Kieran, Jubilee, Sean and Nicholas team up to track down a serial killer working in a Mexican red-light district. It’s a dangerous assignment because this guy thinks he’s a modern day Jack-the-Ripper, mutilating women just like the original. Sean's next assignment is with Trace. They're assigned to protect a witness and while in transit, their car is almost carjacked, so it’s danger and business as usual for the four Marshalls at work.

Things are in turmoil with Kieran and Jubilee’s adoption of Juan stalled and someone they trust trying to take him away from them. It puts a strain on the relationship between the two couples and for awhile puts their working relationship in jeopardy, too. Can the couples weather the troubles facing them or will it destroy everything they care about?

Winter Frost is the newest release in the Orgasmic Texas Dawn series and because of the recurring characters and ongoing plotline, the books should be read in order.

This is another nice addition to the family of books. It’s entertaining, full of tension, has lots of danger, plenty of conflict and the feelings of hurt and betrayal is off the charts. I admit it. I’m shocked at the turn of events regarding Juan’s adoption. The breach of trust caused by these individuals and experienced by Kieran and Jubilee is jaw-dropping. These twists are nicely developed and cause repercussions throughout the book. Nicely done, authors. 

There’s a rollercoaster ride of emotions in Winter Frost. Yes, Sean and Nicholas are the other focus of this story and their relationship is growing closer, but what’s happening with Kieran and Jubilee’s blocked adoption causes trouble between the friends. The strain in their relationships is believable and how it’s resolved—very nicely done. 

Since this is an ongoing series, there are a few plot threads left dangling for the next book, so don’t be surprised. There are even some hints of what might come next. Watch for Spring Leaves, coming soon.
