I'm giving this one 4 stars but that might be a little generous because though I did enjoy this one uite a bit there were still some things I didn't likeChristian is the last remaining bachelor of the Bastion Club a group he and he friends formed so that they could find wives THEY wanted not who they got pushed with Like the others he wants to marry but his heart still belongs to the woman he loved and lost years before She'd broken his heart and was unreachable Until he receives a dire message from Letitia She desperately needs his help Her husband has been murdered and her brother stands accused Though he knows he should stay away from her he's helpless when it comes to her But as he spends time with her working on her husband's murder he learns that things from the past aren't all that they seem And he also learns that the passion and love that existed between them so long ago is anything but dead The only problems are convincing Letitia to believe in a future for them and finding out who really murdered her husbandLike the other Bastion Club books this one has got a decent mix of romance and moderately suspenseful plot Though I'll admit I thought the other books has a better plot than this one which seemed a bit predictable and obvious I knew pretty much what was going to happen and there weren't any surprises at all with the plot resolution But the story was still interesting enough to keep me readingRomance wiseI did enjoy Christian and Letitia a lot There's an obvious chemistry between them And their backstory adds a nice reunion element Laurens did a great job of conveying the emotions of the characters and making me believe in them as a coupleOne of my complaints though A little too much sex in the book There just seemed to me to be a lot of sex scenesor maybe it was the fact that some of the scenes were really long There was one that was approximately 15 pages I counted and halfway through I was bored to tears and just wanted them to get on with it It made the book drag a bit at times And it just wasn't necessaryAnother small uibble I had was the constant references to the Vaux family and their notorious reputation for being histrionic emotional etc I couldn't count the number of times there were statements like being a Vaux and everybody knew about them and I was just like okay I got it the first 10 times it was said No need to repeat itSo yeah though this was mostly an enjoyable book it had some issues It was a pretty good edition to the series I think if you've been reading the series you'll probably like it The epilogue though Super frustrating Why If you've been reading the series you know about the mysterious Dalzielwell the epilogue is basically an intro to his story which whets your appetiteand then you see that his book won't be out until Fall 2009 Almost a whole year away I don't want to wait that long LOL It should be an interesting story though

The Edge of DesireDe down Lady Letitia Randall is a woman like no other and the day he left her behind to fight for king and country was the most difficult of his life He never forgot the feel of her lips against his but never expects to see her again Yet now she seeks his help and Christian knows he will not resist her pleaLetitia believes that Christian a. The heroine was a haughty conceited and unpleasant posh Completely unlikableMoreover the author kept the mystery behind her marriage to another man while secretly betrothed to Christian for over 110 pages 13rd of the book and that definitely killed all feelings I might have had for her if I had learnt all beforeI hated how she ordered him around without giving him the tenth of the information he needed to pursue the investigation Honestly in those conditions I would have simply refused to help her But on page 30 something the hero wondered what sort of self flagellating moron he was I wondered too And kept wondering that until the end of the bookI deeply dislike when one member of one couple is completely dominated mentally by the other and behaves like a puppy That's the case here and the reason why I did not enjoy this bookOtherwise the investigation behind the mysterious previous husband and his business ventures was really interesting
