A powerful New York Times bestseller by the queen of Texas romance, The Price is a novel of intrigue, passion, ambition, and love set amid Houston's towering skyscrapers and the majestic plains of South Texas ranch country. Luke Creed has sacrificed everything for his career at the prestigious law firm DeWitt & Blackthorne: a chance to run his family's ranching empire, his marriage, and even time with his two daughters. Defending a major client in a wrongful death case, Luke crosses paths with his high school sweetheart, Amy Hazeltine Nash, an advocate for the bereaved plaintiff. Now, Luke and Amy are divided by forces beyond themselves—and overcome by an all-consuming desire. But when the case takes a deadly twist, Luke delves into a dangerous web of corruption that may place his life in jeopardy—and may also target the one woman who loves Luke for who he really is: rebel, cowboy, loner, and lover.

Professional reviews

"Stevie Ray Dallimore uses tone and nuance to portray love and danger as he depicts Luke Creed, attorney for Hyland Pharmaceuticals, as a driven professional and a caring divorced father. Creed is determined to excel in defending Hyland from lawsuits over D-Free, a new diabetic drug; success in his endeavor will earn him a partnership in the firm. Dallimore characterizes Creed with complexity as he's torn between ambition and ethical conflict. Then his research on the drug reveals that his diabetic 8-year-old daughter is in mortal danger. While Dallimore's portrayal of Creed's high school sweetheart is disappointing, the story line, with its ensuing murder, keeps the listener's attention. G.D.W. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine"
