    I prefer 3rd person point-of-view, and books with fewer than 500 pages.

    Story
    "A fun little freebie from the author / publisher"

    A short story set at Dorian's home. Ashaya is baking Christmas goodies with Keenan and Dorian when visitors come calling. Holiday merriment ensues. No real plot and nothing very meaningful is said, but nonetheless the camaraderie is delightful, as always.

    Thank you for the gift!

    (Admittedly, I opened it long before Christmas.)

    "A peek inside Dorian/ Ashaya house."

    A nice 20 minute teaser to get me in the mood for more from the Psy-Changling world that is coming out next week. Thanks audible for the freebie.

    Any additional comments?

    This short 19 minute novella was a quick update on Dorian, Clay and their families in Dorian's Kitchen. It was a giggle worthy and fun.The book was free at the time of purchase. I found the narration was a little fast and if I was on my phone I could have slowed it down, but that is the reason I gave the narrator a 4 instead of a 5. I'll keep this for the next time I listen to the series.

    Story
    "Christmas Fun with a Leopard"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I love these little shorts from Nalini Singh that gives us a view into every day life of our favorite Psy-Changling characters. Christmas in the Kitchen did not disappoint. Dorian and Shaya are two of my favorites and this story was fun and sweet. Angela Dawe was a great narrator that brought the story to life.

    Story
    "Heartwarming Holiday Vignette"

    A fun follow-up vignette with Dorian, Keenan, and Ashayla enjoying family time in their kitchen baking for Christmas with visits from others in the pack. It was a sweet and fun family moment in the midst of all the excitement in the psy-changling world.

    This one fits in right after Blaze of Memory.

    I experienced it in audio format (the audio is free) and I enjoyed Angela Dawe's narration work doing all the voices and keeping the whimsical tone of the story.

    "fun slice of life incident"

    Nalini Singh gifts her series readers with these fun little slice of life incidents. Read the story in newsletter and/or on Singh web site and enjoyed hearing audio.
    Interesting to see characters in everyday situations away from the stresses of intrigues and battles. Helps give more depth to the characters and the worlds they live in whether it be Psy-Changeling world or world of the Guild Hunter and her Archangel. Reminder that everyday life goes on. Cooking, cleaning, going to the grocery store, etc. are fun to read about in these short gifts and help connect the characters between novels.

    "What?"

    What did I just listen to? Why would anyone take the time to write something like this? This is utter nonsense.

    I write romantic suspense with a little southern grit. I love romance & adventure w/a little mystery & suspense. I believe in happy endings.

    "What a Great Taste of Christmas (and a new author)"

    Short stories are great ways to meet new authors. Like online dating, you meet for coffee to see if they're a good choice. While paranormals aren't my go-to genre, a good story is a good story. Listening to this short Christmas tale brought me into a new world and presented me with new friends. I look forward to reading more by Nalini Singh.

    Reading takes me places I could never go on my own, and through experiences I would not be able to have on my own.

    "Not the best"

    It is a good story however the reader did not make the story enjoyable. She was reading too quickly. She didn't add character to the story,she detracted from the story.

    "Awful narration"

    The story's alright - not fantastic, not terrible - but the narration is truly awful. I had to turn the volume up to be able to hear the dialogue which is recorded at much loerr level than the almost shouty main narration. The narrator rrads too fsst and her intonation feels rrally unnatural. Ruined the story for me

    "Lots of characters"

    First Psi book I've heard although I have read them all non have been available in the UK on Audible. I loved it although only a short book and free (thank you) this was an excellent book to start with. The narrator was fabulous so many different voices as it was filled with so many of the characters and she was great really brought the story to life. I would buy the entire series if it was available.

    "Interesting, but not what I was expecting"

    I don't remember why I downloaded this short story, as it was some time ago (last Christmas or the one before) and I had no idea what it was about or what the author writes.

    I only listened to this because I'm between books and it was on my unlistened to list and short, I'm pleasantly surprised and will be looking at more books in the series, partly because I'm confused as to the characters (and the cat thing) but also because I enjoyed it. Not badly written and a good narration...

    I hope I won't be disappointed by the other books
