The Untamed Bride by Stephanie Laurens

New York Times bestselling author Stephanie Laurens presents a brash, bold new series.

They're battle-hardened, sinfully wealthy, completely unstoppable—and all male: Four officers of the Crown, fighting against a deadly foe known only as the Black Cobra.

He is a man who has faced peril without flinching, determined to fight for king and country.

She is a bold, beautiful woman with a scandalous past, destined to become an untamed bride.

Together they must vanquish the ruthless enemy, while confronting the dangers of the heart . . .

It might have taken me a few days, but I've finally finished The Untamed Bride - and it was great! It was a definitely a departure from some of her other works with its extended prologue and the death of a friend RIGHT in the beginning - significantly before you meet the heroine. But still, the elements that make a Laurens book such a joy to read are all still there. Strong male and female characters, interesting environments, and most importantly enough suspense and mystery to keep everyone happy. Rarely are books by Laurens just romances. You usually have action, suspense, adventure, mystery, etc. all wrapped up in the path to a happily ever after. That's what keeps her readers coming, the fact that it's not just the romance at the heart of the book, there is so much that goes on, especially in a series, that it's a lot of fun and an incredible journey.

Thanks again to Wiredset for sending me a copy to review!
