Good Reads Synopsis:
Selene Harper doesn’t know who is she and for that fact, what she is. If she touches someone, she hears all their intimate thoughts. Not so good when you want to start dating. And definitely not good when you are about to be thrown into the world of shape-shifting bears, wolves and wild cats.
Brayden Dillion is a shape-shifting snow leopard. He is the lead assassin of the Glacial Blood pack but has already been told that when he mates, he will be made Beta. That is the problem though. He cannot find his partner. Well, not until he goes to visit his mother and meets Selene.
The Touch of Snow is the first book in the new Glacial Blood series. A first paranormal book from the author, Anna Edwards. It tells the story of a voyage of discovery for both Selene and Brayden as they try to understand what fate has in store for them. The Glacial Blood world is full of intrigue, suspense and a family of friends. It also features a secret that should remain untold.
Family isn’t always blood; it’s the people in your life that accept you for what you are.

I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review
Paranormal Romances are one of my favorite to read so when this became available I immediately jumped at the chance to read it. Snow is a new author for me, but she has the ability to grip your attention with a story from the first words you read. I knew for the first few sentences I was going to love this book and I was right. I could not put it down until I was finished.
A Touch of Snow focuses on Selene Harper. Selene woke up in the middle of Death Valley with no memory of where she came from or who she was. Fortunate enough for her she was picked up by Jane Dillion as she was driving home who has some experience with weird. You see Jane’s husband was a snow leopard shifter, so when she found a girl lay naked in the middle of the desert she thought nothing of it. As time went on Selene began to get accustomed to her surrounding but odd things also began to happen. That is when Jane called the only person she knew who could help, her son Brayden. Brayden is part of the Glacial Blood Brotherhood, a pack of misfit shape-shifters whose bond is stronger than blood so if anyone could figure out what is going on it would be him. However, when Brayden arrives in town things go from strange to just plain out weird for Selene. Brayden has no choice but to take her home in hope that his “brothers” will be able to help them both figure out just what the heck is going on.
Edwards created a world for us in which everyone is equal. It seems like a utopia of sorts compared to the shape-shifter genre books we are used to reading. The love story between Selene and Brayden is one that stands the test of time. We are able to watch it grow and blossom into something more as we go through the pages of the book. As it grows stronger we can feel their love for one another come off the pages. There is also some intrigue as to what is going on with Selene and how it fits into this utopian society the Glacial Brotherhood has seemed to have created for themselves. We are all captivated from page one of this book and are completely immersed into the shape-shifting world Edwards has created. Although this book is not without its own trials, Edwards weaves it all in seamlessly with the love story as to not lose it completely. The two-story lines run parallel and then are even able to join together perfectly to bring us to that crazy cliffhanger at the end of the book.
Edwards has created an amazing world for us all to immerse ourselves in with this new series. I for one can not wait for the next installment!
Until next time,
