Kiss of Snow Backcover Blurb

As promised, here's the backcover blurb for Kiss of Snow!!

But first, are you sure you want to read it?

Maybe you want to be kept in suspense?

You know waiting will make it even better.

Well....if you're certain...

New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh’s exhilarating world of shapeshifters and psychics is “paranormal romance at its best” (Publishers Weekly). Now comes the story of an alpha wolf named Hawke used to getting exactly what he wants--and of the only woman who dares tangle with him.

Since the moment of her defection from the PsyNet and into the SnowDancer wolf pack, Sienna Lauren has had one weakness. Hawke. Alpha and dangerous, he compels her to madness.

Hawke is used to walking alone, having lost the woman who would’ve been his mate long ago. But Sienna fascinates the primal heart of him, even as he tells himself she is far too young to handle the wild fury of the wolf.

Then Sienna changes the rules and suddenly, there is no more distance, only the most intimate of battles between two people who were never meant to meet. Yet as they strip away each other’s secrets in a storm of raw emotion, they must also ready themselves for a far more vicious fight…

A deadly enemy is out to destroy SnowDancer, striking at everything they hold dear, but it is Sienna’s darkest secret that may yet savage the pack that is her home…and the alpha who is its heartbeat…

oh hell....i cannot wait ♥

maritza said...

Wow. This makes the wait so much harder! ;D

Christine said...

Well, that just cinched the pre-order for me :)

kazb0t said...

siiigh, so SiennaXHawke is true. =/

Well, I know when I read the ACTUAL book, I will warm to the pairing, but dagnabit! I wanted someone, anyone else!

Maybe it's my contrary nature -- the endless people moaning that Sienna and Hawke is The One True Pairing ZOMG annoyed me without end and I hoped it'll be someone else.

But I trust you, Nalini! You will make me love them somehow and prolly wring out some tears while you're at it! (seriously, Dev's book made me cry buckets near the end)

gnette said...

AHHHHHHHHHHHH!
*faints*
more coherent reply to come later...

Carol said...

I was expecting this, especially with PoP, but still...SO EXCITED when I read the blurb. Kiss of Snow cannot come sooner. =]

violet said...

Some sense of peace at last after all those maybe and maybe nots of the last couple of years....Cant wait for it to come out....

Regina said...

Yet as they strip away each other’s secrets

Can´t wait to see this happen!!!

Thanks for the blurb!

Florentina said...

You are really good at making us wait with more and more impatience! :)
I am looking forward to read this book, the snippets in Play of Passion were not enough. (By the way, this book is excellent!!!)
I just don't know if I shall pre-order it in England or in Austria. Don't know which Amazon is faster and where I will be when it is published. :(

Leontine said...

getting goose bumps while reading...this promises to be a top 20 read for sure in 2011 :))

Louise said...

That was just...*speechless*

You made me so happy!!!!!!

I was secretly nervous/afraid that in the end they wouldn't be together.

BTW I loved every page of PoP (top three for me), specially the scenes with Sienna and Hawke :)
Indigo was an excellent heroine and Drew was very sexy.

And now I can wait in peace
(with a lot of impatience).

Katiebabs/ KB said...

Aw I was hoping Kit and Hawke would hook up ;)

Now you can put everyone at ease. Great blurb!

and TEAM KALEB *ahem*

Roseflame said...

Thanks for posting this. Today's my birthday, so best unintentional birthday present ever!

Michelle said...

Hi Nalini,

that sounds exciting! I just hope, she doesn't really 'savage' them. :-D

I'm just now reading 'Play of passion', can't wait to leave work!


Michelle

Shannon C said...

Oh, to say I'm beyond excited just doesn't do it justice! I Looooove Hawke and Sienna is a very lucky lady...I just cannot wait to read this book! You are just fantastic and I love your books, Nalini!

teriannesis said...

YAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Thank Nalini for not making us wait for 8 more months

teriannesis said...

Katiebabs, You do know that Kit is a male don't you? I am not sure any of Nalini's readers are ready for a male/male romance

Erin E. said...

Thank you so much!!! You really made my day, just the thought of this book is so exciting! The back blurb gave me stomach butterflies, love, love, love Hawke and Sienna!

Natasha said...

aaah!! Maybe I should have waited to read that blurb!

kylie said...

Love it!!!!!

Anonymous said...

AHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!! I can't wait until the actual book comes out!!

