A different story, different characters, but the same, frequent sex that takes over half of the book. Same positions. Same desire for control.
In "A Fine Passion" the sex is less integral to the story -- she...more

I loved that Clarice was such a strong woman, and wasn't going to take no for an answer.
Jack won my heart over in the end as well, I wasn't to sure of him for the first few pages of the book, but once again Stephanie's writing won me over.
The 'adventure' these two went on had me at the edge...more
I liked how their dalliance mingled with the matters at hand. This story was rich in intrigue, unresolved family issues, and the going back to the ton, where both Jack and Cla...more

Characters: I loved Jack and Clarice as individuals - both were strong, witty and funny and could clearly hold their own. As a couple I loved their chemistry. In most similar novels there are usually two outcomes; Either the heroine is inexperienced and therefore dominated by the personality of the man, or she is so stubb...more
Buku ke4 seri Bastion Club.
Lebih terasa petualangan dan aksi mata matanya dibandingkan buku buku sebelumnya. Dimana mantan komandan Jack, Dalziel yg belum pensiun karena masih mengejar pengkhianat terakhir yg selama ini hanya praduga dan insting semata. Karena kasus yg ditangani Jack lah, sang mata mata bukan lagi hanya sosok dugaan.

Title? - This title is a bit less sexual than other titles in this series. It paints passion as something to be desired and respected, and not just sexual.
Character Analysis? - At the beginning I really didn't expect to like the book but I liked both the hero and...more
hhhmmm.. aku kasih bintang 4 bukan cuma karena ini SL loo.. tp karena aku jg suka sama ke2 karakternya XD
ya itu, Jack si hero nya sangat amat sabar, die tau cara dan trik ngadepin heroinya yg keras kepala dan tipe alpha abis, padahal jack jg tipe alpha lo..

I absolutely loved Jack [strong yet showed weaknesses at times; sexy and romantic, especially his proposal at the end] and I loved Clarice [very strong willed]. Together, they were a powerhouse couple. My onl...more
What a great story! I laughed and cried many times! Such wonderful writing and really engaging characters!! I love this authors work!!
I adore this whole series and can not wait to see each man get his lady. It is a bit formula with the alpha male who is often chased finding a lady he wants and being forced to pursue her. But formula works that why we love it!
Each book has an add but of i...more
Tapi nih buku hampir gw kasih bintang 2 lagi, krn setelah mereka dateng ke London, alur cerita sudah mulai monoton lagi, tiap bab pasti ada adegan mereka uhuk", bosen juga lama", trus konflik dgn nyokap tirinya kok ilang gitu aja, kurang gr...more

However the second half of the book was less enthralling, both regarding the romance and the investigation. The only things that added some interest to it was the action plan launched towards the evil wido...more
"Apparently, his body couldn't throb in two places simultaneously."
Took me a while to get used to Clarice, because she was such a strong character. I'm glad she stayed that way and it was interesting to watch the relationship develop and they ended up a team (for lack of a better word),so in the end It worked for me.
Usual formula used for this one as is used for nearly all of Laurens' books, but I'm finally just going with it. :-)
A historical novel of the 1800's, I appreciated the wit of the conversations of this book and the complicated way feelings were processed. The author is great at laying down the dilemmas of the characters amidst a conservative and yet scandalous British society after the war.
This is the story of Jack Warnefleet and Lady Clarice Altwood.
The story was okay and I did get through book but I found it slow to start with and the mystery was not one of Stephanie's best.
I did enjoy Jack and Clarice though and there were bits in the book that made good story.
I hope the next Bastion Club Book is better.
Once in London, Stephanie...more
