Nye, a former slave who lost his love and was tired of being under the control of another ended his life in 1859. His stubborn ways kept him under Gabriel’s thumb and from ascending to Heaven. Feeling that a woman was the cause of his downfall he hasn’t had an urge for a woman for over a hundred and fifty years. Knowing that he has less than seven years left until he earns salvation he is staying on the straight and narrow – until a woman gets caught in the crossfire during a demon hunt.
Receiving devastating news, Kiriana moves across the country only to get caught up in the world of our protectors The Frozen. With each passing moment Nye and Kiriana are pulled into an attraction that could be their ultimate demise or their greatest salvation…
All the while Damarion, is leading a group of female demons as they try to protect the demons sent from Hell to obtain the souls of humans around the world. Being assigned to Earth as a punishment for crimes against the royal family, Damarion learns that there are dangers within his coven trying to take him down and stop him from returning to his love still trapped in Hell and threaten the love that he was so sure was true.
My Review: When Kiri is caught in the crossfire during a demon hunt, Nye’s frozen heart begins to thaw. His partner tells him to leave Kiri behind, but Nye can’t do that. Even after he saves her life, he can’t leave her. Kiri has never been with a man who truly makes her feel. Even though she barely knows Nye, she can’t imagine a life without him. Their irresistible attraction to each other creates a heartstopping, romantic story.
The Frozen is an edgy, fast-paced, erotic, interracial romance. Not only did I fall for the beautiful relationship between Nye and Kiri, I found a special place in my heart for the bad guy (Damarion) as well. Prince is a pro at crafting well-rounded characters the reader can sympathize with and root for. With humor, twists and turns in the plot, and swoon-worthy romantic scenes, this story was worth every moment spent reading it. This isn’t the first time I’ve lost sleep staying up way too late to read a Michel Prince novel! And, let me tell you–it was worth staying up for.
