When newly deceased cop Kipp sees Tess on her way to work one morning, he’s instantly drawn to her and desperately tries to get her attention. Tess has gotten used to the fact that she can see ghosts. She’ll help them out when she can but she isn’t about to put her life on hold for them. However, Kipp has some very seductive ways of making her listen to what he has to say. 

Kipp remembers what he was doing before his life was cruelly cut short – chasing a lead on the cold case he was working on. He thinks he got too close to uncovering the truth about the disappearance of Hannah Reid but he needs Tess’ help if he’s going to do anything about it now. 

Trying to convince people of her ability is the last thing Tess wants to do, but she soon realizes Kipp is not going to take no for an answer. She can’t shake him and as she learns more about the case and the man Kipp used to be, she can’t help but feel for the ghost. Her ability is the only way to bring peace to the Reid family, but if she helps solve the case, Kipp will be free to pass over – unless there’s something else keeping him around? 

Supernaturally Kissed is a very enjoyable book with an exciting, unpredictable plot that just draws the reader in. This was one of those stories that I knew I would like before I’d even reached the bottom of the first page. I felt that the style of writing was unique and the author has definitely made a mark on me. The dialog between characters was very energetic, which did make it a little difficult to keep track of who was talking to whom at times. The characters are very likable and passionate, whether working well together, or more often then not, butting heads. I loved the way it ended; the possibilities for Tess’ understanding of her ability to develop and the opportunities for her to put her gift to further good use are exciting. Having learned that this is the first book in the author’s Frostbite series, I am very glad to have read Supernaturally Kissed and can’t wait for the next installment. 

Publisher’s Note: This story was previously published elsewhere under the title Stolen Dreams and has been revised for Ellora’s Cave.
