An enchanted tale of intrigue where a duke's daughter is the only survivor of a magical curse.

When Ekata's brother is finally named heir, there will be nothing to keep her at home in Kylma Above with her murderous family. Not her books or science experiments, not her family's icy castle atop a frozen lake, not even the tantalizingly close Kylma Below, a mesmerizing

Excuse Me?!? Who said you could be so gorgeous?!? And have the audacity to have an amazing premise too! You truly have it all, don’t you? How dare you. ... Also please take my money in 2020 ... and be good.

But not this night. Tonight we had a strict no-murder policy."
The excerpt has me so hyped for this book! You can read the first chapter here on the NOVL's cover reveal!

review on my blog

"I didn't want to survive. I wanted to thrive."


The Winter Duke was one of my most anticipated 2020 releases and another I expected to give 5 stars, but I was ultimately disappointed in. Don’t ever have expectations, they’re a lie. Though, I want to preface this review by saying my complaints are 100% personal and I’m aware others love these tropes/plotting methods. So, if you read anything in this review and like what I’m complaining about, take that as something enticing

Exquisite world building; "twisty-turn-y" political intrigue; a thoughtful and steadfast main character; an adorable and kick-ass love interest...

I'm so delighted to get an early opportunity to read Bartlett's latest novel, THE WINTER DUKE. I adored the juxtaposition of the elegant and chilling ice country above and the magical and mysterious water world below. Both were absolutely gorgeous and different from any worlds I'd read about before. The way that the two worlds depended on and were in

The thing that grabbed my attention about this book was first the cover, and second, the fact that it was going to be gay Anastasia, and boy did it meet every expectation. Ekata suddenly inherits her family's dukedom and her elder brother's bride and she just does not know how to handle any of this. Most especially how to be her own person while still being a successful duke, and she definitely doesn't know how to flirt. After a series of mishaps and a tempestuous reign, Ekata finally finds her ...more

(DNF 43%, though with a lot of good things to say; the pacing just wasn't my taste and I'm swamped with things to get through.)

The setting was a fantastic surprise. It's a frozen castle knee-deep in snow, sitting atop a lake full of mermaid-like creatures with their own royal court and politics - I've never seen ANYTHING like that before and it is so beautiful!

This book is also brimming with fun personality from the main character. It's pretty heavily political and filled with lots of talking,
