Image of The Price of Desire

Once again, Goodman delivers a
luscious and sensual romance. The
characters are engaging, and the dialogue has an authentic rhythm that makes for
a pleasurable read.

Olivia Cole thought she had hit bottom when her father threw her out, but that's nothing compared to finding herself turned over to a gambling hell's owner as payment of her brother's debts.

The notorious Griffin Wright-Jones, the Viscount of Breckenridge, is intrigued by Olivia. Beneath her air of genteelness is a will of iron, which intrigues and seduces him. When Olivia boldly asks for a place at his side in the gambling hell -- she is a heck of a dealer -- Griffin finds his curiosity and passion engaged. The lovers are soon embroiled in betrayal, revenge, murder and justice, proving that something good can come of something bad. (Zebra, Sep., 384 pp., $6.99)
