Spring into Romance Social Hop

While I adored most of Nalini Singh’s Psy-Changeling series, my absolute favorite was Kiss of Snow, which was a May/December romance. The connection between Hawke and Sienna was brewing through half of the series, and this was book ten. From beginning to end, it didn’t disappoint.

Since the moment of her defection from the PsyNet and into the SnowDancer wolf pack, Sienna Lauren has had one weakness. Hawke. Alpha and dangerous, he compels her to madness.

Hawke is used to walking alone, having lost the woman who would’ve been his mate long ago. But Sienna fascinates the primal heart of him, even as he tells himself she is far too young to handle the wild fury of the wolf.

Then Sienna changes the rules and suddenly, there is no more distance, only the most intimate of battles between two people who were never meant to meet. Yet as they strip away each other’s secrets in a storm of raw emotion, they must also ready themselves for a far more vicious fight…

A deadly enemy is out to destroy SnowDancer, striking at everything they hold dear, but it is Sienna’s darkest secret that may yet savage the pack that is her home…and the alpha who is its heartbeat…

While the interactions between Hawke and Sienna are the absolute gem of this book (SO MUCH BANTER), the moments when they finally get together are breathtaking, so I included what’s probably my favorite line of the entire series.

 

“You’re in my every breath and every thought, intertwined so deep inside me that love’s not a strong enough word—you have my devotion, your name branded on my soul, my wolf yours to command. A hundred years? It’ll never be enough. I want eternity.”

November 2015 Obsessions

Can we talk Nalini Singh for a second here? So, I stayed away for awhile–figured it wasn’t my cup of tea. After all, I tend to like more action to my books and I need to be in a certain mood to read some romances. But I’d heard about her for awhile and was curious so I checked the first book out.

Reaction? Not bad. Not amazing, but definitely a page turner for me. Then I read the second….got a little more interested. Now I wanted to read more. AAAANNNND then came the third book, which I refused to put down and devoured in a night. SO. DAMN. GOOD. I love when a book grips me like that and refuses to let go. Where am I now? Oh, yeah, currently through book seven. I’m tearing through this series like no tomorrow.

I’ll be honest, I *may* be finished the entire series before the end of the year. Not even sorry. I will say, it’s doing wonders for my paranormal romance inspiration, and since my current work-in-progress is said genre, I’m happy for the spark.
