Sigurd is having a bad day. His ship
was crippled in a tremendous storm and now he finds himself
in a kingdom of ice. However, the beautiful angel that is
nursing him back to health is a gift. The more Sigurd tries
to get her into his bed the harder she resists. But Fate
has other plans for him…and when the King of the island
tells Sigurd what he wants from him Sigurd needs to decide
what he wants for his future. Is it a Princess for a bride
or a life out at sea…
Princess Mandara has a peaceful life
working as a healer in her village and tending her crops of
flowers and honey. When a ship-full of Viking sailors wash
ashore she immediately goes to lend a hand in healing them.
Taking charge of the most grievously injured – the captain,
Princess Dara ends up with her hands full. As danger
approaches Dara is forced to face the possibility of
entering a marriage without love. But will she be able to
win Sigurd’s love and offer her own love in return?
The Ice Princess is a historical romance that
involves Vikings, greed, love and a little bit of kink.
Dara is an odd combination of assertiveness and shyness that
make her difficult to understand or empathize with. Sigurd,
however, is your stereotypical Viking with a harsh and
dominating attitude for women. Dara and Sigurd make a
strange combination as they each change to accommodate the
other in unexpected and mind-boggling ways. Throw in an
unexpected prophesy and unlikely plot twists and you end up
with a book that is interesting but not entirely engaging.
The addition of the BDSM into the relationship between Dara
and Sigurd is erotic but it only serves to highlight the
inconsistencies in the characters’ behavior. The Ice
Princess is not a book for a day when you are
looking for an engrossing read, but a book for a day you are
looking for some mindless and erotic entertainment.