Katiebabs/ KB said...

teriannesis: Yes I know. I find it interesting that so many readers were worried that Sienna wouldn;t be Hawke's mate. I felt that it was pretty much a given from the moment Hawke's inner beast wanted her.

Deanne said...

holy crap!!!!! I think this may be a really hard wait!

catherine said...

ugh and it's ONLY NOVEMBER!!!!

Fiona said...

yes!yes!yes!yes aaaand YES!

Thank you, for not pairing Hawke with someone else.
My imagination is running wild right now... :)


( I did mention "yes", didn't I?)

Cherry said...

May is too far away. Only good thing will be that I'll be out of classes when it comes out. Nothing to stop me.

Madhura said...

:D:D:D..

Want in NOW!

Stephany said...

"Then Sienna changes the rules..."
What's that all about I wonder??????I am speechless waiting for this book. I am all crazy now. Thanks for this Nalini!!! You are very generous.

RedButterfly said...

OMG I read it XD I decided that I couldnt wait and had to read ;p

So glad that Sienna and Hawke are going to be an item ^_~ She's perfect for him lol Cant wait for this

@Katiebabs/ KB
Im TEAM KALEB too XD

Christina said...

.....*rereads backcover blurb again*.....

YAY! At least confirmation that I am not crazy in the Hawke/Sienna pairing! THANKS Nalini for posting it! It does make the wait all that much harder :( but having something is still nice.

lanath said...

OMG! Can I just say ditto to every comment already written! Just finished Play of Passion and am so stoked to read how Hawke's and Sienna's story plays out. May will not get here soon enough!

Fiona said...

@Katiebabs & Christina

I've not been able to ban a Kaleb based book from my mind since I've read your comments... and I LOVE it!
(thanks)

Eva said...

..Now I can sleep *g*.(Isn´t the cat sweet?)

Catherine said...

It is! They are! She is! Hah!
Ok, it all makes sense to me. Can't wait

farmwifetwo said...

I'm going to have difficulty buying into it after 9 books of her acting and being treated as a "child".

I'm with kazb0t... was hoping for someone else.

Jasmin said...

I already know it; this is going to be my favorite book! It's time to pre-order.

Pilar Maria said...

Now that I'm coherent...

I pretty much knew the possibility for Hawke and Sienna as a pairing was there from the jump.(I told my friend, when I was reading StS at the time, that I could see Hawke and Sienna pairing up in the future)

I'm super excited that all of the build up has led to them actually finally getting there...

...it's just too bad we have to wait.

And I second that "it's time to pre-order".

Anonymous said...

Oh can'twait but just one question , why is the wolf black? I thought Hawk was all White/Silver?

Sarahhhh! said...

Firstly, iagree with every comment BUT the one saying that it shouldn't be Sienna stealing Hawke's heart! What are they chatting about, this match was made in heaven! Thank you Nalini for doing this - as annoyed as I am that I still don't know when the book's to come out in England, that made the wait just that eency weency bit easier!
Thank Youuuu! - did i already say that? :D

Pilar Maria said...

Anon...

I think it's just supposed to be a wolf in shadow.

:Candice: said...

worth it! the agony of waiting, totally worth it

=^)

Anonymous said...

Thank you Nalini, I hope you continue to write books forever and ever and ever :)

Tiona said...

Squee! Can't wait! So glad those two are finally getting together!

Anna said...

I'm with Cheesebk. Get me in a time machine pronto!

Glad the pairing is finally confirmed. Could see it coming from the beginning. Hmmm...I wonder how Sienna turns the table? Maybe by trying to get over her "crush." Gah! My imagination will run wild with possible scenarios. Must. Be. Strong! *alternates agony with Snoopy dance* Can you hear the Charlie Brown theme music? I can!

@Pilar...I second that call. The cover shows that it is a moonlit night, which would lead the observer to conclude the wolf is in shadow. ;o)

Anonymous said...

thanks Nalini...might i second the request for random sentence(s) sneak peeks until release day?

(((katiebabs!!!))) i think i've fallen off the fence and am now firmly on team Kaleb too!!! he's the next big wait after hawke's book!

~mimi

Anonymous said...

[Fiona but a different one than below, LOL]

Snoopy Dance !!!!

