Secrets at Midnight by Nalini Singh

Secrets at Midnight (Psy-Changeling Novel, A) - Nalini Singh

Bastien Smith has been in agony for the last two weeks. He knows he's found his mate, he's scented her, but the scent is so elusive, not even his leopard can follow it, pinpoint it down. Because she smells funny. Sometimes like a changeling, sometimes like a human. He's been roaming the city streets every night, yet nothing. Then his mother releases him from her matchmaking party to drive a Pack elder home, and there she is. On Pack territory, on the older woman's front steps...His mate.

This was yet another great story with engaging characters, nearly flawless pacing, enough cuteness and sexiness to be able to sell it, and a slight mystery to boot, involving Kirby and her "nature".
I loved Bastien and Kirby, the chemistry between them, their nascent bond, the romance, and the playfulness. Beautifully written.
