Highly anticipated books like this always scare me. What happens if the author can’t take the pressure of writing such an anticipated story and it falls flat? What if it doesn’t go the way I WANT it to go? There are no guarantees and I was both extremely excited and extremely scared to start reading.
Another fear of mine was the fact that knowing this book had the big Ghost reveal, this story would be centered around the Psy. In the past, the psy-only books have not been my favorites. They lack some of the intensity that the changelings bring to the world.
I shouldn’t have worried. I was hooked from the very first line. I wrote my review with names in it and then have changed them to HERO and HEROINE in case people don’t want to know.
There are some series that always have a tough leader, a guy that makes those sometimes ruthless decisions that go against most morals. He may seem heartless but there is always a purpose to his actions. The last one I remember that caught my interest as much was Jonas from the Breeds series by Lora Leigh. But after that, it’s been the HERO. The HERO, who should be psy and Silent, but has so much bottled up passion he could melt you at his feet. The HERO, who is ruthless in the pursuit of what he wants and won’t leave anything or anyone who gets in his path standing.
Then focus all that intensity on the woman he loves. OMG!!!!! Ms. Singh, I am in awe of what you’ve done with this story. From all the layers to the HERO we get to unfold, to the story of his one true love. This is a second chance at love story. The girl he fell in love with as a kid and was taken from him. Brutally. The one he’s been searching for since. For such a hard shell on the exterior, I couldn’t help but melt at the softness inside of him.
The HERO is, in one word, INTENSE. There’s so much he has learned to keep bottled up and as that shell cracks and all that intensity spills out….. Be prepared to fall in love. Changelings have nothing on the HERO.
The HEROINE was also perfect for him. The perfect balance to his intensity. Nurturing, soft, but strong at the core. Able to stand on her own. Able to fight for her man. Able to heal him.
Then there’s the Ghost. On this subject, I’m keeping my mouth shut. However, I will say that I found the big reveal a bit….anticlimactic. After waiting to find out who the Ghost is for so long, I was expecting bombs going off, cities collapsing and the Ghost riding in on some white horse to save the race. I don’t know. I wanted something epic. Instead, we find out as almost an afterthought. And that’s all I’m going to say. No more.
Nalini Singh’s writing has the ability to paint a picture in my mind. Beautifully crafted words that flow and let the imagination run wild. And for the span of time it took me to read this book, I was living it.
I wish I could give this book 10 Stars! Every single page of this book is packed with intensity. It’s enthralling, all consuming, and mind blowing. Yes, I was thoroughly blown away! This will be one I want to re-read and hold dear.
The bed slammed back to the ground. Hard. So did every other item in the room.
“I’d line the streets with bodies before I’d ever hurt you.”
“Why are you holding me?” Closing his hand over hers, the tanned skin of his shoulders warm in the sunlight pouring through the window, he said, “Because you belong to me.”

I am one of those rare people that, although I’ve read everything that Nalini Singh has written, I didn’t jump on all the short stories that were available. So getting this book for me was a treat because they were ALL new stories. However, if you’ve followed Nalini’s writing to a tee, then you’ll only really get two new stories. That being said, this was a fast read for me, devouring this complete book in a day. It was wonderful to be part of the Psy-Changeling book again and it captivated me as usual. WILD INVITATION is a must read for followers of the series, full of Ms. Singh’s signature sexual tension.
Beat of Temptation – 5 stars
This is one of those stories that you just have to love. We all know Tammy and Nate, they’ve been mated since we’ve known them in book one of the series. Tammy is the healer in current day Psy-Changeling time. But it was very sweet to go back and see how they ended up together. Nate is older than Tammy by 10 years and this story takes place when Tammy is 19. They’ve known they were mates for a while but Nate has stayed away thinking that she’s too young and deserves to have freedom to live her life before being tied down by the mating bond. This is rooted into him because of his own parents issues. This story is charged with sexual tension in typical Nalini Singh style.
Stroke of Enticement – 5 stars
Zach Quinn is quite simply the perfect man. Well, that is because he’s a leopard too. See I have a thing for leopards, and this one is sexy as hell, with a great sense of humor, a total flirt that can melt your panties away. Deliciously possessive and an understanding alpha male, if there is one. But enough about Zach. His mate is Annie, she’s a human teacher and he meets her when he goes to pick up his nephew from school. He recognizes his mate immediately, but she’s human and he has to charm her and win her over, woe her. And wooing he did. They were a great couple and another sexy feline shifter to read about.
