Blizzard is a quick erotic read about Mandy, a businesswoman, snow bound at a rest area on her way home from a work-related conference. Sexually frustrated, Mandy doesn't think twice about propositioning Jack, a sexy stranger she meets in the rest area food court.
I was pleasantly surprised with this book. For such a short story, there is definitely no shortage of steam between these characters. I found it incredibly impressive that the author could create such well-developed characters and such an intriguing story, not to mention a surprise twist, in such a quick little
novella. What begins as a sexy sordid tale of two strangers contemplating how to wait out a snowstorm, the book ends in a twist I certainly did not see coming. I adored the dialogue between the characters. At first, I found it a little awkward how forward Mandy was in her approach with Jack but as the story unfolded, I decided that it all really worked perfectly with who these characters are and where their story ended up heading.
For an erotic read, the story was just steamy enough to push some comfort limits, without going too far. Readers like myself that appreciate some heat between the sheets... or in this case, the seats... will definitely enjoy Blizzard. I certainly did.

This story was on fire! I wish I could tell you why but that would take all the fun out of it. This
satisfied my need for romance, sensuality, and smoking hot sex. I mean is there any other kind? Ms. Kincaid is like a lyricist. Her carefully chosen words set the mood beautifully.
I adored Dagney who was not your typical Succubus, and her smoldering hero. Not a bad ass like her older sister, or an ethereal like her younger, she’s longs for something more than a wham-bam-thank-you ma’am. Valentine’s Day is around the corner, and just this once she wants more than sex. Haven’t we all been there… sans the demon part. When a run in with arousing paintings turns her world upside down she runs for One Night Stand, a dating service sure to make her every dream come true.
Max Raine is delicious, dark, and sinful. Like chocolate with chipotle sauce. At first I wanted to eat him up, and next I was contemplating Vegas. What you never wanted a fictional character? Lol.
Frost was a phenomenal read I highly recommend.

Taryn Kincaid has written a regency period romance novel with a large amount of sexual tension, her words flowed easily and her descriptions were well thought out so the reader can visualize the scenes around this story. Her writing was so good she made me laugh and want to cry all at the same time. This novel makes you feel the passion and the need between Emma and Adam.
I rated this story 4 because I wish it would of been more fleshed out in some scenes. The epilogue was great and answered my questions to what happened. I love when an author gives us readers a quick view of what the future holds for Adam and Emma. This story was tastefully written and Taryn Kincaid is a wonderful writer.
The wind blew off the sea, moaning and wild, buffeting the man pacing the cliffs.
Hidden by a wall of rock, Emma Whiteside shielded her eyes against the bite of salt spray and continued to watch him, as she did every dawn.
Today, she thought. Today she would approach him at last. Confront him. Give him the royal tongue-lashing he deserved. She had nothing left to lose, after all. And she might not have the opportunity tomorrow. Or ever again.
The things I will say to you, Riverton, will peel the skin from your bones and lay you lower than anything Napoleon's Grande Armée had to offer.
A small voice nagged Emma from within, the advice reasonable considering her current dire circumstances. Better to seek the man's aid than chide him. But she snapped her mind closed against the unwanted counsel. The viscount was the last man on earth she'd ever ask for help.
Grief chilled her, numbed her heart, deadened the tender feelings she'd once had for him. Only her need for vengeance broke through her frozen emotions now. She longed to set Riverton in his place, however little effect her words might have on a man so impervious to remorse.
But once again Emma could neither confront him nor beseech him. The evidence of his stiff-necked pride—and her own—continued to hold her back with as much force as if an unseen hand pressed down upon her shoulder. She glared in the man's direction, as if it were his hand oppressing her.
Fierce gusts punished him, impeding his tortured progress. Pain twisted his handsome features but he confronted the gale without flinching. A tiny chip splintered off from the ice sheath encasing Emma's heart.
How do you bear it, Riverton? Are you made of stone?
She knew he was not. She saw the agony against which he fought, the stalwart way he pushed himself onward, despite the uneven gait that hampered his progress.
A cold blast of wind whistled past, ripping the hood of Emma's cloak aside, whipping her hair against her neck. The frigid current stung her eyes, wringing reluctant tears. She blinked the moisture away and rubbed the damp trail from her cheeks.
No tears, she instructed herself. Not for him. Never for him.
Riverton wore no coat or cravat. His linen flapped about him, white shirttails torn from his trousers—an unlikely flag of surrender when he refused to give quarter.
Did you stand so against the French?
Emma could think of no oath dark enough to curse a man so remarkably stoic. She envisioned him in her mind's eye, saber raised, hastening up and down the lines, shouting at his men to hold: Major Adam Caldwell, Viscount Riverton, at his most courageous.
She shuddered, conjuring the brutal attack that haunted her grimmest moments, the scene clouded by smoke and thunder, blurred by the limits of her grief and imagination. The battle where her twin had fallen, belly pierced by an enemy bayonet.
Michael admired you so, Riverton. I will never stop blaming you. 'Tis time you knew it.
Anger burned within her breast, bright as her love for the viscount once had.
And yet...her gaze swept him again, lingering on the trousers that molded his muscular thighs, the loose shirt that emphasized the breadth of his shoulders. 'Twas but the vicious wind that stole her breath, she told herself.

After five years of taking care of her ill mother Kelly finds herself at a loss after her death. Unsure of where to begin to move forward she’s falls into a funk until her best friend and co-worker shows up and whips her back into shape. Her first step back into life is a new facebook account. With a little courage and a bit of luck her friend request to child hood crush Brandon is accepted and a connection is made.
Brandon is newly divorced, and ready to explore life on his own. He remembers the red headed girl with bright green eyes vividly. One message leads to another and as the excitement builds he begins to consider she may be the truth path to his happily ever after.
The connection of two hearts, regardless of distance or obstacles that may block their way. Ms. Chevrestt had me so engulfed in the world she created I read this book in one sitting. The lead heroine Kelly was an inspiration as she overcame childhood bullying, and the preconceived notions of what it means to be a person with hearing impairment. I learned new things as I fell in love with Kelly and her beau Brandon who was a once a school girl crush. Their romance was honest, and sweet; but it didn’t lack in passion. If you haven’t read this one yet, I highly recommend you pick it up.
A Facebook Affair really reminds us what true love is all about.
