In this swashbuckling romance, a sinister plot has just been uncovered, and its up to a former patriot and a young nurse to discover who is behind it.
Caroline is engaged to the future mayor of Laketown, a man of influence and greatly respected. But all that changes when she overhears a conspiracy behind closed doors. After being discovered, she runs for her life. Caroline needs to report her findings, but whom can she trust? When she asks Jesse Conover for help, the adventure begins.
This is the third book in the Cordovia series, set a few years after the rebels overthrow the king. The citizens of Cordovia are working to set up a system of government. In the city of Laketown, a mayoral race is on. Caroline, an educated nurse who worked with the rebellion, is engaged to one of the candidates. When she overhears her fiance plotting to tamper with the election, she calls on the Fox, the hero of Laketown, for help.
This was a sweet clean read with plenty of intrigue and excitement to keep things interesting. It can be read as a standalone but is best enjoyed after reading books one and two. I really liked both Caroline and Jesse. Caroline is a strong feisty woman and not afraid to defend herself. I loved their various disguises and how much fun they had together!
The narration was great, the narrator performed accents and voices and immersed me in the story. I requested a copy of the audiobook, and I'm voluntarily leaving a review.

I loved this book. It is full of adventure, drama, intrigue and suspense. We've got kidnapping plots, pirate ships, daring rescues and romance.
The author weaves an exciting tale and a sweet romance together in a way that will appeal to all readers and is suitable from age twelve up.
I realised when I started this book that I hadn't read the second in the series however, each book contains its own story and romance without any cliffhangers and they can be enjoyed as stand alone novels.
I voluntarily reviewed a gifted copy.

Deciphering who to trust is a hard lesson in life. Join Caroline on a journey that will forever change her. A great story line!
This book was provided free of charge in exchange for a review.
This third book in this series continues the struggles of good vs. evil. The main character finds not all is as expected and continues through her efforts to right the wrongs and stay alive.
This is a fun read and the narration is great.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
Kashner's robotic performance was painful, made it very difficult to get through and distracted me from the actual storyline.
Do you think The Fox of Cordovia needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
Nope! Story here is much the same as the previous two, just different characters. All storylines were really tied up in the first book.
Any additional comments?
The series of 3 books is a collection of sweet, clean romances appropriate for all ages. Would be great for listening while commuting or on the beach, when you just don't want to get to in-depth. ***This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.***

This is the 3rd book in the rebel series but it stands alone. It is a lovely romantic adventure without foul language or sex. In this story Caroline overhears a plot by her fiancé to kidnap a woman in order to get money for his upcoming election. Caroline flees immediately, is followed, but is protected by Jesse - who is also The Fox! Their adventure includes clever disguises, ruses, and hiding on a pirate ship.
I appreciated the author's message regarding the recognizing of abusive relationships where a partner tries to obtain dominance by controlling and belittling,
I was gifted a copy of the audiobook in exchange for an honest review.
Linda Weaver Clarke does it again, she takes us back to Cordovia on another quest to fight and maintain the freedom they fought so hard to get. This time it's the romance between Caroline and Jesse, who she does not know is the "Fox". There are many twist and turns, intrigue and a sweet 'clean' romance in this story and one you will enjoy. Whether you enjoy listening to audiobooks or reading Linda Weaver Clarke's novels will entertain and leaving you with a smile on your lips in the end
I enjoyed this third book in the Rebel Series. I would rate it 3.5 out of 5, and am, therefore, rounding up to 4 stars. This wasn't my favorite book in the series (Book #2 holds that honor), but it was entertaining nonetheless. I feel like there was more potential for this one that wasn't utilized somehow. There are still lots of adventure and interesting situations, as well as interesting characters. I loved to hate Caroline's fiancee, and I loved Caroline and Jesee. I listened to the Audible audio version of this book and the narrator did a good job. I had a complaint that she sounded a little robotic in the earlier books, but I didn't notice it as much in this one. Maybe she got more comfortable with the characters. Overall, if you like clean romance, this, as well as the other books in the series, are a good choice.
The Fox of Cordovia is a very enjoyable quest story by Linda Weaver Clarke that continues the adventures that started in The Rebels of Cordovia, an entertaining Robin Hood-type saga. In the first book, we met the daughter of a local baker, Robin, who secretly taught a small group of vigilantes to fight for basic freedoms against a tyrant king who taxed his subjects into extreme poverty. While no historical era is provided, I would say it is loosely based in the 17th Century. The Fox of Cordovia is the third book in this series and the lead characters are just as engaging as in the prior two books.
Caroline is the daughter of a doctor, a compassionate nurse, and the future wife of an aspiring politician. Her world comes crashing down when she overhears her fiancé plotting to overthrow the current government. She immediately flees and goes into hiding when her fiancé puts a price on her head. Thankfully Caroline’s father didn’t trust her fiancé and hired the former Fox of Cordovia to watch over her. As the Fox, Jesse led a small group of vigilantes that fought for basic freedoms and rights in the Lakeview District of Cordovia. The story really begins when Jesse and Caroline investigate and uncover the depths of her fiance’s depravity, who is just a small pawn in a larger scale corruption and a possible resurrection of “The Kingsman.” In particular I really enjoyed the short sojourn Jesse and Caroline take on his former pirate ship to escape arrest, with a cast of engaging supporting characters.
Carolyn Kashner narrated this audiobook and she did a wonderful job with varying voices for both male and female characters. Because this story picks up shortly after the second book (The Highwaymen of Cordovia), I recommend starting with the first book to better understand the overarching premise and interrelationships between the characters.
The Fox of Cordovia is book 3 of the Rebel Series by Linda Weaver Clarke, narrated by Carolyn Kashner. Each book contains its own interesting plot and so could serve as a stand-alone book, as well. As with the other books, it is also a historical fiction of a clean and enjoyable nature. There is nothing to worry about if a younger reader would want to read the book.
It contains adventure, romance, and pirates! If this is the type of book that intriques you, you will love it.
Carolyn Kashner is a talented narrater with a very expressive style that is fun and easy to listen to making the Audible version very enjoyable.
I think you will enjoy reading this one!
I received an Audible version of this book. All thoughts are my own.
