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 wi

Even at 16 she was already more of an adult then many of her peers. She is 20 years old in this book, and more then mature enough to deal with Hawk. I think 20/37 isn't that big of a deal. Especially with these two. (less)
    Quita You can, but you'll feel like you missed out on some stuff when the other couples interact in the story.

    First off, let me say that I'm completely biased when it comes to Hawke, so don't expect this to be a sensible and impartial "review". ;)

    Photobucket

    Hawke alone deserves 5 stars, and I'll just be honest and say that I'd love this book even if the plot was utter crap - which it isn't, of course.

    I became obsessed feel in love with Hawke the moment I met him in Slave to Sensation, the first book in the series:

    A little background…I picked up Nalini Singh’s Psy-Changling series on a whim back in 2006 with Slave to Sensation…and when I was finished with that book, I was immediately drawn to Hawke’s story and my fervent hope that eventually A) it’d get written soon and B) his HEA was Sienna Lauren who was 16 at the time. Each subsequent book after that I read hoping for bits and pieces of Hawke’s st

    Favorite Quote: “You sure you want to play with the wolf, baby?”

    Favorite Quote #2: The crowd was chanting, “kiss, kiss, kiss” when Hawke walked inside.

    That was when Sienna learned the meaning of the term alpha.

    Favorite Quote #3: "Scared?" Hawke’s smile held no humor. "You should be baby." Then he kissed her and it was no tender exploration, no playful tease. This was the kiss of a man who knew precisely what he wanted.

    5+ stars – Paranormal Romance

    WOWZA! The most anticipated installment in the phenomenal Psy-Changeling series definitely delivers the goods and lives up to the hype. It’s an intense, passionate, and emotional epic romance with smoldering sensuality and thrilling action that is pure tribute to Hawke fanatics. It satisfied my super high expectations and then some. I was completely and utterly captivated by every word from beginning to end, and my only complaint is that I didn’t want it to be over.

    Kiss of Snow is book #10 in Nalini Singh’s stunning the Psy-Changeling Series. I have been waiting for a very long time for Hawke’s story, every since he was introduced in Slave to Sensation, the 1st book in the Series. Somehow I had always hoped that he would get together with Sienna Lauren…..and yes, after 9 books, I finally got my wish.

    One of the most anticipated books this year is Kiss of Snow (book #10) by Nalini Singh. Nalini has come a long way with her Psy-Changeling series. I can still remember the first time I picked up Slave to Sensation back in 2006, knowing I found an author I’d stick with for life. Nalini is an incredibly talented author, and if you’re not reading her books, you’re missing out on something special.

    I read Kiss of Snow a few months ago and was on the fence whether or not I should review it. The reason

    Unpopular opinion alert: after waiting forever for Hawke's book, this disappointed me.


    actually, I never said I was sorry. Don't put words in my mouth, you lunatic!

    Anyway, why didn't I like it?
    First, there was a secondary love story going on between two of the possibly most boring beings on the planet. Their story was like watching paint dry. And, not the fun kind of watching paint dry. Plain white wall paint.

    Secondly, it had a creepy feel to it, in a pedo-bear way.

    I want to read more books about Hawke and Sienna. I feel like their story could go on and on and never get old or boring. It makes me wish they had their own series like Elena and Raphael do in the Guild Hunter series :P

    Ah, Hawke and Sienna’s book… It has been the most anticipated release of the series for me. All that tension between them and the curiosity of how they would end up together (with him already having had a mate) has made for a very long wait. While this book didn’t exactly rock my world the way I thought it would, it is still definitely worth the wait.

    I really enjoyed Sienna in this book. She got tired of the games and she took a stand. She didn’t make unreasonable demands of Hawke, but she let h

    You have the power to tear me to pieces. To wound me so deep and true that I'll never recover.

    Hawke




    Except I never had a prayer when it came to you. 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.

    I mean, this was a good romance book guys. I'd been waiting for the Hawke/Sienna pair-up for a while, and I just really enjoyed the dynamic between them, Hawke always reminded me of Robert Redford a bit in my mind so you know...good stuff.

    The sub-plot between Walker and whatserface was OK (yeah I forgot her name so clearly had an impact haha), but the world plot with the Psy attacks and Ghost, that stuff stays interesting. That's why I like these books. They're TOTAL lady porn romance books, but

    Kiss of Snow is absolutely a tribute for the fans. Since Slave to Sensation I've been drooling over the luscious, uber-masculine, sigh worthy alpha of the Snowdancer wolf pack. You thought Lucas was yummy? You have no idea.

    Sienna is now 19, a full adult but wise beyond her years, mature beyond anyone in her peer group because of what she's lived through. Because of what she is: a Psy. Hawke, alpha leader of the Changeling pack who took in the Lauren

    Sienna Lauren tumbled head over heels in love with Hawke, the SnowDancers alpha, at first sight. (Who didn’t?) But she had two huge obstacles in front of her, one more (seemingly) insurmountable than the next.
    One: He made her lose her cool, shattered her control. And she needed that steely control to suppress her deadly, martial psychic ability.
    Two: She competed against a ghost. The ghost of a young girl who died long ago, but would’ve become Hawke’s mate if she lived. A bond he knew would never

    This one is probably my favorite book in the series so far! I LOVE Hawke and Sienna, they are both so frustratingly stubborn and strong-headed. Then we also have Walker and Lara. I've read this book about 5 times and each and every one of them I was captivated.

    Hawke



    Sienna




    Hawke and Sienna are an explosive combination. Hawke is the Alpha of the SnowDancer pack since he was only 15. Closer to his wolf than any other changeling he is almost civilised, almost human, almost hot. Ok, completely HOT!

    Loved the book, BTW, for all of you waiting for me to finally get back to this series. I would be hard-pressed to say that #1 in the series is still my fav, after this one. These two sizzled on the page - or should I say in my ears?

    I was surprised the war started, as I was thinking this would be avoided or postponed, as in other series.

    Much like a decadent dessert, Kiss of Snow is the type of book that you want to devour slowly because you don’t know when the next time will be that you get to indulge in something so delicious and satisfying.

    I adored Sienna, her love for Toby, her family, her guilt over the past, her feelings about her mother, Ming and above all her feelings for Hawke. She was tenacious and single-minded and led Hawke a merry dance, poor him he didn't stand a chance against her and her friends. Can I also say I love Kit!!
