Overview

Sweeping from the cultured salons of 19th-century London to the wild Scottish Highlands, Jackie Ivie's seductive new novel weaves the tale of a desperate lady and a ruthless laird whose only common ground is the territory of desire. . .

A Lady Of Ice

Beautiful and elegant, Elise, the Duchess of Wynd, has survived among the nobility by carefully cultivating a façade of cutting wit and heartlessness. Nothing ruffles her. And no man can break through her defenses. . .

A Man Of Fire

A fierce Scottish warrior, Colin is the new Duke of MacGowan and—in polite circles—looked upon as no better than a barbarian. Nevertheless, he is a lord who brooks no defiance. . .and holds no rein on his pleasures. . .

A Promise Of Passion

Colin's very presence ties Elise's sharp-edged tongue: She is all too aware that he could be the answer to her prayers—or her worst nightmare.  For Elise harbors secrets that could change the course of both their lives. But before she can reveal them, she must make the wild knight her own. . .

Lady Elise, the young Dowager Duchess of Wynd, is known by all as 'The Ice Goddess'. She has survived living among the nobility by making all believe she has no heart or kindness. Nothing and no one can break through her calm, icy façade. No one recalls ever seeing her smile warmly, laugh gaily, or making friends. She needs no one. She depends only upon herself and her maid, Daisy. She refuses to ever marry again. ................................. Elise also has secrets. She's extremely good at keeping them. However, she promised her late sister that she would see to the care of Rory. Elise is to let Rory know his Scottish kin. Problem is that the father, Evan, is dead too. The only thing to do is meet Evan's brother, Colin, and inform the man of his illegitimate nephew. But Elise does not know that Colin is 'a big, bullheaded, boorish brute bred in the barbaric boundaries of a backwater country.' ................................... Colin, the new Duke of Gowan and Laird of MacGowan, is the very image of a fierce Scottish warrior. London's elite circle consider him a barbarian, though a rich one. Upon first sight of Elise their wills clash. Both are warriors among their own peers. Both have met their match! ................................ ***** Author Jackie Ivie succeeded in capturing my interest right at the beginning of the story and never letting me go. I understand now that Jackie Ivie enjoys pitting strong heroes and heroines against each other. ............................ The heroine, Elise, is no fainting violet who needs to be constantly rescued. Nor does she do things so incredibly stupid that I just want to slap her. As for the hero, Colin ... well, let's just say the author wrote his character perfectly: from the haughty Laird to the confused and caring man. ................................... An exceptional tale filled with honor, love, and witty banter that I am thrilled to highly endorse! OUTSTANDING! *****

I love romance novels and this was my first by Jackie Ivie. I did not enjoy this book at all. It was boring and the romance was horrible. I won't waste time reading another.
