Description du produit

From Publishers Weekly

In Anne Stuart's strong follow-up to 2005's spectacular Black Ice, supporting player Peter Jensen moves into the leading role in a romantic suspense story pitting him and other members of the mysterious "Committee"—a group of international secret agents—against Texas billionaire Harry Van Dorn and his diabolical plan to create seven worldwide tragedies for fun and profit. Unfortunately, the arrival of lawyer Genevieve Spencer on Van Dorn's yacht throws a wrench in Jensen's assassination scheme. While he could easily dispose of her as "collateral damage," Genevieve breaks through his icy veneer and he gives her the means to fight her way out of danger. The brilliant Van Dorn is wildly over the top in his depravity, easily outdoing the most shameless James Bond baddie, but Stuart's spare writing keeps the gripping story focused. Though too much relies on Jensen's failure to tell Genevieve about her client's true motives, and Genevieve herself is an inadequate match for the steely agent, the chemistry between them crackles. Stuart courts controversy with Jensen's lack of emotion and total body control, allowing him to use sex as a tool for disarming both women and men; her hero's sexual flexibility is bound to turn off some readers, just as it's bound to entice others. Those who take the plunge shouldn't be disappointed: Stuart knows how to take chances, and this edgy thriller shows how well they can pay off. (Nov.)

Présentation de l'éditeur

The job was supposed to be dead easy—hand-deliver some legal papers to billionaire philanthropist Harry Van Dorn's extravagant yacht, get his signature and be done. But Manhattan lawyer Genevieve Spenser soon realizes she's in the wrong place at the wrong time, and that the publicly benevolent playboy has a sick, vicious side. As he tries to make her his plaything for the evening, eager to use and abuse her until he discards her with the rest of his victims, Genevieve must keep her wits if she intends to survive the night.

But there's someone else on the ship who knows the true depths of Van Dorn's evil. Peter Jensen is far more than the unassuming personal assistant he pretends to be—he's a secret operative who will stop at nothing to ensure Harry's deadly Rule of Seven terror campaign dies with him. But Genevieve's presence has thrown a wrench into his plans, and now he must decide whether to risk his mission to keep her alive, or allow her to become collateral damage….

*A chilling and excellent romantic suspense, by bestselling author Anne Stuart, in book 2 of her superb "Ice" series. If you haven't read these first two books, than I recommend that you start now because their that good and definetly must reads reads!......Sent by her law firm regarding some legal forms to be signed by the infamous philanthropist and billionaire Harry Van Dorn , attorney Genevieve Spenser had no idea that her life was about to take a ninety degree turn. Unbeknownst to her and unaware of the playboy's sick and vicious side, Genevieve, was clueless as Harry already planned to abuse her while making her his sex toy for the entire night. However, little did she know, it would take one of the billionaire's employees to change the course of everything. Working undercover as Harry's personal assistant for several months, secret operative Peter Jensen tried to conceal his shock at the Manhattan lawyer's unexpected arrival had just foiled all his plans. Assigned to gather all critical information as he could on Harry's reign of terror campaign, the "Rule of Seven" and in order to accomplish what he needed to know, he pretended to be the payboy's personal assistant throughout the duration eventually killing him once the job was completed. Known to his enemies as the "Iceman,Peter had never failed a mission and he carried out each job with a required precision including even murder with ice in his veins but he never murdered an innocent before and with miss Spenser's unexpected arrival, Peter had to decide whether to save her from the evil clutches of the sick and twisted mind of the billionaire or kill her as collateral damage.Realizing she was never going to get Harry's signature on those forms, Genevieve 's sixth sense was telling her that trouble was brewing but having no proof at all, she knew without a doubt , it had everything to do with the gorgeous personal assistant. Why? Who was he really? Having a stubborn strea plus a very bad temper, Genevieve not only planned to escape from the extravagant ship , instead, she found herself waking up in a very dangerous situation just because she happened to walk into something by being in the wrong place at the wrong time. However, fate was about to strike all those concerned when Peter's plan backfires causing distrust, betrayal and murder when a sadistic traitor was carrying out his own deadly agenda. Never believing in the existence of love or having any type of long-term relationship with any woman, Peter couldn't help but admire Genevieve for her stubborness, sarcasm and her strong will to survive but when destiny changes everything bringing overdue passions and hidden desires to the surface, unexpected human emotions strikes both their hearts while a cold-blooded killer intended to take his vengeance by making Peter and Genevieve his next intended victims!..thank you..

I am completely in shock that this series is from a publisher, because the editing is garbage. The POV switches mid paragraph throughout the entire book, there are numerous typos and grammatical errors... The entire thing was infuriating. I enjoyed the first book despite the errors but this one...

