Now their leader faces that most dangerous mission of all: finding a bride. An interesting story all around as readers finally get answers to the questions they had about the mysterious Dalziel, spymaster and leader of the Bastion Club. So when the duke of Harlowe, the man who destroyed her brother and led to the downfall of her family, appears at the country house party she's attending, she does what any Wise Woman would do: She starts planning her revenge. Great story, voices wrong Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? I really enjoyed this book. Minerva was pretty decent too, given that she is nearly identical in form to all the other Bastion heroines. What more does he need? Yet, Royce thinks Minerva would be perfect as his wife despite the fact that she runs from him at every turn.
But she's still a must read for me, even if it's from the library. And of course, there's still the identity of the last traitor to be discovered. All six plus feet of it, larger and infinitely more powerful in life than even her fanciful imagination had painted him. . Regardless, dealing with his past was no longer the most urgent matter on his plate. I found it extremely painful to finish listening to Steven Crossley narrating the book.
The book is compelling and a super read! The entire book is focused on him convincing this lady to marry him. Admittedly, the last half definitely merits 4 stars so I'm giving, kind of under protest. Well, I was wrong to expect that. And it had so much potential. That home still meant what it always had.
I'd waited eagerly for this one, this last story in the Bastion Club series, bought it the day it came out had to go to 2 stores as it was sold out at the first , and eagerly devoured it. Royce will not be denied. Some days, cottages that need to be repaired. Each sphere hadn't just been dusted; every single one had been lovingly polished. His temper, like that of all Variseys, especially the males, was formidable, an emotion that carried the same cutting edge as their broadswords of long ago.
She's making him feel things he's never felt before. Finally, Laurens has a character she can really sink her writing chops into. Here was a character we have been reading about throughout the whole series. This is about Minerva and Royce Dalziel's real name. Even with the warning, I was surprised at how this subplot was handled. But to his father the position had been a disgrace to the name and title, a blot on the family estucheon; his old-fashioned views had labelled spying as without question dishonorable, even if one were spying on active military enemies.
And she has also unknowingly sparked Royce's lust. Ms Laurens is not the only author to succumb to this mistake. I'd have to compare it to other books written by Laurens. As the only son of a powerful ducal family and thus barred by long custom from serving in the field, when, at the tender age of twenty-two, hed been approached to create a network of English spies on foreign soil, hed leapt at the chance. The maids and even the footmen refuse to touch them for fear they'll fall apart in their hands.
Mastered By Love, eighth book in the Bastion Club series, is the long awaited story featuring the mysterious Dalziel, aka Royce Varisey. Instead the honors go to Minerva. It wasn't quite a return to the heights of Devil's Bride but it was up there. He'd acknowledged the well-meant words with a curt nod, left the post-horses to Milbourne's care, then remembered and paused to tell him that Henry-Milbourne's nephew-would be arriving shortly with Royce's own pair. Some of the techniques listed in Mastered By Love may require a sound knowledge of Hypnosis, users are advised to either leave those sections or must have a basic understanding of the subject before practicing them. I don't want him for her. Such as why his father had moved out of the duke's apartments immediately after their confrontation.
Disclaimer:A copy that has been read, but remains in clean condition. Does Dalziel get to save the day? Determined to claim her, he embarks on a seduction to prove his mastery over every inch of her body. Yet Penelope is anything but a pretty face in a satin gown: forceful, willful, and blunt to a fault, she has for years devoted her considerable energy and intelligence to caring for the forgotten orphans of London's sooty and seamier streets. However, cook Lately ruined for me by the narrator - he really cannot do women. Minerva was his equal in every way - in bed and out. Yet the young ladies the grandes dames would have him consider are predictably boring. I do not think I can finish it due to the narration.
