Since the moment of her defection from the PsyNet and into the SnowDancer wolf pack, Sienna Lauren has had one weakness. Hawke. Alpha and dangerous, he compels her to madness.
Hawke is used to walking alone, having lost the woman who would've been his mate long ago. But Sienna fascinates the primal heart of him, even as he tells himself she is far too young to handle the wild fury of the wolf.
Then Sienna changes the rules-and suddenly, there is no more distance, only the most intimate of battles between two people who were never meant to meet. Yet as they strip away each other's secrets in a storm of raw emotion, they must also ready themselves for a far more vicious fight...
A deadly enemy is out to destroy SnowDancer, striking at everything they hold dear, but it is Sienna's darkest secret that may yet savage the pack that is her home-and the alpha who is its heartbeat.
Nalini Singh has a knack for creating a fiction world with substance. The setting, situations and characters alike are easy to visualize and absolutely addicting to read.
I skipped ahead to read Hawke and Sienna's story in this installment of Kiss of Snow and I am glad I did..... I absolutely loved it! Hawke is a shifter and has been an Alpha since his young teen years. After his pack experienced a devastating blow by the Psys, Hawke was the one leading the Pack to pick up the pieces and restrengthen themselves. Hawke possesses a dominating alpha personality with his inner beast close to the surface but it's apart of his character and Nalini does a dynamite job with writing him.
In this Psy-Changeling world, Shifters mate for life but what happens when Hawke's would-be mate died when they were kids? Good question because Sienna would like to know that as well.
Sienna is a young woman who grew up in the Psy Net. She is the most dangerous person walking the earth, a human explosive with no idea how to contain her power. Sienna even scares herself. So none other than Hawke is really equipped to take on Sienna but it's not just the danger that he needs to face but the attraction brewing between the two. Sienna's character is written perfectly. She possesses strength needed to stand next to an Alpha and due to her special treatment/training in the Psy Net, she is mature in mental, physical and tactical matters. With romance brewing and war on the horizon Hawke and Sienna are the perfect couple.
