This story starts in a conflict between the main characters Jeremy Adair "Dare" North, Marquess of Wolverton and Julienne Laurent. These two were lovers one summer and Dare's grandfather tore them apart. I find it amazing that Dare never realizes that his grandfather was behind Julienne's betrayal until well past the half way point of the book. However, unrequited love isn't the only conflict in this story. Dare is still searching for the traitor Lord Caliban. Even though Napoleon is on the verge of abdicating his throne the traitor is still trying to win the war. Ms. Jordan has done an admiral job of keep the identity of the traitor a secret. Never giving away much about the man and keeping the reader guessing right up until the end of the book almost.

While the search for the elusive Lord Caliban is a riveting it is secondary to the lovers and their unending need to prove that they can hurt the other more with each round of their competition. Dare doesn't fully trust Julienne after what she did to him seven years ago. He still loves her but his jealousy is causing more problems than even he wants to admit.

Julienne wants to just develop her career and earn enough money so she can live comfortably. She is a good actress but unlike most of the female actresses of the time she isn't looking for nor does she want a protector. She has had her fill of traitorous men. Julienne is very courageous in this story. She kills the bad guy and saves the day. She has been through so much and come out stronger and maybe a little more cynical. She is so certain that she can never marry Dare. I am glad that she got her HEA.

This story some really hot love scenes. I mean what do you expect with a title like Prince of Pleasure. Ms. Jordan continues to write a wonderful story that keeps your attention. Her characters are flawed and caring and so in need of love that you cheer them on even when they are being nitwits. I am sad that Ms. Jordan left us hanging with where Grayson Caldwell went. I think it would have been a nice end to the series if he had found love and laughter as well ( )

The scent of roses filled the summer afternoon, but Julienne Laurent scarcely noticed the sweet fragrance as she waited anxiously for her lover to arrive.
