Publisher Description

’Tis the season for mistletoe and holly, Santa . . . and suspense. And the gift that keeps on giving is Ice: premier thriller author Linda Howard’s breathless tale of a man, a woman, and a battle for survival against an unforgiving winter–and an unrelenting killer. Oh what fun it is to read. Gabriel McQueen has only just arrived home on holiday leave from the service when his county-sheriff father sends him back out again with new marching orders. A brewing ice storm, and a distant neighbor who’s fallen out of contact, have the local lawman concerned. So he enlists Gabriel to make the long haul to the middle of nowhere, and make sure Lolly Helton is safe and sound. It’s a trip the younger McQueen would rather not make given the bitter winter weather–and the icy conditions that have always existed between him and Lolly. But there’s no talking back when your dad is the town’s top cop. And there’ s no turning back when night falls just as Gabriel arrives–and discovers that the weather outside isn’t the only thing that’s frightful. Spotting strangers in Lolly’ s home–one of them packing a weapon–is all it takes to kick Gabriel into combat mode. And his stealth training is all he needs to extract Lolly from the house without alerting her captors. But when the escape is discovered, the heat–and the hunt–are on. And the winter woods are nowhere to be once the ice storm touches down, dropping trees, blocking roads, and trapping the fleeing pair in the freezing dark.

"OK now this one I got at Barnes and Noble. I buy anything with Linda Howard's name on it. Most of her novels are really far fetched- like the chances of this ever happening are slim to none but who cares- she writes GREAT sex scenes and it's worth it. This story is really no different at all and to me, was pretty similar to Cover of Night which was cheese to the max but again, GREAT sex scene on the mountain in that one. Anyways. So this is about a girl who is taken hostage by meth addicts during an ice storm. And then this guy she knew from way back when is "checking on her" and wow- they are being chased by meth addicts outside in an ice storm. Yeah- it is cheese to the max but what you come to love about romance novels. I kind of hope these characters are explored in a future book but you can never tell if that will happen."

Quotes

  • “Has all the classic elements of a Howard romantic adventure. Survival is the name of the game, as two former teenage foes reunite in the face of deadly danger. All we could ask is that the story be longer.”

    " Oh-too-cliche story, very predictable and hard to get into. Very shallow characters. I never really got to know them nor care for them. "

    " Well this wasn't a BAD book. There was nothing i hated about the book. I enjoyed the over all story. I just felt like i could have been using my time doing other things besides reading this book. I was really disappointed. I've never read anything by Linda Howard so i didn't really know what i was expecting but this book left me really unsatisfied, i need to purge my memory of this book by reading something else.... "

    " I like Linda Howard's style. Her main characteristics of her protagonists are usually the same but it says something about her skill that this doesnt detract from the enjoyment of the book. There is that critical ounce of realism that her storyline has that her characters don't know that their romance is real or that it will last but theyre willing to make a go of it anyway. I like that. "

    " I liked this book. It was pretty short and a very quick read, but I liked that the heroine wasn't dumb and was able to mostly save herself. The bad guys were pretty bad and gross. And since I read the book while it was freezing outside, I could appreciate the setting. "

    " A relatively good winter break read. It's easy to follow, and quick to finish. But there really isn't too much to the story, starts off pretty boring and doesn't have a spectacular story line or ending. It's just a good quick read. "

    " So, the only reason I chose this book to read/listen to was because I needed a book that started with an 'I' for a reading challenge in one of my groups. Being a Novella it wasn't too bad. I liked the action, and I liked the romance, but it was not the best. And I hated the last line. "

    " It was three dollars at a closing book store. What was I supposed to do, NOT buy it and spend my Sunday night reading one of the "classics"?Overall, pretty good Linda Howard stuff, although she tried way to hard to sell the danger of the ice storm. It's icy. I get it. "
