    About “Nalini Singh

    • Nalini Singh

      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 In September 2002, when I got the call that Silhouette Desire wanted to buy my first book, Desert Warrior, it was a dream come true I hope to continue living the dream until I keel over of old age on my keyboard.I was born in Fiji and raised in New Zealand I also spent three years living and working in Japan, during which time I took the chance to travel around Asia I m back in New Zealand now, but I m always plotting new trips If you d like to see some of my travel snapshots, have a look at the Travel Diary page updated every month.So far, I ve worked as a lawyer, a librarian, a candy factory general hand, a bank temp and an English teacher and not necessarily in that order Some might call that inconsistency but I call it grist for the writer s mill.

    • Beat of Temptation #0.5: Rating: 2 starsWell this was disappointing. Even more so because things got off to a great start: The prologue about the Psy trying to make Christmas illegal? Brilliant! How the whole thing blew up in their faces? Great! Unfortunately it all went downhill from there. I was really excited when I found out this was going to be Tamsyn & Nate's story. I love Tamsyn's character and have been wanting to know more about her ever since reading Slave to Sensation. Well the st [...]


    • Beat of Temptation-2.5 starsI liked Tamsyn and was curious about her story when I read Slave to Sensations. But this novella was kinda tame and underwhelming overall. I still have no idea what Nate even looks like which bugged me, and the fact that we didn’t even get a sex scene anywhere in those 80 pages I found really lame.Likee on. Seriously? All these two did was moan and argue over not having sex and not completing the bond so yeah…I was expectingsomething with all that damn build up an [...]


    • Beat of TemptationBeat of Temptation is a prequel to this series and it deals with the healer Tamsyn and Nathan. I went back and read it after I had read the first book. It was an interesting story and I loved being in the world. Tamsyn is quite young when her and Nathan discover they are mates. So there's a lot of waiting for them but because Nathan is older, he handles it better. And because Nathan saw his own parents get together early, he's cautious about claiming Tamsyn too early. By the ti [...]


    • BEAT OF TEMPTATION is the story of Tammy and Nate. Both have been characters seen throughout the series and are an integral part of the Pack, but they were always on the peripheral. Tammy is just 19 years old while Nate is 29. The large age different plays a part in their relationship because Nate wants to make sure that Tammy gets the freedom she deserves. As the healer of the Pack, she has a lot of responsibilities for such a young age and Nate doesn't want her to feel overwhelmed when the mat [...]


    • One of the most amazing things about this anthology is that all the stories are honestly not diminished because of their length. Nalini had a brief story to tell, not a plotline she shortened for the purpose. I admit I love novellas and short-stories, but they're not the same as actual books. Here I was as emotional involved as I usually am with a full-length novel, and that's something. Of course, already knowing the world and even two of these pairs helps.Another thing I love was the fact that [...]


    • 1st read: 5 March 2013I love reading Nalini Singh's stories, I know she will never disappoint me. So when I started this book it felt like coming home. I met new characters, saw the old ones and had fun reading about heir antiques, got emotional over their pain and adored reading every word. PS: I don't care if I act like a broken record but Nalini really is an amazing writer, one of the very best.2nd read: 8- April 2017


    • This review was originally posted on Addicted To RomanceThis was such a wonderful group of novella's of the Psy Changelings and I was thrilled to pick it up!! Nalini Singh is definitely quite talented, when she can make novella's have depth and fabulous love stories you just want more of. In Beat of Temptation We have Nathan and Tamsyn's story. Ever since I read the first book in the series, I have been aching to read their story. When Nathan and Tamsyn connect as mates, Tammy is only sixteen [...]


    • This one is a must read for 'Psy-Changeling' fans! While the the first two novellas have been featured in previous anthologies, they are both great and I could reread them again and again!The two new novellas are the first that feature Snowdancer wolves in this format and both are great reads too, with Walker and Lara's story being the real showstopper!



