Clay, Talin, Jon and Noor have become a family.

The little girl was the sweet, affectionate heart of their home. She’d started calling Talin and Clay, Mommy and Papa two months earlier and each time she did, Clay felt as if he’d been given a gift.

So sweet!

Nalini Singh is not an author, she is a creator of BRAIN-CANDY. The most fabulous brain candy! Seriously, my face hurts from so much smiling.

Noor is impossibly cute, Jon melts my heart with his brotherly gestures, and I am overjoyed by Clay and Talin finally having their much deserved “honeymoon phase”.

I know Clay and Talin isn't readers' favorite couple, but I love them - so I loved this peek into their lives too, of course.

I love the family dynamics in this series! How about this sweet scene between big brother and younger sister?

“You can come in my room if you like. I’ll let you sit on the bed.”

Laughing at the generous offer, Jon scooped her up and plopped her in his lap.

HOME is one of Singh's reward for fans. She has various free short vignettes that give glimpses into the lives of her Psy-Changeling series characters apart from the drama of the novels. HOME features Clay and Talin from MINE TO POSSESS along with their adopted children Jon and Noor. The story is about the changes to their home that Clay and Talin make to accommodate their children. As the title of the story suggests it about making a home for their family. I like the story. It is sweet and cute ...more

At the risk of being thought repetitive as I mention, yet again, that my response to this short vignette was smiles and ahhhhs. Clay and Tally do some remodeling of their aerie home so Jon can have some personal space and they make the last touches and then spring surprise gifts on the kids. Clay reflects with sheer joy on the blessings of family and a loving mate.

A very short story available on Nalini Singh’s site and accessible by subscribing to her newsletter, “Home” is 9.7 in the chronology in the Psy-Changeling paranormal romance series. The family focus is on Clay, Tally, Jon, and Noor.

My Take
It’s a sweet story — Singh easily played on my compassion for an abused child and my appreciation for a loving couple wanting to make the children welcome and feel a part of the family.

I do wish I knew if Jon was their natural-born son or an acquired one. It’s

This little short was so cute. I love that we get to see Noor and John secure in their new family and that Clay and Tally let them know by giving them something special in their personal space. It was also great to see Noor willing to share her present, even though John probably wouldn't be caught dead in it.

Nalini kills me with these short stories & I love every minute of it! This one gives us a chance to catch up with Clay & Tally and we get to see how Jon & Noor are doing. The family has come such a long way & it makes me happy to see them getting on so well :-)
So this snippet is one of the moments that made me retroactively become a lot more fond of Tally and Clay, which makes me wish all the more that these scenes has been a larger part of their own book (Mine to Possess). Looking at my notes I apparently thought it was very rude of Nalini to once again go full domestic and endearingly cheesy.

Case in point:

- Noor insisting on wearing her ponytail the exact same way as Tally.

- Every day he woke to her scent, and every night when he fell asleep, it w

Per author's website this short fits between Play of Passion and Kiss of snow. Clay and Talin just finished the renovations to their aerie. The love and care they have for the children, Jon and Noor and each other shines through in this short story.

I love these free short stories that Nalini Singh writes! They give me a little glimpse back into my favorite series and my favorite shifters/Psy. This was so cute with Clay, Tally, Jon & Noor. It's so sweet to see how far these kids have come, and to watch Clay's leopard be all content and proud is priceless! Thanks, Nalini!

Nalini Singh gives her readers a wonderful set of free short stories and deleted scenes. The can be found here:
Take the time to read them. They provide an insightful look at the things that Singh thinks about her characters but does not have room for in her novels.

I've been writing as long as I can remember and all of my stories always held a thread of romance (even when I was writing about a prince who could shoot lasers out of his eyes). I love creating unique characters, love giving them happy endings and I even love the voices in my head. There's no other job I would rather be doing.
