Format: Hardcover
Ice Angel is Elizabeth Hanbury's second Regency romance and is every bit as seductive as her first. The scene is set lavishly, whether it's a ball or the squalor of London's back streets; the author has a fine eye for period detail without its ever seeming overdone. Isabella is a heroine will identify with: vulnerable and nursing a terrible secret, but feisty, loyal and passionate. Hal is just my sort of hero: dashing and handsome, but underneath the fashionable devil-may-care exterior he's the Regency version of a `new man' - caring and thoughtful, and very good with children and animals! The plot is well-worked, so that each new twist and drama follows at a perfect pace, and there is never a dull moment. The main surprises, although I suspected they were coming in some form managed to do just that - to surprise me. There are two secondary romances worked in, both of which are warm and believable and which the reader will care about in their own right, and the main love scenes between Isabella and Hal are to die for: sweet and erotic and moving all at the same time. A wonderful read!

The icily beautiful Lady Isabella arrives in Town and soon captures the interest of Hal, Earl of Bramwell. Both have had difficulties in their past. Isabella can love Hal (and who wouldn't, I completely fell for him myself) but finds it hard to trust him. Their romance is gradually allowed to blossom with the help and hindrance of a juicy array of well-rounded characters, a believable young boy, a roguish dog and a parrot. In less skilled hands, Isabella could have appeared unsympathetic but Ms Hanbury hints at what horrors her heroine has had to endure. When the full story is revealed, it becomes clear why Isabella is as she is.

I always learn something about the Regency period when I read Elizabeth Hanbury and did so again with Ice Angel. This time it was about the flash houses of London. The writing wears its research lightly however, and is never gratuitous.

Another skilfully crafted and completely satisfying read.

Ice Angel is a gorgeous read!

Once again, Elizabeth Hanbury has found a new angle on the Regency setting. Isabella, the heroine is touchingly vulnerable, and her terrible secret all too plausible. Hal, the hero, manages to be both virile and tender, as he seeks the truth behind her icy demeanour. Although I knew they had to be together, I couldn't stop turning the pages to find out what obstacles would be thrown in their way.

The sub-plot characters are original and endearing too, and it takes considerable skill to keep three love stories going at once, so elegantly intertwined.

As well as Isabella's mysterious secret, there is a pivotal drama that shows the darker side to Regency London, just around the corner and yet a world away from the pleasurable life of the 'haut ton', the hidden 'rookeries', which the novel brings to (rather horrifying) life.

Anyhow, I just loved 'Ice Angel', can't wait to read it again - it is warm and witty, light and just a little dark, and beautifully written.

Rarely does one find a book that has been published in this day and age with that Regency feel which one longs for. I found it in Jude Morgan, and I believe I have found it in Elizabeth Hanbury.

The author has successfully woven a wonderful story around characters who seem so real. One immediately feels sympathetic towards them because of the difficulties they experienced in their past. My weakness is a large family with many brothers, and Hal, the hero, comes from such a family, which endeared him to me. He had all the characteristics one desires in a dashing hero, while Isabella is the vulnerable heroine but with a great strength of character.

It was a pleasant read overall. I was truly engrossed and finished the book in two sittings.

Heroine Isbella Vane has gone through some trying stuff, and comes out of it the other side a little emotionally worse for wear. She goes to London and gets the nickname 'ice angel' because of "her beauty and reserve". She brings with her a cute little boy, Dominic, and his collection of animals.
Enter Hal, the Earl of Bramwell, typical regency chap, except, you can't help but like him A LOT, especially when you learn that a woman he was engaged to 8 years ago ran off with a richer man (it can happen to the best of them right?) Isabella and Hal get closer, bit of an emotional game of cat and mouse, and things become even more complicated when this ex-fiance comes back on the scene and gets out her cat claws. She's really unhappy in her marriage now, which serves her right, really, because she is really horrid!
Finally things get sorted and it's a happy ending for all, and a really sweet subplot with Hals's sister and her guy, Freddie.
Only things that get to me is what Hal says to Isabella when they first meet, funny, I suppose, but not at all beliveable which is a shame, as is the end of the book that gives a chapter on what happens after the wedding day, which is pretty obvious, and I dislike having obvious stuff spelled out for me, and I'm the kind of girl who likes the bedroom door to close and that be it.
Apart from that, it was really enjoyable and you do end up caring for the characters and what happens to them and thats a definate sign of a good read.
