    They proved their bravery fighting for His Majesty’s Secret Service and were rewarded with brides of great beauty and breeding. But one member of the Bastion Club has remained a bachelor - until now. "Christian, I need your help. There is no one else I can turn to…L.” When Christian Allardyce, sixth Marquess of Dearne, reads those words, his world turns upside down. Lady Letitia Randall is a woman like no other, and the day he left her behind to fight for king and country was the most difficult of his life.

    What made the experience of listening to The Edge of Desire the most enjoyable?

    Finally Christian finds his lady! For me he was like the lost sheep throughout the series, Looking for something that wasn't there, wishing for something he couldn't have. I wanted to stand up and cheer when Christian and Lettica finally realized they COULD have it all.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the way Ms. Laurens weaves in the other members of the club, it's like getting together with old friends.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    This narrator drives me CRAZY! His feminine voices are so unbelievable. It's are though every sentence is a question. And every hero sounds so arrogant that I wonder why any woman would want to bother getting close to him. It's only because I like this series so much that I purchased the remaining books narrated by him. The publisher really needs to finds a new narrator for Ms. Laurens books. I'd not be so willing to spend money on another book I'm unfamiliar with if I saw he was the narrator.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    They had it all, just like Bogey and Bacall!!!!


    Any additional comments?

    I'm a sap for a good romance and Ms. Laurens is one of my favorite authors. I like the Bastion Club series in particular, I was somewhat sad to see it come to an end.

    Stephanie Laurens' hot-blooded romances, including her New York Times best-selling Bar Cynster series, have earned her legions of loyal devotees. The beginning of an exciting new saga, The Lady Chosen introduces the distinguished war veterans of the Bastion Club, single gentlemen not entirely committed to staying that way.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Lady Chosen to be better than the print version?

    Yes!!!!!! This is my favorite Bastion Club story, and I like Ms Tanner's readings.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The developing relationship between Tristan and Lenora.


    Have you listened to any of Jill Tanner’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was my first book with Ms. Tanner as narrator. I know she's not popular with some. I really like her voice. Mr Prebbles is good but I prefer Ms. Tanner.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Lenora realizes that she may lose Tristan unless she learns to trust.

    As the mysterious leader of the Bastion Club, known as “Dalziel,” Royce Varisey, tenth Duke of Wolverstone, served his country for decades, facing dangers untold. But as the holder of one of England’s most august noble titles, he must now take on the gravest duty of all: marriage. Yet the young ladies the grande dames would have him consider are predictably boring. Far more tempting is his castle’s willful and determinedly aloof chatelaine, Minerva Chesterton. Beneath her serene façade lies a woman of smoldering sensuality, one who will fill his days with comfort....

    What made the experience of listening to Mastered by Love the most enjoyable?

    I LOVE STEPHIE'S stories, but this narrator has got to go!!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Dalziel, because I waited thru 8 books to learn about him. He is the ultimate mystery man.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Steven Crossley’s performances?

    I love all of Stephanie's stories, especially the Bastion club series, and I probably will purchase the rest, (I already own 3 of them) but I do not look forward to another recitation by Mr. Crossley. I much prefer Jill Tanner or Simon Prebbles.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but I couldn't tolerate the narrator's voice.
