As for a quick summary, the story is about the third of the Wilde sisters, all of whom have masqueraded as boys since their pa forced them to join the Civil War. Bailey Wilde is the last one--her sisters have shed masculine wear, grown out their hair, and married good men--but Bailey is determined to cling to her disguise and her small but thriving ranch in the opening of a canyon owned by the hard-nosed Gage Coulter.
(And, since this is a romance, you can now make your own guesses about who the players in the marriage of convenience are.)
It is also about Gage Coulter, who finds himself on the receiving end of life-threatening traps and must figure out who would want to kill him. Could it be Bailey? Could it be someone else? And can he help Bailey trust God and embrace her femininity after the horrors of war?
If you like an action-filled romance (and it does have romance, fyi), give Mary Connealy a try!
I received a complimentary copy of Fire & Ice from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