Declaration of Courtship – 4 stars
The sweet story, because there has to be one. Grace and Cooper are both wolves in the SnowDancer pack, but Grace is submissive and Cooper is extremely alpha. That makes for a skittish courtship that Grace doesn’t understand and that scares her. Cooper has to take baby steps and slowly win Grace over, so that she understands that they can work together even though there’s such a gap in dominance. Full of chemistry and sexual tension, DECLARATION OF COURTSHIP was a great addition to the series!
“You don’t mind teeth, do you, Grace?”
Texture of Intimacy – 4 stars
Lara and Walker are some of my favorite characters. Lara is the healer of the SnowDancer pack and Walker is psy. Their mate bond happened in KISS OF SNOW but Ms. Singh takes us one step further from that in TEXTURE OF INTIMACY. After a mating, it doesn’t all have to be roses and Lara and Walker are still struggling on how to be happily mated. Walker has a lot of his own issues from his psy conditioning and how he’s dealing with showing emotions. But he’s one dark and brooding, sexy and understated alpha male. I loved getting to know him better in this story.
Welcome to our review of Tangle of Need, we have such fun doing our chat review Kiss of Snow last time that we decided to do it again! So read ahead at our brilliant and insightful look in to how hot Riaz, Vesic and Kaleb are Tangle of Need!
Suzanne: Hello Franilicious!
Fran: Ummm Suz I dont know about that nickname you gave me there, sounds a bit like anallicious dont know if I want to be called that you know...
Suzanne: If the shoe fits... Lmao!
Fran: lol! Now where's Annie?!?!?!
Suz: Hahaha would be worse if it was Annie's name. Analicious! Lol! Annie wiggle your sexy bottom here!
Suzanne: Heyyy there Analicious!
Fran: See that got her to show up!
Suzanne: Anal always gets peoples attention!
Fran: Tangle of Need girls! Who was excited about this release?
Annie: I am!
Fran: I was sooo ready for this book. Did you have an interest in Riaz after Kiss of Snow?
Annie: Yes, I wanted to know what would happen to him.
Fran: I thought he was sexy as hell and couldn't wait to see more of his alpha goodness
Suzanne: Honestly....not really! I couldn't remember who he was!!!
Fran: What??? Talk, dark and dangerous!
Suzanne: Lol I am the odd on out! He didnt do it for me....!
Annie: Uh oh *slaps Suz* How could you?!?
Fran: Well Riaz pushed all my buttons before and during this book
Suzanne: He was hot and stuff but he didnt get me going...
Fran: It's okay you have Riley for that.
Suzanne: Lmao! Damn right! I was most excited when Riley was "on screen"
Annie: I wish there was more of him [Riaz} though because I liked his um, determination when he got down 'n durtay
Fran: I have to say personally I wanted to see a lot more of Riaz and Adria.
Suzanne: I didnt! I thought the main story was far more interesting then Riaz and Adria
Fran: They were almost a secondary plot in this book when it should've been about them
Annie: I agree. A lot was going on and I think it displaced some of the attention
Suzanne: This book reminded me of Manny and Payne's (Lover Unleashed) book, the h/H were almost incidental. The story would have flowed just as well without them, they didn't add anything to the plot. They would have been a better novella.
Annie: Yes, Suz! So right! I totally agree
Fran: I loved the true mate stuff and how he didn't let that pull take him away from Adria
Suzanne: Yeah that was sweet.
Annie: I thought Singh did a good job of letting go of Riaz's true mate and making him fall in love with Adria.
Fran: And he was leaving all the little presents for her *awwww*
Suzanne: It was all very sweet, but I got slightly bored when they kept going on about there poor battered, shredded and holey hearts, someone really needed to offer them some indigestion tablets, they would have been right as rain!
Fran: BWHAHAHAHA Suz!
Suzanne: What did you think of Adria?
Fran: I actually liked Adria
Annie: I liked her. I liked her strength.
Fran: Strong and soft
Suzanne: Lol! She sounds like toilet tissue! Yeah she was okay I just wasn't feeling them
Annie: What would you rate the sex scenes?
Suzanne: There should have been more of them!
Fran: Yes I could've used more
Annie: I thought she did great with writing the sexual tension though. Singh is number one when it comes to writing sexual tension. No other can compete.
Suzanne: Yeah, she is good at that.
