February is I Love to Read month, and with Valentines Day falling this month, we must recommend a romance. A staff person enjoyed the historical romance Worth Any Price by Lisa Kleypas. It is the last book in the “Bow Street Runner “Series.
The setting is London 1839. The bow street runner Nick Gentry is a complicated man with a tortured history and Charlotte Howard is a woman hiding from a man who would ruin her. The plot includes a secret marriage of convenience, a shunned daughter, angry parents, and a cruel jilted lover.
This book has a fast paced plot, interesting characters, heated love scenes, and a great English setting. Many readers enjoy Historical Romance because they are light reading and it fit into a busy lifestyle. All branches of the library hold an assortment of romances, from historical to futuristic and fantasy.
