    Absolutely Riveting!

    This is, by far, the best Historical Romance novel I have EVER read! I picked this up on the discount table while traveling. I had never read anything by this author before. However, after the first few pages, I was totally hooked! I then realized that this particular title was #14 in Stephanie Laurens 'Bar Cynster' series.

    I am currently on a quest to read all 13 titles prior to this one. I also understand that there are, at least, 2 more books in this series after this one. And ...... if that is not exciting enough ..... there is also another series by this author called the 'Bastion Club' that contains about 8 titles to date. While I have not yet begun to read this series, it looks as if it were designed to intermingle and compliment the 'Bar Cynster' series.

    I am totally addicted to these books! The sensuality/romance aspect of these novels is done so very well (and tasteful) that there leaves very little to the imagination but at the same time creates anxiety to move on to the next one.

    While it is true that each book can stand alone, I highly recommend reading them in sequence to better build the character base once you are committed to completing the series. It's like a movie you don't want to see end!

    I recommend anything written by Stephanie Laurens to anyone interested in curling up with a good book that will keep your interest and have you eager for more.

    Very enjoyable

    In 1883 Charlie Morwellan knows as the Earl of Meredith he must wed an acceptable aristocrat to insure the family line has the heir and the spare. However he vows to marry under his terms and not that of the matchmaking matriarchs who make him feel like a piece of beef. His wife will be quiet and reserved with love never entering the equation as he will not emulate his late father and almost destroy their proud line.-------------------- Charlie chooses childhood friend Sarah Conningham as he knows she meets his prerequisite conditions of a wife. However, Sarah insists, unlike Charlie, she will only marry a man she loves even if that means becoming a spinster. She believes Charlie loves her though he denies that and she admits to herself she has always loved him. As he pretends to not care for her, an unscrupulous speculator has plans for Sarah¿s land, which means this rogue has a scheme to make her property his anyway he can.----------------- The latest Cynster tale contains two interesting lead characters especially the return of Charlie (see A SECRET LOVE) their disagreement over love makes their courtship fun though resolved too easily especially as this is the prime theme of this historical romance. The story line is fast-paced especially when the villain sets in motion his plan. However too many Cynsters (multiplied faster than rabbits) make cameo appearances slowing down and unnecessarily extending the plot. Still fans of the series will want to read the latest entry.----------------- Harriet Klausner
