Really, for an allegedly intelligent woman to bed a man - many times - and not worry AT ALL about pregnancy is amazing. Particularly since she is a major land owner and knows that the penalty of having a baby out of wedlock is total disgrace and banishment. Yet Madelaine and Gervaise never discuss this; apparently it doesn't enter their heads. Also for Madelaine not to realise Gervaise wants to marry her - honestly apart from having it emblazoned on his forehead he could not make it clearer. How come she doesn't see it when her family, his family and the locals all do? And she is supposed to be smart.

It's a good thing there is only one more in the Bastion Club series -- the repetitious story of the tall, handsome nobleman trying to win a reluctant woman (without any reason to be) is getting on my nerves.

The Bastian Club started well as a series and I looked forward to the latest installment. However, there's nothing new in this Lauren's title we've not seen before. Lauren's writes with a quick, lively pen, yet there's some depth lacking in her more recent works and I find myself prefering British Regency authors such as Kate Allan and Amanda Grange who combine the wit of the Regency with characters who really feel real.

I actually borrowed this one from the Library, but am pleased to find it as a Kindle download too, and no doubt at some point I will take the opportunity to download it.

Gervase Tregarth (6th Earl of Crowhurst) and Madelaine Gasgoine, independent and respected by all the local gentry and guardian of her brother's estate until he reaches his majority.

Continually brought back from London and disrupting his search for the Countess he requires, Gervase promises his sisters that he will agree to look at any local ladies, and decides that Madelaine has all the relevant attributes, and that he must get to know her better to decide if they might be compatible.

Quickly he discovers that they are in fact very compatible - and sets out to persuade Madeline of the fact.

A healthy does of smuggling, wrecking and two attempts to save her brothers and catch Dalziel's remaining traitor later, love wins out in this excellent continuation of the Bastion Club Series. As always Ms Lauren's tale is well written and enjoyable to read.

Loved the more mature and feisty heroine. The antics of the half sisters in getting the hero to see sense made me laugh. A good read.
