Branded By Fire! OOOOH! I love it. It seems you weren't joking when you said this would be a hot one. ;) Thinking about Mercy and her potential hero (which I could be wrong about, but I really hope i'm not), I was wondering what the offspring of a mixed changeling couple would be like. For example, if a lion changeling mated with a deer changeling (what? it could happen)...would the child of this union be able to turn into a lion as well as a deer? Hmm. Or perhaps their predatory vs. non-predatory natures would make this an unlikely occurrence.

Can you tell i've been thinking about this series a bit too much? *g*

Ohhh I like it. Also the cover art is gonna be hot too cause it's a lady... I'm looking forward to what that's gonna be like. You always get such great covers.


Daphne - I have totally thought about all those things too...maybe we'll get some answers in Mercy's book LOL

I'm so excited, I've been waiting for Mercy's book for ages it seems like!! When do we get a sample??

abby said...

I didn't know you were back from your blog break! Yeah! And ooh... I LOVE the title! :) When can we expect Mercy's book?

orannia said...

Ohhhhhh - what a great title!

'...what could it mean?' Nalini...I think you are enjoying all of this torture...I mean teasing :)

Actually, I was hoping the title might give me a titbit of a clue about Mercy's mate, but no such luck! 10 weeks and 4 days until HTP and Mercy's chapter. Honestly, I don't know if I'm going to last that long....*goes splat on a very handily placed couch*

PS Out of interest Nalini, am I right in assuming that you select the title of each book?

azteclady said...

*bouncing excitedly on my seat* ooooooohhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!


I want I want I want!!!

*sigh*

Srsly, I want.



*handing orannia some chocolate* Here, m'dear, to tide you over for another day at least.

Christine said...

Oooo!! Awesome title, Nalini! Can't wait to see the cover art. Better yet, I can't wait to read it! LOL Already vying for Mercy's book when we don't even have Dorian's yet!

I say the title is Branded By Fire because Mercy and her mate are so hot together that its like they're on FIRE!

orannia said...

Thank you azteclady! *indulges in some chocolate and then hands the bar back to azteclady...because chocolate should always be shared :)*

And ditto - I definitely want! Is it bad, like Christine said, that we want BBF before we've even read HTP (and I want that too!). Nalini we'll be wraith-like by the time HTP is released...we need teaser sustenance :)

orannia *who isn't sure Nalini will fall for 'teaser sustenance', but figures as we're all desperate it's worth a shot*

Okay, I'm up too late and I've been working too hard this week...

Nalini (you tease), has set my brain on "fire" with her title.

WARNING: Wild theory ahead
What if Mercy's mate is the Ghost? He's blown several installations up lately, no? Lots of fire. He cold be a psy with some tele-pyrotechnic ability. I'm just sayin...

Niiiiice! I love the title, Nalini!

And it's out when? September of this year? Or is it early next year? I can't remember.

Ohh, that really sounds intriguing.

It's quite the opposite from 'caressed by ice', maybe the hero is also quite 'opposite' (from Judd).
wild guess: maybe he is that head guy from Shine: Devlin/Dev, what was his name again?

And I've been thinking about this cross-animal mating too! Would be cool!

What a great title!!! I can not wait.

HAVE to read Dorian first though. I've been trying (unsuccessfully) to keep myself calm waiting for his book - especially as I've been waiting for it since I read StS LOL.

And now I'm all excited for Mercy's book too!! :D

Thanks Nalini!!

Dee Tenorio said...

I have a feeling who her mate is too, and if it's who I think it is, lol, boy, he's going to have serious problems with a chick who can kick his tail, lol.

I guess everyone wonders about that cross-changeling thing. Do you get just one animal or do you end up with something like a Liger? LOL! Then again, Lucas is a product of breeding with Psy and he has some psy sensitivity. Maybe the same thing happens with changelings? So a Dark Dancer might be a golden wolf with spots?

Here's a big question--Are we going to ever see those snake changelings?

Branded as in Mercy is going to be branded by some hot loving!

Tracy said...

Branded by Fire! What an awesome title for Mercy and her mate!!

adh said...

GREAT title! I love it. Can't wait for the book!

little alys said...

Best news EVER! I cannot wait until it's out! Thank you soooooooooo much Ms. Nalini. It'll be wonderful, I just know it.

Nalini Singh said...

Lots of questions...but only a few I can answer *g* (this teasing thing is quite addicting ;))

Dee - the snake changelings were meant to make an appearance already, but it didn't quite work out. You will meet them in the future though. They're really fascinating.

MaryKate - Hostage to Pleasure is out September. :) Branded by Fire doesn't yet have a release date but it'll be next year.

Mary M. said...

Love the title! Sounds HOT :-D.

mee said...

well obviously they're quite fascinating LOL all you characters are!

BbF - What for a hot title Ms. Singh! - Can`t wait to read HtP in September. (-Where I´ll get a quick peek into BfF:-)).

Yesterday I read a few pages of "Leopardenblut" and come to the conclusion, that the english version is better. (But I think that`s normal with translations. The translation is O.K., but there`re some passages that I would translate a little bit different.- They sound a bit, -hm how could I explain.., ... reserved).

I know who I hope Mercy"s mate is (and boy would that shake him up, but I think he'd enjoy the challenge), but we'll see. Dorian first.

Sissi said...

Wow! That title sounds amazing. thrilling and... hot?
I'm sure I'll love it!

Great title, Nalini! When do we get the cover? ;)
