The Ice Prince has to be my least favorite Orsini book, it just fell flat for me. Anna is an Orsini and like her brothers hates what her father's does and thinks her mother is second to her father. So she is a lawyer, with all modern outlook, that women can be like men, have sex and kick men out in the morning, she goes to meet Draco on behest of her father(some property claim), but they don't who each other is at the beginning, they fight and make-out on a plane.

Then meet as adversaries, fight...more

The Ice Prince continues the story of the Orsini Dynasty and it’s the 1st in the Orsini Brides…yes, we get the Orsini’s sisters stories….yippee!!!!

Cesare Orsini is up to his shenanigans again…what a crafty old fox. This time, using emotional blackmail once again….he’s asked his lawyer daughter, Anna to fly to Italy to claim back land in Sicily that once belonged to her mother and had been unlawfully claimed by Prince Draco Valenti.
Naturally there’s more to his request and I wondered what Anna,...more
Arguably the best harlequin novella out of the three I've read this month.

Good, solid, steaming hot porn that is more than 40 pages long. Nipples everywhere and the protagonist is not a virgin. Hellz yeah. I'm a pleased reader.

The story was somewhat interesting, even if I only half suspected that the father is trying to play the matchmaker (I really think there should be some clarification for the ones who haven't read the previous novellas).
It was sexist in a lot of ways and the effort to port...more

Siguiendo la linea de los anteriores libros.Cesare le pide a su hija abogada que lo ayude a recuperar unas tierras que segun el son de su esposa y segun el principe son de el y de su familia.

Draco y Anna se encuentran en un aereopuerto,cosa bastante original ya que la historia de la serie se estaba tornando mas repetitiva.Aunque el caracter temperamental de ambos chocan desde el principio se dejan llevar por la atraccion sin si quiera saber el nombre.

Luego descubren que por poco se dejan arrastr...more

the Orisini Brides're the 5th & 6th parts of the Orisini Brothers series .. & Again i really really enjoyed reading it .. but i loved Izzy more than Ana & i don't Know why .. it's just what I felt :) anyway Great work Sandra .. keep it up ... i really love your Novels :)
At one point near the beginning, I did consider flouncing this book, but I carried on in the end and just skim-read some parts. Unfortunately, I'm just not the type of reader who finds mob family stories that interesting and that's kind of what this is. Also, I wasn't such a fan of Anna in the first place. She was one of those 'strong and independent' characters who is portrayed that way by screeching a lot, slapping people, and getting angry and rude all the time. It just wasn't that appealing...more
Hated Anna like really really hated her , she didn't come off as a strong feisty independent woman Nope Nope And Nope she was rude , arrogant and did I mention Rude !! the funniest part was how she accused Draco of acting superior while it was her doing that all the time .. and if there's one thing I can't tolerate it's when people don't know how to say thank you when someone does something nice for them GAH she was horrible .. Draco was a typical Sandra Marton hero though he was hateful somet...more

Anna Orsini must buckle under to try and save her mother's legacy. Having her distasteful father ask her to be his legal representative to Prince Draco Valenti and push thru the family's legal claim to property the Prince is trying to build on is galling, but she will for her mother's sake.

Draco might be a prince, but he has struggled to restore the family's name and coffers thru years of hard work. Having the Orsini claim on his own legacy is bothersome, but not nearly as bothersome as the fies...more
Un libro ligero... de esos que lees cuando necesitas relajarte y volver a sentir el amor que puede darte un libro!!
Si bien es corto, te tiene sonriendo todo el tiempo, sintiendo la inexplicable pasión de los personajes y sus temores...
Lo feo es que los últimos dos capítulos pasan como el viento.... podría haber trabajado mas en ellos....
Especial para una tarde/noche de melancolía donde necesitas de esa historia de amor que te haga volverte a enamorar...asi sea de algo tan corto y efímero como es...more
The worst in the series so far and to start with I thought this series wasn't as good as her other family series.

I didn't like both the hero and the heroine and some sentences in the story really got on my nerves.

I have to say that the last few books I read by Sandra Marton weren't as good as previous books by her and I hope she'll do better soon or she won't be an auto buy for me anymore!

I liked the idea of this: macho sexist guy changes his point of view but he doesn't really. He just falls in love with a woman. It doesn't make him less sexist. He's just a sexist guy in love with some woman.

The way the story played out with him groveling to her brothers made me a irritated. He should be groveling to her, not to her brothers. Meh.

Sandra Marton's The Ice Prince is a part of The Orsinis series. I love all books in this series. I truly enjoyed Draco's and Anna's love-hate relationship and also witnessing how 2 tough & stubborn people get scared at the thought of them having fallen quickly in love. The ice prince, Draco, has a very funny sense of humor, too.
This is a book to read in a weekend. It was cool but not that "THING", I think this is a kind of book written to make women feel special, to make them think that passion and sex is everything but it's not. There are more important things than that. I appreciate this book... I like these kind of book but it's not my favorite reading.
Well, I really loved the story. Anna and Draco had a really passion relationship, but I think that some details could be lost and the story would be even better. Thanks for the lovely story Sandra ! I am looking for your other books to read.
the title waspromising but the story itself just didn't live up to that title's promise. why do all the main characters have to be titled and/or rich/and/or gorgeous and/or a royal PITA!
Rubbish. It was rushed and didnt feel like it even had a conculsion. Anna was annoying as hell and seemed like she had split personality disorder to go with her dullness.
Terrible. The story seems to jump around with heavy necking and sex without much rhyme or reason. There was a storyline hidden somewhere but it got lost in all the sleaze.
both the characters' were strong and amazing. and i liked the way H finally got to meet her brothers... it was my fav scene. :D

Some really good bits to this book, but many disappointing bits. The ending was awful and very rushed.
Anna was annoying as hell! I wanted to slap her silly! I can't believe Sandra Marton wrote this book!
It was okay...bug not one of her best. I much preferred the other sister's story in "The Real Rio D'Aquila"

I live in a small town in Connecticut with my husband. I was 15, he was 18 when we met! Our house is bright and sun-filled, with deep woods behind us that are home to native wildlife from deer to fishers to coyotes. Wild turkeys plod through our yard; hawks fly overhead.

I've been a writer, one way or another, all my life. Before I could read, I made up poems and my mom wrote them down for me. In e...more
