A mistress cannot marry for love...
As one of the famous Preece sisters, Kitty is the most sought-after courtesan in London. But with the vicious Duke of Gillingham scaring away any man who looks her way, securing a new arrangement with a wealthy gentleman will be no easy feat. Kitty's only hope to find someone suitable is through her loyal and cherished friend, the Reverend Sidney Wakefield.
Sidney has devoted his life to the church, but it was never by choice. He is a writer and Kitty his muse. As he is roped into Kitty's plotting, he begins to realise that protecting her from the malevolent Duke comes at a price - and it might mean losing Kitty to someone else entirely.
As Kitty and Sidney try to find a way out, it becomes clear that years of friendship have developed into something deeper. Except that they are from different worlds and Kitty's heart has never been hers to give away...

Another brilliant, steamy romance from the pen of Felicity George, a wonderful new voice in romantic fiction. I thoroughly enjoyed her debut novel, A Lady’s Risk, and eagerly awaited her second. It didn’t disappoint. Felicity has a gift for historically accurate story telling that sweeps the reader along, immersing them in the glorious sights, sounds and smells of Regency London. I love the way she breathes life into her meticulously crafted characters, carefully revealing every facet of their nature with each turn of the page. I sighed and cried with the joyous Sidney Wakefield, humble curate and helpless romantic, in love with the beautiful Kitty Preece, the most highly paid, sought after courtesan in London as he tries to rescue her from the clutches of the wealthy, powerful Duke of Gillingham (boo, hiss) who wants to be Kittty’s next keeper. In order to win Kitty, Sidney must also grapple with Kitty’s sister, the redoubtable, wonderfully portrayed Matilda and overcome the iron will of Lady Eden, his selfish mother. No sooner had I breathed a sigh of relief that Sidney and Kitty looked set to find happiness together, events took a sinister turn in this wonderful, rollercoaster romance that kept on delivering right to the end. I would like to extend my thanks to Orion Dash for selecting me to review a copy of A Courtesan's Worth on NetGalley.
