You may not use a false e-mail address, impersonate any person or entity, or otherwise mislead as to the origin of a message or other content. We reserve the right (but not the obligation) to remove or edit such content, but we do not regularly review posted content.

If you do post content or submit any material to us, and unless we indicate otherwise, you grant us a nonexclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, and fully sublicensable right to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, and display such content throughout the world in any media.

You represent and warrant that you own or otherwise control all of the rights to the content that you post; that the content is accurate; that use of the content you supply does not violate this policy and will not cause injury to any person or entity; and that you will indemnify Audible for all claims resulting from content you supply. We reserve the right (but not the obligation) to monitor and edit or remove any activity or content. Audible takes no responsibility and assumes no liability for any content posted by you or any third party.


Audible respects the intellectual property of others. If you believe that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please follow our Notice and Procedure for Making Claims of Copyright Infringement.


Audible attempts to be as accurate as possible. However, Audible does not warrant that product descriptions or content available through the Audible Service is accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free.


In addition to these Conditions of Use, the terms found below apply to any software (including any updates or upgrades to the software and any related documentation) that we make available to you from time to time for your use in connection with the Audible Service (the "Audible Software").


We may offer content from parties other than Audible and may permit parties other than Audible to provide services or sell products through the Audible Service. We may also provide links through the Audible Service to the websites of affiliated companies and certain other businesses. We are a distributor, not a publisher, of any materials we offer from third parties and are not responsible for examining or evaluating, and we do not warrant the offerings of, any of these businesses or individuals, the content we obtain from them or the content of their websites. Audible does not assume any responsibility or liability for the actions, product, and content of any third parties. You should carefully review their privacy statements and other conditions of use.


We reserve the right to remove or disable access to any Audible Content or any other materials posted to or otherwise displayed through the Audible Service, including any Audible Content that violates or otherwise allegedly infringes on the copyright or other intellectual property, proprietary, or other rights of any person, company or other entity. We will not be liable for the removal of or disabling of access to any Audible Content or materials.


Your right to use the Audible Service will automatically terminate if you violate these Conditions of Use or any other Terms. In case of such termination, we may terminate your access to the Audible Service without notice and you will not receive a full or partial refund of any fees already paid. Our failure to insist upon or enforce your strict compliance with the Conditions of Use or any other Terms will not constitute a waiver of any of our rights.


Our business may change over time and we reserve the right to modify the Audible Service. We also reserve the right to suspend or discontinue the Audible Service or your use of the Audible Service, in whole or in part, at any time with or without notice and without liability to you. In the event that we exercise such right, you may be entitled to a full or partial refund, in our sole discretion, if you are a member of an Audible Plan (as defined in the Audible Plan Terms) or with respect to any purchase you've made.






Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of the Audible Service will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this agreement.

There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of these Conditions of Use as a court would.

To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to our registered agent: Corporation Service Company, 300 Deschutes Way SW, Suite 304, Tumwater, WA 98051. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules, including the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. The AAA's rules are available at or by calling 1-800-778-7879. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules. We will reimburse those fees for claims totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. Likewise, Audible will not seek attorneys' fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location.

We each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration we each waive any right to a jury trial. We also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.


By using the Audible Service, you agree that the Federal Arbitration Act, applicable federal law, and the laws of the State of Washington, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern these Conditions of Use and any dispute of any sort that might arise between you and Audible.


Please review our Terms. We reserve the right to make changes to the Audible Service, these Conditions of Use and any Terms at any time. Your continued use of the Audible Service following any changes will indicate your acceptance of such changes. If you do not agree to a change, you must immediately stop using the Audible Service. If any Terms or these Conditions of Use are deemed invalid, void, or for any reason unenforceable, that condition or term shall be deemed severable and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining condition or term.

Audible Purchase Terms and Conditions

Any user may purchase Audible Content on an "A La Carte" basis. Audible members also may purchase content using membership credits in accordance with the terms set forth in the Audible Plan Terms. By making a purchase through the Audible Service you agree to be bound by these Audible Purchase Terms and Conditions.

