In Stephanie Laurens's newest novel, a passionate man and
a daring woman confront the ultimate question
What Price Love?
Dillon Caxton, protégé of Demon Cynster, is now a man of sterling reputation, but it wasn't always so. Now impeccably honest, he is the Keeper of the Register of all racing horses in England. His standing and aloofness makes Dillon undeniably desirable to young ladies, but he remains uninterested.
Until Miss Priscilla Dalloway erupts into his life. Lady Priscilla affects Dillon as no other ever has, and what fascinates him is that she will do anything to see what's in the Register. Her twin brother, Russell, who had left home to work with the finest racehorses, has disappeared. Priscilla knows clues to his whereabouts can be found in the tome Dillon Caxton refuses to let her see.
Dillon convinces Priscilla to tell him all and to trust him with her twin's life. Together, Dillon and Pris locate Rus, only to discover that his life is threatened by the perpetrators of a massive betting swindle. They embark on a journey riddled with danger as they seek to overturn the swindle and expose Rus's deadly enemies. And along the way they discover the answer to that age old question: What price love?

Concerned about her missing twin brother, Russell, and his possible involvement in a racing scandal, Lady Priscilla Dalloway will do anything to find him--including seducing Dillon Caxton, keeper of the breeding register and the man most likely to have information crucial to her search. A spin-off from the author's popular Cynster series, this story comes to life in Elizabeth Sastre's capable hands. Not only are her Irish and English accents impeccable, she manages to convey the subtle, and occasionally not so subtle, shadings of every character, however briefly they appear--most notably Dillon's bumbling sidekick, Barnaby; a couple of Cockney cabbies; and the villain, Mr. X.
