Night Shift - Copy
November 25th (Worldwide)


I can't believe we're already halfway through the year. It's winter in New Zealand and the winds are howling outside as I write this.
I'm looking forward to catching some sun in San Antonio, Texas later this month, when I attend the RWA Conference (scroll down for details of the public booksigning).
Also in this newsletter:
the smoking hot cover of the Night Shift anthology, in which I have a Psy-Changeling novella
links to my post on the future of the Psy-Changeling series, as well as the spoiler thread for Shield of Winter
and, last but not least, a deleted scene from Archangel's Storm.

I hope you enjoy!

Author's Note
This short scene was originally part of Archangel's Storm. While it didn’t make it into the book, I thought it was a beautiful, poignant moment, and I’m delighted to share it with you. (A few of you may have already read this scene in German, as the translation was included in the Love Letter Convention booklet).
For those of you new to the Guild Hunter series, the scene below features Jason and Mahiya, both of whom are angels with sweeping wings and the ability to soar through the sky.
Deleted scene from Archangel's Storm
by Nalini Singh

“Once,” Jason said, his chest rumbling under her as she lay with her cheek pressed to the warm muscle of him, “when I was smaller—I don’t know how small, I only know I could not see as high as when it all went wrong—my father took me out into the lagoon on a boat he built.”
The majority of angels hated being on watercraft, and any ships built to carry them had to be large, with huge decks to allow for takeoffs and landings, as well as sprawling rooms to offset claustrophobic feelings of confinement. In most cases, it was much easier to fly—whether on the wing, or via swift aircraft designed with far more doors than a normal plane.
“It must’ve been a big boat.”
“Yes. It was a catamaran of sorts, weighted to compensate for our wings.” Jason could still remember how his wings had trailed in the warm, aquamarine water so clear he’d been able to see tropical fish swimming by, their scales flashing jewel tones under the sunlight.
It had been so bright that day, the sky a heartbreaking blue, the water glass.
“I was more hindrance than help,” he said, his mind filling with images of his long ago homeland, “but my father insisted he must have my assistance and when I fell into the water, he’d just fish me out and off we’d go again.”
He felt Mahiya’s lips curve against his skin. “I can just see you, a little boy with jet black wings tumbling into the water and coming up a sleek, wet little seal.”
At that instant, he could almost feel the water again, remember what the droplets had felt like trailing down his skin and beading on his lashes. His father’s laughter had been a warm, masculine thing as he pulled Jason out from under the crystalline water, his hands so strong and his eyes so keen that Jason had never been afraid when he fell in.
No, the fear had come later…and so had the darkness.
