Publisher's Summary

Laurence Fitzroy is trapped in a golden cage. The only son of a wealthy London baronet, he's struggling to escape his father's suffocating world. But Laurie is losing his fight. At 19 years of age, bright and imaginative, he's no match for the brutal Sir William. Laurie wants to be an actor - bad enough as far as Sir William is concerned, but, worse than that, he's gay.

One bitter winter night, he meets a young homeless man huddled in blankets outside the opera house. The two form a bond straight away, and Laurie takes him home, wanting only to offer him food and a warm bed. But Sasha is a passionate Romani immigrant, and his beauty and sweet nature soon overwhelm Laurie's chaste intentions, leaving him hopelessly in love.

Laurie and Sasha reach out desperately to one another from their different worlds, and against all odds begin an affair, hidden in the attics of Laurie's sumptuous home and on the bleak moorland of a Romani encampment. For Laurie, it's a delicious sexual awakening, and Sasha returns his affections, opening up to him a whole new world of freedom.

But Sasha has secrets, and a murky, violent past. When he vanishes, he leaves Laurie bereft and alone in a city he hardly recognizes any more. Now Laurie has to stand on his own two feet and find the strength to rescue his lover - and himself.

    "Sublime performance. Gritty, emotional story"
    Would you consider the audio edition of A Midwinter Prince to be better than the print version?

    A well chosen performance artist will enhance a wonderful book every time. That is certainly the case here. Listening to it, I definitely felt as though the characters were actual people putting on a play in my ears. The narrator, Rusty Coles, did a superb and deft job of voicing each character distinctly and putting the perfect emotional inflection in all scenes.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The beautiful, flowing prose with which Harper Fox weaves her stories. The events in this story are unexpected, difficult to predict - yet surprising in the best way. The two characters of Laurie and Sasha are contradictions, yet are very much the same at heart. They make for convincing couple that I was rooting for all the way. I felt each moment of heartbreak, each triumph, each hug.


    Which character – as performed by Rusty Coles – was your favorite?

    Laurie. It's his story and he's in every scene. Coles voiced him just as I would have hoped.


    If you could take any character from A Midwinter Prince out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    It would be the detective from Interpol. He was a real stand up guy to Laurie and Sasha and imagine the stories he could tell. Confident and compassionate = sexy!

    Story
    "If you survive through the beginning,."

    The beginning of this book just dragged on horribly. I would have returned it, however I had a long drive and decided to let it drone on as background noise. About halfway through it actually began to become very engaging. I think part of the problem might have been the narration of Sasha, one of the main characters. He was supposed to have a Romani accent, but it came off more as a sullen lovesick vampire. The annoying accent never went away, but the story line became strong enough to cover it up. The only other issue was the wording used when Sasha spoke to Laurie. With a slight adjustment in accent, he would have come off more as a Parisienne whore, then as a rough Gypsy. All in all, still enjoyable.

    "Loved it the second time around!"
    Would you listen to A Midwinter Prince again? Why?

    I read this novel when it was first released and posted this review on GR

    Another memorable read by Harper Fox. Laurie is an extremely engaging character as is the dark and mysterious, Sasha. This story is part fairy tale, part mystery, with a healthy dose of Harper Fox angst. I really enjoyed it and would recommend it without hesitation.

    The audio version performed by the amazing Rusty Coles brings these characters to life. Once again, I was caught up in this beautiful tale. Highly Recommended.

    "New narrator to me...and he does a great job!!"

    Very accomplished narration, and a pleasure to listen to. Accents [of which there were several in this story] were no problem at all to Rusty, and this may have been one of Harper Fox's earliest stories, but the lyrical prose and the Young Adult storyline were terrific as always.

    The Fitzroy family were fairly dysfunctional, but Laurie was an absolute star and undeserving of his drunken, uncaring brute of a father. Sascha made the perfect foil for Laurie and had his own family horrors unfortunately. The Lost Prince is up next.
