My latest release, “A Kiss Of Frost” is a novella featured in the Nocturne duet WINTER KISSED. It’s landing bookstore shelves right now, and only sticks around for a month, so get it while it’s hot—or rather, cool.
Let’s talk about shapeshifter heroes who don’t change from human shape to animal shape, but something very different. Let’s talk about my hero, Jal Frosti, who is the Frost god/faery who is also an assassin. Jal’s natural shape is frost. He is made of frost crystals that shimmer and waver through the air. His minions are frost folk that do his bidding, creating beautiful designs on windows in Northern climes, curling hoar frost across the landscape, and yes, attacking those environmental offenders targeted by Old Man Winter for elimination.
Sounds like a nasty guy, eh?
Yeah, he’s tough, but he’s also looking for love. Warmth. Desire.
Jal can take human shape while in frost form. Can you imagine? A man made entirely of frost walking toward you? Well, you wouldn’t see him, he’d blend into the snowy background. But when Jal touches warm human flesh, he is able to take on human flesh. He’s just like you and I, only a little cooler. The guy is in need of a soft warm touch—but not too long. You think he might melt if he gets too hot? If the heroine’s kisses stir him to a frenzy?
Maybe. Maybe not. You’ll have to read the story to find out. ;-)
So what other kinds of shapeshifters have you read about? Those that don’t shift to animal form. I’ll draw a name from one of the commenters to win a copy of WINTER KISSED!
