    Really enjoyed this book. I recommend the whole series. I stumbled upon this series with a novella in anthology and loved it, so I had to get my hands on the whole series. This is the third book in the series, there are 10 books released for this series to date. All are really good.

    I adore this book. I love how they come together and overcome so much to be together. Not all the tension between couples has to be from external sources. I like how this book is actually focused on the couple and not so much the background happenings.

    NUMBER OF HEARTS: 4 3/4
    REVIEW:  
    Just when I think that Vaughn is my favorite Judd Lauren walks into my life.  All tall, dark, cool and oh my goodness yummy!!!!  I totally loved everything about Judd and Brenna’s story.  These two are so beyond perfect together.   I am so glad that Brenna never gave up on Judd.  :)  
    This story had a lot of ups and downs that at times I wondered how Nalini was going to pull it all off.  But being the amazing story teller that she is Nalini made everything perfect.   
    Again another amazing story from Nalini and another amazing reading by Angela!   These two are an amazing pair.  I am already on to the next audio book in this series and as long as Nalini keeps turn out amazing stories and Angela narrates them I will keep going on audio in this series. 

    Disclaimer: 
    I purchased this book from Audible and this review is my own opinion and not a paid review.

    Judd Lauren, a former Arrow that still does wet work, is trying

    Judd Lauren, a former Arrow that still does wet work, is trying not to be affected by his contact with Brenna(Bren) Kincaid Shane. Judd was involved with her rescue from Santano Enrique. Brenna only trusts Judd with the monsters and nightmares she faces even though it's been months since her attack. Bren doesn't let her family or other pack members into her mind no matter what. Bren calls Judd "The Original Ice Man" because of his coldness towards others. Judd knows to feel emotion is to break Silence something that he must not do ever. Yet how can he explain the feelings surrounding his attraction to Bren. Bren's brothers Riley and Andrew(Drew) are so overprotective of her that she can't breathe or feel free either. Judd seems to be the only person Bren listens too. The Psy Council is trying to implement Project I where children are implanted with device to control their emotions and other behaviors. Ghost doesn't want Project I to come to fruition period and enlists Judd's help to make it happen. Small and weak changeling packs are being attacked with no discernable pattern to their strikes. Bren and her loved ones are being attacked for no apparen reason. Who is mastermind behind Project I? Who is behind the attacks on Bren and family? Will Judd break Silence? Will either Judd or Bren admit their feelings? Your answers await you in Caressed By Ice.

    I'm definitely liking this series a bit more with each book. It's interesting seeing the dynsmic between the Psy and Changeling. I look forward to more in this series to come. This series is well-written with rich characters and backgrounds to leave you panting for more.

    So good! 
    Oh. My. Goodness. This is an excellent romance with the archetype of a cool dangerous hero.  The heroine is no slouch either and
     together they bridge the cultural gap between the Psy and the Changelings. 

    This entire series is amazing but this book stands out as one of the best love stories in terms of character development and great
    couple time blended with Singh's always superior world building.  I have reread this one several times because of the deliciousness
    of the interactions between hero and heroine and to visit old friends. 

    I highly recommend this book and the series.

    This is the third installment of the PsyChangling series. Judd, who is mentioned in books one and two is the main focus in this story. After he helped save Brenna in book two, this shows the aftermath and growing relationship between Judd and Brenna. Although this one was not my favorite, it still has all the elements of the first two books which keeps you reading. I love the world Nalini has created within these books. She keeps pulling you in with the excitement and sensuality of the changlings and the cold hearted Psy.

    Another knockout hit

    When Brenna and Judd first met, he was risking his life and his family to save her from a crazed Psy serial killer. Months later, Brenna can no longer change into her Wolf and fears she is more Psy than Changeling. Judd is trying to find his place in a world outside of the PsyNet. Their fates are bound together again when another serial killer strikes, this time deep within the heart of the Pack. Can a man of no emotions and a woman who is emotionally wounded forge a relationship and stop a killer?'Caressed' adds a new dimension to the series plot, as Ms. Singh gives the reader just enough new worldbuilding tidbits about the Snowdancers to keep them dying for more. However, the book is also wonderful on its own with every character, from Brenna & Judd to Brenna's brothers and other minor Changelings, well rounded and utterly believable. Right up there with J.R. Ward's 'Black Dagger' series and Feehan's later 'Dark' books, 'Caressed by Twilight' is a must read for any paranormal connoisseur.

    Much Improved Over Previous Series Book

    "Caressed by Ice" was much better than "Visions of Heat," in my opinion. In VoH, the main characters felt forced to be with each other, in a sense; in this one, although Judd was a Psy, and his love interest Brenna was a Wolf Changeling, Brenna understood and respected his reluctance and difficulty in touching. In VoH, Vaughn, a Jaguar Changeling, didn't seem to care that Faith, a powerful Psy, would freak if he touched her. It was as if he was forcing Faith to accept it, even if it meant she would go into seizures due to his touch. You don't do that to someone you care about and want to get to know; you take your time, like Brenna and Judd did in CbI.

    I'm glad Nalini Singh wrote CbI a little differently. It also gave me a chance to see the inner workings of the SnowDancer Wolfpack, as opposed to only writing about the DarkRiver Leopardpack. Much better book. Thanks to CbI, I will continue to read this series.

