Even Shifters have problems of love, especially when the alpha male is stubborn and pig-headed like Ryan. In the next installment of the Moon Shifter Series, “Protective instinct”, Katie Reus gives her ever-protective hero the fear of his life, as she throws his mate Theresa into danger.


Theresa and Ryan may have accepted their feelings for each other, but the stubborn alpha holds back the ultimate mating due to his painful past. Frustration leads to arguments and barriers and a revengeful vampire has Ryan rethinking his idiotic behavior of keeping Theresa at an arm’s length. A threat to Theresa’s life brings out Ryan’s protective instincts and the separation and fear of losing is mate gets his head out his rear to claim her forever.

Intense, steamy, and passionate, “Protective Instinct” is a short novella in the series that leaves us with the satisfaction of reading another charismatic story of Katie Reus’s creative and mesmerizing paranormal. And I’ve never been disappointed with her writing prowess, and she is a master at keeping her narration enchanting and captivating.
