Because this is a series, I think much is lost in reading book 2 without first reading book 1.  Major Caine Winters, 38 years old, is a dark man, between his cruel lessons under his late father and his time in the war.   Elinor Kendall, losing both her parent while living in Paris, is his ward and he sends her off to schools, not wanted her to stay at Winterhill.  As she matures, he is even more adamant about her staying away and when her education is complete he wants her to stay in London with his cousin.  Now at 19 years old, she defies his orders and shows up at Winterhill, rather than attend "Season" in London. She tells him that she is willing to become his housekeeper since she is trained in domestic skills.  He is still upset with her and tells her that if she stays it will be on one condition, she must follow his rules and accept his discipline. Now Elinor is "in love" with Winter and whether he wants to admit it, he has deep affections for her, and a strong sexual attraction to her,  but he feels he is too old for her.  His discipline is very strict and overly severe.  He doesn't take her "virginity" per se, but he does use her mouth and uses anal sex as punishment, besides the heavy spankings.

This book really kept me reading to find out if the two main characters were ever going to admit their feelings for each other and get together!! I'm not sure if I liked that or not, but it sure made me read!! There were lots of spankings, and sometimes harsh ones. I will say that I found the ending to be my favorite part and will definitely be looking into more in this series.

I really enjoyed this twist on a guardian/ward DD story.  Don't get me wrong it's still Elinor getting the discipline, but she is definitely not a quiet miss being persued by her guardian!  But don't worry, Major Winter know's just how to deal with her.

This story builds slowly and keeps you guessing about what's happening. Someone tries to kill Elinor in the very beginning and you wonder what's going on with that. The relationship between the Major and Elinor develops very slowly and again keeps you guessing. Is he an uncaring strict guardian?? Then as you read further you begin to see how much they love each other. Elinor is definitely strong and smart. I do think it would add more to the understanding of this book if you read the first book in the series " Taming His Scandalous Countess". Timberlan127

I enjoyed this one about a Major who falls in love with his ward when she grows up. They had a lot of chemistry. I was a little confused during parts of the plot, then I found out that it was the second in a series. Now I will have to read the first book!

This is a story about Elinor who becomes the ward of Major Caine Winter. He is attracted to her in a way he doesn't deem appropriate and continues sending her for more schooling in an attempt to keep her away from home. Eventually, she does return home, refusing to have her own season as all she wishes to do is become his housekeeper. He begins to administer discipline and she discovers that she enjoys his harsh hand. When her lessons extend to sexual training, she realizes that not only does she love him, he loves her but refuses to admit it. She and her former beau, work out a plan where they hopefully can all find happiness. I enjoyed the historical elements but wish the story were longer and not as confusing in parts. If you enjoy a quick read which includes DD, you should enjoy this one.

I agree with one of the other reviews that said I didn't think I was going to like it when I first started reading but that changed pretty quickly. I found myself not wanting to put it down which to me is a great compliment

Well when I first started this book I wasn't sure I liked it.  Caine seemed so harsh and unlovable.  But as I continued to read first you get the sense that Elinor doesn't care how harsh he is she still cares.  And then you start to get a better picture of Caine and you soften to him as well.  Loved the ending and the fact that Elinor has a strength of her own and isn't afraid to use your brain.

I enjoyed this second edition of The Cold Hearts series as much as the first. Major Caine Winter and Elinor Kendall's relationship starts as guardian and ward but it doesn't take long for both of them to have feelings for the other. Elinor yearns for Major to see her as a woman and take her as his wife. Major is too concerned about the scandal it would cause if he took her as his wife, not to mention his sexual proclivities tend to run on the wild and dominant side. Surely Elinor is to much of a lady and will want a gentleman in her bed. Their struggle leads to healing when people in his life make him see clearly. Along with their journey we also get a bit of a mystery when someone takes a shot at Elinor. I really liked reading about Major and Elinor but the relationship between Winter, Frost and Snow was my favorite. It's not often that there are such strong ties between male characters. The author does a great job of creating a close relationship while still letting them be men. Also, kudos for the connection between the series name and men's names; I thought it was fun.

This is a great book. It is the sequel to Taming His Scandalous Countess. This is the story of Winter and Elinor. When she was young, Winter saved her by making her his ward. As she got older, he fell in love with her. Of course, he didn’t know that it was love, he thought it was just desire. He sent her away to finishing school so that he would not take her. Unfortunately (or fortunately) Elinor has also realized that she loves him. There are spankings and discipline throughout this story. Most of them are deserved. The punishments are quite severe and very hot. And, of course, there is a HEA. I highly recommend this book. If you haven’t read the first book, please do so, it helps explain who is trying to kill them. I can’t wait until Frost’s story comes out! Definitely 5 stars!

This was a very romantic story with lots of BDSM that in the beginning it was very harsh. This was an awesome journey in which a very alpha male and a smart feisty heroin who  knows what she wants, and works hard to get it.

I would highly recommend this book! I can be very picky about historical DD stories and I don’t have a single complaint about this book. There were hot spanking scenes and wonderful romance between Winter and Elinor. Elinor is Winter’s bunt is a mature, strong, and intelligent heroine. Elinor returns home from school and is determined to stay at Winter’s estate. Winter is strong, dominant hero but is caring and compassionate with Elinor. Winter is battling his inner demons throughout the book but luckily Elinor is strong. Great book!

This is a very good spanking and discipline story that takes place in old England. The Major has to deal with a headstrong young ward that he secretly graves and that secretly loves him. Action packed story with intrigue, romance and of coarse good old fashioned discipline . You will love it! And it comes with both an HEA and a cliff hanger leading into the next story. Highly recommend. An Arc copy was provided by blushing books for my honest review...chelle
