Romance Book Review: Pamela Palmer's Hearts Untamed
Series Connection: Feral Warriors
Genre: Parnormal/ Romance
Originally appeared in the print anthology Bitten By Cupid, Heart's Untamed, is a story featuring two Therians who are not actually Feral Warriors. There are appearances by three of the Feral Warriors in within the context of the story, however they don't play a part of the major characters of the story. The Therians are the original race of the Feral Warriors. At one time all Therians could shift into animal, however now the only Therians that can shift are the Feral Warriors. All Therians are still immortal. This book was written and originally released in 2010 as part of an anthology. Just a few months back, Pamela Palmer re-released the novella as an e-book. For those who are following the series, this story can stand alone, but was written before Jag, Kouger and Hawk had their own novels. I had totally missed this story, even though I am a fan of the Feral Warriors series, so I for one am glad the author decided to release this separately or I would have missed it all together.
Zee has decided to head home after ten year after hearing that the one time friend Julianne has been playing Beethoven. While some may not understand the importance of this Zee knows that it is only when Julianne is the most trouble that she uses her musical talent to play Beethoven. Zee realizes right away how much he hurt Julianne by leaving so abruptly all those years ago and now he is also beginning to realize what he has missed by not returning sooner.
Julianne is in real trouble and so are her closest friends, although they don't know it. One of the Ilina, a race that was thought to have been eradicated a thousand years ago, is threatening to harm Julianne and her friends if she doesn't find a necklace hidden in their home. Julianne has searched everywhere she can think of and it is not anywhere to be found.
To make matter worse she has just found out Zee is coming home. She loves Zee with all her heart but he can never know her deepest and darkest secret, because it could mean his life if he ever found out.
Nicely done intermittent story. This is also a good story to learn about Melisande, the Ilina Julianne is being threatened by. The new Feral Warriors book, A Love Untamed, came out last month and features Melisande and Feral Warrior Foxx.
Ten years after he spurned Julianne's declaration of love and then vanished, Zee's back—only this time he's the one being rejected. Julianne's in desperate straits, and involving Zee could jeopardize his immortality. But he won't take no for an answer—and Julianne's about to discover that her former love is even wilder than she thought…
