A free short story, 14.1 in the Psy-Changeling paranormal romance series, that intersects with Shards of Hope, 14, revolving around the SnowDancer wolf pack that controls most of California. The couple focus is on Drew Kincaid and Indigo Riviere, in the SnowDancer pack.

It first appeared in Nalini Singh’s May 2016 newsletter.

My Take

It’s a third person dual protagonist point-of-view from Indigo’s and Drew’s perspectives, and it feels both action-packed and character-driven. The action is low-key and totally relevant to the two characters with its intimate focus on two wolf changelings celebrating their first anniversary. And in this instance, it’s Indigo who is frantically trying to figure out some way to offer up a romantic gift to the wolf who oozes romance.

Considering that the short is a whole four pages long, it’s difficult to judge the pace, but it felt just right.

The Story

It’s their first anniversary, and Indigo is frantic to find a romantic gift for Drew, something that’s at least half as romantic as what Drew dreams up for her.

The Characters

Indigo Riviere is a dominant Lieutenant in the SnowDancer wolf pack, and she’s mated to Drew Kincaid, the pack’s tracker (Play of Passion, 9). Platty is Indigo’s raggedy bear.

Riley Kincaid (Branded by Fire, 6) is also a lieutenant of the SnowDancers.

The Title

The title is a conundrum for Indigo, how to go about “Romancing Drew”.
