The Earl of Ice - Tour & Review

The Earl of Ice

Rollo Stannington, the Earl of Brockwood, is considered a wonderful catch by the mamas of the ton. He is young, handsome and extremely wealthy. What mother can resist having him as a son-in-law? If only their daughters didn’t pale and tremble in his presence and beat a hasty retreat as soon as they could! Rollo, nicknamed “The Earl of Ice” because of his frigid demeanor, welcomes this reaction. He has no intention of marrying. Ever.

Dianna Wells, a young debutante, is immune to Rollo’s coldness.  Where other ladies stand tongue tied before him, she chats gaily and comfortably with him. She even enjoys dancing with him. No one knows that Rollo and Diana share a devastating secret. One that draws them together yet will ultimately test their growing attraction to each other…

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review!

What I say: Rollo Stannington, the Earl of Brockwood detests society functions and has no desire to get married. Unfortunately for him, he's rich and titled, and of extremely handsome - so society ladies and his meddling family have other ideas. He counters this with a standoffish manner and abrupt attitude.

I have to admit it did take me a while to see the name Rollo and not think of Ragnar's brother in the Vikings TV show. The 'Earl of Ice' is more of a softy that I was expecting, but I liked his gruff exterior and found him highly entertaining. His iciness is largely down to a big secret he's been keeping and serves as the ultimate form of self preservation.

Dianna is sweet, charming and seemly unaffected by Rollo's iciness. I'm convinced she was born with extreme patience because I would have found Rollo's back-and-forth really annoying. She always managed to see the best in him. Dianna takes promises seriously and would never betray Rollo's trust.

The Earl of Ice is a short and lighthearted read without too much naughtiness, so blushing can be kept to a minimum.

3.5 Stars in my Sky!
