Description: Black Ice is deadly. It covers a winter road in its silent, sinister glaze, by all appearances nothing more than cold black asphalt beckoning the oblivious traveler... The chilling homicide of an unsuspecting woman hangs like a specter through the pages of this tale of romance intersecting the fast past worlds of emergency medicine and professional hockey. Young and independent, Jamie MacMaster is neither wanting or looking for love. Haunted by his past, and coming to Seattle on whispers of scandal, A.J. Charbonneau is single-minded in his determination to challenge Mason Griswald for the starting position as goalie, an outcome Griswald has vowed jealously to prevent. The competition becomes more than just a battle on ice as both men find themselves in a sinister and deadly battle for the heart of Jamie MacMaster, who suddenly finds her self-assured and safe world turned inside out by an unexpected and burning passion for a man with a past while another man's furious jealousy may become her undoing.

When she shook her head no, he set the bottle on the banister. Reaching down, he gently stroked the scar on her cheek. "It's going away." He watched her eyes close as she rested her cheek against his hand. Sliding his hands into her hair, he pulled her nearer. He watched her face intently then his lips closed on hers.
