THE FIRST PSY/CHANGELING NOVEL from the New York Times bestselling author of Shards of Hope, Shield of Winter, and Heart of Obsidian...The book that Christine Feehan called "a must-read for all of my fans."In a world that denies emotions, where the ruling Psy punish any sign of desire, Sascha Duncan must conceal the feelings that brand her as flawed. To reveal them would be to sentence herself to the horror of “rehabilitation”—the complete psychic erasure of everything she ever was…Both human and animal, Lucas Hunter is a Changeling hungry for the very sensations the Psy disdain. After centuries of uneasy coexistence, these two races are now on the verge of war over the brutal murders of several Changeling women. Lucas is determined to find the Psy killer who butchered his packmate, and Sascha is his ticket into their closely guarded society. But he soon discovers that this ice-cold Psy is very capable of passion—and that the animal in him is fascinated by her. Caught between their conflicting worlds, Lucas and Sascha must remain bound to their identities—or sacrifice everything for a taste of darkest temptation…

my thoughts

Imagine my surprise when I realized that while I’d read Slave to Sensation a few years back, I hadn’t reviewed it yet. What a shame because the book is like Magic so when I realized that Slave to Sensation got a new look via a brand new cover design, I thought it the perfect time to re-read an oldie but a goodie and share my thoughts. Read through number 2 did not disappoint. There is just something about a Singh book that captures the readers attention so fiercely and doesn’t let go. I knew where the story was going from the get go but I still couldn’t stop turning the pages. Sascha Duncan and Lucas Hunter are our couple of interest in the first Psy-Changling installment. Sascha is Psy but she is flawed, unable to be truly silent as she is expected to be and she fears that if her secret comes out, if her race realizes that her silence isn’t as perfect as she leads on, that she’ll be sent to rehabilitation and lose the very core of who she is. When she’s placed in the middle of a joint Psy-Changling business venture, her entire world opens up to new and terrifying possibilities.

She comes face to face with the Leopard Alpha, Lucas Hunter and the two of them work hand in hand to find a serial killer who is targeting Changling women. The two create a dynamic and sensual pair. The sexual tension between the two is tantalizing and you cant help but eagerly anticipate where their relationship will go. It was exciting to watch their relationship unfold once more and to experience the twists and turns that Nalini so expertly places throughout the story. If you haven’t read the Psy-Changling series yet, you absolutely must. Slave to Sensation is an exciting adventure filled with the perfect amount of sexual steam to keep you craving more.4 half coffee cups
