KRESLEY COLE
Delivers a breathtaking tale of a brutal vampire soldier about to know love for the first time...and a Valkyrie aching to be touched.

Murdoch Wroth will stop at nothing to claim Daniela the Ice Maiden -- the delicate Valkyrie who makes his heart beat for the first time in three hundred years. Yet the exquisite Danii is part ice fey, and her freezing skin can't be touched by anyone but her own kind without inflicting pain beyond measure. Soon desperate for closeness, in an agony of frustration, Murdoch and Danii will do anything to have each other. Together, can they find the key that will finally allow them to slake the overwhelming desire burning between them?

GENA SHOWALTER
Puts a daring spin on a tale of huntress and hunted...and concocts a sensual chemistry that is positively explosive.

Aleaha Love can be anyone -- literally. With only skin-to-skin contact, she can
change her appearance, assume any identity. Her newest identity switch has made her an AIR (alien investigation and removal) agent and sends her on a mission to capture a group of otherworldly warriors. Only she becomes the captured. Breean, a golden-skinned commander known for his iron will who is at once dangerous and soul-shatteringly seductive, threatens her new life. Because for the first time, Aleaha only wants to be herself....

First Impressions

I really like the cold winter blues and white with the snow falling around the male model, who brings all the attention the book deserves.  It ties into the upcoming holiday season being a holiday book and makes me want to find out more about the stories.

Review

I love anthologies, especially from two of my favorite, very talented authors.  In a book as a whole I felt that both of the stories were steaming hot and very, very creative.  With Kresley Cole’s “Untouchable” I was on the edge of my seat the whole time flipping page to page wondering how Murdoch and Daniela was going to get together and stay together. I mean what an amazing obstacle to put between a couple!!!!!! This story is a continuation of Cole’s Immortal’s After Dark series (Which I highly, highly recommend you read, seriously!) and Cole continues to draw me into her fantastical world and characters. The plot is so engaging and interesting, though predictable at times it in no way detracted from the story because the next chapter she hits you with a curve ball. All in all it was an enjoyable read that had me readily anticipating the continuation of the series.

With Gena Showalter’s “Tempt Me Eternally” and finding it was Aleaha and Breean’s story ( who were introduced in Showalter’s passed book Seduced the Darkness, a part of her Alien Huntress Series which you should also read!!) I was extremely excited. I love Showalter’s characters and plot lines and I was not terribly disappointed with this one. Though I will say that I was disappointed that her story was not the same length as Cole’s allowing the characters and  plot to develop as much as I would have liked. Besides that the story was hot, hot, hot, action packed and did I say hot?!! The chemistry between Aleaha and Breean was amazing and made the story that much enjoyable. The plot line is a continuation with prier stories in the series so those of you who are reading this as the first book can get a little confused though the interaction with the main characters I feel totally makes up for it.  Showalter’s writing continues to be witty and entertaining and her plot’s continues to leave me surprised and wanting more.

All in All I feel that Deep Kiss of Winter is defiantly a book you should pick up if you want hot, steamy romances packed with action and crazy obstacles leaving you hot and breathless.
