The seven members of the Bastion Club have served loyally in the perilous service of the Crown. Now they’ve banded together to support one another through their most dangerous mission of all: getting married.

When Charles St. Austell returns home to claim his title as earl, and to settle quickly on a suitable wife as well, he discovers that experience has made him impatient of the young ladies who vie for his attention—with the exception of Lady Penelope Selborne. Years ago, Charles and Penelope’s youthful ardor was consummated in an unforgettable afternoon. Charles is still haunted by their interlude, but Penny refuses to have anything more to do with him.

If controlling her heart was difficult before, resisting a stronger, battle-hardened Charles is well nigh impossible, yet Penelope has vowed she won’t make the same mistake twice, nor will she marry without love. But when a traitorous intrigue draws them together, then ultimately threatens them both—will Penny discover she has a true protector in Charles, her first and only love, who now vows to make her his own?

    " Charles and Penny have known each other since childhood, were close to each other's families, and were one time lovers. She's loved him for 13 years since before he left for the military and now with him back home as the earl and trying to uncover a mystery of a french spy in the area, they are spending lots of time together and are getting closer and closer. Murders happen, the culprit is unveiled and stopped, family pasts are cleared up, both find and admit to love this time, and they both increse their sexual knowledge. Good read!! "

    " Finished this the other night - starting to pick up the formula in these books now, but they're still good stories non the less. Will stick with them, as I want to read all the Bastion stories, then go back and read Dalziel's story, which is the one I started with and see what I make of the end of the series from that. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 11/21/2013

    " Although the "old" spy plot (not the current one, but the set-up for it) seems rather far-fetched and hard to believe it was sustained for about 40 years, I really loved Charles and Penny's relationship. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katie | 11/17/2013

    " The Bastion Club novels are set to be as exciting and romantically full-filling as the Cycnster series. Strong-willed heroines and sensual heroes make for an pleasurable evening read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel Rogers | 9/20/2013

    " I liked Penny and Charles quite a bit. As with the others the story went on a little too long, but was a fun read. I think the reason I enjoy these is that they are all about competent people, no fluttering unless it's specifically called for by circumstance. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carla | 6/14/2013

    " Spy story and romance. There was alot for me that wasn't adequately explained about the characters feelings and motivations, and the spy story was a bit far-fetched, but overall a fun escape read. More like a 2 1/2 stars. "

    " I really liked this heroine she keeps stopping in the middle of emotional entanglements to think about how she feels and what the future implications could be. That made me like her more despite it driving me demented to read it! "

    " I tried but at the end couldn't finish it. It was too long and I felt that it did drag as one review mentioned. At the end I felt that this novel was simply not for me. "

    " Out of Stephanie Laurens Bastion series so far I think this was my favorite. This was Charles St. Austell's story. I liked Penny's character alot. She was very much her own woman. I am hoping at some point that Laurens sees fit to give Dalziel his own book. "

    " I liked that Penny was a strong independent woman and that Charles knew that he wanted her and fought and campaigned for her. However, the story got too long and dragged on and on. They would eat, change investigate, finally have sex, then repeat the process. The book could have been shorter. "
