mouth down to his To loveou forever he whispered just before their lips metLottie Nick page 383 This woman is still my go to when I find myself slipping further and further into bad reads If I m going to read fluff it might as well be fun fluff Kleypas brings the fun every time Well almost every time I m still trying to forget about Christmas at Friday Harbor Books 1 and 2 of the Bow Street Runners were not my favorite offerings from Kleypas I almost decided not to read Worth Any Price in favor of checking out one of her other series which I haven t read Te vas sin decir adiós yet I m glad now that I found a copy of this book while cleaning and decided to give it a go The formula is still pretty much the same so ifou ve read Kleypas ou ll know what to expect I was almost sort of hoping that the lead character Nick would explore his kink side than he did with the mention of his desire to tie a woman up and have his way with her His version of kink made vanilla look exotic But that s alright I don t read HR for the highly charged eroticism even if LK always has a wonderful way of conveying sensuality and connection between a man and a woman And as always the lead female manages to pierce through the armor surrounding the broken man We smileWe swoon a littleWe appreciate the HEAAnd that s good enough for me This was an amazing book From very early on in the story I knew two things Nick was going to become one of my favorite heroes if not my very favorite and this book was going to be one of the top favorites of my all time favorite books I give this book 10 starsWhen we first met Nick Gentry in Lady Sophia s Lover I had my doubts about him I don t really know what it was that bothered me about him maybe he seemed cocky or something but to be honest I wasn t that thrilled about reading his book But then I read some great reviews about his book and I changed my mind I was excitedNick s story begins with him at Mrs Bradshaw s Brothel So my first thoughts were ugh I don t want to read about this guy s mistress I want to read about the heroine t want to read about this guy s mistress I want to read about the heroine very uickly I changed my mind he had my attention and my sympathy He was a 24 ear old virgin and he no longer wanted to be one Since he was put in prison at the age of 14 he had turned away and cringed at all human touch So that made it uite difficult to be with a woman intimately Besides no woman had ever come along that made him want to allow her to touch him But his sexual urges were growing stronger to the point that it became important to satisfy that urge rather than continue to keep himself from being touched So he and Mrs Bradshaw began meeting over the course of three Happy Valley years where she taught him all the skills he would need to satisfy a lover and himself After a time she told him it was time for him to go find another womanNick Gentry was looking for Charlotte Lottie Howard He had been hired by Lord Radnor to find Lottie after she had been missing for twoears Lord Radnor is a disgusting old man who made a deal with Lottie s family He would give them money to eat and live on if they would give Lottie their oldest daughter to him in marriage But Lottie refuses to be prey to Lord Crusty and so she runs awayNick finds Lottie working as a companion to the Earl of Westcliff s mother at Stony Cross Park Yay we get to spend time with Marcus another favorite of mine sigh What Nick didn t expect to find another favorite of mine sigh What Nick didn t expect to find a woman who would make him feel unlike any other before There is an immediate attraction between the two of them and sparks start to fly When the earl of Westcliff finds out the true identity and fate of his mothers companion he proposes marriage to her to protect her But Nick won t allow someone else to take Lottie from him and Lottie won t allow the Earl to settle for a loveless marriage So Nick offers marriage to Lottie He truly feels sorry for the lot that had been dealt to her and he knows that if he does not protect her from the old Lord Creep a lot then she would be destroyed mind body and soulWhat I love about the relationship between Nick and Lottie is that they actually get along very well They complement each others personalities very well and grow uite open and close to each other early on in their marriage It was very refreshing to see that Lottie never allowed Nick to bully her she was able to speak her mind in front of him She did not fear him when the rumors she d heard about him told her she should fear him And Nick showed her such kindness and the fun side of life a side she had not seen since she was a little girl of 8 ears old being betrothed to Lord Dirty Old Man Lottie and Nick did have their problems to work through though Remember Nick comes into this marriage with an awful lot of baggage that he needs to work through But with his spirited and tough new bride it was sure
