Publisher's Summary

It happens whenever wolf shifter Roni Axton is near Marcus Fuller: a crackle of sexual awareness that's intoxicating...and deeply annoying. Marcus is a pack enforcer who oozes power, but Roni is lethal in her own right - nothing like the flirty females who flock around him. Even still, his possessive gaze makes one thing clear. Marcus has singled her out for seduction, and he wants to make her sit up and beg.

No matter how aloof and unfazed Roni acts, Marcus can tell she wants him. When a brutal attack by a jackal pack forces them to work together, it's the perfect opportunity for Marcus to chip away at her defenses - until he falls into his own trap, completely unprepared for the intensity of their connection. Roni is the only one who's ever seen past his shifter charm and discovered the man hiding beneath it. And for Marcus, claiming Roni once will mean needing her forever.

The Best One in The Series!

So far, this is my favorite story in the series.

I like these stories because there is a plot and action but they have a lot of steamy romance. However, the other books in the series seemed to have more bad language during these scenes and the male characters had to be dominate. In this story, it was more balanced which has made this my favorite book in the series.

Loved it! Now I just have to wait for the next book!

Steamy.

Another hot book by Suzanne Wright. The pages were steaming with this book. So if you are a fan of the series pick it up. I still love the first book best, with the third my least favorite. I wish there was a little more action, but for a romance it is great. I love the characters in this book and can't wait for the next couple to have their book, I'm hoping it's Ryan's book. Since it has been awhile since I read the other books and I did need a bit to remember all the characters, but the one I forgot most was Roni (Nick's Sister from book 3) although it came back quickly. I got this book/audio for $5.98 total using the Whispersync feature. Narrator does an awesome job.

Tough SHE-wolf with a delicate side rarely exposed

Love this book! I enjoy reading about strong women who can still be female. Often times books are written to make one think women don't need men. This books was written to show women came be dominant without being domineering.

Strength in women can happen without turning into a bitch (no pun intended) and without earning strength through hard living. This author understands different types of women and shows an inner strength that does not stifle the male role but enhances it... I love that!

Wonderful addition to the series

Within this book you were able to catch up on the lives of both members of the Pheonix and Mercury packs; but it would just whet your appetite to read the series from the beginning if you read this book as a stand alone
A new threat to the packs that must be delt with and awesome to see the ladies have their turn at interrogation and the that battle that followed
Ronnie was a wonderful leading lady and the author did a fantastic job of exploring her psychi would have liked to have seen more on Marcus. A strong alpha, but he hides his dominance
A very good book.

The wolf pack versus the jackels....

Two packs, lots of characters, hard to keep up. This listen was ok for me, the storyline was a bit different but the mating continues, this time it is Marcus and Rony. Jill Redfield does an amazing job trying to keep all the characters recognizable but it is becoming difficult to keep up with everyone. Sale buy only!

What did I say?

What a delight. I love this author. Her books are always refreshing. This was a great continuation of the Phoenix pack characters.

Marcus, the enforcer and his true mate, Roni, also an enforcer, makes for another great story in this series. Lots of banter back and forth, pasts being dealt with, and love being shared. And let's not forget the humor. She always writes sassy females with great come back lines. Love the story and the narrator.

ANOTHER HOW-HOW-HOWLING SUCCESS

If it's a Shifter romance that you're looking for then you've come to the right place because Suzanne Wright has delivered yet another winning combination of romance, drama, suspense and sex. Roni is an Enforcer she's fiercely independent, kick-ass and doesn't make friends easily but when she does she's a kind, loyal and loving friend. She has a wicked sense of humor and is always playing very humorous tricks on her poor Brothers but they ask for it by playing tricks on her too. As a teen she was nearly raped and, even now, everyone tries to protect her which is the last thing she wants or needs. Marcus is all looks, charisma and charm who loves the ladies but when you look beneath his polished exterior he's a complex man haunted by a history that he has no intention of repeating.

Every time Roni sees Marcus her pulse pounds and she is aware of their sexual connection and attraction. Which is good because Marcus intends to seduce her into his bed because he, and his wolf, are drawn to the prickly unsociable woman and he's quite confident and happy that Roni can't be his mate because a Seer has described his mate and what sort of life they will have which Marcus doesn't ever want. Even though neither of them are looking for their mates they eventually can't help but add all the signs up and they all point to the same conclusion.... mates.

But the secondary drama and angst is provided by a pack of Jackals who are kidnapping Shifters to taunt, abuse, torture and kill - all whilst happily filming the bloody acts. Slowly the Mercury and Phoenix Packs have to piece together clues in the hope that they will finally be able to find the elusive Shifters who are responsible for so many untimely and bloody deaths. And when they eventually track them, and the cold sadistic ringleader, the fangs, claws and fur goes flying.

This was lol funny with humorous quips and one liners but it is also a passion-filled and very hot account of how two unsuspecting Shifters found everything they needed when they least expected it. And, through many trial and tribulations, they found the inner peace that had eluded them. Dual POV's, a fun, sexy and very addictive storyline that was brilliantly narrated because there are a lot of interesting characters and each person had a distinctive voice and this is a narrator who can do sexy male voices that are just yummy.

Worth a credit? I would've gladly used a credit on this listen but I didn't have to as it was only $7.34 for over 11 hours of raw animal magnetism.... Pack style.

Another Good Book about the Phoenix Pack

Where does Dark Instincts rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

In the Phoenix series I would say it is one of the better ones - as for series as a whole I think book one is the best.

Any additional comments?

We first met Roni Axton in book three. Book four goes into detail following how Roni builds a permanent relationship with a member of the Phoenix pack. This book contains a fair amount of graphic sex. If I were to make a negative comment it would be an error made by Suzanne Wright. She changed the personality of Kathy who was a love person in book three and appears to be a harridan in this book. I am not sure I will buy the next one in the series as I feel they are becoming formulaic.

PHOENIX PACK

Would you consider the audio edition of Dark Instincts to be better than the print version?

I HAVE ONLY AUDIO SO CANNOT COMMENT

Have you listened to any of Jill Redfield’s other performances? How does this one compare?

JILL BRINGS THE CHARACTERS TO LIFE YOU WOULD NOT GET THAT FROM A BOOK

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I AM LUCKY I LISTEN TO MOST OF MY BOOKS SHOPPING WORKING WAITING AT THE HOSPITAL ETC. .SO I TEND TO SPREAD THE STORY OVER A WEEK

Any additional comments?

I HAVE THE WHOLE SERIES AND AM LOOKING FORWARD TO THE NEXT BOOKS

the narrator is excellent (does not tell the story in a monotonous way, that makes you want to either fall asleep or switch off). looking forward to the next one 👌👍

****Dark and Decadent****

An explosive story of a playboy and a tomboy, it's fast paced, an absolute thrill ride from beginning to end. Suzanne your characters are fictional but you tackles realistic issues, from sexual assault to trauma and i applaud you for that. Jill thank you for another amazing narrative. xox
