Cold As Ice
He wants her to be his lover… she wants to be his forever.
Nick Coalson is abrasive, arrogant, and an absolute dynamo in the bedroom. Problem is, he knows it.
Rebecca Morgan is sweet, shy, and immensely attracted to Nick, but he's trouble in tight jeans and she knows it.
When Nick saves Rebecca from an assassin’s bullet, he sets his sights on the shy partner of a detective agency. But he mistakes her kindness for weakness, and learns the hard way that although she may seem submissive, she’s a voluptuous bundle of intelligence and determination.
Rebecca tries to hide her feelings for Nick because he’s the kind of man that makes a smart girl do stupid things. After a sensual encounter, Nick grows distant, stating he wants a lover, not a wife. Rebecca realizes she’s going to need to keep her wits about her if she wants Nick forever because it’s too easy to lose herself to his dominant personality.
When a stranger offers to help her win Nick back, she accepts although she wonders what’s in it for him. But Nick thinks it’s too late for his love when he witnesses a tender moment between Rebecca and another man. His head tells him to step aside, but his heart aches for her tender touch.
And as the killer closes in on the Coalson family, Nick wonders if it will be too late to save not only their love, but their very lives?
‘Noah, we are not going around killing everyone. It’s not nice,’ Ginny commented with a slight smile as she passed him a slice of pie.
The blood feud continues between the evil psychopath Pye and the beloved Coalson clan, and the offenses and body count continues to climb with this active storyline. The plot thickens as they uncover additional elements and criminal factions at play. However, the main focus of this installment was a salacious and scorching sensual relationship as Nick and the feisty red-haired Rebecca do the back and forth dance with their on again/off again status and grapple with their personal differences. Their bawdy encounters were highly erotic, although the Dom/Sub genre holds no appeal for me personally. There are so many Coalsons to remember and keep straight – thankfully Ms. Adams does that for us with a helpful recap of the previous installments.
