Tangle of Need (Psy-Changeling #11) by Nalini Singh
Adria, wolf changeling and resilient soldier, has made a break with the past–one as unpredictable in love as it was in war. Now comes a new territory, and a devastating new complication: Riaz, a SnowDancer lieutenant already sworn to a desperate woman who belongs to another.
For Riaz, the primal attraction he feels for Adria is a staggering betrayal. For Adria, his dangerous lone-wolf appeal is beyond sexual. It consumes her. It terrifies her. It threatens to undermine everything she has built of her new life. But fighting their wild compulsion toward one another proves a losing battle.
Their coming together is an inferno…and a melding of two wounded souls who promise each other no commitment, no ties, no bonds. Only pleasure. Too late, they realize that they have more to lose than they ever imagined. Drawn into a cataclysmic Psy war that may alter the fate of the world itself, they must make a decision that might just break them both.

Beware, ye unsuspecting TBR lists; this week (and the next, even) are full of follow-up books in popular genre fiction series. Julia Quinn is putting out her new historical romance, and Laura Kaye’s second Vampire Warrior Kings story is being released on Friday. And of course, one of the queens of paranormal romance, Nalini Singh, is releasing her eleventh book in the Psy-Changeling series; word is that the new book refreshes things a bit, which is always welcome to hear about any long-running series, IMO.
I’ve noticed a bit of a commonality amongst several of the releases from this week. Namely, the words in the titles are gloomy and doom-y, really unlike the lighter, summery fare one might expect at about this time of year (i.e., Memorial Day in the U.S.; unofficial start of summer!). Words like dark(ness), shadow, stormy, night…they’re showing up in quite a few of the titles. And then for many that aren’t, the book description implies plenty of darkness. So if you’re in a midst of a deep and intense reading mood, now’s the week to take notice. Poor Summer Days by Susan Mallery, all lonely amongst the hard core books… ^_^
Keen on any new followup releases? Do you ever get into prolonged reading moods (only wanting to read dark/light/short/reread/etc. books for several reads in a row)?
