About the Author

Victoria lives on the island of Newfoundland, and is fiercely proud of her home. She can imagine no better setting for her works, and hopes that her readers will one day come to witness Newfoundland and Labrador's rustic beauty for themselves. 

She was born in St. John's, and raised above her family's fish and chips restaurant. She has traveled and lived in other parts of Canada, but chose to make her home where her heart has long resided. Victoria has a degree in History from Memorial University of Newfoundland, with a minor in Newfoundland Studies. The only thing that stands between her and a Master's degree in History from Simon Fraser University in British Columbia is her thesis. She has a background in broadcast journalism, advertising, and marketing. She is a member of the Romance Writers of America, and the Romance Writers or Atlantic Canada. 

Victoria counts herself lucky to be surrounded by an incredibly supportive family, and thanks her husband daily for his unerring faith in her, and for being a wonderful father to their infant son.

Fun, light and refreshing love story! I have just finished reading HARD AS ICE, written by Victoria Barbour; it was so romantic to read! Previously, I have read her first book Against Her Rules in the Heart’s Ease Series, and found Hard as Ice as much fun to read! I enjoyed her characters Daphne and Jack and the setting in Newfoundland great! We meet again, the characters Campbell and Elsie from her first book; Daphne is Campbell’s sister. The story starts as the four meet during a wedding! It’s a charming romance filled with love and humor, I had to giggle during some scenes. There’s a scene when some women, who have had a couple of drinks and are talking…one with a Scottish accent and one with a Newfoundland dialect….then when Campbell compared Daphne from an ice queen to an iceberg, you have to read to find out why! The end was so romantic! If you love contemporary romance, then HARD AS ICE is perfect for you! I generally don't read contemporary, but I knew Ms. Barbour’s style of writing and loved that the story was set in a small Canadian town. I am looking forward to read her third book PLAY ME.

A Review of Hard As Ice (Heart's Ease, #2) by Victoria Barbour The king of the ice meets the queen of ice - 5 stars The first time Daphne Scott met hunky hockey superstar Jack Walsh, she was hungover and more than a little irritable. Still, it was hard to deny that he was hotter than Adonis—even if he did know it. The second time Jack met the sexy Scottish beauty Daphne, he had a concussion and wanted nothing more than to get home to Heart’s Ease so he could recover. He didn’t expect the ice queen to become his best medicine. A whirlwind romance at the Heart’s Ease Inn seems like the best prescription for them both. Until the real world creeps in, forcing them to learn that making a long-distance relationship work is harder than either imagined. When their careers threaten to put half a world between them, they must make a choice. Have they taken on a task harder than the very ice he skates on? We first met Daphne in the first book of the series, as she is Cam's sister. In this book, we meet Jack, who is one of Elsie's many cousins. It just so happens that Daphne met him the morning after Cam and Elsie's wedding, when she woke up with a major hangover on his Mother's couch. I loved the chemistry between these two and how much Daphne tried to deny her feelings for him. Victoria's descriptions of Newfoundland and the people of that area make me wish I could visit there myself. You really don't want to miss this series. Although they are stand alone books, without cliffhangers, you should read them in order since many of the characters are from the first book. Great storytelling! ********** **Complimentary Copy provided by Author for an honest review.**
