Loyal. Beautiful. Professional. Impeccably organized. Potentially lethal. Sarah Stevens is a woman with many distinct qualities. First and foremost a butler par excellence, skilled at running large households smoothly and efficiently, she is also a trained bodyguard and expert marksman - indispensable to her elderly employer, a courtly gentleman whom Sarah has come to respect and love. Then one night she thwarts a burglary in progress, a courageous act that awards Sarah her requisite "fifteen minutes of fame" with the local press. But the exposure is enough to catch the attention of a tortured soul who, unbeknownst to Sarah, will stop at nothing to have her for himself. Sarah's perfectly ordered life is shattered when tragedy strikes: her beloved employer is brutally murdered. The detective investigating the case assures Sarah that she is not a suspect. Until lightning strikes twice. There's a second killing - and this time, despite a lack of evidence connecting her to the crime, Sarah cannot escape the shadow of guilt. The only option left for Sarah is to carry on with her life. But she doesn't realize that a deranged stalker is luring her into an elaborate in which she, once ensnared, might never escape. For Sarah soon finds herself at the mercy of a man who will tend to her every whim, smother her with affection, and crush her in his all-consuming embrace.
ICE is the story of Lolly Helton and Gabriel McQueen, former childhood adversaries who are reunited after fifteen years only to face the battle of their lives not only from mother nature and a vicious ice storm, but two cruel and unpredictable meth addicts who are hellbent on silencing them forever...

I'm a big fan of Linda Howard's and wish I could say I loved this book, but it was definitely not up to the author's usual standard. First of all, at around 200 pages it's only about half the size of a full-length novel and reads and feels more like a novella. The entire story takes place in a little over 24 hours, which made the whole thing feel very rushed. And while Lolly and Gabriel were both okay, neither were as well fleshed or engaging as I've come to expect from Ms. Howard's characters. To be completely honest, the villains seemed to have more depth than anybody else. Then there was the romance which felt forced and highly underdeveloped too. On a positive note however, there was plenty of action and just the right amount of suspense. In the end though I'm sorry to say I just never found it that compelling, but at least it was a fast read and I didn't hate it either.

RATING: 2.5 Stars
If the author wasn't named as Linda Howard, I wouldn't believe it was a book she wrote. I also wouldn't finish it. The writing is choppy, inconsistent, unenjoyable, and poorly edited. The kernels of her typical characters and style are there, but barely worth wading through the book to catch that little bit of her norm. This is a charmless, tedious, rehash of several books: as though Ms. Howard threw 1/2 of "Dying To Please" into her Vitamix, then added 1/8 of "Mr. Perfect", with additional bits of "Dream Man", Blair Mallory, and all her other Police Hero books (especially the New Orleans cop: which one was that? "Kill and Tell": he gets 1/8 as well), just for seasoning. Unless you're a fan like I am, who owns almost everything she's written, I'd definitely skip this one. Rereading the others is far more enjoyable.
If I could rate this book it would be a 10 out of 5. I can't tell you how many times I've read this book, listened to the CD, even how many soft back copies I have carried around. And i read an average of 3-5 books a week. The characters, the time travel, the story, even the message makes this book, well worth reading at least once...if not like me, a keeper at the top of the list. I like all of Linda's books. This is a mixture of romance, time travel, murder and mystery, and even has a Christian layer. One for any age or sex. Enjoy.
I have read, and very much enjoyed reading, Linda Howard’s books. ICE is not a good book. The story line is there for a really good book, but this endeavor lacks “heart.” In fact, it is a hurried attempt to put another notch on the “Books I have written,” bedpost. I feel cheated, and I want my money back!
This is one of my favorite Linda Howard books; along with "Mr. Perfect". I guess something about a policeman and a strong heroine. It is a suspenseful romantic comedy. The banter between the h and H is laugh-out-loud at times and the development of the secondary characters (i.e., her mother) were well developed. It was difficult to determine who the killer was until well into the book but this truly was more of the development between two strong-willed and "good" people. Some review discussed that it was slow in development and I would disagree. When relationships build over the course of a book, it is nice to see. It is hilarious about their "one night" stand at the beginning of the book and how he pursues a permanent relationship- because she is worth it. Absolutely fabulous book and have had it in hard cover for quite some time.
I want to be 100% real here--I love Linda Howard and she could probably publish a collection of her grocery lists and I'd still be like FIVE STARS I LOVE THIS BOOK YES PLEASE THANK YOU. However, that is not the case here.

"Veil of Night" combines humor, suspense, and faster than you can say hello romance. It reads more like her quirky, off-the-wall romantic suspense (such as Mr. Perfect and Open Season) than some of her newer assassin-filled novels. So fans of her older works will be very pleased.

Jaclyn, the heroine, has spunk and class (all at the same time) and the hero, Eric, is a real "Studley Do Right." However, while I was glad to see Howard return to the lighter side of death and murder, I felt the action and threat in the book was underplayed and I would have liked just a little more danger.

But all-in-all, it was a good read, filled with that instant, possessive passion that Howard portrays so well and pretty decent plot to boot!
