Stroke of Enticement

Psy-Changeling Series - Book 7

Short Story in The Magical Christmas Cat Anthology

By Nalini Singh

Berkley Sensation - October 2008

Paranormal Romance

Although I typically put a disclaimer that these stories should be read in order, this short story does stand on its own.

From the moment he went to retrieve his nephew from school, Zach knew he had met his mate. The schoolteacher made his cat purr, and he intended to use all of his skills of stealth to lure her, and make her his.

Annie had never held prejudice against the changelings, but she was definitely experiencing first hand the single minded seductive intent of a dominant leopard male. But she was also a realist. There was no doubt that she wanted him, and he wanted her, but she didn't count on it being forever.

It would simply take said dominant leopard male to change her mind.

Stroke of Enticement was yet another great addition to Nalini Singh's Psy/Changeling series. Zach was the perfect mate for Annie - he saw her as his everything. As a human, Annie, however, had self-doubt and didn't recognize their mate bond. It was touching to watch as Zach erased her fears, built her confidence, and made her his mate.
