1 . A terrificly romantic suspenseful read!
Posted December 31, 2008 by Lisa C , Potomac Falls, VAThis is one of my most favorite books of all time. I have read and reread this book more times than I can count. Derek and Lilly are fabulous. The characters and their interactions with each other are very real. Lilly is a country vet who finds herself in a heap of trouble. Derek is a rancher who looks for trouble as a TFlac operative, but Lilly is the biggest trouble he's ever known. He's been in love with her for 6 years, but she just can't seem to trust his feelings as something she can count on in the long run.
When Derek's personal and professional lives collide, Lilly is caught in the middle. Circumstance force him to do the unthinkable. He needs her help which places her in ever greater danger, but all he really wants to do is keep her safe and love her forever. Lilly tenaciously faces all her fears and helps Derek, but in the end can she trust him with her heart? That is the one fear she has the most trouble facing!
This story is more than just a romance novel. It is full of real suspense and nail biting action. I love it, and I think you will too.

Excerpt from On Thin Ice by Cherry Adair
The newborn calf lay curled in the straw at its mother's feet while the proud mama started licking it clean. Outside the glowing warmth of the birthing barn, night pressed icy black fingers against the windows, and snow lay thick on the ground.
Exhausted but triumphant, Dr. Lily Munroe tried to ignore the itchy, someone-was-watching-her sensation on the back of her neck, a creepy feeling she'd had off and on for several hours. She patted the cow's russet-colored rump. "You have a beautiful bouncing baby boy. Good job, Peaches."
"Peaches?" a familiar husky voice said behind her. "She's not a pet, Doc."
The straw at her feet rustled as Lily whirled around, hand to her throat. "Damn it! You scared me to death!"
Tall, dark and annoying.
With one shoulder resting against the planked wall, he looked as though he'd been there awhile. His physical presence was like a hard punch to Lily's chest, and her stomach did its usual betraying flip-flop at the sight of six foot four inches of pure, potent male. His lean, handsome face was ruddy with the cold, his glossy dark hair mussed sexily by the wind she heard howling outside.
Beneath her fingertips she felt the hard pounding of her heart, and hoped to hell Derek couldn't hear it. And if he could that he'd attribute it to the fright he'd just given her. The adrenaline rush made her feel light-headed. She ruthlessly tamped down her body's visceral reaction to the sight of him as she started cleaning up her instruments and other birthing paraphernalia from around the stall.
