    "Slow and Sensual"

    Lovely, well written emotional mystery/drama with sensual detail without being pornography. The regency period written the right way. The narrator is excellent. Vocal characterizations with distinctive expertize.

    "Smooth and Entertaining"

    This novel was just that novel and suprising. It kept you listening through the whole story not able to anticipate the changes in teh plot (which I generally do with ease). I loved it.

    "BORRRRRING!"

    Ms. Laurens just needed to get on with the story between Penelope and Charles. There was way too much of self thought and introspection. It drug on and on and on. Of course Jill Tanner isn't the best narrator either and perhaps this book would have been better had a different narrator read the story. I can't really recommend this book. I just thought it would never end.

    "It was alright"

    I love Stephanie Laurens and her Bastion Club novels but this one just dragged on i thought. did not hold my interest at times i just turned it off and came back to it later. no real "romance" and to me the plot was so-so. just not my cup of tea on this one

    "These Bastion Club novels are all the same..."
    Any additional comments?

    All Bastion Club novels were written using the same template... Once you listened to one of them, you listened to all. Too much sex, for my taste. All the men are tall, dark and handsome; all the heroines are so not into marriage... Yes, I do listen to romance novels to escape, but these are so unbelievable and unconvincing... Jill Tanner is a wonderful narrator and I love her voice, but even she cannot save this pseudo-literature.

    "another great mystery adventure."

    loved another of the Club's mystery adventure. Stephanie can take you away. I have a great drive to and from work listening to the story being acted out.

    Story
    "cookie cutter plot"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Only SL fans. I don't know why, if they have read any SL book, then this is more of the same.
    With the Bastian Club, SL has not even taken the time to have characters with different names, as there are 2 of the members called Jack. She has just given up on any attempt to be original. These are Cynsters by another name!


    What was most disappointing about Stephanie Laurens’s story?

    There was no reason to write this book. An author might want to tell a new story, explore a new theme or work through the issues of different characters. Why write the same book over and over again. It can't be rewarding.....unless you count the money.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jill Tanner?

    Rosalyn Landor. I think she should narrate every regency romance. Her voices, and the performance of the characters can't be beat.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    boredom, more boredom, and possible more..boredom. At least SL has taught me that you don't really have to use complete sentences to be an author.


    Any additional comments?

    There is no tension between the h/h. it's the same story, there is a strong male that wants to marry a reluctant female. He loves her, she loves him, but she denis her feelings. That does not stop her from falling into sexual situations every few chapters. The only thing the h/h don't seem to do is talk to each other like adults (SL does not know how to write dialogue). There is very little stopping them from coming together, but it takes 17 hours until it finally happens...wow, no real surprises here!

    "Really slow with TERRIBLE narration"

    I like Stephanie Laurens but I found even the sex scenes too drawn out in this book. And that narrator is truly wretched. It might have been her fault this was so bad.

    Story
    "Lovers and murder and diplomats, oh my"

    bastion-club, reread, traitor, treason, murder, historical-romance, england

    A Bastion Club novel, and all of them are good and each is different.
    Another romance novel, one where a misunderstanding years ago left each of them mistrusting the other (separated for many years until after Waterloo), but this one does have a real plot to keep you interested long after the gratuitous erotica has you yawning.
    Aside from the romance aspect, there are murders, traitorous activites found out, help from fellow ex spies, and a lot of speculation and action throughout. No spoilers. Just enjoy it.
    Jill Tanner does a pretty good job with this one.

    Great book. Long but not boring. The Bastion Club, in my opinion, is better then The Cynstets.
