Daniel Valente and Ryunosuke Kimura have been enjoying the tranquility of their English countryside home. However, the peace is about to be interrupted when they must resolve events of the past, as well as deal with helping to build a better Tribunal future.
Protective Instincts is the sixth book in the Instincts series. In this episode, Ryu is nominated to be a judge, but as in every government there are those who will oppose adding anyone to their privileged ranks. Ryu expects opposition from a past adversary. The surprise in the story is Ryu’s antagonist is not the only enemy.

I have read this series from the beginning book, Natural Instincts, and I suggest any fan of vampires do the same; you will not regret it. The vampire characters are charismatic and just a bit impertinent. The vampires also have amazing pets as protectors.

Ryu and Daniel are eternal partners, which is a vampire version of a monogamous marriage. Ryu and Daniel are completely different in personalities, but the yin and yang traits work well for the couple. Ryu lives by the samurai warrior’s code, loyalty, self discipline, respectful and honorable.

Daniel, on the other hand, does not have a humble bone in his body. Daniel is outrageously frank in his assessments of others, as well as a deceptively deadly warrior who has no qualms about intimidating anyone perceived to be an enemy. 

S.J. Frost has again created another incredible addition to this series. The characters are amusing, in addition to being compelling. The reader is agreeably drawn into the narrative and held until the conclusion.
