Nalini Singh’s Blaze of Memory (And A Contest!)


I love Nalini Singh. She’s one of the nicest people I’ve ever met.

I also love Nalini’s books, and you’ve heard me singing their praises her before, especially her Psy/Changeling series.

Blaze of Memory is the newest book about to release from that series. I’m reading it now and like usual Nalini sucks me into her world with memorable characters and gripping emotion.

Read on about Blaze of Memory and how you can win one of Nalini’s books:


Out 3 November 2009

Nalini Singh returns to the Psy/Changeling world and its “breathtaking blend of passion, adventure, and the paranormal” as a woman without a past becomes the pawn of a man who controls her future…

Dev Santos discovers her unconscious and battered, with no memory of who she is. All she knows is that she’s dangerous. Charged with protecting his people’s most vulnerable secrets, Dev is duty-bound to eliminate all threats. It’s a task he’s never hesitated to complete…until he finds himself drawn to a woman who might yet prove the enemy’s most insidious weapon.

Stripped of her memories by a shadowy oppressor, and programmed to carry out cold-blooded murder, Katya Haas is fighting desperately for her sanity itself. Her only hope is Dev. But how can she expect to gain the trust of a man who could very well be her next target? For in this game, one must die…

Excerpt of Blaze of Memory here


“…When it comes to delivering stories that grab you by the throat and don’t let go, Singh is in a class by herself!” – Romantic Times

“…An outstanding November read!” ~ Fresh Fiction

“…BLAZE OF MEMORY had me in tears with the tenderness that Dev and Katya exposed in each other. This story adds immensely to the series…You will want to revisit this love story again and again.” – Romance Junkies


Leave a comment here on the blog with your answer to the question below in the next 24 hours to go into the draw to win a signed copy of Branded By Fire, the previous book in the series. (Or if you prefer, you can choose a mass market copy of the An Enchanted Season anthology).

    I am looking forward to Lora Leigh’s newest book from her Bound Hearts series….Guilty Pleasure. I also can’t wait to read Kresley Cole’s new book in her Immortals After Dark series Pleasure of a Dark Prince…love that title. :boobie:

    I haven’t read any of Nalini’s work before. I know people keep saying that I need to read the Psy/Changling series and I only hear good things about it, but for some reason I haven’t started them yet. :loser:
    Would love the chance to win and change that 🙂

    Seeing Kiss by Eden Bradley
    Bound to Shadows by Keri Arthur
    Holiday Heat by Jaci Burton & Lauren Dane
    Songbird by Maya Banks
    Lovers Alchemy by Ciar Cullen
    Blaze of Memory by Nalini Singh
    Hot Spell by Michelle Rowen
    Highway Man by Michele Hauf
    Candy Houses by Shiloh Walker
    Laid Bare by Lauren Dane

    and I’m going to try a new series:
    I just downloaded Darkfever freebie from Sony Ebook shop — that’s how I discovered Lara Adrian, too!

    Books I’m looking forward to in the coming months!
    Mark Henry’s next zombiefest in the Amanda Feral series
    Charlaine Harris’ next Sookie book – Dead in the Family
    Lara Adrian’s next Midnight Breed book – Shades of Midnight
