Start your review of Kaleb and Sahara’s Meeting with Sascha and Lucas (Psy-Changeling, #13.1)
Sophia Triad
“He’d do anything for her, I think.” Whatever Sascha had expected to feel from Kaleb, it hadn’t been that raw violence of love. “She’s the same.” The two were as tightly bonded as changeling mates. “It makes Kaleb more dangerous now than he’s ever been.”

Sascha evaluates the relationship of Kaleb and Sahara. And she is more than happy with what they feel.

Oh, the joy when two or more Alphas are in the same tiny space. :D
Aly is so frigging bored
Nalini Singh... we all know I love her so there's nothing else left to say :)
Oh the posturing. I loved how the ladies seemed to put the guys in their places.

Oh Hallelujah! I was so disappointed when this scene was mentioned, but not elaborated on in Shield of Winter. I figured this meet up would be epically fun and it was that.

Two powerhouse couples in the series with two seriously big-time alphas was just too good. Loved getting this expanded deleted scene of how exactly things went down. Sascha wants to check the temperature of Sahara and Kaleb's relationship and she gets an eye-opener. Love this!
4-4.5 stars

This was a really good deleted scene. It was actually in Shield of Winter but it was a much shorter scene in the book. I can see why they didn't feel the need for the longer scene in the book but the longer version is an interesting glimpse. :)

A free short story, 13.1 in the Psy-Changeling paranormal romance series, revolving around shapeshifters and psychics. The focus is on two couples Sascha and Lucas of DarkRiver and Sahara and Kaleb of the Psy.

If you're interested, there is a chronological listing of the Psy-Changeling books on my website.

My Take
This is a deleted scene from chapter 7 in Shield of Winter , 13, which was included in Nalini Singh's newsletter dated 10 March 2015.

Singh is using a third person simple subjective poi
If I hadn’t know beforehand that Nalini had written a separate story on this, I would have been pissed that this scene had only been brushed over in Heart of Obsidian. Kind of like how I’m still pissed that people keep referring to Sahara’s time at DarkRiver, which is barely shown, and which I, for one, would have loved to have pages and pages of material on. Hmph. Anyway, there’s not much I can say about this story, because it’s pretty much what the title indicates it to be. It remains hilariou ...more

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.

When reading the Psy-Changeling series Inwas really looking forward to Sasha and Lucas meeting with Kaleb and Sahara and then I was so disappointed when it was just glossed over. Glad ai got to know what happened!

Kaleb and Sahara visit Lucas and Sascha to get DR co-op. They really just want to see that Kaleb and Sahara are the real deal. Sahara is as gracious as ever, Kaleb surly but willing to do whatever Sahara wants.
Extra 1/2 star

Kaleb and Sahara’s Meeting with Sascha and Lucas by Nalini Singh was not much longer than its title. As this was touted to be a full rendition of what happened during the meeting between these two power couples, I have to say that I was slightly disappointed in its length. We got basically the same information in "Shield of Winter" but it is definitely worth the read, as are all of the deleted scenes included on the author's website. Enjoy!

What happens when you put two extremely alpha men in the same room as each other when they only have a tentative truce, neither of them is quite ready to trust the other and they both have their other halves in the room and therefore potentially in danger?

Read this short to find out but let's just say it's a good job Sascha and Sahara are already friends and were able to help ease the tension :o) I'm looking forward to seeing these guys working more together in the future!

This is a free vignette written by Singh for fans of the series. In this vignette Kaleb and Sahara come to meet with Sascha and Lucas. Sahara has prompted Kaleb to try and be friends with the DarkRiver leader. Lucas wants to know whether the bond between Sahara and Kaleb is fake. The two couples evaluate one another and Lucas and Sascha recognize the true connection between the other couple. This was a cute interaction between the two. It shows how Kaleb is completely devoted to Sahara.

“I’ve been told to be more diplomatic,” he said, his gaze locking with Lucas’s once again. “And to not provoke you.”

Sascha hid her smile when Sahara groaned and dropped her head against Kaleb’s shoulder [...]

Is that a sense of humor I might detect here Mr. Tall Dark and Handsome?

I think it is and I'm pretty sure I'm quite enjoying it.

Pretty boring, but there was this lovely tidbit:
“Now, let’s go talk to your other feral friend.”
Lucas growled, the sound so deep it filled the room. “Stop calling Hawke my friend. He’s a wolf. It’s against the laws of nature.”

Great to read this scene again! These are both power couples in the series, and this meeting is kinda important! Loved it!

*First read April 14th, 2016*
Loved this deleted scene, it was great to see Sascha see the bond between Kaleb and Sahara!

Quite a cool pov meeting between these two alpha couples. Very enjoyable.
These 4 need a book about them. Maybe Hawke and Sienna too.

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.
