glad to finaly read dalziel story

Im glad to see the great reviews this got, after all the bad reviews to start with. I actually stared all over again with this series. After getting done I was very confused about the earlier reviews wondering if they read the right book. Never did dalziel meakly let the grand dames run his life or his decition who to marry, he just let them think they were. And as he had already made up his mind he egnored them. And as for the traiter you have to realise he is pretty much lost his mind. And I loved the sex sences. Great story, another laurens finish to a great series. And as you probly noticed I can't spell, and is why I don't write reviews, but with this one couldn't help it.

Great Ending to Bastion Club Series

I am an avid reader of Stephanie Laurens and shall continue to be after reading Mastered By Love. She does a great job of the characterization of Royce (aka Dalziel) and we really find out who he is (after getting glimpses of him throughout the series). The sparks fly between him and Minerva - as always Laurens delivers with her sensual love scenes. I highly recommend reading this book. It was a great ending to the Bastion Club series.

mastered by love

although i would have enjoyed a bit more intrigue and suspense throughout the story this novel is still a wonderful book. laurens shows such a beautiful command of the english language that you cannot help but appreciate this great read.the romance is also extremely passionate yet tasteful......

Very engrossing finale to the Bastion Club Series

I really enjoyed this finale to the Bastion Club Series. I was anxious to see how Dalziel would meet his fate - I mean bride - and he did it will a great deal of aplomb. Loved reading about the other characters, and I would have liked to see even more of them. Nevertheless, I loved Minerva and the fact that she was so practical, pragmatic, and so unfocused on a title or her beauty or appeal. It made for a fun read and if you are following the series, you can't be disappointed to read this right through to the final page.

And so it ends

The final capping novel to Ms. Laurens' bastion club series is a captivating read. Much like all of her heroes Rovce "Dalziel" Varisey is every bit an alpha male. Fortunately his heroine is as alpha as he is, even able to hide her attraction to the master spy from his keen eyes. And the irony of the man who sacrificed his family for the crown having the crown potenially destroy his legacy is not lost on the reader. As with ALL of the bastion club novels, there are steamy love scenes, Grande dames playing matchmaker (both Cynster ladies & another glimpse of Lady O who I hope will get her own story one day), Meddling family members(all of which seem to be more of a Varisey than our hero in that they don't buck the tradition), status reports on the other bastion club members, along with other friends of the master spy(I'm hoping we might get their stories as well) and of course our final traitor. While others may feel that the traitor gets too little to do in this novel, I feel he has stayed true to his character. The final traitor has in ALL of her novels been one who orchestrates & manipulates things how he wishes them. I don't believe he was ever meant to be more then someone behind the scenes playing puppet-master. And as Royce has made the decision to walk away (allowing his nemesis to "win" as he says), the focus of this novel should NOT have been as much on the intrigue as one the man behind the mask that was Dalziel & his lady. All in all, the novel was very satisfying and definately worthy of being the cappy novel of this series
