Welcome to Sugarbeat’s Books – The Home of the Romance Novel!
Damien Knight 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 ever 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…
Why do you need to read this book? I love how Miranda brought Damien out of his self-imposed exile and back into the world of the living.
Lord of Ice is available from Amazon