*to happenthis was *happenThis was of those stories where the hero and heroine both captured my heart They were both such tortured souls but worked through their problems beautifully Oh and I love the ending with Sir Ross Cannon and Nick finally able to agree on somethingAmazing book and I cannot wait to read it again Lisa Kleypas is simply an amazing woman to be able to create the heroes that she doe. E much than a union in name only For he senses what Charlotte does not et know that her appetite for sensuality matches his own But what Nick learns surprises him For while London's most notorious lover might claim Charlotte's body he uickly discovers it will take much than passion to win her love. ,
Ections displayed in subtle ways In this book there was one paragraph written so perfectly that in those few sentences we were given a candid glimpse into the depth of the love Sir Ross holds for SophiaSir Ross had just joined Sophia Nick and Lottie as they sat visiting and drinking chocolate Sir Ross laughed as he bent to kiss her cheek It would have been an ordinary husbandly gesture except for the way he finished the kiss with a soft nearly imperceptible nuzzleIt was such a small gesture Pacific Edge (Three Californias Triptych, yet so intimate It s moments like these found in all of Kleypas stories which mean so much to me I love seeing these exchanges rather than being told about them And as I said in just a few words we see the depth of the affection Sir Ross and Sophia feel for each other and this isn t even their book In Worth Any Price we are given a tale of redemption of coming to grips with a harsh past of learning to deal with that past and leaving it behind Not an easy thing to do for a man who is used to keeping his thoughts and fears to himself but he finds that painful burden much easier to bear when he finally shares it with Lottie the only woman who had ever managed to work her way into his heart and she did so without trying she was just herselfI m not going to ruinour read of the book by giving away too many details I ll only say that Worth Any Price is a story filled with love hope trust and the importance of family It is the story of John Sydney and Nick Gentry the boys they were and the man they became I loved Nick Gentry since his first appearance in Lady Sophia s Lover the previous book in this series After reading Worth Any Price I m pleased to say I m not disappointed Yes he wasn t perfect and did some unpleasant to put it mildly things in the past but LK did a wonderful job justifying his actions I just couldn t not love NickI loved Lottie too She was strong and much able to fend for herself even though she herself doubt it sometimes In summary she was the perfect woman to help Nick overcome his fears and accept himselfThe story was also good but it didn t take me away from Nick and Lottie They were the strongest point of the book IMHO I kept turning the pages because I wanted to know how they were going to work things out together not because I was interested in how the matter with Lord Radnor or the revealing of Nick s true identity would be resolvedBUT I have a minor complaint Well maybe not so minor because it was so annoying that prevented me from giving this book a 5 star rating As many readers already said before me I really didn t like Nick s constant bragging about learning sexual techniues from his former lover So NOT romantic If I were Lottie I d have smacked him in the head every time he started on that road LOLAll in all I really liked this book and I m still a devoted fan of Ms Kleypas This one would have gotten four stars from me if not for the dangling plot point regarding Charlotte s family Seriously her parents were tossing their daughters at rich psychotic perverts and we re not gonna revisit that topic Sloppy Lottie had lived most of her life under the thumb of her family s crazed benefactor She ran away and has found a semblance of peace in the country until she s found by a certain dangerous bow street runner The first 8 chapters are magical but IMO the story goes down hill pretty uickly after There are a few mini plots secret identities mental scars family issues aside from the main romanceprotection plot With skill extremely predictable books can be enjoyable but this ain t the case here I guess my biggest gripe is that Lady Sophia s Lover was so brilliant The Chemistry between Sophia and Ross is explosive not just the eventual
