    Porn Lovers, this is it!

    After the first chapter, I had to hunt for any sentence or paragraph that told the story. I do not need a sex education and this book seemed to take lessons directly from the Karma Sutra (sp). Come on Steph, get back to good ole story telling; otherwise, I will not purchase anymore of your smut.

    Great Read!

    I started reading this book since the first book of the Black Cobra series came out. The first two books were very good ones but I do believe this book by far is the best one yet. The characters and action in this book are great. I love how Linnet is a strong female and knows what she wants and doesn't expect anyone to tell her other wise. And Logan is smart enough and is willing to love her for who she is. I couldn't put this book down. I am now looking forward to see how this series ends and can't wait for the next and final instalment.

    the brazen bride is bawdy

    I really love Stephanies' work, but I swear she is getting closer and closer to porn! I love her characters and plot lines.. she does not have to spend 4 pages very 50 pages or so in eroticism- if I wanted that I'd read Dara Joy. I hope the next and last of the Black Cobra that she remembers "the tale is the thing". In fairness, I will note for readers that there at 3 heavy sex scenes in the first section of the book, but when they start actually traveling..we get a STORY LINE!

    A Wild Ride

    After the "eh" read of "The Elusive Bride", I picked up "The Brazen Bride" with the attitude of "well, it's the next one - gotta read it". Boy, did my attitude change quickly! "The Brazen Bride" is a great read. The story was well-paced, the action scenes were exciting, and best of all, the characters were well-rounded, evenly matched, and HOT!! Linnet and Logan start strong and stay strong even as they figure out their relationship. I have to say that Linnet is my favorite heroine from Ms. Laurens since Amanda Cynster in "On A Wicked Night". Linnet has her home and her responsibilities and she's fully competent to tackle them all. And Logan is smart enough to let her. I loved their dynamic.
    As for the story arc of The Black Cobra, the enemy was more lethal and believable this time around.

    I eagerly await the final chapter of "The Reckless Bride" this fall.

    exciting Regency romantic suspense

    In 1822, Logan Monteith and three others fled Bombay using four different routes to reach England with information that will destroy a traitor to the Crown. Only one of the four has the genuine proof, but the Black Cobra Cult must go after each one as they have no way of knowing who carries the real evidence.

    Logan reaches Lisbon, a hot bed of Black Cobra Cult agents waiting for him. He manages to get on the Heloise Leger, a Portuguese merchant vessel bound for Portsmouth, but in the English Channel they run into trouble from the weather and from cult assassins.

    On Guernsey, another shipwreck leaves many dead with one survivor. Linnet Trevission takes in the amnesiac and heals his other injuries. He admires her courage and skills, but as his memory returns he knows he must complete the mission. However having been seen with Linnet by the Black Cobra assassins, he takes her with him as he travels to the estate of the Duke of Wolvestone.

    The late Regency romantic suspense story line is refreshed by having most of the adventure in England yet also contains constant exciting action as the tough yet seemingly inept Cult mount attack after attack. Fast-paced throughout, fans will enjoy this engaging Black Cobra entry as the lead couple is another delightful pairing of a brave man with a brazen woman.

    Highly recommended

    You get hooked from the start of the book. It is great to read of powerful unconventional women in a love story. You can not wait to read the next.

    Excellent!!!

    The Brazen Bride is the third book in the Black Cobra series.

    Logan is found washed up on the beach, shipwrecked, dreadfully wounded, and almost dead. Linnet nurses him back to health and agrees to help him complete his mission of getting to England with important evidence against the Black Cobra.

    Linnet is an amazing heroine, and manages to outshine the hero. The story is excellent and I will probably re-read the entire series at some point.

    BLAH!

    Very dissappointing read! Didn't even finish it. The only reason I read as much as I did was because I was bored in the school car-rider line! No story but plenty of meaningless sex scenes. Not one of her best and won't buy another by this author.

    Best of the Black Cobra Series Yet!

    I'm an avid Stephanie Laurens fan and have read and own all of her books. While it's hard to compete with the original Cynster novels, this book, the 3rd in the Black Cobra Series, is by far the closest competition to date. Her characters were vivid and distinct and the plot was surprising, even to this jaded reader who believed that the Black Cobra plot had the potential to become redundant. Her heroine, Linnet, is by far her strongest and most evocative since the female Cynster counsins. I would highly recommend this book whether you are a Laurens fan and are familiar with her work, or are reading her for the first time.

    Fabulous

    Ms Laurens always has strong women character who are unconventional for the time period, but this time she has far exceeded her norm... The characters and action in this book are great. I couldn't put it down. The entire series so far has been above my expectations. I can't wait for the last book. I think the latest book is fabulous!!!

    I'm looking forward to the next one!

    I've been enjoying Ms. Laurens writing for the past few years. I've read all the Cynster series and the Bastion Club and am truly thrilled that the Black Cobra Quartet ties those relationships together! While you don't have to have read all of the previous series to enjoy each individual story, it does add a deeper level of understanding to the relationships in each story.
    Thank you Ms Laurens.

    The Brazen Bride by Stephanie Laurens

    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.
