Surprise New Release: Coming this September!!

I'm SO excited to share this news!! I've been bursting to tell you all, and now I finally can.

In short, I've written a hot contemporary romance featuring a rock star hero. It's sexy, it's emotional, and it's deeply romantic.

It'll also be out in ebook & in print in about six weeks. Yes, this September. For real. Promise. See, I don't always torment you with long waits for a release!

September 2014
New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh stuns with a sizzling contemporary romance…

A bad boy wrapped in a sexy, muscled, grown-up package might be worth a little risk…

Molly Webster has always followed the rules. After an ugly scandal tore apart her childhood and made her the focus of the media’s harsh spotlight, she vowed to live an ordinary life. No fame. No impropriety. No pain. Then she meets Zachary Fox, a tattooed bad boy rocker with a voice like whiskey and sin, and a touch that could become an addiction.
A one-night stand with the hottest rock star on the planet, that’s all it was meant to be…

Fox promises scorching heat and dangerous pleasure, coaxing Molly to extend their one-night stand into a one-month fling. After that, he’ll be gone forever, his life never again intersecting with her own. Sex and sin and sensual indulgence, all with an expiration date. No ties, no regrets. Too late, Molly realizes it isn’t only her body that’s become addicted to Fox, but her heart…

Excerpts and the smoking hot cover to come!

I hope you're as excited about this release as I am. I know you'll have questions, so feel free to leave them on this thread and I'll do my best to answer them. (And please share the news - you can snag the quote graphic to share, too.)


If you're a blogger, you can sign up here to get a review copy and/or to participate in the cover reveal. If you have any problems, drop me an email (, and I'll make sure you're added to the list.

Review copies are also available via NetGalley. Link to NetGalley listing.

If you review on Goodreads, or on retailer sites like Amazon and B&N, you can shoot your review request directly to me. Please include a link to your profile or reviews on the site(s). I appreciate every single request and will do my best to fulfill them, but whether we can send out copies to everyone will depend on the number of requests.

Edited to add: Goodreads page for Rock Addiction, if you'd like to add it to your shelves. :-)

p.s. If you're wondering when I managed to write ROCK ADDICTION, I did it on my "vacation". Then I kind of started work on another rock star story in my spare time. Because I am a book nerd who loves to write. For Psy-Changeling and Guild Hunter fans, this won't affect my release schedule for either series, so you can enjoy it guilt-free!

San Antonio Book Signing

Update for those of you attending the signing in San Antonio next week (!!) at the RWA Conference: We've been told that readers won't be allowed to bring in any books from home to be signed.*sad face*

 So, what I'm going to do is bring some transparent bookplates - feel free to ask me to sign them for you. They're kinda neat - once you put them in a book, the book looks signed. See some of you in just over a week! :-)

Friday Book Club and Wild Invitation

Time for the Friday Book Club! What are you reading and loving this week?

Plus, a quick note - if you tried to buy WILD INVITATION on Kindle within the past week, you may have found the entire anthology didn't download. I'm happy to report that the issue has now been fixed. Yay! So if you did have a problem with the file, you should be able to redownload it without issues. 

Apologies for the glitch everyone. Sometimes technology decides it doesn't like us. Also, if you review on Amazon and get Wild Invitation on Kindle in the future, I'd really appreciate it if you could mention that the Kindle file is okay now. Thank you in advance!

Time Machine

His kiss held his heart. It broke hers.
~ Slave to Sensation

I'm going to seriously start work on Aden's book soon, and I'm curious - how many of you have recently found the Psy-Changeling series (welcome to the pack! ;-)), and how many of you have been on this ride from the start? 

Do you remember how you first discovered the series? Same questions if you're a Guild Hunter reader!
