    Emotional Historical

    Following the companion novel, LORD OF FIRE, this newest Foley work, the story of twin Damien Knight, is the perfect complement to the earlier release. Colonel and earl Damien Knight has chosen a reclusive existence at his estate in Berkshire following traumatic warfare in the Napoleonic wars. Haunted by post-traumatic stress disorder, Damien has determined that he is unfit for company when certain sounds cause him to relive battlefield memories. <br><br> But when twin brother Lucien informs Damien that fellow soldier, Major Jason Sherbrooke, has died, Damien must take responsibility as a guardian for Sherbrooke¿s illegitimate niece, Miranda FitzHubert. Journeying to Yardley School to inform his ward of her uncle¿s demise, Damien is in for quite a surprise, as the lovely Miranda is nineteen, and not the child that he expected. When he removes Miranda from the school, she is forced to trust him as she exposes the director of the school for his lechery. This trust is only the beginning of many tender exchanges between the two, which elevate their romance to a level not often found in this genre. <br><br> While staying with Damien¿s family in London, Miranda becomes the toast of the town, enthralling all with her beauty and charm. Everyone, it seems, but Damien, who has distanced himself, fearing their mutual attraction, and the harm he almost caused Miranda during one of his battlefield nightmares. But Damien¿s military instincts hone in when he discovers that Miranda is in danger. Unwittingly, he falls prey to her charm and healing nature as she comforts him in his hour of need. <br><br> Who can resist a war hero in his darkest hour? In a truly memorable love scene, Miranda does the unthinkable-she overcomes her fear of Damien¿s dark side to become someone he can lean on and trust, just has he has become her pillar of strength. Tumultuous love scenes find the reader hooked to the last page, yearning to learn if the love between two deeply-scarred people can heal them and make them whole again.

    more from this reviewer

    Damian, the Earl of Winterly, returned from the war with Napoleo

    Damian, the Earl of Winterly, returned from the war with Napoleon scarred for life. Every time he heard a sudden, loud noise, his mind was plunged back to the battlefield. Immediately, he became a ruthless killing machine, literally ripping out the throats of his assailants with his bare hands! Although it is long past time for him to secure a wife and settle down, Damian is troubled. What if he unleashed such violence on his family or on an innocent? For their own protection, Damian Knight set himself aloof from society.
    Thankfully, fate intervenes. Upon the death of one of his officers, Damian becomes the guardian of Miranda FitzHubert. He has no idea how to take care of a child, but Miranda surprises him. His ward is no child. The graceful, long haired beauty rocks him to his soul, touching his heart in a way Damian couldn’t foresee. Still, if he cares for her, he must keep Miranda at a distance.
    Miranda, however, has ideas of her own. Miss FitzHubert continues to prod the remote Earl of Winterly, little by little revealing the man within. Killing angel or vengeful demon – which is Damian Knight? As an adversary closes in on Miranda, she may very well need both.

    Tortured hero

    Damien Knight is a tortured hero, but a hero nevertheless. He is quick to take action to protect those unable to protect themselves. Good, quick read. I suggest beginning at #1 in the series and reading through them in order.

    Excellent Read

    Love #1, #2 and now #3.....This one of the second twin brother (actually first born) was great. Gaelen hooks you in and keeps it going. I started with #1 and finished the series of these siblings. Couldn't put it down as I read more. Will definitely read more of her's.

    Emotional and Wonderful

    I read Lord of Fire first, and fell in love with Lucien, until the end, when Damien's 'weakness' is made evident... the story of Damien and Miranda, and his redemption through her love touched my heart... Damien's PTSD hits so close to home, and this could very well have been the story of my husband and i... it was unbelievably wonderful. the historical accuracy is amazing as well!!! I read it in one day...

    Very good writer

    I have read all three in this series. I liked all of them but I liked this one the most. I would have given 5 stars to all three books except for one thing that bothered me. Might not bother anyone else. The characters, Bel, Alice and Miranda just didn't play right with the first "intimacies". Each first "intimacy" seemed to degrade the wonderful love each couple shared or it didn't seem to fit into to the developement of their characters. Bel didn't fit neither would it for Alice. (Miranda's, I didn't like that at all, gross) Otherwise, Ms. Foley is an excellent writer on historical themes, keeping you captivated, very intriguing and you love the romance that brings these couples together. (except, for me, their initial intimacies) Worth the read though. Read "The Duke" and "Lord of Fire" first to get full impact.

    Will the Greatness never End!

    It has been proved that Ms.Foley likes to write is sets of three. In this particular trio we meet the eldest brothers of the Knight Clan and so like the precedents set by Ms. Foley in the past, Lord of Ice is no different. A gut-renching love story with two and may I repeat TWO climaxes that keeps you from sleeping until you are through. Have no doubt that Foley is at top form!
