Life is a cruel and amazing thing. An abandoned baby brings the two back together, and they’re forced to examine the love that has long existed between them. This is a story of pain, scars, and fear. We all have demons to battle. The real decision is who’s in control…us or them?
Shyla Colt grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio, but has lived a variety of different places thanks to her wanderlust, interesting careers, and marriage to a United States Marine. She’s always loved books and wrote her very first novel at the age of fifteen. She keeps a copy of her first submission letter on her desk for inspiration.
After a lifetime of traveling, she settled down and knew her time had come to write. Diving into her new career like she does everything else, with enthusiasm, research and a lot of prayers, she had her first book published in June of 2011. As a full-time writer, stay at home mother, and wife, there’s never a dull moment in her household.
She weaves her tales in spare moments and the evenings with a cup of coffee or tea at her side and the characters in her head for company. A self-professed rebel with a pen. Her goal is to diversify romance as she continues to genre hop, and offer up strong female characters.

As Cold As Ice
Dangerous Creatures Series Book 3
by Mandy Rosko
Genre: Paranormal Romance
As a former hunter, and a paranormal in hiding, Jessica Frost knew of the dangers of being caught.
Well, she’d been caught. Jessica had stupidly revealed her powers of ice and snow to save her friends, and now she was in shackles, in a box, being examined and forced to fight to survive. But she’d trained for this. Jessica had to live long enough to make a plan, to escape. Luckily, she has something in her back pocket.
That plan is Soren Birgir, kind of quiet, kind of cute—okay, gorgeous. He’s a lab rat working for Head Office, studying the creatures brought in, but also a paranormal himself. Jessica can’t put her finger on exactly what he is, but it’s something big and powerful, and one wrong word from her could put him in a box next to hers. Strangely, Soren doesn’t resist. Maybe that crush he’d seemed to have on her had been the real deal after all. Well, that was a downer. He was handsome, and she liked kissing him—really liked it—but Jessica couldn’t afford to get close. She couldn’t afford to be swept away whenever Soren did something that made her heart ache.
Like stand up for her and protect her. The feeling it brought made her weak in the knees. Weak enough to desire him, to want to escape with him. Something that would be entirely impossible. Unless a miracle happened, one person would have to stay for the other to go, and Jessica was determined that it be her, even if it ripped her heart in half to do it. Her powers were over the cold, so it wasn’t a stretch that she could make her heart cold to her feelings long enough to leave Soren behind. Right?
AS COLD AS ICE is the third book in Mandy Rosko’s DANGEROUS CREATURES series. The DANGEROUS CREATURES series contains stand-alone stories about paranormals living amongst people without powers, and can be read in any order.
The DANGEROUS CREATURES series includes:
Burns Like Fire
A Shock To Your System
As Cold As Ice
Let Me Play A Trick On You – coming soon!
USA Today Bestselling and award winning author Mandy Rosko loves writing paranormal romances with werewolves, dragons and people with special powers. She is the author of the Things in the Night Series, Night and Day, and the Dangerous Creatures Series.

Favorite authors right now are anyone who writes dangerous and tortured heroes 😉
