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)

    "Better narration for the second book."
    What made the experience of listening to Born in Ice the most enjoyable?

    Enjoyable listen.


    Have you listened to any of Fiacre Douglas’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I don't know if it was my imagination, but it seemed like Fiacre slowed down for this second book in the series. With the slower narration, there weren't the annoying breath sounds like there were in the first one. Great job.

    "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.

    "Good story, but..."

    The story was good, but the reader almost killed it for me. There is a lack of emotion in the reading although the characters were clearing defined in voice, something was missing. I wonder if the reader is used to doing non-romanace stories because his voice is great, but not for a romance. As far as the story, Nora Roberts does it again. I think I'll purchase the book and read if for myself.

    "An old favorite but terrible narration"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    The book has always been a favorite, but I can't recommend the audio version.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Brie is strong and competent and finds comfort in her home.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Fiacre Douglas?

    I would have preferred a female narrator. This narrator talked too fast when speaking female roles. To make matters worse, he made Gray about as lifeless as a brick. No inflection, no feeling behind any of his dialogue. The narrator was literally just reading at times with no effort.

    "Story vs narrator"

    The narrator has improved somewhat in this second book or the series. I think the best "performance" was the drunk fellows (no other spoilers). It seems he slowed his pace a little; or maybe I'm getting used to him. But there is still room for improvement.
    Fortunately the story is wonderful. I've read many reviews for NR and while there are similarities and cross overs from other stories, it's become a game for me to find them. I enjoy them.

    "Nora Roberts one by one"

    I am currently working my way through every one of Nora Roberts series of books. so obviously I do so love her book and this book did not disappoint. it was a perfect second book to go with Born in Fire. , keep up the good work and keep doing the series 2 3 4 and 5 books. I love them because I don't have to let go over character real quick. I kept to keep them through several books! More please more! I know how long it takes to write a book much less a series of books. That is why even before I'm through with all these series I'm begging for more!

    "Nora Roberts' story rules, narration okay"

    Excellent story. Great humor. Passionate story. A trip to Ireland with details down to the sounds and smell. Thank you again Ms. Roberts! I got used to the male narration during the first book. It went better with this second one. It's hard to be able to hear a Nora Roberta' book if it isn't Susie Breck (Garden Trilogy) or Susan Ericksen (Key Trilogy). Those two women are superior performers in the audiobook world.
