Book Review-Melting the Ice: (A Series of Elements Book 2)-Elizabeth Johns

Friday, September 21, 2018



So you do not get confused like I did--this novel starts out almost identically to Book 1 in this series--but then it changes and fast! What is one to do when you can't find a suitable match after 5 seasons--and your father simply refuses to make the match for you? Meanwhile--out of the three identical triplets Beaujolais is the one who really wants to be a Duchess--but is beginning to wonder--there are only 2 Dukes in the realm eligible--When she is approached by Benedict Stanton's solicitor with an offer of marriage--she is furious (I would have been too!!). She has no idea who this is and to not have come in person--she turns the offer down!

Little did she know that the marriage proposal came from a Duke! It would take scheming and back handed methods by some of her relatives to get these two perfectly matched people together!!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

Along with her triplet sisters, Lady Beaujolais Winslow is a celebrated beauty, but after five seasons she has yet to find a match she finds tolerable. Since her father refuses to arrange a marriage, it is rumoured in London society that she is holding out for a duke.

Benedict Stanton, Duke of Yardley, vowed never to marry again when his first marriage ended in a scandalous divorce. Having retreated to the country for nearly a decade, he is thought to be a cold-hearted recluse. Now faced with leaving his dukedom to the Crown for lack of an heir, he sets out to find a bride in a manner more suited to generations past—through his solicitor.

When Lady Beaujolais receives one of the Duke’s impersonal proposals, she rejects it out of hand and in considerable anger. Little does she know she is soon to be forced into his company every day…

About the Author: (from Amazon)


National bestselling author Elizabeth Johns was first an avid reader, though she was a reluctant convert. It was Jane Austen's clever wit and unique turn of phrase that hooked Johns when she was "forced" to read Pride and Prejudice for a school assignment. She began writing when she ran out of her favorite author's books and decided to try her hand at crafting a Regency romance novel. Her journey into publishing began with the release of Surrender the Past, book one of the Loring-Abbott Series. Johns makes no pretensions to Austen's wit but hopes readers will perhaps laugh and find some enjoyment in her writing.

Johns attributes much of her inspiration to her mother, a retired English teacher. During their last summer together, Johns would sit on the porch swing and read her stories to her mother, who encouraged her to continue writing. Busy with multiple careers, including a professional job in the medical field, author and mother of small children, Johns squeezes in time for reading whenever possible.

Pressure cookers have been around for a very long time--I definitely remember my Grandmother using one. I distinctly remember the steam escaping and being told to STAY AWAY!! Well those times have changed and Pressure Cookers aren't at all what they used to be. I would still be careful--although I am pretty sure there are safety features these days. But better safe then sorry! Plus this Pressure Cooker does a whole lot more--be sure to click into and read the review below for all the marvelous features it incorporates. Foods cook faster in a pressure cooker--of that I can bear witness. My Grandmother's Brisket--her boiled chicken--to die for!! So get down there and enter--you really want and probably need this Pressure Cooker!
