Book Description

** Winner of the Gold Medal in the 2014 Global Ebook Awards in Gay / Lesbian / LGBT fiction**

The last time Maggie Campbell and Alexandra Blake worked together, they both received two-week suspensions. This time...it's worse.


Ice begins when a boy is kidnapped from a London park and Detective Inspectors Alex Blake and Maggie Campbell are brought together to work on the case. While their goal is the same, their work ethics are not. Intelligent, perceptive and at times disobedient, Alex Blake does what she believes it takes to do her job. Maggie Campbell has a slightly different approach. She believes that rule books were written for a reason.

Unexpectedly, their dynamics mesh, but when her feelings for Alex become stronger than she wants to admit, Maggie provokes the worst in Alex to ensure that they will never be partners again.

Three years later, fate brings them together again. Their assignment is simple, but a plane crash gets in their way. Now, in the middle of a blizzard, they have to try to survive...and fight the feelings that refuse to die.

4.0 out of 5 stars Unexpected! December 7, 2012
By Jen
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
At $3.99 this book is a bargain. I wasn't sure what to expect, but the blurb caught me and I am very pleased with the result.

Maggie and Alex are both Detective Inspectors in London, but don't let this fool you. This is novel has very little to do with their jobs and everything to do with their relationship. Immediately we are introduced to the tension and animosity between these two women. They are polar opposites in many respects. So once again don't expect anything do with police procedure.

This book reads very fast and is incredibly fun. I never once felt like it bogged down. From the moment the plane went down I was completely hooked and honestly I think my favorite part was the middle third of the book as these women fought for survival. Alex was especially amazing and I loved her stubborn drive to survive against all odds. I thought that the author handled the romance between the characters very well and their relationship developed realistically. There are a few "hot" scenes for those interested in such things. *wink*

I don't have many complaints. I think the editing was good and honestly only noticed a few mistakes. Nothing that I would call overly distracting though. I wasn't in love with the epilogue, but perhaps that is just me. For whatever reason it just didn't click. In fact would have been fine if it just ended at last chapter. But like I said it could just be me, I doubt most will have a problem with it.

I definitely recommend buying this one. I think it would have been worth it at $9.99 so at the price it is a fantastic bargain. Lastly the best thing I can say about this novel is that at about 1/3 of the way through I took a break to buy the author's second book. I was that impressed. Lyn Gardner is on my radar. 4/5

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended Read November 27, 2012
By Anjoka
Format:Kindle Edition
Set against a back drop of survival, this tale involves two very strong minded characters fighting to survive their own mounting feelings for each other. There's not much that they can do about the situation they find themselves in, but battling their own emotions could prove to be more damaging than the snow storm that has trapped them.

The author has done a fine job in setting out the two characters personalities early on, so that we can understand their reactions to situations as they arise. The pace of the story telling is compelling, drawing the reader into the story from the start, so that it's difficult to put the book down, and you find you don't want to. You become invested in the characters and want to see how they cope, not just with the survival aspect, but also with their inner emotions.

Descriptively, the author also hits the right note, by not dwelling on too much descriptive imagery, that can sometimes be too distracting, but keeps it to a necessary level, showing the reader, rather than telling them, of what is going on. This gives the reader the feeling they are actually watching the scenes being played out in front of them.

Ultimately, it's a story of survival and unrequited love that finally wins the battle over both. But what will happen when they are rescued?

I leave that for you to find out.

A highly recommended read & I look forward to more from this author!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent romance February 1, 2013
By Telstar
Format:Kindle Edition
Maggie Campbell and Alex Blake are both Detective Inspectors with the Metropolitan Police Service in London. England. They had worked together on a kidnapping case three years earlier. Although the case had a good outcome, the outcome for both Maggie and Alex was not good.

Maggie is a by the book, black is black and white is white detective. Alex is somewhat more of a hothead with a disregard for rules and regulations. She will do whatever it takes to solve a case, using threats of violence if necessary. This of course, doesn't go down too well with Maggie. But this isn't the sole cause of Maggie and Alex having a fight. Maggie is fighting inappropriate feelings for Alex. Feelings she thinks she shouldn't be having. She's never been attracted to a woman before and has no idea how to handle it. So Maggie provokes a fight. The fight results in suspensions for both women.

Three years go past, both Maggie and Alex take great pains to avoid one another like the plague. That is until the day comes when Interpol requests the services of Maggie and Alex to act as decoys. All they have to do is to take a plane ride, destination unknown.

Unfortunately, nothing is simple and tragically their plane crashes in the middle of nowhere in a raging blizzard. Their pilot is killed. Maggie is really sick and Alex is injured. Alex has to fight against all odds to find a way to keep them both alive. Will she succeed?

This book was an unexpected gem of a find. It was really well written and an absolute page turner from the first page right through to the very last. I simply couldn't put this down until I knew the outcome.

This is a story of survival against a back drop of ice and freezing temperatures.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awsome December 5, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was captivated by the story, the characters, and how descriptive the writing was. It was like I was watching versus reading. Once I started, I did not want to put it down, and now that I am finished, it still lingers in my thoughts. I may read it again, which is something I do not do!!!

Looking forward to more books from this author, hoping they will be as enjoyable!

More About the Author

I have been writing fan fiction for a number of years, and the numerous comments that I received from my readers convinced me to try my hand at self-publishing.

I am an Indie author of lesbian fiction, and although my stories are rated for adults due to the love scenes they contain, I do not consider them erotica. They are romance based, and inside you will hopefully find all the things that make a love story a love story. Attraction, distraction, lust, angst, comedy...and of course, sex. :)

I have a passion to learn my craft and a desire to entertain, but I'm not saying my books are for everyone, because they aren't. I'm not saying they are perfect, because they aren't. However, from the emails and the reviews that I have received, I think I'm on the right track.

Formally from Delaware, I now call Florida my home, and when I'm not writing or working or reading about writing...I'm playing golf. :)
