Tess Jennings, who has been gifted with the ability to see ghosts, struggles to help the Grand Master of the Animus, Alexander, cross over. She might even have discovered who murdered him, but she has no way to prove it.

Adding to her pile of failures, Tess must accept a harsh reality—she has officially run out of time. The closer she gets to an answer to save her ghost lover, Kipp McGowen, the more she’s realizing she’s been searching for an answer she didn’t want to find.

Tess will have to make difficult choices, and her decisions will lead to consequences she cannot predict. Will Kipp finally take a living breath again, or will Tess take her last and join him in the Netherworld forever?


“I just read the last page of Tess and Kipp’s story and I sit here with this huge silly grin on my face. I’m pretty sure I made the sated ‘ah’ sound too. I can’t even work myself up to feeling bittersweet about the ending of a most favored series because Stacey Kennedy seems to know how to bring one safely through in a manner that leaves me so content that I can’t spare a second for regret.”—Delighted Reader

“SKennedy’s Frostbite series is one of the best paranormal ghost love story I’ve ever read. Tess and Kipp will pull you into their world and they won’t let go til you’ve taken their trying journey with them and celebrate their much deserved bliss together. You can’t help but root for these two, feel their pain and desperation and throw confetti at the end. SKennedy is great in weaving romance, heat and suspense, you won’t be disappointed.”—Talk Supe

“Stacey has somehow created this amazing mixed-genre series that ‘s not just a paranormal romance or urban fantasy, it’s not just a romantic suspense, it’s not just a mystery romance or a ghost story…. it’s all of the above and then some, and each and every book will leave you wanting more.

Eternally Devoted was the perfect end to this incredible saga, and while I am desperately going to miss the series, having had 4 books to laugh and cry with these amazing characters, gasp and get anxious at the incredible intrigue, be surprised continuously by the brilliant mystery, and get goosebumps over the wonderful romance has been an honor.”—Literal Addiction 

If anyone who loves Paranormal Romance with Ghosts are out there, I highly recommend this series. When you start with Supernaturally Kissed (Frostbite, #1) you WILL be hooked” —Paranormal Romance Addict


A mouse scurried in front of my feet. I took a step back and could’ve sworn I moved into a spider web. But after a few fast swipes of my hair, I couldn’t feel anything crawling on me or see a spider web. “That’s it. I’ve had enough. Let’s go.”

I stepped forward when a cold wisp of air brushed over my arm, and I glanced to Kipp as he muttered, “Light off, Tess.”

With a deep sigh of total unhappiness, I shut off my flashlight, and once again, a pitch-black night surrounded me. Kipp thought it was safer for us to move around the yard in darkness since a killer wouldn’t easily spot us.

While it made sense and all, I, honest to God, hated the dark.

However, the moment I followed Gretchen and the others out of the barn, the sound of sirens blaring through the air made me blissfully happy. The arrival of Kipp’s fellow cops meant safety.

As we strode through the yard, the large historical plantation that was the home to the Grand Master of the Animus stood out in the dark night with the porch light turned on. If this place hadn’t been hell on earth, since it only complicated my life more, I might be a tad jealous of its beauty.

A flicker of light came to my left, and I noticed someone that had been bugging me since I arrived in White Castle. Sammy’s hair still looked messy and spiked in complete disorder. He also looked in desperate need of many cheeseburgers to get some meat onto his bones. Of course, that was impossible now, considering he was a ghost.

He gave me his sweet smile and a wave, but I quickly looked away not to engage him in conversation. It tugged at me to keep ignoring him like I had been. However, now, I needed to be selfish. My focus remained on Kipp’s dire situation, that’s it. Every other ghost would have to take a ticket and wait in line for help.

We neared the house and red and blue lights lit up the dark sky. It surprised me to see not only one police car tearing down the long gravel driveway, but at least a half a dozen. The local police force, I assumed.

At the amount of police presence, my heart thumped and skipped a beat. Was the other detail that Max had to tell me about Wayde deadlier than what I assumed? He had seemed almost frantic at first, hadn’t he? He did tell me to get to safety. While I didn’t suspect Wayde was some crazed murderer, maybe I was wrong.

Oh, god…

The car squealed to a stop and spit up rocks. Max jumped out of the car and jogged toward me with his gun out of his holster and in his hand, as did the other members of the cold case squad, including the cute blue-eyed Eddie and the muscular blond, Zach, all of whom I loved like family.

Even if their arrival made me feel protected, dread turned my blood ice cold. Like a mob on the run, a flurry of activity stormed in front of me as cops fanned out. Some police officers went into the house and some headed into the yard, which I assumed was to search for Wayde…or whoever Wayde was.

When Max finally reached us, a deep crease had formed in his brow over his chocolate colored eyes as he asked, “Have you seen Wayde?”

I shook my head and felt sick to my stomach at the deep concern etched into his features. “No one has since last—”

An ear-splitting noise cut me off and had every head, including mine, turning toward the direction of the forest to our left. After which, three things happened simultaneously.

I recognized the deafening sound as a gunshot.

Loud masculine yells surrounded me.
