I received His Frozen Heart in return for an honest review as part of the tour hosted by WordSmith Publicity. Candy and Libby have just graduated from high school when Candy gets the news her parents are moving to New Mexico and leaving her the house to rent. At least she won’t be alone while going to school she will have her best friend Libby by her side. Fast forward 21 months later the girls are struggling to pay the bills as well as eat. Candy is working three jobs and going to school full time. At least Libby is a shark when it comes to pool and is able to win money for groceries that night but neither girl knew at the time their lives would change forever.

Candy is attacked at the gas station the only thing saving her was the fact that she was behind bullet proof glass. Her roommate Libby is beaten and may not come out of the coma and a pair of mad men are hot on her trail. When Candy remembers that she saw a guy from high school at the bar she looks him up only to find it wasn’t him and old memories come flooding back. Will Candy find more than just a blast from the past in Dave? What about the guys who are stalking her?

I love Candy from her name to her personality in the novel she may have issues but she knows when she has a good thing. Libby may spend most of the novel in a coma but what we do see of her I liked she worked perfectly as a best friend for Candy. Than we have Dave he’s kind of perfect for Candy granted he has his own issues but we all do and she’s exactly what he needs.

I’m a huge fan of Nancy Straights Centaur series so I had super high expectations for His Frozen Heart and she exceeded my expectation. The story is an intricate mix of romance and suspense to create a captivating novel that I was unable to put down. I took this book with me everywhere so every free moment I found had me reading. The characters are easy to connect with you can’t help falling in love with Candy and Dave they just felt so real. The story is beautifully written it stole my heart and left me with happy tears. I honestly didn’t expect to love His Frozen Heart as much as I did because I can’t imagine the author creating a better book than the Centaur’s that I love but this one is WOW. It kept me on the edge of my seat in an emotional roller coaster but it showed the sweet side of young love. I just loved everything about the book and can see myself reading it again in the future. His Frozen Heart is a must read!!!!

Author Bio:

I LOVE Starbucks’ White Mocha Latte and Mountain Dew, (but not together). I have a lead foot so I set cruise control when I drive, even in 25 MPH zones. I almost never win when I play Angry Birds, but have my 9 year old close, so he can clear the hard levels for me. I grew up on a farm and am opposed to eating fresh chicken (not opposed to meat - just opposed to any meat that was alive a few hours before lunch). I am a huge fan of the show, Big Bang Theory, on CBS. I share my life with two fantastic sons, three rotten dogs and a husband that I adore.