    • Wild Invitation is a collection of Psy-changeling series novellas. Nalini Singh has done the same with her Guild Hunter series (Angels' flight), and I think that having gathered all (or most of) the novellas relating to one series in one book rather than having them scattered in many different anthologies is a great and practical idea. The OCD part of me is really pleased by it. The two firsts novellas have DarkRiver heroes (and were already published in other anthologies), the lasts two are rel [...]


    • Nalini Singh never (ok rarely) fails to completely uplift me with her books. I'm reading eleven other books at the moment and they have all hit depressing: political kidnapping, PTSD suicide, endless meaningless war against ninja turtles, endless horrific war against machines, endless war against ancient evil, demonic doppelgänger takeover, unrepentant spousal abandonment, rubber plantation holocaust - even my Hawaii travel guide has turned into a leper story. Come to think of it, i need one mo [...]


    • I will edit this review and add to it as I read the other parts that's included in this anthology.Psy-Changeling #0.5 - Beat of TemptationRead on 7/8-2016 (August 7th)5 stars!!I love me some Tamsyn and Nate. I really loved this short novella. I wish it had been longer though and I really REALLY hope we get to read the parts that weren't in this novella, from the last chapter to the epilogue. That's 18 years we just missed out on. I'd love to read about Tamsyn being pregnant, Nate's reaction to h [...]


    • Wild Invitation is a collection of four novellas set in the Psy-Changeling world featuring some characters we already know and love along with a few we've not come across before. Two of the stories (Declaration of Courtship and Texture of Intimacy) have never been published before while the others were included in multi-author anthologies (Beat of Temptation was in An Enchanted Season and Stroke of Enticement was in The Magical Christmas Cat). These stories are set at different points in the ser [...]


    • 3.5 stars - SpoilersDeclaration of CourtshipI've been curious about Cooper and Grace's romance ever since Cooper was being teased by his lieutenant friends in Tangle of Need (at least I think it was Tangle of Need). I did find myself somewhat letdown by their story but I think that was down to me building up their relationship beforehand as something epic. Grace and Copper were both likeable. I still don't think there's much difference personality wise between a dominant and submissive female. T [...]


    • If you are a fan of the Psy-Changeling series then you don’t want to miss out on these four great novellas.  Beat of Temptation #0.5 - 5 Stars This one takes place several years before Slave to Sensation. Here we see a very young 19-year-old Tamsyn, who became the healer to the cats at a very young age. We see her relationship or lack of one with Nate who’s 29. These two have known since Tam turned 15 that they where mates, but the age difference plays a part in their relationship, because [...]


    • Reread (Aug 17, 2015)This set of short stories are so romantic and just so heart warming to read.Reread (Jul 18, 2014)I can't get enough of this series, and this anthology is perfection. All four short stories are worth more than five star ratings in my opinion and I will definitely reread this multiple times whenever I'm in the mood for something romantic and swoon worthy.Originally read (Apr 19, 2013)I loved Tammy and Nate's story as well as Zach and Annie's.But it was Cooper and Grace's story [...]


    • I'll update this as I go along with the novellas. I plan to read the series chronologically, so it might take a while for me to finish thisAT OF TEMPTATION: 1.5 STARSShe wants to have sex with him. He wants to, but can't, because he feels she's too young and inexperienced. Loads of unnecessary angst. Holy fuck, this was so frustrating. The issue could have been solved by a good, long conversation, for fuck's sake.Tammy: Look, Nate, I'm 19. I'm not a young kid anymore. Maybe we can talk about thi [...]


    • Beat of Temptation / Tentation Charnelle [0.5] : ⭐⭐⭐⭐Contente d'avoir lu l'histoire de Nate et Tammy, c'est suffisamment développé, c'était très bien !Irrésistible Attirance [4.5] : ⭐⭐⭐ (3,5/5)J'ai trouvé ça trop rapide. J'aurai aimé qu'Annie résiste un peu plus.[9.5] : ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐Super ! Là pour le coup j'ai aimé que l'approche soit lente et progressive, on a eu le temps de l'apprécier.[10.5] : ⭐⭐⭐⭐Je ne suis pas une grande fan de Lara, qui surjoue un peu t [...]


