Stephanie Laurens, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the beloved Cynster novels, brings you THE ADVENTURERS QUARTET, a riveting blend of Regency-era high seas adventure, a mystery shrouded in the heat of tropical jungles, and the passionate romances of four couples and their unexpected journeys into love. Now together in one complete collection! The Lady’s Command Declan Frobisher, scion of a seafaring dynasty, is accustomed to getting his way. But his new bride, Lady Edwina Delbraith is unconventional and has a spine of steel. Bare weeks into their honeymoon, Declan is recruited to sail on a secret mission, and Edwina—naturally—declares she must accompany him. Facing unforeseen perils and unexpected enemies while battling to expose a dastardly scheme, Declan and Edwina discover that their tempestuous marriage demands something they both possess—bold and adventurous hearts. A Buccaneer at Heart When an urgent summons from the Crown arrives, Captain Robert Frobisher agrees to set sail for Freetown immediately. His covert mission is to locate a slavers’ camp and return to London with the information. Miss Aileen Hopkins is determined to find her brother, a naval lieutenant who has mysteriously disappeared, and she will not allow anyone to turn her from this dangerous path. Joining forces with Aileen, Robert vows to complete his task and secure the woman he wants as his wife. Compelled to protect the innocent and bring retribution to a heartless enemy, they plunge into the jungle with only each other to rely on, and the courage of their hearts as their guide. The Daredevil Snared Captain Caleb Frobisher, hedonistic youngest son of a seafaring dynasty, has something to prove. So he seizes the next leg of the covert mission his brothers are pursuing, and stays on to accomplish its ultimate goal. Katherine Fortescue fled a life of poverty and came to Freetown as a governess, only to be kidnapped and forced to oversee the child workforce at a mine. Guarded by mercenaries, the captives have lost all hope. Then Katherine meets Caleb—and he brings the sweet promise of rescue. Through the clashes that follow, he becomes the leader he was destined to be, and the sort of man Katherine can trust—with her body, with her life. With her love. Lord of the Privateers Royd Frobisher is set to execute the final stage of the rescue mission his brothers have begun. What he does not expect is to bring Isobel Carmichael, his childhood sweetheart, with him. Isobel has her own mission: to find and bring a young cousin safely home. Following a full-scale rescue-assault on the slavers’ compound deep in the jungle, Royd and Isobel discover that freeing the captives is only half the battle. To identify and convict the conspirators behind the illicit enterprise—and save England from political disaster—they must return to the ballrooms of the haut ton and hunt the villains on their home ground. But having found each other again, how much are Royd and Isobel willing to risk in the name of duty?

Can true love die? Or, neglected, does it lie dormant until the object of true desire is again within reach? Denied, does passion smolder, like embers waiting for the right conditions to flare into an all-consuming conflagration? #1 New York Times bestselling author Stephanie Laurens delivers the thrilling conclusion to her acclaimed series, THE ADVENTURERS QUARTET, a passionate Regency-era drama played out on the high seas and in the sweltering heat of tropical jungles, ultimately reaching a scintillating climax in the glittering ballrooms of Mayfair. The eldest of the Frobisher brothers and widely known as the lord of the privateers, Royd Frobisher expects to execute the final leg of the rescue mission his brothers have been pursuing. What he does not expect is to be pressured into taking his emotional nemesis, childhood sweetheart, ex-handfasted bride, and current business partner, Isobel Carmichael, with him. But is it Isobel doing the pressuring, or his own restless unfulfilled psyche? Resolute, determined, and an all but unstoppable force of nature, Isobel has a mission of her own—find her cousin Katherine and bring her safely home. And if, along the way, she can rid herself of the lingering dreams of a life with Royd that still haunt her, well and good. Neither expects the shock that awaits them as they set sail aboard Royd's ship, much less the new horizons that open before them as they call into London, then, armed with the necessary orders and all arrangements in place, embark on a full-scale rescue-assault on the mining compound buried in the jungle. Yet even with the support of his brothers and their ladies and, once rescued, all the ex-captives, Royd and Isobel discover that freeing the captives is only half the battle. In order to identify and convict the backers behind the illicit enterprise—and protect the government from catastrophic destabilization—they must return to the ballrooms of the haut ton, and with the help of a small army of supporters, hunt the villains on their home ground. But having found each other again, having glimpsed the heaven that could be theirs again, how much are they willing to risk in the name of duty? Learn the answer and revel in the action, drama, intrigue, and passion as the Frobishers—with help from Wolverstone, the Cynsters, and many familiar others—steer the adventure to a glorious end.
