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

What if we aren’t the only inhabitants on this planet? What if there are others on different planes that we can’t see, while they can see us? What if they monitor the portals between the dimensions and travel from one to the other?

Those were the questions that intrigued me as I began to plot the first book – Unending Desire – of my paranormal romance series Outlawed Realm. Each of the five realms on Earth is inhabited, however only those on E2 (for Earth 2) are able to see the others through portals through which they sometimes travel.

As I began to see more of the plot in my mind, I considered that it would be an ideal and fun vehicle to explain the origins of many myths such as vampires, werewolves and where those who died really go.

In Unending Desire, I tackled the vampire question as Andris and his unholy followers stalk Regina, my heroine, and Nikoli, a scientist from E2 who loves her. Nikoli has never known passion—that’s not allowed in his dimension. When he meets Regina, who’s from the plane we know (uninhibited as all hell), wow. He’s a goner. Can’t keep his hands off her. 🙂

With the vampire question answered, I moved on to Illicit Desire, Book Two. In it, I created a world on E4 where pleasure slaves are imprisoned by E2’s rulers. Lukan and Arez have never known freedom or love…until they meet each other. Then, all bets are off as they fight to escape the Pleasure Palace, and the realm’s many monsters, then travel through the portal to E1 and a future neither of them believed possible.

Shameless Desire, Book Three of the series, releases April 23. In it, I introduce Kuma, the Alpha werewolf from E4 who’s swept from that dimension into E1 where he meets Gwen. Never has she met a man as virile or as brave. When his presence puts her into danger, Gwen fights by Kuma’s side for their freedom and love.

To give you a hint of the storyline for Shameless Desire, here’s the blurb:

4_23 ShamelessDesire-RPassion without limit. Carnal hunger that knows no bounds.

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.


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.


Shameless Desire and the other books in the series offer danger, suspense, romance, smokin’ hot sex and love that won’t be denied.
