Review: Illicit Desire (Outlawed Realm #2) by Tina Donahue

Pleasure that destroys all thought. Love that shatters all barriers.

Outlawed Realm, Book 2

Once a sex slave marked for termination, Lukan was miraculously liberated from E4’s Pleasure Palace, where E2’s fine, upstanding rulers secretly indulge their cravings for every imaginable vice. But freedom is not enough.

He left his heart behind with Arez. Within her fragrant, heated caress, he knew everything denied him. Rapture, contentment, tenderness…and love. Desperate to have her back in his arms, he embarks on a dangerous mission to deliver his untamed temptress from the certain death she does not know awaits her.

Within her velvet cage Arez knew only carnal submission and loneliness—until Lukan. But he has disappeared, and she senses something different in the way the supreme ruler is using her. Then, as if Lukan felt her longing for his strong arms and fevered kisses, he is there to sweep her from this twilight dimension to another.

But true freedom lies just out of his grasp. To reach the last portal—and their destiny—Lukan and Arez must first outwit an army of predators that hunt them. Human, subhuman…and monsters.

The second book in the Outlawed Realms series is a mesmerizing paranormal romance.

Once a sex slave marked for termination, Lukan was miraculously liberated from E4’s Pleasure Palace but he left his heart behind with Arez. With her he knows rapture, contentment and love, so embarks on a dangerous mission to deliver his temptress from the certain death she doesn’t know awaits her. Arex only knew carnal submission and loneliness until Lukan, but he’s disappeared and she senses something different in the way the supreme ruler is using her.  Then Lukan sweeps in from another dimension to rescue her but an army of predators lie between them and true freedom and they will have to outwit them all.

This steady to fast paced plot keeps captures the reader’s attention from the very beginning and keeps it throughout with action, suspense and romance.  The author brings the story to life and makes it believable with vivid imagery and details that have the reader feeling as if they are part of the story.  The characters are strong and compelling and easily related to and leave the reader wanting to know more.

The attraction between Lukan and Arez explode from pages and the frequent sex scenes are scorching hot with oral and anal sex scenes, bondage scenes and menage scenes as well.  The characters grab a hold of the reader’s heart as their story brings tears to the eyes and has the reader cheering them on with hope and smiles when they overcome the adversity of their life.

The author has created a world of inter-dimensional travel that crosses four Earth dimensions, she paints such clear pictures of her very different worlds that I found myself totally caught up in the story.  For added spice, there are also conflicts going on with other characters that also capture the reader’s attentions and have them wanting to know more.  I will certainly be reading more about these very intriguing characters. Illicit Desire
