Kiss of Frost by Jennifer Estep Excerpt and Giveaway

Hey everyone! Jennifer Estep's sequel to TOUCH OF FROST, KISS OF FROST released on Tuesday so Jennifer is stopping by to share an excerpt from the book. Enjoy!

Finally, we shuffled to the front of the line and boarded the bus. It wasn’t your ordinary school bus. Oh, no. Nothing but the best would do for the rich kids at the academy. The bus was something a rock star would have, with plush, reclining seats and a flat-screen TV mounted above every third row. There was even a minibar in the very back, next to the restroom, although the profs onboard were making sure nobody was drinking anything stronger than soda—for now. I doubted the alcohol ban would last long, though, since I’d heard so many kids in the library talk about all the wild parties they planned to have before the weekend was over.
Daphne and Carson snagged two spots about halfway back on the bus, in one of the sections where four seats faced one another. They shared a quick kiss before Daphne pulled a map of the ski resort out of her oversize purse. The two of them bent their heads together and continued their previous discussion about which slopes they wanted to try out first.
I dropped into one of the seats facing them. We hadn’t even left yet and I already felt like a third wheel. I sighed. I liked Daphne and Carson together—I really did. They made a cute couple, and they were good for each other. Daphne brought Carson out of his shell, while the band geek calmed the Valkyrie’s quick temper. But seeing them together just reminded me of the fact that I didn’t have a boyfriend—just a mad, mad crush on a guy who didn’t like me back.
As if to prove my theory, Logan stepped onto the bus. The Spartan looked as scrumptious as ever in his black leather jacket, blue sweater, and faded jeans. For a moment I sat up straighter, hoping that maybe, just maybe, he’d see me, walk to the back, and take the seat next to mine. Yeah, I was really that pathetic.
Savannah Warren boarded the bus right behind him, dashing my small, silly hope. Logan stuffed the Amazon’s bag into one of the overhead compartments, and then the two of them sat down together. I had a perfect view of them from my seat. Great. Just great.



Kiss of Frost by Jennifer Estep
Kensington

I’m Gwen Frost, a second-year warrior-in-training at Mythos Acad­emy, and I have no idea how I’m going to sur­vive the rest of the semes­ter. One day, I’m get­ting schooled in sword­play by the guy who broke my heart—the drop-dead gor­geous Logan who slays me every time. Then, an invis­i­ble archer in the Library of Antiq­ui­ties decides to use me for tar­get prac­tice. And now, I find out that some­one at the acad­emy is really a Reaper bad guy who wants me dead. I’m afraid if I don’t learn how to live by the sword—with Logan’s help—I just might die by the sword...
