Spook Raines is a burnt-out spy who doesn�t know he�s a fire demon with a twin in Sleepy Hollow.
Genevi�ve Mortimer is a will o' the wisp who hunts demons to ease the pain of her troubled past.
When Madame Eve brings them together for a torrid 1Night Stand, will they be able to come in from the cold at last?
Genevi�ve Mortimer crept down the quiet hotel hallway, careful to bank her glow�at least for the moment. She�d sensed the presence of a demon on the floor, but something seemed off about the male�s aura. A weird lack of evil, like an impenetrable force field surrounded his consciousness, his psyche. As if he thought he were�human.
Had he been brainwashed? Drugged? Raised by gypsies? By wolves? Wait. No. Scratch that last one. She didn�t get the were vibe at all.
No matter, as a will-o�-the-wisp and a POLO, Protector of the Legion of Shadows, tasked with watching over humankind and keeping the unwary safe from visitors from the demon realms to the human plane, she lured the black-souled to their demise. Going all shine-a-light and sparkly until the evil ones fell under her spell and followed her anywhere. She needed to find this guy. Pounce first, beam a little hypnotic wattage, ask questions later. Take him out before he did any harm. To humans or innocents like her parents.
She sniffed. Getting warmer. Closer to the demon�s room. What would she find behind his door?
Ignoring the do-not-disturb sign, she jiggled the handle. Locked. But the absence of a key card wouldn�t be a problem for her, not with her brand of talent and the magick lock picks in her pocket. She got the door open in seconds and slinked into the room, masking her radiance, keeping to the shadows.
Holy shit. The scent of male arousal filled the air. Delicious, decadent, sublime. Total man candy, like nothing she�d ever smelled before. Calling to her sweet tooth. Her horny core. So intense, an ache blossomed between her legs. She closed her eyes and inhaled. Whoa. She could orgasm from the erotic scent of the guy alone. Was the dude going through breedspawn? Were all the rumors she�d heard of the full-on crazy demon male mating phase more than myth? She�d sure never encountered anything so powerfully sexy.
Cripes. This sort of thing never happened to her. I�m a demon hunter, damn it. She remained professional always, despite her ditzy, scatterbrained reputation. Did her job. And did it well. She�d fooled even her closest friends, those who didn�t know about her role as a POLOS and didn�t guess the half of it. Those who thought she slut-flitted around the world searching for mischief, adventure, and, most of all, pleasure, like some sort of fickle, commitment-shy, well, yeah, sure, okay, will-o�-the-wisp.

I liked the chemistry between Spook and Genny. I enjoyed how everyone related and the cameos from previous Sleepy Hollow books. However, the history reveal was rushed and confused me greatly. While I enjoyed it, I overall just found it a little messy and fluffy. I expected more conflict and there just wasn’t. In from the Cold is a sweet story of overcoming your past and finding happiness through love and family. Don’t miss out on this steamy read!
I have not read the other books in this series but if the other books are as HOT as this one, then I can't wait to read them. Genny is what they call a will o'the wisp and Spook is a very overworked spy who is a demon but doesn't connect with his demon side. He feels like he is alone and he needs to figure out somethings. Genny hunts demons but she doesn't want to believe she is one. Both of these characters are easy to love and when they get together and have sex, there is steam coming off the pages (screen from my tablet). That's one thing they can do great together. I was a little lost at first from not reading the other books but with the help of the author, I really wasn't lost for long. The author brought answers to all the questions I had and I can't wait to read the ones before this one and whatever ones come after this one. I will just have to keep a towel handy to wipe off my screen from so much steam from the sex scenes.
This is a first for me. This is an average rating. I just didn’t know how to rate this one. In From the cold is book five (5) in the Sleepy Hollow series, but is also tied into Decadent’s 1NS series. In From the Cold actually seemed to take a different twist from the normal 1NS. Spook and Genny met prior to their one night stand, but neither were fully committed to going on a date. Once they meet, things changed quickly. What was different was the morning after. It seemed to then pull in the Sleepy Hollow series at that point. Wrapping up loose ends that I didn’t even know existed. That is where I had my problem. When the other past characters and the wrap-up were included, I got lost. I haven’t read any in the series yet. While they have been on my mind to read them, because I love 1NS, I haven’t been able to find the time. I think if I had read the other books in the series, I would be rating this story higher, but since I have no back ground into the other couples and they play a part in the story, my rating is lower. In From the Cold is still a great little story. Both characters are ready for the next phase in their lives and Madame Eve is right there to help them. Their attraction is smoking hot and definitely draws you in. When I read their initial meeting I knew things were going to be combustible and I was right. Wow, Spook blew my mind. But again since I didn’t have the history, I was left wondering about Sleepy Hollow, what the heck is a fire demon, who are these family/friends/lovers and then add the confusion of their history. So for lovers of the Sleepy Hollow series, I can easily give this story a 4.5. Since Ms. Kincaid seemed to clear up some lingering questions and the supporting case was rather fun to read about. As a standalone, I would give it a 3.5. So if you are following along with my crazy review, In From the Cold gets an average, 4 Hearts.
In her newest edition of the Sleepy Hollow, 1NS series, Ms. Kincaid brings us IN FROM THE COLD and sends us right into the heat! Well worth the wait and looking forward to another installment, hopefully in the near future.
