I have read all of her books. I love when authors make new stories out of secondary characters. My only complaint was it was too short. These characters could of been developed into a full length novel.

The Ice Princess is a great short read.
Coral is a woman who hides herself behind a mask and never lets anyone see the true woman. She started selling her body when she was fourteen to help her sister and herself survive. She changed her name to Aphrodite and hasn’t slept with a man in two years.
Captain Wargate just wants to get his crew and make sure they don’t get into trouble at the Grotto. He has been wanting Coral for awhile but hides his feelings. Isaac makes Coral think he doesn’t like her and that’s the way it is. Until one night Coral is the prize in a card game and Isaac wins her.
I enjoyed watching Isaac court Coral. She didnt know how to take him because all her defences start coming down. He gets her to trust him enough to take off her mask and lets him see the woman underneath.
It was great being able to meet the real Isaac and Coral and watching them start trusting each other. I like Elizabeth Hoyt’s books and enjoy the way she writes. Thanks for a great story.

"The Ice Princess" by Elizabeth Holt was greatly enjoyed short but sweet read. This was one of this author 'Princess Trilogys' and could be considered a novella...which tells the story of Ms. Coral Smythe, who had owned the
Aphrodite Grotto...which was a famous brothel in London. A problem comes
up where Coral loses control of ownership and then she is auctioned off in a 'loop game' where the winner gets to spend seven nights with her. From there this story takes off and this is where I say you must pick up "The Ice Princess" to see how this will come out. I really admired this heroine(Coral) because
even in a bad situation, she does make the best of it. The hero (Issac) also proves to be a very interesting person and I will just stop at that. Pick up the read and you will see how he becomes a sweetheart with his only intentions are that of saving this damsel in distress.
I thought "The Ice Princess" was a very sweet, adorable, short, romantic, and steamy story and if you like that... I would definitely recommend this read as a excellence choice of a read for you.

ABOUT THE BOOK:
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?
REVIEW: Ms. Hoyt has managed to create a spell bound story which shows the path of changes, love, and desires. I enjoyed the overall story and did find that it was a quick read – mostly due to the fact that I didn’t want to put it down. While I wished it had been a bit longer, I cherished each page that passed.
Aphrodite is the supreme chided woman who has wrapped herself in a ball of protection from everything outside. She alludes to the presence of confidence when in all actuality deep down, she’s got insecurities to make any one pause.
Captain Isaac is the ultimate hero who attempts to fight his feelings for this very public woman, but manages to be ensnared, not only by her beauty but deeper inside to the true woman.
I liked the exchanges between these two and found that Ms. Hoyt did a great job at keeping the tension rising and showing each step they took in order to overcome obstacles. The chapters transitioned smoothly and the writing was spot on. The only thing I didn’t like was that the ending seemed a bit rushed and out of place. Other than that, it’s a historical read I’d recommend for someone looking to get through a steamy story quick. I give this read four out of five stars.

This was a companion novella to Elizabeth Hoyt’s Princes Trilogy. You don’t need to have read any of the other books to enjoy The Ice Princess. Again, the author writes about two characters not typically the stars of historical romances- a captain from the British Navy and a madam. Yet it worked. For those who want a shorter read about love and second chances, this is a great book and also a good introduction to the author’s writing style. As soon as I get the chance to read them, I’ll be buying the first three books of this series.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
