|A FINE PASSION
The 4th Bastion Club Novel
First published 2005
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.
The last of his line, Jack, Baron Warnefleet, had fled London after nearly being compromised into marrying a dreadful female. Turning his back on the entire notion of marriage, he rides home to the estate he has not seen for years, determined to set in motion an alternative course of action.
But then in the lane before his gate, Jack rescues a startlingly beautiful lady from a menacing, unmanageable horse. However, while he begins by taking command, the lady continues by taking it back. Lady Clarice Altwood is no meek and mild miss. She is the very antithesis of the woolly-headed young ladies Jack has rejected as not for him. Clarice is delectably attractive, beyond eligible, undeniably capable, and completely unforgettable. Why on earth is she rusticating in the country?
That enigma is compounded by mystery, and it's quickly clear that Clarice is in danger. Jack must use every ounce of his cunning and wit to protect this highly independent and richly passionate woman…who has so quickly stolen his heart.

"5 ROSES - HIGHEST RATING!
Stephanie Laurens' readers know what to expect - a well-written historical romance with excellent character development and a fast-paced plot. Ballroom to bedroom, Ms Laurens crafts her novels with an exquisite attention to detail and a warmth that invites the reader behind closed doors. Her Cynster series is the gold standard of this genre, and she has reached the same heights with the Bastion Club. A Fine Passion...contains all of the aspects that we require in a top-notch historical romance - and then provides even more substance. The characters linger long after the final page is reached and may prove to be the epitome of hero and heroine in this genre." Paula, A Romance Review.
4½ STARS! A TOP PICK!!
"With each tale of this series, Laurens reaches higher, perfectly merging excitement, suspense and sizzling passion. She knows how to set fire to the pages with a nonstop romance, placing her at the top of many readers' lists." Kathe Robin, Romantic Times
