Frost Line by Linda Howard, Linda Jones

Hello to all,

               Sorry to have missed last week post but Mother's day was near and since it's my first one without mine i wasn't in the mood for anything fun or even book related. I will give you two this week to make up for that but first today is a book that tempted me as soon as i saw the cover and read the blurb "Frost Line", i even got my brother to read it so i had to share it with you as well.

Happy reading!

Description from goodreads :

 Lenna is Strength, a manifestation of the Tarot card, and powerful beyond reckoning. But when she’s pulled into the human realm and tasked with protecting a young boy, everything is thrown into chaos. Lenna’s not supposed to be here, interacting with mortals. She’s definitely not supposed to be drawn to the sexy mercenary sent to retrieve her by any means necessary . . .

As a Hunter for magical beings, Caine’s duty is simple: return this compelling, impossibly attractive woman and secure the long lost Tarot deck that made travel between worlds possible. Instead he’s drawn into Lenna’s dangerous rescue mission and blindsided by his growing feelings. But there is more than one enemy to contend with. And as the clock runs out, failure means not just the loss of an innocent life and the woman Caine has come to love, but the destruction of Lenna’s entire world.

My opinion:
          It was a novelty for me and i wanted to start 2017 with one so it was perfect even better: i really, really liked this story. It has humour, some suspense, action  and magic all to make a great story.
it's a stand alone which makes it even better in my opinion. Lenna is a powerful being but she has a touch of innocence and is utterly loyal ( and clever) she is really a manifestation of willpower. I loved her a lot. The way she put Caine in difficulty was cute and humorous . Caine is a Hunter, a very dedicated one at that but also someone very loyal to his friends like we will discover. I loved how serious he was and at the same time of Lenna disturbed it.
I liked the interaction between  the adults with that little boy hurt but still so innocent and how they wanted to protect him.

The story is captivating, plot well build with twists to keep you very interested until the end and most villains get what they deserve^^.

In fact the only thing that disappointed me was the epilogue... in a sense i think i would have enjoyed the book more without it , which isn't usual for me. I do love discovering what happen to characters i love  but in this case... no either i would have wanted it different or not at all but in this case it saddened me so i was disappointed to see the book end like that. However i know some could be happy with  that kind of ending as well so it's really personal.

In Any case i do recommend this book if you want a paranormal romance/ paranormal romance suspense as all together it was quite enjoyable.

Score:  4/5
