After the death of her guardian Tanya Kirova was doomed to spend the rest of her life stuck in the Russian countryside when fate smiled on her with the arrival of her distant relatives Alexei and Marie Kirova graciously allowed her into their home for a few weeks in order to experience the wonders of St Petersburg before she was sent to live with yet another elderly relative just doing their Christian duty Tanya was delighted to explore Russia s most wondrous city and was eagerly determined to bottle up every new experience It was at her first ball where she caught the eye of Prince Nikolai Volkhov and her innocent eagerness to explore her hosts staircase was the first step in thawing out the man known as the Ice King Prince Nikolai s deadened demeanor was known to everyone within the Russian aristocracy and so it was with wonder and awe that they watched the little nobody from Yaroslavl melt the Ice King Nikolai wonders if he might let go of his ghosts with Tanya by his side but he also wonders if his past misdeeds may be too much for her to understand It is with a heavy heart that the Ice King bares his soul and prays as does all of Russia that his Tanya finds it within herself to set him free Foolish man He had nothing in his past that needed to be forgiven If anything the only thing he needed was a great big hug Nikolai was a wonderful hero While known as the Ice King this hero was far from icy He was actually sweet kind yes I said kind so deal with it Nikolai considerate witty and so full of heart that I wanted to gather him up in my arms and rain kisses and hugs upon him While Nikolai definitely showed moments of dry witI m afraid I was showing off to impress youBut you might have fallen Tanya said faintly gazing at him with a mixture of horror and incredulityIn which case presumably you would not have been impressed after allhe is not a humorous man And while I definitely saw moments of unhappiness in his character I never saw moments of ice either His outlook on life was certainly dour thanks to his Rebecca esue witch of a wife but from the moment we meet him he was so so nice He was one of the nicest character s I ve ever read I know that probably sounds boring or boringly beta but it was much interesting than that And Tanya was also one of the nicest heroine s ever She was uick witted level headed gracious and I will forever love her for loving NikolaiThis was a truly lovely book At first it started off slow and the middle section of the book seemed to go nowhere But that is part of this books charm The best way I can describe this book is that it s smooth There are no peaks or valleys in this book No raging emotions or passionate scenes of lovemaking Instead it s smooth Tranuil Gentle It s peppered with interesting facts about Russian architecture and the Russian scenary was vividly described The character s were all warm hearted and so sonice There are no evil Russian characters in this book a la JLindsey s Secret Fire instead everyone was welcoming to Tanya Even the Czar was rooting for themBest of all there were no Big Misunderstandings The conflict in this book was maturely acknowledged and dealt with While the circumstances surrounding Nikolai s past misdeeds was uite odd as well as a little eyebrow raising he manned up and confronted it I loved that And I loved this book On a side note I had no idea that these books were such rare finds I found most of Dinah Dean s Russian collection at my library store and I thought why not After shelling out my measly pocket change for them I was later stunned to find that I had fallen ass backwards into a literal treasure trove At first I was not sure why but after finishing it I understood While The Ice King is not a tempestuous passionate read it is proof that romance lives and once found it is to be held on to with everything you have And that makes it very rare

Summary The ice king Free download The ice king 107 Rilled and grateful St Petersburg was the city of her dreams She was determined to pack a lifetime into that one all too short visit And the disturbing Prince Nikolai was there to see that she did He was acting like a jealous man But the moment the thought entered her head Tanya dismissed it as utterly impossible A person had to have feelings in. Following a lovely thread on twitter when people discussed their favourite romances that left them with a very sweet feeling after putting the book down the author Lucy Parker mentioned this story as one of them I was lucky to find a copyI gobbled this up Its very sweet well plotted a little angsty but the heroine is dreamy She s extremely likeable and caring There are large portions of Russian architecture and interiors this was fine by me it fits with my day job which I loved but it might not suit everyone I loved it being set in Russia and now thinking of looking into other works set in this period The hero is angsty He is the title named Ice King so dead to the world he s emotionless cold and uncaring This is said not in a way that he s cruel just doesn t engage at all That when a beautiful princeess comes to wake him from his sleep there are comparisons to sleeping beauty throughout that the kiss awakens him finally Now I just made a comparison to kissing but the actual kissing doesn t happen till late but her caring touching nature is what helps awaken him It is a clean romance It gets a little angsty at the end but it was very sweet with a wonderful conclusion This hero is my catnip I like grumpy heroes and it was nice to have a cold one that wasent horrible as in had plotted evil things in the past and gets a redemption or was horrible verbally to the heroine Often cold heroes are written with meanness and this was a perfect example of not writing that but keeping the character cold Additionally cold heroes get often the enemies to lovers trope and this avoids this completely this was perfect for me as this is one of my least favourite tropes I hate constant conflict on the page This was a lovely read and one that I know I will reread4 stars
