Publisher's Summary

There is nothing more fascinating than a darkly handsome rake, especially one as controlled and elusive as Dillon Caxton, protege of Demon Cynster. Despite his dangerous air, Dillon is a man of sterling reputation, but it wasn't always so. Years ago, an illicit scheme turned into a nefarious swindle, and only the help of his cousin, Felicity, and her husband, Demon, saved Dillon from ruin. Now impeccably honest, he guards his hard-won reputation and is the Keeper of the Register of all racing horses in England. His standing and aloofness make Dillon undeniably desirable to young ladies, but despite all the lures thrown his way, he remains uninterested, his attention unfixed.

Until "Miss Priscilla Dalling" erupts into his life. A stunning beauty, she affects Dillon as no other ever has, but what fascinates him even more is that this tempting young lady is clearly desperate, and equally clearly lying about wanting to see the Register to fulfill the whim of an eccentric aunt.

Lady Priscilla Dalloway will do anything to see what's in the Register, even lie! Her twin brother, Russell, who had fought with their father and left the family home to work with the finest racehorses, has disappeared. Pris knows that clues to his whereabouts can be found in the tome Dillon Caxton refuses to let her see.

She unleashes her feminine wiles on Dillon, to no avail. But Dillon is now determined to learn the truth behind her quest. Exploiting the powerful attraction that flares between them, he succeeds in convincing Pris to tell him all, to trust him with her twin's life. Together, Dillon and Pris locate Rus, only to discover that his life is being threatened by the perpetrators of a massive betting swindle!

Romance and Intrigue

Would you consider the audio edition of What Price Love? to be better than the print version?

Yes, it's nice to be able to sit back and picture places and people in your mind, while described by a professional reader.

What was one of the most memorable moments of What Price Love??

There were several points of interest that are memorable.

What does Elizabeth Sastre bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I think by listening, rather than reading it myself, it's easier to picture the surroundings, picture the different characters, etc. more clearly in ones mind. She did a good job changing her voice for the different characters.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, I did listen to it all in one sitting.

Any additional comments?

Any romance lover should enjoy this audio.

Boring - with a capital B

Incredibly dull - way too much detail about horse racing and breeding scams. No character development, no romance - a great big WASTE of time and money.

A good story spoiled by the narrator!

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

The book was fine - it was the narrator who was the problem!

Would you be willing to try another book from Stephanie Laurens? Why or why not?

Yes! I've listened to many others narrated by men and they were all excellent.

Would you be willing to try another one of Elizabeth Sastre’s performances?

NO! NO! NO! It was read far too quickly and she missed all the nuances and totally spoiled the story. I'm going to buy this novel in either paperback or eBook.

What character would you cut from What Price Love??

None. There was nothing wrong with the story.
