Title: The Ice Princess
Series: Princes Trilogy 3.5
Author: Elizabeth Hoyt
Genre: Historical Romance
SEVEN NIGHTS OF SIN
As the madam of Aphrodite’s Grotto, the most infamous brothel in London, Coral Smythe knows everything possible about men’s needs and desires. Yet she’s never experienced the love of a single man-not even that of Captain Isaac Wargate whose hawk-like eyes stare at her with both condemnation…and lust.
SEVEN NIGHTS OF ECSTASY
Captain Wargate heartily disapproves of the sensuous madam who always wears a golden mask. She lures his officers from both his ship and their duty. But when Coral herself is offered up as the prize in a game of chance, Wargate impulsively enters…and wins.
SEVEN NIGHTS OF LOVE
Now the puritanical navy captain has just seven nights to learn everything he can about the mysterious madam and what she knows of a man’s desires. But when Coral is threatened by the new owner of Aphrodite’s Grotto, will Wargate take a chance on the woman beneath the mask…and on love?

“Much of life is a game. If played skillfully, with an intelligent and fascinating opponent, it can become almost a dance. One challenges and moves, the other teases and skips away, only to dart forward later and strike a telling blow.”― Elizabeth Hoyt, The Ice Princess
In my opinion Elizabeth Hoyt can do no wrong. Her historical romances are just the best! This one is a short story tagged onto the end of the Princes Trilogy. It has no real connection to it other than featuring a character mentioned in the series. Mainly in the first book The Raven Prince (which you should definitely read).
This story is super short, even shorter than it’s page count implies. Due to it’s length, the instalove feels a bit heavy and the ending is pretty rushed but it’s a great story if you’re familiar with the character and fancy a quickie 😉

Hi everyone, I had a bit of a weird reading week this week. I haven’t actually managed to finish anything. I started 3 books and felt a bit meh about them. I’ve almost finished the next book in the Arcana Chronicles but that’s a reread so I knew going in that I’d love it. Fingers… Read more
Hi everyone, instead of doing monthly wrap-ups I’ve decided to give weekly ones a go. With monthly ones I’ve usually forgotten a lot about the books I read early in the month and I think it gets a bit tiresome to sit there and talk about like 10 books in one go. Hopefully, we’ll have… Read more
