    I love listening to audio books because I have little time to read. Faves are paranormal/sci-fi, with romance & inspirational thrown in.

    "Book Two of a New Series!"

    After being an Audible subscriber for more than 2 yrs, I have lots of audio books in my library. 586 to be specific. I've listened to more than 500 and I've gotten really picky about buying a series. Well, this series is definitely a keeper. The characters are strong and the erotic scenes are not as graphic as some authors. I purchased this book on sale but it hooked me enough that I bought book number one (and several others). I have not been disappointed.

    I'm a grad student with very little time to edit reviews because I'm editing research papers. Forgive the typos. They're made with love.

    "Things are heating up."
    What did you love best about Visions of Heat?

    It's a nice follow up to the first book in the series and gives you a better handle on the world built by Singh.


    What other book might you compare Visions of Heat to and why?

    This book involves changelings, which are like weres and shifters, and a race of mental-powered people called psy. So if you haven't experienced a book like this, this series is a great one to start with. However, begin with the first book - this stands along, sort of, but it's not as good that way.


    Which character – as performed by Angela Dawe – was your favorite?

    Angela Dawe has a great ability to sound somewhat robotic as a human, and while that has others complaining on different novels, it's perfect for this series. She does male voices rather well too.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Faith is one of the more delicate psy you will come across and Vaughn is a rather large jaguar with a serious dominant streak. Watching these opposites play against each other was fun.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed this book but rated it compared to the others in the series - you can definitely see Singh grow as a writer, so this novel isn't as strong as others, but it's still a great story which will lead you to the amazing book 3.

    "Solid Second Book"

    The plot of the book was very similar to the first book with regards to the two main characters. There were enough differences to keep it interesting and there was a lot more information given about the psy world. I really liked the way this book fleshed out the world of the psy and the changelings. The two main characters were likable and the differences in them from the couple in the first book were intersting. The knowledge gained in what is going on in this world in general and how it works was really fascinating and the world itself is very layered. The narrator did a good job, though I wouldn't say she's one of my favorites.

    "Remember The Matrix?"

    It's like a version of The Matrix with more sex and more explanations. Brilliant.
    I totally enjoyed getting more background on the Psy world.
    Plus, the love story is unique and surprisingly engaging as well.

    "Still good!"

    This is book 2....while I would have preferred more hot scenes the chemistry was scorching! This series is worth getting into, imagine a world populated by humans, changelings (think shifters), and the Psy....an emotionless species that is gifted mentally with things from predictions to telekinesis, to being capable of crippling an opponent with their minds....in order to eliminate violence from their lives they have purposely removed emotions from themselves through training from birth....but the system is flawed!

    I look at it this way...there are 11 books and all have a rating above 4. If its your kind of thing go ahead and start the series!

    "Predictable"

    Overall good story though very similar to the first installment. Faith is a foreseer Psy as opposed to Sascha's empath nature. Foreseers are rare & very valuable to the Psy community as one might expect. She seems to specialize in predicting investments which makes her especially sought after. Vaughn, a jaguar changeling, is enamored with her from the start and she eventually relents. Vaughn & Faith's experience is very much like that of Lucas & Sascha.

    Angela Dawe's narration was good.

    "Interesting story boring narrator"

    Yes, I do believe if you read the book, you'll love it. Listening does not give it justice. The narrator portrays all the woman and men the same. It takes a lot of talent for a story teller to get the male and female voices straight, and this one absolutely does not. I have to backtrack to understand which woman is speaking. And all the males sound the same. I understand that the population of Psi is supposed to have absolutely no feeling but the monotone interpretation seems to run through the story. The narrator is just ok.

    I wonder if the other reviews came from the Amazon website because I noticed it kept saying "good read". And this book is probably a good read but it's absolutely a boring listen.

    I always enjoy Nalini Singh. This story was pretty easy flowing. Also, narration on this book was matched really well with the characters.

    "Great!!!"

    I just started listening to Ms. Singh and WOW! I am impressed. I always get leery when I try a new author, but she is awesome. Just downloaded the Guild Hunter Series, can't wait to read!

    "Satisfying"

    I tore through the first book in this series but I savored this one a bit more. Listening to the audio as I did other work, I tried to force myself to take it slower but it was hard.

    The narrator in this on adds to the story. Her voice feels like it's a part of it all. For me, a narrator can make or break a story. This one made it better.

    Faith draws the changeling jaguar Vaughn even before she meets him. The cat's not sure why he's so interested in the secluded and heavily guarded compound but he watches and when a beautiful redhead psy sneaks out he pounces.

    These two are almost complete opposites. Vaughn feels deeply and is driven by instinct and a powerful body. Faith is a rare and valuable F-Psy who relies on her mind but can't handle the sensation of touch. As Vaughn follows his instincts and Faith puzzles things out with her mind, these two grow close.

    And the sexy? Yeah, there's a lot of that. Vaughn is driven by touch. He teaches Faith about it slowly and it ruptures into some pretty hot moments between these two.

    I love this world. So much depth. The mix of humans, changelings and psy make the dynamics complex and dynamic. The two extremes of instinct driven and unfeeling with the human in the middle sets up lots of parallel situation to today's world. I enjoy that.

    I love all the characters. It was great seeing Sascha and Lucas, who were the focus of book one, again. There are so many great secondary characters that will step up to have their own story. The author gives us bits and pieces that get me excited to read them. I look forward to Hawke, the leader of the wolves. Dorian's story is going to be great too. This was the first time I noticed Judd much and I'm a bit nervous but intrigued to read his story.

    Took long enough to find this series but I'm onboard and excited to plow through so many books that I'm sure I will love. The hunger for good paranormal is strong and this is one satisfying series.

    If you haven't started this series and you love paranormal with a heavy side of romance, then this series is the one for you.
