A superior novel that will bestow tears of frustration and hurting and then teardrops of delight from the reader.'Fire in the Ice’ is an ideal title for this book.
The warmth, disarray and ire that the primary character (Deedra) experienced, along with her anguish over the loss of her parents and the demise of her young husband made her cover her heart, lock it away and survive just by a in depth survival mode. (Therefore the "Ice".) Meeting Josh, she got occupied with dread at what could be her first experiences with real love and real passion and she almost abhorred him for interrupting her cautiously fabricated existence.
However, Deedra was not solo in her fright of feeling – Josh as well lived through a horrific relationship that left him mistrustful of commitment. Her continual rebuttal was difficult on Josh, who was accustomed getting what he desired, but his tenaciousness and love expelled her from her own prison and helped Deedra see that she had never actually existed in the least – but only lived. None of Deedra’s travel through her Self was achievable without the true-blue support of her devout friend, Marcy.
This romance novel had a few very steamy scenes (the "Fire") that, though not over-used, were for certain so well written that this shy commentator was reddening furiously while reading them – much to the amusement of my spouse!
Katlyn Stewart has done an superior job attracting the reader into the lives of her characters and feeling their pain and elation. I would not hesitate to pick up a different title authored by Katlyn.
