About Author:

Maggie Shayne Nalini Singh Erin McCarthy Jean Johnson

I live in the teeny, tiny town of Taylor, NY, Alliteration Alert though my mailing address is Cincinnatus, my telephone exchange is Truxton and I pay taxes and vote in Cuyler All of these are at least in the same rural county in the southern hills of New York State Cortland County There are cattle than people here The nearest big cities are Syracuse and Binghamton and they are an hour away, in different directions, and not really all that big by most standards, though they both seem humongous to me I look out my window to see rolling, green, thickly forested hills, wildflower laden meadows and wide open blue, blue skies My road is barely paved The nearest neighboring place is a 700 acre dairy farm.My house is a big, century old farmhouse I moved in here after my divorce in 2006 Just a little over a year later, the house, which I had named, SERENITY, burned It was 99% gutted, and I lost my two dogs, Sally, an 11 year old great Dane, and Wrinkles, my 14 year old, blind bulldog This was the culmination of my Dark Night of the soul, which had seemed to hit me all at once in 2006 2007 My mother died that year, after a 14 month battle with pancreatic cancer She was only 60 The youngest of my five daughters had left home that same year, and while that s not a tragedy at all, it felt like one to me Then came the divorce And finally there was the fire it seemed my darkest night wasn t quite finished with me after all I had lost almost everything before that point, and as I poked through the wet ashes and soot the next day, I realized that I had now been stripped all the way to the bone.No better time to start over And no, I didn t come to that realization that day there were a few days of wallowing in pity first, particularly the day after the fire, when I hit a deer and smashed up my car, which I was practically living in That s when I started to laugh Just sat on the side of the road as the deer bounded, uninjured and carefree, out of sight, and laughed It was just too ridiculous at that point, to do anything else And from there, I picked myself up, and brushed myself off, and said, okay, there s only one way to go from here Forward And that s what I did There I was at the age of harrurmphemmph, living in my one, mostly undamaged remaining room, with a dorm sized mini fridge, a futon, a TV, my cat nine lives and a laptop And not much else Though thank goodness the room that survived the fire, was a room that had its own attached bathroom Since then I have rebuilt my beloved home, which really has become my haven, my Serenity I share it now with my fianc , Lance, and we have accumulated quite the little family together Little being a relative term We have a pair of English Mastiffs, Dozer and Daisy, who weigh 203 pounds and 208 pounds respectively, and a little pudgy English Bulldog named Niblet, who is bigger than both of them, inside her mind We also have the aforementioned cat, Glorificus Glory for short, who adores her canine pups and keeps them firmly in line And we ve acquired a pair of stray cats as well, a mother and son, Luna Lulu for short and Butters aka Buddy Lulu showed up pregnant during a lunar eclipse, had a litter, and vanished again We found homes for all the kittens except one Butters We got him fixed and kept him A few months later, Lulu returned, again expecting This litter was born on the Monster Moon Again, all the kittens were spayed and neutered and placed in homes, and this time we got Lulu to the vet in time to spay her before the cycle could repeat Glory is not amused.She has a story of her own, my old Glory cat, having been with me before the Dark Times descended, she went through it all with me, moved with me, survived the fire, and remains with me still She s tolerating the newcomers Barely.My partner is an artist, a mechanic, a welder and an inventor, and the rumors are true, he is much younger than I



Comments An Enchanted Season

  • Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books)

    This is one of those short story collections that really surprised me, in a good way. I expected to only enjoy the Nalini Singh, but I liked or loved every story in the book. In fact, I might have liked three of them to the same degree as the Nalini Singh story. Gasp!!!! Don't tell anyone I said that!I was really happy with the Erin McCarthy story. It's about friends who both want to be more, but are afraid to take the first step. And the great thing is it's love, not lust. They are a very cute [...]

    I enjoyed Melting Frosty by Maggie Shayne! Beat of Temptation by Nalini Singh was good of course but it had a little more drama than I expected.


  • Leah

    AN ENCHANTED SEASON - 4 STARSThe reason that I bought this book was because of the Nalini Singh book as I am obsessed with the Psy-Changeling series. Naturally, I read that story first, but I couldn't not read the rest of the book. So I started at the beginning, reading it straight through (Of course I read Singh's story again!) and I'm glad I bought it because I liked all the stories."Melting Frosty" by Maggie Shayne - 3.5 starsI've read a couple of novellas by Maggie Shayne before and I liked [...]


