Small-town librarian Charity Prewitt never dreamed she'd meet and fall in love with a man like Nicholas Ames. The handsome, rich, charming, sexy-as-hell millionaire blew into tiny Parker's Ridge, Vermont, and immediately rocked her world. Powerful, sensual, the perfect man, Nick knows all the right words—and all the right spots to touch, sending her soaring to dizzying new heights of ecstatic abandon. Never before has prim and proper Charity leapt into bed with a perfect stranger—and now that she's there with him, nothing is going to drag her away!
But Nick Ames is not who he claims to be. In truth, he is Nicholas Ireland—the one they call "Iceman." A former Delta Force operator, now a high-level undercover agent, he will do whatever his government asks of him—lie, seduce, betray . . . even kill, if necessary—for the sake of the mission. And this time his mission is Charity Prewitt.
Suddenly one woman has broken down his chilly restraint and ignited his passions completely. And before the erotic dream turns into a nightmare, will Charity be able to melt the Iceman's cold, cold heart?
Another great romance from Lisa Marie Rice
Charity Prewitt was not expecting the tall, dark and handsome stranger that walked into her life as a boring librarian. But the man that walked in was more than the rich and successful stockbroker he presented himself to be. Nick Ireland was strong and lethal. The Iceman. He was on a mission to find out as much about the town's newest citizen, Vassily Worontzoff, a villain in sheep's clothing and a man obsessed with Charity. What started as a mission for Nick evolves into something he has only heard of but never experienced. Love. For Charity, she tries unsuccessfully to hold back the yearning for more than the earth shattering sex they experience in this whirlwind relationship. Charity's innocence and grace are all that matter to Nick now and he will protect her at all costs against an evil man bent on possessing Charity.
Ms Rice does an excellent job of weaving a spellbinding erotic romance thriller. Her alpha heroes are take charge men and Nick Ireland is no exception. Her heroines are strong in their own right and clearly equal to these headstrong men, as is Charity Prewitt. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to more from her.
