Loyal. Beautiful. Professional. Impeccably organized. Potentially lethal. Sarah Stevens is a woman with many distinct qualities. First and foremost a butler par excellence, skilled at running large households smoothly and efficiently, she is also a trained bodyguard and expert marksman - indispensable to her elderly employer, a courtly gentleman whom Sarah has come to respect and love. Then one night she thwarts a burglary in progress, a courageous act that awards Sarah her requisite "fifteen minutes of fame" with the local press. But the exposure is enough to catch the attention of a tortured soul who, unbeknownst to Sarah, will stop at nothing to have her for himself. Sarah's perfectly ordered life is shattered when tragedy strikes: her beloved employer is brutally murdered. The detective investigating the case assures Sarah that she is not a suspect. Until lightning strikes twice. There's a second killing - and this time, despite a lack of evidence connecting her to the crime, Sarah cannot escape the shadow of guilt. The only option left for Sarah is to carry on with her life. But she doesn't realize that a deranged stalker is luring her into an elaborate trap...one in which she, once ensnared, might never escape. For Sarah soon finds herself at the mercy of a man who will tend to her every whim, smother her with affection, and crush her in his all-consuming embrace. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " The suspense was compelling and the plot took some very interesting twists. My only complaint is that I had to skip a few chapters of unnecessary physical relations to get back to the mystery, which I very much wanted to see solved! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara M. | 2/10/2014

    " "Dying to Please" is a little slow on the take off, but towards the end it gets a lot better. I'm still waiting on one of Howard's books to blow me away, but for right now she keeps me entertained enough to keep coming back for more. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Showe Yaj | 1/29/2014

    " The kickass main character amused the heck outa me. I give this book a thumbs up! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Misty | 1/24/2014

    " Loved the narrator! The main character was one tough chick! I wasn't wild about the villan but over all it was pretty good! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shirley | 1/17/2014

    " I liked the book up until after Sarah was accused of the second murder and all Cahill could think of was how he. wanted to have sex with her instead of trying to comfort her. He did the same thing after rescuing her from Trevor. I don't think many women would be thinking of sex after being held hostage , beaten and violated by a psycho killer "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Debbie | 1/13/2014

    " Seriously love this book!! "

    " This was so long ago, only thing I remember is that it was somewhat predictable to me. "

    " One of my favorite authors! Great book!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicole | 11/27/2013

    " The hero and heroine were funny in this one. I loved their banter. And the fact that the woman was a butler and could kick butt definitely makes this a favorite. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joy | 11/13/2013

    " Good book, pretty entertaining. It was the typical thriller/romance, but with an interesting different story line. I love books that keep you turning the page and this was definitely one of those. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Clare | 10/3/2013

    " Well I really did enjoy this book, esp the main feamle character who was strong and independant. The story held my attention and I read the book quite quick. "

    " No surprises and not as fresh as I have come to expect from her "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mical | 6/10/2013

    " Smooth reading, great writing. This is one of those when you know who the culprit is. When will the good guys? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bonnie Laine | 5/15/2013

    " Quick easy read. Nice beach book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Natalia Sulca | 9/27/2012

    " the first half of this book was boring for me. For some reason, i couldn't get in to it. Then in the second half, I actually started to love it! I appreciate that Linda Howard can write many different things! Her books aren't predictable for me, and man! The sex sceens are hot! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharon Lofton | 7/5/2012

    " this is classic Linda Howard at her best. Guessing the killer was little challenge but it was certainly enjoyable to try. Howard's trademark witty repartee was a definite plus here. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dawn ♥ romance | 6/22/2011

    " I liked this story but it was kind of slow going with too much character background, lots of mental speculation and event analysis but the ending was exciting for both romance and action. Butler Sarah catches burglars and detective Cahill comes to investigate.a "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 5/2/2011

    " Terrific dialogue, realistic chemistry, explosive first sex scene. Incredibly creepy bad guy. Cahill is adorable and Sarah a worthy heroine. "

    " I love mysteries like this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elise | 12/20/2010

    " One of her better new ones. I liked the characters in this one - even if I thought the hero deserved a hard kick in the 'nads. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Avary | 12/12/2010

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lisa | 10/3/2010

    " Not my favorite, I like this author, but this one is not her best. A bit pushed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maurisa | 6/19/2010

    " Creepy villain! Great murder mystery. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mollie *scoutrmom* | 5/28/2010

    " As a thriller this is tops, fantastic plot. As a romance it's OK. The characters come alive almost immediately and we learn more and more about their motivations as events unfold around them. We even learn a bit about the villian's thoughts and motivations. I'd read this again "
