Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Adventure addicts adore Laurens’ quartet focusing on four brothers who must each complete a piece of a puzzle before the mystery can be solved. The third installment is as intrigue-ridden and passionate as the others. A must-read.” RT Book Reviews (4 stars)
“Love, lust, and action in the lush jungles of West Africa…Laurens’ rich characterization and well-thought-out plot make for a captivating adventure romance and provide elements of danger and surprise throughout the story. The vivid narrative, combined with quick cuts from scene to scene, make for an engrossing read with an ending poised to continue the adventure with yet another Frobisher brother.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“An adventure-filled entry in a solid historical romance series.” Kirkus Reviews
“The vividly etched West African jungle setting gives a refreshing twist to Laurens’ latest Regency-set historical romance.” Booklist
“Narrator Steve West continues the adventures of the Frobisher brothers as they solve the mystery of missing British citizens in this historical romance…West masters the voices of the different characters, particularly the menace of the sadistic mercenary. Listeners can feel the building tension as the captives desperately await rescue. While one does not have to be familiar with the prior two books to enjoy West’s narration, everyone will certainly be looking forward to the conclusion of the adventure.” AudioFile

Almost Pure Adventure

Unlike most Stephanie Laurens novels, this book is almost pure adventure. In fact, had she stripped out the romance aspect altogether, this book would have been a decent adventure novel that hearkens to the adventures of Allan Quatermain. The romance element feels forced and doesn’t really advance or serve the plot. At least there’s not a lot of mushiness in this book. Be aware: this book ends with a cliff hanger.
