Mythical ice princess Koori-Onna saves Dr. Darien Calder from certain death in a snowstorm. In return, he helps her escape from her frozen prison in Vivi Anna's "Ice Bound." Killing turns to kissing for Vilhjalmur Frosti, the ice assassin for Old Man Winter. He falls in love with snowflakologist Kate Wilson when he's sent out to kill her in "A Kiss of Frost," by Michele Hauf. Although legends abound in Winter Kissed (3) with two well- written, winter-themed stories, the brief tales and their quick endings are slightly unsatisfying.
