Frostbite Book 2
By Stacey Kennedy
Tess Jennings, now a member of the Memphis Police Department, is on her first cold case. The suspected suicide of Lizbeth Knapp ten years ago isn’t a theory her family accepts—they believe she was murdered.
But the case is only one of Tess’s worries. Ghosts are talking, and word of her abilities rapidly spreads. A dark ghost is terrifying the spirits of Memphis, and she must force the entity to cross over.
Tess doesn’t have to do this alone. Not only does she have her ghost-lover, Kipp McGowen, but the department has brought in a medium. Dane Wolfe might answer all her questions, but he also brings a world of trouble. Will Tess finally have all she’s ever wanted, or will everything she’s vowed to protect be ripped away?
In case you missed the first book in the Frostbite series, here is a glimpse of Supernaturally Kissed.
Tess must help solve the five-year-old cold case of Hannah Reid’s disappearance, because solving the case will save Kipp. But a bigger problem presents itself. Tess is falling in love with a ghost. Now she must decide. Keep Kipp forever, or find the killer.
Reading the Frostbite series has been a pleasure. The ghost story and erotic elements are stellar. Then you add in the murder mysteries and you have two books that are five star all the way.
What I Liked:
Supernaturally Kissed introduces you to Tess, who has the unfortunate ability to hear ghosts. At least that is what she thinks until Kipp, a real hunk of a guy (dead or not) starts to seduce her body and soul. The murder mystery was good and the plot flowed well. Erotic tension lasted through the whole book and well into Demonically Tempted, the second book in the series. Again, the mystery keeps you guessing and this time, the stakes are higher.
What I Didn't:
Not a thing.
If you like a series that gives you spice, a good ghost story and a mystery to keep you cool on a hot summer's night, then these books are right up your alley. The plot line keeps going, the characters are believable, dialogue real and the sex scenes are delicious. You can't miss with Stacey Kennedy. She builds her characters and makes them memorable.

Now for an interview with the author!
Hi Stacey! Thanks for joining me on the blog today.
1. What was the defining point in your life when you KNEW you were going to be a writer?
It was the moment I finished my very first story. Honestly, at first I had no idea if I could pull it off. I was doing it just because I thought it’d be fun. I had no clue if it would end up being anything good or if there would even be a story there. It wasn’t until I was done, read it and sent it to some friends did I realize that I could actually do it. The rest is history!
2. In Supernaturally Kissed you hone in on Tess and her ability to see spirits. Have you ever had any kind of weird ghostly experiences?
Heck no! I’m a total chicken when it comes to ghosts. Personally, I don’t want to ever see one. Well, maybe if it was Kipp I’d reconsider. But seriously, I’m more than happy that I’ve never had a ghostly experience. I’m perfectly happy writing them in books and pretending they don’t exist. I would never sleep again if I ever saw a ghost for real.
3. How many books will be in the series?
Truthfully, I was wondering this myself for a while. I always planned to write four books in the series, but I did wonder if I could finish off the series in three. But then just the other day the ending for the third book popped into my head and yes, I will need four books to finish off the series. And boy-oh-boy I can’t wait to write the last two. They’re going to be a total blast! Lots of neat magical stuff, action, and Tess chasing down her happily ever after.
4. How many different genres do you write in and which one is your favorite?
I write urban fantasy/paranormal romance and erotic romance, which also includes BDSM. I have a thing for writing Alpha men so these genres tend to fit that nicely. My favorite is by far urban fantasy romance. It’s a hoot to write! I love the supernatural elements and how creative I can get with the world building. I love the fast-paced action and also the romance too. It’s really my favorite place to be and the easiest genre for me to write.
5. What projects are you working on now?
I’m just wrapping up a new urban fantasy romance series, The Cat’s Meow. I’m aiming to have a summer release. Here’s a little peek at it:
In Charleston, Libby is an Enchantress—a witch gifted by the Goddess to conjure spells. Her magic is strong and she’s got a perfect track record when it comes to stopping evil. So when a magical presence is detected around a recent string of feline slayings, Libby must take the case to discover the reasons behind the odd deaths. Much to her displeasure, the coven has also sent the sexy warlock, Kale, to assist her.
While having the muscle around proves to be useful, fighting the attraction between them is worse than a hex, especially considering Kale is keeping secrets. But soon, Libby has bigger problems than the elusive warlock. Her spells are turning up clues that point to something far more sinister than slaughtered cats, leading her to a threat that could shake the very foundation of her world.
Now Libby lands herself in the midst of an uprising. She trusts no one and isn’t safe. Not from the warlocks stirring up trouble. Not from the worrisome rebellion she can’t escape. And certainly not from Kale who is weaving a very dangerous spell over her.
6. Do you have a playlist for the series?
Sadly, no. I’m not much of music gal when it comes to writing, which is odd since I love it the rest of the time. I tend to write in complete silence. But sometimes I will listen to a song before I have to write a certain scene just to get me in that head space. Leona Lewis’s, Run is one I always listen to before I have to write a really emotional scene between the hero and heroine. Love that song!
7. What is your favorite ghost book or movie?
Funny enough I don’t think I’ve ever read a book with a ghost in it. And the only movie I can think of is Ghost. But I try to avoid that movie…it makes me bawl like a baby!
8. Erotica and erotic romance are becoming super popular again. What to you, is the difference? Which do you prefer to write?
For me the difference is this, the plot in erotica is the sex. In erotic romance, the plot is the romance. Typically, I tend to write erotic romance. What can I say? I’m a sucker for a love story and I enjoy the emotional depth I can reach in those stories. But recently I wrote an erotica, CORPORATE TEMPTRESS and its straight sex. It’s told in the hero’s POV only. And I must say that it was a real treat to write. Refreshing almost to not have to worry about messy emotions and simply let the characters have some fun.
9. Do you watch any ghost hunter or haunting shows on TV? If so, which ones are your favorite?
I love ghost shows! All of them! I’m seriously hooked. I’ve watch everything from Paranormal State to Ghost Hunters. That being said, I’d still rather watch it in the comfort of my house and you’d never see me out there hunting ghosts. No way!
10. What is the funniest sex scene you ever wrote and why? (your first one, awkward language or body movement)
You know, the funniest sex scene I’ve written is for a book that’s not published yet. It’s nearly done and sitting on my hard drive. It’s called BITE ME, I’M YOURS and I do believe it’s the only sex scene I’ve ever written that made me laugh. But it’s more the characters that cause it. The heroine has been turned into a vampire—against her will—and is in full bloodlust. She’s unable to control herself around the hero, so it makes for a pretty amusing scene. Especially because he’s trying his best to be a gentleman!
Thanks so much for taking the time to answer questions!
Thanks for having me! It’s been fun!!
