The third volume of the Black Cobra Quartet is nothing short of incredible!

The Brazn Bride by Stephanie Laurens

Submitted by hcabm on July 2, 2010 - 6:52am.

The Brazen Bride is a wonderful addition to the Black Cobra series. It is the third book in the series.

In this installment we get better acquainted with Major Logan as he races to complete his part of the mission.. He and his friends are posing as couriers . Their task is to help draw out and kill as many of the Black Cobra cultists as they can and behead the person or persons at the head of the organization.

This is not an easy task . Logan in a fight with the cultist aboard a ship finds himself going down with the ship. He lands unconscious and injured on the coast of a small place called Mon Coeur, Torteval , Guernsey. He is rescued by a woman called Linnet and her wards.

This is where the book really captures my interest. The heroine is feisty and strong and a surprise to Logan.
Surprising for a man in this time period, he is not put off by her behavior but is accepting and admiring.

Once Logan regains his memory it is imperative that he continue on his mission and Linnet helps in an unexpected way.

It is a thrilling and adventurous ride.

I applaud the author for her strong characterizations of women and the men that love them.

I am panting for the last book in Black Cobra series.