Fran: But you know there had to be time for the funny moments, I mean come on I LOVED seeing drunk Riley and Hawke talking about pupcats
Annie: OMG I loved that!!!!! Easily my fave part of the book!
Suzanne: Lol! I was thinking cups and pubs lol
Fran: No wait pupcubs? LMAO Suz, is it time to go drinking over there? Cheers!
Annie: LOL Im dying over here hahahaah
Suzanne: No as in Pups + Cubs = Pubs and Cups
Annie: So cute!
Fran: *whispers to Annie...* Suz is having shots while she's talking to us
Suzanne: Tequila only baby!
Annie: Hawke and Sienna did get a lot of air time though. Did you like it or not? Did you think the POV we got from Hawke and Sienna further strengthened their bond and relationship from Kiss of Snow?
Suzanne: I liked Hawke and Sienna parts!
Fran: Yeah, I think this book really solidified the relationship between Hawke and Sienna, you could see how they lived day to day...it was cute, loved the cookie making!
Fran: What do you think about the plot?! Where do you think things are going?
Annie: Honestly, I have no idea. I know big things are coming, but HOW...that's all up to Nalini. She has so many things going on, I can't keep track. She can write 12 more books if she wanted to
Fran: I agree. I know she plans to end things in the next couple of books at least with the original war and the Ghost etc.
Suzanne: It is interesting to see how the Psy are fracturing, if you think of them from the first book...its crazy
Fran: I think it's all very exciting, and we got to see a lot of Vasic!!! Puuurrrrrr
Suzanne: OMG yes! I am so glad you mentioned him!
Fran: Isn't Vasic the hottest thing? I think he's my next hero to drool over and anxiously await a book
Suzanne: I was loving Vasic, I wanted to snuggle him and stroke his hair lol.
Fran: I can picture stroking other things, but you know...
Annie: Wait, who is Vasic again?
Fran: The sexy teleporter
Suzanne: *gasp* Annie how can you say that!? I CLAIM Vasic!
Annie: Ah yes...but I have my eyes set on Kaleb actually
Suzanne: Yes Kaleb, who the frack is he looking for?
Fran:His mate!!!! I'm almost positive he has a Changeling mate
Suzanne: I thought maybe Alice, but I reckon I am wrong now, but I still think human and not Changeling.
Annie: You mean, Kaleb is looking for me.
Fran: LMAO! You think? I think by being a Changeling it would def make him change certain things about his ways.
Suzanne: But he found her in a Psych ward I thought that would mean human.
Fran: I love Kaleb too, I just know he's got to be the Ghost
Annie: I think he is the Ghost too!
Suzanne: I am not too sure, I think it would be too obvious...!
Annie: Speaking of Psych wards...What did you think of all the stuff with Alice? I was a bit bored with those bits, they were slow. Do you think Alice will have someone to love? And who do you think?
Fran: Wouldn't it be crazy if it was Vasic and Alice
Suzanne: A psy I think...maybe Vasic? Lol Fran! Our minds are one!
Annie: That would be awesome! UTC matchmaking!
Suzanne: Who do you think is next?
Fran: Kaleb for sure
Annie: Mine mine mine
Suzanne: I was thinking Kaleb as well
Fran: Actually maybe not...if he is the Ghost and there's at least two books until the resolution of the Ghost storyline then it has to be someone else before
Suzanne: What about Kenji! He was adorabke!
Annie: Oh look at you, Fran you got your detective hat on!I LOVED KENJI! AWWW
Suzanne: Thats if he [Kaleb] is Ghost...
Fran: Maybe him and Jem next? I want to see how he got that bruise!
Annie: I wouldn't mind reading that book!
Fran: I loved Kenji to. And I do think Kaleb is the Ghost, please pretty please Ms. Singh let him be the Ghost!!!!
Annie: Okay, if you could describe Tangle of Need with two words, what would it be?
Fran: Storyline progress LOL Orrrrrrr hot & funny
Suzanne: Psy Meltdown or even better... VASIC Mine
Annie: I would say...Slow Burn.
Suzanne: Oh oh, or even better... BITE ME...PLEASE. Lol
Fran: LMAO, I def wanted Riaz to bite me, that's for sure!
Suzanne: I want Vasic to bite me
Fran: So what are you looking forward the most in the last part of the series? I can't believe we have to wait another year to see what happens next!!
Annie: Kaleb. I'm looking forward to the part where Kaleb finds me, sweeps me away and we have hot monkey sex
Suzanne: Kalebs book. I want to know about who he is looking for and what happens when he finds Annie LOL!
