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.
I received a review copy
Rollo has an icy exterior, but the more you get to know him the more you realize he's a very sweet man and he has good reason for that iciness. There are secrets he holds near and dear and due to his status he'd never want to get out. Lucky for him there's someone who not only knows his secret, but understands why he is the way he is.
Dianna witnessed something as a child that she never told a soul and now that she's a debutante she runs into those same familiar eyes and knows there's no way he can be as cold as everyone thinks he is. Where others are afraid of Rollo, she is not. Opposite actually. She is quite taken with him.
"You must call me by my name, not 'my lord.'"
"You wish for me to call you 'Earl of Ice'?" teased Diana
Rollo did not smile but his eyes twinkled with laughter as he replied, "Rollo will be quite adequate."
When things go bad for Dianna, Rollo feels that he could have prevented things before they happened and therefore feels a sense of debt to her. He'll try to make things right and when he seems to only make things worse he'll follow his heart and do what he should have done in the very beginning.
Their relationship crosses the journey of time and evolves into quite the happy ending.
