The Price of Desire

4.7 Stars
From 21 Reviews

All Lalune wants to do is sing.
Problem is, she's underwater. Literally.
This despairing mermaid needs a way out. Only a miracle will do.

Monique’s exit from her blazing culinary career has left her heart raw and cold.
A sizzling weekend with a sexy stranger melts her defenses. But is it enough to light her fire once again?

These two stories move from the dark depths of the ocean to a Las Vegas penthouse, intersecting with a spicy connection full of sparks and surprise.

The Price of Desire is a steamy, standalone, contemporary romance interlaced with fantasy elements.

Women's Fiction Contemporary Romance General Fantasy

Message from PE Kavanagh

"A superbly written and perceptive novel, by turns graceful and trenchant. Kavanagh is particularly good at rendering the inner life of a woman in love, her dreams and insecurities. Every man in a relationship with a woman should read this book."

Two For The Price Of One

by MJM2003

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. This a clever book written by PE Kavangh. In The Price of Desire we actually have two stories. The first is a mythical story about a mermaid called Lalune who has a beautiful singing voice and wants to do that professionally but the problem is that as she lives underwater how can she make her way on land?? Read to find out what happens and I hope you'll be as pleased as I was. The second is all on land and surrounds Monique who is an accomplished chef, divorced and with two wonderful daughters but she doesn't seem to have the time to spend with them nor find a love life for herself so she decides that this cannot go on any longer and this determined lady sets out to make her life so much more fulfilling. Two strong female leads who know what they want and will do their very best to succeed! Great fun to read although, I confess the beginning of the first took me a while to get into, once I had the writing flowed smoothly.
Great Book! RECOMMENDED

Entertaining read for sure

by John L

I enjoyed how the author weaved the characters' stories of two different worlds into this one entertaining story. The characters all had to struggle with many ups and downs in their search to satisfy the life and love they desired, and the price it would cost them to achieve those goals. It was also engrossing to see how the flawed characters would handle their flaws in relation to achieving these goals and just to live their life as they dreamt it would be. I am definitely looking forward to the second book that was previewed in this one. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

A mermaid's tail, and a tale to boot

by Anonymous

The writing here will have you as captivated as the story. There are few authors that can craft a believable fantasy and reality in a single story, especially with the grace that P. E. Kavanagh has done here. It's a wonderful story that will have fantasy romance and erotic romance readers alike swooning.

The book starts out with a bit of fantasy then dives into reality. The characters have depth and personality. The story seems real, something that could happen around the corner. Yet the story contains something more than just mundane romance. There is something elusive we’ve all been searching for in this story, one that makes you want to fall in love with the book.

Just right amount of reality interwoven with fantasy

by vamsally

The book starts out with a bit of fantasy then dives into reality. I was little discombobulated initially then got really into the story. The characters have depth and personality. The story seems real, something that could happen around the corner. Yet the story contains something more than just mundane romance. There is something elusive we’ve all been searching for in this story, one that makes you want to fall in love with the book.

A Very Good Start!!!

by Anonymous

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. I liked the whole concept of two stories intertwined but it was mostly one story with bits of another story thrown in. I liked the characters. The story was easy to follow. I didn't like how I would get into the story and then unexpectedly have the second story pop up. Still the book was good.

The Price of Desire

by Angeleyes

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

The Price of Desire opens with a fantasy story about Lalune.
She’s a mermaid who wants to give up her ocean life to become an on land singer.
Then another story there’s Monique story.
She’s a divorced mother of two daughters. She’s an accomplished chef.
Her life is demanding and she’s looking for a more laid back job so she can spend more time with her girls.
Ms. Kavanagh does an amazing job with this unique captivating book!
It’s written beautifully and the characters are interesting and pulling.
It’s a blend of fantasy and reality,romance and the erotic.

A very nice surprise!

by Lilique

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

I admit to coming to Booksprout following a certain author I like. This book was next to the one I wanted, and I was intrigued by its cover so I just decided to try it.

And then I started reading it, and and the author mesmerised me, dripping feelings with beautiful words into a pool of emotions, taking me under and filling me to the brim. It's the way she paints emotions and draws characters with skillful strokes of her pen that got me, more than the story itself.

There's also an interesting duality in the book - the siren's story almost childish in style, and the life story strong and compelling.

Excellent writing in my opinion, I'll keep following this siren's song.
