Behind her mask is a deadly secret . . .

The powerful head of the covert mercenary organization The Committee, Isobel Lambert is a sleek, sophisticated professional who comes into contact with some of the most dangerous people in the world. But beneath Isobel's cool exterior a ghost exists, haunting her with memories of another life . . . a life that ended long ago.

But Isobel's past and present are about to collide when Serafin, mercenary, assassin and the most dangerous man in the world, makes a deal with The Committee. Seventeen years ago Isobel shot him and left him for dead. Now it looks as if he's tracked her down for revenge. But Isobel knows all too well that looks can be deceiving . . . and that's what she's counting on to keep her cover in this international masquerade of murder.

What a book...Wonderful!! there's lots of action, suspenseful twists and turns, and the characters just suck you into the story with both hands.

This is the story of Isobel Lambert, The "Ice Queen". She is the head of the Committee,an organization devoted to keeping our world from destroying itself...She has learned to be hard and capable of keeping a tight reign on her emotions. No one knows her true name or her real age or even anything about her.

And then there’s Serafin, known to Isobel as Killian, is a mercenary, assassin and the most dangerous man in the world...Isobel thought that she had killed him seventeen years ago and you can imagine her astonishment finding that he is alive...and that she still loves him.

This is the fourth book in the Ice series, and you meet up with Bastien (Black Ice, first book) and Peter (Cold as Ice, second) again. I was very happy to see them again. This way we can have a glimpse of what their lifes are now after all they had been through before they stopped working as mercenaries for The Commitee.
This romance is very hot...I highly recommend it.

We encounter Scarpetta languishing in a crumbling little rental house in Florida. She has taken refuge there and become a private forensic consultant after she was driven from her job for her alleged involvement in the murder of a deputy police chief. The violent death of her lover, Benton Wesley, the brilliant FBI psychological profiler, has left her filled with an unappeasable grief. When the coroner in Baton Rouge asks her advice on a cold case concerning an affluent woman found dead of a drug overdose in a seedy hotel, it seems little more than a diversion. Yet it becomes clear that the overdose may be related to a fresh string of serial killings. Also disturbing Scarpetta's somber peace is a troubling letter from someone out to kill her, the sick and obsessed death-row inmate Jean-Baptiste.

When Scarpetta is at last allowed to get back to business, she is a feisty, independent powerhouse whose capacity to concentrate and observe rivals Sherlock Holmes's. But too much of this book is bound up in retrospective musings about events in previous books. The great Scarpetta, her fiery crime-busting niece, Lucy, and a colorful supporting cast deserve better.

I've read this book last year and my first impression about it was that it seemed to be very interesting book...It had the potencial...I really enjoyed it...I've seen a few bad reviews about it but I thought that it was good. About the ending I totally agree that it's a bit disapponting... It had a rush end. the author could have done a better end...But inspite of this I liked it.

Taking a break from his phenomenally successful Alex Cross series, James Patterson's When the Wind Blows is as much child's fantasy as it is an adult nightmare.

The novel moves away from the gritty Washington, D.C., setting of the Cross books and follows the daily life of Frannie O'Neill, a Colorado veterinarian. After the mysterious death of her husband several years before, Frannie retreated to an isolated life in her Colorado practice. But a series of bizarre events suddenly disrupts her lonely routine. On a personal level, she is shaken by her new tenant--Kit Harrison.

Kit's too handsome and too friendly and he's a hunter (or so Frannie thinks). He's also recovering from a devastating personal tragedy, and, as Frannie eventually learns, he's really an FBI agent using his vacation to follow a crucial lead. But Kit isn't the one that's got Frannie concerned. As she says after stopping her Suburban one night to check out something on the side of the road: "What I saw was way beyond my abilities to imagine, beyond my comprehension, my system of belief, and maybe beyond my ability to communicate right now. The little girl's arms were folded back in a peculiar way, but when she lifted them--feathers fanned out."
The girl is Max, and the mystery of her wings leads Frannie and Kit into a massive conspiracy involving secret genetic research and the scientific manipulation of the human species.

I had never read any book from James Patterson but a friend lent me this one saying that I might like it... When I read the text on the back cover I thought that she had lent me another romance...but I was wrong. Well, it has romance involved but the true story is about Max, the child with wings and her little friends back at the hospital where they were being held since birth.It was a good reading though...with a very intriguing plot.

SCOTLAND, 1272. Connor MacKiernan, a descendant of the Fae Prince, is a warrior who lives only for honor and duty. Though he's vowed never to marry, that's exactly what he must do to save his sister. Enter a little Faerie magic, and the search for a bride is on.

DENVER, 2007. Caitlyn Coryell is having a really bad day -- she just discovered her fiancé with another woman! Imagine her surprise when she puts on some sexy lingerie and an antique pendant and Connor appears in her bedroom, begging for her help. He offers a simple yet outrageous adventure: travel to his time, marry him, and return home.
But nothing's simple when Cate is trapped in the thirteenth century. The wedding's delayed, someone's trying to kill her, and in the middle of all this, she realizes she's falling in love with a man who can only be her husband for thirty nights.

This is a great debut from Ms. Mayhue...I waited a lot to read this book and I wasn't disapointed...It is a enchanting story...There's a suspenseful plot in the middle of the romance and a surprise villan...I totally advise you to read it. You will love it!

At the moment I'm finishing the book "Thirty Nights with a Highlander Husband" by Melissa Mayhue which is a VERY good book...I truly recommend it! But I have several other books to read after this one, like these:

This book was not the usual historical romance...The romance was there but it had a mystery story involving the male characther which made the book even more interesting...and it was cute the recepies that the autor included in the beggining of every chapter...Lovely.
