Seven years ago, Kenji broke Garnet’s heart. Now the wolf packmates have to investigate the shocking murder of one of their own. And the more Kenji sees of the woman Garnet has become, the deeper he begins to fall once more. But even his primal instincts are no match for the dark secret he carries...

Besides the lieutenants and soldiers in Snow Dancer that were mentioned in Kiss of Snow and Tangle of Need, not much has been said about the others, well…other than Cooper. But with the small glimpses we were able to get it was made known that Kenji and Garnet has some issues that needed to be worked out so it was great that in Flirtation of Fate (Wild Embrace) we are able to finally get their story.

I loved that Nalini Singh made Flirtation of Fate (Wild Embrace) feel more like a romantic suspense than a paranormal romance story, although the paranormal elements are surely there because both Kenji and Garnet are changelings after all.

Even though Flirtation of Fate (Wild Embrace) was a novella, it read more like a full length novel which was an unexpected treat because we were able to get a feel for each of Kenji and Garnet’s characters and the struggles they would each fight to overcome to receive their HEA.

Furthermore, I loved the sense of family that we got from both Kenji and Garnet’s background, their intertwined conflicts and insecurities, as well as the bundle of joy that made their debut at the end of Flirtation of Fate (Wild Embrace).

About Nalini Singh

I was born in Fiji and raised in New Zealand. I also spent three years living and working in Japan, during which time I took the chance to travel around Asia. I’m back in New Zealand now, but I’m always plotting new trips. If you’d like to see some of my travel snapshots, have a look at the Travel Diary page (updated frequently).

So far, I’ve worked as a lawyer, a librarian, a candy factory general hand, a bank temp and an English teacher and not necessarily in that order. Some might call that inconsistency but I call it grist for the writer’s mill.

I’ve been writing as long as I can remember and all of my stories always held a thread of romance (even when I was writing about a prince who could shoot lasers out of his eyes). I love creating unique characters, love giving them happy endings and I even love the voices in my head. There’s no other job I would rather be doing. In September 2002, when I got the call that Silhouette Desire wanted to buy my first book, Desert Warrior, it was a dream come true. I hope to continue living the dream until I keel over of old age on my keyboard.
