Reformed jewel thief Addison Hayes wants to make a fresh start. A new television series featuring rehabilitated thieves staging break-ins seems perfect. The only snag? Her handsome co-host Garrett Powell—his Texas drawl makes her body sing. But seven years behind bars taught her that romance and business don't mix.

Garrett Powell only signed on for the TV show to satisfy a debt and get his life back on track. Fellow inmate Jimmy Patterson once saved his life and in repayment, Garrett agreed to secretly look out for Jimmy's protégé, Addison. But Addison's spunk and intelligence soon have Garrett wishing there could be more between them.

When a rare blue diamond necklace they stole for the show goes missing, Addison and Garrett have to join forces to clear their names. With gun-toting thugs and the law after them, can they find the jewel—and each other—before it's too late?

Blue Ice is a cool caper, the adventure grabs you from the first sentence and never lets up. Balanced with a wonderful romantic element this is a fast and fun escapade. The two main characters draw you in and before you know it you are going along for the ride, holding your breath that everything works out. Garrett is one sexy ex-con and I think I might have lost a little piece of my heart at his slow Texas drawl and deeply ingrained manners. Addison has the type of perseverance and determination that most people can only dream of. Neither of these two are perfect but they are likable in their flaws and features. The villains and supporting characters are entertaining and add to the plot and pace. I’d love to see Garrett’s friend get his very own story and I’m looking forward to checking out what else this author has to offer.
