Is he a drop dead gorgeous…killer?

Delilah “Lila” Darrow doesn’t belong in the world of the rich and famous, but for one night, she’s going to wear the fanciest dress she can find and pretend that she does. Her plan—get close to reclusive billionaire Archer Radcliffe and find out…is he a murderer?

She knows exactly what Archer likes. She knows how to slip beneath his guard. She knows how to make him fall for her. With the right tools, Delilah believes she can finally make Archer pay for the crime he committed so long ago.

Payback is calling…and she’s wearing a dress made for sin.

Delilah is part of a group of crime solvers called the Ice Breakers—an online team made up of individuals who have the goal of solving cold cases. Five years ago, Delilah’s sister disappeared without a trace. Since then, Delilah has made it her mission to close as many unsolved cases as possible. Archer Radcliffe will be the latest target in her quest.

Except…Archer turns the tables on her. He sees through her lies. Tries to seduce her. And, he also swears his innocence.

Can she trust him? Or is he playing her?

Now that he has Delilah at his side, Archer can finally get the justice—the vengeance—he has craved. The only problem? The beautiful Delilah will be in danger. But Archer intends to stick close to her. So close that the world will believe they are completely in love. So close that a deadly enemy will want to strike. So close that just maybe—if he’s not careful—Archer might begin to fall for the woman he intends to use…

Author’s note: Archer is rich, powerful, and definitely not a man you want as an enemy. Desire can be deadly, and revenge is always best served ice cold. Looking for danger, suspense, scorching scenes, and maybe even a few cold chills? FROZEN IN ICE has you covered.

This is the first book in an exciting new series about the Ice Breakers, a team of civilians who break cold cases. Any of you true crime and cold case enthusiasts…this one is for you!

Delilah Darrow is part of a group of civilians who solve cold cases. She finds the missing. They might all be civilians, but they all bring special skills to the table. Delilah spent a couple of years learning the P.I. and bounty hunter business. She’s the one who is going to expose Archer Radcliffe. Or exonerate him. She doesn’t really care as long as she can find his missing ex. So she learns everything she can about Archer, she finds the right place, the right time, and she dresses the part. Now all that’s left is to catch his attention.

Archer was attending an auction, and he wanted a certain necklace back. It had belonged to his family once, and he was going to buy it back. The beautiful woman bidding against him had taunted him, she had driven the price up, and she had piqued his interest. She wanted his attention, she got it. But he was a dangerous man with a dangerous reputation. She had better be prepared for what she asked for, because she was gonna get it.

When Delilah got close to Archer, she learned that the controlled ice man wasn’t so controlled. At least, not around her. And she kind of liked him that way. Archer out of control for her, was what she wanted most.

But someone didn’t want him getting close to her. And that someone was doing everything they could to hurt Archer, even if that meant hurting Delilah. What would happen if they got close to finding out who the culprit was? Would they up their game? Or would they show themselves? Delilah didn’t know, but Archer wasn’t going to find out. He wanted Delilah as far from harm as he could get. But she’s not letting him go that easily.

The two of them make a great team, and I like not only this new series, but the nod to Ms. Eden’s Wilde Ways series. Another fantastic Romantic Suspense by Cynthia Eden, Frozen In Ice kicks of what looks to be an exciting new series.
