Signet Books was an imprint of the New American Library (NAL), which was established as an autonomous American publishing house after branching off from its British-based parent company, Penguin Books. Signet had the longest running Regency series, beginning in the late 1970s and ending in February 2006. It generally published three books each month, though this varied over the years. Signet also produced reissues, both of their own previous releases as well as those of other publishers.

This is a good Balogh story but I was not especially impressed with the male "love interest" in the book, Wetherby. I say that because he was not really the hero. Wetherby engages in a brief affair while snowbound with widow Rosamond, Lady Hunter. Neither knows the other is titled so do not realize that they are both headed for the same house party where Wetherby will be engaged to Rosamond's niece. They have, of course, fallen in love but never expected to see each other again. The idea that they might be related by marriage and in each other's company over the years is difficult to say the least. There is nothing Rosamond can do about it, but Wetherby chooses to do nothing. He even suspects his fiancee loves someone else but takes no steps to extract himself from the not-yet-formally-announced engagement. He just goes along to get along and would marry a young woman he does not love, with the love of his life watching, without doing anything to change it. Wetherby is not a man of action. The real hero of this story is Lord Beresford and he is a man of action who is willing to take steps to win the woman he loves.

(3.5 stars) This is a 1991 Balogh Regency romance which is new to me. A lot of her older Signet Regencies (from 1985-1998) which she has been releasing in e-format in the past year or two are new to me since I only started reading Balogh with her more recent SLIGHTLY series and by that time the older Signet paperbacks were hard to come by or very pricey.

I can't quite decide how I feel about this Snow Angel. It starts out a 4- (almost 5) star very romantic Regency for me. Heroine Rosamund Hunter, young widow, is stranded in a snowstorm after an argument with her older brother George causes her to leave their carriage in a huff. She's rescued by hero Justin Halliday, Earl of Wetherby, who is on his way to relax at a friend's hunting box (unfortunately sans his mistress, who, at the last minute, could not accompany him).

Wetherby takes Rosamund to the hunting box with him because there is no other recourse. Once there they fully intend to observe the proprieties but, you know, sometimes things happen. They enjoy each other's snowed-in company, conversing easily and frankly, playing cards and billiards, reading companionably, walking and frolicking in the snow (hence the Snow Angel title of the book) and eventually they give in to their strong sexual attraction. After all, although she had loved her late husband very much, he was 30+ years her senior and she's curious about what sex with a younger man would be like. And, as for him, well, he's a man. I guess enough said. A man without the company of his mistress and in the company of a lovely young widow.

Eventually the weather lets up and they each go their separate ways, not knowing many details about each other, not even full names and titles. All she really knows is that he is soon to become betrothed and that his planned trip with the mistress was to have been his last hurrah. He knows that her marriage had been very happy and that her brother now wants to marry her off again to someone she's not interested in. That's pretty much it as far as personal details.

Once back with her brother, she is, fortunately, able to give a plausible excuse to him about where she spent her "snow-in" that he accepts and life goes on as usual. Except that brother George, Lord March, has a daughter named Annabelle who is soon to be betrothed to a young peer. Rosa travels to George's home for the house party where this happy event is to be announced. And, yes, folks, that young peer is Rosa's snow-time lover. You can imagine the awkwardness of their first and actually all their subsequent meetings at this house party.

Up to this point (about 40%) the book is a 4-5 star one for me but from then on it's bogged down in annoying behavior, indecisive inaction, and honorable intentions. Hero Wetherby feels obligated to offer for Annabelle. Annabelle is a wishy-washy young woman lacking any personality who just goes along with whatever is decided for her. And there's Josh, Lord Beresford, second cousin of Rosamund and friend of Wetherby, who may or may not be attracted to Rosa or maybe to someone else.

Oh, sweet heaven above! How tiring this part became. The hero had not yet declared himself nor had Annabelle shown any indications of favoring him. So would it have been so very dishonorable to just skip the whole proposal/declaration? I guess you had to be a member of the peerage in the 1800s to understand and accept the actions of these characters in the last 60% of the book. I personally wanted Justin to feel so intensely enamored of Rosamund that he would grab her and run off into the sunset with her. Alas and alack, he just accidentally lucks into his HEA. An HEA that Rosa deserved and I certainly hope she will find it with him.

The attraction and budding love at the beginning is very well written, and I also appreciated a scene at the end in which Rosa acknowledges to herself a sexual attraction to Josh, even while being in love with Justin. Most romances ignore the fact that even though you may have found your One True Love, the body can still be attracted to a Not the One. Perhaps I should have rounded my 3.5 stars to 4 because of insights like these but that final 60% tried my patience sorely.

Really! Sometimes you just want to bash the heads of Mary's characters and Snow Angel has a whole host of them. The premise is weak, but at least he was straightforward both in wanting, bedding and being clear that he was going to marry elsewhere. She is a widow with a want too, except as it is with women, the want gets satisfied and then the emotional destruction sets in. Add to that he is going to engage himself tonher niece, a chit who is without personality and a will outside of her parents will! Then everybody gets to stay in the same house and the game is on...except he needs a whack between the eyes and a swift kick to overcome his stupid tonnish ways, the widow pines and waits and the neice wants someone else and hasn't got the guts to say so. Pathetic. I would say if you are Balogh-crazy, get this for your library - if you like her, read it and you will probably pass it on. If you are new to the author, try something else first!
