Sienna Lauren and the Lauren family, Psys on the run, are taken in by Hawke and the SnowDancer pack, wolf changelings, after they cut all ties from the Psynet and other Psy. From the start Sienna gets under Hawke's skin and vice versa. Unfortunately for Sienna, Hawke's mate died when they were children, and wolf Changelings mate for life. Hawk tries to stay away from the younger Sienna, because of this fact. Meanwhile, some members of the Psy council are planning a war against SnowDancer and DarkRiver.
It seems like I've been waiting forever to read Kiss of Snow. The Psy/Changeling series is one of my favorites, and Ms. Singh is a must-buy author. With that said, in Kiss of Snow, Ms. Singh ups her game, for it has become my favorite in the series. The reader not only gets a great romance between Hawke and Sienna, but a lovely secondary romance between Walker and Lara. The world that Ms. Singh creates is interesting and complex and the plot is exciting and action-packed. Hawke is a great alpha hero who is determined to fight his attraction, because he can't give all of himself to another. However, once he realizes his love, Hawke is one determined alpha who will go through fire for Sienna and his pack. Sienna pushes and challenges Hawke and proves to him, that she is his equal. In the end, these two prove to be the perfect match for each other, and just what the pack needs.
All in all, Kiss of Snow ranks as my favorite book so far this year. I wanted to savor it slowly, but, unfortunately, like the addict I am, I gulped it down and lost sleep in the process.
