Bite Size Review: Frost by Taryn Kincaid


Title: Frost
Series: Sleep Hollow #3
Author: Taryn Kincaid
Published: 2013, Decadent Publishing
Tour: Yes, FMB Tours
Format: Ebook provided for review

Dagney Night, a sought-after succubus, is no stranger to blazing hot sex. But as Valentine’s Day approaches, she longs for something more. When oddly erotic paintings arrive for display at her art gallery, arousing everyone who views them, she wonders about the mysterious artist who created the works.

Maxwell Raines, a fire-sex demon, lives a life of solitude and seclusion behind the walls of his compound at Sleepy Hollow, channeling his lustful impulses into his art—until his muse deserts him and his temperature rises past the danger point. He needs sex. Now.


When Madame Evangeline arranges a torrid Valentine’s 1Night Stand for them, will the flames of their encounter be too hot to handle?

"I'm a succubus.  I need sex to live." 

But that's not all Dagney needs.  Dagney is left a bit chilled after all of the empty sex she's had in her life.  She is looking for something with more meaning, a little more staying power.

And Maxwell Raines.... well, he is looking for someone he won't incinerate with his own love.

I liked both of these characters, although I definitely think I leaned more toward liking Max.  I think his story was just a little more tragic than Dagney's, and so as the underdog, albeit sexy underdog, I was drawn to him.

The story was good.  Max is an artist and Dagney runs an art gallery.  He makes art that can literally make you pant.  But honestly, it wasn't as heated as I thought it might be.  So in that regard I was a bit disappointed.  The story itself though, was definitely a good an intriguing story.  I was able to care for both of these characters.  And there was definitely somewhat of a satisfaction in two demons finding love and contentment when they'd resigned themselves to loneliness.

Taryn Kincaid lives in scenic Serendipity-By-the-Sea. (Go ahead. Try to find it on a map. If you do, Taryn will send you a smooch. Also a Nutter Butter.)  She is an Olympic caliber athlete in egg rolling contests and spends a great deal of her time petitioning the U.S.O.C. to introduce fantail shrimp competition. When she's not bungee jumping off the Palisades or parasailing up and down the Hudson River, she devotes her time to caring for her aging pet walrus,  arranging her voodoo doll-pin collection and practicing rhythmic chants.  At this moment, she is busy picking up loose wholewheat spaghetti sticks that spilled out of the cupboard and onto her kitchen floor. Wait. Is that something…sparkly?

  1. Hmmm interesting. I do like the idea of two demons finding love :) You really would think it would be a hot and steamy read with her being a succubus. That's surprising but really sometimes I'm okay with ones that don't have such a high heat factor. I hadn't heard of this one before. I'll have to check it out :)
