Kara MacAllister’s life is about to get turned around and thrown in a tailspin. Kidnapped from all that she knew, she finds herself thrust in a world where fantasy and reality collide and Kara finds out secrets from a past she never knew about. Lyon is determined to rid the world of evil and when he finds Kara, he knows a love so powerful it will take all both Lyon and Kara have to keep it. An ancient enemy is coming for them and if they don’t stop it, all will be lost-for Lyon and for Kara.
DESIRE UNTAMED is the first book in a thrilling new paranormal romance series. I was blown away by the sheer world building this author introduces the readers to. Full of intriguing characters, fast paced storyline and simmering passion, Ms. Palmer definitely gives the reader more than they ever imagined within the pages of DESIRE UNTAMED. A lyrical storyteller, Ms. Palmer keeps the tension on high as Lyon and Kara fight their rising passion as they deal with an ancient evil on top of it. Can these two immortals be able to defeat their foe and live happily ever after?
Meet Kara MacAllister, a quiet small town woman who finds her life thrown in a tail spin as a mysterious man kidnaps her and drops a bombshell upon her: She is Immortal and the key to his people’s survival. Sparks fly even as Kara tries to wrap her head around the secrets Lyon reveals to her while trying to figure out her place in the world she will now reside in. I really enjoyed the way Kara and Lyon interact. Between trying to deny their desires to figuring out ways to stop the evil stalking them, Ms. Palmer keeps the tension on high throughout even as you get pieces of the radiant one is, who the feral warriors are and the ones they have been battling for thousands of years. The secondary characters are intriguing and made me want to know more of their stories. The action was fast and the sex scenes, though a little over the top, carried the story along nicely.
DESIRE UNTAMED is a nice introduction to a new dark paranormal series that will keep you entertained till the very end and then running to the internet to see if there are more to come. Ms. Palmer definitely has a new fan and I am eager to read the next two books in the series in the future. If you enjoy a darker paranormal story, then grab DESIRE UNTAMED.
THIS IS NOT AN ENDORSEMENT OF THIS BOOK. THIS IS AN OBJECTIVE UNBIASED REVIEW.
