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...

©2007 Nora Roberts; (P)2007 Brilliance Audio

What the Critics Say

"Captures the charisma and earthy charm of Ireland." (Publishers Weekly)

"Fiacre Douglas characterizes the icy, beautiful Brianna Concannon, recently jilted, with subtle nuances and tonal shading mixed with a thick Irish brogue." (AudioFile)

    "Excellent series"
    If you could sum up Born in Ice in three words, what would they be?

    Most enjoyable listening


    What other book might you compare Born in Ice to and why?

    All the other Nora Roberts books I have read so far.


    What about Fiacre Douglas’s performance did you like?

    At first I found his reading a little too fast, but after a while I got used to it and his accent was perfect for the story.

    "Staccato Reading Style"

    The story itself might be very good if I could just get past the reader's staccato style. He treats periods like laws engraved in stone. He treats conversations like shouting matches across canyons or like out-of-breathe people who speak extra loud to make sure they are understood. The inflections are all the same so a romantic moment sounds the same as a description of experiences suffered in an orphanage. Yes, the reader has an Irish accent but it is hardly a lilt. He and the Blarney Stone should have a date ASAP. I kept wanted to tell him to relax, to use his voice like a paintbrush and not like a used-car salesman spotting an elderly mark.

    In short, beware this reader.

    "Easy listening"

    This series is predictable, but no less enjoyable for it. It's good background listening. The narrator is great, his accents are really well done. It's like comfort food in audiobook form. It's great that the story of Maggie and Rogan continues in this one as well.

    "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.
