What is the price of love? Nick 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 question. For instead of a willful female, he discovers one in desperate circumstances, hiding from a man who would destroy her very soul. So Nick shockingly offers her a very different kind of proposition -- one he has never offered before. He asks her to be his bride. And he knows that this will be much more than a union in name only. For he senses what Charlotte does not yet 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 quickly discovers it will take much more than passion to win her love.

4.5/5; 5 stars; AA person can't read Lady Sophia's Lover and NOT follow up with this book! Worth any Price focuses on Lady Sophia's brother and is an excellent end to the series.
Great introduction to the marvelous hero of the "Wallflowers" series - Marcus, the Earl of Westcliff, even though he is just a secondary character in this story. If you like the Wallflowers series, you'll enjoy this book for that aspect alone. But Nick and Lottie are great characters too, the sexy s...
