I read a lot of weird things but this one was even too weird for me.

After Alexandria walks in on her fiance buck naked with another woman -- in their bed no less -- she decides to hop in her car and escape for awhile. As luck would have it, she ends up getting run off the road while caught in a blizzard. She begins to walk in the hopes of finding some shelter but gets all turned around and lost in the blinding snow. She succumbs to the cold and collapses in a heap giving up all hope of rescue. W

werewolf sex should really be a lot sexier. shouldn't it? i mean when i think of werewolf sex, it certainly is much more sexy, a lot less tortuous, eye-rolling.

it starts off sort of intriguingly, but honestly i lost interest fairly early on, with the semi-reveal in the limo. badly done. still, i had hope for at least a sorta trashy version of Beauty & the Beast (the tv show, that is) but then it all became about dueling alphas and guy-on-guy action and all this psychodrama about who is toppi

Holy gods and little demons. That was just a hot mess. And not the good hot that leaves me wishing I smoked and needing a cold shower.

While I wasn't squicked by the bestiality (because popular vote said that's exactly what it was), I can happily say it is not my thing. Even when it was plain old human sex, it wasn't sexy. Like, at all. I wasn't left moist and panting, I was left wondering how on earth there is more than one of these Wolf Tale books out there. Crap on a cracker. But I stuck with

I was recommended this book from a friend......apparently a really, really naughty friend, if you know what I mean *wink wink*

This book was all kinds of steamy....scratch that, it wasn’t just steamy it was flat out volcanic and it is quite a monumental achievement for me to say that it is probably the kinkiest thing I have ever read. It had m/f, m/m, m/f/m, m/m/f/f/, f/f....yep all in one book.

At the start I was sure I wouldn’t like it. The story starts out with Alexandria waking up after passi

It was hard to lose myself in the sex scenes even though they were hot because of the slant towards bestiality. I don't care how good the guy is in the sack, if he has a dog-like penis and a canine face (and I don't mean he's a dog as in ugly, he has a muzzle and canine teeth, and covered in fur), that just doesn't do it for me. I wasn't overly thrilled with the scene that included one male character in his wolf-form forcing another male character to submit sexually to him while the second male ...more

Kate Douglas' first installment of her Wolf Tales is a winner in my book. You can really feel the emotions linked to the intimacies, and it's heartbreaking to read about Keisha's emotional agony. On the flip side this story has some hot menage and foursome action that are very tasteful. There is some mind sharing during the sex that is off the chart hot.

I had to force myself to finish this book. It started out really good and then I began wondering what happened to the strong male characters. They were so touchy-feely, I wanted the women to smack them one and tell them to man-up. Once Stefan was able to change back and forth, well really before then, he just started to get woosey weird. I have 9 of these books, I hope they get better.
I couldn't get into the bestiality part! I love shifter romances but I want them to be human during the sex scenes. Animals having sex with humans is not my thing!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAAHHHAA! The term "ROTFLMFAO!" Just doesn't cut it. With books like this (read this with a southern accent drawn out like) "who in thee hellll" wants to read 50 Shades of Grey! Seriously!

This book was the most educational book "In the sleazy sense" that I have ever read in my entire life! *cough* And I mean that positively! I am still laughing! And the thought of any of my friends knowing that I read this book...well... it keeps running through my head... I am n

When Alexandria (Xandi) runs off the road she thinks she dreams of having sex while she is unconscious. Yet one man (Stephen) who is hiding from the world because of his magic/wizardry wolf being, has come to really know and love Xandi once they meet and spend the real time together.

Xandi and Stephen decide to go to his old wizard friend (Anton) who put this spell on Stephen to reverse the shapeshifing. Stephen had been dreaming of seeing Anton for the past years. These dreams are more than wha

If I ever need to prove that I'm not a prude, then I'll whip this book out. Starting as a solid 3 and steadily decreasing to the point when a 4th member is introduced, my suspended disbelief, my tolerance for the writing, characters, non-exisent plot, all built up and overflowed resulting in me exclaiming how much I hate this book.

The author put in zero effort to develop her characters. She can write a pretty hot sex scene but I dont really care if I feel zero connection to the characters.

