Laurens is in top form as the delectable men of the Bastion Club return in this tantalizing tale. She paints a fabulous portrait of the era, and her characters leap off the page and hold your interest as they're pulled into passion and the mystery that began in To Distraction.
To satisfy his three sisters, Gervase Tregarth, the Earl of Crowhurst, agrees to marry the first compatible woman he meets. But there are no suitable women in the area -- until he becomes reacquainted with Madeline Gascoigne.
As the guardian of her three younger brothers, Madeline has her hands full running the estate. But Gervase, who is an agent for the Crown, is intent upon bringing Madeline to his bed. After one kiss, desire soars, but the independent-minded lady is not going to fall into his arms. Then an old mystery resurfaces