Fran: Okay so we can all agree on this one: WE WANT KALEB, MORE, NOW, GIMME GIMME GIMME
Suzanne: Yep with bells on!
I hope you enjoyed the review as much as we enjoyed making it! I think what we can draw from this is that Nalini Singh has once again written a winner and that our harems are still expanding...!

For Nalini Singh’s tenth book of the Psy-Changeling series, we decided to do something special for this Kiss of Snow review. Since we are all big fans of his series, we decided to write a “review” as an IM transcript. Please note that what you read below is actually a real conversation between Francesca and I and that the opinions expressed here are our own and events that take place did in fact happen.
We hope you enjoy and let us know in the comments if you would like to see more reviews written in this type of format! We’d love to hear your thoughts! On to KISS OF SNOW:
Francesca: I think we need to give a warning to anyone that will read this book!
Annie: Okay, like this? WARNING! This book is so addictive, so sexy that you’ll need an extra change of panties (or two)!! Will require a day’s rest after reading the orgasmic alpha that is Hawke! Bring your gush bucket! You mean like that?
Annie: And a defibulator for when your heart stops beating at Hawke’s sexy words!!
Francesca: Exactly! YOU HAVE BEEN FOREWARNED!! OK, so I think we can start with our fangirl crush. How excited are we to finally have Hawke's book?!?!?!
Annie: Hawke! Hawke! Hawkee!!!! Hawke has been a favourite of mine every since he flirted with the DarkRiver alpha's mate, Sascha.
Francesca: Mine too. I feel like I've waited forever to read his story! Did you always want his mate to be Sienna?
Annie: Hawke has had my heart since the beginning. And NO, I wanted to be his mate. But if there had to be someone, then yes, Sienna was always the one for him. There was no doubt about that. How do you feel about the age difference between Hawke and Sienna?
Francesca: They've been tip-toeing around each other since Hawke took the Laurens' in, and as long as they waited for her to be adult, the age difference was never an issue for me. However I think it was addressed and dealt with perfectly in this book. My only problem with the age difference...We get 50% of what Hawke could've been. What about the romance and all the sexual tension?
Annie: I think the romance starts off from the very beginning. They have great chemistry. They just haven't acted upon it yet, you know?
Francesca: I agree. The build up is actually PERFECT. I like that he's not jumping her every time she offers. LOL
Annie: She's scared of him. He's a sexually potent guy and in addition, he's alpha. She's young too. Plus a Psy.
Francesca: What was your take on Sienna's development in character? From previous appearances in other books and her actions/decisions in this book?
Annie: I thinks she has come a long way. I didn't think I'd like her much. I don't LOVE her, but I don't hate her either. I think....I'm jealous mostly.
Francesca: I'm jealous too, but I'm just a little disappointed that Hawke is not getting the hot book from cover to cover I was expecting, he has to contain himself because he's afraid of scaring her.
Annie: It's not as hot as I thought it would be. But I knew there would be lots of sexual tension and there's plenty of that. I like that Sienna knows she wants Hawke despite her "younger" status. Hawke is infuriating, I love it when he gets angry!
Francesca: Hawke is just TOO SENSUAL, TOO DECADENT, TOO SEXY. I'm a puddle at his feet right now! He can do with me as he pleases
Annie: That's so true! I wouldn't change Hawke given the chance. I thought he was so sexy, so irresistible, I couldn't get enough of him! (Cue the swooning, please) And what about the sex scenes? Yeah?
Francesca: Hawke is a SEX GOD!
Annie: Lots of groans and "Ohh my GOD!!!" moments for me. I had to take frequent breaks to control myself.
Francesca: He's soooo alpha. I was literally panting through the last 25% of the book.
Annie: Gah! Yes! The ending was... wow! I have no words. Beyond anything I could conjure up myself. Action-packed is an understatement. I know you're a big fan of Riley and Drew as well, after reading this... who's your man now?
Francesca: That's a tough question. Can I just keep all 4??? You forgot to include my man Judd in there! You know, something I loved about this book is how we still get to see Judd, Riley and Drew involved in the storyline.
Annie: How would I forget sexy Judd?! And I won't judge if you want them all! I'd do the same! Speaking of others in the storyline... What did you think of Sascha?
Francesca: She was a bit different in this one. I liked how they're slowly showing us her relationship with Nikita developing and maybe even unfolding things that could've been in the past. Nikita may have a heart after all! I think she loved Sascha from the beginning and was protecting her. And what about Lucas?
