PRIMAL POSSESSION (Moon Shifter #2) by Katie Reus
PRIMAL POSSESSION is the second full-length novel in Katie Reus’s Moon Shifter series. When a group calling themself the Antiparanormal League begin targeting shifters as well as humans they associate with, no one is safe. With the revelation of shifter existence, the attacks against the Packs have increased to where entire populations are at risk.
28 years old former teacher and now bookstore owner December McIntyre was targeted by the Antiparanormal League for her association with Lupine shifter and second-in-command of the Armstrong-Cordona pack Liam Armstrong. Although no personal fault of Liam’s, knowing she was his mate, made it that much more unbearable to know that December was refusing his offer of protection along with his heart.
As an enforcer for the North American Council of Lupine shifters Jayce Kazan has business with the Armstrong-Cordona Pack alpha Connor Armstrong but knowing the woman who was supposed to be his mate was nearby dissolved all good sense. Kat Saburova was December’s best friend, estranged daughter of Dimiitri Saburova (crime lord) and his mate. But when she walked out on him months before, she took his heart with her when he refused to bond. Finding out that Kat had been targeted by the APL only reinforced Jayce’s guilt about his association with and the danger it placed on Kat. But another group of supernaturals had been targeted and Liam and Jayce would fall prey to an attack.
Parker McIntyre was Fontana’s Sheriff and December’s brother, but Parker was all about his sister’s safety. But Parker’s dislike for the shifters became apparent when he threatened to cut December out of his life if she mated with Liam Armstrong. But the guilt of knowing the real reason as to why Parker was so angry, weighed heavily upon both of their minds.
The APL was on the move. Following a couple of attacks against Liam, December would find herself bound and gagged in her own house. Rescued, December would temporarily move into the shifter ranch, but once there, her hormones take over with a surprising jolt. And Parker’s reaction to her sudden move would place a strain on the siblings. But a shooting would put everything into perspective when Kat is abducted. And Liam knew, that to save December, he would have to turn away from his mate.
PRIMAL POSSESSION is another exciting storyline in Katie Reus’s Moon Shifter series. A look at pack life and its’ tenuous relationship with humans, the Armstrong- Cordona pack will find themselves another ally in the supernatural world, and a new threat from a fabled race. Katie’s storyline blends naturally with the character development, and there is rarely a moment to breathe between scenes.

Thanks so much to Sandy for letting me hang out here today!
Reading is what I do during my downtime and I love listening to music while reading, cooking, or whatever. It has the power to change my mood, which is often a good thing. I know a lot of writers who can listen to music and write at the same time, but I’m not that talented. I get way too distracted! However, in the mornings I usually go walking and I always bring my iPod along. Half the time I’ll listen to an audible book but the other half, I like to relax and listen to music. On my current playlist you’ll find artists such as Foster the People, Rihanna, Katy Perry, Fitz and the Tantrums, Macy Gray, Breaking Benjamin, Johnny Cash, Pink…and I could go on forever. I like to have a mix of everything, but when walking I usually keep it upbeat until that final stretch where I’m warming down.
Music, just like reading and books, is so subjective—which is a wonderful thing. What one person might consider the hottest song ever might be like fingernails on a chalkboard to someone else. I have a few songs that are guaranteed to put me in a happier mood if I need it, and pretty much anything by Pink gets me excited about working out. And I usually need that extra motivation!
What about you? What song when you hear it makes you want to dance? Or puts you in a better mood? Or, who is one of your favorite musical artists? One reader who comments on the blog today will be randomly selected to win a print copy of Primal Possession (US eligible only). Good luck and thanks so much for stopping by!
About Primal Possession To protect her, he will unleash the beast within…
As his pack’s second-in-command, lupine shifter Liam Armstrong gives orders and takes what he wants—until he meets red-headed, blue-eyed December McIntyre. Liam knows the human beauty is his intended mate the moment he sees her, but December is far too strong-willed to accept his protection.
December, whose brother is the town sheriff, has every reason to mistrust shifters after one killed her youngest sibling. But the forceful and handsome Liam has gotten under her skin in a way she hadn’t thought possible, and the desire she feels for him is almost too much to bear.
When a radical hate group targets all humans known to sympathize with paranormal beings, December is attacked in her bookstore. Reluctantly, she turns to the only one who can help her: Liam. And he is going to take her to places within herself she never knew existed.
