First Kiss Before Frost by Jennifer Bernard is now LIVE!
A sexy standalone in the fan-favorite Lost Harbor, Alaska series
After a heartbreaking loss, Lulu Spencer-Bennington is on a mission to live her life to the fullest. Dancing her way around the world on a cruise ship is a great start. Hiding in a small Alaska town, staying off a criminal’s radar, probably wasn’t what her beloved mum had in mind. Fortunately, she’s stumbled across a sexy fisherman willing to help. So maybe he doesn’t quite know what he’s in for…but Lulu’s hoping to be out of town before he finds out.
Tristan Del Rey has always been a natural leader—but a recent fishing accident has sent his confidence reeling. He’s no hero, no matter what his fellow Lost Harbor fishermen think. Even so, he can’t turn away the funny, feisty dancer he finds on his boat. He’s determined to protect her no matter what it costs him. As for anything more personal, the best he can offer is some temporary fun. That doesn’t stop the luscious, long-legged Lulu from high-kicking him right in the heart.
Between a dangerous enemy, family drama and the fast-approaching winter, Tristan and Lulu may find their hearts’ desires where they least expect it…starting with a first kiss before frost.

Review Copy Provided by Author
First Kiss Before Frost is a cute addition to the Lost Harbor series. This stand alone read features fishing captain, Tristan, and stow away/dancer, Lulu.
The story line here is layered. There is intrigue, a dash of romance, and a big heap of personal reflection/development. After a bit of a slow start, I enjoyed how things played out for both Tristan and Lulu. I appreciated the time they spent getting to know one other and truly develop a bond.
From a character standpoint, these two were both interesting. They came together when both were wounded in different ways, but still managed to be likeable and people that I found myself rooting for to figure things out.
This is very much part of a series and as such has a fairy large supporting cast. Ms Bernard does a good job of balancing the central Tristan/Lulu storyline with keeping loyal readers up to date on activities in the larger Lost Harbor world. If you have been reading from the beginning, you will see familiar names and be glad to catch up with friends. If you are new to Lost Harbor (or an occasional visitor like me) there are just enough references to other people that I am curious to read the books I’ve missed!
