Review @WolfTales - Dark Refuge by Kate Douglas (Spirit Wild #4)

Dark Refuge
Spirit Wild #4
by Kate Douglas

Goodreads blurb:  Kate Douglas captivated the world of erotic romance with her groundbreaking Wolf Tales series, and she continues to push boundaries in her new Spirit Wild series. Dark Refuge is the fourth book in the series, following Dark Wolf, Dark Spirit, and Dark Moon.

“Kate Douglas manages to thrill you, entice you and leave you in wonder. I really enjoyed the steamy romance and delicious passion . . . in this dark and dangerous journey . . . I can’t wait to read more. 5 stars!”
—Krystal Malott for BTSeMagazine

Emeline Cheval has always felt a darkness in her soul, an emptiness she blamed on her controlling parents. After years of unrest, Emy has finally found some sense of peace by living quietly far away from her family and her pack. But her world is thrown into chaos when she discovers a fellow Chanku trapped in a human trafficking and prostitution ring. Now Emy must turn to the very pack she left behind for help.

On the outside Gabe Cheval has it all. Stunningly handsome and strong, he’s a prominent and valuable member of the pack—but he carries a fear that he will never find a woman of his own. He remembers Emy from his childhood, and he’s shocked when he goes to help her and discovers that the silly young girl has grown into a sensuous and beautiful young woman—one who tantalizes him with the sense that she could be the perfect mate to finally end his loneliness.

But even as Gabe and Emy come together to rescue the captive woman and explore the undeniable attraction building between them, the dark menace that lurks deep in Emeline’s heart threatens to push them apart. Through Gabe’s loving and erotic touch and Emy’s open and passionate trust in him, they uncover a horrible secret that could threaten the very core of the Chanku hierarchy.

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

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!  I bought this book because I like the series, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book!

The cover is nice though I imagined him with more hair!

This is the 4th book in this series!  I think you should read them in order because you will know and understand the characters better who show up in this book!  I like knowing back stories and what has happened when references are made.  This book is for adults only due to the steamy scenes and sensitive topics brought up.  You should be aware this book covers topics of abduction, rape, human trafficking and slavery.  There is also multiple partner scenes with F/M/M/F, F/F and M/M too.

This book had all sorts of things going on and all at once.  It is action packed.  I already liked Gabe before this book, but I could see he was a tad bit him oriented at times in this book.  He definitely saw the errors of his ways thanks to Alex.  Emy is strong and intelligent.  She has issues she didn’t even know about.  This book has a little of everything, and I couldn’t put it down.  The ending was special to at the Winter Solstice.  Kate’s writing makes the story come alive in your mind.  I can’t wait to read the next book Dark Terror!

I highly recommend to any Chanku loving shifter fans especially if you just love to enjoy shifter stories!  This story may not be for everyone because of sensitive topics, but you should make that choice for yourself!

Interested in reading??
