The seven members of the Bastion Club have served loyally in the perilous service of the Crown. Now they've banded together to support one another through their most dangerous mission of all: getting married.

When Charles St. Austell returns home to claim his title as earl, and to settle quickly on a suitable wife as well, he discovers that experience has made him impatient of the young ladies who vie for his attention – with the exception of Lady Penelope Selborne. Years ago, Charles and Penelope's youthful ardor was consummated in an unforgettable afternoon. Charles is still haunted by their interlude, but Penny refuses to have anything more to do with him.

If controlling her heart was difficult before, resisting a stronger, battle-hardened Charles is well nigh impossible, yet Penelope has vowed she won't make the same mistake twice, nor will she marry without love. But when a traitorous intrigue draws them together, then ultimately threatens them both – will Penny discover she has a true protector in Charles, her first and only love, who now vows to make her his own?

Over a career of Jazz, R&B and crossover recordings, husband and wife duo Tuck & Patti have produced a remarkable amount of music, especially considering that they rely on the textures of only guitar and voice. Having built their reputation on their sublime interpretations of classic songs from all genres, the duo again explores this approach, but this time with a little something extra: The addition of keyboardist and string arranger Frank Martin and cellist Joseph Herbert on four songs. Originally the recording was conceived as a special project intended for release only in Japan and Southeast Asia, however, soon after it was released everyone wanted a copy. "A Gift Of Love" covers album material made famous by the Drifters, Elvis Presley, Billy Joel, Minnie Riperton, Freddie Mercury and many more. Ten tracks in all.

Born in Stockholm on October 24, 1984, Stahl spent the majority of her preteen years in France, before returning to Sweden to finish schooling. Upon her graduation, Stahl found her way back to France, and met the people who would help make her a well-known name. Her debut album, A Fraction of You, was unveiled in the summer of 2006, and she followed the release with a number of performances, sharing stages with such artists as Erick Poirier, Ichiro Onoe, and Manuel Marches.

The first track “La Treizieme Revient…” (10:41) shows what we´ll find along the seven tracks this album contains: lots of minimalism, peaceful and delicate atmospheres created by synthesizers, harmless sounds, etc. In short: something closer to Phillip Glass than to progressive bands.
