A young cop, in the closet and isolated, is transferred to the bikers squad, where he is betrayed by a higher ranking officer. When Brian Fuller finds himself in the middle of a field surrounded by a group of notorious outlaw bikers, he is in for the fight of his life.
He wakes up battered and bruised, only to discover that he is the hostage of the gang’s leader, the infamous, brutally handsome Ice. At first, Brian doesn’t understand why he is still alive. It turns out that the man who murdered Ice’s family, is the same one who left Brian for dead… and Ice intends on trading Brian’s life to get him as soon as Brian is strong enough. In the meantime, while Ice waits for Brian to heal, a raging sexual heat between them begins to fuel.
Melting Ice is a story of great passion, sizzling sex, and above all, a love story laced with the unexpected.


Hmmm….Well, this is a short story that is kinda sweet.  I enjoyed the interaction of the characters.  The plot was a little common and predictable.  I usually enjoy these types of stories; this one was just off for me.  The plot was just really, really obvious.  I didn’t buy how the love story developed between the characters.  And finally the near insta-love was just a little much.  I do think if the characters were fleshed out a bit and a the two characters interaction was longer and more involved I could like this story a whole lot more even with an obvious plot.
