    Stephanie Laurens(Author)

Unexpected love―plus passion, intrigue, and danger―challenge our hero to embrace his true nature.

#1 New York Times bestselling author Stephanie Laurens continues THE ADVENTURERS QUARTET, a riveting blend of Regency-era high seas adventure, a mystery shrouded in the heat of tropical jungles, and the passionate romances of four couples and their unexpected journeys into love.

After a decade of captaining diplomatic voyages for Frobisher Shipping, alongside covert missions for the Crown, Captain Robert Frobisher decides that establishing a home―with hearth and wife―should be his next challenge. But an unexpected mission intervenes. Although Robert sees himself as a conservative businessman-cum-diplomat and this mission is far from his usual sphere, it nevertheless falls within the scope of his abilities. As matters are urgent, he agrees to depart for West Africa forthwith.

To Robert, his way forward is clear: Get to Freetown, determine the location of a slavers’ camp, return to London with the information, and then proceed to find himself a wife.

Already in Freetown, Miss Aileen Hopkins is set on finding her younger brother Will, a naval lieutenant who has mysteriously disappeared. Find Will and rescue him; determined and resolute, Aileen is not about to allow anyone to turn her from her path.

But all too quickly, that path grows dark and dangerous. And then Robert Frobisher appears and attempts to divert her in more ways than one.

Accustomed to managing diplomats and bureaucrats, Robert discovers that manipulating a twenty-seven-year-old spinster lies outside his area of expertise. Prodded by an insistent need to protect Aileen, he realizes that joining forces with her is the surest path to meeting all the challenges before him―completing his mission, keeping her safe, and securing the woman he wants as his wife.

But the villains strike and disrupt their careful plans―leaving Robert and Aileen no choice but to attempt a last throw of the dice to complete his mission and further her brother’s rescue.

Review Text

  • By Regency Belle on 2 May 2016

    I had forgotten that I had pre-ordered this book. Given my previous review of the first book in the series, I almost didn't read it but felt that as it had been delivered to my Kindle I might as well give it a go.I always strive to be honest in my reviews and have to say at this point that I mostly enjoyed this book. The storyline is pacy and one can recognise the skill and writing flair of Ms Laurens, something that has been sadly missing in her recent books.The on-going saga of the Frobisher brothers and their missions to solve the riddle of an illegal diamond mine in Africa and the kidnapped slaves, used to mine the diamonds, is a good plot. Reading the synopsis, I immediately wanted to read about their romances and the adventures they experienced along the way,This book is a good read, the relationship between Robert and Aileen, rattles along and their adventures are told in a dramatic style. I far preferred them to the characters of Declan and Edwina and I can't wait to find out what happens next. I look forward, with anticipation to the next book in the series - the story of Caleb Frobisher.Yes, the obligatory sex scenes are still there, yes there's a lot of pseudo analysis of how and why the romantic characters are attracted to each other but they were easily skipped over. I don't dislike descriptions of sexual encounters (wow, try reading Kate Pearce) but there is still too many, overly descriptive paragraphs, harping on about their innermost thoughts and feelings.Why does Ms Lauren's concentrate so much on these aspects of her characters? I feel that her emphasis on how or why her main characters fall in love and consequently have sex is very heavy on the psycho-babble and lacks the romantic qualities we all want from our heroes and heroines.I am truly looking forward to the next two books in this series. At last, the message seems to be getting through to an author, who can truly write, exciting, interesting stories, which feature strong, dynamic lead characters, that what her loyal fans enjoy ( well this one does) are lovely, warm-hearted romances, laced with adventure.More of what we love please and what we long-time readers KNOW you can deliver Ms Laurens.

    The second book in this series, this is Robert's adventure. Following the clues to discover more information behind the disappearances first seen by Declan and Edwina from book one. With the help of Aileen Hopkins who is looking for her missing brother, the next leg is found before returning home to relay information. An exciting episode to be continued in the next book. I couldn't put it down until I had finished it. A good read.
