Dark Refuge by Kate Douglas

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.

Recieved an ARC for an honest review I loved this book I have never read a book from this series but i was quickly looking for more when I completed it. Gabe and Emy grew up together until the unknown has them going in different directions. All roads lead to love when they are working together to stop and free women from a human trafficking and prostitution ring. Gabe and Emy were HOT as a couple. I def had some 'SAY WHAT!', moments but it only added spice to the book. I loved it and if you love paranormal books with a lot of spice, love and family bonding then you will love this book as well!

Received an ARC copy from Netgalley for a honest review. I've read Kate Douglas books before but this book was the first one of this series that I've read. I was definitely not disappointed. Loved it. Paranormal storyline filled with action, suspense, steamy sex and so intriguing I was drawn in from the beginning of the book. Loved Gabe and Emy's story as they search for answers on the black hole in Emy's memory while dealing with a human trafficking and prostitution ring along with mating issues. Loved all the characters in the book and plan on reading the other books in this series. I would recommend but readers should note book does contain steamy sex not just with mates but with multiple pack partners.

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!

Dark Refuge, Kate Douglas Review from jeannie zelos book reviews This is the fourth book in Kate's erotic paranormal series, and follows the preceding ones by building on the stories and experiences of the Chanku, a shapeshifting group. For many years people did not know they were part of this group, then it was discovered by accident, the pack formed and now the second generation, the children of those who had thought they were simply human but felt like misfits, are growing up. We meet the Alpha's son Gabe and daughter of the Alpha's close friend Emeline in this book, along with mated couple Alex and Anna, who all combine to rescue girls caught up in a human trafficking ring. There are big surprises here when the rescue is mounted, and Emy and Gabe grow very close, very quickly. Gabe always looked upon her as a little sister but she's not been home to the Packs Montana stronghold for many years, having difficulties with her parents. Gabe realises little Emy is now very grown up and gorgeous Emy, and they quickly become lovers and more...there's some ways to go though before they get a happy ending, with Emy having some darkness inside that she feels deeply but doesn't understand. We meet Goddess Eve briefly who steps in to help a rescue when things go wrong. As always with the Chanku the stories are very sexual and erotic, with both group and same sex scenes, and if these offend you then beware as they form an integral part of the pack nature. I liked Gabe and Emy, enjoyed the story but the mystisism that first attracted me to this series seems to be getting less prevalent, with the shapeshifting part of the heritage beome the main feature. It's a fun read, an interesting storyline and shows well how much prejudice there is ( I know its fantasy but if it were real what happens here is exactly what would happen). Stars: Four, solid story as always. ARC supplied via Netgalley

I love everything about this series!!! And once again Kate has brought to us a wonderful, exciting, a oh so passionate adventure into the lives of the Chanku!!! Her characters Gabe and Em, came together and brought so much to one another. And I loved how they found the six young ladies and excepted all of them into the pack even though two of them were human. Kate shows in this book and all of the books involving the Chanku, how all can be excepted and loved. I am so very awed by the family values that are shown in all of these books. She took a really bad situation and made it good with the six young ladies and shown that good can be found even out of the awful years they spent being abused. Thank you Kate for so many wonderful adventure that you take us on with your Chanku family!!! I really hope that there will be many more to come!!! Happy reading and writing* Teresa Lloyd
