Waiting on Wednesday (#106): Ice Kissed by Amanda Hocking


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.



This week, I'm featuring:


Ice Kissed by Amanda Hocking
Book Two of the Kanin Chronicles
Publisher: St. Martin's Griffin
Publication Date: May 5, 2015

Summary (from Goodreads):

Bryn Aven has always longed to be a part of her Kanin world.  Though she has no social status because she’s a half-breed, she refuses to give up on her dream of serving the kingdom she loves. It’s a dream that brings her to a whole new realm…the glittering palace of the Skojare.

The Skojare people need protection from the same brutal rival who’s been threatening the Kanin. And being half Skojare herself, it’sa chance for Bryn to learn more about her heritage. Her boss Ridley Dresden is overseeing her mission and wants to help. He’s always been her most trusted friend—but as their undeniable attraction heats up, it’s a distraction she can’t afford. She’s about to discover that the Skojare world is full of secrets, and as she’s drawn in deeper, she doesn’t know who to trust. And matters worse, as she gets closer to Ridley, she can’t even trust her own heart.

Well, I've read Switched, Torn, Ascend, and Frostfire, and liked all of them. I'm excited to read this sequel to Frostfire!
