Book: Mastered by Love [Bastion Club Book 7]
Author: Stephanie Laurens
Genre: Romance - Historical
Review: The final installment in the Bastion club series follows Royce (previously known as Dalziel, the mastermind behind the British spy operations during the war). Now a duke, Royce returns to his family estate where he is pressured by the grand madam's of the ton to find a wife. He engages in an affair with Minerva, chatelaine of the castle and tries to convince her to marry him.
This book was a huge disappointment. While the main characters were interesting and made an engaging couple, there was little strife or side story to go along with the romance. In the previous Bastion Books, Royce is searching for a traitor and his story was finally resolved in this book-but it was almost an afterthought for Lauren's.
