    Story
    (106)

    A second battle-hardened, completely unstoppable, all-male hero, an ex-officer of the Crown, confronts the deadly enemy known only as the Black Cobra. He's focused on his mission, then sees a lady he never dreamed he'd see again - with an assassin on her heels. She secretly followed him, unaware her path is deadly - or that she'll join him to battle a treacherous foe.Through ever-present peril, through passion, desire, and ecstasy, they race to reach England - and their destiny.

    Deborah says: "Worse than usual"
    "No more adverbs for Ms. Laurens."

    Story

    Really, I don't expect grand literature in bodice rippers, but this was ridiculous. Ms. Laurens' editor should impose a strict adverb limit and redline the use of: blatantly, flagrantly, demandingly, commandingly, evocatively and provocatively, especially all in one sentence. I only stuck it out because I enjoy Mr. Prebble so much. The characters were superficial and badly developed and no reason for a romance existed. The heroine was effectively a teenage girl confiding in her diary and the hero was more milquetoast than Ashley Wilkes. Blech. Double blech. I can't blech enough.
