When an off-duty police officer paraglides into her remote English home the day before New Year's Eve, wrecking part of her property and endangering her livelihood, Hettie Sampson can't believe her bad luck. The last thing she needs is a cop hanging around, snooping into her business—even if he does have a body built for sin and a smile to die for.

All Nate Taylor wanted was a brief, adrenaline-fuelled escape from the memories of his failed relationship and now he's in a quandary—fix his mistake and risk getting stranded or ignore his conscience and leave the fiery-spirited owner of the property in a mess.

When a snowstorm hits and they're trapped together, it's only a matter of time before Nate discovers the guilty secret that Hettie's been keeping, finding himself pulled deeper into her life than he ever could have imagined. The question is, can they keep their hearts on ice amidst the heat of their connection? Or will they lose their cool and fall headlong in love?

Favorite Quotes:



The expression on his face changed pretty sharpish, but not to the humbled acquiescence she was hoping for.  Was he smirking at her?  Arrogant sod. 


Please tell me you’re just really clumsy, because otherwise that was the worst seduction technique I’ve ever seen…



My Review:



An extremely handsome man with an adorable dimple fell from the sky just like Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz.  And just like Dorothy, this swoon-worthy and dimpled Adonis (named Nate), caused more than a bit of destruction and disruption for poor Hettie, and hurt himself in the process.  Not exactly timely as Hetti was barely hanging onto her home and was in quite a dilemma.  Hetti had a secret, and it was one that made her anxious and uncomfortable once she found out her visitor from the sky was a copper.  From beginning to end this active, adventurous, and sweet tale kept me engaged and happily entertained for an afternoon.  Hearts on Ice was a quick, easy to follow, and pleasant read full of insightful observations, humor, sizzle, teasing banter, and amusing verbal sparring laced with innuendo.  Two clever and attractive people are stuck inside during a winter storm and no electricity – whatever will they do?
