Can they overcome the betrayals of the past for a second chance at love?
On the Continent they call him the Ice Prince, icy of manner, icy of heart. Now, after thirteen years of exile, Con returns home to England and to Harrowcot Hall, a place haunted by memories of a long-lost friendship and past betrayals, a place where all of his dreams shattered and died.
But the past is over and done with, and can no longer touch him -- or so Con thinks. He certainly does not expect to come face to face with Bryn Ellison again, the man whom he once loved beyond everything and who repudiated their bond in the cruelest way imaginable.
As snow and frost close in on Harrowcot Hall, Con's icy demeanour starts to melt while he grapples with old hurts and newly awakened passions. Will he give in to the lure of the past against his better judgement?
This book contains a very grumpy earl, a dashing stablemaster, some ravishment in various places, several garden follies, a lot of snow, and a horse called Lancelot.

The renting of clothes, the gnashing of teeth, angst and more angst described most of the Earl of Stanbury “Con” & Stablemaster Bryn tale. I have mixed feelings about the story; the angst was continuous, about 2/3 of the story was in Con’s head. On the other hand, there was a romantic element mostly involving Bryn. So if you're into pages of “ I’m terrible, no he’s terrible, no I’m really terrible”, then this read is for you. Oh! There is a romance underneath the angst.
