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 for help to the pack she left behind. 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.

The fourth book in the Spirit Wild is a riveting romance that captures the heart. Emeline ChevalÃ??Ã?Â¢??s life is thrown into chaos when she discovers a fellow Chanku trapped in a human trafficking and prostitution ring and she must turn to the very pack she left behind. Gabe Cheval fears heÃ??Ã?Â¢??ll never find a mate of his own until heÃ??Ã?Â¢??s sent to help Emy with a situation and finds that girl he once knew is a grown beautiful young woman. As they explore their attraction, a dark menace lurks deep inside EmyÃ??Ã?Â¢??s heart and threatens to tear them apart. This steady to fast paced and smooth flowing plot keeps readers shivering in anticipation with suspense, drama, action, and romance. The author brings the story to life with well written scenes and details that inspire vivid images and capture the imagination, making it easy for the reader to feel as if they are part of this special world of shifters. Tension builds throughout the story in several different conflicts that keep the readerÃ??Ã?Â¢??s on their toes and draws the reader deeper into the story and the strong compelling characters are easily related to and grab the readerÃ??Ã?Â¢??s attention from the very beginning. The attraction between Gabe and Emy explodes from the pages and the frequent sex scenes including m/m scenes and multiple partners are hot enough to set the reader on fire, but the mating bond between the two is not an easy one with the darkness hiding inside EmyÃ??Ã?Â¢??s heart making things difficult. The reader canÃ??Ã?Â¢??t help but get caught up in all the characters stories and empathizing with several of them as most of the women has some emotional trauma to deal with. This book keeps the readerÃ??Ã?Â¢??s guessing with several twists and the multiple conflicts adds lots of spice and depth to the story. I was completely captivated by the book and the characters from the very beginning and I canÃ??Ã?Â¢??t wait to read the next one.show moreby Eva Millien