:D

:D

And yes, right after Kiss of Snow then I am there with both boots planted for Team Kaleb

... still trying to figure out if he is the Ghost and after the hint in PoP with Judd, and the prior hint in BOJ I'm kinda think he must be :D ...

Though who his mate would be I am blanking on ... he has something of hers and she has hidden herself so deep that he can't find her ... makes me think that she is a strongly shielded Psy but too few hints for Kaleb yet ... TEAM KALEB :D

pushpa said...

I have been coming to this weblog throughout the day to read the blurb and will bookmark it so that I can get my Hawke fix till the book comes out in summer 2011.

Trac said...

I'M SOOOO EXCITED! Even though it was pretty obvious Hawke & Sienna were going to be paired together after the last few books, I'm LOVING the confirmation! I love them both oh so much! FINALLY!!! :) And that blurb sounds so flippin' awesome too! =) KOS and Archangel's Consort are both at the top of my list for books I'm dying/going mental the most for, btw. I think that says something about your writing Nalini. ;-)

orannia said...

I'm still on the fence about Sienna (it's a me thing :) but am hoping Play of Passion will sort that all out :) I am looking forward to Hawke's journey though :)

and TEAM KALEB *ahem*

I'm joining :)

Vivi said...

I'm very excited to have Sienna's POV. So much has happened in her life and I would love her take on it, especially about being rescued by the wolves and meeting Hawke for the first time.

rani said...

Oh great! I so wanted it to be Hawke and Sienna. I've already pre-ordered but I think it's not coming out till august here in the UK.

Anonymous said...

I know almost eveyone is excited about hawk and sienna getting together but I'm not certain about the pairing since he's thirty something and she's only what nineteen, I think she's a little young for him even with what she's been through, but I have faith in Nalini's writing and will wait until I read the book to make up my mind and see what she comes up with.

Anonymous said...

wow, thank you! am so looking forward to KoS - loved PoP. So do we finally find out what is Sienna's true ability as an X-Psy?

My speculation on Kaleb's "mate" is Amara Aleine... don't know why but she is "hidden" from the PsyNet since she is in the DR net.

Kat said...

Sounds fantastic!!!!

Lili said...

Fantastic blurb! I can't wait to read the book! Thanks, Nalini.

Oh and I have a quick question, will Hawke's book be the last for this storyline?

Diane said...

Oh! Oh! Oh!
when, when, when?
sooner please!
more little hints?

Ah, the wait is so long... it sounds wonderful. Secrets always make good drama and prick my curiousity.

Twimom227 said...

OH DEAR LORD! THANK YOU!!

Theresa said...

how are we supposed to wait this long!!!

Barbarita V said...

Wow, Wow, Wow! Thanks for the blurb. How long do I have to wait again? This one is going to hit the first 5 of the bestsellers,you'll see.

Allison('s)Reads said...

Aaaaagggghhhhh! (thank you Nalini)

Ina said...

I love you Nalini - I can't wait to get my hands on Kiss of Snow :)

Una said...

Thank you Nalini - I just had to torture myself by reading it. I admit fully, I was one against the Sienna/Hawke pairing since she seemed so young and just didn't feel right to me to be deserving of Hawke. After PoP, she has truly come into her own, just from the little snippets in PoP, her time with DarkRiver REALLY helped and now with this blurb, I'm so excited to read this!! I said before that although I *ducks head* doubted the pairing, I had faith in you. I was not wrong, I think they will be a fantastic and wonderful couple and I cannot wait to read it (along with everythign else that will be happening)! Thank you again!

(I apologize for the length, I'm sick and this really brightened my day...)

Ash said...

Thank you! I am so excited about this book and I think it could be the best in the series! Which is saying a lot since this series has had some amazing books. Ignore all the naysayers. If they are going to pass judgment on a book/pairing before it's even been released, then any author is better off without those types of "fans". There are legions of us who trust you and are very much anticipating this book!

Sofia said...

OMG! I wish I hadn't read the back cover blurb, Nalini your right, it just makes the waiting that much harder! Kiss of Snow is hugely anticipated by both My Sister and I in my house...

Anonymous said...

You're killing me......I can't wait.

Anonymous said...

HOLY HELL :O I am literally beyond excited right now. AAAAHH!

So relieved it's finally been confirmed with Sienna & Hawke - there was a time a few books back when I worried it might not happen, especially with her rendez-vous in the woods with Kit, but after PoP I was very hopeful :)
I know she's very young, and that gave me a little pause initially, but she's nearly twenty now & a lot more mature, so I reckon it'll be fine. The Kit thing still worries me though - I hope there's not a triangle, and I do like Kit so hopefully he's not too affected.

