I've given this book four stars because I loved it and couldn't stop listening to it even though it had so many obvious flaws. Most difficult to ignore were the glaring deficiencies of the narrator who (I think) tried an English accent for one character and, astonishingly, a vaguely Middle Eastern one for the hero who, we're told, was raised in L.A. I still have no idea what she was thinking but the fact that I could focus on the story despite these potential distractions means it must have been a pretty good one.
For readers new to Anne Stuart, she truly excels in creating utterly miserable (but courageous/heroic) heroines who soldier bravely through much adversity before they're rewarded by their climactic release. Always the same - always satisfying. Her heros mangage to walk the line of cruelty without losing their appeal - which I always think is a nice trick. An excellent trick here. Following the principle that many fine cakes can be made of the same recipe - Stuart fans will find this book a tasty creation indeed.

It is thrilling to finally get Anne Stuart's Ice series in audio format. Black Ice is still my favorite, but the others are also great. I don't see Fire and Ice available in Audible.com, but hope it will be soon. Madame Lambert is my hero, er heroine - a perfect match for the most dangerous man in the world. Hopefully there will be more unabridged audio books by Anne Stuart available soon, hint, hint.
