Hostage to Pleasure by Nalini Singh

Hostage to Pleasure by Nalini Singh

I must have seriously overlooked Hostage to Pleasure by Nalini Singh when I read it the first time because in reading it this time I am in love with its story. My symptoms consist of the heart eyes, heart palpitations, and sweaty palms. Hostage to Pleasure was seriously something special to behold. Dorian’s story has been, in my opinion, one of the storylines that the Psy-Changeling series has been building up to – the other being Hawke and Sienna’s story. So just imagine with all of the build up of 4 books with the novellas in-between how excited I was to get back into this series and read Dorian’s story with fresh eyes and fresh expectations. Now that I’m thinking about it, I’ve been looking forward to Ashaya’s story as well with just as much anticipation. From the very start – I’m not just talking about the beginning of Hostage […]

I found the first portion, the first 25%, of Branded by Fire by Nalini Singh really hard to get into. I can’t really say if it was Mercy or Riley’s character that made it so dang hard to get into this story, but it could very well have been a combination of both. Even though I did end up enjoying Branded by Fire it was a long and tumultuous road getting there. Before I read Branded by Fire, Mercy and Riley were characters I neither loved nor hated and in previous stories they just weren’t characters I paid much attention to. Yeah, we learned a little more about Riley’s motivations and past in Caressed by Ice but not so much that I clamored to read more about him. The same can be said about Mercy’s character in Hostage to Pleasure. So was it my lukewarm feelings towards both Mercy and […]

Play of Passion by Nalini Singh

For the sake of not repeating myself I’m just going to put it out there that my main issue with Play of Passion by Nalini Singh was the same issue I had with Branded By Fire, with a slight variation. With that being said I did end up loving Play of Passion. At first when I read the synopsis for Play of Passion I thought that Mercy’s friend from Branded By Fire was named Drew too and was being paired with Indigo. Thinking of Riley and Brenna’s brother Drew didn’t even enter into the mix nor did I think that he would even get his own story. I am seriously starting to realize I should never underestimate or assume anything about Nalini Singh’s writing. The one variation that I was talking about previously was the age difference between Indigo and Drew. Outside of the female dominant verses male dominant games, the […]

Kiss of Snow by Nalini Singh

Okay see now I’m conflicted. After reading Kiss of Snow by Nalini Singh I’m now arguing with myself on whether its story is the climax to the Psy-Changelings series or if its just the start of the newest journey to come after the climax that was Bonds of Justice. (Sigh) whatever the heck it was Kiss of Snow was the kind of rollercoaster, emotional and action-packed, that I love to ride! From the introduction of Hawke and Sienna’s character in the earlier stories of Nalini Singh’s Psy-Changelings series my anticipation for their story, especially when their attraction/forbidden attraction surfaced early on in this series, has ramped up with each installment. Before I even knew what they Psy-Changelings series consisted of I first, blindly, picked up Kiss of Snow way back when and fell in love. I’d also caught up on Singh’s Guild Hunter series (I believe I had just finished Archangel’s Consort […]

The Blacksmith Queen by G.A. Aiken

Oh my goodness! The Blacksmith Queen by G.A. Aiken was unlike anything I thought I would be reading after receiving news of it’s release and receiving it as an ARC. I’ll admit to thinking I would receive a story similar to her Dragon Kin series but I am so glad that this story and its series stands on it own and gives a whole new experience to the historical paranormal romance sub-genre. I won’t say that you need to scrap everything the synopsis told you because I truly believe the synopsis was cleverly written – it did it’s job of intriguing readers and it left room for the story itself to keep the readers intrigued enough to keep them reading. Additionally, I won’t say that the start to The Blacksmith Queen was slow even though at the time of reading it I felt that it was – I hope that […]
