The Lady's Command by Stephanie Laurens

The Lady's Command by Stephanie Laurens

This is book 1 in the Adventurers Quartet.

Captain Declan Frobisher knew the moment that he laid eyes on Lady Edwina Delbraith that she would be his wife. What he didn't realize was that she had as big an adventurous spirit as his own. 

Upon learning that her husband was leaving on his ship to complete a job shortly after their wedding, Edwina did what she had to to set the tone for the rest of her marriage... she stowed away on his ship. What she didn't know was that her husband was on a secret mission for the crown.

Finding his wife aboard his ship was shocking to Declan, but he soon realized that she could be an asset to his mission.

Can these two accomplish their mission and become closer to each other in the process?

I really enjoyed this story, but I will say that I was disappointed that we didn't get to see the development of their love story. The story a few weeks after the marriage and we do learn a little about the courtship, but not enough to satisfy this romantic heart. I felt like this story was more of a mystery with a little bit of romance thrown in.  Not at all what I would normally expect from Laurens.

I was however very intrigued by the mystery that will span all four of the novels. What a way to keep the readers interested!!

While it is a very good and well written story, don't read it counting on getting your romance quota for the day...

It appears that the next story in the series will have more of the romance that I have come to love from Laurens. It will be out in April.

You can get this book at the following retailers:

Thanks go out to Harlequin for a copy of the book in exchange of an honest review.