Annie: I liked Lucas's protectiveness in this one. Loved that he would do anything to protect his woman and child. It was endearing and hot, showing that animalistic side that I don't think we always witness with the level-headed alpha. Okay, if Lucas and Hawke were dueling it out, who do you think would win?
Francesca: Definitely Hawke!!! I personally think he is a tougher alpha, at least from what we saw in this book.
Annie: Hawke was amazing!
Francesca: I'm curious to see what you thought of the Psy in this one!
Annie: Is it just me or don't the Psy seem more dead and emotionless than they did in previous books? So devoid of anything. Creeps me the hell out.
Francesca: Yeah I agree. Pure Psy and Ming are getting very bad!! But the arrows have some feeling!
Annie: I'm very interested to see how that plays out! My mind is still trying to wrap my brain around who the ghost is.
Francesca: I was pretty sure it was Kaleb before. And I'm still 70% - 75% on Kaleb, but after this book, Vasic is starting to look like another likely possibility. But I just want Kaleb to get a book!
Annie: What about Walker and Lara? Aren't they so sweet together?
Francesca: Lara and Walker were such a nice addition to this book. I thought they were getting their own book before, but I think their story kept the sexual tension going! Loved it! Walker is so strong and sweet and loyal. I loved to see him caring for Lara all the time.
Annie: They had their own bit of tension going on themselves. I loved it! It felt like an added bonus to an already sexy book. Who do you think should get their own book?
Francesca: RIAZ!!!!!! Right now I'm liking his character the most. Mysterious and sexy! So maybe Riaz and Jem??? What do we think about that? I want Riaz to get a mate! LOL He seems so intense. Have we seen Jem before? And after giving him some time to grow up more, I think Kit will have a really hot book.
Annie: LOL! Yes yes! I want more of both!
Francesca: Which brings me to my next question... We met a lot of young wolves, who did you like best?
Annie: Hmm Tai. Kid’s growing up quick!
Francesca: I think Evie (Indigo's sister) sounds like a really cool character. I hope she gets a story even if she doesn't end up with Tai.
Annie: Even if they don't end up together, I would still want to read about them.
Francesca: I also liked that we get to see the dynamics of the SnowDancers as a pack. The strategy, the meetings, the caring for each other...
Annie: Sooo....Team DarkRiver or Team SnowDancer?
Francesca: You should know my answer to that! SNOWDANCER.
Annie: Ok ok I did know that. Me? I'm Team Changeling! LOL I can’t decide!
Francesca: I’m laughing my ass off now. Apparently my boyfriend has our convo on HIS phone somehow and he just told me that there’s this Annie girl texting him about some Lucas dude.
Francesca: He says we’re both retarded! Then he started laughing, LOL!
Annie: This is so embarrassing! Omg, tell him I’m sorry. Next time I text him, I’ll talk about a chick instead, LOL!
Francesca: Okay, he said he’ll respond to that and you can be his secret lover!
Annie: LOL, you got it baby! I wonder what he thought about the gush bucket comment. Never mind. I don’t want to further embarrass myself.
Francesca: OMG I can't stop laughing! Alright, so I have one last question for you... Is it just me being extremely weird, but I have a thing for the RAT, Teijan, what about you?
Annie: Me too!!! Maybe he'll get a book soon? What do you girls think about him? Tell us in the comments!
Francesca: Well, I think we're done! And I'm still Team SnowDancer. What team are you on? VOTE BELOW!!!!
"How was dessert?" she asked, her throat a husky reminder that she'd screamed at the end. A flash of teeth. "I plan to go back for seconds in a bit." She sucked in a breath. "Bad wolf." Sliding down his hand, he tugged at her damp curls. "Hungry wolf."
Her heart, her damned vulnerable heart, had been his from the day she understood what it was he incited against him. She had no true shields against him. Never had. Never would.(less)

I knew it would be because both characters are amazing and they are both dominating changelings! Their chemistry is explosive. And I think I'm in love with Drew, he is the sweetest guy. I will admit that I was getting a bit annoyed at Indigo at times, and wished that she chased after him a bit too, but it all worked out great in the end. And of course, I kept waiting for the glimpses of Hawke and Sienna, I think the next book has been set up perfectly! There's no doubt in my mind now that Sienna will the Hawke's mate (which makes me so happy, it couldn't be any other way) but also there's a great plot to develop.(less)

Fragile: Handle With Care. This book is so hot it will have you panting and on fire!
