Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Great job S Duerden"
    Any additional comments?

    I believe the narrator can add so much to the fondness of a book as I am sure most people do as well. The way this narrator lowers her voice to perform as a man actually helps her give the character a sexy sound. Loved the story especially since I have personally been involved in a similar circumstance. I believe Lisa did a great job showing the character's susceptibility and fears all the way. However, where she falls short is at the end trying to tidy all. Abusive men usually take the one they obcess about first and then their own. But I feel that did not take away from the story. I highly recommend this book.

    "Creepy Narrator.... Almost Ruined the book for me."
    What didn’t you like about Susan Duerden’s performance?

    Her voice for Nick is extremely creepy. I could hardly stand to listen to the rest of the book. Thought I would warn others before they bought this book. Great Story... Poor Narration. The end :)

    "Gotta love Lisa Kleypas!"

    The 3rd book in the Bow Street Runners series does not disappoint. This book is all about the relationship of Nick Gentry, reformed (or is he?) former thief taker and current Bow Street Runner, and Miss Charlotte Howard, on the run from the disgusting man that her parents promised her hand to. Full of romance, steamy sex scenes, fun dialog, and plot twists, I found this book really fun to listen to! I am so disappointed that there are no more stories in this series. Thanks to Lisa Kleypas for another fun historical romance.

    Story
    "Definitely Worth the Credit."
    What did you love best about Worth Any Price?

    I actually really like the back stories of both characters. Both having to live lives that were not of their own choice.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Loved Nick Gentry!!! 1860's Bad Boy with a heart of gold.
    ( Picture Richard Armitage in MI 5)


    Which character – as performed by Susan Duerden – was your favorite?

    Nick Gentry and
    his brother - in law - Sir Ross Cannon (From Lady Sophia's Lover)


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Nick revels his story to Charlotte. It was so moving.


    Any additional comments?

    This is Book 3 of the Kleypas's Series " Bow Street". A fantastic Series...
    Book 1 "Someone to Watch Over Me" ( which was not made into an audio book) was my favourite of the Series.
    Enjoy

    Story
    "Put this book on your 'Must Have" List!"

    One of my favorite reads, this story is the sequel to Lady Sophia's Lover, which I didn't know at the time I listened to it. It didn't matter: it is a superb "read". However, since Sophia's Lover is also a "must have" book, I'd listen to it first if you are new to the series. The characters are all strong and well developed, with several great sub-plots. Sophia, Sir Ross and the Bow Street Runners reappear, as well as the Earl of Westfall from earlier books. And then there are the dark, evil characters from Lotty's past which have to be dealt with. Nick's redemption, through Lotty's love, is wonderful, and actually believable. The sex scenes are gentle and funny, but HOT! As an historical novel, Kleypas does a terrific job of painting a picture of life in mid-1800's London. Susan Duerden is wonderful as a narrator, as always. You don't want to miss this series!

    "Narrator ruined the story for me"

    Just a personal preference but I found it very irritating that most of the story is told in a hushed/whispered/breathless voice. It did get better as it went and I can see how others may enjoy a breathy voice, for me it detracted from the story.

    Story
    "The editors'description of this book threw me off"

    I skipped over this one several times because the description sounded - frankly - yucky, but it's way off the mark. It turned out to be a fine read and one of the better narrations by Duerden - all the whispering doesn't bother me at all- and her male voices are better than some of her books. The book turned out to be a real delight, and once again there's no relation between the cover and the much more fun story that is told. Glad I risked it.

    "Well.."
    Where does Worth Any Price rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    ehhh.. its ok. I like the story line but I have read better.


    What did you like best about this story?

    the story line itself


    Would you be willing to try another one of Susan Duerden’s performances?

    No. I dont like her. Why is the guy she portrays always whispering? It was so annoying and I had to force myself not to stop listening.


    Any additional comments?

    Get a better performer like Natalie Ross!

    What made the experience of listening to Worth Any Price the most enjoyable?

    An excellent story. Set in a historical time period many have written about, the plot line itself is unlike anything I have read before. Kleypas has the skill necessary to pull off this uncommon story line and keep the romance alive throughout.