  • Fanny

    Tammy y Nate me encantaron como personajes secundarios en La Noche Del Cazador, asi que me moria de ganas por leer su historia.Antes que nada debo decir que esta pequeña novela fue muuuucho mejor de lo que esperaba, al no ser demasiado extensa pense que seria superficial y simple pero lo cierto es que tiene un desarrollo muy bueno.La relacion entre Nate y Tammy fue dulce y tierna y aunque no me hubiera molestado que fuera mas larga, me senti bastante satisfecha con este pequeño libro.3.75 Estr [...]


  • Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog)

    This review/rating is only for Beat of Temptation by Nalini Singh.I’ll be honest. I didn’t think much about Nate and Tamsyn. They were just always there. Both are an integral part of the Pack, but they were always on the peripheral. Tammy is the healer and Nate is a sentinel, butBeat of Temptation gives us the chance to read their story.Wow. I absolutely loved their story to bits! Tammy is just 19 years old while Nate is 29. The large age different plays a part in their relationship because [...]

    This story went fromtoAnd thenand I fucking loved it.“What about your freedom?" he whispered in her ear over a minute later []"Idiot." She nipped his jaw with her teeth. "The only freedom I ever wanted was the right to love you.”


  • Sandra

    Entiendo dónde me estoy metiendo al leer una saga en la que los protagonistas son medio animales (panteras, jaguares, leopardos) y que tienen un instinto de dominancia y de macho alfa que no pueden remediarlo. De verdad que lo entiendo. En La noche del cazador no me pareció tan bruto pero en La noche del jaguar ya empezó a molestarme y, de hecho, odiaba un poco a Vaughn porque me parecía insoportable dominante y hasta machista. Pero ya en este sí que no Tenía muchísimas ganas de leer la h [...]

    Overall Anthology 4 StarsI thought two of the stories in here were great I loved them, but the other two not so much. But I think likeing 50% is pretty good so I definately don't regret buying this anthologyMelting Frosty by Maggie Shayne2.5 StarsHolly and Matthew both had tradegy strike when they were 12 years old around the Christmas holidays. They both reacted completely differently though, Matthew has become a Scrooge who hates everything about Christmas and Holly who loves it and sees it as [...]

    This is a collection of 4 paranormal, holiday stories by authors Maggie Shayne, Erin McCarthy, Nalini Singh, and Jean Johnson. All 4 are authors I've read and enjoyed, so I'm very much looking forward to reading it. I will post a review for each story individually, as I go. "Melting Frosty" by Maggie ShayneThe 2 main characters both lost someone(s) when they were 12, however they both coped with it very differently. Here they come together, or clash together, over their outcoming views of the ho [...]

    **only reading Beat of Temptation by Nalini Singh**After reading Slave to Sensation, I found out there was Nate and Tamsyn's story thanks to my great friend, Leigh. Thanks Leighu ROCK!! I'm so glad she told me. I loved their story. I don't think you can really appreciate them without reading this story. The story is basically about Nate and Tamsyn wanting to complete their mating bond. Nate is torn because he feels Tamsyn is young and needs her freedom and he wants to give her time. Tamsyn doe [...]

    Reread (April 12, 2016)I love Nate and Tamsyn!Reread (July 8, 2015)I love that these two have been mated for so long. It gives me all the feels. Reread (Jun 14, 2014)Gah, it just makes so happy, teary and swoony when I think about how Tammy and Nate have been mated for over 20 years, they have family and they still love each other so much, maybe even more after being together for so many years. I adore these two and the fact we had an opportunity to read their story.Originally read (Apr 17, 2012 [...]

    October 2013I have had quite a few of the Psy-Changeling books for a long time now but they have never seemed to reach the top of the pile. I had read some of NS's Harlequin books in the past and although I enjoyed them they never really wowed me and I honestly thought that she would struggle writing in the PNR genre and they wouldn't live up to expectations. Anyway, I had been seeing a lot of activity on them in the last month or so which reminded me that they had been sitting there gathering d [...]


  • SheLove2Read

    Decided to only read the one story by Nalini Singh. Didn't attempt the others. **Spoilerish**The story by Nalini Singh is part of her Psy Changeling series and stars Tamsyn and Nate. This is the story of their relationship and mating. I loved it. It was so emotional. Tamsyn just broke my heart with her believing that Nate didn't want her. And Nate being the idiot man he is, thought he was giving her the space she needed before bonding with her - when he finally wised up it really made the HEA te [...]