I thought this book was about a love story between a werewolf and a human with some eroticism. I was wrong. This is pure porn! There are detailed sex scenes on every other page and it encompasses every act of sex possible: man on man, woman on woman, rape, threesomes, beastiality, foursomes and man and woman. Just wasn't what I was expecting. I can't finish reading it, because I am not interested in wolf on human action. I'm all about experimenting sexually, but I draw the line at animals. (and ...more

Please remind me to never read paranormal erotica again, even paranormal genre is my favorite. This book just one of some cases I must avoid to read, even I'm so INTRIGUED!!!! Hufff, pfffftttt!!! =(

I think after I read Nicholas (The Lords of Satyr, #1) by Elizabeth Amber , I will once again encountered some bad erotica. My guess is right. Even the idea for Chanku, the legend of wolves shifter is good, I just can't connect with this one. I find my self skip some page, just because I almost gagged and said :"WTF" over and over again. I don't mind

Ladies and gentlemen this book will blow your mind!!! Mentally and physically!! Talking lots and lots if cold showers!! Plus it's a good instructional manual for those who want to take it up a notch in the bedroom!!! Other than that it was sexually weird and amazing at the same time there is a story, it's not that bad once you get past all the "sex"!!

So I was able to borrow this via my library app, and even though it was something I would usually go for, I love me some hot steamy paranormal smut.. This was a bit strange even for me.
So you have Alexandria who is trying to basically get away from life after she walks in on her fiance cheating on her. She ends up stranded in a blizzard and just when I think she is going to succomb to hypothermia she is "saved" by Stefan who happens to be a shifter.

I honestly don't know where to start. First, maybe I should start thanking my dear Amanda for sending it my way with the warning that this book was really REALLY hot. Extreme hot. Well written and very respectfully hot (if you don't mind reading how a wolf has sex with a man). Ok, not that extreme, but I must say, that for those readers, WITHOUT AN OPEN MIND, do not even bother. Don't even try to open it or even understand it, because you will be offended (the scene with a wolf and the man is tr ...more

Sensual, hot, explicit, erotic romance among wolf shape-shifters. Some readers will be uncomfortable.

Xandi is driving in a snowstorm. A truck runs her off the road. She gets lost walking in the blizzard and passes out. She wakes to find herself with a strange man. She accompanies Stefan on a trip to find Anton, the magician who turned him into part wolf. Stefan learns how to shift between human and wolf form, as does Anton. They want Xandi to stay with them.

Wolf Tales is Kate Douglas' introductory book into the world of the "Chanku", a group of people who have the ability to shapeshift between human and wolf. In the beginning of this first book, Alexandria, better known as Xandi, drives off the road in a bad snowstorm. Near death from freezing, she falls unconscious in the snow. She awakens in a warm bed, wrapped in the arms of a naked man who makes love to her throughout the night. Come morning, she finds herself once again alone on the side of th ...more

This is the worst piece of trash I have ever read. I have read better smut on Literotica.

It was like Douglas tried to take something that was taboo (bestiality) and make it okay. She failed. HARD. Not only did she manage to write about bestiality, but rape, too. Within the first ten page of the book, the lead female wakes up in the dark to have sex with some naked wolfman stranger she can't even see and then goes on to make him let her live with him where they continue to have more sex for abou

Alexandria just wanted to take a small vacation from her normal day to day life. What Xandria got was more than she imagined.

After crashing into a snow bank Xandria was rescued by a large sexy man whom made the most amazing love to her in complete darkness at his home. But when she awoke in the morning she was back in the snow safe but alone. Could she have just dreamed it all? No she was sore all over, the good kind of sore; the soreness of a great night.

I didn't think much of this book, but toward the end I saw a mild improvement which prompted a slightly higher rating than I had initially thought. The first and foremost problem I had with this book, was the lack of story or plot, which is something I, as a reader, must have. What little story there was, ended up being mediocre, cheesy and under-developed. The almost translucent storyline also completely unfolded very early on in the book and it pretty much fit in one chapter all nice an

Terrible... just dreadful writing, awful characters and the most horrible, senseless plot ever!

God, this book destroyed part of my childhood, the whole thing reminded me of a porn version of the Beauty and the Beast.

There is something seriously wrong with this book, and I'm not even talking about the awful!, just... awful writing!, the author kept repeating things over and over again, the sex scenes either were the same (the breasts and the pop! every.single.time,

contains borderline beastality
yes that's right folks I said the b word for a wolfish book. OK so yes Stefan does transforms back and forth from man to beast during sex. but something just does sit right with the whole sex while still a beast thing.
let's hope the next book is a bit better and less icky.
otherwise this was a really good book. yes there is a lot of sex but other than that it's OK...but just OK. not reall

How can you describe this book half way through other than HOT HOT HOT. I would say that it's probably not for everyone . As it is VERY sexually explicit and involves mutli partners/bi partnering.

So far underlying story is very well done.

Update* All done.. Still HOT, might be to much for some and ok for others.. I can't say that I would recommend this book to anyone. To each their own.

Zero stars in reality but I was forced to enter something. This story was just bad...bad...bad! I can tolerate an erotic tale but this was a schizophrenic sex tale with rapes, hard core sex, beastiality, mmf, ff, mm, and mfm sex. Way, way too much going on. The story was nil and the dialogue was atrocious.
