Técnicamente debería ser el adverbio "dearly" porque modifica el verbo "cost", pero a mi me parece bien idiomático decir "It'll cost you dear."

"This will cost you dear" or/ "dear, this will cost you"
are different from "this will cost you dearly".
The first two would traslante«cariña esto te costará.
The third is "esto te costará mucho"
