Nice and lovely.

Since this was my first read by this author, I really didn't know what to expect. But after reading the first few pages, I was hooked. Despite the slow pace in the middle of the story, I had so much fun reading it.

Henry “Hal” Parker is a sexy, solitary polar bear shifter. He refused the offers from the oil company and told them that he would never lease out his land in Alaska. As a former businessman, he knew very well that a number of people would benefit from this oil inve

A car stranded in the snow brought them together, but love sealed the deal in this short, sweet paranormal romance.

I love Lizzie Lynn Lee books, have been reading them for a few years and I was given a copy of 'Hot Like Fire, Cold As Ice' by the author in exchange for an honest review. Like a lot of her books, this one is short, hot and sweet. It can be read in a couple of hours and like all the books I've read by her, it's overfl

This was a fun little novella full of hot steamy romance. It would have benefited from more background on Hal and Missy plus a longer story to make their connection a little more believable though. Double it with another 80 pages would have fleshed it out nicely. I liked the humor Ms. Le

I've read a lot of books by this author and enjoyed them. Unfortunately this book fell short. I think it ended abruptly and the romance was a little off. The story just ended in the middle without a conclusion.

Disappointment. Just, really, didn't work at all for me.

I read plenty of shifter stories, and plenty of stories that have what is pretty much mate bond insta-love. Sometimes it works, sometimes it can be overlooked, and sometimes it just fails. This was one of those times it fails.

Missy is a lobbyist working for Texaoil and she has been tasked with going to Alaska to negotiate the use of land up there for the company from a reclusive billionaire. However, as a city girl, she is not so great at

A cute sweet read. Hal...or should I say Henry is sorta a recluse and prefers to live in the wilderness. However, he protects something thats been in his family for generations. He's recently taken over and is a billionaire to boot. Melissa or "Missy" she likes to be called is there to convince him to let her company build an oil rig which would benefit everyone. However, before she gets there she gets into a bit of trouble and gets strand

Missy is a lobbyist for an energy company. Her company wants oil right to some land in Alaska and sends he to talk to the owners. On the way there she has a car accident. She is saved by Hal who brings her back to his cabin. Due to a big storm the two are stuck together in his cabin fighting a strong attraction. Missy doesn't know that Hal is the man she has come to see.
Hal is a great hero but I felt that maybe he deserved better than Missy. Of course I don't like lobbyists or people helping co

This is a very nice little story. Hal/Henry is a reclusive millionaire who owns a huge amount of land in Alaska. Melissa works for an oil company who wants to lease the land, so the adventure begins Melissa goes to Alaska to meet Hal, The dialog between characters was well written. I enjoyed reading my first book by Lizzie Lynn Lee and look forward to more. I received this book free in exchange for an honest review.

A short steamy romance and with a moral message. The story had a good theme but I felt that in the hands of a good editor it could have been polished up a bit more. I appreciate that the author tried to bring attention to preserving one's heritage and not selling out for what one thinks as a good deal.

Was okay with the instant love Hal 'Henry Parker' fell for Missy when she was trapped in her car when he came across and saved her. The only bad part was the description of rotten birds in the seal carcass that is fermented, the way is was described did make my stomach turn.

Aww, this was such a sweet story. I haven't found too many polar bear shifter books so I was excited when I saw this one. It's a pretty quick read but it has likeable characters and hot, steamy love scenes.

This was a quick read that I enjoyed saved by the plot alone. The story was filled with cliches, incorrect word usage, unrealistic situations, a reference to Seinfeld that added absolutely nothing to the story and lets not forget about a complete halt of an ending. It was not a cliffhanger...it just ended instead of adding as little as 2 more pages.

When This popped up as an option to read I jumped at the chance, Having really enjoyed a prevous book.
This was a fun read, only downside for me was that it ended too soon, I was left feeling there was more to come.

This is exactly what it is, A SHORT STORY. Only 84 pages.
Therefore everything that happens is rushed and not on what most would call a normal timeline. Could have had a bit more depth and length then would have been 5 stars.
Interesting story and liked the heroine & hero. Just found it strange they have sex nearly straight away with no discussion about safe sex. Not sensible in this day and age. They each knew they were ok but the other didn't.
Sex scenes good but a bit strangely worded. The a

This was a good quick read. I enjoyed the premise of the story about the polar shifters and how they started and all they did to protect them. Hal and Missy make a cute couple so it was nice to see how they get along. I also liked that she didn't play games about the fact that they had known each other for such a short time and decided that he was what she wanted. I could have seen this story with more background on Missy and there were some other things like the rest of the shifters that could ...more

Missy meets Hal after he rescues her from her car after an accident. He falls in insta-love with her as you find in a lot of shifter stories. I don't have a problem with the instant love thing, I just feel like I didn't connect with the characters enough to really appreciate their connection. I did enjoy the book and thought it was a good quick read. I liked the characters and the plot. I just wish the story was longer and more flushed out and that we got more background on the characters.

Thank you to Lizzie Lynn Lee for another great read and this review copy. The story takes you to Alaska and the descriptions of this wild and beautiful country are wonderful. Makes me want to visit , but not so much in winter. Unless you had a furry companion to keep you warm. A Polar Bear shifter and a human lobbyist who would have thought that they would be mates. The story is fast paced and you are rooting for a happy ending for all people of Walapusk including Missy and Hal.

I was given an ARC for an honest review. I really liked this story and the progression of the story. I was wondering where it was going at the beginning but it picks up pretty quick. I like the chemistry of Missy and Hal. The beautiful scenery and imagery the author presented was beautiful. I loved the playfulness of the den and the leader ;) good book and would recommend!

This was a quick humorous read. I love the fact that they used humor in such intense situation. The only issue I had was I wish we had more background on Missy, things between her end Hal escalated so quickly I would have liked for them to get opportunity to spend more time with one another. Overall a good read looking forward to see what else is in store for this series.

Love the King Bears! I was wondering how Missy was going to save the day and hoped it would go this direction. Living in San Antonio Texas, I don't really agree with fracking (sounds like a cuss word, doesn't it?), so I'm glad Lizzie Lynn took the story in the direction she did. Here's hoping this turns into a series!

Once again a short story of 5 chapters. Maybe I shouldn't have read this one so soon after the tiger story by Lizzie as it wasn't like the first book, which is a good thing but I was looking for a laugh with this one too. I'm not saying I didn't enjoy the book just that it wasn't what I thought it would be.

Missy went to Alaska to do a job.
Once she met Hal + found out about the polar bears, she changed her mind.
Hal showed to Missy that there is more in life than Money.
