In 1831, Lady Pricilla Dalloway needs to find out what trouble her twin brother has fallen into now. He is crazy about horses and seems to have been drawn into a bad crowd involved in dishonest horse racing. Pris is determined to save her twin, especially after she hears that the last man who had his job is missing. When Russ writes her and tells her that he is going to check the horse register, she decides to venture out with her aunt and her aunt's goddaughter.

Reformed rake Dillon Caxton is the keeper of the breeding register, and the only one who can help Pris, but he seems unaffected by her charms. He is however interested when she asks him about the register. He was once involved in scandal, and having since redeemed himself, does not want to face another. When Dillon refuses to let Pris look at the register, she thinks nothing of trying to seduce him to save her brother. Dillon is unsure whether the beauty is involved in the scandal and doesn't want to risk his reputation. But soon, both Pris and Dillon are unable to curb their feelings for each other, while the people around them seem to want them to get together. Can they trust each other enough to save Russ, and is it just lust they are feeling or could it be the real thing?

Stephanie Laurens crafts a story filled with deception, suspense and steamy romance. What Price Love? brings Dillon and Pris together to find out what is going on behind the scenes in horse racing. Their relationship heats up but they can't trust each other because neither knows what side the other is on. Once they resolve to help each other regardless, the romance takes over and it's a hard book to put down.
