Cruisin’

Published March 20, 2013 by francesothomas

I dream of taking a Viking river cruise through Europe some day. Until then, Stepahnie Laurens’s The Reckless Bride was the next best thing. 

The dashing military man, Rafe, and Loretta, the about-to-come-into-her-own heroine, sail the Danube and the Rhine. Since Loretta is writing surreptitious travel columns to send home, there are lots of descriptions of the towns along their route.

For much of the journey, the twosome is accompanied by Loretta’s Great Aunt Esme, Lady Congreve. This indomitable lady is reminiscent of the Dowager Countess of Downton Abbey. She, of course, knows a romance is afoot well before the lovers do. 

This novel is the last of the Black Cobra Quartet series. By the end of the book, various and sundry characters from several of Laurens’s earlier series have gathered to tie up all the loose plot ends.
