From the Back Cover

Fear has a scent. So does desire...


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 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...

I enjoyed this book tremendously, a great start to a new series.
Ana Cordona is now the leader of a pack of women shifters after poison killed many in their group, including her parents. She is trying to keep things together while trouble is coming at her from many directions. As she is defending herself against a neighbor (Sean Taggart) who is particularly bothersome, a man (along with his pack mates) from her past comes to help.
Conner Armstrong lived on the ranch with the Cordona family many years ago and Ana thought that they would be mates in time, until the day he walked away without a word. He had his reasons for leaving and although he does not want to tell Ana, he still has strong feelings for her. He has heard about her troubles and is back to become the Alpha of the pack to help, the only condition he has is that she becomes his mate. Conner would prefer that Ana become his bond-mate but will take it slow until he can again gain her trust.
Several years ago, Shifters and Vampires came out to the world and though they are living in the open there are still many prejudices, many choose to live quiet lives within their own groups. As Ana and Conner sort out their personal issues they must deal with the fact that people in their neighboring small town are getting hurt with the blame falling on shifters. The violence escalates and shifters on their own land start to get hurt, Ana and Conner realize they may need to contact the council to help with the continuing problems.
The story is a gripping journey with many twists and turns as forces from several sides bring about an eventful conclusion. I enjoyed Ana and Conner's chemistry very much their as the feelings they have for each other pickup from years ago. I also liked the secondary characters and will look forward to seeing them again in future books.

Alpha Instinct is the first book in Katie Reus' MOON SHIFTER series and a great beginning to a new series.

Ana Cordova is the Alpha of the now all female Cordova pack since the pack members were poisoned and all the males in the pack dies, along with all the pregnant females shifters. Her father and intended mate were also amongst the victims of the poisoning. Now Anna is trying to protect the rest of her pack and make sure her sisters and cousins are safe, which is becoming harder and harder by the day. Sean Taggart, the pack Alpha living on the land next to Anna's wants to take over Anna's pack and claim Anna as his mate. Only problem is he's a drug dealing lunatic and willing to do anything to claim Anna. Right when he's about to attack Anna, Connor and Liam Armstrong swoop in to save her. And boy is Anna shocked to see him. He left her 50 years ago without a word and broke her heart.

Connor Armstrong has known Anna was his mate ever since he laid eyes on her the first time. He's suffered the last 50 years without her and now that he found out that all the males in Anna's pack dies and she's unprotected, he will do anything to protect her. Even offer her protection and the safety of him as the new Alpha of her pack. If, she agree to be his mate. He knows he's going to have to work at regaining Anna's trust but he's willing to do whatever he has to to make her love him again. But the problems are much more than Connor knew. Someone is still trying to take out Anna and her pack and won't stop until every last member of the Cordova pack is dead.

I really enjoyed this book. Anna is a strong female heroine that will do anything to protect her family. She's loved Connor for years and was brokenhearted when he left her.

After all the men and pregnant woman of her pack dies Ana stepped up as the Alpha Female. The only problem with that is that in her world the men have all the power and woman are not given the support to lead their own pack. A neighboring Alpha is set on having Ana and her pack for himself and will stop at nothing to have it. All this leads Ana to accepts the protection and help of her childhood love Connor even though she vows not to let him back in her heart because she doesn't want to get hurt again.

I enjoyed watching Ana and Connor shift around their feelings for each other. From the start you could feel their bond and protectiveness as well as their attraction for each other. Connor stated off way to pushy which lead Ana to believe he wasn't really wanting her but the pack she had behind her and because of Ana's reaction to him Connor pushed that much more to get her to want him as a mate. The sexual tension was there from the start and it was quite a frustrating ride until they finally gave into each other. There was a great amount of conflict, action and emotion behind ALPHA INSTINCT. I had many guesses at who was responsible for poisoning the pack but I didn't see the real killer until they were about to be revealed. There were a few slow parts but Katie did a good job of keeping me interested in the story. I enjoyed getting to know all the secondary characters. I was kinda sad to see that future books would be following different characters as they find their mates but Ana and Connor were a great start to the series.

Liam, Connor's brother starts his journey with his mate in the background of ALPHA INSTINCT I liked getting to know him and his match a little before their book starts next. I really enjoyed the first installment of Katie Reus' Moon Shifter series and am most defiantly planning on continuing with Liam's mating journey in book 2.
