Editorial Reviews


“Ms. Foley is a compelling storyteller whose vibrant images and scintillating prose capture the imagination.”

From the Inside Flap

Celebrated as an extraordinary new talent in romance, Gaelen Foley astounds readers with her vibrant stories of passion and adventure. Now, hot on the heels of her daring Lord of Fire, she spins the powerful tale of a hero tempted by the one woman he is forbidden to love. . . .

Damien Knight, the earl of Winterley, is proud, aloof, and tormented by memories of war. Though living in seclusion, he is named guardian to a fellow officer's ward. Instead of the young homeless waif he was expecting, however, Miranda FitzHubert is a stunning, passionate beauty who invades his sanctuary and forces him back into society. Struggling to maintain honor and self-control, Damien now faces an even greater threat: desire.

A bold, free spirit, Miranda has witnessed the darkest depths of Damien's soul–and has seen his desperate need for love. But before she can thaw his unyielding heart, she must endure a terrifying nightmare of her own. . . .

I have always been a fan of Gaelen Foley and have read all her books. I eagerly waited for two stories in one year and was not disappointed.
Personally, I liked this story better than, "Lord of Fire", and stayed up all night reading it. The hero and heroine are great together! Both parties were upfront with their feelings for each other, rather than pretending to be indifferent.
Damien is the tortured war hero who is named the ward of Miranda, his friend's niece. Even though he is attracted to her, he feels unowrthy of caring for someone while he is battling his own flashbacks and horrors of war. Miranda sees a person worth fighting for and helps Damien overcome his demons.
In addition to the interaction between the main characters, is a plot to kill the heroine. You also get introduced to a possible love interest for Jacinda (maybe??) as well as references to Lord Jack, the "black sheep," so to speak.
In addition, Foley's previous characters from, "The Duke," and "Lord of Fire" are included. Most of all, I loved the conclusion of the book, which wrapped the story up quite nicely! I certainly hope the future stories of the other Knight Brothers, Jacinda, and friend Lizzie are as satisfying as this one! Can't wait till next year!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
LORD OF ICE is the follow-up to LORD OF FIRE, and features Lucien's acclaimed and admired brother, Damien, who is now the earl of Winterly. Due to a few twists of fate, Damien is saddled with a ward, Miranda Fitzhubert, whom he is naturally immediately attracted to, blah blah blah (I'm sure you can fill in the blanks).
I didn't like this book as much as LORD OF FIRE, mainly because it needed some more editing and the characters weren't very consistent or realistic (not that the characters in her other books are very realistic, but these were even less so).
The book starts off pretty well--interesting premise and all that--but I feel the author made several mistakes in making the story convincing as a romance. First of all, the whole ward/guardian thing puts the characters in a situation where they're bound to fall into more of a father/daughter type of relationship, as opposed to a relationship of equals. Add to this the characters' respective traits of neediness (Miranda) and dominance and protectiveness (Damien), and it's all but unavoidable. This would be fine if the book wasn't a romance, but it's hard to believe that the characters truly love each other (in a psychologically healthy way) when it is. Foley FURTHER exascerbates this problem by having Miranda--completely out of character--submit to Damien's authority, just as if he was, in fact, her father. Blech!
Secondly, Damien and Miranda should not have spent the majority of the book with the Knight family. In previous books, the family members have been largely to totally absent from the events of the story, which I think was a wise decision on Foley's part. In this book, however, it sometimes seems like Miranda spends more time with Knight Clan than with Damien.

I'm surprised that this book has not received the full 5 stars which it richly deserves.
I have read all 3 of Gaelen Foley's Knight Series and liked this one the best. I loved Lord of Fire and thought the character of Lucien was brilliantly portrayed. The storyline too was captivating. However, the charachter of Alice, to me, was a little flat and didn't match the vibrancy of Lucien. Of course the fact was that Lucien needed a "good" woman to save him from himself - but still I found Alice rather dull compared with Miranda in Lord of Ice and to me characters play a larger part in the success of the book than the storyline.
What really captivated me about Lord of Ice was the true to life quality of both Miranda and Damien which makes the story real and very poignant. Damien is a battle-scarred war hero going through serious post-war mental stress. I think Gaelen has successfully combined passion, great strength and abject vulnerability in this character so while you admire him you also feel very sorry for him. You can find many Damiens among most modern war veterans I think. Miranda on the otherhand is exuberant and vibrant with a passion for life and a strength ot face up to it - a perfect foil for Damien. She is one of the most endearing and facinating heriones in any romance novel I ever read.
Finally comparing Damien with Lucien - I fell for Damien completely - and not just because of the picture on the cover!!! While Lucien is quicksilver, Damien is all still smoldering passion. This may not be the popular opinion of those who've read both books - but I always liked the strong silent type anyway!!!
Well done Gaelen! Looking forward to the next Knight story on Jacinda and (could it be ?) Billy Blade!! Such a promising read!!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Lord Damien Knight is a soldier nearly consumed by his demons. A legendary war hero, Damien has killed enough, in war, to fill a river full of blood and the dead haunts his stark nightmares. He has resigned himself to a solitary life because he fears his nightmares and blackouts would endanger anyone close to him. Nothing soothes him but the stupor he can only find at the bottom of a whiskey bottle. It is at this point in his life when he learns that a close friend and fellow soldier, named Jason, was murdered in his home and Damien was named guardian to his niece, Miranda.

Damien almost desperately seizes on this opportunity to keep his attention diverted from his problems. He travels to Miranda's school to break the news to her, thinking that she's nothing more than a child. What he finds instead is a beautiful and vivacious nineteen year old trying to protect the younger students from a schoolmaster who is also a pedophile. Damien becomes her hero. He rescues Miranda after an attempt is made on her life, reports the schoolmaster to the authorities and oversees the transfer of the remaining students to another school. Damien, however, will not succumb to his attraction to Miranda. Because of his problems, he has decided that the best thing for him to do is to marry off Miranda to a suitable gentleman. But Miranda is not making it easy for him. She is convinced there's no reason why they shouldn't be together and is determined to fight him every step of the way.

The seemingly random attempt on Miranda's life turns out to be something else as so-called "accidents" follow her to London. After her third "accident", Damien becomes convinced that someone is out to kill Miranda.
