As a child, Elijah Davis knows something isn’t right. Following the death of his father and his own mother giving him up for adoption, Elijah grows up to understand that what isn’t right is his gender and so becomes Desiré Andersen. As a black, post-operative transgender woman, Desiré expects to find happiness—and she does—although interspersed with great sadness. The Ice Princess follows Desiré’s difficult journey. First, she struggles to become her true self. Next, she must fight to find true love, despite rape and abuse. Ultimately, she seeks to become a celebrity, eventually landing a role on a popular east coast soap opera. Through all the professional and personal battles, she remains honest with herself. Author Emmy Morgan was frustrated with the lack of transgender love stories in the world so decided to write one of her own, dreaming up Desiré and making her a strong, sexy heroine. Desiré has been through a lot, but she seeks to find friends and lovers who can thaw her frozen heart. Finally free to be herself, she will not lock her heart away but set it free.
