No. 12 Montrose Place is to be the last bastion for Tristin Wemyss, Earl of Trentham, and his fellow secret agents. Tristin volunteers to oversee the renovations, and though he knows lust and a virtuous woman never mix, he finds himself entranced with his neighbor, Leonora Carling. When he discovers the lady snooping around the house he's intrigued.

Ever since Leonora refused an offer to sell their home, her family has been subjected to harassment. She suspects that the new owner of No. 12 might be responsible, but as soon as she meets Tristin she knows he's not the culprit. Tristin decides to investigate Leonora's situation and get to know the lady better. As they embark on solving the mystery, they get caught up in a highly passionate affair. But when Leonora refuses Tristin's offer of marriage, he must not only find the brigand, but also wage a campaign to win the lady's heart.

Now that the Cynsters are all settled, Laurens turns to the Bastion Club. With her hallmark extreme sensuality, knowledge of the era and delightful plotting, this is another exceptionally entertaining romance.

I was very disappointed in this book. The first I had read by this author. It was a mystery/romance. I felt like it was never really a good romance or a good mystery. It took 438 out of 440 pages to solve the mystery and the romance never really sparked.

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 is superb! I'm KEEPING this one. :)

It's the first I've read by this author and I can't wait to get the next in the series. Well-written, excellent story, and well-defined characters.

I have just recently read this book after having read someof the later Bastion Club novels. I loved reading about the Bastion Club coming into existence and learning the history of some of the fellow members. A great read in my book.
