Book Tour and Giveaway - Melting the Ice Queen's Heart by Amy Ruttan

Melting the Ice Queen's Heart

By: Amy Ruttan

Releasing Feb 1st, 2014



It started with a kiss… 
Having left his humanitarian posting in Africa to raise his two orphaned nieces in San Francisco, Dr. Gavin Brice has enough on his plate without an inconvenient attraction to his new boss! The frosty Dr. Virginia Potter clearly disapproves of his maverick ways - but with one amazing kiss, the ice begins to thaw….


Gavin watched Virginia from across the table. This was not the cool, aloof and businesslike professional he’d been dealing with yesterday. This woman was not the ice queen.

This Virginia was warm and kind. She had an easy rapport with them. At the hospital there was a tangible barrier between Virginia and the other surgeons. A mix of fear and respect. The woman currently sitting in his dining room was not Dr. Virginia Potter, Chief of Surgery.

Only she was.

He was amazed at how well she got on with his nieces. Lily had been so closed off and cold with strangers since Casey had got sick and died. Even with him it had taken some time for Lily to warm up and trust him.

And you couldn’t blame Lily for that reaction. Death had hit her hard, twice, in her young life.

With Virginia, Lily was chatting happily and engaging her in conversation. A smile touched his lips as he watched the two of them talk. Virginia was asking Lily about dancing and school. Was this what it was like to have a real family dinner?

He wouldn’t know.

His parents had never been around. Casey and he had lived off of cereal and peanut-butter and jelly sandwiches. Sometimes, when Mom hadn’t gone shopping, there would only be enough bread or cereal for one. Those were the nights he’d gone to bed hungry, because he had been taking care of Casey.

Now he was taking care of Casey’s girls, making sure they wanted for nothing and that they were happy. It was why he was in the city instead of some far-flung country.

“I think your sister is out for the night. What do you think, Gavin?”

“What?” Gavin asked, shaking those painful childhood memories from his head. “What’s up?”

“Uncle Gavin, Rose is passed out in her chair.” Lily gazed at her little sister lovingly
