The run was perfect. Powdery-soft, lightly compacted snow, sky so blue it almost hurt to look at, air so crisp it could cut glass. Darci was in heaven. Her thighs, calves and butt burned like hell and her breath felt like shaved ice in her lungs -- just the way she loved it.

Whizzing down the slope, trees and craggy outcrops mere smudges of blurring color in her peripheral vision, she couldn’t help but grin, already picturing Crystal’s face. The American would spit chips when Darci swooshed into their --

The slope opened below Darci -- completely and abruptly -- and swallowed her whole. “Shit!” The word had barely left her lips when she smacked -- skis first -- against something that felt like frozen concrete.

Pain lashed through her body, making her cry out. “Fuck!” Eyes squeezed shut, she planted her hands on the ground and slowly, hesitantly, pushed herself into an upright position, waiting to be assaulted by fresh agony.

None came. “Oh, thank God!”

Her gushed exclamation bounced around a space that sounded huge, and Darci opened her eyes. An ice cavern. She’d dropped into an ice cavern. Damn it.

Releasing her skis, now just two shattered strips of glass fiber and composite materials, she got to her feet, taking in her predicament. A thick fog of dread rolled through her. The ice cavern was large, yet claustrophobia crept through Darci. Frowning, she looked up. The small hole she’d fallen through was too high to reach even if she jumped. Her frown deepened. “How the hell am I going to get out?” she muttered.

“That didn’t look like fun.”

Starting, Darci whipped her head around. A tall man stood behind her, long, white silken hair falling around a face of cold beauty, blue eyes so brilliant she felt her skin tingle. His intense stare locked on her and it took a few moments before Darci realized he was naked.
