Format: Mass Market Paperback
In 1811, Katherine "Kit" Cramer, sick of the marriage mart of the Ton and the machinations of some of her relatives, moves to Norfolk to spend time with her beloved grandfather. Before long, Kit becomes the leader of the local smuggling ring, whose members think she is just a brilliant, intrepid lad. At the same time, working for Whitehall, Lord Jonathan Hendon reprises his old war persona of "Captain Jack" so he can become the leader of the Hunstanton smuggling gang.

The first evening that Jack meets the disguised Kit on the smuggler's beach, he quickly realizes that the charismatic leader of the rival gang is a woman, not the youthful lad that everyone else thinks she is. He finds her mysterious and alluring, and decides to expedite her from her nocturnal activities on the shore so that she can share his bed as his mistress. She thrives on her secret role and would never give it up, especially for a man, even if he stimulates her blood and is the most exciting person she ever met. What happens when these two highly spirited, adventurous beings continue to have their worlds collide? A love match ensues, but will the twosome stop their bickering long enough to
allow a lifetime relationship to grow?

CAPTAIN JACK'S WOMAN is an erotic, passionate, and action-packed historical romance that will thrill readers of the sub-genre. The lead protagonists are a wonderful pair filled with flaws that make them seem human, and the support cast adds a wild bunch type element to the tale. Stephanie Laurens scores big time with this sizzling romantic thriller that has this reviewer's highest
recommendation.

For those of you who despair at the fact that Stephanie Laurens Cynster heros are perfect, here she has created a hero who is flawed, and must face that by the end of the novel. Kit is a delight as a heroine, though she does shift halfway through the novel into something a little more tame, moving her passion from adventure to perfecting her husband. This was a great read. Not as good as the Cynster series, but still a well written and adventurous tale.

The story started off interesting with Kit masquerading as a leader of a gang of smugglers and her escapades challenging Captain Jack and gang. However, the story sort of went flat after Kit succumbing to Jack's charm. She loses her adventurous spirit. It was not surprising that after the marriage, she was like another person. Everything became too predictable at the end and I almost could not finish reading the book. Erotic and passionate - Yes, but not exciting enough to maintain the thrill throughout.

Format: Paperback
This book is the prequel to the "Bastion Club" romances, and, despite also being the most nonsensical, is also far and away the most entertaining of the nine books in the series.

In fact it is jointly (with Four in Hand) my favourite Stephanie Laurens book.

The Bastion Club series starts immediately after the battle of Waterloo, as described in "The Lady Chosen: Bastion Club Series, Book 1," as seven officers who have served Britain during the Napoleonic wars, first in the guards and latterly as spies, agree to support one another in time of peace. And particularly, as most of them need to marry, they found the Bastion Club as a place where they can meet away from the "matchmaking mamas" of the Ton and ensure that each has the best chance of finding the wife who is right for him, not some simpering miss thrown at him by society.

In the that book and the following six, all set between 1815 and 1816, each of the seven Bastion Club members finds his bride, as follows:

1) The Lady Chosen, Tristan Wemyss and Leonora Carling
2) A Gentleman's Honor, Tony Blake and Alicia "Carrington"
3) A Lady of His Own (Bastion Club), Charles St Austell and Penelope Selborne
4)

I really enjoyed this well written fast paced book. I thought all the characters in this story interesting, not just the lovers Jack and Kit. I also got the impression that these two adventurous souls were meant to be together. They were going to meet and marry it was only a question of when. It just so happens they meet with blades drawn. It's wonderful romp, this book is a definite keeper. After my 25 years of romance reading Stephanie Laurens is a wonderful new voice.

Format: Paperback
The book starts out well, with a good idea, strong characters and plot. Then the plot ends up drowned under the sexual relations of the hero and heroine, and the characters weaken. The sex scenes are very well written, but the hero becomes a dominating bully with little character, and the heroine, the strongest character at the beginning of the book, becomes a doormat, mindlessly serving the sexual needs of the hero. The last quarter of the book ends up promoting this dominant-submissive relationship before an unsatisfying conclusion in which neither of the characters shows any signs of growth. Other books by the same author have been charming, and I finished them with a smile on my face (why else read romances but for the happy ending?) This book left me feeling weak, and angry.
