Pride and Pleasure, the classic erotic romance - by Sylvia Day, author of the sensational international bestselling Bared to You, first book in the Crossfire series - is a tale of ambition, love and lust.
Pursued by fortune hunters, heiress Eliza Martin is the victim of diabolical scheming to get her to the altar. She won't be bullied, however, and she will get to the bottom of this plot. She needs a man to infiltrate her suitors and find the villain. Thief-taker Jasper Bond is entirely too devilish and too dangerous - who'd believe Eliza would be seduced by a man like him? But client satisfaction is a point of pride with Jasper and it's his pleasure to prove he's just the man - for all her needs.
Praise for Sylvia Day:
'Move over Danielle Steel and Jackie Collins, this is the dawn of a new Day' Amuse
'Several shades darker and a hundred degrees hotter than anything you've read before' Reveal
Light Regency romance meets a little bit of mystery in this charming if rather implausible tale of Eliza Martin, a practical, intelligent spinster heiress who longs to retire solo to the country but is pressured by her uncle to continue meeting with fortune-hunting suitors. Suspicious that recent mishaps are attempts on her life, she hires attractive thief-taker Jasper Bond to pose as an additional suitor in order to investigate the men around her, unaware of his secret connections to her social circle and his desire to seduce her himself. The plot is mostly put aside to focus on eager public flirtations, private erotic discoveries, and developing true love. Romance readers who like their virgins self-confident and their heroes experienced but not jaded will enjoy Eliza and Jasper's dynamic, and the period feel never falters even when things get steamy.
