From the Back Cover

USA Today bestselling author Stephanie Laurens adds a dynamic, sweeping tale to her extraordinary adventures.

They're bold, courageous, resolute . . . ex-officers of the Crown united against a deadly traitor known only as the Black Cobra.

Shipwrecked, wounded, he risks all to pursue his mission—only to discover a partner as daring and brazen as he.

Fiery, tempestuous, a queen in her own realm, she rescues a warrior—only to find her heart under siege.

Bound by passion, linked by need, together they must brave the enemy's gauntlet to win all their hearts' desire.

ok I have been a fan of stephane laurens for a long time and I went ahead and pre ordered this book admist all the shafting by publishing houses of e book owners regarding pricing of books. And because I paid a decent amount for this book, I tried to finish it, I really did. The characters of Linnet and Logan were promising but Logan was sadly underdeveloped and constantly listening to Linnet's repetitive musings on should they be together, shouldnt they, etc. got to be truly annoying. The story itself is boring. It started out well enough with a shipwreck and the memory loss but Linnet giving it up to some unknown "unconscious" stranger the very night he washes up on shore was ridiculous. Once they left the island, the story goes downhill from there. I am a speed reader and could have easily got through this romance in a few hours of continous reading but I have had this book for almost a week and the only reason I keep trying to pick it up is that I remember that I paid for it. I have read free or much more inexspensive books that were better than this. I am very disappointed.

I've been a fan of Laurens' work up until the Black Cobra series. I thought the first book might just be off, but all three have been.

Her writing.

Confusing.

Wanting.

Left something to be desired.

I'm fine with a re-hashed plot with new characters when I'm not looking for serious reading. I'm not fine when I start to wonder if the author is being paid by each sentence or fragment when the writing itself gets downright distracting.

I'm especially unhappy when yet another "steamy" scene starts, and it's just really not even worth reading. I started flipping past them halfway through the book. They don't help the plot move along, and frankly, they are boring. When you can't even make the "steamy" interesting, you're in trouble.

... to Stephanie Laurens ?? where is the author of "Devil's Bride" and all the other wonderful books from the Cynster series ???
this book is totally ridiculous ! the percentage of "steamy pages" is ridiculous! Although a trade mark of SL I feel that the author is using sex to fill the pages!
The comparison between the heroine and Queen Elizabeth is...ridiculous!!!!!!!!
I find the heroine a bad copy of Catriona Hennessy (Sandal's Bride).
I'm a huge fan of SL but I've been totally disappointed with her last books!
It is being difficult to finish this one!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The Brazen Bride is aptly named, for this heroine is brazen, in fact, she is more than Brazen, she definitely has an ego that more than matches any alpha male I've read about in a very long time. I don't mind a strong heroine, but the leading lady thinks of herself on par with Queen Elizabeth.

Linnet Trevission discovers hero Logan Monteith washed ashore on her Guernsey Island estate. He is unconscious with a terrible slash on his side, and a saber, dirk and a canister tied to his back, when he awakens Logan remembers his name but nothing of his personal life.

Linnet is not your average Regency miss, firstly she is a land owner, who has taken lovers and has decided she will play by no man's rules. She is supremely confident, and she does not need anyone telling her how a lady should behave. The reader gets what this lady is all about within the first few chapters. her personality is no mystery.

Logan however is an enigma, he remembers just bits of his past but it is the most recent events which are the most important. He is an officer in the Army, who has an important document that needs to be transported to his command in England. His character is one of duty and honor. He is fascinated with Linnet, he recognizes her fierce need to control him and everything around her.

I never warmed to Linnet. She seemed incredibly self-centered. She is arrogant but even worse she can be unfeeling. For instance, Linnet demands that Logan repay her hospitality by sleeping with her. No matter that he has no memory and might have a wife or loved one waiting for him, she is determined that this man, who is uncomfortable with her repayment terms and with no money, pay his tab in bed.

I think that this book managed to get published simply because of the author's name. It is so horrible I couldn't even finish it, and skipped to the last two pages when I realized this was a stupid book that made no sense. I bought this book thinking it was about a bride and her new life in a rugged location with her husband. There is no bride in this book. And not only is there no bride, but the scenes make no sense whatsoever. For example, near the book opening, the man is the perfect, consumate lover but he is doing so while in a coma and the female keeps checking to make sure his eyes are shut so she knows he's still comatose. Isn't that the most stupid thing you have ever read? Has the author done any research on what it means to be comatose? At all? Oh, and I forgot to mention that the man has a large head wound, a gash down his side that exposes ribs and continues in a curved shape across the abdomen, where someone had tried to disembowel him. Ms. Laurens is a talented author, it just isn't evident in this book.
