Romance Paranormal

There is an untapped world of magic that any man would covet...

Five years ago, Xavier escaped from the Ofarian Planet. Today he calls a Colorado mountain town home. It’s there he buries himself in his work, swearing off magic and relationships—until a woman threatens every promise he’s made to himself.

Cat has always known she is different. Water speaks to her on an uncanny level, and she channels this gift into beautiful painted waterscapes. Now, a gallery is debuting her work in Colorado—and it’ll reveal far more about her than she imagined.

The spark between Cat and Xavier is enough to throw both of them off balance. Every tantalizing moment sends them dangerously close to a rising flood of desire. Dangerous because Xavier comes to suspect that Cat is an Ofarian—his people’s enemy. But they’re both about to discover a far greater, more malicious power at play...

Re: A Taste Of Ice

Interesting concept!

Well, I like hearing about London and other foreign places in general so any places not in Canada is good for me!

Historical settings are great because we can learn about a period as well as a location. Extreme locations such as Alaska or Hawaii are very interesting, because the environment will affect the plot and characters.

I like hearing about urban settings that aren't the typical
"big" cities. I like Southern cities especially.

No favorite setting - each adds its own flavor to the story.

I'm a fan of unusual settings, as you know, but I particularly enjoy it when the setting is integral to the story. I enjoy feeling as if that story could ONLY happen in that place. Sounds as if you have done exactly that!

I like large Southern cities.

For romance,there are beautiful settings all over. You have beautiful flowering meadows and prairie-type lands, to waterfalls on the other extreme. Sitting along a babbling brook can be romantic, as well as a walk along a secluded beach. All of these examples are dependant upon 2 things - the Author, the way they depict it, and the Reader, the way they interpret it. Have a wonderful New Year!!

I love the story settings. They introduced me to places I have never been or will not even get a chance to go to visit. It is the best way to learn about places and the social environment of these places.
Kai Wong 10:13pm January 1, 2013)

I love settings where I can learn something without any effort.
Barbara Studer 2:34am January 2, 2013)

My favorite type of settings are those that are fictional but have a real feel to them. That way my imagination can take off without feeling guilty that I am not doing justice to a real place.
Annetta Sweetko 5:03pm January 2, 2013)

romance settings anywhere were there is great scenery we can image and tranquility. Paranormal needs to be set in scary places like a cave or something . Not good with geography :(
Danielle McDonald 10:38am January 3, 2013)

White Clover Creek has one of those down home names that can fool you into looking up the place when you're near other towns in Colorado. Love the ice on the cover as it reminds me of the icycles dangling from my gutters waiting for someone to walk by when the weather breaks.
