I sometimes get impatient with the whole "I can't be happy because of my tortured past" plot, and in this novel it applies to both the main charaters. That being said, Nick and Lottie are both likeable characters, the romance was steamy, and it was nice to see Ross and Sophia again!
I was really anticipating reading Book 3 of the Bow Street Runners series. The previous two had good story lines, although somewhat convoluted, and the two main characters had "chemistry".
Unfortunately, "Worth Any Price" had the most convoluted story line (a carryover from Book 2)and the "chemistry" amounted to numerous sex scenes (some of which seemed to be added on a whim and didn't advance the story a bit).
I am disappointed by this author because she has done much better.
