Small-town librarian Charity Prewitt never dreamed she'd meet and fall in love with a man like Nicholas Ames. The handsome, rich, charming, sexy-as-hell millionaire blew into tiny Parker's Ridge, Vermont, and immediately rocked her world. Powerful, sensual, the perfect man, Nick knows all the right words-and all the right spots to touch, sending her soaring to dizzying new heights of ecstatic abandon. Never before has prim and proper Charity leapt into bed with a perfect stranger-and now that she's there with him, nothing is going to drag her away! But Nick Ames is not who he claims to be. In truth, he is Nicholas Ireland-the one they call "Iceman." A former Delta Force operator, now a high-level undercover agent, he will do whatever his government asks of him-lie, seduce, betray... even kill, if necessary-for the sake of the mission. And this time his mission is Charity Prewitt. Suddenly one woman has broken down his chilly restraint and ignited his passions completely. And before the erotic dream turns into a nightmare, will Charity be able to melt the Iceman's cold, cold heart?
