Hot Like Fire, Cold As Ice: (BBW Polar Bear Shifter Paranormal Romance) by Lizzie Lynn Lee
Genre: Paranormal Romance/ Erotica
Publication Date: January 15, 2016
A man like him should come with a five-alarm warning…
Vivacious and bubbly Melissa “Missy” Thornton is a career-driven lobbyist on top of her game. She is sent to convince eccentric billionaire Henry Parker to lease out his oil-rich land in Alaska. Before she could meet him, she gets into a car accident and stranded in a snowstorm. She would’ve frozen to death if a handsome stranger hadn’t helped her.
Henry “Hal” Parker likes solitude. As a polar bear shifter, he prefers to live in the wilderness rather than the glamourous life he left behind after his fiancée died. When he helps a trapped Missy from her car, he wonders if it’s a sign for him to finally move on. He can’t get his eyes off her and their attraction is instantaneous.
It doesn’t take long before Missy falls hard for him. Does it matter when Hal forgets to mention he’s a werebear? Uhm, maybe. Regardless, fur or no fur, a guy like him is perfect to curl up with in front of fireplace waiting for the ice to melt…
This was a fun little novella full of hot steamy romance. It would have benefited from more background on Hal and Missy plus a longer story to make their connection a little more believable though. Double it with another 80 pages would have fleshed it out nicely. I liked the humor Ms. Lee injected into the story as well as the backstory. All in all a nice quick story for when reading time is scarce.

Lizzie Lynn Lee was a guitarist, receptionist, executive assistant, tarot reader, boutique owner, and graphic artist before she discovered that writing is her dream job. The advantage is that she can do it in her pajamas and socks.
She’s an incurable chatterbox, heavy metal aficionado, bookworm, digital enthusiast, and a night owl since most of her stories were done in the wee hours of the morning because of her caffeine-induced insomnia.
These days she still plays her guitar whenever she gets bored staring at her computer’s screen or plotting the most elaborate scheme of world domination. Fortunately, she has a chronically short attention span.
