Instinctive

An Eternal Pleasure Novel

Cathryn Fox serves up polished prose and a yummy paranormal treat designed to tempt your senses with her latest tale Instinctive. As the sole heir to her father's multimillion dollar empire, Vasenty Cosmetics, Jaclyn Vasenty must give up her intense sexual appetites to focus on the overall increase of revenue at the store. But in order to do that, she needs to move temporarily to the rural town of Serene, NH; thus she indulges in one last fling of erotic ecstasy at Club Risque in Chicago's Gold Coast.
 
As she plans the trip, Jaclyn has no idea that her visit is expected, as five unusual overseers pass around her picture and file, already deciding her fate. Outsiders don't fit into this secret society, and for the next 30 days the residents will make her stay as unpleasant as possible, hoping to force her out, or else...As the head of security for the Eastern Chapter and owner of the local club Vibes, Slyck is tasked to keep an eye on Jaclyn, but he's already hopelessly in lust. So when he actually meets her in front of the local candy store, he knows he's in trouble because something about her is turning him on; despite Jaclyn's swearing off any sexual antics while focusing on her family's business, she's unable to resist this gorgeous man's animal magnetism and panther-like grace. Fraternization is strictly forbidden, and to make matters worse, simmering tensions between the neighbors make a union between these lovers extremely dangerous. But what in the world will Jaclyn do when she finds out the man of her dreams is something more than she expects? How will she handle the truth of who she really is?
 
Have you ever made a wrong turn and ended up stranded in a small town, knowing immediately that you're in a place you just didn't belong? Fox displays keen imagination and "what if" by developing an alternate society of natural enemies including vampires, lycans, witches, demons and panthers who live secretly and peacefully in other towns. In fact, her portrayal of an understated rural town is as authentic and smooth as a hot cup of decadent chocolate latte with lots of cream. In addition, she introduces characters who are deeply emotional, encouraging the reader to get to know them intimately despite their differences. Keep your eye on the details, because some the secondary players may show up again in subsequent books. For those who like their romance a little spicy, you'll get all that and more as the chemistry between the two leads is explosive. As this romance unfolds, readers learn all about Jaclyn and why she experiences such uncontrollable sexual urges that are nearly impossible to reign in, never feeling true satisfaction until meeting the very delicious and sexy Slyck. Despite her feelings, Jaclyn can't let her family down, needing to finish her task, and Slyck is a compelling hero destined to do what is right. It won't be easy, but can they both find the courage to withstand the possible perils of Serena to live out their dreams of a future? Instinctive provides a satisfying climax that readers are sure to enjoy as they wait for the next book.

Book Blurb for Instinctive

In Fox's titillating new series we enter Serene, a supernatural playground where sexy shape shifters live behind the white picket fences...

Free spirited Jaclyn Vasenty is about to inherit a cosmetics empire, yet her scandalous personal history may ruin her chance for a corporate take-over. Saying goodbye to her naughty ways, she moves into a quaint gated community in Serene, New Hampshire. But these gates are locked at sunset...

The town's dark sensuality rocks Jaclyn's insatiable appetite to the core—and stirs desires that are... inhuman. That's because Serene is home to demons, witches, vampires, lycans, and panthers, for whom primal exploration comes naturally. Especially for shape shifter Slyck, the cunning panther who's pushing Jaclyn to the brink of erotic possibilities and making her feel wildly...feral. As tension between species rises, Jaclyn learns she must draw on all her feminine wiles and join forces with Slyck if she wants to make it out alive.
