I loved the story of Royce and Minerva. The two knew each other years ago and she has always been ready to fall in love with him. Royce is struggling to find his way post Dalziel and trying to reconcile the life he had lived for sixteen years with his role of Duke. This book was different from the other books of the Bastion Club series. While Minerva was a strong woman and initially against the idea of marriage, she just wanted to be loved. I really appreciated how Royce acknowledges and respects her intellect and experience with the estate and world toward a partnership with Minerva.
I love books with strong, intelligent characters who don't do stupid things.
This book also resolves the ongoing traitor plot. I was happy that the mystery plot was less predominant here allowing the reader to get to know Minerva and Royce better. Readers of the series already know plenty about the final traitor, I was happy that we didn't get a rehash of the prior books.
This was my favorite of the series because I loved the characters and felt that this wrapped up the series nicely.
*** some spoilers ***
Typical of an SL novel, you have a hero who is inexplicably drawn to the heroine but could never tell her he loves her... Not until a life and death situation. Of course, that's the only way you will know you love somebody... When their lives are in danger.
Then after so many pages of trivia and introspection both for H and h, the traitor is conveniently unmasked by kidnapping h thereby revealing his identity. Really? A spy who has hidden his identity for years now decides to reveal himself? After callously killing people left and right during his time as a traitor, he decides to use rape and torture to exact his revenge while within a mile of the hero. H had already stopped looking for him, basically the traitor has gotten off scot free, so now he decides it's time for a revelation? Ugh. What a stupid scenario.
Compared to other SL novels, this book really falls short. I wouldn't recommend this book if it was half the price. Seriously, unless you just want closure since this is the last book of a series, this is so NOT worth it.
The men of the Bastion Club are powerful, loyal, and not averse to overcoming danger if they must. Now, after years of loyal service to the Crown, they each -- one by one -- must face that greatest danger of all ...love. Meet Royce “Dalziel” Varisey, 10th Duke of Wolverstone and Minerva Chesterton on their quest for love and marriage. This is the last book of the Bastion Club but Royce and Minerva are main characters in Laurens’ stories and are in many of her books.
I already had in Paperback and decided to get in Kindle also for more convenience.
