Reviews for Melting Ms Frost
5* Goodreads review from Christine
“Just fantastic!!! I saw people raving about this on twitter a while back and am so glad I took the plunge!!! Aidan, our cute Irish hero falls for scary Ms Frost, his boss. A lovely romantic read, that hits all the right spots and totally stands out from the crowd.”
5* Amazon review from Ms Sharon Elliott
“I loved this! Hot, sexy, smart, even funny at times, Melting Ms Frost was so much fun to read. Ice-maiden Annabel Frost meets Aidan Flynn when he starts working at the restaurant she manages. There is an instant attraction between them which she tries to fight leading to plenty of sexual tension! The whole book is a game of sexy cat and mouse, the chemistry between Annabel and Aidan really well-written and Kat Black teases the reader along brilliantly. Highly recommended!!”
5* review from She Loves to Read book blog
“I don't know how to start this review! All I know is that this book is one of the best I have read this year in the 'erotic romance' genre. Bloody hell. If you want a book that knocks 50 Shades well and truly out of the park then this is it…”
5* Amazon review from Fabulous Book Fiend
“wow! I was hooked into this book right from the word go because it dumps you right in the action, right into the sexual tension that exists between Annabel (Ms Frost) and Aiden, the barman at the restaurant she manages. The build up of this sexual tension continues all the way through the novel and is the key element holding this together, but don't be fooled into thinking that this book is void of any other storyline, oh no. This is an action packed novel full of drama, intrigue, and yes, some very very steamy sex scenes. I would go as far as to say. Some of the best sex scenes I've read this year!”

Excerpt From: Melting ms Frost hursday, 8.36 p.m.
‘Let’s get to work then,’ the redhead in the razor-cut skirt suit snapped, pivoting on her heel to bring an end to the pre-dinner staff meeting. Without so much as a glance to the left or right, she marched off towards the kitchens and the office space beyond, leaving the click of her strides to cut through the silence blanketing the restaurant dining room in her wake.
From where he leant back against the glossy expanse of the lacquered cherry wood bar, arms folded over his chest and one ankle crossed in front of the other, Aidan Flynn kept his features schooled and gave her retreating form an appraising once-over. Starting at the tightly rolled twist of her hair, he ran his gaze past the rigid set of her shoulders to the purposeful swing of her hips – then followed the long line of her legs all the way down to the soles of her spiked black stilettos before releasing a slow whistle under his breath.
So. That was the woman he’d been hearing so much about. Café Cluny’s general manager, Ms Annabel Frost. His immediate boss.
Beginning the visual ascent back up over her tailored curves, he had to admit that as far as first impressions went, she made a hell of an impact. Not least because she actually seemed to live up to every word of warning he’d received from his colleagues during the week he’d been on the job. There’d been so many horror stories, so gleefully imparted, that he’d taken a lot of what he’d heard with a good-humoured pinch of salt, suspecting the truth had been embellished as part of some joke to wind up the new boy.
But having just seen the alleged villain of those tales in action for himself, he had to assume that most of the gossip was, in fact, true. Despite having never met him before, she’d treated him with the same cool indifference she had the rest of the staff, singling him out only when he’d spoken up to make a point of introducing himself – and only for the shortest and sharpest of exchanges. Even fresh back from a week’s leave, the only chilled vibe Ms Frost was giving off was an eyebrow-icing arctic blast.
She was stunning too, no question. That striking ruby-red dye job and matching lipstick lent her a vibrant air severely at odds with the glacial personality that characterised her name to a T. It had been a good thing she’d demanded the room’s undivided attention when she’d swept in a short time earlier, as he doubted he’d have been able to drag his fascinated gaze away from her even if he’d wanted to. From what he’d been admiring of her alabaster complexion and green eyes, he’d bet his boots there was a natural redhead lurking beneath all that cosmetically manufactured armour – because armour was exactly what that polished and prickly exterior represented, he had no doubt. There was more to Annabel Frost than met the casual eye, and just what it was she was trying to hide behind that tough outer shell had him intrigued.
