Desire Untamed (Feral Warriors Series #1) by Pamela Palmer

They are called Feral Warriors—an elite band of immortals who can change shape at will. Sworn to rid the world of evil, consumed by sorcery and seduction, their wild natures are primed for release . . .

Kara MacAllister's quiet small-town life is transformed forever the night a powerful stranger rips her from her home, claiming she is the chosen one—the key to his survival.

Spiriting her away into the rain-soaked night, Lyon reveals a truth Kara can barely credit. She's immortal, and the only one who can save his race. And deep within her, he arouses a fierce, primal hunger beyond anything she's ever imagined.

But only when their lives are threatened by an ancient evil will Kara and Lyon realize they have found a love they would risk their immortal souls to claim . . . and a powerful desire that could never, ever be tamed.

I love this book! Actually I love the entire Shape Shifter series. Once you pick up one book you won't be able to put it down until you've completely read the 3 books that is out. This series is more for adults. It will have you on the edge of your seat, just flipping through page after page, wanting to know what will happen next. This book is funny, witty, and sexy! I would completely recommend reading this book. And the great thing about this series is you can pick up any book and start reading without getting lost. You can read them in no particular order and still know what is going on. I can't wait for the next book to come out this year!

Preschool teacher Kara MacAllister lives a sedate life until Lyon, leader of the shapeshifting Therian Feral Warriors, tries to abduct her He and his band of eight guardian warriors need Kara, who as the Radiant has the power to channel energy to them so that these feral Warriors can find, fight, and kill the dreaded draden energy suckers. Kara is attracted to her kidnapper, but still wants to go home and forget about Feral Warriors even after he tells her she is almost immortal like all Therians and is the chosen one who can save the world from the energy eaters. He further insists she must perform the ritual of mate choosing to accomplish her save the world mission; she wants to say no, but realizes she has no choice. DESIRES UNTAMED is a fast-paced, graphically violent action-packed urban romantic fantasy. In some ways the exciting thriller feels like a mystery as the Feral Warriors, their Radiant and readers struggle to uncover the identity of their clever enemy. Ironically, the "Untamed" Palmer world is developed as is the passionate relationship between Kara and Lyon; yet none of the key characters including the lead couple, come across as more than two dimensional. Still sub-genre fans who relish a hot romance inside a vivid escapade filled thriller will enjoy reading the opening of Pamela Palmer's "Untamed" world. Harriet Klausner

DESIRE UNTAMED by Pamela Palmer, first in the Feral Warriors series is out June 30th, 2009! I discovered Pamela Palmer's books with her Nocturne series (I recommend these too!). So when I saw this series coming too along with her time travels as Pamela Montgomerie I've been elated since! The Feral Warriors are a race of 9 surviving Therians. Therians are an immortal shape shifters that are out there to protect their race as well as humans from Daemons. Daemons are evil! They try to take the power from the Feral Warriors and use the power wrong (bad ways). So these 9 Feral Warriors try to keep the Daemons at a minimum. The Feral Warriors need energy from the earth to shape shift. They get this energy from a Therian called A Radiant who is female. A Radiant gives the 9 Feral Warriors strength through energy that she radiant to them so they can shape shift and fight. The Feral Warriors use their strength to take out the Daemons. There are also Mages that use magic but they are rivals of the Feral Warriors. Once I got into this series, it was so smooth sailing on this 'world this author created. I was understanding from the first page on. Author Pamela Palmer so gives this series a visual picture of everything! Too her site has an area devoted to this series that explains this all along with the characters. The 9 Feral Warriors are 9 different shape shifters. The first book is starts where their past Radiant has died and they need a Radiant. The longer they don't shape shift, the worse each of these Feral Warriors get (they go 'into their skin', in other words, their animal comes out in their fighting mode and they fight among their Feral Warriors friends. Lyon, is the leader among the Feral Warriors. You will love the names this author created for each of the 9 Feral Warriors! I love Lyon but too I'm in love with many of them, especially Tighe and Paenther. And yes, the names are similar, sometimes, to what they shape shift to. Since these Feral Warriors need a Radiant to get stronger, As a leader of the Feral Warriors, Lyon leads the Feral Warriors to a ritual that binds one of them as a mate to the Radiant Kara. Kara, their Radiant, is living among humans and she has no ideas she's of the Therian's race. When she's taken to learn her skills as a Radiant, she is resistant to this whole cause being so new and so much change for her.Too she has falling in love with Lyon but he's appears through the ritual, not designated to be her mate. This author will take you through this whole process that will lead to a beautiful HEA and too set you up to anticipate every one of the Feral Warriors HEA. The romance and passion between Lyon and Kara is intense, romantic and sizzling! I for one so can't wait for their books! Great thing is that book two, OBSESSION UNTAMED is out the end of July and the 3rd book, PASSION UNTAMED is out at the end of August. So we'll have the treat of 3 books in a row (plus her Time Travel as Pamela Montgomerie SAPPHIRE DREAMS on July 7th!! I so hope to be able to get this and bring you a review. I too plan to read each of these books and review. Here's the blurb for DESIRE UNTAMED from Pamela Palmer's site as well as links for her site: Kara MacAllister's quiet small-town life is transformed forever the night a powerful stranger rips her from her home, claiming she is the chosen one - the key to his survival. Spiriting her away into the rain-soaked night, Lyon reveals a truth Kara can barely credit. She's

