It started with a kiss…

Having left his humanitarian posting in Africa to raise his two orphaned nieces in San Francisco, Dr Gavin Brice has enough on his plate without an inconvenient attraction to his new boss, the frosty Dr Virginia Potter. Especially considering that, ever since his arrival at Bayview Hospital, she’s clearly disapproved of his maverick ways.

But when Virginia meets his adorable girls and sees what makes the renegade surgeon tick, her relationship with him soon deepens into something unexpected. And with one amazing kiss lonely Virginia can feel the ice around her heart slowly beginning to thaw…

Any reader will know that when reading a book and it's the kind that makes you sit upright the one minute and makes your eyes gleam like you just found gold and the next your eyes are filled with tears and it feels like your heart is breaking, it's the kind of book that goes down in reading history without so much as a shimmer of doubt! The new read from Amy Ruttan is that and so much more. The read tells of Virginia Porter and her frosty heart that hates everything there is about Dr Gavin Brice and his maverick ways, but when his kisses start melting away the ice surrounding her heart she's all about forgetting hate and focusing on love but letting it all slot into place proves harder than creating ice in the desert heat! I loved this read from start to finish ! It felt as if I was right there with the author chipping away at the ice that surrounds Virginia's heart. I was overwhelmed with the intensity of the various emotions the author was pushing her characters through. The characters were so realistic, that at one stage during the read I wanted to grab Virginia slap sense into her because she made me so extremely furious, then the next I wanted to grab her, hug her and congratulate her on being so brave! It was as if I was truly right there living the all the emotions. The read was absolutely perfect in every way, the author kept my attention, had me grabbing onto every word, living every scene and truly letting me feel and live it all. I have only read one other book by this author and the first time around I was blow away with her brilliant work, but as it happens so many times for us readers, the second time around is a strike out as the author makes this huge impact on us in the first book and the second time around it seems to fall flat and the reads are lifeless and dull. This was so not the case in this read., the author did it even better than the first time!! Stunning heartfelt emotion, sweet sensual passion, vivid descriptions, beautiful characters and a mind blowing story that delivers an always memorable message. Surrounding your heart in ice is sometimes the only way to protect it from being ripped to shreds, but when the right person shows up ready to melt the ice no matter how frozen your heart may be, shut-up, take notes and go with the flow! I highly recommend this read for all fans of romance reads with amazing absolutely breathtaking scenes, to die for dialogue and everything else that is needed to make this a beyond awesome and WOW read! 5/5 star review "Heated kisses melt away her frozen heart"

I probably liked the hero's nieces better than him in some parts of this book, but the spark between the hero and heroine was good and enjoyable to read. Her growth as a character was particularly well written. The hero's actions were quite inconsiderate towards the two children he was supposed to be caring for. Every second sentence seemed to be pushing them off towards the babysitter. Not endearing.
