BLURB from Goodreads
Werewolf Sean Holloway treats the village marketplace like a sexual buffet, though his charm does little to win over his latest entr e of choice. Whether because of Jem Stonehouse's unique scent, her headstrong nonchalance, or the fact he is forbidden to see her by his pack's rules, Sean wants her.When Jem is nothing but flippant toward his advances, he pursues her with vigour, stealing moments alone with her without a libido-driven agenda.The new and heady experience for him drives their relationship beyond romantic interest, and straight toward love.That is, until Jem learns the truth about Sean's heritage. Knowledge of the existence of werewolves leads to only one outcome: death.In this prequel to Darkness & Light, we are taken back in time, to the very beginning of Jem and Sean's love-across-the-centuries relationship.Did it end there? Or did Sean defy his own pack to save the woman he loves?

Instinct by J.A. Belfield is a novella "prequel" and is the beginning of the Holloway Pack Series.

I really loved this novella, its kind of the prequel or the history you need to know for the next books to make total sense.  It's well written to the point you cannot put it down. The descriptions make it possible for you to visualise the surrounding of the characters as well as what the characters look like too.
Its a lovely romance. I love how Sean finally meets his mate and lets say his match with Jem. Their love is forbidden as Sean is a wolf however Jem also comes from a supernatural family in that her mother is a witch.
This book features an old fashioned tale of courtship.
I think you could read this book after Darkness & Light but I am glad I read it first as I think things in Darkness & Light make sense more quickly having read Instinct first.
A beautiful tale.
I also really like the cover which when you have read the novella you know depicts Sean & Gem walking along the lane during Sean's old fashioned courtship of Jem.
I can't wait to read Darkness & Light now!
So did I enjoy it? YES  Would I recommend it? YES Would I read more of this series/by this author? YES/YES
