ARC Review Dark Wolf (Spirit Wild #1) by Kate Douglas

It is a new beginning for the Chanku. For so long they kept their shapeshifting ability secret, but now they have assimilated into the world in ways they once never thought possible. Still there are those who want to destroy them, with dark powers of their own…

A Bold New Beginning

The CEO of Cheval International, Lily Cheval chooses to live alone, but a series of rapes and murders leave her wary and worried for her fellow Chanku. Then she meets Sebastian Xenakis and the connection is intense and immediate. The son of a charismatic cult leader, Sebastian is a mysteriously sensual man who uses magic to shift into wolf form. He and Lily come together in a moment of supreme ecstasy, succumbing to a primal passion that leaves Lily shaken but utterly alive. Is Sebastian her lifetime mate or is he her worst enemy?

Kate Douglas is continuing the story of the Chanku in her new series Spirit Wild. Dark Wolf is the first in that series and you can read this as a stand alone, background information is provided so that anyone not familiar with Ms. Douglas' series Wolf Tales will still be able to read and appreciate the book.

Dark Wolf not only has a great romance forming through out it also has a dark mystery of who is the serial killer behind the murder and rape of several women and why do they want it to look like the work of the Chanku. Ms. Douglas does a fantastic job of setting the stage for her new series while giving us the back ground we need to understand the shapeshifting race known as the Chanku and at the same time cooks up a steaming hot helping of erotic paranormal romance. All of this is a tall order to fill and Ms. Douglas does an admiral job.

The Chanku have very large libidos and are very open about not only nudity but also there views about sex and relationships. This book contains sex scenes including f/f, m/m, m/m/f as well as m/f. We have menage, voyeurism and wolf sex (Chanku in their wolf forms having sex). So if you like your shifter romance on the hot and steamy side I think you will enjoy Dark Wolf and the new series that will follow.
