It may be Christmas, but Annata St. James is feeling a distinct lack of holiday cheer. Seven years ago, Annata made a big mistake. She gave in to Christophe Van der Kind, the boss's smug, entitled son, in a moment of weakness. Their one night together has haunted her ever since. She will never forget how good he made her feel... but what happened between them is firmly in the past.
Now, hard-working Annata has her eyes on the prize - to be named CEO of the company she's been loyal to for 14 years. Only one thing stands in her way, and he's 6 foot 3, blond-haired, and blue-eyed. Christophe is back, and he's determined to screw her - in more ways than one!
It's ice-cold outside, but inside, things are heating up as Annata gears up for the fight of her life... little does she know Christophe has no intention of backing down. He wants Annata for himself, and he'll do everything in his power to make it happen....
Contains steamy secret trysts, a globe-trotting BWWM power couple, and a well-earned HEA. For mature listeners only.

Strong & SEXY BW/WM Romance w/ HEA!
I loved how the two main characters, Annata and Christophe, were both two strong willed characters! Most authors don't and make them the opposite to keep things interesting, but Lavender and Lynn definitely made this dynamic work! At the beginning I didn't think that they would ever stop butting heads and that no matter what poor Christy did, he couldn't win for losing, his fault or not! I won't even go into the sexual tension between the two of them, I will say I could feel it from the first moment to the last! :) I really admired Annata for fighting for all she worked so hard to achieve, no matter how much she loved Christy. Thank God Christy was smart enough to know Annata well enough not to push her too hard, even when his father makes him look like the bad guy. I was very impressed that the first book in this series, which could also be read as a stand alone novel, had a happily ever after ending and kept me interested and guessing until the very end. A lot of authors these days cannot achieve one or both of those. Lynn did a wonderful job portraying Lavender's characters and the story line. I felt for both Annata and Christophe and was routing for them the entire time! I can't wait for the next book to come out! I'm sure Toni's story will be just as exciting, seeing some of the drama she caused in this book!
This series could be categorized under BW/WM Contemporary Romance, but also Mature or Adult Romance. I was pleasantly surprised that the BW/WM is not over the top, even considering Annata's powerful character. So, even if you don't usually care for the genre, you will enjoy this book (and series) if you like any steamy romance novels!
Lynn's performance in "Kiss of Ice" is as amazing, as in all of her other audiobooks! If anything I would say that she portrayed a strong-willed African American woman flawlessly. If I didn't know better, I never would have guessed she wasn't exactly like the characters she portrayed! If you haven't listened to any of her work you definitely should, or if you are looking for a narrator that can preform from one end of the spectrum to another, while keeping the audience involved and interested, she's your go to narrator!
