September 4th 2007

Nalini Singh explores new heights of sensuality, returning to the world of the Psy – where two people who know evil intimately must unlock the good within their icy hearts…
As an Arrow, an elite soldier in the Psy Council ranks, Judd Lauren was forced to do terrible things in the name of his people. Now he is a defector, and his dark abilities have made him the most deadly of assassins – cold, pitiless, unfeeling. Until he meets Brenna…
Brenna Shane Kincaid was an innocent before she was abducted – and had her mind violated – by a serial killer. Her sense of evil runs so deep, she fears she could become a killer herself. Then the first dead body is found, victim of a familiar madness. Judd is her only hope, yet her sensual changeling side rebels against the inhuman chill of his personality, even as desire explodes between them. Shocking and raw, their passion is a danger that threatens not only their hearts, but their very lives.


~ 5 Amazing Stars! ~

I love this series! Each book has pulled me in from the first page and by the end I am wanting more. I enjoy the in-depth development of the world and characters that Nalini Singh has created. One race of non-feeling arrogant beings and the other a passionate and loving race.
“Caressed By Ice” focuses quite a bit on the technical fact of the Psy and what makes them tick. We learn so much more about the Psy mind then we do in the first two books. 
Judd is cold, calculating, and clinical. Brenna is still hurting from her near death experience and her emotions are all over the place. Judd and Brenna’s story is very different from the first two books in that this one deals with Brenna’s healing and Judd’s secret life. 
Once the two finally slide into their own intimacy the mating was quite sensual and the anticipation of what was to be left me wanting that mating bond to occur and for them to overcome the barriers they have. It was well worth the wait to finally see them come together sexually. It was passionate, loving and Judd no longer is the ice man, but a man on fire when it comes to Brenna.
This series “Psy-Changeling” is unique and smartly written. I enjoy the authors writing and look forward to continuing the series and seeing what happens with all the interesting characters she has brought to the table in this fascinating world.

**Updated Note: I own the eBook, Paperback, and Audio versions. 
Audio Oct. 2017: I really enjoyed the audio for Caressed by Ice. I’m still having some issues with the male voices, but they are growing on me. Judd is one of my favorites and watching this Man of Ice melt is always a pleasure. The story was just as powerful and enduring as the first time I read it. I recommend the audio for the Psy-Changeling series.**
