"An edge of your seat, pulse pounding, VERY Hot book!"
Cherry Adair has done it again with her latest book in
the T-FLAC series. Hot Ice is loaded with adrenaline and
high-octane romance. Ms. Adair lets you have it with both
barrels as the book opens and time is running out as T-
FLAC operative Huntington St. John closes in on the one
woman who has eluded many of their operatives for the last
Taylor Kincaid is the best in her field and prides
herself on a job well done. Of course her profession is
not one that can be readily spoken of in social circles.
Taylor is a jewel thief and a damn good one at that.
Because of her renowned skills the counterterrorist
organization T-FLAC is tracking her down for their next
operation. A religious fanatic, Jose' Morales has managed
to acquire a Nuclear weapon and intends to cleanse the
earth of sinners with it starting with Las Vegas.
Taylor not only holds the key but she is key in
completing this mission. During one of her latest
acquisitions she swept Morales safe clean. Her only
concern was in finding the Blue Diamonds, however the safe
took longer than expected so she seizes the entire
contents and figures she can sort it out later. What
Taylor doesn't realize is that in the process she manages
to acquire the one thing T-FLAC needs to access the
Enter T-FLAC leader Huntington St. John, or Hunt as his
friends call him, a man who prides himself on being very
focused when accomplishing his mission. He has tracked
Taylor down to South America and a dark cell in San
Cristobal. Hunt manages to break her out of the jail and
take her to a safe house. Thinking the rest of this
mission should be pretty much standard operating
procedure; he underestimates Taylor as she escapes his
grasp. Hunt, while not happy about the escape, can't seem
to shake an attraction he feels for her.
What Hunt thought would be a fairly cut and dried
mission has turned utterly complicated as he again tracks
down Taylor. And each time they come together they
struggle with their growing emotions and attraction. But
when you are on so much adrenaline trying to survive from
one incident to the next, how do you know if this could be
love? And even if this is love how could two people from
opposing thrill-seeking worlds possibly stand a chance?
Hot Ice is a sure thing! Ms. Adair's characters are
well supported by the secondary T-FLAC operatives that
assist in the mission. The villain is equally well
developed as you come to learn how a man like Jose'
Morales became so twisted, that you almost feel sorry for
him...almost! Ms Adair weaves in clever tools and
methods to solve this assignment. There has also been
great detail given to the locations/settings, which span
many continents. And the ability to bring it all together
in a pulse-pounding climax will leave the reader
breathless and well satisfied by the time you close this
