Laurens's writing shines."-Publishers Weekly"Laurens's delicious second Adventurers Quartet Regency romance introduces protagonists whose compatibility develops from their matched wits and bravery, making them charming collaborators. Capt. Robert Frobisher is envious of his brother Declan's happy life as a newlywed and decides that after he has completed the mission Declan began (in The Lady's Command), he will find himself a wife. Robert is certain that he doesn't want a woman like Declan's beloved Edwina, preferring someone less "forceful." However, on his mission to discover who is behind the disappearance of numerous adults and children, he runs across Aileen Hopkins. Robert's "inner diplomat" relents to "the buccaneer in him," and he finds himself drawn to Aileen's strong will and determination. Their romantic interest in each other, slow-brewed with the increasing tension of the mystery, is natural and credible, and their lovemaking scenes are simmering and sensual. The narrative's changing perspectives keep the story moving quickly. Laurens deftly balances action with dialogue and description, creating an intriguing and suspenseful novel that is equally effective whether read as a sequel or on it's own." -Publisher's Weekly, starred review"Stephanie Laurens never fails to entertain and charm her readers with vibrant plots, snappy dialogue and unforgettable characters." -Historical Romance Reviews"One of the most talented authors on the scene today...
