In 1850, a storm wrecks the ship Serendipity. Young Victoria Dearbourne, her mom and her pragmatic companion Miss Cammy Scott survive the disaster having been shipwrecked on an Oceania deserted island. Not long afterward, Victoria¿s mom dies from her injuries.----- Eight years later, Victoria¿s grandfather hired Captain Grant Sutherland to learn if any of his relatives survived and if so to bring them home. Nine searches have failed, but on the tenth Grant and crew locate Victoria and a somewhat befuddled Cammy. They bring the marooned pair back to England in triumph. However, after living free in the wild, Victoria struggles to return to the corset lifestyle of Victorian England although falling in love with her heroic rescuer makes it easier to readapt.----- PRICE OF PLEASURE is an enjoyable Victorian romance due to the antics of the lead female protagonist who is the personification of 'How 'Ya Gonna Keep 'Em Down On The Farm? (After They've Seen Paree)' though her big city was a island wilderness. The story line is fun to follow due to Victoria¿s struggle to adapt to polite society. Cammy is an intriguing sidekick and Grant and his main crewmember are solid protagonists. Still this is Victoria¿s tale, as she must make life choices.----- Harriet Klausner

Cole is always a good read

But some are better than others. A 75 page game of hide and seek in the jungle didn't exactly blow my skirt up but the book was still enjoyable.