This book is one of my favorites in this series. It just has it all. Starting with my favorite characters, Riley and Mercy. Seriously! To start with.... Riley is just perfect. Yes, he's had a rough past, dealing with the death of both his parents protecting the pack when he was nothing but a child, and then the abduction, torture and almost death of his sister. He's always taken up the responsibility, and the blame at times, for everybody elses lives. Always in control. Always focused. Always thinking. But when he puts all that focus, control and thoughts on one woman, she doesn't stand a chance. I was a puddle at his feet from the first page and that didn't change throughout the book. He is one hot, very dominant, amazing wolf RAWR. You can't help but want to have a tumble in the forest with him... or in the shower... or against the door... no need for a bed really. They are completely overrated.
And lets not leave Mercy behind! She is still to date one of my favorite females in this series, maybe even my favorite. She is a dominant leopard, who struggles with her own dominant tendencies, and who won't settle for anything less in a mate as well. She's completely loyal to her pack and to her family, and she's a damn good sentinel. No wilting flower, she doesn't need anyone to protect her. She can do that better than most males.
That's one thing Riley has to learn to overcome if things can work out between them. Family also has to stick their noses in their relationship, and Mercy's grandmother sends a couple of hot Brazilian male leopards from her pack to see if they could be Mercy's mate.
Now, I wouldn't mind having these two come back to the series and maybe even getting their own books. Eduardo and Joaquin were definitely good alpha male material, and in my opinion, the series does need an infusion of hot felines! And speaking of hot felines... I had completely forgotten about Mercy's brothers. So, how about giving them some books!!! Bastian, Grey and Sage have some potential! Maybe Bastian could be the next DarkRiver book, huh?
And lets not leave aside the storyline progression, action and drama in this book. The Psy are going crazy and the conflict is escalating. The Alliance is striking against changelings, against their own, and provoking a war. They are controlling other psy into some terrible acts. And behind all this psy-craziness, who could be the Ghost? I have my ideas, and I can't wait to find out.
The Kincaid family was, is, and probably will always be my favorite. Definitely the place you would want to be for family dinners, with all the alpha males, testosterone and just too damn hot men, and incredible women. They are the reason why I am TEAM SNOWDANCER.
Riley looked at his alpha. "Is that your pitch to women? Let's get naked?" He snorted. "No wonder your balls are blue." Hawke gave him a one-finger salute. "Go take care of your own balls."
"Don't pull any shit because you want to show off." "Wait a second." She looked down then back up. "Nope, I haven't grown a cock in the last few minutes. I have no need to prove whose is bigger."
"I have something for you." "Yeah? What? Is it shiny?" They both waited until Indigo had jogged away before resuming their conversation. "So," Riley asked, "what have you got for me?" Taking his hand, she placed it palm-down over her heart. It would hurt like a bitch, she thought, but he was hers to protect as much as she was his. "Me." And she opened up her soul, laid herself bare."
There are no words to describe how sexy Lucas Hunter is. But he's not the only thing I loved about this book.
I absolutely loved the world of the changelings, psy and humans. Such an elaborate world, where the psy are not supposed to feel and are genetically modified to achieve this, through a protocol called Silence. Of course psy also have special powers, and are classified accordingly. Changelings on the other hand are shifters. And they are some of the best written shifters out there!
This book is full of romance, and at the same time it manages to build up a world and track such amazing storylines that draw you in and will keep you glued to the pages. Definetely one I couldn't put down.
Lucas Hunter is Alpha of the DarkRiver, and all his 6ft, dark hair to his shoulders and green eyes make him extremely edible! Even his scars add character. He is also a panther.
"I like something I can hold, touch and smell, something that pleases all my senses."
He has the difficult task to get information out of Sascha Duncan, cardinal psy, daughter of one of the most power psy who sits on their Council, and who is now assigned to work closely on a business project with him. Except Sascha is flawed, or so she thinks. She feels, she wants, and she has abilities she can't quite comprehend. And the more time she spends with Lucas, the more her defenses come down.
"Animal reproduction? That's one way of putting it. Have you ever tried it?" "No. Why would I?" "Because, darling, you might find that the animal in you likes it."
This book is full of intrigue, sexual tension, lots of flirting, lovable characters, characters you love to hate, psy/council politics and, surprisingly, not a lot of sex.
You have to give this series a try! You won't regret it. It's definetely worth reading more than once!
