Hot Ice | [Nora Roberts]

Hot Ice

Whitney MacAllister has all the wealth, power, and beauty anyone could ever wish for, and is therefore profoundly bored. Enter Douglas Lord, a good-looking, street-smart thief, who brings Whitney into his world of high adventure and murderous rivals. They come to a business agreement: Whitney will bankroll Douglas on an expedition to retrieve the legendary lost treasure of a long-dead Madagascar queen; in exchange, Whitney will get to come along and keep half the money once they have gained their prize.

Publisher's Summary

Whitney MacAllister has all the wealth, power, and beauty anyone could ever wish for, and is therefore profoundly bored. Enter Douglas Lord, a good-looking, street-smart thief, who brings Whitney into his world of high adventure and murderous rivals. They come to a business agreement: Whitney will bankroll Douglas on an expedition to retrieve the legendary lost treasure of a long-dead Madagascar queen; in exchange, Whitney will get to come along and keep half the money once they have gained their prize. What neither of them bargains for is the growing attraction they feel for each other. Though they don't have much in common, they find that they are meant for each other. Now, they must keep each other alive both for business and for pleasure.

    "cringe"

    The dialog was so contrived I could barely listen to it. The characters were luke warm and there was no believable build up of their going on an adventure together. without giving it away - they literally stumble on each other and the next thing you know off they go! the reader was awful at the male voices - it actually sounded as if she was making fun of their roles. If her other books are like this then I just read the last one. in a nutshell - yuck!

    "passed the time but not one of my favourites"

    I am a big Nora Roberts fan but this one was not one of my favourites, even for fiction the characters were just not believable.

    "Great Mix"

    Great story with a perfect mix of suspense, romance and humor. Interesting characters from the wealthy diva to the handsome thief to the ruthless villain.

    "Not my favorite"

    Think Romancing the Stone with a few tweaks.

    "fun"

    Well written. Witty dialogue. I wish that audible had more of this kind of offering.

    "Great Friendly Banter/Dialogue"

    Can't say that I'm an avid reader of Nora Robert's novels. However decided to give Hot Ice a go. It's another suspense thriller with a hint of romance types...

    The ending was okay, didn't particularly care for the explanation on how exactly Doug and Whitney were rescued, seemed a bit sloppy... But did enjoy the friendly banter/dialogue that took place between Whitney and Doug.

    "Hot Ice"

    This book has the exact same plot as Homeport. If you hear one, you have heard them both. The only change is the venue where the rich girl falls in love with the thief.
