Desire & Ice is a MacKenzie Family Novella (series by Liliana Hart). Taking place in Surrender, Montana, we read about Danny Patterson the "newest and youngest sheriff's deputy" and his "Desire", Eliza Brightwell, a former schoolteacher.

While this novella isn't about a MacKenzie, Danny is part of the MacKenzie world as he works for the Sheriff, Cooper MacKenzie (who does make appearances in this book). I thoroughly enjoyed this book and reading about people who we have read about in other book in the MacKenzie series. Christopher Rice does a great job in bringing to life Danny & Eliza.

If you enjoy reading about the MacKenzie's, you won't be disappointed in Christopher Rice's novella. I certainly wasn't!

The MacKenzie family and Surrender are a world created by Liliana Hart, a New York Times best-selling author. An author to date that I have read only one of her stories. I was of the opinion that I could take it or leave it, and mostly that was leave it. It had wonderful build-up at the beginning then fell into confusion in the middle and flat at the end. It appeared the author had an inability to write physical conflict so she hinted it could happen and then it just inexplicably didn’t.

However, this is not a story of Surrender written by her. Now it appears her setting and some of her characters have been handed over to other authors to try their hand at. I thought I’d give Surrender another shot with Christopher Rice’s novella set in Surrender in the middle of winter. From my experience of his writing he was not an author so afflicted by Ms Hart’s particular inability.

This is a story of a young deputy smitten with his former high school teacher who chases after her when he realises a storm is heading their way and she may be trapped at her old property, ill-equipped to survive the blast.

It is sort of reminiscent of another story I’ve read by Vivian Arend – the younger man, older woman scenario – forced together by an icy blast. Apart from the women having an ex, that’s where the comparison ends unfortunately.

This is a romp of the dastardly kind. Ex is a self-absorb crim who has dumped his ex-wife in the way of trouble and Danny is left to get her out of it and in the process make her fall in love with him.

As always the people Christopher has created are real and passionate, his writing eloquent and his word pictures imaginative.

It is, however, not one of my favourites.

Desire & Ice: A MacKenzie Family Novella
By Christopher Rice
Review by Candace Fox
Genre: Contemporary Romance

I have to tell you that until now I have never been able to get thru a book written by a man, but this story had all the classic elements of all of Liliana Hart's MacKenzie Stories and I am delighted.

Danny isn't a scrawny teenager anymore and the object of his teenage desires return to Surrender 4 years after she moved away and married the wrong guy. A really wrong guy. Danny sees her and know what he feels now for Ms. Blackwell has nothing to do with his teenage fantasies, but of a true full grown lust of a man and a desire to make all the wrongs into right for Eliza.

This story is high packed action thru a snowstorm from hell, 2 Knuckleheads trying to kill them and a hike thru said storm, but the heat between the H/h kept you feeling all warm and fuzzy.

Excellent read Mr. Rice. I will be looking at your previous works now.

This story was my least favorite of this series. It was a good story but it just didn't fit as well as the others. I enjoyed Danny and Eliza but felt there really wasn't much of a connection between them.

Surrender Montana is expecting a blizzard and in the middle of it is Danny Patterson Surrender's youngest Deputy Sheriff. Danny saw Eliza had returned no longer married but single and looking like she was running scared. Danny is determined to find out as he heads to out to her ex-husbands ranch. He also is determined for Eliza to see he isn't a teenager anymore but a grown man. Desire & Ice is a MacKenzie Novella written by Christopher Rice. I have to admit I was a little scared when Liliana Hart had announced that different author friends were going to write MacKenzie Novellas, as many know we fans can be really protective of our favorite characters. I should have known better! They all nailed it !!! Mr, Rice captured the feeling of our favorite Surrender Montana family and friends! Congrats !! Liliana Hart & Christopher Rice LOVED it!!

Eliza is an ex-wife who asked too many questions and has been sent on an errand to her ex's property in Surrender. She's also Danny's former high school English teacher. He had a crush on Eliza that turned into desire and it's never gone away even though she had. Now she's back and Danny is a Sheriff's deputy on a mission to ensure she is safe. But she's not. Someone is trying to kill her and she and Danny flee for their lives during a severe winter storm. Now Danny is all grown up and circumstances bring them together as lovers. Will they survive the night or succumb to the elements or the hunters chasing them? Can there be a HEA for two people who have their history?

A story that includes the Russian mob, smuggling, a cheating ex-husband, an icy chase through the woods, and a touching romance. What more could you want?
