Book Description

Elizabeth Pennington has come to the war-torn South American country of Callivera to volunteer at a tiny mission. Kidnapped by the local rebels who are more interested in ransom than politics, she ends up at their camp in the Andes where she meets Finn MacGowan, member of the infamous Committee, a covert organization dedicated to destroying terrorism. MacGowan has been held hostage for almost three years, and he's chosen the night she arrives as the night he plans to escape. When he does, she follows him, heading down the steep mountainous terrain with another hostage, the teenage son of a Hollywood millionaire. Rebels, soldiers, traitors and near-drowning follows them on their journey. As they travel from the mountain fortress to a transatlantic freighter, an old cafe in Spain ending in a shootout at a farmhouse in France, MacGowan reluctantly falls in love, and Beth learns that the cynical, dangerous soldier-of-fortune might be worth saving after all.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Last and Best Ice Book October 5, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Synopsis: Heroine Beth is a volunteer teacher in 3rd world mission. She is captured for ransom and taken to a mountain hideout. Hero Finn, has spent 3 years as an involuntary guest of the "Guiding Light" jungle brigade, and is ready to make his escape the very night Beth arrives. She follows him, and he reluctantly takes her and others to safety in a torturous trek through the mountains and jungles that spans several days. Meanwhile, the CIA is trying to capture Finn in order to extract a complicated revenge on Isobel's husband Killian from the novel "Ice Storm".

I loved loved loved this last Ice book! It heavily involved Peter and the other agents from the Ice series, and ultimately tied up all the loose ends in a good way. The only bad part, is that it appears to be last of the Ice books. I wish she'd write more.

Positives:
It didn't have the "I'm gonna kill an innocent" aspect that the other Ice books carried. The hero did threaten to have his way with the heroine, but she knew it was just bullying her to get her motivated to get off a mountain in one piece after they escaped some jungle terrorists.
There wasn't any `dubious consent' issues like the other Ice books, and the seduction scenes were perfect, well paced, and of course caliente!

I loved that the heros picked up another stray kid along the way, just like Killian did with Mahmoud. Finn is so heroic, sexy and just plain action hero larger than life awesome, and Beth is no bleeding heart liberal `save the world' type. She is smart and gutsy and stoic in the midst of crisis and chaos and grief.

Finn: "Then what?

5.0 out of 5 stars Stuart Shines! November 13, 2011
By M. Thao
Format:Kindle Edition
I thought Stuart's ICE Series had ended with Reno's FIRE AND ICE. And when I heard that her publisher wouldn't be offering a contract for more, I was sad, upset, and disappointed. I wanted more ICE. I wanted MORE Anne Stuart. So you can imagine my absolute joy when I to discovered this newest book in the series, ON THIN ICE. Stuart she loves these characters as much as her fans do. Her devotion to her writing and to her loyal fans is the reason she's able to continue the series and share ON THIN ICE with us through Amazon. And for that, I will be eternally grateful to her.

ON THIN ICE is Book 6 (and hopefully not the last) book in the ICE series. It features Finn MacGowan, whom the other Committee teammates have reluctantly given up for dead, and takes place a few years after the last book. I won't get into the plot since it's been more than sufficiently covered in others reviews. What I will say is that this book is not like Stuart's other ICE books. The heroes from the first five books you've come to expect are Stuart's trademark dark, ruthless, chillingly delicious bad boys. The ICE men are killers. They do what needs to be done to complete a job and any innocents who get in the way are unfortunately just casualties for the greater good.

Not so with Finn MacGowan. MacGowan is a return to the heroes seen in some of Stuart's earlier works where black is black and white is white. There's no question who the good guy is. MacGowan is a little rough around the edges with just the right amount of danger but he's also honorable, pulls his punches, and doesn't use sex to get what he wants -- a theme that is prevalent in the other ICE books. This is a nice and unexpected change for the series and for Stuart.

5.0 out of 5 stars WONDERFUL! October 24, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm not quite sure what's going on (if anything) between Amazon and this author, but I find it amazing that an author of this caliber didn't get any publicity on their event pages over the past few weeks. I had to literally search the Amazon website book by book to find out that Anne Stuart had a brand new ICE book out and in mid-September. Unbelievable!!!!!!!! I would have purchased this book immediately the day that it came out. This author is just that good. I also found out from a friend that this book hasn't even been released yet to Barnes and Noble's NOOK which would certainly have given Amazon a leg up on the competition. In any event, this book was just as solid as the other ICE books. No one....absolutely no one, can write like this wonderful woman. Her male characters are "to die for." Please, please, please Anne, write more for the ICE series. I don't care if you have to bring a whole new set of characters to the committee under Peter's leadership. You just can't let this series go. Love you...love your books. I can't wait to read more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved this so very much!! December 5, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Anne Stuart announced about the release of the On Thin Ice, the 6th book in the ICE series when I had long given up hope that there would ever be another book in the 5-star series that I had enjoyed immensely from the minute I picked up Black Ice. For me, Anne Stuart is one of a kind; an author who manages to deliver heroes in a league of their own, passion that absolutely scorches through the pages and a love when it comes, binds the hero and heroine for all time to come. And On Thin Ice turned out to be exactly what I hoped and envisioned it to be as I finished this in almost one sitting, just taking breaks for those essential stuff in between.

36 year old Finn MacGowan is an agent of the infamous Committee, taken captive by the members of the Guiding Light that operates in Callivera, a small war-torn country in South America. Having been held captive for three long years, Finn is looking forward to the night he would make his third and final attempt at escape; the reason that he has been kept alive for as long as he has which still remains a mystery even to him.

31 year old Elizabeth Pennington, the sole heiress to the Pennington Pharmaceutical dynasty arrives in Callivera seven months back and works with the Catholic Charities of Callivera until one brutal day when everyone she holds dear is killed ruthlessly and Beth is taken captive.

Beth's savior comes in the form of the Irish man Finn who makes no secret of the fact that he would willingly leave her behind if it would mean an easier escape for him. But from the very first moment these two opposites are pitted together, Finn has a hard time acting the part of his usual cold and ruthless self around Beth who stirs his senses and literally sets him afire.

More About the Author

I've been writing since the dawn of time. A child prodigy, I made my first professional sale to Jack and Jill Magazine at the age of 7, for which I received $25 (admittedly my father worked for the publisher). Since then I've written gothics, regencies, romantic suspense, historical romance, series romance -- anything with sex and violence, love and redemption. I misbehave frequently, but somehow have managed to amass lots of glittering prizes, like NYT, PW and USA Today bestseller status, Lifetime Achievement Award from the Romance Writers of America, and a decent smattering of Romantic times and RITA awards.
I live on a lake in Northern Vermont with my incredibly fabulous husband. My two children have flown the coop, but the three cats do their best to keep us from being lonely.
In my spare time I quilt and play around with wearable art, and the rest of the time I write write write. Apparently women of a certain age get a rush of creativity, and I'm currently enjoying it. Too many stories to write, not enough hours in the day.
