Most days she can be found on Twitter where she'll talk to anyone who talks back, and occasionally just to herself.

    I don't know why, but I seem to have a huge crush on Jack Frost.

    I don't know why, but I seem to have a huge crush on Jack Frost.  This version of him definitely encourages it.  He sounds like he would give any woman the shivers.  This story was a fantastic romance with just the right touch of fantasy.  I appreciated that Kate had real problems and issues holding her back from her relationship with Jack.  Not to mention it would be a little disconcerting to think you'd be surrounded by snow and ice all the time with only one other person for company.  That would give any normal person cold feet.  Pun intended.  The Winter World sounds AMAZING.  I loved the way the author described it and I wish there had been more.  I wanted to know more about the winter fae.  I guess when a book makes you want more, it's pretty good.  This was a fast read with light sexual content and no bad language.

    Info!
    <p>
    We are a realisitic clan. So, please, be realistic. Also, please be active. Ok, so, while i dont want an overload of drama,(such as cat breaks leg first day, second day gets injureied, so on.)but some is fun. So, a little bit of stuff like, 'has longlost brother that moves from other clan'or 'a fox on the territory' kinda thing is ok, just not a ton. Also, becoming mates or having kits with a cat from another clan is not prohibited. However, you will probably lose respect and things. Up too you. But again, limited amounts please. If someone else had already done it, dont do it. If someone has a fox attack for example, dont have a badger attack the next day. Now, onto the territory description. Frostclan lives in northern land. It is cold, and often snowy. There are lots of pine and oak trees, but not so many birch or willow. Bushes are few, most of the plants being scrub grass. Neighboring animals would be arctic foxes. Maybe badgers. Perhapes a snowy owl. Most water is frozen. An exception is a small stream near camp. Finally, a large mountain looms nearby.

    Until Frosted, my vision of Jack Frost was more like Martin Shor

    Until Frosted, my vision of Jack Frost was more like Martin Short in The Santa Clause 3, rather than a blonde, sexy hot guy.  Jack Frost, an unexpected marriage to a mortal, estrangement, and a runaway bride?  I had no idea how this was going to play out when I picked up this book, but it did, and it did well!




    Kate and Jack were both fabulous main characters, frustrating as anything at times!  Kate was terrified of love and commitment and Jack wasn't doing a very good job of showing his love.  Kate was emotionally scarred and Jack hadn't truly had a life for most of his existence.  All of that combined made them fascinating, and frustrating.  But as the story progressed and we learned more about them, it made it that much easier to fall in love with them both!




    Things to love about Frosted...




    ---&quot;Jack Frost&quot; mythology.  I loved the &quot;Jack Frost&quot; story used as the premise for the story.  It was a completely new twist on the stories of Jack we all know.




    ---The winter kingdom.  The author did such a great job of describing this world that I felt like I was there.




    ---The estrangement.  I thought it was an interesting take, and perhaps a bit of a lesson, that the estrangement between Jack and Kate was causing a bit of global warming. 




    ---A new vision of Jack Frost.  Sexy blonde guy beats Martin Short's Jack ANY DAY!




    ---The love story.  Not every love story is perfect from start to finish, not even one based in a tale.  I loved that Kate and Jack had baggage of their own and issues getting to their own fairy tale ending.




    My recommendation:  An absolute must read if you love good romance, a bit of heat, and a happy ending!

    Jack Frost, I've always loved him, and in Wendy Sparrow's novell

    Jack Frost, I've always loved him, and in Wendy Sparrow's novella Frosted, you get to look at Jack from a whole new perspective......a grown-up one.  After falling through the ice Kate finds herself in a fantasy world with Jack Frost, and ends up marrying him, becoming his queen.  She cares for him, but isn't really sure she wants to be in this magical place, at least not forever.  He agrees to let her go back to the mortal word to &quot;put her affairs in order,&quot; giving her 2 years to return.  Kate, fearful of commitment, runs to Florida to get as far away from Jack and the cold weather as possible.  Though she gets away from the cold weather, she can't stop feeling cold all the time, and she sure can't stop Jack from visiting her in her dreams every night, and despite the cold, what happens in her dreams is very hot.  What Wendy doesn't know is that  her running away has affected the balance in Jack's winter kingdom, and if he doesn't get her back soon, all will be lost.  Jack reverts to some covert mortal methods to get Wendy back, but will he be able to do it in time, convincing her that he does really love her and she belongs with him?




