Echo of Silence
Due to the complex world building and continuing storylines, it is recommended to read this series in order. However, regarding the romance between Tazia and Stefan, this story does stand on its own.
Tazia Nerif had chosen a career on the deep sea station Alaris that challenged her mind, but her heart was repeatedly broken. She never intentionally shared her feelings with anyone. Not her co-workers who had become good friends, and definitely not the station commander, Stefan Berg, an emotionless Psy who always seemed to see her at her worse.
When the two of them arrived for shore leave at the same time, Tazia had no intention of spending any time with the man. Not that she had any plans. Whereas her friends had friends and family awaiting them, she had no one. But Stefan offered her another choice. An opportunity to help a community during the aftermath of an earthquake. This was not typical work for a TK, but Tazia quickly learned that Stefan was not a typical Psy.
Echo of Silence is a poignant tale of a heart broken heroine and a hero whose silence she breaks. Stefan may not understand emotions and human reactions, but he knows Tazia. He has watched her and makes choices with her in mind. Tazia doesn't initially realize that she isn't alone in being broken, but as she spends time with Stefan, she realizes how much he hides from the world - but never from her. In Echo of Silence readers finally have the story behind Stefan of Alaris, and his manual.
Due to the complex world building and continuing storylines, it is recommended to read this series in order. Also, this is a follow-up to Dorian and Ashaya's story from Hostage to Pleasure and contains major spoilers, so it is suggested to at least read that story before this.
Dorian couldn't shift. No matter how hard he tried. Others sometimes made fun of him, and it hurt, but not as much as not shifting. But he was a dominant, and he knew he could still hold a high position in the pack.
Years passed. He worked hard, became a sniper. He had close friends, and found his mate.
Dorian is a fun glimpse at Dorian and other packmates at different points in his past. Plus, there is a key introduction from a few years past that I truly loved to see. However, the final scenes are what make this story truly magical. I never expected Ms Singh to give us these snippets from Dorian's history, but I am so glad that she did.
Partners in Persuasion
Due to the complex world building and continuing storylines, it is recommended to read this series in order. Although there are some spoilers to multiple previous stories, Partners in Persuasion could be read alone.
Felix knew a relationship between him and Dezi would not work. He was submissive, she was dominant. He had first-hand experience in that disaster. The fact that she was leopard while he was wolf wasn't as big an issue as it once might have been, especially now that another couple had already mated. But Felix wasn't ready to be eviscerated once again. If only he could keep himself from wanting to hurt Dezi's feelings.
Dezi wanted every piece of Felix from the moment she saw him. She'd never really considered a relationship with a submissive, but she knew there was more to Felix than just his status in the hierarchy. He had an almost magical touch when it came to plants, and had earned the respect of members from both of their packs. He had a toughness of spirit which had allowed him to recognize and overcome personal challenges.
Felix and Dezi couldn't deny the attraction between them, but it was only if they could focus on their similarities and not their differences that they could have any chance of a future together.
Partners in Persuasion is a tender, sexy romp certain to captivate readers. Felix is such a sweet hero, dedicated to his work, his family, and his pack. Dezi is used to going after what she wants, and she wants Felix. But she is hesitant, unwilling to use her position to ever take Felix's decisions from him. Such is the delicate line a submissive and dominant pair of shifters face, in any type of relationship. Watching the two slowly work together to find their HEA was a pleasure.
Flirtation of Fate
Due to the complex world building and continuing storylines, it is recommended to read this series in order. However, this story can be read on its own.
Kenji Tanaka loved Garnet Sheridan. She didn't know, and he couldn't tell her. In fact, he'd made it a point that they wouldn't be together. But she wasn't in a relationship with anyone else, so he could talk to her. Volley verbal jabs with her. Wallow in a little bit of what could have been.
Garnet would never forget the pain Kenji had caused, could still cause. But he was a packmate, someone she trusted when there was a murder investigation, someone she knew she could rely on to work with her. What she couldn't understand was why he seemed so perfect, when he had proven to be heartbreak.
Suddenly, it was so obvious. Kenji was hiding something. Something from the pack, something from her. And Garnet was a woman equally determined to find out once and for all Kenji's secrets.
Flirtation of Fate was a romance, a mystery, a story of healing, and a passionate reunion. Kenji has a habit of showing one face to the world, while keeping his hurts hidden. Garnet had allowed Kenji to push her away, but is now realizing that there was no way her friend would ever have intentionally hurt her so badly. I adored finally seeing these two reunite, and enjoyed watching as Kenji tried to evade Garnet, not at all successfully. After all, Garnet was on the hunt for the man who was always hers, and Kenji's heart wasn't into running from the one who was his other half. Funny, flirty, and sexy, Flirtation of Fate will satisfy Kenji and Garnet fans.
