More About the Author

The first romance stories Stephanie Laurens read were set against the backdrop of Regency England, and these continue to exert a special attraction for her. As an escape from the dry world of professional science, Stephanie started writing Regency romances. Her hobby quickly became a career when her novels about the masterful Cynster cousins captivated readers, making her one of the romance world's most beloved and popular authors. Currently living outside Melbourne, Australia with her husband and two cats, she has been writing historical romance novels for more than 20 years and is a New York Times, Publishers Weekly, Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestseller.

This is the middle romance in the latest "Bar Cynster" trilogy, following on from "Viscount Breckenridge To The Rescue and which is followed in turn by The Capture Of The Earl Of Glencrae (about to be published at the time of writing this review.)

Although the eponymous heroine of this book and her rescuer Jeremy Carling face some of the same challenges as her sister Heather Cynster and Viscount Breckenridge did in the previous volume, this definately isn't a carbon copy of that book. Because, just for once, Stephanie Laurens has created a rather different heroine and hero who react to one another in much more individual ways than the almost identikit heroes and heroines of most of the other "Bar Cynster" and "Bastion Club" novels.

This is not yet another novel in which the main story dynamic is a battle royal between a strong-minded heroine who is determined only to marry for love, which has to be openly declared to win her hand, and an almost equally strong-minded hero who wants to marry her and actually does love her but is most unwilling to admit the fact even to himself, let alone to her.

Indeed, at one point of the novel I had the distinct impression that Stephanie Laurens was poking fun at herself and the many other regency romance authors who are forever using that plot. The heroine and hero nearly lose their tempers with various relatives and friends (all heroes or heroines of previous Cynster or Bastion Club novels) who have completely failed to grasp what sort of relationship the hero and heroine of this book have.

I'm surprised by the very negative reviews for this novel. As a long time reader of Stephanie Laurens's books, I would agree that it isn't in the same league as the early Cynster stories. However, it is still well written and carefully crafted and much, much better than the majority of historical romances on the market. It is also a welcome return to form after the rather tedious Black Cobra series. I have enjoyed both of the books in this new series so far and am looking forward to reading the final instalment.

Or so it seems; since she had to borrow it from the last book she wrote. I have read all of Stephanie Laurens prior regency romance novels - she has written some 15 to 20 of them - so I do understand that coming up with engaging characters and interesting plots after so many is probably not easy. However, 'In Pursuit of Eliza Cynster' and the first book of the trilogy are so bad that it makes me think someone other than Stephanie has written them - or she has just totally run out of steam.

After reading all the negative reviews, I nearly didn't bother with this book, but I'm pleased I did!
At last, some main characters who aren't the usual romantic stereotypes but far more likeabe for it and HURRAY, a bloke who isn't afraid to admit he loves the girl (and say it out loud!!!), rather than the endless list of SL heroes who spend pages and pages resisting and denying the power of love (which they seem to think would show weakness but in reality is just annoying). The use of 'gushing' language is still overdone and distracts rather than adds to the story and if SL is throwing around all these place names, she really should've included a map in the book so you could at least follow the route along, but I enjoyed this story more than Viscount Breckenridge!
The bits about the mysterious laird are intriguing and I'm looking forward to the next book.

I agree that this seems like a rehash of Breckenridge. However, I did enjoy Jeremy's metamorphosis, and seeing Royce and Minerva again.

The best bit about the book though (and this is fairly damning) was learning about the "villain". I found myself skipping chunks of Jeremy and Eliza to get to the next sighting of him - he intrigued me. Therefore, I'm very much looking forward to the last book.

I'm glad I didn't buy this book though, and read it in a library. Good to have read it to know what's happening in the series, but not really one I'm going to add to my bookshelf.

Format: Paperback
I have read and also own all of Stephanie Lauren's novels, and was surprised to read so many negative reviews of this book. She writes romantic fiction and all her books follow the same plot, hero meets heroine and they find love while overcoming an evil plot. It is very similar to Viscount Brenkenridge, but in a trilogy about three sisters and a kidnapping Laird that it to be expected isn't it? SL developed the story in that we saw more of the Laird and his character, so it did move on. It is a typical SL novel, maybe not her best but there are a lot of awful romance novels out there. I have no issue with it gracing my bookshelf. Can't wait for the next one to arrive in the post.
