Image of Worth Everything (Worth It)

It’s heartbreaking how callous the families are in this story, and it seems a far stretch considering that some of the people, such as Stasia’s own mother, should want to support her. Gavin seems to be the only one willing to learn the truth about her claims, yet he hides that attribute behind his cynical views of the wealthy and a workaholic attitude. Gavin and Stasia have an excellent balance between incredibly sexy — they are so hot — and serious; Gavin is smart, Stasia is no wallflower and their romance enhances the storyline of finding a family to which one belongs. Secondary characters make up a strong, loving support network while showing the value of fighting for your dreams.

Upon the death of her father, Stasia Renaldi learns the shocking truth that her mother once had an affair. Now she’s being stripped of the Renaldi name, and everyone she once considered family has abandoned her while they come to grips with this revelation. Once over the initial shock, Stasia tries to make contact with her new family, the Worth brothers, only to be denied because they are convinced she only wants their money. As a last resort she hires sexy attorney Gavin Westmore to help her gain access to her biological family and convince them of her true intentions. Stasia and Gavin cross the line from professional to personal very quickly, with things getting more complicated as blazing passion flares into something more. (SAMHAIN, Feb., 232 pp., $14.00)
