    1. So, what can I say about this little beauty. It might not be exactly 4 stars but I found it amusing enough. At one point this book read like it would turn into one of those m/m/f stories, but you know we don't get those in HQNs. The H's sexuality was actually addressed though, funny enough. This is one of those stories where you ask yourself what in the H.Euble-toothpicks does this heroine find attractive about the hero in order to decide this is the love of her life. He was handsome and had tha [...]

    2. I thought it'd be crazy, unusual, and exciting when it started out with a girl getting hunted by a cheetah, but it turned out strangely boring. It was unusual enough, with a crippled Hero and all, but somehow the interest just wasn't there. She just kept pushing herself at him and he kept turning her down. She was too immature, also she literally was effusively declaring, "I love you, I love you," one moment and then barely a paragraph later, "I despise you, I can't believe I let you touch me," [...]

    3. Well it had a lot of potential and given that this book had a lot of publicity back in its day I expected more from it. My mother had recommended it to me and I am not sorry that I read it just not that good. The writing style was childish and very introspective. I hate when the girl is too in her own head! This was just cute in places and he was such a sexist dinosaur that it made me want to hit something!!! Agh how did we every get here from that!?

    4. Back in the 70s my Mom started subscribing to Harlequin Romances and I would read some of them. Anne Mather's books were favorites and this one must have stood out as I kept a copy- not of the 1974 original but of the '78 movie tie-in reprint .ough the original is probably boxed up somewhere (Mom ultimately had thousands of romance paperbacks). I think I liked this one because of its overtones of Beauty and the Beast and maybe a touch of The Sheik. At that time in my life it felt wildly romantic [...]

    5. It had so much potential !!I liked the plot liked it a lot unfortunately it never delivered any of the emotion and depth it could have had !! Dominic was a horrible hero but that was the whole point he's lonely he's angry he's bitter he could have brought so much emotions to the book , Helen was nice she had guts and knew how to use them but she also lacked depth. The relationship between Dominic and Helen mainly revolved around Dominic being cruel and cold while Helen tries to take a bit [...]

    6. awesome one! i loved it! very light conventional romance but it works!it's a top recipe. so basically, dominic is a living recluse after a dreadful accident while he was a famous car racer. lil helen has run away from home as her papa wanted her 2 marry a man she did not love. she becomes trapped in snow, in a blizzard n dats where she come across the leopard, sheba n flew in hysterics. dats how dominic found her n decided 2 sequestrate her in his house less she shud reveal him 2 the media/2 oth [...]

    7. I think there was a leopard in this book so that the author could title this book Leopard in the Snow. This book was actually kinda lame and the only mildly interesting part was Bolt, the manservant who looked like Mr. Clean. The heroine was boring, the hero wasn't much better.

    8. تًرجمت بالعربي ( صحراء الثلج ) أول مجموعة روايات قرأتها لا تنسى

    9. This was one of the first romance novels I ever read. It helped get me hooked on the entire genre. Great read!!

    10. this was my favourite author way back then :) read em and soaked them up and even went to see this in the movies.

    11. I think I gave high reviews years ago lol but anyhow review from 2006: I bought this old book from 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 han [...]

    12. Yes I know this is a Mills and Boons, but I don't really care. I've always loved Anne Mather, because she always somehow managed to just lift her writing out of the prosaic romance conventions and be a lyrical and interesting writer. You won't find any truly groundbreaking story lines in this novel, but what you will find is a very enjoyable and interesting read. The characters, despite being limited by Mills and Boons conventions, are likeable and not too trite. The main female character manage [...]

    13. The heroine got stuck in a snow storm and was found by a leopard and the hero. The hero was a grump but eventually she fell in love with him, after putting up with a lot of nonsense. He in turn fell in love with her and thus the story ends.Decent story, the hero drove me insane. I don't think this would be a book I'd read again.

    14. I went looking for this book thanks to the "30 Day Book Challenge" on Facebook and I'm glad I found it. I remember reading this when I was probably middle school age and now, just for old time's sake, I want to read it again.

    15. Omg, if you loved this book, you should watch the movie. It is a freakin' gem, I tell you. This title is a classic, and whereas I enjoyed it, I didn't love it. If you consider yourself a Harlequin reader and you haven't read this one, go ahead and check it off your list.

    16. i think it was perfect what she did in this novel i enjoyed reading it and i wished if i could be with them

    17. أعجبتني على الرغم من انها تقليدية مترجمة للعربية بعنوان " صحراء الثلج"

    18. I remember finding this many years ago amongst my Grandma's collection of Mills & Boon books. For a 12/13 year old, it seemed very racy and I read it a few times.
