Friday Memes: Wild Invitation by Nalini Singh

Happy Friday everybody!
Book Beginnings on Friday is now hosted by Rose City Reader. The Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice. Check out the links above for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

This week I pulled the anthology Wild Invitation by Nalini Singh from my TBR mountain. I am not a big fan of novellas which means that anthologies - even anthologies by favorite authors - tend to sit a while. Here is the description from Amazon:
Experience the explosive series hailed by #1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan as "a must-read for all my fans."

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.

Plus NEVER BEFORE PUBLISHED 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."

Plus NEVER BEFORE PUBLISHED 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.
The Psy Council tried to outlaw Christmas once.
Friday 56:
He wouldn't hurt her. He could never hurt her.
But that boy was going to die a slow, cruel death. 


  1. I feel the same way about anthologies and novellas. I'd much rather read a novel.

  2. Same feelings about anthologies and novellas...

    Here is my post

  3. Who outlaws Christmas! That would have been my initial thought. I too let anthologies sit, they just aren't as fulfilling as novels.

  4. Sometimes I'm in the mood for a novella but not often! This isn't my usual genre, but I'm trying to expand my reading interests. This book of novellas would be a good place to start.
    Here's the link to my Friday post: PICTURING PERFECT.

  5. No one should be allowed to outlaw Christmas! Surely there is a rule somewhere stating that! I haven't tried an anthology in a long time, maybe I should get back to that! Here's my Friday post and I hope you have a good weekend :)

  6. I have to wonder why a boy would be put to death. A cruel one at that.... I mean, what could he have possibly done?!

    Happy weekend!
