Wild Embrace (Psy-Changeling #15.5) by Nalini Singh

The “alpha author of paranormal romance”* presents a stunningly sensual collection of four all-new Psy-Changeling novellas, in which taboos are broken, boundaries are crossed, and instincts prove irresistible...

Echo of Silence 
In a deep-sea station, Tazia Nerif has found her life’s work as an engineer, keeping things running smoothly. But she wants nothing more than to break down the barrier of silence between her and her telekinetic Psy station commander...

A changeling who can never shift lives a life of quiet frustration—until he learns how to let his leopard come out and play...

Partners in Persuasion 
Still raw from being burned by a dominant female, wolf changeling Felix will never again risk being a plaything. But for dominant leopard Dezi, he’s the most fascinating man she’s ever met. She just has to convince this gun-shy wolf that he can trust the dangerous cat who wants to take a slow, sexy bite out of him…

Flirtation of Fate 
Seven years ago, Kenji broke Garnet’s heart. Now the wolf packmates have to investigate the shocking murder of one of their own. And the more Kenji sees of the woman Garnet has become, the deeper he begins to fall once more. But even his primal instincts are no match for the dark secret he carries...

My review:
Four fantastic new short stories that take place in the Psy-Changeling world by the fantastic Nalini Singh.
Echo of Silence – The gives us a look at the workings of an undersea station and a really sweet and endearing love story between a Psy tk and a human engineer that culminates amidst the tragedy of an earthquake.
 Dorian – Dorian has long been one of my favorite characters and while we know what happened to him this story fills out how he felt dealing with it all.
Partners in Persuasion – Several Psy-Changeling stories have dealt with the problems of dominant / submissive personalities and each is as different as the characters themselves. In this story we have a submissive male who has been burnt by love with a dominant female and it has affected his relationships to this point. But now there is a dominant cat that has his wolf sitting up and howling. Can he put his heart on the line one more time?
Flirtation of Fate – My favorite of the four as we have watched the flirtation and give and take between Kenji and Garnet through several books. In this story we find out why things are the way they are between them and see if they can resolve their issues all while solving a locked door murder mystery.
This book is a prime example of why Nalini Singh is an auto-buy author for me.
