Jasper Bond turns (female) heads wherever he goes. He can’t dance, isn’t known for his restraint, and his blood heats whenever he’s near his latest employer, the unwittingly sexy Eliza Martin. She insists no one will believe an intellectual like her could be seduced by a man of action like Jasper, but the combination of his desire and her mystery makes the case one he can’t resist. Client satisfaction is a point of pride and it’s his pleasure to prove he’s just the man she needs after all....

A DEFINATE PLEASURE TO LISTEN TO
Well Sylvia Day delivers another cleverly and skilfully written romance containing likeable characters which were all brought to life by the talented voice of Justine Eyre and jointly they will mentally transport you back in time to Regency England where you will find a rewarding and enjoyable listen awaiting you.
Right from their first meeting the all too handsome Thief-taker Jasper knew he had to have the wealthy heiress Eliza who was contemplating employing him on a secret mission, but he didn't want her money - he wanted her mind and body, but she thought he was just too everything.... too handsome, too charismatic, too sexy etc. Eliza therefore was reluctant to employ him - so, for Jasper, the challenge was set and he planned to woo and win her and his weapon of choice was of course.... seduction. However, during the task of finding out the who and why someone wanted to either scare or even kill her the couple became obsessed with each other and could no longer deny their fevered passions which resulted in some nice sexy, yet tender, love scenes.
There's passion, romance, sexual chemistry, likeable main H/H who are joined by a good supporting cast as well as an interesting plot that had hidden agendas, secrets, mysteries, murder, surprises, but mainly faith, trust and love won the day and when they were joined by truth then there could only be one outcome - and one we all love - a happily ever after.
Worth a credit? I would have happily spent a credit and not have been disappointed at all but as this was under $10 I bought it and saved the credit for my next more expensive listen.

If I could get my money back I would...
What would have made Pride and Pleasure better?
Horrible narration, couldn't follow the story line, disappointed since Sylvia Day is an excellent author!
What do you think your next listen will be?
How did the narrator detract from the book?
What character would you cut from Pride and Pleasure?
I couldn't get that far. I made it 15 minutes and was so lost I couldn't continue.
