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

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". ;)


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:

Hawke was muscular and he was lethal. A predator to the core. His eyes were the same icy blue whether

(yes, freaking 9 Photobucket, freaking (although fantastic) books) I have to say - IT DIDN'T DISSAPOINT!

Kiss of Snow is one of the best books I've read Photobucket (not just this year :P ) it deserves atleast a 100 of these guys Photobucket

Oh, how I LOVED every single minute spent reading this story. It was everything, EVERYTHING I knew it would be, and MORE.

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.

I have been waiting to read this book since the beginning of the series. I had to read 9 books before finally being able to get my hands on this baby and I do not regret it. At all.


Kiss of Snow was everything I wanted it to be. Everything. Hawke and Sienna were perfect for each other and their story was beautiful. Oh my god, did I swoon. Seriously, Hawke is so deliciously hot and so freaking dominant, I want one for myself. Sienna is one lucky lady! She's not too bad herself, I absol
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
I read this book Friday. Now it's Monday and I'm still an incoherent schmuck. I have been wrecked, y'all.
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

For all who worried about Sienna's character in this one, let me assure you, she rocks. She is strong, stubborn, feisty, wise, intelligent, fiercely loyal and she loves with
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

So NOT ready to write a review right now. **SIGH

I'll probably need a re-read, lol.
Can someone please scrape me up off the floor?

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

If I could, I would give it more then 5*. It was spectacular! One of the best books I have ever read(judging by the amount of crying I did :D).
Hawke and Siena are great characters and I loved their love story. (view spoiler)

So Nalini Singh fans unite, huh? I love it!
I recently received my ARC copy of Kiss of Snow. To say I was excited would be like saying “the guys in Nalini’s books are nice”. Blegh! Let it not be said that I was an understater and a vocab hater. Back on track; I ecstatically received the book and went on to find pockets in my week to read it. This is my story…
When I began reading Kiss of Snow, I was nervous. Crazy, I know, but I was worried about how Hawke would make me feel. I’ve had mixed feelin

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. Normally, when I’m enjoying a book I plow through it, but with this one I wanted to take my time so I would have something to look forward to everyday. Hawke, the alpha of the SnowDancer pack is an enticing and darkly seductive leading man who is tormented by his desire for the X-Psy Sienn ...more

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 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!

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 was amazing, it more than surpassed my expectations.

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!!

I loved seeing Sienna with her friends and being a youngster.The bar scenes were awesome. Hawke was a tough nut to crack at first but

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.

Very, very intrigued as to who the ghost is!

""Ah baby, you know I do what I want." Rubbing his chin on her hair, he squeezed her hip. "Man and wolf, we both adore you. No way am I letting you go after the hell you’ve put me through over the years.""

"She blew out a breath between gritted teeth. "Sometimes I really want to" -a frustrated sound- "bite you!"
He froze. "I might let you."
"I won't do it if you'd enjoy it."
Bad tempered thing. His wolf liked that about her. "Let's play."
"I might not be Silent any longer, but I still have the perfec

I was fortunate to have won an ARC of Kiss of Snow and read one of the most anticipated romance books of this year. It definitely did not disappoint! It has everything you could want in a paranormal romance - action, suspense, passion, adventure and paranormal elements. Hawke and Sienna are sizzling together. Hawke is one of those heroes you won’t forget - he’s thrilling, intense, deep, demanding, protective, he’s the Alpha wolf of SnowDancer but he’s also tender,

I am mad at myself that I read this book so quickly. I've been waiting for what seems like forever, and I really meant to savor this and read it slowly. But I just couldn't. The Psy/Changeling series is one of my favorites, so that would have been enough enticement to read fast. But that's not even the main reason I whipped through this book; it was the main characters. I mean, it's Hawke and Sienna. The sexual tension has been building between them since book one and all the way through the res ...more

At last Hawke and Sienna's book! I have been looking forward to this book since I started reading this series and I had built it up so much through the other books I thought I was bound to be disappointed. I wasn't! I fracking LOVED it!

I am not going to do a synopsis as I usually do. If you have been reading this series then you know what has been going on and if you haven't then go read my review of Slave to Sensation and start from the beginning with a story of another delicious alpha. But thi
