" I have been slowing down on reading Stephanie Laurens, since she has joined the writers who think frequent sentence fragmentation and unnecessary and additional paragraphs add something to the writing. As far as I can tell, it just makes the writing choppy. I wanted to at least finish the Bastion Club books before dropping her altogether, however. If you skip the sex scenes that add absolutely nothing to the plot and get very repetitive throughout the series (I regularly skip them in almost all books where they are obviously a digression from the story-line), the rest of the book isn't bad. Lady Letitia is meant to be an upper aristocrat and Stephanie Laurens pulls this off well. You can almost hear her regally proclaim as you read. Her male prototypes leave something to be desired, but then so do most female writer's males. Maybe it's something we just cannot get, although I find Jayne Ann Krentz's males to be totally and sometimes humorously believable, so it is evidently not impossible. "
