In 1807, French émigré Julienne “Jewel” Laurent and Jeremy “Dare” Adair fall in love. Though his grandfather objects to the match, Dare plans to elope. Instead she rejects his proposal insisting that Lord Riddington is her lover. Jeremy leaves in anger that his grandfather was right about his beloved being a whore.

In 1814, Lucien Tremayne asks Dare to uncover the traitor that is hurting the English cause. He wonders if Drury Lane actress Jewel is in cahoots with Riddington as French spies. He forces Jewel to deal with him and soon falls in love again and eventually exonerates her. When he learns the truth of what his deceased grandfather and the odious Riddington did to Jewel, Lucien feels shame. Still before he can make it right, he must stop the sly cleverly disguised Caliban from giving away more secrets that hurt the English.

Regency readers will enjoy THE PRINCE OF PLEASURE, an entertaining espionage romance starring two individuals whose love turn to hate and disrespect due to the machinations of his relative. The story line is loaded with action, but the audience will tire of Dare's betrayal lament and empathize with the heroine except when she relatively easily forgives him. Nicole Jordan demonstrates why she is sub-genre favorite with royally pleasurable novel.
