Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Like Alaskan bush pilot Cort McClain's Cessna heading down the runway, this thrilling entry into romantic suspense from romance author Rowe (Must Love Dragons) starts slowly but soon picks up speed. A mysterious caller tells Kaylie Fletcher that her mother survived the mountain-climbing accident that supposedly killed her entire family. Adventure-phobic Kaylie packs her jewelry, silk blouses and outdoor gear and heads north. Cort, hired to fly Kaylie to her friend Sara's cabin, wants nothing to do with another city-slicker woman like his ex-wife, and Kaylie thinks Cort's an adrenaline junkie bound for an ugly death, but they can't resist each other. When they find their two best friends brutally murdered, Cort realizes only he can keep Kaylie safe from a psychotic killer. The opening chapters and later sex scenes suffer from turgid, overly florid prose, but Rowe comes through with crackling tension as the killer closes in. (July)

USA Today bestselling author Stephanie Rowe is the author of more than 40 novels, including her popular Order of the Blade and NightHunter paranormal romance series. Stephanie is a four-time nominee of the RITA® Award, the highest award in romance fiction. She has won many awards for her novels, including the prestigious Golden Heart® Award. She has received coveted starred reviews from Booklist, and Publishers Weekly has called her work "[a] genre-twister that will make readers...rabid for more."

In additional to her paranormal romances, Stephanie also writes a thrilling romantic suspense series set in Alaska.

Equally as intense and sexy are Stephanie's contemporary romance novels, set in the fictional town of Birch Crossing, Maine.

A life-long reader, Stephanie began crafting stories at age ten, but didn't realize it was her dream until she was an adult. Once the light dawned, she immediately left behind "work" as the world defines it and went to "work" as she defines it, which means getting up every morning with a smile in her heart so she can spend the day doing that which makes her spirit sing.

Stephanie believes in learning to listen to your heart in order to figure out what your dreams are, and then opening yourself to the inspiration that will direct you there. She believes we all deserve the right to enjoy life, and for the ride to be as easy as we want it to be, and that we all should accept nothing less than making our dreams come true.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Kaylie Fletcher's whole family disappeared during one of their many climbing expeditions. All died but no bodies were found. When a mysterious phone call wakes her up in the middle of the night claiming that her mother is alive, Kaylie has no idea if the call is a hoax or not. What she does know is that she must do anything and everything even based on a slim hope even if it means returning to Alaska. Alaska is the last place on earth Kaylie wants to be. She prefers civilization, diamonds and all the finer things of life and safety above all else. When she encounters Cort McClaine, the bush pilot, she knows he will be the death of her. He may be hot, but he represents exactly the kind of life she wants to put behind her. Cort McClaine has nothing but disdain for this groundie. He has had enough of women like her with their fine clothes, their sheltered lives and their put-downs. Both can't wait to be rid of the other's presence until suddenly a phone call from Kaylie's friend warns her off her intended destination. When Cort and Kaylie land, the scene they discover could not be more horrific. Terrified and in need of a place to stay, Kaylie has no choice but to rely on Cort's protection. Devastated by the scene, Cort wants to protect her and stop the murderous villain. In a race against time, weather and the unknown madman, Cort and Kaylie are drawn together with a passion as hot as their fear is deep. Can passion between two people so opposite turn to love? As the murderer's path becomes closer and closer, will Cort and Kaylie learn to trust each other with the secrets of their past? In a race riddled with danger, Cort and Kaylie must face their deepest fears or else, they might find themselves victims of this unknown murderer!Read more ›

I absolutely loved this book! I'll admit that romantic suspense has more of a challenge engaging my interest, because along with a great, well-written story I also want complex characters that make me laugh. Love and laughter go hand in hand for me, but while this book has a darker edge and in-depth suspense, the characters still managed to draw me in, right from the start, anyway.

Despite the pain in their past and the danger stalking them, Kaylie & Cort can't help that how they feel, even if they may have wanted to do so. Life forces them to confront their fears and determine what they really want out of life. This is a book you won't want to put down, so be warned!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
During a family outing climbing an Alaskan mountain, disaster struck killing everyone except Kaylie Fletcher. She vowed never again. However, in the middle of the night Kaylie receives a call insisting her mother also survived. Although she thinks this is some sicko's joke, Kaylie needs to know the truth just in case.

She hires bush pilot Cort McClain to fly her in his Cessna to the cabin of her friend Sara. Cort is attracted to his customer, but avoids her like she has a contagious disease as her city ways and wardrobe is out of his ex-wife's lifestyle of the un-famous wannabes. She also wants Cort, but knows he is an adventurer thriving on adrenaline highs while she is the opposite at least since the tragedy. They soon find their respective best friends savagely murdered and the maniacal killer wants Kaylie next. She believes only Cort can keep her safe, but even he has doubts that thet will survive against a surreal vicious psychopath.

The thrill in this super romantic suspense is the cat and mouse war between a deadly predator and a frightened heroine who wants to hide but has no choice as her adversary is coming for her. The romance between the pilot and the family survivor is more of a detractor from a strong tense tale enhanced by the Alaskan locale that adds a sense of stark lonely beauty just like Kaylie.

I waited to read both books in this series before I reviewed either (there supposedly was a 3rd book coming out earlier this year, but I've yet to see it). I'll review each separately, but my issues with one pretty much go for the other. I love romantic suspense, but it can be a fine line writing one with enough suspense to keep you interested, but also enough romance to make the suspense worth your time-----if you know what I mean. These books both suffered from too much, tacky, over-the-top romance. First, Cort and Kaylie have sex hours after meeting with never any mention of protection (sorry, it's the practical girl in me), and are suddenly already obsessed with each other, and NOT just in a lust way. They start thinking about each other in terms of forever almost right off the bat. It seemed sort of juvenile. And the plot with her missing family didn't make much sense. When Mason was first imprisoned, he had thoughts about something he did getting him in this situation, but that was never mentioned again. Maybe the 3rd book focuses on him in order to explain that further(he and Charity would be my guess). Anyway, this isn't a bad book, I still enjoyed it overall, but only as something to pass the time.

I have to say that I was hooked from the start! I had a lot of trouble putting it down so I could go to bed. The beautiful descriptions of the scenery had me wanting to endure the cold to visit AK. And the characters.....I fell in LOVE with them. Cort has got to be one of the HOTTEST men I have read about in a while. I still have a wonderful mental picture of him in my head, which I plan on keeping! I loved the story and I was surprised more than once while reading it. That is a definite plus when reading a Romantic Suspense. Too often it is way too obvious who the good guys and who the bad guys are and you can figure out the ending before you hit the midway point of the book. Not so with ICE. I cannot wait to read more in this series and get to know the other characters we met.
