A little Kiss

Don't say I don't listen to you all. Here's a small glimpse of Kiss of Snow. I can't promise something every week, but there will be more kisses. ;-)

Part of a conversation between Ben and Hawke

“Didja really put Sinna in jail?”

Hawke bit the inside of his cheek. “Yep.”

Brown eyes the same dark shade as his mother’s, turned wolf-amber in shock. “How come?”

“She didn’t follow the rules.”

Ben thought about it for a second, lines wrinkling up that baby-smooth forehead. “Is it like time-out for grown-ups?”

“Yep.”

“Oh.” A decisive nod. “I’ll tell Marlee.”

Courtney said...

OMG, that was so adorable. Thanks Nalini!

Kaley said...

Can't WAIT for Kiss of Snow! I had a quick question about its availability as an ebook on Amazon in the United States.

Right now, the US Amazon is only offering it in hard cover. Will it come out on the kindle at the same time, is there a delay, or has there been no deal for Kiss of Snow to be offered on the Kindle?

Thanks!

Eva said...

Thank you for my secret little hero! Adore him:-).

Barbarita V said...

thanks, love Ben!

This is one of the first times I popped over to your site. I found this by complete accident, but I must say..... THANK YOU! I knew Hawke was getting his own book and couldn't wait, but I enjoyed reading some of it even more.

Nalini Singh said...

@Kaley - it'll definitely be available in Kindle as well. The Kindle pre-order links don't tend to go live until quite close to the release date, so it might not show up till April. I'll update the site as soon as it's available. :)

@Barbarita V - you're welcome!

So glad you're all enjoying the excerpt!

Sofia said...

OMG! that excerpt is sooo cute, I abso love Ben, he is so loving and I want to squeeze him, and don't even get me started on what I want to do to Hawke...huba huba!

Thanks Nalini that just brought a big grin to my face and I'm clapping my hands in glee on the inside as well as the outside, can't wait for the book.

monikka said...

wisdom said...

Thank You so much! These "little kisses" help with the waiting. They also prove that you love your fans as much as we love you and your books! February is the month of LOVE after all. Thanks again!

Thank you Nalini! I love it! I love seeing how Hawke (and Lucas) respond to children. It kind of ups the appeal *grin*

Hi Nalini,
Thanks for the little teasers. I absolutely love them.
Since Monday is Valentine's Day maybe we can get a longer, sweet "kiss" about H/S as a treat?
