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!

"[A] crowd-pleasing hot-blooded romance." (Publishers Weekly)
The book was fine - it was the narrator who was the problem!
Yes! I've listened to many others narrated by men and they were all excellent.
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.
None. There was nothing wrong with the story.
"Romance and Intrigue"
Yes, it's nice to be able to sit back and picture places and people in your mind, while described by a professional reader.
There were several points of interest that are memorable.
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.
Yes, I did listen to it all in one sitting.
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.
Absolutely dreadful. Boring, whiny main character with a soooo predictable plot. No romance!!! Total waste of a credit.
