"Slave to Sensation" Will have you Begging for More!

Synopis from B&

Nalini Singh dives into a world torn apart by a powerful race with phenomenal powers of the mind-and none of the heart.
Born a Psy, Sascha Duncan must hide the emotions which mark her as flawed. But a passionate Changeling will tempt her to reveal everything-and risk her very soul.

Though the short summary may make Slave to Sensation sound like a cheesy futuristic romance at first glance, I assure you it is anything but! Nalini writes a great story, showing a fresh new view in paranormal romance. Set in the future, her world is full of psy's and shapeshifters, changelings as they are called, and forbidden love, forbidden sensations, turned into true love with a hot, wild side.

I love when my romance novels have a sexy alpha male as the hero-- who doesn't, right? Well, Slave to Sensation delivers, giving us not only the hero, but also some of the other males in the Packs, who will, of course, have their own books later on. The men in the Packs are perfect combinations of wild and tender, sexy and funny. Oh, and did I mention that they are more than just a human man? Yeah, they can change into wolves and panthers and jaguars. Sounds like the perfect man, right ladies? Believe me, before the end of Slave of Sensation, you will be in love (or at least lust) with Lucas and his Pack members-- maybe even some of the Wolves, too.

The story had everything-- love, laughs, thrills, erotic moments and tender ones. And don't forget the cute little cubs. Yes, that's right, when their babies are first born, they usually start to take on the form of their animal side from the very start, and are able to switch back and forth around their first year. I fell in love with the twin cubs during the first scene that they came into, and I'm sure you will too.

Lucas is both rugged and dangerous yet tender and sweet. He's protective, he's demanding, he's Alpha of the Pack, and now Alpha of Sascha's heart. But don't go thinking that just becuase the males are so pushy that automatically makes them the alpha in the mating. No, their mates are just as strong willed, just as commanding, and they have their men wrapped around their fingers, but not in a bad way. They both give and take, command and listen, and add to that the fact that they share a special connection, a deep connection, *both in bed and out! ;-)* and you have a great relationship. Just reading their story makes you feel like you've walked in on an intimate moment between two people who are deeply in love. And in a way, you are. It's sweet and sexy, wild but sometimes tame. It's a perfect combination of everything!

5/5 STARS! If you love a great paranormal romance book that has fire and passion, lust and love, laughs and thrills, then Nalini's Psy-Changelings Series is perfect for you! Definitely a must read for fans of other Paranormal Romance Queens like Christine Feehan, Emma Holly, Angela Knight, and Lora Leigh. If her other 4 books are just as sexy and wonderful as Slave to Sensation, then I am sure I'm going to devour them just as quickly and as I did this one. A fresh new voice in paranormal romance, one that you should definitely keep your eye on!