  • Autumn

    for Nailini Singh`s story Absolutely loved Nate`s and Tamsyn story I loved them so much in Slave to Sensation that it was so thoughtful of NS to give us a reprieve with this couple`s history.Nate has his insecurities, was insufferable at times but Who can resist him??? and his reasons?? His thoughtfulness and utter devotion towards tammy was so sweet!!Great story!! :)

    Nalini Singh - Beat of Temptation4.5 stars


  • Carolyn F.

    Okay, this one I liked the first 2 stories. The Singh story was okay but the hero drove me bananas. The last story by Johnson was sappy sweet but a cute story.


  • Megan

    "Melting Frosty" by Maggie Shayne. 4 stars. VERY GOOD!! A real tear-jerker! Holly and Mathew. She is an upholder of Christmas cheer and he is a Scrooge. (Read 12/07)"Charlotte's Webb" by Erin McCarthy. 3 1/2 stars. 1st story in Murphy Sisters series. A solidly good story, almost a little too sugary-sweet for me. Charlotte and Will are long-time best friends, but have been secretly attracted to each other for years. Charlotte finds out that she is a witch during the Christmas season and decides t [...]


  • Angela

    Beat of Temptation (Psy/Changeling, 0.5): Nate and Tamsyn's story.There are few authors that I feel like can write a good, satisfying, complete short story or novella. Nalini Singh is one of those. I always finish her books, novellas, snippets wanting more but that's simply because I can't get enough of the wonderful world, characters and plot she writes. I'm smiling, (or crying), and completely spellbound while I'm reading.I loved Tammy, and Nate, from the first moment I saw them in Slave to Se [...]


  • Shera (Book Whispers)

    ****This is a review for Beat of Temptation Psy-Changeling book .5, featured in the title An Enchanted Season****Don't read this. No really. After finishing this short story I loath Nathan. Now, every time I read about poor Tammy and Nate it will simply be tainted. Sometimes there shouldn't be origin stories for our favorite couples. Nathan is absolutely horrid to Tammy. He treats her like a brainless idiot. Like a woman who needs to be looked out for and all of her decisions made by someone els [...]


  • Heather

    4.5 starsOnly read Nalini Singh's "Beat of Temptation."Thought it was amazing. Caught me by surprise how emotionally involved I became. I cried and I haven't done that in a while. I thought Tamsin was just about the perfect heroine, trying everything to get her mate to be with her, it was heart-breaking and heart-lifting at the same time. Nate, our stubborn hero, wore on my nerves, but in a good and frustrating way (if that's possible). So very happy that I read this one, I think I liked it bett [...]


  • Leigh

    Only read Beat of Temptation by Nalini Singh.4.5 stars. Loved this short story about Nate and Tamsyn getting together. It was great to get a more in-depth look into their characters. They are both just great, and I had to laugh at how hard-headed Nate was. Glad that Tamsyn did what she needed to do get get Nate to wake up to what she needed. :)The only thing preventing me from giving it 5 stars was the lack of loving. :( Of course, it was implied, but with all the sexual tension, frustration, an [...]


  • Susan (susayq ~)

    I picked this up cause I'm starting the Psy-Changeling series by Nalini Singh and I wanted to read her little story that goes with the series. IT WAS GREAT! Tamsyn broke my heart and I even shed some tears.Naturally, I had to read the rest of the stories in here heehee I had never read anything by any of the authors. The Maggie Shayne story was very sweet. Erin McCarthy's story was hot! I'm going to be looking for her stuff in the new year. Jean Johnson's story was about refinding love.wonderful [...]


  • Stacey

    After reading Kiss of Snow Ive been having a hard time leaving the changeling world so I finally read Beat of Temptation by Nalini Singh. The sweet, although chock-full of frustration, the story of Tamsyn and Nate. I've always loved Tamsyn's character and loved the story of how she landed Nate ;) it was a great quick read that fulfilled my need for more changeling lovin!


  • Shannon C.

    5 stars: Maggie Shayne - AWESOME short story: poignant and sweet4 stars: Erin McCarthy - Laugh out loud funny, cute romance5 stars: Nalini Singh - Great Psy Changeling short story about Nate & Tammy. It's a tearjerker! 3 stars: Jean Johnson - Not as much romantic development in this one.

  • Julie (jjmachshev)
