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.

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 Terror is the fifth book in the series.


“Douglas introduces her Spirit Wild series with a new generation of sexy Chanku wolves . . . Supported by a cast from the Wolf Tale books and fresh faces as well, this novel thrives on action and strong sexual encounters.” —Donna M. Brown for RT Book Reviews, on Dark Wolf


Before she was rescued from a human trafficking ring by the Chanku, Mary Ryder had lived a tortured life as a sex slave and prostitute, and the emotional scars of that time still haunt her. Through the patient strength and genuine devotion of Jack Temple, Mary is slowly learning to open herself to the possibility of uncorrupted love and passion in his arms. But before the two can explore their newfound connection and dream of life as a mated pair, they must face a dark menace threatening all Chanku.


Aldo Xanakis was thought to be dead, but harnessing the life force of those he had slain, he has reappeared as a dark and vicious demon hell-bent on the destruction of the pack—and of all humankind. With only days to stop the demon’s lethal plans and the fanatical religious cult he has enlisted to serve him, the entire Chanku pack unites to combine their power against him.


As Mary and Jack are thrown together in an epic battle against evil, they and the rest of the pack will be forced to harness all the magic and sensual power they possess to preserve their way of life and everything they hold dear.


When Adrienne leaves her boyfriend and races home in her old Honda in the dead of night, she is blinded by the snow falling. Her car smashes into something on the highway. That fateful encounter propels her into a world she is not familiar with—the world of Werewolves. She soon discovers a dying wolf. Adrienne nurses the white wolf back to life, and to her surprise he is a Werewolf, and he declares that she will be his mate. But after learning what the Werewolf expects from her, she runs away.

Wilder, a lone Werewolf desires Adrienne as his mate, and he will do whatever he can to keep her from leaving him, because she is essential for the future of his pack. The only way to increase his family of were- wolves is for her to mate with his brothers.

Adrienne begins to accept the idea that she could live with Wilder and his brothers but there is only one problem, one of the brothers—Lycell, is arrogant, exciting, handsome, narcissistic, rugged, sensuous, but they loathe each other.

The final thrilling installment in the groundbreaking Wolf Tales series that captivated the world of erotic romance!

Even as their numbers have grown and they’ve spread out across the country, the Chanku have remained deeply connected by their mutual need for erotic pleasure and their unique shapeshifting abilities. Content to pursue their sensual way of life in relative anonymity, they’re stunned when their extraordinary nature is unavoidably revealed to the world at large—and fearful of the dangers they face from those who fear their differentness.

Realizing that the distance between them makes them vulnerable, they answer the silent call for all Chanku to come together at their pack alpha’s home in Montana. And in that setting, as they struggle to understand their new place in the world and defend themselves against suspicious and violent adversaries, they will discover a shocking revelation about their origins and their legacy.

As the pack adapts to these new realities and reclaims their primal past, they will embark on a journey that will take them into uncharted territory and open up a spectacular, unimagined future . . .


Praise for the Wolf Tales 12:

“This is an orgasmic journey with mystery, heat, love, and most of all family. . . . With this last book we are given an explosion of talented writing that brings it all together.” —Affaire de Coeur Magazine

“The final chapter of Douglas’s series featuring a shapeshifting race is sexy, tense, and complex.” —RT Book Reviews

“Whoever said ‘save the best for last’ must have been speaking of Kate Douglas’s Wolf Tales 12!” —Coffee Time Romance & More

“For the best in paranormal romance, be sure to add the name Kate Douglas to your must-buy list!” —Midwest Book Reviews

If you like your cowboys sexy, your heroines forgetful and your marriages convenient, this gentle parody of cowboy romances will leave you with a smile on your face and a sigh on your lips. Discover romantic comedy at its best in this captivating tale of a woman who finds her one true love and the cowboy hero afraid to give his heart.

Michelle Garrison is a prolific romance writer whose career is suddenly on a downslide. Her plots are boring, her writing is stale and her readers are fleeing for greener pastures. Desperate to revive her career, Michelle sets out to write a bestseller, and who could make a more worthy hero than a cowboy.

Force-marched to a dude ranch by her editor, Michelle soon finds herself trudging along a mountain road with no memory of who she is or where she's going, but thanks to the quintessential sexy cowboy hero, Michelle is saved. Swept up in her cowboy's arms, even Michelle can see the parody in her own story: "Everything she'd read about cowboys must be true, she thought, almost hysterically. No wonder they made such popular heroes in romances."

This is a revised author’s cut reissue—Cowboy in My Pocket was originally published by Hard Shell Word Factory in 2001

"Kate Douglas bills her romance as a 'gentle parody of contemporary category romance' but in doing so creates a delightful love story that proves there's a good reason why certain plot devices become cliches—they really work on an emotional level . . . the author might have thought she was poking fun, but the romance reader has the last laugh with this sparkling romantic comedy!" —Gerry Benninger for Romantic Times Magazine
