Book Description

15 Nov 2004 Bastion Club (Book 3)

Impatient to find his bride-to-be yet appalled by the damsels of the ton, Charles St Austell seeks refuge in his castle - and discovers Lady Penelope Selborne walking the deserted corridors at midnight. Years ago they'd consummated their youthful passion one unforgettable afternoon. While the ardent interlude still haunts Charles, Penny vowed never again to be seduced by the dashing earl.

But resisting a stronger, battle-hardened Charles proves difficult, and when a traitorous intrigue threatens them both, Penny discovers that her first love is her fated champion and protector - and will not rest until he has made her his own...

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellant. 16 May 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
A very good, fast paced romantic suspense. This is a follow on of the first Bastion Club novel i.e. same male characters and offshoot of the suspense plot that was set up in the earlier book. All Bastion Club members were former spies in the Penninsula Wars.

Charles St. Austell has his wife hunting interupted by the need to go back to his Cornish estate and follow up a French spying lead, as directed by his former spy-master, the enigmatic Dalziel. It is believed that the traitor was using local Cornish smugglers to take and receive secrets during the Napoleonic wars which have just ended.

On his first night back in his home, Charles discovers that his former lover, Lady Penelope Selborne has made herself at home in his house. She appears late that night dressed in male costume and has been out following her distant cousin who has been acting suspiciously.

Charles and Penny have not seen each other for thirteen years since she was sixteen. Charles had been her first (and only) lover and things had not gone so well. She was in love with him and was disallusioned when they made love, as she thought that on his part it was just lust and he didn't love her. She avoided him from that moment on. Confused by her behaviour and thinking that he had physically hurt her, Charles was then called up into his regiment, as he was a younger son and has not seen her since. His father and two brothers now dead, Charles has inherited the title.

Now seeing each other again, the attraction, and indeed love, is still there. However, Charles has been instructed to find the old spying network and Penny is deeply worried about her family.

4.0 out of 5 stars review of bastion club series 31 Oct 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
stephanie laurens writes well, slightly inclined to write very similar vocabulary and situations in each of the books but luckily she seems to get away with it. l bought the books as a regency romance which they are but unlike georgette heyer the ladies do not wait till they are married to let their partner have their wicked way! great fun and a good read.

4.0 out of 5 stars I Spy Love 23 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Review taken from my Blog Post #144 in August 2011, after borrowing the book from the local library:

After years as a spy in France Charles St Austell, Earl of Lostwithiel, returns to London and launches himself on to the marriage mart .... however he is quickly disillusioned by the sweet young misses and their mamas, and hies back off to Cornwall to work on a case for Dalziel.

Before he went into the army he had had spent an unforgettable afternoon with his childhood friend, Lady Penelope Selbourne, which has haunted him ever since.

His return finds Penelope still unmarried, and her mind has told her she wants nothing more to do with him ... her body on the other hand has very different ideas.

Will they get it together? ............ find out in this 4 star read.
