First, I like the heroine, Houston She s supposed to be demure ladylike, nicknamed the ice queen by her loving fiance hmm She has a good heart though, a decent set of morals She also has a secret Once a week, she disguises herself as an old woman goes to a mining camp to give aid to the poor She always tries to do the right thing she s very loyal Unlike some people in her life Houston has a twin sister Blair I really loved this one up until the end, when the problems with the mines overtook the romance and the hero was still reluctant to trust the heroine s feelings for him It has the usual Deveraux feeling where the hero is a little rough aroun From Ice to SteamWell I am off to buy the second half of this incredible duology, Twin of Fire This was a very different story and I was very pleased with the results of the twin sisters switching places for that one event, even though I see some readers have condemned Houston s sister for going to far with her fiancee Her explanation was reasonable and the results understandable I suggest you read this very well written book containing many insecure people, and decide for yourself I found t From Ice to SteamWell I am off to buy the

one, a short story called The Matchmakers featuring the namesake of the hero in this story, Kane Taggart I guess this tells me I should just avoid anything of hers that isn t written in the Taggart
