It has been several weeks since Tess helped the Memphis Police Department solve the case that left Kipp in his ghostly state. She is now working her first official cold case with Zach and the Memphis P.D. An outsider is brought in to help Tess acquire some new knowledge about her cursed gift, but Dane has many ulterior motives. The ghosts in Memphis are seeking help from Tess. It appears that they are currently being haunted by something very different than what Tess is used to dealing with. Tess and Kipp are still happily exploring their relationships options.

Tess is a busy girl. Her life seems to get even busier with this installment of the Frostbite series. She’s working a cold case, meeting with a witch in Salem, and she’s learning new and fascinating things about the world she hoped she was not alone in. I liked Demonically Tempted more than SupernaturallyKissed. I think I needed to get used to the ghost lover idea. Kipp is so hot and their ghost sex is steamy enough that I was able to get more into this book.

Dane, I hated him! He is a necessary character for the book, so he is not one of those characters that can make a reader dislike a book. He is one of those characters that brings so much tension to a book that you can’t stop reading it. He continually points out to Tess that she is ignorant of her ability and that she should do other things with her ability. The ass never offers advice on how to better hone her skills. He just tells her all too often that what she is doing with them is pointless. He also has some very interesting thoughts and opinions about Kipp. I have come to really like Kipp, so I decided to want horrible things to happen to Dane.

The ending definitely gets labeled as cliffhanger. Oh my, what an ending. The revelations about Kipp were shocking to say the least. It was a thought that crossed my mind with SupernaturallyKissed, but I dismissed it. Then when I thought that the resolution would present itself Tess is pulled into a different direction. To say I am screaming I want more and I want it now at my Kindle would make light of the situation. Now I will impatiently wait until Mystically Bound is released in the fall. 


  1. Yay...I'm glad you're liking the series more now! Great review! smiles...

  2. Sounds awesome. I have not gotten into this series yet, but am looking forward to it and it is on the wishlist. I have to say that the cover (I know I am shallow at times LOL) is incredibly wonderful to my eye.
