In an old used book store, the scent of tattered pages filling the air, I stopped to peak at the paranormal romance section- my guilty pleasure. Row after row of titles greeted me- teasing and intriguing, but which to choose?
I settled on a novel about a psychic who foresees the future and a changeling jaguar. Of course, the official synopsis wasn’t quite so bland, but when vampires and werewolves were all the rage, it was an unexpected gem. I devoured the pages of “Visions of Heat” and to this day Vaughn and Faith are my favorite Psy/Changeling couple, although Vasic and Ivy are a close second.
I knew when I went seeking more in the series, some of which I had to special order, that each book would focus on a separate set of main characters. Normally, this would be very off-putting to me. When I get into a series, it’s because the characters have become real to me and I want to see where they go; I don’t want to see their stories end.
As it turns out, these worries were completely unfounded. Although each book focused on a different hero/heroine, the subplot flowed effortlessly from one book to the next. Nalini Singh brought the world of Psy, Changeling, and Human to life and I just had to know where the war was going.
The Psy/Changeling series will always be my favorite paranormal romance series, but Ms. Singh is truly talented. There are some authors that are hit-and-miss with, but I have yet to read a Nalini Singh book I didn’t thoroughly enjoy.
The Guild Hunter series was one I was nervous about beginning. I already had Nalini Singh up on an author pedestal and I didn’t want to ruin my illusion. Without her name on these books, I don’t know if I ever would have picked them up. But I am so glad I did. Again, the stories were utterly flawless, the characters coming across as real as you or me.
Now, I’m a firm believer that a person is a person, no matter their career choice. An actor, an author, a sports star, a musician, an heir/heiress, whatever… I’ve said this before. However, that being said, I think I might be rendered speechless if I was ever in the presence of this author that I’ve turned into a larger-than-life figure in my mind. Her talent is off-the-charts, and if you’ve never heard of her, I strongly suggest heading to your nearest book store right now and checking her out!
