REVIEW

"Wonderful touching story of two wounded people coming together!"

Brenna Shane Kincaid was just a normal she-wolf in the SnowDancer wolf pack. Normal, that is, until she was abducted and tortured by one of the Psy with telekinetic powers. After having her mind raped by a sadistic monster, Brenna refuses to allow anyone into her head again, even the Psy healers, Sascha and Faith. Even though the healers have released her physically, Brenna knows it will take time to heal mentally from what was done to her. The only person Brenna trusts with "skin privileges" right now is Judd Lauren, a Psy.

Of course, Judd Lauren is no ordinary Psy. Judd was once an Arrow, an elite group of assassins under the direct leadership of Councilor Ming LeBon. When what was left of his family was threatened, they all went to the SnowDancer wolf pack and asked for asylum, which was granted. Even though the rest of his family has adapted to life among the SnowDancers, other than the normal problems of his teenage niece, Judd isn't really a part of the pack. However, the pack does call upon him for his unique skills when necessary. He was among the rescuers when they rescued Brenna and he was present during her healing. Judd refuses to break Silence, because he knows if he does, someone innocent could end up dead. Even though he's not a Cardinal Psy, Judd does have some pretty amazing abilities. Not surprisingly, he was taught to kill using those abilities. He'll never forget the name of the child he killed with his abilities when he was a boy himself. So now he keeps himself firmly in control of his emotions. Unfortunately, his control is eroding the more time he spends with Brenna. But that's not all, someone is targeting Brenna and Judd has vowed to keep her safe.

Is there any chance of a relationship between Brenna and Judd? Can he break Silence without harming anyone? Who is targeting Brenna? Why is someone after her? And most importantly, after the death of Brenna's abductor, will the Psy retaliate?

CARESSED BY ICE is one those books that reaffirm our beliefs that if we care enough, any obstacles can be overcome. Nalini Singh not only gives us a good read filled with danger and all kinds of different things going on, but also a true love story. Even though our hero and heroine are in top form physically, mentally, they're both a mess. Brenna from the rape of her mind and body and Judd from the way he's been trained and the knowledge of what he's capable of doing with nothing more than a thought. Even dealing with these issues, there's more than enough action to keep the story from bogging down. This is a wonderful story and I cannot recommend it highly enough!

SUMMARY

**2007 PEARL HONORABLE MENTION - BEST SHAPESHIFTER

Explore new heights of sensuality in this return to the world of the Psy—where two people who know evil intimately must unlock the good within their icy hearts…

As an Arrow, an elite soldier in the Psy Council ranks, Judd Lauren was forced to do terrible things in the name of his people. Now a defector, his dark abilities have made him the most deadly of assassins—cold, pitiless, unfeeling. Until he meets Brenna…

Brenna Shane Kincaid was an innocent before she was abducted—and had her mind violated—by a serial killer. Her sense of evil runs so deep, she fears she could become a killer herself. Then the first dead body is found, victim of a familiar madness. Judd is her only hope, yet her sensual changeling side rebels against the inhuman chill of his personality, even as desire explodes between them. Shocking and raw, their passion is a danger that threatens not only their hearts, but their very lives…
