He is Savage. Dominant. Primitive. I am slave to his instinct.
In the year 10,442, humanity is a space faring race.
We do not have sex, and we certainly do not breed.
I am an observer, a young woman alone in space, being punished for her sins. My sentence is to observe a remote planet where it is rumored an old Earth ship crashed thousands of years ago. According to records, there were no survivors.
The records were wrong.
While in orbit around the planet, I am hit. My shuttle crashes.
Zion, the beast of a man who pulls me from the wreckage and sets about making me his own does not know that my people do not engage in sexual activity. He doesn’t understand that reproduction is expressly forbidden. All he knows is that he wants me.
My untouched body will be his in every way imaginable. He will mate me over and over. He will fill me with his seed until my belly swells. When I defy him, I will be punished shamefully and thoroughly until I give him the submission he demands.
But there are even more dangerous things in the universe than Zion. My people will come for me, and when they do, even my primitive beast of a man might not be enough to save me from their wrath.

As someone who loves sci-fi romance it’s not often I get surprised with something, but instinct is surprising not only in how addictive a read it is, but also with the unique world that Loki Renard built. Filled with characters that pull you in, a dramatically different futuristic world, and some seriously hot steam Instinct had me hooked from the get go.
I loved that both Tselia and Zion were so drastically different but also both so realistic they were still relatable. Coming from two different worlds, literally, they were complete opposites on every level from food to intimacy and their strong personalities clashed just as intensely as the sparks that existed between them flew. A raw, primal, instinctual pull between them growing into a love that transcends the rules of multiple worlds.
