Alpha Night

ALPHA NIGHT (June 2020)
A Psy-Changeling Trinity Novel

New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh returns to her breathtaking Psy-Changeling Trinity series with a mating that shouldn’t exist…

Alpha wolf Selenka Durev’s devotion to her pack is equaled only by her anger at anyone who would harm those under her care. That currently includes the empaths who’ve flowed into her city for a symposium that is a security nightmare, a powder keg just waiting for a match.

Ethan Night is an Arrow who isn’t an Arrow. Numb and disengaged from the world, he’s loyal only to himself. Assigned as part of the security force at a world-first symposium, he carries a dark agenda tied to the power-hungry and murderous Consortium. Then violence erupts and Ethan finds himself crashing into the heart and soul of an alpha wolf.

Mating at first sight is a myth, a fairytale. Yet Selenka’s wolf is resolute: Ethan Night, broken Arrow and a man capable of obsessive devotion, is the mate it has chosen. Even if the mating bond is full of static and not quite as it should be. Because Selenka’s new mate has a terrible secret, his mind surging with a power that is a creature of madness and death…

“I’m a romance genre girl through and through. When I saw that this was Nalini Singh, I knew I needed to give this book a try even though I hesitate at the genre. I’m really glad that I did. From the first chapter this book captured my attention and held. The writing is phenomenal. It doesn’t matter what genre this author writes, she knows how to captivate.”

A Madness of Sunshine - International Cover Reveal



I'm so excited to share the international cover of my debut thriller, A Madness of Sunshine, coming this December!!! ❤️ it so much!!!! 

A Madness of Sunshine

New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh welcomes you to a remote town on the edge of the world where even the blinding brightness of the sun can’t mask the darkness that lies deep within a killer…

On the rugged West Coast of New Zealand, Golden Cove is more than just a town where people live. The adults are more than neighbors; the children, more than schoolmates.

That is until one fateful summer—and several vanished bodies—shatters the trust holding Golden Cove together. All that’s left are whispers behind closed doors, broken friendships, and a silent agreement not to look back. But they can’t run from the past forever.

Eight years later, a beautiful young woman disappears without a trace, and the residents of Golden Cove wonder if their home shelters something far more dangerous than an unforgiving landscape.

It’s not long before the dark past collides with the haunting present and deadly secrets come to light.

A Madness of Sunshine


I’m working on the final proofs for A Madness of Sunshine this week and taking the chance to talk about the book. πŸƒ

MADNESS is my first stand-alone thriller -  first thing: it’s not written as a romantic suspense or a romance so please don’t go into it expecting that or you’ll be disappointed.

What it is, is an atmospheric thriller set in a remote New Zealand town. What if you knew one of your neighbors or friends was a murderer...but you didn’t know who... Who would you trust? p.s. It’s not gory, if you’re worried about that.

If you have other (non-spoilery) questions about the book, leave them here and I’ll pop in during breaks in my proofreading to answer them.
