Like the heroine of one of her romances, bestselling author Margie Silver was willing to rise to Cal Van Dyne's challenge. The arrogant tycoon vowed that Margie's sister would not marry his younger brother, and Margie was just as determined that the wedding would take place. Margie expected Cal's assault but not the cynical game of love he played with her on his lavish Flo ...more

 Danielle The Book Huntress (Angels Weep For Goodreads)
Fire and Ice is one of Diana Palmer's older books that I hadn't gotten the chance to read until now. I loved the humor and the snappy dialogue between the characters. Margie is fiesty enough to handle a man like Cal, even if he did have the ability to find her weak spots with pinpoint accuracy. However, she did the same for him. You could tell that if there was any spellcasting, they were both mutually affected. Both Margie and Cal had bad first marriages that scarred them and made the both hesi ...more

Wanna know why I like this book so much? The totally sappy ending! Gotta love it. I liked the heroine-strong, vulnerable, and not completely predicatable. The hero is about the same.

The other part I liked was the hero's mother...hey, I even have a "shelf" of books (2 so far, I think) about adorably meddling mothers, and this was suits!
4 Stars ~ Cannon's hugely successful and the conservative image he portrays has a lot to do with it. After his disastrous marriage, he'd kept his life and his family's under tight control, so there was no way his younger brother was going to marry any woman he hadn't vetted. Maggie is a best selling author of historical romance, and her novelist persona has a rather notorious reputation. Maggie would do anything for her younger sister, so when she's asked to keep her identity secret, she agrees ...more
Another much loved oldie for me! A very spitfile heroine and a very conservative hero, such an explosive combination!
Fire and Ice is the second book I have read by author Diana Palmer. This is a contemporary romance about the engagement of the much loved younger sister of Margie Silver and a young brother of billionaire Cal Van Dyne. Our hero of the romance,Cal Van Dyne is very against the engagement and finds the intended bride lacking in social skills necessary for his brothers professional growth. Having had one bad marriage under his belt he is soured to love and does not trust women in general. Our heroin ...more

It's not fair to rate the book only 2 stars because it felt dated. After all, I was reading an old copy. Still... 2 stars. An acceptable read, but ...

An easy read with a fantastic storyline
If you like romance you will love it

Insegurança, vulnerabilidade são as palavras chaves deste romance.

Arrogância, cinismo são as conseqüências.

E uma paixão desenfreada entre o magnata Cal Van Dyne e a escritora Margie Silver é a melhor solução para o romance.

Realmente Margie é fantástica, adoro a forma que ela trata o bonitão e chato Cal, tá pensando o que?


Todo personagem masculino da Diana Palmer são iguais, começamos odiando e no fim do romance estamos apaixonadas pelo dito cujo. Fazer o que

Recommends it for: those who love Diana Palmer books
A cutesy romance that is pretty typical of all Palmer romances, especially her earlier ones...a naive heroine, an arrogant, dominant, sometimes cruel hero, and a predictable romance. I enjoy reading Palmer's books most of the time, but she does tend to always follow the same formula.

If you've read other of Palmer's early works and liked them, you'll probably like this one, and if you've hated them, then you'll hate it.
Amanda Sheila
Well, it's Diana Palmer typical storyline.

So typical yet I don't mind. Mostly because I always liked Palmer's hostile hero. But this book, the hero isn't as 'awful' as I expected. Lack of angst, that's why this book isn't exactly my favorite.

But still, I enjoyed it.
Decididamente a love story from the 80's ... está tudo dito não?
