The “alpha author of paranormal romance”* presents a stunningly sensual collection of four all-new Psy-Changeling novellas, in which taboos are broken, boundaries are crossed, and instincts prove irresistible…

Echo of Silence 
In a deep-sea station, Tazia Nerif has found her life’s work as an engineer, keeping things running smoothly. But she wants nothing more than to break down the barrier of silence between her and her telekinetic Psy station commander…

A changeling who can never shift lives a life of quiet frustration—until he learns how to let his leopard come out and play…

Partners in Persuasion 
Still raw from being burned by a dominant female, wolf changeling Felix will never again risk being a plaything. But for dominant leopard Dezi, he’s the most fascinating man she’s ever met. She just has to convince this gun-shy wolf that he can trust the dangerous cat who wants to take a slow, sexy bite out of him…

Flirtation of Fate 
Seven years ago, Kenji broke Garnet’s heart. Now the wolf packmates have to investigate the shocking murder of one of their own. And the more Kenji sees of the woman Garnet has become, the deeper he begins to fall once more. But even his primal instincts are no match for the dark secret he carries…


This collection of short stories was kind of intense. Unlike Wild Invitation, every story in this collection had a slightly twistier and more emotionally potent tale. Except for the first short story, Echo of Silence, the tales all connected intimately into the characters that I have fallen in love with in the Psy-Changeling world. Again and again I am flummoxed by Singh’s ability to make me connect so deeply with a new character every time I break the spine of one of her stories.

Although it’s not necessary to read Wild Embrace alongside the main Psy-Changeling novels, I would recommend the attempt. They just add a little more to the tale and let you know what is happening to some of the secondary characters between the epic battwlles that are beginning to characterise this hard-hitting series.
