Scarlet Blackwell does not disappoint with this short story in the Frozen series. Ms. Blackwell does such a fantastic job with the creation of Marshall and Luka’s characters, and even though the story is short, you just know that the MCs are made for each other. Innocent is book one in the Frozen series. Each book can be read as a standalone because they have a different storyline. The one thing that remains constant is the location, Alaska, which Ms. Blackwell brings to life with the beauty and danger of this frozen land. Can’t wait to see what characters she will bring to the next story.
