The Lone Texan by Jodi Thomas

Three days after arriving in Galveston, newly widowed Sage McMurray is furious. She'd been gone from Texas long enough to forget what it takes to survive on the frontier and finds herself taken hostage in a robbery. Sage fears if the outlaws discovers who she is, she may never see Whispering Mountain again.
Her fears are about to come true when the outlaws decide to auction off their pretty captive to the highest bidder, and a tall stranger offers twice the higest bid.
Drummond Roak has grown up in the years since Sage left. He now makes his living as a gunfighter, but his love for her has never changed. While fighting to keep her alive, he is also determined to convince the Texan beauty that beneath his wild ways is a man worth loving...
such a wonderfully sweet story. well it's not really the right way to describe it as there's tons of action as well. but this book definitely gives me a feeling of being in Texas. well it gives me a texas feeling anyway with outlaws, horses and the weather and more. drummond is so sweet...well as sweet as a gunfighter can be. holding a torch for her for so long and she's his senior 3 yrs anyway. hehe well hope you enjoy this book

Branded by Fire by Nalini Singh

Though DarkRiver Sentinel Mercy is feeling the pressure to mate, she savage resists when Riley Kincaid, the lieutenant from the SnowDancer pack, tries to possess her. The problem is not simply that he pushes her buttons; the problem is that he's a wolf, she's a cat and they're both used to being on top.
But when a brilliant changeling researcher is kidnapped from DarkRiver territory, Mercy and Riley must work together to track the young man-before his shadowy captors decide he's no longer useful. Along the way, the two dominants may find that submitting to one another uncovers not just a deadly conspiracy, but a passion so raw that it'll leave both of them branded by fire...
a very hot series with two of the most dominant characters from each pack hehe it is tough when you have two people who are both dominant in a relationship and both do not know how to give in. pride matters to both so it's interesting to see how these two settle their differences with each other. and we also see some older characters from the earlier books returning although they are all there in everybook anyway. i missed the book(s) that was before this one. it's dorian's story. i haven't found the book. anyway seems like there's a new story upcoming after this. the next sequel. wonder how it will be. hope you enjoy.

Mine to Possess by Nalini Singh

Clay Bennet is a powerful DarkRiver sentinel, but he grew up in the slums with his human mother, never knowing his changeling father. As a young boy without the bonds of Pack, he tried to stifle his animal nature. He failed...and committed the most extreme acts of violence, killing a man, and lost his best friend Talin, in the bloody aftermath. Everything good in him died the day he was told that she, too, was dead.
Talin McKade barely survived a childhood drenched in bloodshed and terror. Now a new nightmare stalks her-the street children she works to protect are disappearing and turning up dead. Determined to keep them safe, she unlocks the darkest secret in her heart and returns to ask the help of the strongest man she knows...
Clay lost Talin once. He will not let her go again and hungers to possess her with a clawing need born of the leopard within. As they race to save the innocent, Clay and Talin must face the violent truths of their past...or lose everything that ever mattered.
i definitely enjoyed this book as it has been really long since i last had a childhood love kind of story. and it was so sweet. for a while, i was kind of confused as to why both our leads felt that way and was frustrated by how long their misunderstanding would last. hahaha was really relieved when they made peace with each other. grins it's been said that nalini singh is a major new talent and i have to agree. her stories are wonderful.   

Caressed by Ice by Nalini Singh

As an Arrow, an elite soldier in the Psy Council ranks, Judd Lauren was forced to do terrible things in the name of his people. Now he is a defector and his dark abilities have made him the most deadly of assassins-cold, pitiless, unfeeling. Until he meets Brenna...
Brenna Shane Kincaid was an innocent before she was abducted-and had her mind violated-by a serial killer. Her sense of evil runs so deep, she fears she could become a killer herself. Then the first dead body is found, victim of a familiar madness. Judd is her only hope, yet her sensual changeling side rebels against the inhuman side of his personality, even as desire explodes between them. Shocking and raw, their passion is a danger that threatens not only their hearts, but their very lives...
this is the third book, after visions of heat. judd is totally different from vaughn, the total opposite. and i think you can understand from the titles as well, how they're different. there's so much logic and emotion here and it's psychological as well, what brenna went through. imagining it is so tough. if that had happened to me, would i have survived? or would i be suicidal. there is still mystery here from before, which continues on to the next book as to who is really their secret ally and all. hope you enjoy.

Visions of Heat by Nalini Singh

Used to cold silence, Faith NightStar is suddenly being tormented by visions of blood and murder. A bad sign for anyone, but worse for Faith, an F-Psy with the highly sought after ability to predict the future. Then the visions show her something even more dangerous-aching need...exquisite pleasure. But so powerful is her sight, so fragile the state of her mind, that the very emotions she yearns to embrace could be the end of her.
Changeling Vaughn D'Angelo can take the form of either man or jaguar, but it is his animal side that is overwhelmingly drawn to Faith. The jaguar's instinct is to claim this woman it finds so utterly fascinating, and the man has no argument. But while Vaughn craves sensation and hungers to pleasure Faith in every way, desire is a danger that could snap the last threads of her sanity. And there are Psy who need Faith's sight for their own purposes. They must keep her silenced-and keep her from Vaughn.
this seems to be the second book in nalini singh's psy-changeling series. i never read the first one but this is great. there's so much strength in the characters and i'm always amazed at how all authors are able to put their imaginations down into words. many authors like christine feehan have praised her and i have to agree, her books that i've read so far are great. i'll be brining the sequels of this book next. hope you enjoy them.
