Loved it! wished it came in paperback release instead of hardcover - got it from the library - couldn't wait for the paperback version . . . More Cynsters! Yum!!!
Another good read from this author.
This book was ok. It would have been better if it was about 100 pages shorter. Way too wordy.
what a fantastic book.couldn't put it down
I absolutely loved this book! I have read it several times. The characters make you love them with their flaws and strengths. I would absolute recommend this book to anyone who is into historical romances!
A Cynster Novel...which says it all. Everyone of the books in this series has strong characters and a plot which includes hot romance, sub-plots, new characters you wonder when you will learn more about and, of course, foiling the evil plot. Satisfying as always.
I thought that it was a good book. It had to do with the Cynster line.
this book was okay. The characters thoughts were repeated too much. I skipped alot of pages when the characters were "thinking about their situations"
Dillion Caxton, protege of Demon Cynster, is disillusioned with love. Blessed with wealth, status, and stunning good looks, he has no time for marriage-hungry misses. As a guardian of the "Sport of Kings" he has a daring criminal scheme to thwart --- one that threatens to wreak havoc on the thoroughbred racing world.
Enter ravishingly beautiful Lady Priscilla Dalloway. She, too, has no time for romance -- she has to rescue her horse-mad twin brother from the dangerous swindle in which he's become enbroiled. But the man holding the key to finding her twin is Dillion -- who allows her to believe he is immune to her charms.
The lady is Dillion's only lead to the criminals, and Pris will do anything to save her twin, including seducing the said-to-be unseducible. Linked in a journey riddled with danger and passion, they find themselves facing that terrifying question: What price love?
She always provides interesting plot-lines to go along with her appealing characters. This one doesn't disappoint.
Great story! Love the Cynster series
Stephanie Laurens writes great romance books, and this is no exception. This is another of the Cynster family books. They are very intertaining.
I'm not a huge Stephanie Laurens fan, her style gets a little over written at times, and I find myself skimming the pages.
This book was okay. Interesting plot.
Perhaps he should call her bluff...but no matter how intently he searched her eyes, he couldn't be sure she wasn't lying. It was posssible her tale, fanciful though it was, was the unvarnished truth....
The distance between them was too great for him to be sure, but he thought her eyes snapped. For an instant, the outcome hung in the balance---whether she would retreat, or try some other, possibly more high-handed means of persuasion--but then she signed again, and smoothly rose. Dillon rose, too, surprised by her very real impulse to do something to prolong her visit.......
I was so pleased to find another Cynster book and look forward to the next one. Fun Characters!
Very good book. I read it in 2 days.
I waited for this book and was very excited to read the next Cynster novel, but it was a huge disappointment. I consider this a sub-par Cynster, like On a Wild Night. The mystery plot was not engaging at all and the details of horse racing overwhelmed the story at times. The characters made completely non-sensical decisions just to prolong the story and it became very annoying. I skimmed the middle of the book and my attention was only re-engaged when Priscilla and Dillon were back in London and he learned her true identity. Otherwise, I thought that the preview for the 14th Cynster at the back of the book was a better read than the entire 13th book.

One of the best in the Cynster series.
I'm only a casual follower of the Cynster novels, and I enjoyed this story as much as the others. Very similar in all ways, about 250 pages in, I wondered if I had already read it and had to check to see that I hadn't. But it is a solid historical romance with likeable characters and a bit of a mystery. Some visits from the couples from the earlier novels let us know that their happily-ever-afters are still going strong.
I thought this book was just OK. I just don't like the second generation of Cynsters as much as the first. Laurens' later books are much more formulaic than the earlier ones. The sex and mystery in this one is pretty good though.
Dillon Caxton, protege of Demon Cynster is the Keeper of the Register of all racing horses in England. His standing and aloofness make him undeniably desirable to young ladies but his attention is unfixed. Until Miss Priscilla Dalling erupts into his life. a stunning beauty, she affects Dillon as no other ever has, but what fascinates him is that this tempting lady is clearly desperate, and equally clearly lying about wanting to see the Register to fulfill the whim of an eccentric aunt!
Not near as good as the early Cynster novels. I just found this one average.
Though I thought the book was a little longer than necessary, I truly enjoyed reading it!
Excellent book. One of my favorites by Stephanie Laurens.
Great historical romance fulled with great, STEAMY scenes. The author did a wonderful job creating the chemistry between the main characters - Dillion and Pris.