Purchases of Audible Content

  1. Audible Content License. When you purchase Audible Content, Audible grants you a limited, revocable, non-exclusive, non-transferable license to download or stream such Audible Content to your computer and/or other device(s) solely for your personal, non-commercial use. You agree to not otherwise copy, reproduce, distribute or use the Audible Content other than as expressly set forth herein. You will not sell, transfer, lease, modify, distribute or publicly perform the Audible Content in any manner and you will not exploit it commercially. You agree to not modify, reverse engineer, decompile or disassemble the Audible Content, or otherwise tamper with the Audible Content or create any derivative works therefrom.
  2. Pricing. With respect to all A La Carte purchases, except where noted otherwise, any list price displayed represents the full retail price listed on the Audible Content itself, as determined by Audible, or as suggested by the manufacturer or supplier, or estimated in accordance with standard industry practice; or the estimated retail value for a comparably featured item offered elsewhere. Prices are subject to change at any time in Audible's sole discretion. Audible cannot confirm the price of an item until you order. Despite our best efforts, a small number of the items in our catalog may be mispriced. If an item's correct price is higher than our stated price, we may at our discretion cancel your order.
  3. Delivery of Audible Content. All Audible Content you purchased will be delivered to your Audible Account.
  4. Risk of Loss. Once we have made Audible Content available to you, you will bear the risk of loss for completing any download of Audible Content after purchase and for any loss of Audible Content you have downloaded, including any loss due to a file corruption or a device or hard drive crash. Purchased Audible Content will generally continue to be available in your Audible Account but may become unavailable due to possible content provider licensing restrictions or other reasons, and Audible will not be liable to you if Audible Content becomes unavailable for further download. You will not receive a full or partial refund of any fees already paid in such situations. Accordingly, we encourage you to download Audible Content promptly after purchase and to make a back-up copy. If you are unable to complete a download after having reviewed our online help resources, please contact Audible customer service.
  5. Payments.You must have a valid payment instrument, such as a credit card or other permitted payment method, on file in your Audible Account in order to use the Audible Service. If you are using your Amazon account to access the Audible Service, your default payment instrument will be the default payment instrument you use for purchases from If you want to designate a different payment instrument, you must change your authorized payment instrument information online at the "My Account" section of the Audible Service.
  6. Subscriptions. Any user may purchase subscriptions to recurring content such as newspapers and magazines on a monthly basis or other recurring basis depending on the recurrence of the content ("Subscriptions"). Only credit cards are eligible for payment of Subscriptions. Do not sign up for a Subscription with a debit card. Also known as a "check" or "ATM" card, a debit card typically has the word “debit” printed on the face of the card. If you purchase a Subscription, you will be charged the full price of the Subscription at the beginning of the Subscription term. If your default payment instrument is declined for any reason, Audible may charge any credit card on file with your Amazon account. Subscriptions may be purchased on an A La Carte basis or by members with credits. With respect to any Subscriptions purchased on an A La Carte basis, if you cancel your Subscription before the initial term has expired, you may be entitled to a refund depending upon whether there is a shorter Subscription available for the relevant Audible Content. You will be obligated to pay based upon the Subscription term length closest to the number of months your Subscription was active. For example, if you signed up for a 12 month Subscription and wish to cancel after 5 months, then: (A) if a 6 month Subscription term is available, you would be charged for a 6 month Subscription and refunded the difference between the 12 month and 6 month Subscriptions, or (B) if only a 12 month term is available, you would be charged for the 12 month Subscription.


Audible sometimes allows customers to pre-order items with a future release date. If you pre-order an item using membership credits, gift cards or promotional codes, they will be consumed upon submission of the pre-order. If you pre-order an item using a credit card, it will not be charged until the item is released and available for you to download. If for whatever reason the item is not released, the order will be cancelled, the membership credits or the consumed value of gift cards and promotional codes will be returned to your account and the credit card will not be charged, as applicable.

Pre-order Price Guarantee

Audible's price for not-yet-released items sometimes changes between the time the item is listed for sale and the time it is released and available for download. Whenever you pre-order an item, the price we will charge when we make it available to you for download will be the lowest of (a) the price at the time you placed the order and (b) the price at the time and date the item is released.

Terms and Conditions:

  1. The Pre-order Price Guarantee applies to not-yet-released items available for pre-order. All pre-orders appearing on your "My Pre-orders" page will benefit from the Pre-order Price Guarantee.
  2. The Pre-order Price Guarantee does not apply to other items that have already been released and are available for purchase and download.
  3. If the price of an item you have pre-ordered is higher on the release date, Audible will fulfill the order as originally placed so you will be charged the lower order-date price.
  4. If the price of an item you have pre-ordered is lower on the release date, Audible will fulfill the order as originally placed and immediately thereafter automatically refund your credit card for the difference between the price you were charged and the lower release-date price.

