Book: To Distraction [The Bastion Club Book 5]
Author: Stephanie Laurens
Genre: Romance - Historical
Review: Searching for a suitable wife, ex-spy Viscount Deverell Paignton follows his aunt's advice and pursues Phoebe Malleson, a young woman with no interest in marriage. The weakest in the series, neither character is likable and the plot is boring. Phoebe actions are so out of character for someone with her history that I constantly found myself shaking my head (she was almost sexually assaulted years ago, never let anyone near her, yet within a short time she is trying to seduce Deverell..yeah, right).
