The Cynster experience — and Laurens phenomenon — continues with this lushly romantic follow-up to her internationally bestselling hardcover The Truth About Love. Dillon Caxton, protégé of Demon Cynster, is disillusioned with love, jaded by the knowledge that ladies desire his handsome face and figure rather than the man. But as one of the elected guardians of the sport of kings, he has more pressing matters on his mind, namely a criminal scheme set to wreak havoc on the world he's sworn to protect. Enter Lady Priscilla Dalloway. She has no time for the men who swoon at her feet, seeing her only as a trophy to be won. Arriving in Newmarket to rescue her brother, unwittingly embroiled in some illicit scheme, she is forced to seek Dillon's assistance. Beginning as antagonists, the pair continue as co-conspirators, eventually progressing to lovers as they seek to identify the villain behind the illicit scheme. Along the way each learns what love can bring them, ultimately facing the question of what sacrifices they will make in order to secure that love. Stephanie Laurens lives in Victoria and is an active self-promoter. New York Times bestselling author. Comparable author: Johanna Lindsey. Australia’s most successful romance author.
