Product Description

From Amazon

Brianna Concannon is a woman with a rare gift for creating a home, and she makes use of this talent by running a bed-and-breakfast in a picturesque corner of Ireland. Mystery writer Grayson Thane is an American who grew up in an orphanage and has spent his life alone. A restless wanderer with a painful past, Grayson arrives at Blackthorn Cottage intent only on soaking up the Irish atmosphere and writing his next novel, but he finds far more than he bargained for. The beautiful, calm Brianna soothes his disquiet soul, and in her Grayson finds the home he hadn't realized he needed. Brianna knows that by falling for him, she risks her heart, already bruised and scarred by a young love who left her at the altar. But the yearning to let the American melt the ice around her cold exterior is irresistible. Unless Grayson can let go of his past to forge a future with her, Brianna may have gambled her heart in vain.

From Publishers Weekly

Roberts's second installment in her Born In trilogy (after Born in Fire) takes the reader back to Ireland, where Brianna Concannon uncovers some unexpected and disturbing details about her deceased father. While trying to turn the attic of her bed-and-breakfast into another guest room, Brianna finds a stock certificate from a nonexistent company called Triquarter Mining?no great surprise, as the elder Concannon had always had a weakness for worthless ventures. More surprising is a set of old, passionate love letters written to her father 28 years before by a woman who was not Brianna's mother. This discovery is overshadowed by the arrival of famed mystery novelist Grayson Thane, who is to be her guest?and her lover (at least until his next novel is finished). The scope of Roberts's latest offering is limited to Brianna's and Gray's affair, leaving the reader impatient about fleeting references to footprints outside Brianna's window and a messy break-in at the B&B. Still, the pace of the book is smooth and even, and the writing captures the charisma and earthy charm of Ireland and the gentleness of its people while setting the tone for Born in Shame, the final story.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Anne Cahill on July 26 2001
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Book 2 of the "Born In" trilogy was actually my first introduction to Nora Roberts romances. I read it when I had just discovered her new romantic suspense novels, and a friend loaned me this one. It was wonderful, and now I've finally made my way back to it -- this time in its proper place in the trilogy.
The heroine, Brianna Concannon, is almost too good and too sweet to be true. Her fiery sister Maggie seems so much more human. Yet in this novel, Brianna shows her true grit as well -- underneath that almost pathetic desire to please is a will of steel and a fierce loyalty to even those who don't inspire or deserve it.
Yet it is the "hero", reformed teenage delinquent turned famous mystery novelist Grayson Thane, that really makes this one worth the read. Gray sees Ireland through first-timer's eyes, and makes the reader see it for the first time too (you can't not want to visit there after reading the descriptions in this book). Through it all is his odyssey to find a home he didn't even know he needed -- and certainly didn't want. Yet here, in this tiny village in the west counties of Ireland, he feels for the first time in his life the lure of putting down roots-- and has to decide whether to act upon it or not.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
"Born in Ice" is the second book in Nora Roberts' exceptional "Born in" trilogy. The writing in this book is first rate and the story will have you enchanted.
Brianna Concannon, sister of Maggie, whose story was told in the first book, is a sweet, giving and selfless person. But in this story we get to see the strong and fiercely loyal woman beneath this soft exterior.
When best-selling mystery novelist Grayson Thane arrives at Brianna's B&B he stirs all kinds of desires inside her. Grayson feels drawn to this lovely and compelling woman and the relationship that develops between these two is moving and delightful!
Grayson is a wonderful hero who all readers will love. His impressions of Ireland as he sees it for the first time give the reader a perfect picture of this hauntingly beautiful country.
As Brianna and Grayson fall in love, Grayson, a man who has never had the need or desire to put down roots, begins to wish for a home and a family as he never has before. In the end, Grayson must choose between the life he knows and is content with and the love he feels for Brianna. This story will touch your heart.
I highly recommend this book and the other two in the trilogy. Although I am a fan of all of NR's work, I really believe that this trilogy is one of her very best. So read it today!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
while i will admit that when you compare this with the first of the three in the series, this will not be as good, but it is still a great book. it captured my attention well enough as well as making me want more.
brianna enjoys the most of simple things; her garden, her home, pleasing her guests, cooking and even cleaning. grayson is a writer, coming to to stay at her inn in order to write his next bestselling book. the moment he walks in from the rain, he is hooked not only on a land he'd never realized existed, but on feelings he didnt believe in.
this is a genuine love story where the characters develop into themselves and then eachother. enjoyed the read and on to the next ::smile

I have read this book 3 times now, silly as that sounds. But the story is fun and compelling. A great combination for a romance. Book two of the "Born in..." trilogy, it's my favorite in the set. The characters are very likeable, you'll find yourself cheering them on. Anyone interested in Ireland, even in a remote kind of way, will enjoy the descriptions of the land and people, the lilt of the accents, and the magic of the place. Grayson Thane--what a great name! Makes me wanna run off to Ireland, open a bed and breakfast and write a novel. Guess this book is rather inspiring!

Having said that, let me say that this trilogy of Born In is one of my favorites. In fact, this set was my introduction to Nora Roberts and I have been a big fan ever after.
If you enjoy Nora Roberts books, you will enjoy this one.
If you have not read any Nora Roberts books, you are in for a treat. The way Nora Roberts weaves romance with healing, familial ties, and Ireland is wonderful.
Although this makes a great bathtub book, it is much more than that.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
As a long-time reader of Ms. Roberts, I can assure others that each title is a gift, and "BORN IN ICE" is made to order. This beautiful and touching love story is surrounded by the breathtaking beauty and magic of Ireland. We find Brianna Concannon , a quiet woman whose only desire for success is in striving to make a temporary home for the guests of her bed and breakfast inn, and trying to keep the peace in a family torm apart by mistakes of the past . Enter Grayson Thane, an internationally famous author trying to forget his own troubled past and maintain the life he has painstakinglg created for himself. Not at all interested in putting down roots, he can't fight the pull he feels to this delicate woman who longs for a peaceful, quiet existence and a man to give her heart to . Add in the fire of Maggie Concannon and power of Rogan Sweeney (returning from "Born In Fire")and you have a passionate romance that with pull at your heart, and stay with you long after the last page has been savoured. Thanks again Nora, for yet another glorious love story !
