Captain Jack's Woman [Laurens]

Book: Captain Jack's Woman [Prequel to the Bastion Club series]
Author: Stephanie Laurens
Reading for Reading: we all need a little romance sometimes..
Genre: Romance - Historical

Review: A love story with a decent mystery, this book was hampered by unlikeable lead characters. Jack, an earl who is working undercover for his majesty, refuses to consider Kit (his lover) as a potential wife until he finds out her true heritage. He was stuffy, boring and arrogant. In terms of Kit, readers are supposed to believe she was able to masquerade as a boy for weeks with no one noticing (that was a stretch considering she talked to people in 'costume' and her voice could not have been that deep) and her poor decision making throughout the book did not speak highly for her intelligence.

Book Junkie's Grade: C
