Ana Cordona has been a strong leader for the lupine shifters who survived after all the males and most of the females in her pack were mysteriously poisoned. As tough as she is, with no Alpha male, the pack is vulnerable to the devious shifter Sean Taggart, who wants to claim both their ranch and Ana as his own. When Connor Armstrong comes back into her life, promising protection, it’s almost enough to make Ana forget how he walked out on her before—and reluctantly accept his offer to mate. The minute Connor sees Ana again, it reawakens a raw hunger. He must have her for his bondmate—his wolf cries out for it. But his human side knows he must proceed with caution because of their complicated past. If he is to truly have her body and soul, he must go beyond his burning desire and win back her heart. Whatever it takes, he is determined not to leave her side again. But Taggart and his rival pack are not their only enemies. A human element in town is targeting shifters. Their plan not only threatens Ana and Connor’s future, but the lives of the entire pack...


Ana Cordona has watched almost everyone she loves die in the last few months. Her back has been viciously attacked, poisoned by an unknown person. All of the men and pregnant females of her pack are now gone and the remaining members of her pack are vulnerable and more danger is headed her way.

Connor Armstrong is a wolf shifter of the warrior class. He has loved Ana since he met her over fifty years ago but he had to leave her then. Now he’s back to claim what is his and protect her from those that seek to harm her but first he must convince Ana to mate with him.

As Ana and Connor try to learn to live with each other evil is in their midst. Will they be able to survive and will they do it together?

OMG, Katie Reus’ Alpha Instinct will Rock Your World! Ms. Reus throws her readers into the action in a fast and furious fashion. Ana and Connor are two characters that have enough passion between them to burn the pages up. From the first moment when Connor emerges onto the pages Alpha Instinct comes alive! It’s impossible for the reader to stop flipping the pages. I was able to form an instant connection with these characters. I needed to devour this story because I could not wait to find out what happened with Ana, Connor and the Pack. Not only was I able to form a connection with the hero and heroine but the secondary characters as well. I am literally aching to get my hands on the next story!

One thing Ms. Reus does remarkably well is convey her characters intense emotions.
