Publisher's Summary

Wealth has its dangers...so do certain men.

Jasper Bond turns (female) heads wherever he goes. He can’t dance, isn’t known for his restraint, and his blood heats whenever he’s near his latest employer, the unwittingly sexy Eliza Martin. She insists no one will believe an intellectual like her could be seduced by a man of action like Jasper, but the combination of his desire and her mystery makes the case one he can’t resist. Client satisfaction is a point of pride and it’s his pleasure to prove he’s just the man she needs after all....

I just can't bear listening to that accent....

What would have made Pride and Pleasure better?

I think I will have to try to book instead of the audiobook for this one, I can't stand the strong "British " accent it's too distracting

A DEFINATE PLEASURE TO LISTEN TO

Well Sylvia Day delivers another cleverly and skilfully written romance containing likeable characters which were all brought to life by the talented voice of Justine Eyre and jointly they will mentally transport you back in time to Regency England where you will find a rewarding and enjoyable listen awaiting you.

Right from their first meeting the all too handsome Thief-taker Jasper knew he had to have the wealthy heiress Eliza who was contemplating employing him on a secret mission, but he didn't want her money - he wanted her mind and body, but she thought he was just too everything.... too handsome, too charismatic, too sexy etc. Eliza therefore was reluctant to employ him - so, for Jasper, the challenge was set and he planned to woo and win her and his weapon of choice was of course.... seduction. However, during the task of finding out the who and why someone wanted to either scare or even kill her the couple became obsessed with each other and could no longer deny their fevered passions which resulted in some nice sexy, yet tender, love scenes.

There's passion, romance, sexual chemistry, likeable main H/H who are joined by a good supporting cast as well as an interesting plot that had hidden agendas, secrets, mysteries, murder, surprises, but mainly faith, trust and love won the day and when they were joined by truth then there could only be one outcome - and one we all love - a happily ever after.

Worth a credit? I would have happily spent a credit and not have been disappointed at all but as this was under $10 I bought it and saved the credit for my next more expensive listen.

narrator

What could Sylvia Day have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

the story maybe good but hard to tell because of the narrator

Would you be willing to try another one of Justine Eyre’s performances?

NO!!!

Any additional comments?

the voice of the narrator made it hard to enjoy the book/story

Delicious Bodice Ripper

Oh my, that was a deliciously naughty bodice ripper!!! Loads of steam to burn your kindle up!!!

I loved Eliza's forthright attitude and the way she was so flustered by Jasper! Ya gotta love a gal who knows her mind and is ready to be a blue-stocking spinster if that is where being independent takes her. Fortunately, she meets her perfect match in Mr Bond. I love their dynamic!!

The book is a mixed narrative, which gives you insight into both leads POV alternating through out the book. I love this style because there is just so much more you can learn about them and the relationship. It was wonderful seeing them fall in love and work out how much they wanted each other.

The steam is off the charts hot!! Not your typical Historical read, this one has some hot erotic detail in the bedroom!! These two have serious chemistry from the start. Oh lordy, that first coupling is so dang hot it will have you begging for a cold shower! Oh yes, Mr. Bond has a bit of a dominant streak that comes out to play!!

The underlying story is really well dome and full of intriguing characters. There are so many suspects it is tough to keep track. And well, the conclusion was unexpected to say the least!

I listened to the audiobook narrated by Justine Eyre, who is always a delight. Like most regencies this one is delivered with a British accent. It is a light touch, very easy to understand and enjoyable to listen to throughout. She does a fantastic job with the naughty bits, managing to put heaps of energy into the action! A delicious listen!

I hope we are going to see Lord Westfield get his HEA. And perhaps something for poor Jane. I really need to look for more of Ms Day!

Pride and Pleasure

The story was just OK. I did not enjoy the narrator. She was difficult to understand and her voices were too stiff. The story would have been much better with a narrator that was easier to understand and follow.

The relationship between the main characters & the sex scenes was the most enjoyable thing about the story.

Sylvia Day at her Best.

These genre period pieces are what got me totally hooked on Sylvia Day. She is a master at conjuring historical romantic steamy stories. And, Justine Eyre's narrations are lyrical and add so much to the characters. I could listen over and over again. Probably will.
The leads are engaging and the plot moves along. Can't ask for more. Enjoy!

Unlike the others

I love this story so much! It wasn’t like the others I’ve read by S.D. because the woman wasn’t made for a man’s pleasure, so to speak, she was so different and I loved getting to know the characters. I knew the sex between them would be something interesting. And the story line was perfection. So interesting!

Narration was on point!
