"Guaranteed to please. TO DISTRACTION dazzles with red-hot chemistry that heats up the pages. Team that with a suprise villain and ending, and readers will have a difficult wait for the next in the series." Suan Wilson, FreshFiction.com

Sensual, compelling and highly entertaining." Library Journal

"TO DISTRACTION had me enraptured until the end." Romance Junkies

"Sensual, romantic and engaging, TO DISTRACTION is a delight. For those who enjoy full, sizzling tales of bold heroines and the heroes strong enough to support them rather than take over a woman's life, I highly recommend TO DISTRACTION." Terrie Figueroa, Romance Reviews Today

"Aptly titled, Laurens's latest generates enough heat to make you forget about sticky summertime weather." Publishers Weekly

<TABLE width="100%"><TBODY><TR vAlign=top align=left><TD width="78%" height=172>The gentlemen of the Bastion Club have proved their courage while fighting England's enemies, but nothing has prepared them for dealing with that most formidable of challenges: the opposite sex.

Deverell, Viscount Paignton, is in desperate need of a wife. Unmoved by the matchmaking 'herd', he seeks help from his aunt, who directs him to a lady she vows is perfect for him. Dispatched to a country house party to look the lady over, he discovers her not swanning about among the guests but with her nose buried in a book in the library.

Phoebe Malleson is tempted to distraction by Deverell, but marrying him isn't part of her plan. Moved by an incident in her past, Phoebe has a secret cause to which she's committed. Unfortunately, telling Deverell to go away doesn't work, and he quickly learns of her secret. But someone powerful has her cause targeted for destruction - and her in their sights. Phoebe must accept Deverell's help... though the cost to them both might be dear - and deadly.

ON SALE 28th AUGUST 2007

[U]READ EXCERPT (http://www.stephanielaurens.com/Bastions/06BeyondSeduction.htm#)

<TABLE width="100%"><TBODY><TR vAlign=top align=left><TD width="78%" height=172>A little bit wild and undeniably brave, the gentlemen of the Bastion Club have pursued adventures far and wide. But their expoloits at home could prove to be the riskiest of all as they hunt an elusive target: the perfect bride.

In a moment of recklessness, Gervase Tregarth, 6th Earl of Crowhurst, swears he'll marry the next eligible lady to cross his path. Cloistered at his ancestral castle in Cornwall, with nary a suitable woman for miles, he never expects he'll have to fulfill his pledge, at least not until the London Season begins. But then he meets his neighbor, the very appealing Madeline Gascoigne.

Years of secret service to the Crown have taught Gervase the value of always having a loophole - there will be no wedding if he and Madeline are not compatible in every way. So he sets out to prove that they would make a most dreadful match... by luring her into his arms and, ultimately, his bed. From their very first kiss, Gervase discovers that the headstrong and independent Madeline is no meek country miss... and that the fire between them will burn long beyond that first seduction.

Just a bit more than a month away for Lauren's books! Love hers too! My first of hers was CAPTAIN JACK'S WOMAN. That was set mostly near the waters and really a great dark feel book but too so good!

I found her books with Devil's Bride...the first in the Cynster novels! I have had this partiular book so long that the book is warped and the backing is not readable. But i do read it over and over again!
