About the Author:

Annabelle is a Science Fiction and Urban Fantasy Romance author, that is, when she's not checking homework or begrudgingly cooking dinner. Wife, mother, and creator of alternate worlds, Annabelle has a penchant for that which is outside the norm.

Her Sociology degree did nothing to progress her writing skills, but has given her the ability to construct worlds that exist only in her head and translate them passionately to the page. The time spent studying individuals, interpersonal relationships, and particularly, women, within the constraints of our society led to Annabelle's unabashed ability to talk about sex as it fits into our modern lives.

She's also the author/personality of The Bombshell Mommy at, where she expounds her knowledge of being a vixen clad in sweatpants.

Amazon Product Description:
A decade surviving on her own. Three days with the enemy. Can love conquer all? Cressenda knows how to survive. With her sled dogs as her only companions, she’s spent the past ten years hiding in the snow covered wilderness from the oppressive regime of the Affinity. When a routine trip to civilization takes a turn for the worst, Cressenda is forced to take refuge with the enemy or lose her life to the frozen countryside. But Beckett, a Guard of the Affinity, is more than a man in uniform. His desperate need to help Cressenda escape both- the blizzard and the Affinity- makes her feelings for him all the more troubling. Will Beckett be true to his word and set Cressenda free? Will her heart let her leave after all they’ve shared?

My Thoughts:
     Annabelle Blume has created a cold, hard, lonely world for Cressenda and Beckett.  Cold, hard and lonely on a variety of levels.  The world has changed and they live in an ice-age.  The government has created an existence that would challenge the hardiest of people.  It is in this world that both Cressenda and Becket live, one on each side of the rules.  Each of them believing that they are doing the best they can to live as free as possible.  
     The characters are dramatic and desperate.  We are introduced only to a few people, but they all seem to live on the edge of despair and longing for a better life.  The struggles they face are profound and we live them through the words.  
     This is a heartfelt story of what it means to live free.  Reading this story leaves the reader wondering what is freedom, what would you give or do for love, and what would you be willing to do or do without to ensure your freedom and happiness.
