Publisher's Summary

Wild Invitation is an exciting collection of Psy/Changeling stories from New York Times best-selling author Nalini Singh. In "Beat of Temptation", innocent Tamsyn has always had a place in her heart for Nathan, a blooded DarkRiver sentinel. But is she ready for the fierce demands of the mating bond? In "Stroke of Enticement", a wary young teacher, skeptical about love, arouses the man - and the animal - in an aggressive leopard changeling who must prove his affections are true.

The collection also features two never-before-published novellas: In "Declaration of Courtship", Grace, a shy, submissive wolf, finds herself pursued by the last man she ever would have imagined: a SnowDancer lieutenant said to be "mad, bad, and dangerous to know". In "Texture of Intimacy", SnowDancer healer Lara discovers the searing joys - and unexpected challenges - of being mated to quiet, powerful Walker, a man used to keeping his silence.

    "All Great short stories for Psy-Changling lovers."

    Great short stories to be added to the Psy-changling series. Of course I hope you read the other books first but here is some info on the stories. I added how long each book is because sometimes that factures into what I listen to by how much time I have. Don't want to start something really good right before the weekend starts.

    Beat of Temptation. Nate and Tamsyn's prequel story, I was glad they included this story on audible. They are the foundation couple in all of the other stories. 2h 42m.

    Stroke of Enticement. Annie and Zach story is written after Hostage to Pleasure. I don't think this couple is in any of the other stories, but I may be wrong. 2h 38m.

    Declaration of Courtship. Cooper and Grace's story, read after Tangle of Need. 3h 27m.

    Texture of Intimacy. Warren and Lara's story, got to love these two. Read after Kiss of Snow. 2h 54m.

    "Just AWEsome!"

    Wonderful collection of short stories! Fills in the stories of other characters we have met in the main books. Angela Dawe carries on her fantastic narration.

    A must have for Nalini fans!!!

    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.

    "QUIT READING REVIEWS AND BUY IT ALREADY"

    I love Nalini Singh. I love all her books. And even though this is a collection of small stories in her Psy-changeling series, I love it too. I don't need to tell you what it's about or what I think because I already know you'll love it.

    (Obviously read the other psy-changling books first ;)

    "Pretty decent"


    These were were good stories for the most part. A few of them were a little slower than I'm used to with her, but I still really liked them. The only thing I really have to complain about is that I'm so very, very tired of the phrase "quintessentially (fe)male" because seriously, what does that even mean?

    "Nice Collection for Fans"
    Any additional comments?

    For fans of the Psy-Changeling series, this is a good listen. Four novellas give personal glimpses into the lives of four different couples. The focus, and conflict, remains on the couples and each story only spans a short time. Fans will love it. New comers to the series won't appreciate it as much, and I strongly recommend starting with book 1 and putting this anthology off until you are well into the series.

    "IS THERE ANYTHING NALINI WRITES THAT I WON'T LIKE?"
    What made the experience of listening to Wild Invitation the most enjoyable?

    Anything by Nalini is great, even her short stories. Most of the time short stories feel rushed to me but despite the stories being a lot shorter they still felt complete and well written.


    Any additional comments?

    I love Nalini Singh and read everything she writes. You have got to read her stuff if you like Thea Harrison, J.R. Ward. Christine Feehan, Jeaniene Frost, etc. You get the picture!!

    "AN ENTERTAINING INVITATION TO SHORT SWEET STORIES"

    These are great short stories all done by the talented author Nalini Singh and she is an automatic download with me.

    Lots of romantic stories however there are certain stories I prefer over others but they all have sexy Alpha males on the prowl and tells just how they each eventually capture their mates. The tender sweet romances seem to be pretty much all each of the stories are about with lots of mental or verbal talk about the mating bond and the sexual urges but not very explicit. That and you learn more about how each pack's hierarchy works.

    Worth a credit? Yes, and if you're a paranormal romance lover, then you'll agree.

    Story
    "A WILD Ride!!"
    Would you listen to Wild Invitation again? Why?

    Absolutely. I love Nalini Singh's psy/changeling series and have read every book in the series. The narrator brought the characters alive and made the psy/changeling world very real to the listener. Particularly with this book because it was an anthology that contained 4 separate novellas, the author was able to take each story and make it distinctive and interesting, instead of just one boring monologue. She was able to keep the listener engaged with each story change.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite In this anthology was "Stroke of Enticement", the story of Zach and Annie, followed closely by Texture of Intimacy, the story of Walker and Lara.


    What about Angela Dawe’s performance did you like?

    Ms. Dawes was able to take each story and make it distinctive and interesting. She was able to bring each character's personality alive in each story.


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

    Absolutely!! Just like when I read the book, once I started, I couldn't put it down...or in this case, stop listening.


    Any additional comments?

    I think that it would be beneficial to have dual (male and female) narrators for future stories. It would enhance the characters, thereby enhancing the story, exponentially.

    I like to live vicariously through fictional characters. I enjoy reading and/or listening to mostly paranormal and fantasy.

    "Great Series"

    I really enjoyed these short stories. In this anthology, we get to visit two couples from the series that we are very familiar with (Nate & Tammy along with Walker & Lara). There are also two new couples that we haven't met in previous books. One from Dark River and one from Snow Dancer. I loved all the stories, but I think it was Walker and Lara's that was my favorite. I just love the Laurens. I'm not usually a big fan of the Psy, but this family is great.

    "Awesome addition to this series!"
    What did you love best about Wild Invitation?

    I don't mind brevity as long as I'm still getting a legit story so this set of novellas was an extremely satisfying read. It was great to hear how Tamsin and Nate got together, as well as getting more of Walker and Lara. I found myself wanting to hear more about them than Hawk and Sienna in Kiss of Snow, so I was in heaven getting to focus on them for a few hours.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Walker - even though my own honeypie is the most gregarious person I know I am SUCH a sucker for the strong and silent type. I also love Judd, so yeah. Kaleb too, after Heart of Obsidian, who am I kidding?!


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Angela Dawe?

    I'm not going to go looking for books she narrates, but I'm also not going to pass on a book because she narrated it. Take from that what you will.


    Any additional comments?

    These are GREAT novellas! Even though I missed the bigger plotlines, etc. that you get from the rest of the series, I feel like these are a perfect example of how a solid love story can be developed and executed in a short span of pages. Each one was different, and I enjoyed them all. I was jonesing for more Walker and Lara, so I read these immediately after Kiss of Snow, although technically the stuff in Walker and Lara's story sets that novella after Tangle of Need, but I don't think it really matters.
