Jack Frost will melt her heart this winter.
Seven years ago, Kate Finley fell through the ice into the Winter World and straight into the heart of its king, Jack Frost. Then cold feet set in and Kate ran from the one man who made her feel complete.
Jack let his queen go back to the mortal world to say goodbye but she escaped out of his reach to sunny Florida. Now time is short, and he must convince his runaway bride to give him a second chance to melt her heart.

“I knew…you were meant to be with me from the first spin on the ice,” he said. “Then, when you laughed and tipped your face back to catch the snowflake on your tongue, I knew if it wasn’t you…it also couldn’t be anyone else.”
Frosted was pure wintery wonderfulness!! I... ...more
To be perfectly honest, romances aren't usually my thing. I'll admit, I'm a prude, and graphic s-e-x, I don't really care for. SO, I was really glad to find that in THIS romance, there was none of that (so if you are looking for book porn, try 50 Shades). I love "love". Just stories about people... ...more
4.5 Stars: I love, love, love the cover. Maybe because the cover is so awesome, I wanted to fall for Jack a little bit more than I did.
Kate's side of the story is really well done, but Jack's story felt a tad weak to me. He starts off somewhat immature but in a likable way. Somewhere in the story... ...more
I am an absolute fool for fairytales redone for grownups, and whenever I find one well done, I know the author is a kindred spirit. Jack Frost, adult and looking for his foretold queen, and it turns out immortal men are just as clueless as the regular ones, lol. Seven years these two (adorable) n... ...more
Until Frosted, my vision of Jack Frost was more like Martin Short in The Santa Clause 3, rather than a blonde, sexy hot guy. Jack Frost, an unexpected marriage to a mortal, estrangement, and a runaway bride? I had no idea how this was going to play out when I picked up this book, but it did, and... ...more
This was a short story, so this will probably be a short review. Who new that Jack Frost could be so hot? I expected to come across a story of a chilled Jack Frost that would have been cold both physically and emotionally, but that isn’t what I got. And it made me smile. Jack Frost is a sweet hea... ...more
I really enjoyed Frosted. In the interest of full disclosure, I'm friends with the author and was privileged with the opportunity to read the story early. That being said, here's my review.
Ms. Sparrow creates amazing characters. They have depth, humor, motivations, and flaws. She does such a good... ...more
I honestly can say I didn't know what to expect when picking up Frosted. Hmmm, a story about Jack Frost meeting a girl who falls through the ice and making her queen and then letting her go and finally chasing her down to convince her one last time. Sounds interesting, but can it work in a novell... ...more

So, yesterday I didn't feel like jumping into a novel just quite yet. The last book kind of left me with that unsatisfied feeling, so I decided to read a novella. I'm so glad a I got a chance to read Frosted by Wendy Sparrow.
Well, this debut author brings to us... ...more
This was a great quick read and I could definitely see this developing into a longer book or even a series of books. Kate had been raised by two parents who didn't realize that their loveless marriage was setting in motion a lifestyle for Kate that would almost cost her her heart. She had grown u... ...more
It was an amazing book. I didn't think I would like it so much but I was wrong. It was a book with winter and snow and for that I love it. "Frosted" was a very interessant book and it's the first book I have ever read with winter's king.
This book is about Kate, a girl who fell in the cold water w... ...more
When Kate Finley falls through some thin ice, she never expected to find herself face to face with Jack Frost, let alone married to him. Afraid of commitment, marriage and love, Kate finds a loophole with Jack that allows her to come back to her world. She's unaware that her separation from Jack... ...more
I don't know why, but I seem to have a huge crush on Jack Frost. This version of him definitely encourages it. He sounds like he would give any woman the shivers. This story was a fantastic romance with just the right touch of fantasy. I appreciated that Kate had real problems and issues holding... ...more
Really adorable romance about Jack Frost and his runaway bride.
While I could have used a bit more communication from both of them earlier on (but then, we would have no story!) I can understand both POVs and their issues. Hers are based on a life spent making sure she depended on no one, and vic... ...more
This is a sweet, quick read. Very interesting premise, kind of a fractured Jack Frost story, or an alternate back story. I really loved the descriptions of winter, an interesting take. The pacing was lovely, and moved the story along without being overwhelming. As I often Am inclined to do when I... ...more
Frosted by Wendy Sparrow is a sweet fantasy romance.
Kate has been on the run from Jack Frost for seven years. After she fell through the ice one day, she met Jack on a land she thought would only exist in her dreams. But first she had to die so she could be there permanently. One thing that Kate... ...more
Considering this is a novella, Sparrow does a nice job of creating the story and drawing in the reader. Would I like more backstory? Sure, but since this is a novella, I was okay with what was there. The romance in this is really sweet. Jack Frost is nothing like what you might have imagined. And... ...more
FROSTED by Wendy Sparrow is the first fantasy romance I have ever read. Wendy was truly into her main character’s head. Kate’s description of Jack leaves the reader feeling the intensity of Jack’s eyes as he looked at Kate and the cold running through her veins. More than just reading the story,... ...more
What a great read! I only wished it were a longer book so we could learn more about Kate and Jack Frost, both in their romance and with the paranormal fantasy elements. The magic of winter was a great conceit.
You also have to love Wendy Sparrow's way with dialogue and description - you feel the c... ...more
3.5 to 4 stars
Quick, cute read. Kate had a few character inconsistencies, but they didn't drive me totally nuts. Ending resolution was too easily won, but the pacing was steady and the characters were likable. ...more
This was a great and different approach to the paranormal love story! I love that Kate has real reasons for fighting against her relationship with Jack, and I also loved that Jack had some competition along the way. ...more
That. What the hell was THAT? Completely out of left field a wonderfully perfectly structured little modern fairy tale retelling when I least expected it. Just a lovely way to cap an otherwise dreary day. Brava, Ms Sparrow. Brava. ...more
Cute and simple fairy tale for adults. I've been following Wendy Sparrow on Twitter for ages, and love reading her in the 140-character format, so I've been waiting eagerly to see more. This ebook leaves me wanting yet MORE. :-) ...more
