Review @WolfTales - Dark Spirit by Kate Douglas (Spirit Wild #2)

Dark Spirit
Spirit Wild #2
by Kate Douglas

Goodreads blurb:  Romy Sarika has spent much of her life suffering at the hands of a sadistic cult leader. Twenty years earlier she watched him kill her mother, and now she awaits the same fate. But when the self-proclaimed prophet orders Romy killed, the wolf part of her rises up and for the first time she shifts. Managing to save herself, she leaves death and chaos in her wake.

Alone in the woods and badly injured, Romy is found by Jace Wolf and Gabe Cheval, two powerful and striking Chanku who help her heal and simultaneously unleash sensual desires in her that are as new and intense as her wolf-like abilities. But just as Romy’s opening herself to this new erotic world and the passionate connections she’s forming with both men, danger is closing in.

Bent on revenge and driven by bloodlust, cult members are pursuing the trio. Discovery could mean not just Romy’s death but destruction of the Chanku way of life. With their lives at stake and the Chanku race in jeopardy, the three must fight to save themselves and the future of their proud race.

About the Author:  Some people just seem to know they are meant to write, but it can still take a while to figure out exactly what their career will entail. Kate Douglas started out writing radio copy for a country western radio station in 1972, wrote and illustrated an educational cartoon strip for the American Mosquito Control Association for a number of years, was a newspaper reporter for a small town weekly where she covered everything from high school sports to drug busts, and then, in the mid-1980s, decided to write her first romance.

Many submissions and rejections followed.

In 1998, she published with a small ebook publisher before anyone knew what an ebook was, but it wasn't until 2005, a full twenty years after finishing that first romance, that she signed with a New York publisher.

In January 2006, Kensington Publishing launched their Aphrodisia imprint of erotic romance with Kate's Wolf Tales, a sexy paranormal series about a lost race of shapeshifters. Kate has continued on as the imprint's lead author, with twenty-one novels and novellas in the full Wolf Tales series. She also has a series with Kensington's Zebra imprint, DemonSlayers, and has just completed her latest Aphrodisia series, Dream Catchers, which opened with the NightShift anthology and her novella, Dream Catcher, followed by the novels Dream Bound and Dream Unchained.

Her next series, Spirit Wild, debuts April 30, 2013 with Dark Wolf. This is a spin-off series that takes place in the Chanku world readers first met in Wolf Tales. Characters are the grown children of the first Chanku.

Kate and her husband of over forty years have two adult children and six grandchildren. They live in the small town of Healdsburg, California, in the heart of the beautiful Sonoma County wine country.

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 unicorns - I loved it!!

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!  Yes, I got a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book!

The cover is very beautiful!!  I love when covers have the beast in both forms and such lovely beasts at that!!!

This is the 2nd book in the series and is for adults only due to the violence, discussion of rape, incest, and steamy scenes not involving the above mentioned reprehensible acts.

This book has me front the start, and I didn’t want to put it down.  Romy is an amazing character that you can definitely get behind and support.  Her strength through all she has endured shines through, and she is such an amazing female lead.  Loved her from the start even if it started with my tears!  This book is definitely an emotional rollercoaster, and it was an amazing journey.  Jace and Gabe are wonderful men who are full of life, love, and protective behaviors.  Wolf is also a pretty awesome addition to the traveling pack.  I was definitely not ready for the book to end, but I hope to hear more of these characters throughout the rest of the series.

I highly recommend this book to all shifter lovers especially if you like a unique Chanku take on shifters!  You will have to read to know what I mean!

Interested in reading??
