A changeling who can never shift lives a life of quiet frustration—until he learns how to let his leopard come out and play...

What a awesome treat Dorian (Wild Embrace) was!!! I can’t believe that Nalini Singh chose to write this continuation to a story of one of the most dynamic and unique characters out of her Psy-Changeling series!

Dorian (Wild Embrace) gave all the ends and outs that I craved to know about Dorian, both when he learned about his latency and how he learned to cope with it while rising through the ranks of the Dark River pack. At first when I began reading I thought that we were just going to get past snapshots of Dorian’s life and while I was fine with that there would’ve been some disappointment if that was all that we got. I’ve was itching to know what happened after Dorian’s big reveal in Hostage to Pleasure so for the fact that Singh didn’t leave us waiting for long to find out the aftermath of its ending both makes me love her writing more and has cemented my trust in her as an author – she seems to know her reader base so well it’s almost scary.

When Dorian (Wild Embrace) went on from just showing the aftermath of the ending to Hostage to Pleasure to showing the pack’s reaction to Dorian’s good news left my heart feeling so full. Dorian’s character, and especially those closet to him, have really been through the ringer and to have some good news, especially this good news, drives home the sense of family and uniqueness that this series seems to have that I have yet to find anywhere else.

Dorian (Wild Embrace) was so sweet and much needed for those who loved Dorian and Shaya’s story.

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.

  • I love Dorian’s story too. He is one of my favorite Changeling characters. I love how Singh did this short story too. You make me want to revisit it. (I might just do that before my next audiobook) 🙂

    • Haha, I’m such an enabler lol. Heh but this is just payback for all the stories you had me adding to my TBR lol.