    • Phoned in. Really, I know my reaction will not be with the majority, but I really felt that the stories were lacking the typical Nalini Singh magic and that the book as a whole was just a way to milk money from fans. Two stories were previously published, so $7.99 for two short stories is pretty steep.Beat of Temptation (previously pub'd): The story of Nate and Tamsyn. Part of the problem is me. I remember when I first read this short story, I really enjoyed it, but upon rereading, I found Nate [...]


    • Nalini Singh never disappoints. Her writing is lyrical, and the reader instantly connects with her characters. I loved reading the beginning story of Tamsyn and Nate. They've been such central characters from the start. It was terrific seeing their early days, and also getting a further glimpse into the pack's recovery after the death of Lucas's parents. Annie and Zach's story came next, and was perhaps even more enjoyable since they're NOT central characters to the narrative. We see them all th [...]



    • Wild Invitation by Nalini Singh consists of 4 novellas, which takes place in her wonderful Psy/Changeling world. Below is my review on each novella.Beat of Temptation is the story of Tamsyn; healer of Dark River Leopards, and Nathan Ryder, a Dark River Sentinel. This novel was a plethera of different nuances. At times tender, at times romantic, at times frustrating, and more than a little intense with its emotion. This story held a unique mood, in that our two main characters knew for several ye [...]


    • Beat of Temptation:From previously reading the full length stories in the Psy-Changeling series I've always wondered about the origins of Tamsyn and Nate's mating. It's amazing that Beat of Temptation (Wild Invitation) would be the first story told in this series and it's all about them!Beat of Temptation (Wild Invitation) was so perfect. I knew that the love between Tamsyn and Nate was something special but I didn't expect them to encompass the amount of steam that was emanating from Beat of T [...]



    • Separate reviews for the four included NovellasBeat of TemptationAfter reading so many books in this series it is hard to imagine a time when Nate and Tammy weren’t together in every way. But, I liked learning the details of their love story. Nathan always a protector almost protected his mate into seclusion. Nate realized Tammy was his mate when she was still 15 and he was 25. Since then he has stoically waited for her to become older for them to be together. But they seem to disagree on one [...]


    • The Beat of Temptation, Psy-Changeling 0.5 3 starsTamsyn and Nate short. I liked it but it was painful. Painful in that it-will-all-work-out-in-the-end-but-the-journey's-a-bitch kind of way. There was a side-plot that felt like it was being set up as a snatch and rescue, but turned out to be just an illustration of Psy hubris. So that was anti-climactic. Overall it felt like a not very subtle set-up (insight) for future books masquerading as a mini para-romance. Stroke of Enticement, Psy-Changel [...]


    • Beat of Temptation - 2 starsI've always loved Nate and Tamsyn's relationship because it seemed so sane and solid. It was a real disappointment to see all the unnecessary drama at the beginning of it, plus how unbalanced it was. Nate was actually kind of a creep - possessive is good, controlling is not.Stroke of Enticement - 4 starsI loved Annie! She was so sweet! I'm a sucker for stories about teachers finding true love - I guess because I spent most of my time in class pairing up teachers in my [...]


    • I love Nalini Singh, especially her Psy-Changeling series. I have read them all and this collection of short stories was a nice treat. I loved all the stories with the exception of Lara and Walker's story. Nothing against the story itself, I just don't think those two interest me at ALL. In fact, I found their subplot in Kiss of Snow (I think that's the right one) to be a tedious/boring distraction also. Grace/Cooper and Tamsyn/Nate's stories alone made the book worthwhile. A must-read for lover [...]


    • I love this universe. I will visit anyway I can. These novellas are cute, not as strong as the full books but still pretty good.


    • Update: 2015 re-read A gazillion stars!!*****************Beat of Temptation:From the beginning of the Psy-Changeling Series, Nate and Tammy have been that couple that you take for granted, the solid rock of the Pack, those you compare every other couple to because they are THE epitome of a happy healthy family, the ones that make you believe in true love that lasts through the years and can survive anything. I just never imagined a time when they weren't a happy couple. That's why it came as suc [...]
