For everyone who enjoyed The Darkest Frost by Tanya Holmes, she's now added an Epilogue. To get this freebie....

Though I didn't think an Epilogue was necessary, I loved finding out where they're at six years later ....:))

This is Volume #2 of a 2-part book. Volume #1 must be read first.

My fifth five-star rating of the year goes to The Darkest Frost: Volume 2 by Tanya Holmes.

The Darkest Frost: Volume 1 must be read prior to Volume 2. I'm all for reading out of order, but I honestly wouldn't recommend you to do that with this two-part serial. These guys will already shake up your brain cells with their sexy presence (and story line) without adding more confuzzlement due to your possible reading out of order. You've been warned.

I spent my weekend completely wrapped up in this two book paranormal series by Tanya Holmes. This new to me author exceeded any expectations I had going into the conclusion of this two book series. She managed to take a good story line (book one a solid 4 stars for me) and throughout the pages of this book she brought it over the line directly into epic and unforgettable read territory!

This 2 part series is so damn good,especially for 2 of the sexiest twins ever...I wouldn't know who to choose

Well,I've just reviewed book one,which was brilliant and this is even better.Yes I'm totally gushing about this series.It's definitely one of the best I've read.

This one picks up where book one ended and Denieve finds herself in turmoil as throughout the book she learns more about Braeden and Xavier(swoon).
She knows Braeden is being secretive and is confused by her feelings

The second installment of this two part serial was just as fantastic as part one. I've always enjoyed a good PNR, but I get tired of the same old stuff being redone over and over, so in a way me and PNR haven't been on the same page for a while, but The Darkest Frost reminded me of why I first fell in love with this genre.

Loving the flame that tames the sword.

An original plot, that was equal parts suspenseful and sexy. A story and characters that had me completely captivated. I know I say t

5 - "With you I will go." Stars!

The biggest compliment I can pay this book(duology) and the author, is by saying that it is unlike any other story I have ever read, or am ever likely to read in the future.

Tanya Holmes pretty much has done it again with the second (and final) instalment in this series, in that I cannot really say too much about the story, because it is all essentially one massive spoiler, it pretty much starts, where the last book left off, and the pace of the story is pretty fa

4.5 stars. Indeed.

Ok. For me, who is not a big fan of PNR, this worked. Why? I don't know. Really original storyline. Interesting characters. Some eye-rolling moments with what was going on but overall a solid read.

The job seems simple enough at first: go undercover and catch her best friend’s killer. But psychic detective Denieve Knight gets more than she bargained for when she enters Dr. Braeden Frost’s estate as a “housekeeper.”

She's supposed to be sleuthing, not falling under the sp

This is part 2, the conclusion, of a 2-part series. Part 1 MUST be read prior to part 2.

Now, that's the way to end this series!
Book 2 of TDF literally picks up where part 1 left off. There is no breathing room here, so refresh your memory of how things were left if you need to. At the conclusion of book 1, there were very many unanswered questions. Denieve( Danielle ) is confused, alarmed and very much a slave to the tumultuous sensations brewing within her. It's like her heart and min

This was a great two volume series, and just so refreshing to have a unique paranormal romance. My only complaint would be that sometimes it felt like there was too much information to swallow!! I would find myself overwhelmed with all of the info. Probably just me, I must have a small brain capacity..LOL! I definitely am impressed with Tanya Holmes writing, and face it; she must have a brilliant mind to come up with a story like this! Seriously, it was a very complex storyline, and

I picked this 2 part serial up on a whim after reading two excellent 5 star reviews. Was it as good as the reviews said it was? You bet it was!

WOW!!! What a trip!!! Every question you had here is answered! And What an answers they were!

A fantastic conclusion!

I don't want to spoil, but I must say that while the first book is more mystery this one is more paranormal. Not vampire style or shifter paranormal, but paranormal all the same!

I love stumbling upon new authors and giving their books a go. I call these my little GEMS!

