Is your heart frozen, cruel one?

From USA Today Bestselling Author K Webster, comes a dark, fantasy romance standalone novel!

In a cold, empty castle, a young queen is dying.
Weak. Fragile. Disgraced.
But Queen Whitestone is not alone in her final days.
She has her beloved sister.

Until a wicked king rides onto her land.
Arrogant. Insufferable. Demanding.
King Bloodsun has come with an offer…peace in trade for a bride.
He wants the princess.

The fiery king won’t take no for an answer.
He vows to keep the cold queen captive until she gives in to his demands.

A queen bows for no one, though.
Not even when she’s frail and fading away.
She’ll tap into her strength, protecting the only family she has left.

The king is about to learn why they call her the cruel one…

Elzira, the Cold Queen, inherited her father’s kingdom upon his untimely death. She rules the North Icelands while also lovingly caring for princess Yanna, her half-sister. As the Punisher of the Damned, Elzira has powerful -- yet unrealized -- magical potential. But the queen is slowly dying, plagued by a mysterious illness. Fearful for her sister and her kingdom, Elzira maintains appearances while her light fades further. When King Ryke Bloodsun, ruler of the Souta Volcanoes descends upon Elzira’s northern kingdom he issues a do or die proposition. He’s come for a bride with the ultimate goal of advancing his kingdom and he’s got his sights set on Yanna. In her weakened state, Elzira valiantly fights the match but is ill-equipped to stop the dark king. Bloodsun besieges the castle, imprisoning Elzira in her chambers where he plans to persuade the queen one way or another. Ryke soon wonders, why take a princess when you can have a queen?

Cold Queen is a standalone dark fantasy; a sexy, sinister Frozen. The twisted fairytale world created by Webster is imaginative and well-constructed. The story is immediately engaging and moves quickly. Elzira is both fierce and tender with a vulnerability beneath her cold exterior. Ryke Bloodsun is alpha to the core. Abundantly self-assured, he’s the fiery match to Elzira's frost. Their dynamic is immediate, intense, and off the charts sexy. I found this book wholly entertaining from start to finish. This is my first read by this author, and I plan to explore her work further.