I think it'll be very similar to the Tamsin-Nate short story; he thinks she's too young, she gets all angry and he has to win her back somehow, etc. Kiss of Snow will either be the best one ever (after all my mental build-up) or a little disappointing for the same reason, but Nalini is awesome so I'm sure it's the former.

PS: Walker & Lara sounds interesting. Also Lissa, Kaleb & Amara - I never even thought of that! Kaleb hinted in one of the books about going to find someone who was 'hiding', & if he is the Ghost (?) he also mentioned maybe wanting to save one person. It's all so awesomely titillating... :L

For the meantime, Archangel's Consort = EXCITEMENTTT!

Love, Gemma.

Oh my God! Love, love, love! I saw them being together from Caressed by Ice! I can't wait!

aquarianjewel said...

This is my most fave series in the world! I have been a die hard reader (and Hawke and Sienna fan!) from the very beginning.

I am dying, Nalini. DYING! I can't wait until June. I need to know about Sienna's powers, I need to see Hawke get his comeuppance, and I totally need to see how Nikita, Anthony, SD and DR are going to hold their territory! Gah, this wait is killing me. I'm not going to make it to June!

Goddess Athena said...

Thanks for the blurb, now that I've read it I'm ready for the excerpt. When will you post one up? Will it be this year or next closer to release date? Can't wait for Hawke's book he such a tortured soul.

i cant wait to freaking read the book! damnit! i shouldn't have read the blurb.. oh jesus mother of god, i cannot wait!!!!!!!!!!!!

Casee said...

Cannot.wait.

PeppyPilotGirl said...

This is going to be one hell of a ride! Thanks for the blurb, Nalini!! Can't wait to learn more about the X-Psy too.

@Farmwifetwo... I see your point and the age thing does bother me aa bit. Yet, in her defense, she *was* a child for many of the early books. She's grown a lot over the last couple - just like most of us, lots of growing up done between 18 and 20.

Re: Kaleb... I didn't think of Amara. I was leaning more toward someone who had been "disappeared" - Faith's cousin Sahara. Though, wouldn't Kaleb know where Amara was since Ming found and retrieved her during Dorian's book? I think he (Kaleb) was still sending out search beacons on the PsyNet at that point, wasn't he?

Anonymous said...

Do any of you think there will be some rebirth kind thing with Sienna; the age and time lines may match.

Anonymous said...

Thank you Nalini! I am wating on pin's and needles for this book. Hope we get the 1st chapter to read really soon.

I am for making Kaleb a good guy...somehow I see him as the Ghost. :)

Crystal Posey said...

Okay. I just scared the heck out of my kids because I squealed so loudly when I read "Sienna Lauren". Of course we knew. WE KNEW. But seeing it....

I haven't been on edge this much about a book release, in well.... EVER.

Anonymous said...

I know everyone is terribly excited, and I trust Nalini's writing, but I agree with those that say nineteen to thirty-something is just creepy. If that was my daughter I would be concerned. Was hoping for someone else.

Anonymous said...

i think, if like Sienna is 25/26 and Hawke is 39?/40?, we will not be hesitating on the pairing...

but nevertheless, sooooooooooo excited!!!!!!! ☻☺☻☺☻☺☻☺

thanks, nalini!

CANNOT WAIT.

Please, please, please give us a sneak peak soon -
everything else would be a crime!

would it work to give us at least a paragraph a week from the upcoming teaser in 'Archangel's Consort'?
(someone said we are greedy - I'd term it desperate... ;))

sigh!, the wait is too much LOL.
Kaleb camp too.

GH is awesome, can't wait for his mother to show up for her baby boy. (chuckle)

Anonymous said...

I was wondering why a 19/about 35 age paring instead of more of a 25+/35 age pairing. I am sure you will write a great book but why cant Hawke of a more mature women in terms of age even in Sienna is mature in mind.

Tonidu said...

The age difference is NOT insurmountable!! Remember how Nate was actually HURTING Tammy by trying to delay their mating until he thought she was "old enough?" Sienna's tortuous life experience absolutely qualifies her as an "old soul."

Can't wait to see the Cardinal X-Psy in action!

Team Kaleb!!!!
