STONE COLD FOX is the third book in Evangeline Anderson's
series. Reese Cooper is a fox shifter but, despite what this
book's title might suggest, he is anything but cold.
Jocasta "Jo" Ferrell is a woman who knows a lot about being
left out in the cold. After a traumatic attack in her early
twenties, Jo found peace in a community of women, until she
recently got the boot. When Reese finds her at his shed, Jo
is at a pretty low point in her life. Luckily for her, Reese
is exactly the warm, compassionate, and supportive person
she needs. Reese might be my favorite hero in this series
because I love a strong and sexy hero with a sweet side.
There are a few sources of danger in STONE COLD FOX,
including creepy Skin Walkers, and a thing Jo refers to as a
shadow creature. Magic, in this story, is used for both good
and evil. Even with all these things lurking in dark
corners, one of the biggest obstacles to Jo and Reese
getting together is Jo's emotional baggage when it comes to
men and her trust issues. Evangeline Anderson makes Jo a
flawed and greatly sympathetic character. She holds up her
vow of chastity as the main reason she tries to resist
Reese's charms, but it's evident that Jo's other issues
are the biggest reason for her caution.
Reese is intelligent and tries to give Jo the time and space
he understands that she needs before pressing his attention
on her. He respects Jo's comfort levels as he gently woos
her and gets to know her. Having a gaggle of sisters makes
him attuned to women in a way that some of his friends are
not, and he attempts a sensitive courtship until biological
demands make this couple surrender to their desires.
Evangeline Anderson weaves an erotic spell over her
characters and builds the tension until things get down and
STONE COLD FOX is a story of sexual healing, magic, and one
fine fox shifter. After being a fan for so long of
Evangeline Anderson's Bride of the Kindred series,
I'm happy to discover a fab new series to enjoy. I enjoyed
learning more about recurring character Fiona in this story,
and hope to see more of her in future books. I was glad that
Jo had Fiona to look to as a female supporter, to take the
place of her beloved mentor Miranda. I look forward to the
next installment in Evangeline Anderson's Cougarville
Cougarville's mechanic, and resident Alpha fox, shelters
a mysterious woman who ignites his protective animal
instincts when evil forces try to tear them apart.
Jo Ferrell has been cast out of her home for reasons she
doesn’t understand. The grey streak in her hair is gone,
her body is younger, and there’s an ominous shadow
chasing her. With nowhere else to go, Jo finds shelter in
a shed whose owner she wants nothing to do with—but he’s
too much to resist.
Reese Cooper has never felt a pull towards a woman like
he does towards Jo and his Fox is desperate to claim her
as their mate. After offering her a place to stay, Reese
finds it difficult to resist his beautiful new roommate.
But when dark magic threatens their happiness, Reese will
use all of his strength to protect the woman he loves…if
he’s not too late.
Stone Cold Fox is a fun, sexy, exciting read that will
make readers want to revisit Cougarville again and again.
