THE RECKLESS BRIDE by Stephanie Laurens is a historical romance set in 1822 India and England. It is the fourth in The Black Cobra Quartet (Book One, The Untamed Bride,Book Two, The Elusive Bride, Book Three, The Brazen Bride) but can be read as a stand alone. It is well written with details and depths. First, let me say I so enjoy this author’s writing. To that, let me say I thought this was a little slow to begin with. It seemed to have more of another plot, than the others and less of the The Black Cobra plot.Saying that it has a successful conclusion to The Black Cobra Quartet Series. It has adventure, romance, sensuality, passion, vengeance, suspense, intrigue, suspense and the ending to the dreaded traitorous fiend The Black Cobra. The fourth of the brave,determined ex-officers of the Crown,Rafe,is trying to get the last piece of the puzzle of who the Black Cobra really is into the right hands and avenge his fallen comrade, James. The other three have landed in England. In the meantime, Rafe, meets the lovely Loretta, who is traveling with her aunt throughout Europe. Together, they battle cultists and someone out to kill her aunt. Loretta, is determined to deny convention and not fall in love or marry but enters Rafe. They will meet their destinies together. If you enjoy mystery, suspense, intrigue and adventure you will enjoy this one. Although, I enjoyed the other three better, this one seemed to engage more in another plot concerning Loretta and her Aunt instead of The Black Cobra affair. I would still recommend this one, but beware, the conclusion to The Black Cobra Quartet is not toward the first of the book. This book was received from Net Galley for review and details can be found at Avon,An imprint of HarperCollins Publishers.
