During February, I read five full-length books and two short stories. There were a couple of so-so reads among them, but overall, most of them were really good, making my decision as to which book would be named my Book of the Month a little harder this time. Ultimately the one that came out on top is a paranormal romance by a favorite author that’s part of a favorite series of mine. This one follows SnowDancer wolves Indigo and Drew. Indigo is a dominant female and a pack lieutenant, while Drew is the pack’s tracker. Drew has been crazy about Indigo for a while, but she’s been trying to keep their relationship friends-only. She worries that getting involved with a male who is both younger and less dominant could lead to disaster. But tired of waiting for her to come around, Drew pulls out all the stops to prove to Indigo that she’s the only wolf for him. Meanwhile, the threat from Pure Psy, the Psy faction that’s determined to maintain Silence no matter the cost, is rising, and Indigo and Drew discover evidence of a Psy incursion onto SnowDancer land. With the help of their alpha, Hawke, and the rest of the pack, they must figure out what the Psy’s new game is and stop it before serious damage is done, but a climactic battle with the Psy could put Indigo and Drew’s relationship in jeopardy before she’s even had a chance to decide whether he’s her perfect mate after all.
Indigo is a strong female whose love of her pack is admirable. She places a lot of responsibility on her own shoulders for making sure the pack is a healthy, functioning group. She knows that if she’s unhappy in her mating that could lead to disunity in the pack. She may have her doubts about Drew but bravely gives him a chance, gradually opening up and tearing down her walls for him. Drew has earned a spot as my favorite hero of the series so far. He may have a dominant side, but he’s also a real sweetheart, who totally wears his heart on his sleeve for Indigo. I love a hero in pursuit and Drew definitely pulls out all the stops in his pursuit of Indigo, holding nothing back. His courtship of her is swoon-worthy romance at its finest. It certainly didn’t hurt that there were plenty of smokin’ hot love scenes, too.;-) With Pure Psy ramping up their efforts, the events of this book were also a nice addition to the greater story arc. Overall, it was an awesome read and my favorite of the series so far. That’s why I’m naming Nalini Singh’s Play of Passion as my February Book of the Month. If you enjoy paranormal romance with a strong, dominant heroine, a hero to die for, lots of sizzling, swoony romance, and a touch of intrigue, then you should definitely give this book a try. Keep reading to learn how you can win a copy for your own library.
Passion and reason collide with explosive force in the newest instalment of Nalini Singh’s “mesmerizing” Psy/Changeling series. As a conflict with Pure Psy looms on the horizon, two powerful wolves fight a far more intimate war of their own.
Lieutenant Indigo Riviere doesn't easily allow skin privileges, especially of the sensual kind—and the last person she expects to find herself craving is the most wickedly playful male in the den. Everything she knows tells her to pull back before the flames burn them both to ash . . . but she hasn't counted on Drew's will.
Now, two of SnowDancer's most stubborn wolves find themselves playing a hot, sexy game even as lethal danger stalks the very place they call home.
