Publisher's Summary

Separated from her son and forced to create a neural implant that will mean the effective enslavement of her psychically gifted race, Ashaya Aleine is the perfect Psy: cool, calm, emotionless... at least on the surface. Inside, she’s fighting a desperate battle to save her son and escape the vicious cold of the PsyNet. Yet when escape comes, it leads not to safety but to the lethal danger of a sniper’s embrace.

DarkRiver sniper Dorian Christensen lost his sister to a Psy killer. Though he lacks the changeling ability to shift into animal form, his leopard lives within. And that leopard’s rage at the brutal loss is a clawing darkness that hungers for vengeance. Falling for a Psy has never been on Dorian’s agenda. But charged with protecting Ashaya and her son, he discovers that passion has a way of changing the rules.

Mind over matter: listen to more in the Psy-Changeling series.

What the Critics Say

"One of the greatest pleasures of these books is their ability to deliver both an intensely personal love story as well as a riveting societal drama. Singh is on the fast track to becoming a genre giant!" (Romantic Times)

    Story
    "Great story. Flat monotone narrator."
    What made the experience of listening to Hostage to Pleasure the most enjoyable?

    The written story was much better than the audio edition. My listening experience was not nearly as enjoyable as reading the book. Angela Dawe is quite awful.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The whole IAD world. Kresley Cole knows both character and world-building.


    How could the performance have been better?

    A talented, more experienced narrator should have been selected, preferable a man. Angela Dawe reads in a monotone, flat voice. Compared to Robert Petkoff who read A Hunger Like No Other, she reads like a sixth grader.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Many laughs, and several crying jags. A wonderful addition to the series.


    Any additional comments?

    Another great addition to the Psy-Changling series. But putting up with monotone narrator Angela Dawe is just about more than I can bear. There are some great narrators out there, and I wish the publisher/author would have engaged an effective narrator.

    "Entertaining, Great Story, Awesome Narrator"

    I loved listening to this story, it came together so perfectly. So far my favorite of the series. The narrator does a great job bringing the characters to life. I couldn't stop listening. I really enjoy that this series has the same narrator for all of the books and that characters from previous books are brought back into each book.
