I will read this again just so I can drool over the hero... 
~Amazon Reviewer

K9's, sexy former SEAL and a rescue

Fantastic story! This story brings adrenaline rushes together with an emotionally intense situation. Dani, Trip and Valor are amazing and fit perfectly together.

Gripping story.~ P. Blevins, Top 1000 Reviewer

Fantastic read.. all the emotions

I could not put this book down once I started it.. no really.. I cooked breakfast while reading (turns out the dog won't eat a raw egg that is dropped on the floor), fed the dog, and did two loads of laundry.. all while still reading hahaha.

An outstanding, page turner!

~ Amazon Reviewer


My recommendation before starting to read this outstanding novel is to clear your schedule for the day...and, start early in the morning. Once you start reading it, I don't believe you will be able to put it down...except for a few quick breaks. It is that intense and filled with so many moving parts.

An entire gamut of human emotions fill these pages...from loss, to life and love. And, happiness and grief are also featured. Amazing compilation of events make this an excellent read...

Truly an excellent read from the beginning to the end. This novel is worthy of more than 5 stars, I believe. The author has managed to combine life's events with natural occurrences in a masterful manner.

Most highly recommended and looking forward to the next one.

Quinn never fails to deliver a gripping story!

I have not often been this invested in the romance aspect of a book. The conflicts and struggles encountered here, however, lend a feeling of "will they make it" which is something Quinn does masterfully...

Quinn writes a gripping story. Well plotted, it's easy to see the research that has gone into the work. Survival Instinct is no holds barred, I simply couldn't stop reading it. 
I felt a bit bereft when it was over. I wasn't quite ready to let go.
Roxx Tarantini VINE Voice


A handsome hunk of a Search and Rescue Specialist, his brilliant service dog, Valor, and a beautiful woman stranded in a killer storm. The perfect ingredients for a tense survival story and budding, often passionate romance.

But in Fiona Quinn's "Survival Instinct" these become only the backdrop for a much more compelling psychological drama in which former SEAL Trip Williams and service veterinarian Dani Addams battle their own demons as they fight to outlast a blizzard in the Virginia mountains.

Dani is struggling to recover from the loss of a dear friend in an accident that also took the life of her own dearly-loved service dog Daisey, while Trip is finding his way back from an illness that led to early separation from his life-long dream of being a Navy SEAL and from a K-9 companion who had become as much a part of him as his own arms and legs.

As the pair find safety and growing attraction in a remote mountain cabin, they learn that their most challenging rescue still lies somewhere outside in the hurricane-force storm that batters their shelter. It will test the best of their skills and the talents of the dog who has now become a part of the bond between them.

Quinn's "Survival Instinct" is a 5-Star page-turner and a love story that touches the deeper connections that bind two lovers and the K-9 companions who have helped rescue their lives.

Allen Kent, USA Today and Amazon Bestselling Author.
Intense adventure and romance...I couldn't stop reading this beautiful, exciting book.
~ J.A. Schneider, USA TODAY Bestselling Author


This is one of those books that will stay with me for a long time.

It was emotionally charged story from the very beginning. The reader empathizes with the main characters right from the start. We are pulled in to their turmoil and hope for a good outcome for them. The author really put her characters through the wringer in this story.

If you love good, romantic suspense you need to pick up a copy of this book, it is spectacular.

~Goodreads Reviewer


The story was amazing in that it hit so many of my emotions, loss, grief, love, anger, happiness but it didn't feel like a roller coaster, each paged flowed seamlessly to bring this story together for me with and ending that left me with a smile for days.
