She never expected her hero to be the bad boy from her past…
They hate each other .
Or at least, Smith Sanders always believed Madelyn Lake hated him. But when the city plunges into darkness and he finds himself trapped in an elevator with the prim and ever-so-reserved Madelyn, he realizes that hate and desire can be twined dangerously close together. The simmering tension that has existed between them since they were sixteen years old explodes in a sensual frenzy that sweeps past their control.
It won’t ever happen again.
Power returns. So does sanity. They go their separate ways except…he can’t get her out of his head. Madelyn is haunting him, and Smith already has more than enough ghosts dodging his steps. But he goes back to her, helpless against a desire that won’t end, just in time to save her from a vicious attack.
He never knew her at all.
Madelyn’s whole life has been a lie. A carefully orchestrated cover to protect her from the monster in her past. Only now that monster has found her once more. Protection from the past comes in a most unlikely form—the ever so sarcastic and far too sexy Smith. Former Special Ops, Smith is vicious, deadly, and, quite possibly, the answer to her prayers.
Needing him is dangerous. Falling for him? That’s so much worse.
Madelyn is ready to stop the killer who has taken so much from her, but she can’t do it alone. She needs Smith’s help—Smith and the Ice Breakers, a diverse group of hunters who excel at solving cold cases. Madelyn has spent years pretending to be someone else, and Smith is her key to finally ending her nightmare. But ending that nightmare means returning to her blood-soaked past, fighting an enemy who thrives in the dark, and putting all of her faith in Smith’s callused hands. Her faith, and her heart.
Because with every moment that passes, she finds herself starting to fall deeper and deeper for her unlikely hero…The bad boy from her youth is now the vicious protector who swears he will do anything to keep her safe.
A cold case is about to get brought back to red-hot life as Madelyn and Smith team up to stop a killer. TRAPPED IN ICE is a steamy romance with twists, danger, and a hero who enjoys laughing in the face of danger. Smith is sarcastic, fierce, and totally about to fall for the good girl from his past. Years ago, Madelyn was always out of his reach—even as she starred in his fantasies—but this isn’t a fantasy any longer. She’s his now, and he will do whatever it takes to protect her. Buckle up and get ready for the ice to melt…

Trapped in Ice is book number 5 in the Ice Breaker series, but you really can read it as a stand alone. Madalyn has been on the run since she was a preteen-new identity, no friends, and no breaking the rules. But, a year after her mother passes, she decides to break some of the rules and starts her own business. Then a killer finds her.

Smith has been half in love with Madalyn since high school, and now that she is suddenly back in his orbit, he isn’t just going to walk away this time. When he realizes she is in major danger, he is forcing his way into her life. Unraveling who is trying to kill her now means they need to unravel who abducted her then. Their relationship is a bit of the bodyguard trope, a bit second chance and it really works. I found the story was keeping me engaged and it moved at a pretty fast pace! Trapped in Ice is a must read for romantic suspense fans!
