Lady Priscilla Dalloway’s twin brother took a job as trainer to Lord Cromarty - and then promptly disappeared. For Pris, finding her brother means seducing notorious cad Dillon Caxton. Dillon claims to have set aside his devilish ways and forged an impeccable reputation as Keeper of the Register for racehorses. He resists all women, and lets absolutely no one view the information he safeguards. But Lady Priscilla Dalloway is no ordinary temptress and she means to work her way into Dillon’s books.

Date: 1831 August
Chronology: set after The Truth About Love; before The Taste of Innocence.
Antecedents: Lady Priscilla & co are new, but Dylan Caxton first appears in March 1820 in A Rogue’s Proposal featuring Demon aka Harry Cynster and Flick aka Felicity Parteger.
Lady Priscilla Dalloway and family follow the trail of her brother Lord Russell to Newmarket to protect him and, hopefully, extract him from a shady situation. She tries to investigate while maintaining her anonymity but this just brings her to the attention of Dylan Caxton who is already investigating racing irregularities.
As a bonus, we get another appearance of Barnaby Adair investigating wrongdoing.
Yay! Simon Prebble narrating again!

I remember the first time Laurens wrote this book
Except it was called A Rogue’s Proposal, the hero was Demon, not Dillon, the heroine was Flick, not Pris, and the characters were engaging, not shallow, boring and tragically oppressed by their own devastating beauty. Horse races are still being fixed by nefarious villains, but this time I just didn’t care. I don’t mind formulaic books-that’s the reason I read historical romances. But I do mind when an author recycles an earlier book and publishes it as a brand new creation. If you want to read this book, I’d suggest saving a credit and re-reading A Rogue’s Proposal.
Simon Prebble was great, as always.
I like Stephanie Laurens and the earlier Cynster books. I’ll probably give the next one a try, and hope that this one was a blip on an otherwise enjoyable radar.
