Book Description

5***** review “This was a brilliant story and I got so involved in the characters, I couldn't put it down. Loved the rich descriptions and the story telling was excellent.”

A terrified woman erases her past to escape her abusive husband. Taking her children, she disappears from Texas only to reinvent herself as a teacher in a remote Alaskan village. She fights to survive the harsh environment, while ever mindful of the danger stalking her.

A complication emerges in the form of her new boss who is unaware of her entanglement and pursues her with a passion. Hungry for a father figure, her young children immediately take to him, but she is haunted by the cruel man who battered her. Can a good man heal her scars and gain her trust?

As she evolves in her new role, she becomes stronger as a person. Back in Texas, her sister draws the abuser's fury and becomes his new victim. When her past catches up with her, she is not the same woman who ran away. She puts her life on the line to protect her children, but will she survive the wrath of a sociopath bent on revenge?

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good February 24, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is my first time reading this author. I was in the mood for a thriller and happened to notice this for free. I got it and I read it in two days. I would have finished it sooner, but work comes first.

I really like the story. It was suspenseful at times, and I grew to love the main character, Rene. I liked how the author based the story around Domestic Violence, which is so prevelant in our society, but people are not proscecuted as often due to the fear of the spouse and children. I will be downloading other books by this author. I look forward to where else she can take me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sleeping with the Enemy February 22, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Rene Desmond is on the run! Deathly scared of her abusive husband Mark, Rene and her sister Maddy concocted an elaborate escape plan from Houston, TX to Sad Horse, Alaska. The temperature might be cold inside the Arctic Circle, but Rene and her two children Seth and Sara found warmth from the very caring townspeople of Sad Horse. And Rene also found herself very attracted to Brett, the town's patriarch and Rene's boss. The attraction was mutual.

Unknown to Rene, Mark was hell bent on finding her, following Rene's false trail to Europe. Finding only Maddy, Mark walked a destructive path of lies and deceit plus assault and battery. To Mark, Rene had to be punished for leaving him and he would not stop until his wife got what she deserved.

Alternating scenes between Houston and Sad Horse and the story being told in several points of view, the readers are treated to a romantic suspense that is worthy of Tom Clancy and John LeCarre. All the characters, including teh supporting ones are fleshed out and thus readers can find themselves living Rene's nightmare while wondering what is going on with Mark's convoluted mind.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lacks Substance March 13, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I seriously don't understand how this book has a 5 star review from 12 reviewers.

The reason I gave it 2 stars was because of the premise. I really did like the beginning of the book. However, the further you got into the book the less sense things were beginning to make.

I'd compare this book to the way a kid writes a term paper/book report. They start out with a great idea and great designs on where they want to go but as time goes on and it takes longer than they anticipated and they're starting to lose focus they rush to just get it done and over with.

I don't understand how Rene's boss fell in love with her so quickly when there really seemed to be little, if any, contact/interaction with them besides him picking her up at the airport and making sure she got set up in the school. Then people start falling in love all around them all willy-nilly. You never really get a feel for the characters because there's no development of them.

The thing that completely did me in and just annoyed me was when her sister Maddy 'sensed something was wrong' and had to immediately 'get her mink and fly to Alaska. Husband, kids and plausibility be damned!' Seriously? If it was a paperback and not my Kindle I would've thrown it across the room.

I really can't be too upset since I got this book for free but the reviews completely threw me. I know they're subjective but seriously a full 5 stars and I disliked it THAT much? Something isn't right there...

5.0 out of 5 stars Thrilling Read February 28, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Running from an abusive husband in Texas, Rene and her two children make it to a small town in Alaska where she hopes the combination of small town and remote location will keep them safe. She hangs on to that belief until she learns her ultra-possessive husband has her sister, Maddie, in his sights, and is using her as bait for Rene's compliance. How Rene keeps all the balls in the air while trying to keep everyone she loves safe, makes for edge of your seat reading. This was an absolutely fascinating read with enough plot twists to keep you guessing until the end. If you're looking for a can't-put-it-down thriller, pick On Ice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! March 12, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Saying good-bye to Mrs. Mark Edward Desmond and hello to the rest of her life took all the strength Rene could muster. A convoluted escape plan set up with the help of her brave sister got her out of the house and on the road with her two children, seven year-old Seth and his little sister Sara. Changing her life and getting away from the monster who terrified them all was her main goal. It took all her courage to ignore his whispered words of killing everyone she loved if she ever left him. She had no choice if she didn't want him to ruin her children's futures like he would. Hugged by her frightened little boy as he choked out the words...I hope he never finds us gave her the spirit necessary to move them all to Anchorage Alaska and start a new life as a schoolteacher for a small mining community. Her new boss, a brute of a man, fierce like a gorgeous blue-eyed 'teddy bear' picked her up and brought her to her new home, a cabin in the wilds where she met warm kind-hearted people, wildlife in their natural setting and a way of life she grew to love. But...her husband's hate never lessened...he wanted revenge, and not just for her but for her sister also. This was a brilliant story and I got so involved in the characters, I couldn't put it down. Loved the rich descriptions and the story telling was excellent.

More About the Author

J.D. Faver lives near Houston, Texas. She writes steamy contemporary romance and romantic thrillers/mystery/suspense. She loves to kill people...on virtual paper, that is. Although she writes daily, she still finds time to enjoy family and friends. She is a foodie and an adventurous cook. Determined to preserve generations of family recipes, she is publishing a series of cookbooks entitled A Texan in the Kitchen.
Gardening is another passion (and linked to the food thing) since she has an orchard of fruit trees and berry bushes/vines in her back yard. Tomatoes and other veggies round out her kitchen garden.
All other interests (painting, drawing, sewing, quilting, crocheting, weaving, stained glass and pottery) have taken a back seat since they require hands-on participation which is difficult if your fingers are always on the keyboard.
An active member of several Houston writer's organizations, she belongs to National RWA and is a member of Houston chapters.
She is owned by two cats and a small, yappy rescue dog. As a former educator and healthcare professional, she is an advocate for children, animals and elderly/disabled individuals.
She would rather be sailing or on a beach somewhere, but if not, you can probably find her with her fingers on a keyboard, pouring word images onto the virtual films playing in her head.
