Sweet little old-fashioned style romance, but with plenty of action and derring-do in the plot. I really liked the hero, and his horse, who plays a critical role, and his posse of ex-military men friends. Contrary to what another review says, he has NOT lost his arm, but has lost the use of it due to a war injury. This could have presented a problem in his romancing of the heroine, except she um, takes the bull by the horns, to use a metaphor. I really liked that part. Will he regain movement in his arm? Read the book and find out!
I stumbled upon this book not realizing it was part of a series, now I have to go back and read the first one, "The Night The Stars Fell".

Lady Alissa Alana Collington learns that for her to inherit the family fortune she must marry before her twenty-fifth birthday or her odious uncle gains everything. That would not be a difficult accomplishment except Alissa has one week to that particular birthday and has no suitors. In fact, several of the men who have courted her have been murdered; leaving Alissa to conclude her uncle killed them.

Desperate she flees to London in the hopes that the Bow Street Runners will find evidence of the dastardly deeds of her uncle. However, besides the blizzard impeding Alissa's journey, her uncle pursues her too. Veteran Lord Guy Michael Mathers rescues Alissa and agrees to marry her though he feels not worthy due to the loss of an arm during the recent war. Still love enters the relationship, but there remains her villainous relative still trying to kill her and now her beloved.

RIDE THE WINTER WIND is an exciting Regency romantic suspense that requires reader acceptance of the basic axioms that propel the tale forward. The audience will enjoy the action-paced, very descriptive plot but must ignore that Alissa is unaware of how malevolent her uncle is until it is almost too late. Once clearing that hurdle, sub-genre fans will enjoy Alissa's desperate gamble and find much empathy towards the hero in spite of instant love. Christina Kingston provides sub-genre fans with an exhilarating thriller that never slows as Alissa begins her last ditch quest.
