Anne Stuart continues her reign as the queen of romantic suspense. She writes Alpha heroes better than anyone, and she's not afraid to delve into controversial subject matter. Her characters are not cookie-cutter by any means; they're fully realized people who feel so real, I almost expected them to walk off the page. COLD AS ICE features a wonderful, believable love story between two strong people perfect for each other. I'm looking forward to the next book in this unforgettable series. (A )

Night of the Phantom by Anne Stuart is a 1991 publication.

When a terrible crime comes back to haunt her father, Megan is asked to speak to the man who has threatened to ruin him- to go to his home in his stead. She agrees, despite the reputation of the reclusive Ethan Winslowe. Upon her arrival at Ethan's unusual estate, she soon realizes he plans to hold her captive- refusing to allow her to leave in return for his backing off his threat against her father.

Meg never gets a look at the elusive Ethan, only communicating from his loyal assistant. But as time passes Meg finds herself living in a dual complexity. By day she longs for escape from her gilded cage, but by night she is seduced by a phantom- falling under his spell...

This story is obviously inspired by “The Phantom of the Opera”- a book I’ve have yet to read- but get the gist of, nonetheless.

The story has a tortured hero, is creepy and atmospheric, with ghosts and scary townsfolk who view anyone who is different as evil. The story also has strong fantasy and sensual elements- with a tame erotic feel to it.

This would be a good Halloween pick for romance readers. Keep in mind that the book was originally published back in 1991 and this is a digitized version released in 2016. The romantic elements were popular fantasies during that time and this book actually helped to spawn an entire line of books by Harlequin called ‘Harlequin Shadows’- perhaps a precursor to the super popular paranormal romance/ Urban Fantasy trend to come.

Overall, this is a good solid paranormal/fantasy romance for its time. Anne Stuart is a seasoned author writing across several genres. I’m so happy to see that she took the initiative to digitize her out of print books. Many fans would like to read old favorites or ones they might have missed out on- and can introduce these books to new audiences as well, which is a good thing. But it is also very important to preserve the work- and I hope other authors who have rights to their books will follow Stuart’s lead.


*Note: I don’t know if I have a copy of this book- but I do have a collection of the ‘Shadows’ novels in paperback. They are stored in a box somewhere. I mainly keep them because they are out of print and somewhat of a novelty. I'm glad I decided to collect these! I’ll have to see if I can find more of them in digital format- which is easier for me to read. I’m not sure the quality will match Anne’s work- It would still be fun to check them out, though.

The banter between the protagonists was good but I didn't like either of them. She was a Mary Sue and he was just too damn lecherous to hold any appeal.

He constantly called her 'my child' which is creepy considering their age difference. There wasn't enough redemption for the hero to suddenly turn around and stop all his debauchery.

I appreciated that there were dark elements in this story and that it was heavily character driven. Even the villain had his small moment of vulnerability. I thought the ending conclusion was wrapped too quickly and I would have loved an epilogue.

I'm not sure that I buy it when the heroine just "knows" the hero would not hurt her. I do appreciate her conflict about wanting the hero but fearing the unknown after her years of living in a covenant.
