The Ice Princess by Elizabeth Hoyt Review

Title: The Ice Princess

Series: Princes Trilogy 3.5

Author: Elizabeth Hoyt

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.

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.

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?

The Ice Princess Princes Trilogy 4 Elizabeth Hoyt Elaine Howlin Bookstagram

“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
Book Review Elaine Howlin Book Blog

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 😉
