In Ice by Crystal Jordan
Cobblestone Press
Erotic Shapeshifter/Futuristic
ISBN: 978-1-60088-054-4
Reviewed by Talia Ricci

Jain Roberts crashes out of a cryogenic freeze on an icy mountain.  Naked and in grave danger of freezing to death, she dreams of a huge, bear of a man making her warm again.  When Jain finally wakes up, she’s dismayed to realize that her spaceship has crash landed 500 years into the future on a planet with shape shifting bears and she is now the property of their alpha bear, Kesuk.

Kesuk knows that while he rescued Jain from freezing to death in the snow and ice, she is supposed to be his slave until such a time as her debt to him is repaid.  Not intending to become involved with her, Kesuk’s good intentions swiftly turn to lust when she seems to desire him as much as he desires her.  Vowing to send her on her way, Kesuk doesn’t realize that his future lies with Jain, whether she repays him or not.

Never having read about bear shape shifters, I was at first leery that such a story would appeal to me. Three pages into In Ice, my fears were for naught and I settled in for an extremely wonderful and totally captivating story.  I love how the author made the characters playful as well as sexy.  I thought their emotions realistic and Kesuk’s agony over sending Jain away even made me teary eyed.

In Ice is a captivating read.  I found myself enjoying it very much and I am anxious to see what Ms. Jordan pens for her next novel.
