"ICE, by Stephanie Rowe, is a thrill ride!" ~Lisa Jackson, #1 New York Times bestselling author
Alaskan bush pilot Cort McClaine thrives on danger, but the daredevil flier is closing in on a crash and burn if he doesn't get a handle on the past that's still haunting him. The last thing Cort needs is a woman who reminds of how much he's already lost, but that's exactly what he gets when a sexy-as-hell accountant climbs into his cockpit.
With her diamond earrings and high heels, ex-climber Kaylie Fletcher has cut her ties with the snow-capped mountains that have claimed the lives those she loves. But when her family goes missing on Mt. McKinley, Kaylie must brave the land she fled to find them before it's too late.
When a madman targets Kaylie, there only person she can trust is Cort, a ruggedly handsome protector who will either heal her heart or break it forever.

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.
Stumbled across this book on my device, don’t remember downloading it but there it was. Recently finished To Date an Immortal by the same author and just started reading. This one is darker, no immortality involved.
Not quite “couldn’t put it down” but definitely wanted to keep reading. Not knowing what to expect with regard to storyline the story pulled me in. I wanted to know what was going on with the character within the first few pages.