    Highly Recommended

    I planned on taking a break from this series after the last book, than I made the mistake of reading the blurb for this one at the end of it and I was hooked on Judd immediately. It was nice to mix it up with a male Psy for this one, and what a Psy. Cold, dark, and sexy as hell. I'm a huge Judd fan. And I guess Brenna's OK too. :) It was also nice to see things from the wolves perspective this time instead of the cats, Singh does a good job of mixing it up so the reader doesn't get bored.

    I loved this book!!!

    ¿Caressed by Ice¿ is Nalini Singh¿s third installment in her captivating Psy/Changeling series, and continues the saga of the shape-shifting changelings and their and nemeses, the Psy. In ¿Caressed¿, Judd Lauren is the mysterious Psy refugee who has been hiding with his family amongst the Changeling Wolf SnowDancer Pack, although he realizes he can never fully fit into their world. No one in the changeling world knows exactly who or what Judd Laurens was when he was in the Psy Net, but everyone knows that he can be very dangerous. While the SnowDancers tolerate his presence in their pack, he is very aware that his Psy status and their questions about his abilities makes him far from trustworthy in their eyes. Judd struggles to keep his family outside of the Psy Council¿s radar and tries to find a place to fit within the pack, and at the same time continues working with underground Psy forces against the same council who provided his deadly training. Brenna Kincaid is an energetic and talented SnowDancer who was kidnapped by a Psy council member and viciously and psychically attacked. As she continues on a journey of healing and comes to terms with the changes resulting from the attack, she finds herself increasingly comforted and attracted to Judd¿s presence in her life. For Judd, Brenna threatens to awaken feelings that he has not only spent a lifetime suppressing, but believes will be dangerous if allowed to be unleashed. Judd and Brenna find themselves struggling to define and work out their relationship while the conflict between Psy and Changeling escalates. The pack also begins to believe there is a spy within their midst. Ever since I first read about Judd, I¿ve been anxiously awaiting his story. My wait was well rewarded! I found the book captivating, exciting, and intriguing. In 'Caressed by Ice' Nalini Singh does a wonderful job of including us in Judd and Brenna's world as they struggle to both find a traitor in their midst, and come to terms with who they are, have become, and what they mean to one another. Judd breaks your heart as he struggles to balance his need for Brenna and what he perceives as his need to protect others from his gift. He truly believes that he will be alone in the world and that there is no hope to end that. Brenna demonstrates unwavering bravery in fighting to heal from her traumatic kidnapping and fighting to make Judd her own. Once the issues preventing them from being together are resolved the heat between Judd and Brenna is scorching! As with her other books, Ms. Singh did a wonderful job creating a mystery within a mystery, and an extremely touching romance at the same time. You¿re also introduced to the ¿ghost¿ and his/her revolutionary activities within the Psy Net in the story, and are also provided with lots of juicy hints about the fates of other characters. All and all this book is an excellent read and I would recommend it wholeheartedly!!! I can¿t wait for the next one!

    What a great read!

    As an Arrow, Judd Lauren was raised in Silence, which linked emotion to physical pain, making him a true Ice Man. Trained as the deadliest of assassins because of a genetic ¿gift¿, he chose to defect in order to save his family. Taken in by he SnowDancer pack, he and his family are assumed to be dead, and he wants to keep it that way. Brenna Kincaid, a member of the SnowDancer pack, was abducted and brutally violated physically and mentally by a serial killer. Determined to put the past behind her and move on, she begins to fear she has been tainted by evil when a murder occurs exactly the way she had seen it in a dream. Or was it a vision? Because Judd was part of the team to rescue her and has the Psy ability to help with the healing process, Brenna turns to him as her only hope, the only one who can understand her fear. Soon she begins to turn to him with desire, but the Ice Man refuses to be warmed by the passion that explodes between them. Then their lives are threatened and they must work together to find the killer before he strikes again -- at them. The third entry in the Psy/Changeling world, CARESSED BY ICE is fascinating, romantic, suspenseful, and sensuous. Ms. Singh has done an excellent job of creating a world where Psy and Changeling have an uneasy relationship. Both have good and evil, both are flawed, and both are coming to see the other as more than previously believed. The Psy could be us, without the psychic gifts of course. I can believe many of our politicians have the same attitude toward their constituents, not to mention their own importance, as the Council does. Several threads woven into the story are yet to be tugged further in upcoming offerings. I like that not every little plot line has been wrapped up in a neat little bow. I just wish I didn¿t have to wait so long to see what happens next. While this can be read as a stand alone, characters from SLAVE TO SENSATION and VISIONS OF HEAT interact with our hero and heroine. I¿m been a huge fan of Ms. Singh since reading SLAVE TO SENSATION, but I was unsure how she could possibly thaw Judd in a manner that would be believable. I needn¿t have wondered. Judd and Brenna, while total opposites, are designed to complement and complete each other perfectly. Totally satisfying, and with scorching sensuality, this is a series not to be missed.

    This was a fantastic read. A great continuation in the ongoing saga between the changelings and the psi. I was grabbed from page 1 and unable to put this book down. Anyone who enjoyed Slave To Sensation and Visions Of Heat will devour this one immediately.

    This is the story of Judd a Psy Arror and Brenna a Changling. I was wondering about Brenna after being attacked in the 2nd book in this series. But she is one strong lady. I also wondered if this one would be as good since the male was the Psy in this book. But Ms. Singh went above and beyond my expectations. I just loved how even though Judd tried not to feel anything for Brenna that he couldn't help himself and couldn't keep away from her. And this book has me looking forward to more stories in this series with anticipation