The plot itself was nice enough but entirely repetitive. Every single chapter had at least three repeated pages from the previous chapters.

I do not recommend.
3.0 étoiles sur 5 Good Antihero Story 28 mai 2015

After a lot of epic and high fantasy reads this was actually a great pallet cleanser. Nothing like a romance that begins with the Hero trying to think of reasons not to kill the heroine. Look it isn’t specifically Peter’s fault Genevieve was just in the wrong place at the wrong time but he doesn’t like it because she is really an innocent and he’d rather not have to hurt her.

Genevieve only had one stop to make before her vacation it should be easy. Get Harry Van Dorn to sign some papers and then be on her way off the grid. Harry has some other ideas and tries to waylay Genevieve into staying for some fun times. While Harry is handsome and a billionaire he isn’t what Genevieve even wants to consider playing around with. Meanwhile she isn’t sure why but she feels a slight tub towards Peter who is doing his best to be bland and unobtrusive.

Peter needs to find a way to get rid of Harry and somehow keep Genevieve alive. This goes against everything the agency he works for wants and might cost him something in the long run but what he is feeling for her, well lust or love or whatnot it eventually just will not be denied.

-- "He remembered everything he knew about her, including her sexual history and the things she didn’t like, and he knew she was going to do every one of them and like it. She was going to be on top, and she was going to go down on him, and she was going to tell him she loved him. And he didn’t know what would cost her more."

I liked the chemistry between Peter and Genevieve much more than the couple in the prior book. I found Peter easier to like than Bastian as an antihero. He is smooth in a different way and his seduction of Genevieve was steamy.

This story isn’t perfect there are a few things in the plot that got really glossed over and the ending was a bit rushed. I like a little more in my wrap up of a story. Overall it was a good time though. The villain was almost like a bond villain with some added sexual deviance and Peter played a pretty decent hero all tales told.

I do enjoy the antiheroes of this series and look forward to the next installment featuring Takashi.

"He'd been a gray ghost before, now he was a fallen angel. The man was a chameleon, capable of turning into anything he wanted, and he assured her those persona were lethal. And she believed him."

THE STORY: Genevieve Spenser is a high powered attorney who believes she has given up her idealistic views. When she comes to get signatures on a document for an important client of the firm, she ends up in the middle of a kidnapping perpetrated by the assistant of her client. Peter Jensen at first appears bland and non-threatening, but Genevieve learns that Peter is extremely dangerous and deadly. Peter knows that the innocent Ms. Spenser is likely to be a casualty in the Committee's attempt to prevent more damaging events. From the beginning, however, Peter is unwilling to sacrifice Genevieve even though he knows he will likely have no choice.

OPINION: I just love Stuart's anti-heroes who are especially good in the Ice Series. This book is filled with action and adventure and reluctant romance. This is definitely not your sweet loving book. This book is raw and harsh and sometimes it is difficult to see how these characters can have a happy ending. Peter is a highly trained killer and he knows that there is no clear line between the good guys and the bad guys. Peter almost immediately doesn't want to have Genevieve be a victim. He is known as the Iceman and she begins to melt him despite himself. Genevieve believes herself jaded and cold but doesn't realize that she is an infant compared to the dangerous people she encounters here. A reader will not get an intense emotional connection between these characters. At times their relationship seems more hate than love, but somehow it works. Despite both their wishes, these characters fall in love and form a strong bond.

WORTH MENTIONING: Stuart has a particular style with her heroes who are killers and are always on the edge of being dangerous to the heroine.

FINAL DECISION: Love, love Stuart's ruthless anti-heroes. This is a tremendous romantic thriller with action and adventure galore.

CONNECTED BOOKS: COLD AS ICE is the second book in the Ice series about the covert agency known as the Committee. While there is some overlap of characters, COLD AS ICE can be read independent of the first book in the series.

STAR RATING: I give this book 5 stars.

Wow! What a waste of time and money. This book is very poorly written and ends as abruptly. Black as Ice ended the same way, and it is just not satisfying!. There is no depth to the characters. I never felt like I cared about them. The supposed love connection between main characters seems preposterous. The villain is one dimensional and cartoonish. To make matters worse, I noticed a persistent theme in Anne Stuart's books, thin heroines who are written as curvy or fat. Last time i checked a 5'9" women who wears a size 8 is anything but "socially unacceptable"! Good Lord Anne Stuart, do you want your readers to have body dysmorphic disorder. Please stop contributing to the cult of thinness! I read Black as Ice and noticed that she did the same thing in that book. The "fat" heroine is 126 lbs and is tall! Yeesh!! Stop the madness! And stop writing such drivel and wasting reader's time and money.