The Darkest Frost series was a recommendation from my good friend Mo and I am thrilled to report that I truly enjoyed Tanya Holmes writing and I absolutely loved these two books. I’m looking forward to reading more books from her.

It is a two book series and I decided to write a review after finishing book 2. The way the story unfolded within these

Along the way, I’ve encountered the so-so, the good and even the great but I can count on one hand how often I’ve read a book that got me so perfectly!

The Darkest Frost Volume 2 is the second and last book in a two book series of the same name by author, Tanya Holmes. I loved part one SO SO much. When I finished the first book, I needed to have the second book. It was all I could think about for days. I was so anxious to start reading that I refreshed my kindle probably 5 times waiting for my review copy to get synced. And then I proceeded to ignore 3 other days of

Let me start by telling you right up front that I am the editor of both Volumes 1 and 2 of The Darkest Frost. I also edited Tanya’s debut romance, Within Temptation. I edit fiction full-time and I edit lots of it, but I don’t always have the opportunity to edit works that have the potential to completely blow my head off. I thought Volume 1 was mind blowing enough. Little did I know that The Darkest Frost, Volume 2 could be even more powerful. It’s books like this one that make me love my job—wh ...more

After reading 'The Darkest Frost, Volume' I knew I had to read 'Volume 2'. This is one of those stories that stay with you after you've read the last page. 'Volume 2' blew me away. The only reason it took me twice as long to read it was due to that dreaded thing known as a 'job'. Oh how I hated that I couldn't read it in one or two sittings.

Book 1 hinted that we’d have two heroes. Book two confirms it. So we have the mysterious Dr. Braeden Frost:


And his crazy but sexy as hell twin Xavier Frost:


Book two picks up right where Book one left off. Remember this?


And Deni doing this?


So right after that happened, she goes hiding in her room.


Meanwhile Xavier has a temper tantrum because he’s a brat, and he’s sexually frustrated, and Deni won’t let him in her room, and he’s pissed at Braeden for manipulating him.

I'm not much for picking up paranormal reads anymore these days. I only picked up this series because I had so many friends on here who absolutely adored it, so I figured what the heck, and dove in. Wow, I'm so glad I did! I had forgotten how hot paranormal stories can be. And this one was scorching!!!

This is one of the most amazingly written works I have ever freaking read. EVER. EVER-EVER.

Tanya Holmes's ability to engage readers is incomprehensible; authors everywhere WISH they were this addicting. This review is difficult for me because I have this deep-seated fear of giving it all away, so I won't. I will say that the characters are written so perfectly that as a reader, you feel everything they do - you don't read about it, you LIVE it.

She has gushed and gently prodded me, and once I had time in my reading schedule, so I finally had the absolute pleasure of meeting Dr. Braeden Frost and his brother Xavier.

Okay. Wow. I liked the first one a lot, but I LOVED this one. Fantastic. The author did an amazing job of tying up all her loose ends. This was plotted pretty perfectly. I got more of my Xavier, got a little of Braedon, and... better yet... Ian!

My only complaint would be that the end felt too sudden. This could just be me, but I felt like I wanted more time with Ian since we had barely just gotten to see him. But even without that, I feel like this is a solid almost (barely-just-shy-of ) five-st

This one was even better than the first book. My hands are tied here as I can't say anything without spoiling the plot away.

Best thing about this book: how the author twisted around almost every plot point and played with the readers' expectations. I wish I could discuss how clever some parts of this book were but I can't do it without giving anything away.

Suffice it to say, it's well worth reading.
WOW! What an awesome ending to an amazing serial. In the first book (Volume 1) I was given all the clues but,Tanya Holmes gave me all the answers in this book (Volume 2). It was like BAM, then BAM! Again—there it is and, no, you will never guess what happens, and yes, Holmes blows my mind with Denieve, Braeden and Xavier's story. The best threesome I've ever read.
