In Best selling author Suzanne G. Rogers’ newest release, The Ice Captain’s Daughter, an historical romance, when eighteen year old Miss Jillian Roring is accosted on her way to her first “Season” in London, MacKenzie Logan comes to her aid. Learning that she is far from home, he offers the beleaguered young lady one of his guest rooms. But when Jillian’s aunt and Uncle learn she’s spent the night alone with the reputed rogue Logan, they insist the couple marry to cover up any resulting scandal. Jillian herself is anything but blemish-free, being the daughter of the famed Ice Captain. How could Logan accept her when all London looks down on her for that? How could her family accept the scandalous Logan, when rumors swirl about the break-up of his last love affair?
But already taken with her charms, Logan agrees to the betrothal. Jillian, on the other hand, isn’t so sure this is the best of decisions, declines and goes home with her aunt and uncle. Besides, the more she learns of Logan, the more unsure Jillian becomes, Rumor is he left his ex-girlfriend to chase women, and she’s heard he and his friends have made bets on who will capture her heart first!
Well, you know how rumor is…Maybe one of the gossipers still has it out for ole Logan. For his part, Logan won’t be discouraged so easily, until Jillian can learn the truth and decide for herself. As for her attackers…where did they get off to? And what happened to Jillian’s maid, who the thief sent home to fetch her uncle and aunt? The one they say never arrived? You’ll have to read to find out.
You know, I love Ms. Rogers‘ stuff. This is no different. Her Regency Romance debut, The Ice Captain’s Daughter is a delightful Young Adult novella, well-researched and with some surprising elements. Coupled with Rogers’ signature hint of humor, I think her new title lends something to the sometimes stuffy genre of Regency Romance, that may hook a few younger readers to the genre. If you enjoy sweet, lighthearted romance, Suzanne G. Rogers’ The Ice Captain’s Daughter you’ll find it, as I did, for sale currently at Amazon for Kindle, for $.99.
I hear tell Ms. Rogers’ is about to release a follow-up to this delightful tale, so now would be the time to check it out.
