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)

    "Best new series on Audible!"

    Dorian and Ashaya were a perfect match in every way! If you're looking for a great paranormal romance series, look no further! This series has the perfect balance of a created paranormal world with the right amount romance (and steamy scenes).

    I enjoy reading series and very rarely read stand alone series. I mostly read romance and sci-fi & fantasy.

    Story
    "Pleasantly surprised"
    What was one of the most memorable moments of Hostage to Pleasure?

    When Ashaya went to her son's aid. It proved to everyone who had doubted her that she did in deed love her son and would do anything for him.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Ashaya cut her link to the psy-net and accepted the matting bond. She had complete trust in her mate to catch her and she would do anything to keep him by her side.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes and that is what I did do. It was one of those books that had me hooked form the moment I started. I couldn't put it down.

    Any additional comments?

    Great series!!!! This is my favorite series. Each book builds on the overall world while keeping you interested in the individual romances. A few of the book were about secondary characters that I didn’t care about at the beginning and absolutely loved by the end. This review applies to the first 9 books in the series.

    I'm a grad student with very little time to edit reviews because I'm editing research papers. Audible helps me with my book addiction.

    "Formula writing but yummy."

    Alright so this book is yummy. Hot alpha-type Dorian (let's face it, if you've made it this far, all the guys are alphas) goes after Ashaya, and you know from the moment you hear "This is Audible" that these two are going to hook up at some point mid-book. This series is formulaic, yes, but that's the point, right? Would you rather her stop at one or two books? When you say "I want more of that!" then this is what you get. Some of the same things.

    Yet I will say this for Singh - overall her books do progress with a major storyline that stretches all the way to book 11 and beyond. If anything, stick with it to the next book because Book 6 is my second favorite (to book 3).
