Ice by Stephanie Rowe was super hot and a great read. I've been trying to read new authors and I am glad I picked this up. This book is based in cold Alaska. Kaylie Fletcher has worked hard since the age of sixteen to distance herself from the life her parents loved, a life filled with danger and adventure, when she returns to the life she swore never to return to because of a call, your mother is alive.

So much pain, suffering, heartache & emotion?! I love it all. Especially the passion and the love. Fighting against the idealism of what her family wants her to be, Kaylie wants safety and security. Living with adrenaline-seeking parents, Kaylie encounters more than the average death scenarios. Getting a vague phone call, Kaylie flies into Alaska where she is forced to face her fears. It helps that she has Cort, a bush pilot, to ease the tension and keep her safe from a stalking murderer. Cort battles his own demons but finds peace and serenity in Kaylie’s presence. So much emotion and secrets are revealed that make this story something to remember.

I waited to read both books in this series before I reviewed either (there supposedly was a 3rd book coming out earlier this year, but I've yet to see it). I'll review each separately, but my issues with one pretty much go for the other. I love romantic suspense, but it can be a fine line writing one with enough suspense to keep you interested, but also enough romance to make the suspense worth your time-----if you know what I mean. These books both suffered from too much, tacky, over-the-top romance. First, Cort and Kaylie have sex hours after meeting with never any mention of protection (sorry, it's the practical girl in me), and are suddenly already obsessed with each other, and NOT just in a lust way. They start thinking about each other in terms of forever almost right off the bat. It seemed sort of juvenile. And the plot with her missing family didn't make much sense. When Mason was first imprisoned, he had thoughts about something he did getting him in this situation, but that was never mentioned again. Maybe the 3rd book focuses on him in order to explain that further(he and Charity would be my guess). Anyway, this isn't a bad book, I still enjoyed it overall, but only as something to pass the time.

What I love about Stephanie Rowe's books is that I don't have to read to the last two pages before the couple finally consumates their passion. I don't mean her books are filled with sex. I just do not like stories where most of the content is the inner struggling of "should I or should I not" act on my feelings. The story line can get so dragged out and repetitive and boring. This novel, as well as every other Stephanie Rowe book, is definitely NOT boring. I love the angst, the passion, the struggle, and finally the reconciling in their minds that a happily ever after ending works.

Kaylie Fletcher's parents and her brother are adrenaline junkies, who get their fix from climbing. Kaylie was never really addicted to this kind of outdoor activity but since her family was fanatic about climbing, she just followed them. That's until her sixteenth birthday, when something terrible happened on an expedition and Kaylie swore to never return to the mountains again.

Ten years later she has made a nice career that enables her even to afford some luxury in her life. The only luxury she hasn't been allowing herself is any contact to her family. In any case, her family very recently took part in a climbing expedition in Alaska and has disappeared without any trace. After ten days and since no dead body appeared, the local police has stopped the investigation. And then Kaylie receives a mysterious phone call where a man insists that her mother is still alive. Truth or prank? Kaylie knows that she has to return to the hated mountains and that she owes it to her family to do whatever she can to find out what happened. Her friend Sara who lives with her husband in Alaska has made further arrangements for Kaylie so that she can start immediately her search, which arrangements includes bush pilot Cort McClaine would fly her to Sara's cabin. However, as soon as Kaylie sees Cort she feels that he's an adrenaline junkie but she feels such a tremendous attraction towards him that she cancels her flight with him. However, when she tries to call Sara to make new arrangements she finds a voice message from her friend on her phone that clearly indicates that something must have happened to Sara and the only thing she wants now is to get as fast as possible to Sara, even if that means flying with Cort. When they arrive at the cabin they make a horrible discovery which skyrockets Cort's protective instincts.

Kaylie was a very likable heroine, who grew up in a very unusual family where obviously the parents' need for self-fulfillment exceeded their need to understand and foster the individuality of their children. In response to this neglect Kaylie has withdrawn in a world that she created by herself and which offered her the protection she thought she needed. When she meets Cort she thinks that he belongs to the same "brainless" and adventurous bunch her family belonged to. However, she takes the time to try to find out who Cort really is and that makes her even more likable.

Cort came with a lot of baggage as well. He's lost beloved ones who seemed to be willing to take senseless risks and he took some serious risks by himself in order to save lives which backfired in a tragic way and pushed him towards taking even higher risks. Although Kaylie represents everything he didn't like he also took the time to "discover" who Kaylie really is and helped her to discover new perspectives in her life, which helped him to find closure and move on. Well done!

Just a small point of criticism is the lack of background information, which would have added some "weight" to the book. For instance, Sara's husband was Cort's best friend. However, there wasn't any information on how they met or any description of commonly shared events or anything else at all.

A further example would be the girlfriend of Kaylie's brother who was also on the "cursed" expedition and consequently was also killed. If I recall correctly, Kaylie's brother made only one short remark referring to her death. No mourning from the boyfriend? Was she a regular climber or did he have to persuade her to take part? If so, did he have any remorse? There are other points like these I could refer to but I think I've made myself understood.

The story line was interesting and kept me focused throughout the book, although I figured out quite early who the killer could be. However, this didn't reduce my reading pleasure.

The beginning was kind of a shocker. That was not expected to happen with Kaylie's best friend Sara. Cort can be a bastard. I hate the way they treat her on the plane ride to Sara's house. Both Cort and the troopers treat her like she is nothing and do not exist. When Cort is angry with her he ignores her, I don't like that trait in a man. She has her own issues to deal with; he is not the only one with a painful past. His friends tell her to look underneath his attitude to understand him. At about 36% of the book, I guessed who the culprit was due to his age, dismissal, rudeness and advice. But I won't give that away (wink wink). Kaylie's mother sounded like she was a whore back in her younger days. Kaylie did not grow up with caring parents. She also becomes best friends with one of Cort's past lovers. That is unbelievable to me; I don't care how nice she is. To Cort's credit, he is totally focused on Kaylie when he's with her.

Kaylie and Cort both damaged by events from their past and emotional betrayal. The strong sensual attraction found in all Rowe books is immediate. I found this story to be both an interesting mystery and boring. To many of the same feelings, doubts and rejections revisited throughout the story. Each of these issues described with almost the exact wording over and over. It was difficult to finish this book. I was disappointed since this was the first book of the new series, Alaska Heat. So many of Rowe's books has been cut and paste from other books. I was hoping this would be a new style.
