense, twists, sizzling chemistry, love, and amazing characters. I loved everything about this book and can’t wait for the next in the series.

    Good plot with an heroine who has special attributes. The H is the Alpha of alphas, wrongly imprisoned. Once he sees the h everything stops for him. Her influence changed the lives of everyone. It was good, but she was too sweet for me - covered in glitter? I skipped pages as I found the middle of their story boring and overly descriptive - too much Telling.

    This book was Omegaverse Alchemy. Alison Aimes was able to perfectly mix scorching hot chemistry with sweet devotion, erotic sex with adoration, action with heartwarming moments, humor with angst, and protective, possessive, motherf**king alphas with fiery, compassionate omegas. These ingredients alone make flimsy, lackluster brass, but when you combine them with a deft hand, you get sci-fi romance gold. Well done, Alison. I am in awe of you once more.

Magnus, the big strong, alpha of alpha's, has been exiled to the Forbidden sector after being falsely accused by his family of murdering his father. His sole focus is revenge and taking back what is rightfully his. That is until one day Magnus intercepts smugglers who are delivering a valuable weapon. Though no one knows what the weapon is…and everyone knows…you never open the package! Right? Wrong. Magnus opens the package and inside is a beautiful omega, tied and bound. There are instant sparks and Magnus instantly feels an overwhelming desire to make her his. Magnus is about to be in for a shocking surprise…things are not going to go as expected with the beautiful omega. Like many omegas Amora Rose was blessed with a gift, or a curse depending on how you look at it? Some omegas grow out of their gifts, but that is not the case for Amora. Her life has been difficult, she has been captured, held hostage, and made to do terrible things. All she wants to live her life without scrutiny and fear, but that will never happen considering her gift. Novella's for me are hit or miss. Sometimes I am left wanting more and sometimes the author manages one heck of a punch into a novella. Forbidden Flame is the latter. This novella was chock full of story, twists, turns, lust, love, world building, fantastic characters, and a swoon worthy ending! Swoon worthy! It took me all of like 1 chapter to fall in love with Magnus. This is a terrific addition to the Ruthless Warlords omega verse, where alphas may just fall in love with their omegas and the omegas may just capture an alpha by the heart. I enjoyed Ruthless King and I have enjoyed Forbidden Flame; I cannot wait to see what comes next in this universe! This gets a must-read recommendation from me!

    This dystopian Omegaverse novella reads like a cross between Hamlet, https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0293662/, and Firestarter. Here we get a deposed Alpha mafia "prince" and the omega he accidentally acquires. They're drawn to each other instantly (of course), but can they navigate Amora's superpower gift?

Note: I don't consider this particularly "dark" since Magnus never harms her, but everyone has their own version of that impossibly vague word. If you're looking for a consensual Omegaverse short story featuring two likable characters who exhibit growth, you may enjoy this. I liked Amora, who was funnier, more level-headed, and possessed more agency than many generic Omegas; and I loved that Magnus was totally devoted to her and valued her for more than just smexy times. I did enjoy this and do recommend it, but it was very talky and highly repetitious -- particularly noticeable in a short book. While the "gift" aspect was an interesting innovation, Magnus and Amora engaged in endless conversations about its dangers, and, after far too long, said nothing new ("I can't stay"/"You have to stay" is pretty much how this went). Tip to authors: If you're not imparting new information or moving the action along, take it out. Given the abbreviated length, this space should have been allotted to more erotic acts, world-building, and or showing and not telling. Side Note: The "scent masks" have new meaning in the world of COVID. 3 stars. The prose was well-edited; I do like this author; and I will read the rest of the series.

    I loved this novella that Alison Aimes added to the Omegaverse! It was barely a taste to whet my appetite, but also just enough to keep me on edge eagerly anticipating her next release. Forbidden Flame brought the heat, tension, and the big, strong Alpha all in this short story. Alpha Magnus Avitus has been exiled to the Forbidden Sector. It's a desolate place where trash, unused and discarded items and people are tossed.

Forbidden Flame brought the heat, tension, and the big, strong Alpha all in this short story. Alpha Magnus Avitus has been exiled to the Forbidden Sector. It's a desolate place where trash, unused and discarded items and people are tossed. Magnus went there after he was almost murdered and then falsely accused of murdering his own father. Now he wants justice and revenge. His first real step towards seeking retribution is intercepting a weapon that is on his way to his uncle, the very man who is actually responsible for killing his father. What Magnus doesn't realize is that by taking this weapon, he is actually changing the projection of his future, but it could cost him the very thing he never knew he wanted...love. Amora Rose has lived a very lonely life. As an outcast and a freak, she is an unwanted omega, aside from her gift. That is until her gift becomes a burden and she is once again tossed aside and left all alone. When Amora meets Magnus she too warns him she will only bring pain and suffering, but the stubborn Alpha does not listen instead claiming her as his own, something she has never had. Perhaps, living among the other discarded people she too has found her place, if she can get through to Magnus that love is more important than revenge, but do Alphas ever listen?  Forbidden Flame may be a novella, but it still packs all the heat, suspense, and great story that Alison's longer books do. It's a great addition to the Omegaverse series!

