Overview

Passion without limit. Carnal hunger that knows no bounds.

Outlawed Realm, Book 3

Within Earth's five dimensions, nothing is as it seems...and desire is never far away.

In E4's jungle, Kuma was the Alpha werewolf, bent on revenge against the hated guards. Swept with them into the E1 dimension, now he prowls Seattle at night, stopping the thugs from abducting women for use as sex slaves in E4's Pleasure Palace.

On her way home from her nursing job, Gwen senses danger in the night's shadows-an instant before a stranger attacks. Clinging to consciousness, she watches the impossible, a wolf fighting him off...protecting her. She wakes in her own bed, convinced it must have been a dream until she sees Kuma in human form. Virile, intense. A man like no other.

Within his powerful embrace, Gwen experiences rapture she didn't believe existed. His unrestrained lust and burning need end her loneliness, though not the menace they face. The guards are a constant threat in their hunt for women and their determination to see Kuma dead. Together, he and Gwen must fight-for his life, her freedom, their future.

Warning: Out-of-this-world sex and a romance to die for. Features a hunk whose inner beast won't be tamed, and the woman who craves his most shameless desire.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“This is a book not to be missed. Tina Donahue has done amazing work that shines way above and beyond the average. The erotic scenes are so hot and the love affair so compelling that I couldn’t put the book down.”
—Long and Short Reviews on Unending Desire

“Prolific erotica author Donahue delivers a tale so steamy, it comes with a warning.”
—Library Journal on Unending Desire

“Like your favorite mixed drink, The Yearning is the perfect blend of unbridled sex and sweet tenderness.”
—Two Lips Reviews

Library Journal
The blurb on Donahue’s third title in her “Outlawed Realm” series (after Illicit Desire) promises “out-of-this-world sex and a romance to die for.” The author certainly delivers on the first of those promises, if not the second. In this urban fantasy/sf sphere, the earth has five dimensions or layers or something. Earth as we know it is E1. The hero, Kuma, is from E4 and has come through a portal to E1 to hunt the guards (subhumans) who murdered his mate. Once here, he realizes that the guards are kidnapping E1 women and taking them back to E4 to the Pleasure Palace to serve as sex slaves. When Kuma sees a guard attempting to kidnap Gwen, a nurse heading home from her job at the hospital, he steps in to save her and takes her home. And that’s all she wrote. Gwen sees Kuma through a drug-induced haze and is instantly hot for him; Kuma returns her lust. From then on they are pretty much thinking about or having sex all while trying to hunt guards and keep Gwen safe. Assisting them in their quest are characters from the earlier books in the series who also spend their time either thinking about or having sex—in all its variations.

Verdict While there is an attempt at world-building here, most of the backdrop feels like just that, a backdrop, barely supporting thinly drawn characters who never seem real. Not recommended.—Jane Jorgenson, Madison P.L., WI

    The third book in the Outlawed Realm is an intriguing action pac

    The third book in the Outlawed Realm is an intriguing action packed and erotic romance. I was totally caught up in the story from beginning to end and I love that the previous characters are still involved in helping the other victims from the evil rulers. I can’t wait to see what happens in the next story and find out who... well I can’t say because then I would be spoiling the epilogue.

    The traffic coming through the portals that connect Earths vario

    The traffic coming through the portals that connect Earths various dimensions is increasing, but the traffic is flowing both ways and some of the travelers are not willing. Kuma has decided that his vengeance upon the palace guards can happen on E4 or E1. He is not particular in the location as long as the guards meet his form of punishment. While Kuma is stalking guards to take down he sees them attack a woman that has gotten his interest. He is shocked to see the guards attack her due to her not physically resembling the females they usually choose to take to the Pleasure Palace.




    Gwen has street smarts. She is used to taking care of herself. She pays attention to her surroundings. She knows when things are not as they should be. She just doesn’t know how to fight a being not of her plane. Luckily for Gwen she has acquired Kuma’s notice. Gwen accepts Kuma’s origins and wants to help his plight any way she can. I love her shameless ulterior motives. She wants to keep Kuma and all of his alpha male sexiness to herself on her plane.




    Kuma has more than saving Gwen on his wicked mind. Oh my Kuma is one exceedingly hot and naughty werewolf. This book is hot. The sex scenes are plentiful and erotically sexy. Kuma’s fellow pack mate Teeko has a small side romance. Readers are treated to several romantically involved couples in this sexy tale.




    There is a problem that begins in Unending Desire it rears its ugly head in Illicit Desire and is mentioned several times in Shameless Desire. The possibility of a resolution will obviously continue into the next book. I feel that under certain circumstances this could be seen as a tension builder, it is not working that way with this series. The Seattle detective situation feels drawn out and mentioned as only an afterthought. Perhaps it is still has the possibility to expand further. There is now the problem of people disappearing under unusual circumstances.




    The Outlawed Realm series needs to be read in order. Nikoli and Regina from Unending Desire have fairly large roles in Shameless Desire. There is also a change in methods of acquiring new slaves for the Pleasure Palace that storyline needs to be followed from the beginning. Readers are treated to an update on Lukan and Arez. They still have the sweetest relationship out of all the characters in this series. It was nice to know that their happily ever after continues to get better and better.