This book was such an emotional roller coaster! The story opens up with a short stint with the Ferals, but then jumps right to Kara’s life-changing night, when Lyon shows up and takes her home with him, whether she likes it or not. She’s heart-broken over the life she left, utterly terrified of the unknown before her, and completely addicted to her kidnapper. While Lyon tries to reassure Kara and make her comfortable, he knows how much the Ferals need her to assume her role as their Radiant, and she can’t help but be overwhelmed by their intensity. As Lyon tries to calm and protect her, he finds he’s unable to keep himself fully under control around her. She’s got him completely enthralled with her more-than-willing attitude and luscious, responsive body. When his beast gets the best of him, no one can tame the raging desire that flows out of him, except maybe Kara. It may just be too late when they finally figure that out. There are twists and turns along this ride. One minute I’m smiling to myself because a moment shared was so touching and sweet, and the next I’m crushed because of something that happens or that they’re reminded of. Just when you think they’re getting something right and everything will be ok, it all backfires and they’re in even deeper trouble. I also had some laugh out loud moments, such as when the Shaman orders everyone to get laid to rid them of magic. For some reason the song “Sexual Healing” then got stuck in my head *giggle*. There were a few mysteries that I could guess at pretty easily, but there were also questions that were much harder to answer and some surprises that I couldn’t see coming. We see primarily from either Lyon’s or Kara’s eyes, but occasionally from someone else’s when it’s pivotal to the plot, so we feel the impact of every event that’s experienced, especially the emotions Lyon and Kara feel when together. The book is very well written, and while it’s a romance about animalistic men, Pamela Palmer shows their gentle and caring side, and does it without using any vulgar language (not that it’s a bad thing). However, she does show their animalistic side in their rituals…let’s just say, they’re not shy.

Palmer’s world of immortals, daemons, and shapeshifters is fun, exotic, and extra animalistic. It’s hot in every way. Sex is a common theme in the Feral Warrior culture, so if you blush easily or are faint of heart, this may need to be put on the back burner. However, if you’re down for a little feral sizzle in your life to heat up these cold winter months, jump in bed with the Warriors. You won’t be sorry. Palmer taps into humanity’s wild side with this series, and is wonderfully unapologetic. Kara’s personality is one that can be admired, once she gets over her shock of the situation. Lyon is the kind of man that most women dream about: masculine, a little bossy, tender, loving, and not afraid to fight for what, and who, he loves. The warriors themselves are hilarious and create fantastic peripheral characters. You’ll be clamoring for the next book!
