Seized by Seduction: A Compelling Tale of Romance, Love.

From the moment his eyes meet hers across the crime-scene tape, ex-con turned bodyguard Quasar Patterson knows he has to see the mysterious Dr. Randi Fuller again. She's a renowned psychic investigator who can foresee danger for others, but not for herself. That makes Quasar doubly determined to watch over her-the closer, the better-as she's drawn into a dangerous gang rivalry. 

Both her psychic gift and their blinding chemistry tell Randi that she and Quasar are fated to be entwined. Even as they surrender to the heat between them, there's no guarantee of a happily-ever-after now that an enemy has her in his sights. And claiming a future will take more than Quasar's strength and skill. If he can't risk the heart he's always held in check, they'll both lose for good…

Even the umpteenth time through (and even though, in plot terms, this is the moment when she is basically assuming the role of villain), it’s impossible not to thrill to Elsa’s surging sense of power as she throws off the gloves the late king always made her wear to hide her natural gifts and casts them into the raging storm. “It’s time to see what I can do/ To test the limits and break through,” she sings as she experiments with her long-suppressed talents, culminating in the telekinetic construction of an ice bridge leading to an immense ice palace where she plans, henceforth, to dwell in queenly isolation.

There's a reason "Let it Go" comes in the middle of the film: it's not the final, emotionally mature Elsa we hear singing it.   More...

If you can’t tell, I’ve put a good deal of thought into this five-to-10-second section at the end of a soaring pop ballad in a popular children’s movie. I love thrilling to Elsa’s race up the ice bridge with my daughter, in large part because I love to imagine her feeling that way one day herself: in control of her own ever-growing powers, able to create vast structures she never imagined, at “one with the wind and sky.” But every time that last verse rolls around—the shimmy into the ice dress, the sassy flip of the braid over the shoulder—I hope that when she grows up she remembers the magic, not the makeover.
