To Robin Bartlett, men were nothing more than violent users. After a hair-raising childhood, Robin and her two younger half sisters battled simply to survive. Determined to give her sisters a very different life from that of their mother; to never have to rely on a man for anything, she worked two jobs and put them both through college, while accepting help from no one. Her heart had turned to ice and she had no use for men or God.
Antonio "Tony" Viscolli had grown up on the streets, homeless. At seventeen, he entered a downtown church with the intent of casing it, but found himself on his knees at the alter. After being fostered by the youth minister, Tony followed God's leading and eventually became a very successful and powerful businessman. In a fallen world, he was a gem.
When Tony bought the restaurant where Robin bartended, she immediately resented his intrusion into her well ordered, but exhausting, life. She suspected his offering her special attention and constant kindness was merely his way of expecting something from her in return, something she wasn't willing to give.
Tony knew God had led him to Robin. Would she ever allow herself to trust him? Could she ever allow herself to trust God? Or would the winter of their tragic youth rise from the shadows of the past and freeze any chance at happiness?

A Great Book
Sapphire Ice grabs the reader from the first page and the story builds and twists to keep you interested throughout. The story deals with real life situations that most people try to ignore and pretend do not exist. The characters deal with real life issues that we face on a regular basis such as having enough time in the day, not having enough money, taking care of others and neglecting ourselves. This is a romance but it is not your typical predictable I know how this story is going to end. It is a must read for everyone that loves a great wholesome story about real people.
I enjoyed this inspirational page turner !!!
Don't miss this bestseller!
Sapphire Ice had me captivated from the very beginning of the prologue. I expected to enjoy this book, but was surprised at just how much the story drew me in. Hallee brings her characters to life in real-world situations and settings that leave you imagining you'll run into them somewhere someday. This is a very touching love story that shows the true romance between the characters without graphic sexuality that has become common in other romance novels. The sneak peek at the end left me wanting more.
