Fast-paced, sexy fun, Stuart's latest has an over-the-top, dastardly villain who is, perhaps, a touch more interesting than the hero. But otherwise, this book should please Stuart's fans. For those unfamiliar with her work, this book is probably not the best place to start -- an older title might be better.

Postponing her trip to Costa Rica to secure billionaire Harry Van Dorn's signature on some documents is initially a minor inconvenience to attorney Genevieve Spencer. But Van Dorn insists that she remain on his yacht overnight, and Genevieve reluctantly agrees. She soon regrets it.

Van Dorn isn't the jovial host he seems to be; he's a terrorist bent on unleashing something known as the Rule of Seven on the world -- and he's capable of doing anything to see his plans come to fruition. Genevieve's only ally is Peter Jensen, an operative for a covert organization trying to stop Van Dorn. But Jensen is as single-minded as Van Dorn -- and just as likely to kill, if necessary.

Cold as Ice

Submitted by Robin in PA on April 13, 2012 - 5:50pm.

Working for the committee, Secret Operative Peter Jensen is ready to finish his latest mission...kill Billionaire Harry Van Dorn. Mr. Van Dorn is well known for his philanthropy. What most people don't know is he has a plan to bring down the world financial markets with a series of seven terrorist attacks. Peter must stop him, but an innocent bystander has got in his way. Genevieve Spenser is a lawyer who just needs Van Dorn's signature on some paperwork. Now she is being held against her will and just may end up being collateral damage in a mission to save the world.

This is the second book in Anne Stuart's Ice series. Stuart has written her usual dark hero who I found very compelling. Peter Jensen is very cold and proud of the fact that he can control his emotions. Or does he even have any emotions? When Genevieve finally breaks through his icy veneer things get very interesting. I was thoroughly entertained by this story and will definitely be reading the next book. I just wish it hadn't ended so abruptly. Another chapter would have helped wind up the story. My rating: 4.5 Stars.