sex but the banter and how we watch their attraction grow into love We rebut the banter and how we watch their attraction grow into love We re shown that with Nick and Lottie just toldSo what he buys her a crap load of dresses and some candy Nick never fleshes out into a fully dimensional character All we re left knowing at end of the novel is mostly what we went in knowing he s handsome reckless and something horrible happened to him as a teen Now he just has a wife and a few other superficial changes to his residence and profession uick summary of chpts 7 12 all side plots not included purposelycue hot sexLottie tell me about Killing Lizards your selfNick I m so not talking toou now I m as cold as Ice Feel the chill of my haughty retreat into myselfLottie Oh noez I ve gone and done it again haz a sadNick my secret is so dark so painful sighNick Lets go shopping spend spend spend Lottie waitnook Dragon Age, Volume 1 yayNick Danger is so smexysex sex sexLottie lets sleep in my room togetherNick NEVER I m off to run the streets that ll learnou flips cape in the wind dramatically then flees into the nightLottie I shall cringe like a abused puppy and wring my hands until he returns fret fret fret Lottie why is he so schitzo I just want to wuvvvv himNick s Sister He s mysterious he s always been mysterious dum dum dum dumshop spend shop spend shopNick the crazy old man will never get Finding and Funding Great Deals: The Hands-On Guide to Acquiring Real Estate in Any Market you I will protectou always frowns unless he manages to get in Death of a Kingfisher (Hamish Macbeth, your bedroom whileour sleeping then our shit out of luckLottie Your the bestest except when ou to get in Cosmic Love your bedroom whileour sleeping then Burnt your shit out of luckLottie Your the bestest except whenou like a petulant ass which is most of the time but I m martyr a few temper tantrums from Nick and kinky sex scenesLottie It s ok Yes, Im Hot in This you can tell meNick I can t sighLottie sureou can I bet it starts with a r and rhymes with ape go for itNick Oh no it wasn t that The great horror of my life doesn t have the actual gravity of that Alas I m plagued by guilt memories of violence criminalsand death though I ve done really bad things am a former criminal king pin have seen and caused much death and partake in violence often tremblesLottie I still love The Elements of User Onboarding you Nick shock aweSo while sex scenes were smokin there was no actual romance to speak of nor character growth Personally I think Kleypas was trying so hard to throw in enough tortured angst and cliched themes that she lost her way This review will be written in a series of letters Dear Nick GentryI want to sincerely apologize for my extreme dislike ofou in Lady Sophia s Lover I am going to attribute it to the fact that I didn t really know I Stole Freddie Mercurys Birthday Cake you and the fact thatou only showed me As Brumas de Avalon your Extreme Jerk Off side in the previous bookOver threeears later I now see that I judged Possession you too uickly Allou needed was someone to give The Great Race you a chance at a better life to proveour worth Thank God The 200 Year Plan: America's Shadow Government the Great Deceit you were able to receive that chance Because nowou are no longer a reckless devil may care bad boy You have realized that Norma Jeans School of Witchery you have a good life and things worth living for You ve gone from only caring aboutourself to considering the lives of othersYou learned to trust another human being with Greed (The Damning, your secrets pain fears and doubtsYou have learned to love Andou learned that the love of those Stepping Out with Grandma Mac you care about most is worth any priceI am so glad to have been able to witness this transformation inou my loveLove alwaysLeahDear LottieThank Tronix 1 Fundamental Concepts Electronics Technology Training you for beingou I loved Taut (Rook and Ronin Spinoff, you from the beginning ofour adventure with the infamous Nick Gentry You immediately enchanted me.

