Publisher's Summary

When the harsh storms of winter descend upon western Ireland, the locals stay indoors - and visitors stay away. Brianna Concannon's bed-and-breakfast becomes a cold and empty place. And that's fine with Brianna. She enjoys the peace and quiet, even when icy winds howl at her window.

This year, though, she's expecting an unusual guest: mystery writer Grayson Thane, from America. A restless wanderer with a dark past, he plans to spend the cold winter alone. Yet sometimes fate has a plan of its own. Sometimes a fire can be born in ice...

    "terrible narration"
    What did you love best about Born in Ice?

    the story is beautiful, typical nora roberts, with lots of romance and makes you want to live with the characters.


    How could the performance have been better?

    the narrator is terrible for a romance novel,no warmth, fast reading, monotone... almost ruined the book for me...

    This was a great series, second in my mind only to the Circle Trilogy. Strong women, great characters and enough twists and turns to keep you interested.

    "No Ice Here"

    The first book in the series was a beautiful love story and very enjoyable. This one was almost painfully beautiful. . . made me cry, and certainly makes me want to go spend some time in the Irish countryside. The narrator is marvelous. He does such a fine job with the differing voices and accents. How can a narrator make the male lead "sound" so handsome and hot?

    "Good but too bad!"

    Another wonderful Nora Roberts story, but the narrator is a dry and bland voice for the story. Desperately needs a female voice.

    "A True Love Story"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this read. The book kept my interest and was descriptive enough to make me feel like i was in the room with the characters. Highly recommended.

    "Brianna is wonderful"

    Brianna's story is the reason I could overlook the narrator and download the 2nd book after MONTHS of promising myself I just couldn't stand his voice.

    Brianna goes through so much not only from the first book but right into this one aswell that you have to hear her story and need to find out if it all "ends" in happiness.

    A few twists, a great read - ignore Fiarce and the book is GREAT!

    "classic Nora but...."
    What did you love best about Born in Ice?

    as always, Ms. Robers' insight into thoughts and feeling, is excellent.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Born in Ice?

    when Jude breaks Aiden's nose.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Fiacre Douglas' performance is just not good. She is too stiff, too precise; she sounds unnatural.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    no, I never have time for that. If the performance was better, it would have been one I would have lothe to turn if off when I needed to though
