©2005 Stephanie Laurens; (P)2008 Recorded Books
I think the authoress can write a good and gripping story, with lots of intrigue. It just a pity she fills out the pages with erotic sex, I have never felt the need to be a third in anyone's sexual encounter. I accept that sex sells books. When Listening, rather that reading and skipping pages, you are forced to endure long boring repetitive scenario that sound very familiar in all her books. If you can get passed the sex, the story is good and the characters believable, though a it racy for the time they are set it.
Story is good but narrator needs to learn how to say "grimaced" since the author uses it way too often. Listen at 1.5 speed and it's so much better.
"I love all Stephnie Laurens books"
I really enjoyed this book. She gave us a better understanding of Jack and who he is. I found it easy listening and set at a comfortable pace. Clarice was a wonderful character and hope to see more of her in the next few books.
I enjoyed reading this novel but listening to it was not nearly as enjoyable. The narrators voice ruined "James'" character for me. I would recommend this book as a "read only".
Narrative alright but wish she would have pronounced the word 'grimace' correctly..very irritating hearing it incorrectly spoken especially as it appears quite often in the text!!
"Not her best"
Definitively not Stephanie Laurens' best. Skip it.
I happen to love the books by Stephanie Laurens, especially the Bastion books. Her heroes are warriors and their mates are worthy of them.
"I married a man like this one!"

The men of the Bastion Club are second only to their erstwhile spy master.
I have read this series several times and still I am impressed with the imagination and skill that has gone into crafting this novel.
Jack Warnefleet was seriously concussed in the previous novel, the gets bowled over by the opinionated woman he meets upon coming across a near fatal carriage incident. Starts out with a bang and keeps moving along quickly.
Usual bouts of erotica (yes, the hormone spikes DO alleviate some nasty headaches. I know.).
Excellent read. If you haven't read it, you're missing out.
Jill Tanner does a good enough job, I just prefer that this series be done by a male voice.
