I thought the book was pretty good--a classic Nora Roberts! The dialogue between the characters was above par but I found the action a little difficult to believe. For one, the fact that Remo was always right behind them got to be a little hard to believe. Also, when they're alluding Remo traversing down the river, I thought it was a little slow. Other than that, it was a good read!

I LIKE NORA ROBERTS, BUT THIS IS THE LEAST FAVORITE OF MINE. THE WOMAN IS AS STRONG AS EVER BUT, THE HERO LEAVES A LOT TO BE DESIRED.

I'm reading no more Roberts. This was just silly! Everyone is so perfect (even under the most ridiculous circumstances) - perfectly beautiful or perfectly bad, etc. Sorry, I just can't suspend my rational thinking quite that far.

HOT ICE is a good story, but not fantastic. It is obvious how much the author has grown as a writer since she wrote this story in 1987. The characters were not instantly likeable, the plot didn't grab me, and it just seemed like your typical fill-in-the-outline standard romance. I was rather disappointed.

One of Nora Roberts famous books. Involves a Jewel Heist, Kidnapping, and even romance. It will keep you on the edge of your seat with every turn of the page.

A little bit different for Roberts. A stranger takes over Whitney MacAllister and her car and embroils her in adventure and danger in Madagascar.

Fun, adventure-movie with romance of a book. Great light reading for commute or vacation, in Nora Roberts style. Fun characters - the spoiled yet spunky heiress and the loner with a heart jewel thief who encounter a number of interesting people along the way.

A fast paced romantic suspense/mystery about a Manhattan socialite who crosses the path of a man who is on the run. He hijacks her Mercedes, bullets are flying, and behind them is a pack of ruthless killers who eliminate anyone who gets in their way. This was a very entertaining novel, and I had trouble putting it down

She has the cash and the connections. He has the stolen documents leading to a fabulous hidden fortune. It is a business proposition, pure and simple. Yeah, right!

This was my second Nora Roberts book. Had it been my first, there would NEVER have been a second. I thought this book was truly horrid. I read about 75% of it; I could not finish. Waay too contrived. The characters were not likeable at all. I simply did not care what happened to either of them!

I am not a big fan of Nora Roberts or J.D. Robb or whatever pen name she happens to go under. However, Hot Ice is hands down my favorite contemporary romance. The chemistry between Whitney and Douglas is HOT and the story is captivating as you follow the two from the city of Manhattan through the wilds of Madagascar.

Highly recommend!

Quick and easy read. A lot of jumping around and hiding from 'the bad guy' but an easy plot to follow. Also very steamy ;)

I have to agree that this was not one of my favorites by Nora! This one was actually hard for me to keep reading! Seriously, what are the chances that if you are getting car-jacked, you would actually STAY IN THE CAR!!! Really!

On the run in Manhatten and the target of hit men, Douglas Lord jumps into a nearby car and orders the driver to "step on it". Heiress Whitney MacAllister doesn't like being ordered around, but flying bullets make her move fast. With killers on their heels, Doug and Whitney come to an agreement. He has information that will lead them to a treasure and will split it with Whitney if she bankrolls the expedition. Soon they are on their way to Paris, then Madagascar, in search of a priceless treasure.

This is a good on-the-run story with witty dialogue. I first read this book years ago and enjoyed it. This time around I listened to the audiobook narrated by Anna Fields. I absolutely loved her excellent narration. My rating: 4 Stars.
