Whisper of Sin by Nalini Singh
Ria is used to the Changelings in San Francisco but her interactions with them have been limited — that is until Ria is attacked by a gang member trying to intimidate her family. Emmett, a DarkRiver leopard Changeling, is determined to protect Ria and explore the unexpected attraction he has to her. But Ria is an independent woman and she has her own ideas for her future.
Nalini Singh can really develop a story and characters in a short amount of pages so I still feel like we got to know Ria and Emmett really well. I loved how feisty Ria was and how it’s obvious she gets that from her grandmother; now she was a firecracker! Emmett was also great because he was protective without being overbearing.
5 stars – loved it!
San Francisco is under threat from a violent gang…a gang that has no idea who they’re challenging. The DarkRiver pack of leopard changelings has already claimed the city as their territory, and they will fight with wild fury to protect its residents. Emmett, a lethally trained leopard soldier, isn’t about to let outsiders muscle in on his home ground—especially when they target a human named Ria.
Emmett has one word for the smart stranger with her curvy body and tough spirit: mine. Possessive, dominant, unyielding in his demands and desires, Emmett is unlike anyone Ria has ever before met. But while the sexy leopard changeling makes her body ignite, his kisses molten and his touch addicting, she’s no pushover and she has a few demands of her own. This leopard has met his match.