    Aimes has sucked me into her Omegaverse world. This was a novella but it felt like a full length story. Magnus is an alpha that has been exiled to the Forbidden sector for killing his father. His goal is to take revenge on those that falsely accused and exiled him and take back his throne. Magnus intercepts a weapon in a bag that smugglers claim is valuable and once he opens the bag he realizes it's an Omega and she is HIS.

Magnus intercepts a weapon in a bag that smugglers claim is valuable and once he opens the bag he realizes it's an Omega and she is HIS. Amora Rose is a Omega that has had it rough and is always used as a weapon by others due to the nature of her gift. All she wants from life is a peaceful existence and to find someone that will love her and not use her like so many others have. When she sees Magnus, her reaction to him is like nothing she has experienced but she knows she can never have him. I loved Magnus. He was so protective and truly wanted to give Amora the world. Amora, despite being an Omega was strong and fierce. I love that Aimes makes her Omegas strong and resilient and her Alphas brutal to everyone but their mates. Can Magnus exact revenge? Will Amora and Magnus be able to be together? For a novella, this was really good and I didn't feel jipped at all. I can't wait to read the other books in this series.

    I am a sucker for these combination of Mafia Alien and Omegaverse with a special gift to the h and this was a really cool twist of it. Really well woven story - brisk, comprehensibly told, believable with emotion and depth and of course way too short, even the HEA and Epilogue - everything screams "more" even if it is a novella. The characters are wonderful and strong in places that should be otherwise occupied - great and brave and very satisfying - burning great!

With the wish-you-what claim of the satisfied reader, I now expect a .5 excursion into the Alphavers between all the main books in the series, because the secondary characters are also seductively interesting - the two 2nd in command of this novella are ideal for an impossible, absolute no-go RH variant. If not in the Forbidden Sector, then where? Great - I want more!

    A somewhat enjoyable sci-fi omegaverse short romance. I enjoyed some things about this story, but I think maybe it was just too short? I loved Ruthless King, the first full length novel in this series, but I found the characterization and development of the romantic relationship in this story underwhelming. The world building was a little scant, but the plot and pacing were quick and exciting. I am not totally sure why, but I found reading this story unsatisfying.

Maybe my expectations were too high after how excellent the first novel, Ruthless King, was. Maybe the author is not especially great at the short format, but excels in the long format.

    A good omegaverse romance with the added story of family revenge. This was a novella so as expected it is a short read therefore you don't get the same impact and indepth connection you would with a longer read. I still enjoyed Magnus and Amoras story but not as much as book 1 (ruthless king) in the series. A good omegaverse romance with the added story of family revenge.

    A very quick read with plenty of steam between the Magnus and Amora.

Though this is a quick read with insta-fated mates, there is a plot and some drama concerning Magnus’ uncle and twin brother and how he was exiled to the Forbidden Sector. I received an ARC from the author and I am voluntarily leaving a review. I enjoyed the first book in this series and am looking forward to Book 2. This was a nice appetizer to keep my interest in this series until Book 2 is released.

    Excellent story and plot! Magnus has been exiled to the forbidden sector and intercepts a package destined for his traitorous uncle. Not doing spoiler so just know that package can be life changing, for all that encounter its contents. Enjoy!!!! I was provided an advance copy in exchange for an honest review.

    Forbidden Flame is a quicker read in the Ruthless Warlords world but is no less wonderful. I am so in love with this world that Alison has brought to life. An alien world with a mafia vibe. I mean come on who doesn't love that. In Forbidden Flame we get Alpha Magnus and omega Amora Rose. These two are so connected in their chemistry that it just flies off the kindle. Forbidden Flame may be a novella but it sure didn't read like one.

    Magnus Avitus is an Alpha who has been accused of killing his Father, exiled from his home and bent on revenge. Amora Rose is an beautiful Omega with a power she doesn't want and is tired of being used for it. “You’d be surprised what’s possible in such a wild, unpredictable place beyond the civilized borders. An unexpected package can become the gift of a lifetime. A stubborn, short-sighted, arrogant Alpha fool can turn into a wise man and fall claws over heels in love."
