Bastion Club #5


TO DISTRACTION in hardcover will be a Main Selection for Rhapsody Book Club and a Featured Alternate for Doubleday Book Club. Their website is: www.rhapsodybookclub.com

"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

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.
