Hot doesn’t begin to describe the incredibly inventive encounters each couple engages in, although some might gauge the timing of such naughty behavior as out of place considering the threat of imminent danger. But it fits with the primitive alpha male marking his territory and the modern woman who snares him. As it’s obviously part of an ongoing series, the book’s epilogue introduces new characters and a new thread, adding buzz about future installments of the Outlawed Realm and possible plot developments.

Gwen is rescued from abduction by an escaped werewolf named Kuma, and that one event changes her life forever. Gwen and Kuma are instantly attracted, but they need a plan for survival before the alien abductors return. Two worlds collide, quite literally, when dual storylines combine to bring Kuma and Gwen together with another couple facing an equally dangerous fate. Together they plan to bring an end to the evil Vakar and his murderous guards, making the portals between realms safe, once and for all. (SAMHAINPUBLISHING.COM, dl $5.50)
