Book 5 in the Bastion Club stories. I Really like Stephanie Lauren, because, usually, her women are always independent strong women and her men don't realize that they are the type of women they want and need until it's too late. However, in this one the man had to work hard to convince this lady that she wanted to marry him. I liked it!

A Bastion Club Novel - this one is about Deverell, and the one women who is "perfect" for him. He just has to win her one step at a time.

I'm a big fan of Ms. Laurens! I love her regency books! Particularly the "Bastian Club" series.

This book however, had me struggling to finish it. Way to long, almost 500 pages, and for me the only interesting part came at the end of the book with Dalziel's appearance. Our mystery man throughout the "Bastian Club" series and one we probably won't know about until the series finale. Overall, OK, just not her best IMHO. Enjoy!

Wonderfully romantic escapism novel. The Bastion Club is a group of English gentlemen returned from the wars with Napoleon who all must marry. They form the Bastion Club and buy a residence in which to meet and share info on prospective brides and which debutantes and managing future mothers-in-laws to avoid. Of course there are mysteries which lead them to meet women they most likely would never have met in Almack's Assembly Room. The struggle between strong willed men and women ensue with lots of torrid romance thrown in.

This book was not my favorite by this author. A little too much sex and not enough story for me. By the middle of the book, I started to enjoy it more but still felt like I just needed to finish since I don't like to leave books half-way read.

Fun story about a rake in need of a wife who actually takes his aunts advice and pursues one woman. His choice doesn't impress her, however, and he learns the value of effort. A fun escapade.

The gentlemen of the Bastion Club have proven their courage while fighting England's enemies, but nothing has prepared them for dealing with that most formidable of challenges: the opposite sex.

Deverell, Viscount Paignton, is in desperate need of a wife. Unmoved by the matchmaking herd, he seeks help from his aunt, who directs him to a lady she vows is perfect for him. Dispatched to a country house party to look the lady over, he discovers her not swanning about among the guests but with her nose buried in a book in the library.

Phoebe Malleson is tempted to distraction by Deverell, but marrying him isn't part of her plan. Moved by an incident in her past, Phoebe has a secret cause to which she's committed. Unfortunately, telling Deverell to go away doesn't work, and he quickly learns of her secret. But someone powerful has her cause targeted for destruction-and her in their sights. Phoebe must accept Deverell's helpthough the cost to them both might be dear-and deadly.

I had a very hard time getting through this book. I was bored, almost to tears, for the first hundred pages or so. After that things got a little better but I found it very long and drawn out without much to hold my attention. I am typically a person who can read most anything without wanting to quit before the end. It was close with this one as to whether I wanted to waste my time finishing it. I did finish this book and overall it was okay, if you like the Bastion Club books you'll want to read this one too.
