But now the fells were clothed in snow. It had apparently been snowing for days, and even the lakes themselves had a film of white coating their surfaces

But now the fells were clothed in snow. It had apparently been snowing for days, and even the lakes themselves had a film of white coating their surfaces. When she had stopped at the last village for directions to Bowness she had found herself well off her original route which wasn’t altogether surprising when half the signposts had been covered with snow, too, and she had been too warm and snug in the car to bother to get out and wipe it away.

Talk about Leopard in the Snow (Large type series)

From the back cover: Helen felt a sense of hopelessness... Rebelling against her father's attempts to run her life, Helen James fled London. But she found herself in even deper trouble when a blizzard forced her to accept the aid of Dominic Lyall, a man who would do anything to protect his privacy. Virtually held prisoner in his isolated country house, Helen struggled to escape... but of what value was freedom if her heart was captive to a man who didn't want her love?

Review: I bought this old book from Amazon because I was originally searching for Movies adapted from Harlequin romance novels and this was one of them. I figured let me read the book first and if I like it then I'll buy the movie version.

Well, I liked the book and it was an easy read. At first I wasn't sure if the attraction between Helen and Dominic was too fast or came out of nowhere but thinking about it now, I guess if he was that handsome and they are alone in the house well, ya know! All in all I enjoyed the book. I think I will actually purchase that movie version!
loved this book.. read it many years ago and thoroughly enjoyed finding it and reading it again.. bought the movie from the UK and loved watching that too... Anne Mather is a great writer... This book is quality and better than the trashy read one gets these days... the writers give their characters more soul in past years than they do now..
HP books from the early days seem to have a decidedly politically incorrect bent - or maybe its just that today's society has become more tolerant.

The hero, Lyall was involved in a car accident that left him with a painful limp. He's become a recluse and when the heroine, Helen, figures out that he was that famous race driver from yesteryears, is adamant about her staying with him until he can arrange to leave the country - because he cannot trust her not to reveal his whereabouts to the outside world once she is released. Helen thus becomes a prisoner in his house.

A few things of note: Helen distinctly states to herself at one point that she couldn't possibly be attracted to the hero because he is a cripple~ not the kind of language or sentiment you would see in an HP book from the new millenium. Of course having a less than perfect hero in an HP book is a pretty shocking experience in and of itself. BTW, regarding what another reviewer has said, the hero in this book is never described as handsome: Helen actually says to herself that he is not a handsome man, upon wondering why she is attracted to him at all.

Another thing I find a little difficult to digest with these early AM HP books: the hero is 38 years old and the heroine is 22. Need I say more?

The book though never as sexual as the more recent HP, does have a undercurrent of sexual tension amongst the main characters. It is never fully convincing, however, that the hero has fallen in love with the heroine here. He's always so derisive and cold towards her and barely has any interaction with her to actually fall in love. His manservant would have a better excuse of loving the heroine~!
i love this book. it's what i love in a romance,the challenging relationship between the young and independant helen james and the hostile dominic lyall. set in the cold wintry snow areas of england, it's a perfect backdrop setting for an unlikely romance between two people too stubborn and set in their ways to show each other how they really feel. i read this book every time i need to lay back,relax and dream of being the beautiful helen james.i thoroughly enjoyed this classic romance,making it one of my favourite books of all time.hats off to anne mather for sharing her wonderful imagination and creating a beautiful story for me to enjoy for eons to come. also highly recommended are samara by patricia potter and anne rice's the mummy and cry to heaven.
