    joycedlee: Nora Roberts is a more established writter than Julie Garwood, not taking anything away from her. Nora Roberts is my Favorite Author and she is extremely good at what she does. If you like Fire and Ice you will like the J.D. Series from Nora Roberts. joycedlee… (more)

I've always considered Julie Garwood to be one of my go to authors, but I think this series has run too long. Now it is follow a formula of what works, just change the names of the characters. ( )

Sophie Rose is a determined woman. She has broken all financial ties with her infamous father and has struck out on her own as a newspaper reporter. She has the complete support of her two best friends and her new boss. Now if the FBI would just stop trying to bug her and realize that she is not the direct pipeline to her infamous father the notorious big-time modern day Robin Hood. Her job at the small town newspaper, puts her in contact with a man that may give her some valuable information, but, it seems he has disappeared.

These books are not deep, compelling novels or even great literature. They are fun, enjoyable reads with her typical humorous writing style. I enjoy the fact that most of them have all been about one family group and their friends. Ireally like books that bring back characters from other books as supporting charcters. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys contemporary romantic suspense with a touch of humor. ( )

Fluff story about a reporter, the daughter of a fugitive father who the authorities are looking for. Odd journal entries about some folks studying wolves in Alaska interspersed in the tale, that ended up being just plain irritating. I stopped listening after about the third tape. ( )

Book description
Fresh from her incredible smash-hit historical romance Shadow Music, New York Times bestselling author Julie Garwood returns to contemporary romantic suspense with this wonderfully sexy, exhilarating blockbuster. Filled with sizzling passion and breathless adventure, Fire and Ice features a feisty heroine whom Garwood's devoted readers already know and love from her hugely popular novel Murder List. Sophie Rose, a tough and determined newspaper reporter, is the daughter of Bobby Rose, a suave, charming, and handsome gentleman who also happens to be a notorious big-time thief sought by every law-enforcement agency in the country. When the major Chicago daily where she works insists she write an exposeabout her roguish father, Sophie refuses, quits her job, and goes to work at a small newspaper. Far from her onetime high-powered crime beat, she now covers local personalities such as the quirky winner of several area 5K runs whose trademark is goofy red socks. Those red socks--with Sophie's business card neatly tucked inside--are practically all that's found after runner William Harrington is killed near Prudhoe Bay, Alaska, seemingly the victim of a brutal death by polar bear. The Alaska cops want to know why Harrington carried Sophie's card. With an unerring nose for a good story, she heads north. What Sophie doesn't realize is that on her journey from Chicago to Prudhoe Bay, danger follows in her wake. After one attempt on her life, she's been assigned brash but sexy Jack MacAlister as a bodyguard by the cautious FBI. Amid great peril and deadly intrigue in the unforgiving Alaskan terrain, she and Jack form an uneasy alliance sparked with sensual attraction. But they will soon be fighting more than their growing passion for each other. Powerful forces will stop at nothing to prevent the exposure of the sinister conspiracy Sophie and Jack are about to uncover. Captivating mystery, unyielding desire, unrelenting action in a setting both beautiful and lethal--Julie Garwood weaves these thrilling elements into a heat-generating masterpiece of romantic suspense.
