HOSTAGE TO PLEASURE by Nalini Singh
Why is this quote fantastic?
Because it’s from Nalini Singh, that’s why. LOL. I’ve adored Nalini Singh’s writing ever since I read her Guild Hunter books. And I couldn’t believe that I had doubts before I read her Psy-Changeling series. This series was my first foray into shape-shifters but then I read Slave to Sensation, the first book, and never looked back, as they say. Although technically, I did look back, if only to re-read and re-read them, especially HOSTAGE TO PLEASURE, which is my ultimate favorite from the series.
Also, I love how Ashaya always reveals her secret thoughts and yearnings in her sort-of diary. And the quotes above describe the shaky and yet powerfully consuming nature of her relationship with Dorian. I love it!
Separated from her son and forced to create a neural implant that will mean the effective enslavement of her psychically gifted race, Ashaya Aleine is the perfect Psy–cool, calm, emotionless…at least on the surface. Inside, she’s fighting a desperate battle to save her son and escape the vicious cold of the PsyNet. Yet when escape comes, it leads not to safety, but to the lethal danger of a sniper’s embrace.
DarkRiver sniper Dorian Christensen lost his sister to a Psy killer. Though he lacks the changeling ability to shift into animal form, his leopard lives within. And that leopard’s rage at the brutal loss is a clawing darkness that hungers for vengeance. Falling for a Psy has never been on Dorian’s agenda. But charged with protecting Ashaya and her son, he discovers that passion has a way of changing the rules…
