One more Kiss

Here's a paragraph from Kiss of Snow that I thought you might enjoy. Sienna and Hawke are in a vehicle and let's just say someone's living a little dangerously. ;-)

Excerpt from Kiss of Snow

[Sienna] “Do you like my top?”

“Is that what it is?”

“Latest style,” she assured him, ignoring the silky menace of his response. “Laces up the side, so it’s easier to take off.”

His hands clenched on the steering wheel as he headed up into the mountains.

“And the boots.” She lifted one leg up to the dash, stroked her hand over her thigh. “They make me—”

The car shuddered to a halt near the perimeter of den territory.

Review Goodness

I'm super excited to share that Kiss of Snow has received a starred review from Booklist, a Top Pick GOLD review from RT, and an awesome Publishers Weekly review!! Woohoo!!

Here's a quote from the RT review: "For this amazing novel, plot seeds that were planted much earlier add significant punch to an unforgettable tale that is rich with complex, vivid emotions and edge-of-your-seat danger." 

And from the Publishers Weekly review: " who have been longing for this story will not be disappointed."
Only 38 days to go!!

Slave to Sensation Audiobook and Copy Edits

The audiobook for Slave to Sensation is out April 25th, but AAR is giving away 10 copies at the moment. If you follow the link, you can also read a great interview with an audiobook narrator.

I'm going over the copy edited manuscript of Archangel's Blade at the moment, so I'm going to be a bit scarce for the next few days. Talk amongst yourselves! (Maybe about what books you're looking forward to releasing in the coming months?)

Email & Music

A quick note to let you all know I'm just a wee bit *coughamonthcough* behind in my emails at the moment. I'll definitely get to them all, but if you have a time sensitive question/request, please shoot it through to my assistant: naliniDOTassistantATgmailDOTcom.

And did I hear a request for more Bollywood? Here you go! This is from a movie called Mohabbatein. The title translates as Love Stories. The setting is in and around a prestigious boys college.

Time to talk books! What are you reading and loving this week?

I want to mention a couple of new releases that I read as advanced copies and really enjoyed. 

 Lauren Dane's Mesmerized is an awesome futuristic, part of her Phantom Corps series. I read it not realizing it was part of a series, and had no problem following along - it definitely stands alone. I'm looking forward to diving into more of the Phantom Corps books. Link to backcover blurb and excerpt.
Maya Banks Sweet Possession is a wonderful hot contemporary that's part of her fantastic Sweet series, but like Lauren's book, it stands alone very well I think. Link to backcover blurb and excerpt.

Now, your turn!

Cordelia's Honor - Lois McMaster Bujold

I've just read Cordelia's Honor and discovered the Miles Vorkosigan series by Lois McMaster Bujold. All I can say is - what took me so long?! 

While very much science fiction, Cordelia's Honor also has a strong and compelling romantic thread between two fantastic protagonists. I utterly loved this book (which is actually an omnibus that contains two novels - Shards of Honor and Barrayar) and can't wait to read the rest of the series.  
If you'd like to read a detailed review, there's a wonderful one over at Dear Author.

The question of course is whether I glom the series in one big bite, or whether I spread out the books so they last. What would you do?

Archangel's Blade Cover!!

Check it out!! I can't wait for Dmitri's story to be released!

September 2011
Berkley Sensation

New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh is back in the shadows of a deadly, beautiful world where angels rule, vampires serve, and one female hunter must crawl out of the darkness to survive…

The severed head marked by a distinctive tattoo on its cheek should have been a Guild case, but dark instincts honed over hundreds of years of life compel the vampire Dmitri to take control. There is something twisted about this death, something that whispers of centuries long past…but Dmitri’s need to discover the truth is nothing to the vicious strength of his response to the hunter assigned to decipher the tattoo.

Savaged in a brutal attack that almost killed her, Honor is nowhere near ready to come face to face with the seductive vampire who is an archangel’s right hand, and who wears his cruelty as boldly as his lethal sensuality…the same vampire who has been her secret obsession since the day she was old enough to understand the inexplicable, violent emotions he aroused in her.

As desire turns into a dangerous compulsion that might destroy them both, it becomes clear the past will not stay buried. Something is hunting…and it will not stop until it brings a blood-soaked nightmare to life once more…
