"Alpha wolf and Cardinal Psy, a combustible mating!"

In this Psy/Changeling story, we're once again with the SnowDancer wolf pack. Ever since we were introduced to the SnowDancer wolf pack, Sienna Lauren has been getting under Hawke's—the Alpha of the pack—skin. A fact Sienna is very happy about. However, Sienna wants to do more than just get under Hawke's skin and always has. Ever since the Lauren family defected from the Psy, Sienna has wanted Hawke as her mate. Now she's finally old enough for him to notice her as a woman, not that Sienna ever was a child. As a cardinal X-Psy, Sienna was taken from her family at the age of five and became Councillor Ming's pet project. At least now that Sienna has been working with Sascha, she's learned to control that X power to some degree. But it's growing—a lot.

Hawke met his destined mate at a young age, but then he lost her while they were still children. Now Hawke knows he will never experience the mating bond with a woman. But there's something about Sienna and has been ever since her family asked for and was given asylum in the SnowDancer wolf pack. Since that time, they've all integrated into the pack. Judd is one of his lieutenants now, Walker has become invaluable working with the juveniles, the two children, Toby and Marlee are loved by all and then there's Sienna. Beautiful, dangerous Sienna, who's never showed any fear of him. The one woman Hawke would like nothing better than to call his own, even if he can't offer her a mating bond. However, Hawke still feels that Sienna would never be able to handle his wolf with as young as she is.

And there's the Pure Psy SnowDancer has to worry about. For some reason, they want to take out SnowDancer. And this is where Sienna's knowledge of Ming comes in very handy as she can predict what he will do and all Psy know Ming is the best at military strategy. Naturally, Hawke takes advantage of her advice, finally seeing her as an adult and not a child.

Will Hawke and Sienna get together? Will they ever experience the pleasure that comes with a mating bond? What of the fact Sienna is a cardinal X-Psy? Will they be able to find a way to keep her from self-destructing as her power increases? And what about the Psy? Will they defeat SnowDancer?

KISS OF SNOW is cover to cover excitement. There is nonstop action in this story by Nalini Singh as it comes down to the battle between Psy Councillor Scott with his Pure Psy faction and the SnowDancer wolf pack. Still, this is a romance and we have plenty of that between Hawke and Sienna, and there's even the added bonus of a second mating in this story. And don't forget, Sascha was real close to having her baby. I've said this before and it definitely bears repeating: Nalini Singh has a real talent in taking two very wounded people and bringing them together. There is nothing more touching than watching the hero and heroine come together and seeing how, in this case, they deal with Sienna's power and Hawke's past. I have to admit, even though I get an electronic version of the books to read, I always buy a paper copy when it releases because I absolutely adore all of Nalini Singh's books. I can't wait to see what happens with the Psy now. This is an excellent series and I cannot recommend it highly enough.

The hardcover debut of New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh and her highly acclaimed Psy/Changeling novels.

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 wild fury of the wolf.

Then Sienna changes the rules-and suddenly, there is no more distance, only the most intimate of battles between two people who were never meant to meet. Yet as they strip away each other's secrets in a storm of raw emotion, they must also ready themselves for a far more vicious fight...

A deadly enemy is out to destroy SnowDancer, striking at everything they hold dear, but it is Sienna's darkest secret that may yet savage the pack that is her home-and the alpha who is its heartbeat.

Genre: Paranormal Romance, Shapeshifter, Psychic