Members who sign up to a committed membership plan and receive the gift benefit will not be able to cancel the plan prior to the expiration of the initial term of the plan.
  3. Trial Offers. Audible may, in its sole discretion, make available free or paid trial offers for a monthly or annual Gold or Platinum Membership Plan, the terms of which will be more fully explained on the Audible Service (a "Trial Offer").

Any Credits issued in connection with a Trial Offer or Audible Content purchased with such Credits are issued and provided subject to such verification and may be revoked by Audible in the event that such verification fails. Upon expiration of the trial, you will automatically be joined into the related Gold or Platinum Membership Plan and Audible will charge your default payment instrument the relevant monthly fee or annual fee, as applicable. If your default payment method is declined for any reason, Audible may charge any credit card on file with your Amazon account. YOU MUST CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION PRIOR TO THE END OF THE TRIAL OFFER TO AVOID CHARGES. Trial Offers are limited to one per household.

Audible Plans may be upgraded or downgraded as follows:
    1. Gold and Platinum Membership Plans.
      1. Upgrades. Gold Members can upgrade to a Platinum Membership Plan. Any available Credits, including any AudibleListener Rollover Credits, that a Gold Member has accumulated will be transferred to the new upgraded plan in accordance with the rules for the new membership plan. Upon any upgrade, Audible will charge your default payment instrument the pro-rated additional fee for the Platinum Membership Plan. If your default payment instrument is declined for any reason, Audible may charge any credit card on file with your Amazon account. Platinum Members cannot upgrade to another Audible Plan.
      2. Downgrades. Gold and Platinum Members can downgrade to the AudibleListener Light Plan and Platinum Members can downgrade to a Gold Membership Plan or AudibleListener Light Plan.

If you joined a Committed Membership Plan, you may only upgrade or downgrade to another Audible Plan once the term for your current Committed Membership Plan expires.

    3. AudibleListener Light Plan. Gold and Platinum Members who have downgraded to the AudibleListener Light Plan can upgrade again to either a Gold Membership Plan or a Platinum Membership Plan at any time.

AudibleListener Light Plan Members cannot downgrade to another Audible Plan.
  7. Cancellation of Audible Plans. Except for members belonging to committed membership plans, you may cancel your Audible Plan online or by contacting Audible customer service. Upon cancellation of any membership, all available Credits, other than Gift Credits or Complimentary Credits, will expire, and all complimentary Subscriptions will expire. Members will not receive a full or partial refund of any monthly or annual fee already paid.
  8. Audible's 'Great Listen Guarantee' is an exclusive benefit available to AudibleListener plan members in good standing.

Editorial Reviews

Celebrated as an extraordinary new talent in romance, Gaelen Foley astounds readers and listeners 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Story! January 29, 2002
By susu_22
Format:Mass Market Paperback
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!

3.0 out of 5 stars Definitely Not One of Her Better Books February 7, 2002
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful April 2, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
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!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow - You just had to love Damien!! September 30, 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
For some reason I just did not expect to love Damien as much as I did Lucein but boy was I wrong!! Leaving off with Damien in such a dismal state in Lord of Fire and picking up in somewhat the same way in Lord of Ice - Damien is just plagued with a war torn sole. He planned to shut himself off at his newly claimed estate and alone work out his battlescars. When he learns that he is now a ward of his war friends niece he goes to take care of his new charge - who of course he thinks will be some very young girl - not the beautiful Miranda!! Their meeting is powerful - not knowing that the girl he propositioned the night before was actually Miranda - then he fought for her honor in a rage of vengence when she is attacked on her way back home. Damien and Miranda have formed very strong impressions of each other when they are thrown together as protector and ward the next day at the school. Slowly but surely after the shock wears off of who they are to one another - and after Damien truly proves himself as a good and gentle man by saving the girls at the school from the cruelty of the head master - Miranda realizes that Damien needs this man and he needs her! Of course Damien thinks he will be taking her to his family in London and finding her a husband. He thinks he needs no one and is such a miserable sole that he does not deserve anyone as lovely as Miranda. Lucein encourages Miranda to fight for Damien and save him because he says only love can save Damien. The scene when she goes to him during the New Years Eve fireworks which are torturing him like cannons in a battle is absolutely beautiful. . . truly a romantic beautifully written scene. Read more ›
