The Reckless Bride

The Reckless Bride

Black Cobra Quartet bk 4

Stephanie Laurens

What do you get when you take a girl that has denied who she is her whole life, and the fourth son of a titled lord that has been in the army and served in India for his whole adult life and is on a dangerous mission where he has to act against his nature, which gave him the nickname of Reckless? A great story is what you get.

He races to complete their mission against escalating odds–his task made more perilous when he loses his heart.

She’s determined to defy convention and live a solitary life–until she tastes the reckless pleasure found only in his arms.

Drawn together by fate, united by fiery passion, they pursue their shared destiny…one they’ll live to see only if they unmask the Black Cobra.

This book gives us the conclusion of the Black Cobra Quartet where the crucial piece of evidence that is needed to see the end of the Black Cobra is in the hands of Rafe. Along the route he comes into contact with Loretta and her aunt as they travel back to London after traveling the Continent.

I enjoyed this book a lot as we got to see a different part of Europe than we normally get to see in regency romance. Rafe and Loretta were also a great couple. Rafe refusing to act on his growing feelings for Loretta because of who they both are, and also because of his mission, until they get to London and everything has been resolved.

Loretta of course being a woman that has finally come into her own, does what we do best and takes control of the situation, forcing Rafe to well man up about his feelings.

This book also gives us the conclusion of the Black Cobra and let me tell you when I got to the end well it wasn’t what I was expecting and yet it made complete sense. I thought it ended the whole series really well. Once I started to read it I couldn’t put it down and was completely caught up in the story. In fact I got several complaints from the men in my house about me ignoring them and only reading this book.

If you haven’t yet picked up this series in this reviewers humble opinion this is one of the best historical series, and you will not be disappointed.

    I like most historical series. There are very few that I read one and not want the rest of that series. I loved the Stephanie Laurens Bastion Club series and I am reading (one book at a time!) the Cynsters. I especially loved Julia Quinn’s Bridgertons and just about anything historical by Sabrina Jeffries;Christina Dodd and Julie Garwood. I also love the westerns by Linda Lael Miller and Jodi Thomas.

    Stephanie Laurens’ Bastion and Cynster series are probably my favorite historical series right now. I used to read a lot more historical books by Kleypas, Quick, Lindsey, etc, but I’ve run out of time for every author I like, so now I stick to the ones I love! I’ll catch up to the others eventually…

    i like stephanie laurens more recent novels-i’m not as fond of her older regencies. i was sad to see the bastion club end, but i was happy with how much attention was paid to the romance in ‘a gentleman’s honor’ and ‘mastered by love.’ i also love love LOVE ‘a secret love’!!! that’s probably my all time favorite historical. i hope she keeps writing such great books, and i’m sure this next one will be fantastic!
