This sequel to Maggie's Dad is one of the author's best! 24 July 1999
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is an incredibly sad book. Dawson and Barrie are step-siblings. She always had a crush on him but he distrusts women. During a family vacation in the French Riviera, the shy Barrie gets up the nerve to flirt with Dawson and, cynic that he is, he assumes she just wants to sleep with him. Anyway, he goes to her room that night and they have some less than memorable sex. She is completely ashamed of herself and he is too stuned to say much (what he does say is insulting). What follows is a series of misunderstandings, and, more than five years later, they are both painfully repressed and barely speaking to each other. I cried as I read about about all the hurts thay had inflicted on each other, intentionally or not. The path they took to find each other after everything was long and bumpy and well worth the read.

Maggie's Dad and Man of Ice. WOW! definitely this set is a keeper!
Ah, here we have Dawson Rutherford, age 36 [whee! a man with immense problems for his age] Angry, bitter, distrustful and need I mention jealous?
He is using the beauteous redheaded widow, Leslie Holton and his desire to purchase her property that lies between his ranch and Powell Long's ranch, to lure Barrie back to the home ranch in Sheridan.
You have to hurt for them as you become aware of their torment.
Five years earlier, Dawson the cynical cad took Barrie in a fit of passion. Whoa! you won't believe the emotional trauma that esculates and nearly destroys these two people.
Barrie, now 26, avoids Dawson like the plague and flirts with men by the dozens and Dawson avoids women and has become the "man of ice". Rumors abound about his not likeing women.
Dawson talks Barrie into excepting an emerald "engagement" ring to give the appearance of impending marriage to the widow, Holton.
I really enjoyed Leslie's insight into the facade. Again I don't want to give away the whole gist of the story but the story is heart rending and will keep you reading it in one sitting. It is power-packed with emotion and hard to put down.
Again HIGHLY RECOMMENDED --?? prove it to yourself [even the cover guy SD 1000 looks right for the story]

My favorite Diana Palmer 2 Aug. 2002
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I think I have read this book over 10 times. My heart just aches when I read of how Barrie still loves Dawson despite the way he has always treated her. She tries to avoid him and let go of her love but she just can't. She has to help him no matter what the cost to her emotion. When Dawson finally tells her about his past and shows her his vulnrablity you will agree that this is Diana Palmer at her best.

This intensely emotional love story has some very dark moments, 24 Feb. 2012

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Man of Ice by Diana Palmer
Silhouette Desire #1000 ~ May 1996

For the past five years, Dawson Rutherford had let his stepsister continue to avoid him. He'd hurt her terribly and hated himself for it. For years he had thought she was just like her mother, teasing and taunting men to get what she wanted. One night of passion, to his shock, he discovered that Barrie had always been innocent, when he had lost control and taken her virginity and he'd hurt her physically and emotionally. Afraid of his own passion for Barrie, he'd treated her coldly as if she deserved his hate. That night had left such bitter scars on Barrie, not only had he taken her forcefully, he'd shattered her heart. Just the thought of any man touching her was enough to make her nauseous. Now Dawson learnt another bitter truth, that their night of passion had had consequences, and that Barrie had miscarried his child without ever having told him she'd ever been pregnant. She'd born it all alone. Somehow, he had to get her back to the family ranch and make it all up to her. Because he too carried deep scars from that night when he'd lost total control and only Barrie would be able to make him whole again.

Well! This story held a few surprises. After reading "Maggie's Dad" I was intrigued by Antonia's best friend Barrie and her strained relationship with her stepbrother Dawson, so I sought this one out. At first I was sure I wasn't going to enjoy this story. Dawson's treatment of Barrie was so emotionally brutal, I didn't think he could be redeemed. But slowly as Barrie begins to realize that Dawson hates himself and not her, we see the why. Barrie at first seemed like that deer with the big eyes in the headlights, so shocked and afraid, both of Dawson's physical side and for the love she can't stop feeling for him. There are a few very touching scenes where Dawson's guard is down and Barrie sees completely into the heart of the man she's always loved. And with her new knowledge, she's no longer that frightened deer, she becomes a woman willing to fight for the man she loves. After my shaky feelings at the beginning of the story, I'm very pleased that Ms Palmer was able to make this all work out. Though this intensely emotional love story has some very dark moments, the journey to healing and the HEA is a very satisfying one.

Okay 9 Sept. 2014
By RM King - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I'm not particularly fond of DP's heroes (and I usually avoid reading her books), but it was an interesting enough read to hold my interest. However, I didn't quite connect to the main characters because I couldn't understand what the heck Barrie ever saw in Dawson. He was so up and down; one minute he wants her, the next he insults and belittles her. If it had only happened a time or two, I would've gotten over it, but it happened the whole way through the book...right up until maybe the last few pages. Not only was it exhausting, I ended up skimming parts because Dawson's attitude and behaviour towards Barrie was annoying. So I didn't quite understand what the attraction was, but it wasn't necessarily a bad story. If you're a DP fan, I have no doubt you'll enjoy this story. But for me, it was just an okay read.
