I enjoy the characters and the situations. I like getting to know more of the Bastion Club members as they play small roles in each book, helping each other out of the tough spots. What I don't understand, though, is how their club is helping ANY of the members for it's main purpose: helping each man to find a bride o ...more
I hereby declare that i’m going to practice abstinence, atleast for the next 12 months. My recent escapade has me retching. Constantly. For 3 days straight.
Hey fellow goodreader, stop your dirty mind from assuming things! I meant I’ll stop with reading historical romances for the next year and the reason for that decision and the puking would be this book. And the other books from this genre that I’ve read.
Word of advice- you can go back to rereading JA and finding similar bo...more
I so wanted to read about Tony Torrington and had great expectations for him. I was just so wrong.
To start with the positive things, I really liked the progressive discoveries behind the investigation of the smuggling/shipping mystery and the final scheme was rather unusual, very realistic and well created and hidden.
However the villain was so easy to identify;( I never could understand how the hero fell in love with the female lead, ...more
sebenernya ini buku aku baca dari desember, tp aku kelarin kemarn tgl 1, aku masukin 2011 aja deh..
again, heronya too good to be true!! konfliknya lebih ke menangkap mata2
untuk emosi para lead nya sendiri dr awal udah suka, sampe akhir jg ttp suka
paling pas bagian si hero nya ngira heroinnya janda, jd kaga ngaruh2 banget dan sudah tau passion itu apa, padahaaaallll... bukan janda hehehe :P
Within a few chapters, my mind had decided that Tony was going to be played by James Purefoy, for some reason. (view spoiler)[ (hide spoiler)] Since my mind had cast someone for Trentham in the last book as well, I just rolled with it. Maybe it'll keep it up and ...more
First "but" is the prose change for the sex scenes, as if written by a completely different author. Purple comes to mind. The writer of these sections doesn't seem to know how to use "and" properly. Words ending in "ly" abound, often more than one in a row. And the concept repetition in the same sentence, ugh. You have to read it to understand.
Second "but" is the "little misunderstanding" between the H and h - he has chosen her as his wi ...more

Alicia is the heroine. She pretends to be a widow so her younger sister can have a season in the Ton and find a good husband. This facade almost ...more
lagi-lagi juga penasaran ma buku aslinya -versi eng- apa iya setiap kalimat perlu pengulangan/penegasan. Mungkin maksudnya biar lebih ngena tapi kalo setiap kalimat jadi terganggu juga jadinya.
Terus apa emang SL ini hobinya bikin kalimat pendek2 yang cuma dipisah pake tanda baca (,) (;)? or cuma di buku ini? ^^?

A Gentleman's Honor is the second book in Laurens' "Bastion Club" series, about a group of noblemen during the Regency period who are prime targets on the ton marriage mart and yet are determined to pick their own wives instead of having young women foisted upon them by interfering mothers, grandmothers, aunts, sisters, etc. I read the first book in the series, too, and after finishing this one, I've come to a realization: Laurens doesn' ...more
A GENTLEMAN'S HONOR is the second book in the Bastion Club Series. The Bastion Club is the refugee of a group of men who have returned from war where they operated at spies. They have all determined that they need to marry and have decided to support one another in their quest.
This book is about Anthony Blake, Viscount Torrington (who appeared in the Bastion Club prequel CAPTAIN JACK'S WOMAN). Tony meets Alicia Carrington, a widow who is launching her younger ...more
First published: 2003
Length: 441 pages
Setting: London, 1816 (Regency).
Sex: Explicit. Frequent. Varied.
There's lots of sex in this book. Lots and lots of sex. From heavy snogging and foreplay we quickly proceed into more sex than story.
And yet the story isn't shortchanged.
"A Gentleman's Honor" is the epitome of this style of book. A good, well-written plot with heavy, explicit sex scenes appropriate to the story arc and relationship development.
But sometimes I miss a good ...more
Ugh my review just got erased.

Alicia the female protagonist pretended to be a widow of virtuous and impeccable breeding in order for her younger sister Adriana be introduced to the Ton and have a successful match in marriage. In truth they are orphaned and in destitute situation and have three more younger brothers who she wants to have a continued better education. It is understandab ...more
Tony and Alicia have great chemistry, and the lack of communication regarding his intent is actually pretty believable. She really nails the "swept up in the moment" of their romance without overdoing it. For m ...more

The romance was missing that spark for me. I wasn't convinced.
It's worth reading, but I prefer her Cynster series. I'm off to try book 3 and see if the Bastion Club series improves.
Another slightly boring Bastion Club novel (thankfully the next installments get better). Alicia a ...more
And I adore the Bastion Club men (and their women!).
But this re-read left me wanting to hit Tony with a clue-by-four. Alicia I can excuse (no older female relatives, working from book knowledge), but if he'd just said something! The villain is more unique than many HRs, and the various cameos were fun (*waves at Demon*), as was watching the Bastion Club members start to piece together Dalziel's identity.
I enjoyed Jill Tanner's rendition of this audiobo ...more