    Frosted is a fast-paced and fun contemporary romantic fantasy that is the perfect fairy tale for grown-up girls.  I liked the fact that Wendy Sparrow combined the contemporary element with fantasy, still maintaining the &quot;magic&quot; of Jack Frost, while adding the modern day romance feeling to it.  I enjoyed seeing Jack Frost all grown up, and despite his name and the &quot;coldness&quot; that it represents, Jack is quite the hottie, which was really nice.  I especially enjoyed the &quot;icy-hot&quot; sizzle that was incorporated into the story.  For all of you big girls who still love fairy tales, and also love contemporary romance, Frosted is a fun, sexy little novella you might enjoy checking out.

    This was a great quick read and I could definitely see this deve

    This was a great quick read and I could definitely see this developing into a longer book or even a series of books.  Kate had been raised by two parents who didn't realize that their loveless marriage was setting in motion a lifestyle for Kate that would almost cost her her heart.  She had grown up seeing two people trapped in a marriage and eventually not even speaking to one another.  They divorced and went on to remarry, but instead of giving Kate the family that she deserved, she ended up feeling even more of an  outsider and unwanted.  When she marries Jack, she thinks it is only to give her an escape, because she doesn't think he will let her out of his winter wonderland unless she has married him.  She leaves, with no intention of returning.  




    Jack finally catches up to her though, but Kate doesn't believe that he really loves her - as he has never said as much.  Even though for seven years they have been meeting in her dreams, they cannot speak there, but can only touch - but his touch in her dreams, while not unpleasant, leaves her cold and unsatisfied.  She knows what being trapped in a marriage is like, and doesn't want that feeling for herself.  But is she left cold because Jack?  Or because she isn't ready to admit what she herself feels?

    When Kate Finley falls through some thin ice, she never expected

    When Kate Finley falls through some thin ice, she never expected to find herself face to face with Jack Frost, let alone married to him. Afraid of commitment, marriage and love, Kate finds a loophole with Jack that allows her to come back to her world. She's unaware that her separation from Jack has dire consequences, until she finds herself in Denver right before the Winter Solstice and once again face to face with Jack. Can Kate trust in herself and Jack while letting go of the past?

    This was a really cute story about finding a second chance at love. The author didn't spend a lot of time on the fairy tale aspect of the story, but instead focused on the emotional connection between Jack and Kate. They both had their own emotional short-comings to get over in order to get their relationship on solid footing, but they were finally able to get there.

    A satisfying read and a cute twist on the story of Jack Frost.

    This was a short story, so this will probably be a short review.

    This was a short story, so this will probably be a short review. Who new that Jack Frost could be so hot? I expected to come across a story of a chilled Jack Frost that would have been cold both physically and emotionally, but that isn’t what I got. And it made me smile. Jack Frost is a sweet heart, or yeah and he’s a sexy tall man with crystal blue eyes. *Swoon. The story starts off in the middle of the story, so to speak. Jack and Kate have a past and she can no longer run from it. Surprisingly there was no sexual content described, but that doesn’t mean there was a lack of heat. 




    Good:




    Jack—not the typical Jack we’re use to




    Kate—A woman torn, but determined to find out where she belongs




    Bad: 




    I don’t know Kate’s background information slipped by me, but there wasn’t a lot of info about her life before Jack and what happened with her family.




    Overall (Writing style, story line, and general):




    Overall this read was short and sweet. I never had to re-read something. I was never really confused about anything other than what happened in the last seven years with Kate and her family. There was heat, and pretty good story-line and new kind of Jack Frost. Wendy Sparrow sure knows how to make your winter warm with her quick romance.
