Behind her mask is A DEADLY SECRET…

The powerful head of the covert mercenary organization The Committee, Isobel Lambert is a sleek, sophisticated professional who comes into contact with some of the most dangerous people in the world. But beneath Isobel’s cool exterior a ghost exists, haunting her with memories of another life … a life that ended long ago.

But Isobel’s past and present are about to collide when Serafin, mercenary, assassin and the most dangerous man in the world, makes a deal with The Committee. Seventeen years ago Isobel shot him and left him for dead. Now it looks as if he’s tracked her down for revenge. But Isobel knows all too well that looks can be deceiving … and that’s what she’s counting on to keep her cover in this international masquerade of murder.

Review: The best in the series yet!

Completely and totally awesome! I finished it just before midnight and I had to jump right on and post my review while the book was still fresh in my mind. *grin* Hope I hear my alarm clock in the morning!

Lots of action, suspenseful twists and turns, and the characters just suck you into the story with both hands.

Isobel isn’t the ‘Ice Maiden’ she appears to be, and I like that about her. While Peter (in Book #2, Cold as Ice) sees right through her facade, no one would guess otherwise, except for Killian, aka Serafin. She keeps a tight reign on her emotions, letting loose only when she’s completely alone, and it made my heart hurt to see that.

And then there’s Serafin, known to Isobel as Killian, a man she knew eighteen years past. She thought he was dead… Surprise! Talk about wake-up call! Arrogant and infuriating as all get-out, you can see he’s the perfect match for Isobel, even if neither would admit it until the very end.

A twist in the story leaves your jaw nearly on the floor – I’d have never guessed in a million years what/who Killian truly is, and it truly hurts Isobel when she finds out. I understood her anger. She did what she needed to do to put an end to what was happening to the operatives of The Committee and I hailed her for it. She did what she needed to do – even if it cost her.

Bastien is also involved (Book #1, Black Ice), as well as Reno (Takashi’s cousin, Book #3, Ice Blue), and a small twist with a young boy, Mahmoud, has you wondering what the fifteen-year-old will be bringing to the story in the future. The ending was perfect, I wouldn’t have had it any other way. I’ll be picking up Fire and Ice on Friday. You can bet I’ll be reading it asap. Out of the four books so far in the series, my pick is this one.
