Book: The Lady Chosen [The Bastion Club Book 1]
Author: Stephanie Laurens
Genre: Romance - Historical
Review: Returning from 10 years abroad as spies for the British government, seven aristocrats form the Bastion Club with the intent of helping each other find wives while avoiding the 'matchmaking mamas of the ton.' Tristan, Earl of Trentham, takes responsibility for setting up the club's residence and becomes intrigued by his next door neighbor Leonora. Tristan and Leonora team up to solve a mystery (involving neighborhood malfeasance) and find love along the way.
This was a quick, fun, read. The lead characters had strong personalities, humorous interactions (I laughed out loud a few times) and a good love story.