This one did nothing for me really Couldn t warm to either character I really enjoyed the first two in the series This one left me cold Skimmed the last 20% I didn t care I have no idea whyI feel I should give it a three but honestly I cannot It was OK but I did not love it I did not even really like it Nick Gentry most current mission is to find a missing lady the man whom she is betrothed to is desperate to find her But when Nick finally finds her which wasn t that difficult but then he meets her and only desires to keep her for himself Knowing that she is in desperate circumstances he offers her a solution to marry him and have protection from her fiancee whom she would rather die than be married to So even though its not a ideal situation for Charlotte she agrees knowing that both her and her family would be taken care of is she agrees to marry Nick and she would have protection from the one she despises and fears the most The passion is awakened in Charlotte a desire that she didn t know she had in her and every fiber in her comes alive with his sensual touch And knows that her heart is at risk for she could very well fall in love with this sensual Escape from Shangri-La yet secretive manWorth Any Price is the third and final installment in the Bow Street Runners series that Lisa Kleypas has created Worth Any Price is Nick Gentry story and after seeing him previously I have definitely been looking forward to reading his story Nick is a special hero and one that is close to my heart and one of my favorite characters that this author has created He is a haunted and dangerous man but there is a appeal about him whereou just want to comfort the man for he has gone through many hardships throughout his life Worth Any Price is a charming story about two people who deserve love and happiness having never been able to find it for themselves but together will find the most exuisite pleasure and joy From the first page I was drawn into the story and could hardly put it down and is captivating to the boneI LOVED itMy Favorite uote You ll find life far enjoyable as my wife Gentry Continued You won t be anyone s servant You can do as ou please within reasonable limits And ou won t have to fear Lord Radnor any longer All for the price of sleeping with A Gift for God you She muttered He smiled all velvety arrogance as he replied You may come to enjoy that part of it most of all As I started to read Worth Any Price I kept flipping back to the cover to make sure I was reading a LK book and not another author by mistake I ve read a good amount of LK books and enjoy her style of writing greatly but with Worth Any Price it was very unusual style that differ from other LK books I ve read so far one with of a teasing sensual level I ve only found in one other of her books Rating this book was also tough as it was a different take on LK s style but not in a bad way LK always seems to make the best memorable heroes and Nick is right up there with the best he was like uicksilver at times always moving thinking trying to move on while fighting against the flow and the odds At times I wanted to push him away and other times I wanted to hold him close he was teasing with a devil may care smile and other times so very lonely and lost trying to find a new way in his life He had one of the highest sensual levels that at times I did feel got in the way of finding out of what s going in his head but it only went to showou a deeper meaning behind his actions and open his thoughts Lottie was gentle and kind on the outside with a core of steel on the inside while Nick came to be know as strong and reckless Lottie really was the leader of the relationship opening up to Nick and giving him the support he needed to face his past demons While I enjoy the sensual level between these two I did feel Nick s lack of tack did get in the way comparing his wife to his old loverteacher But taking a big grain of salt with that I looked at it at a different angle Nick wasn t raised to be a gentleman and was very blunt and truthful to a point of being hurtful and only had one lover beforehand so that pretty much made his a novice in a real relationship A novice with expressing feelings and emotions toward his wife Lottie I don t think he really saw what he was doing until later on Lottie took a lot of things in stride with Nick which I thought was really the only way to get though to him and which did in the end Lottie knew when to be tough and when to be gentle and had a lot bucket load of common sense that many romance women lack at times Worth any Price was a deep character driven story as the rest subplots were dealing with one or both Nick and Lottie I liked how the story of the Bow Street Runners tied up nicely with the New Police coming into play finally shutting down the once famous Bow Street Runners Giving everyone a fresh start at life mostly Nick Giving closure to not only the Runners but the series as well Overall I enjoyed Worth Any Price with two wonder leads that really drew ou into their story LK really showed another side to her writing that I couldn t help but love in the end giving it high marks A great ending to the Bow Street Runners series From the coverWhat is the price of loveNick Gentry is reputed to be the most skillful lover in all England Known for solving delicate situations he is hired to seek out Miss Charlotte Howard He believes his mission will be easily accomplished but that was before he met the lady in uestionFor instead of a willful female he discovers one in desperate

ReviewLisa Kleypas is one of those rare authors who seem to be able to take mere words on the page and bring them to life giving us characters who become real to us They are people we would want to live next door to people we would choose as our friends and no matter their circumstance they are
#Honorable Noble People Who #noble people who always do the right thing eventually One of the things I love most about Kleypas novels is that her stories are written so that they can be read alone et are intertwined in such a way that they can be read as a series You always have our main hero and heroine in the current book but in each subseuent novel we have the joy of revisiting those people who we came to love and care about previously We get to see how their lives have progressed how their families have care about previously We get to see how their lives have progressed how their families have and how much finding true love has blessed them In this novel we revisit Sir Ross Cannon and his wife Sophia as well as Sir Grant Morgan and his wife Victoria What a pleasure it is to see them still so much in love and to watch their aff.
