    1. What Price Love Rating 4 starsDillon Caxton is gorgeous, strong willed and passionate, a consummate risk taker who has paid his dues So when he meets his match in Lady Priscilla Pris Dallow Dalloway, equally beautiful, stubborn and hot blooded, there is no turning back for either of them Set in Newmarket amidst the glitter and muck of the racing culture, there is love, intrigue, and loads of glam as Dillon and Pris maneuver courtship rites, the upper echelons of the ton and the seedier elements [...]

    2. I ve read and enjoyed other books by Laurens, but I m struggling to finish this one The main characters bond over how difficult it is to be really really ridiculously good looking, and their contempt of people who are dazzled by their beauty except each other, of course , which is incredibly off putting They start having sex quite early in the book, without any thought to contraception or discussion of their relationship Laurens most irritating writing quirks, repeating herself and using unneces [...]

    3. Finally I don t know that I ve ever been so happy to finally reach the end of a book While I ve absolutely loved some of the books in this series, this one just didn t work for me I don t like the heroine and how it kept being repeated that she was just so stinkin beautiful people went dumb when they saw her While there was an interesting mystery, I thought thy spent too much time hashing and rehashing their plans rather than just doing it The last 25 30 pages were outstanding and held all the a [...]

    7. This book was so engrossing In addition to the usual I m feisty, you re feisty, together we re spicy romance plotline, there s a very intricate plot about horse racing and switching out horses and a gambling racket It was fascinating I actually enjoyed it a lot, even though I m kind of burned out on romance novels.In that respect, saddling herself with an innocent, sweet young thing like Miss Blake wasn t what one would expect of a clever and intelligentfemme fatale Yet Miss Dalling qualified as [...]

    8. Cynster time again I liked this one decently enough Not a favorite in the series, but I didn t dislike it Was the odd man out in the group this month I guess Sure, Pris got a bit annoying with her self assurance in her looks, and the way the author kept rubbing it in our faces that she was so amazingly, inconceivably gorgeous got old after the first chapter or two, but in a Cynster world full of stunningly beautiful people, I have to say I m kinda used to too many overly attractive people So whi [...]

    12. One of my least favorite in the series , the best words to describe it are boring and repetitive There was a mystery and they had a plan to find the villain so they were repeating their plans and findings over and over The romance part wasn t bad but it was lost in the whole mystery thing and it didn t have anything new compare to the other books in the series Or I simply wasn t in the mood for this book If it wasn t for a challenge and the buddy read , I would have DNFed it

    13. So this is what the two main characters have in common they re both so unbelievably gorgeous that beauty means nothing to them and they re able to look beneath the superficial Seriously And the steamy scenes got so flowery and abstract, I just started skipping over them THAT is unheard of for me It s a good thing Laurens is such a good writer because this formula that she uses with all the Cynster novels is wearing thin.

    14. Regency romance set not in London, for a change, but amongst the horse racing at Newmarket.

    15. What a great storyteller Stephanie Laurens is.I have loved every book in this series and always look for her books.The Cynster family books are just such well rounded books ,you invest in these characters and cant wait to see what they are up to in the next book.

    16. Nach einem etwas schwierigen Anfang ging es rasch weiter.Allerdings war mir Pricilla am Anfang nicht gerade Sympathisch Sie war mir doch etwas zu Selbstbewusst und berechnend.

    17. An interesting plot It was good to read of Flick, Dillon, and Demon again The read is a little slow at the beginning, but it picked up fairly quickly Loved the closure The really bad guy got his really bad just desserts I really got a kick out of what the young would be rapists got.

    19. Well that wasn t great and not up to par with the others.Actually I liked the investigation involving racing scam.I kind of liked the hero Dillon, though he was not among my preffered hero in the hero he was just playing too much being perfect after having been involved in a scam himself while much younger cf A rogue s proposal.The main problem was however the heroine who from beginning till end of the book kept encroaching upon my nerves She s so convinced to be the most exceptional beauty of h [...]

    20. It has been quite a while since I have read a HR book I happen to enjoy Stephanie Laurens books especially her Cynsters series, so i am glad i got a copy of this installment on sale The title has a similarity with one of Lisa Kleypas novels as well Anyways, i enjoyed this one well enough I became reacquainted with some of the previous characters from the previous books The main characters Lady Priscilla and Dillon Caxton, however were described as ridiculously attractive people and majority of t [...]

    21. I liked this book I loved the heroine She was pretty and intelligent I loved her quick wit and cunning She was unlike any other heroine I have ever read about and that s a good thing The heat between the main characters was explosive The intimate scenes were well written The H was also a likable character The reason I can t give this book a higher rating is because of the filler The mystery overtook the romance I learned way too much about catching a horse thief It was boring and there was too m [...]

    23. I love the Cynster clan and have now read 13 novels in the series Some are excellent the one with Devil, yum Some are acceptable For the most part this story is good and worth reading I do have two buts to add to that comment First of all, the sex scenes seem to be written by a different author The language is way too flowery, repetitive, and over the top.Second of all, this story has that heroine I love him but I won t marry him stubborn streak after she bedded him multiple times therefore cons [...]

    24. Review I preferred What Price Love to both The Ideal Bride and The Truth About Love Laurens seems to be losing her touch in the storyline department, however, possibly running out of ideas, as this one does seem very similar to the previous one, The Truth About Love I think she needs ideas, but this is a good addition to the series I always really liked Dillon Caxton, and Flick and Demon Cynster Hence it was intriguing to read Dillon s story, and to see him as not just a vulnerable child who ne [...]

    27. Egad, except for the horse racing bits, found this an overblown, overwritten piece of romance The love scenes were so longwinded that I think the writer injected her pen with Viagra.When Lady Pris trainer brother goes missing, she travels to England to find him This leads her to Dillon Caxton, keeper of the Jockey Club s breed register She needs to find out what s in the register, so she figure how to bail her bro out.He s investigating rumors of a race fixing scheme, which details in the regist [...]
