Historical Romance

First Line Friday: Pride and Pleasure – Sylvia Day

London, England, 1818

As a thief-taker, Jasper Bond had been consulted in a number of unusual locations, but today was the first in a church.

Pride and Pleasure by Sylvia Day

Wealth Has Its Dangers. . .

There are disadvantages to being an heiress, as Eliza Martin knows well. Fortune hunters corner her, friends become opportunistic, and lately, someone is engineering “accidents” to propel her into marriage. Not one to be bullied, Eliza needs the right man to infiltrate the nest of suitors. . .

. . .So Do Certain Men

By all measures, Jasper Bond is the wrong man for the job. He can’t dance, isn’t known for his restraint, and his blood heats whenever he’s near his latest employer. Eliza Martin 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. . .

I’m currently reading this fun and steamy historical romance! I can’t give too much of a review for it yet since I’m only about 40% through. But I’m definitely enjoying it!

Sylvia Day’s Crossfire series is one of my fave romance series (check it out if you love billionaire romance, CEO romance, or books with a 50 Shades of Grey vibe) and I’ve enjoyed several other of her books, so I already figured I’d like Pride and Pleasure — and I am!

Also just a head’s up, since it’s a historical romance, you should definitely go check out the beautiful old-school covers on the different editions too!
