The Ice Captain’s Daughter, by S.G. Rogers
The daughter of a wealthy ice merchant, Miss Jillian Roring intends to marry for love. En route to her first Season in London, however, a failed kidnapping sends her into the arms of the most jaded bachelor in England. When Logan and Jillian unwittingly violate the rigid rules of propriety in Victorian-era England, he is obliged to make her an offer of marriage. Because she aspires to be more than an obligation, Jillian refuses the match. Logan follows her to London to woo her properly, but his scheming ex-fiancée has other plans.
Can Logan convince Jillian that his love for her is real or will the cruel gossip and sharp tongues of London society tear their budding relationship apart?

Mega gorgeous cover! I saw the cover and thought that a book this pretty must be read. So read it I did.
The Ice Captain’s Daughter is a super sweet and squeaky clean historical romance novella. It is short and easily devoured in a couple of hours. I just loved it. Loved, loved, loved it. It makes me so happy to see a morally chaste heroine (and hero) in a young adult book. The plot is nothing spectacular, but honestly, the story is so adorable that it really doesn’t matter. It’s like reading a retelling of a Jane Austen novel.
I will definitely be reading more of this author’s books.
Bonus: It’s $0.99 on Amazon. You can’t go wrong for that price!
