The Untamed Bride
Stephanie Laurens
3 stars

Goodreads Blub:
They're battle-hardened, sinfully wealthy, completely unstoppable --- and all male: Four officers of the Crown, fighting against a deadly foe known only as the Black Cobra.

He is a man who has faced peril without flinching, determined to fight for king and country.

She is a bold, beautiful woman with a scandalous past, destined to become an untamed bride.

Together they must vanquish the ruthless enemy, while confronting the dangers of the heart ...

The Untamed Bride is the first book in the Black Cobra Quartet. The prelude was slow going but needed. It picked up when the story really started.
Del is the leader of a group of solders on a secret mission. Deliah is a neighbor who needs an escort home. Along the way home there are cultists following them trying to kill Del and Deliah in order to get the evidence that could ruin their boss the Black Cobra.
Deliah had been in Jamaica for "new horizons" but the truth was a one time affair with a young man who left her and her parents sent her off. She doesn't feel like she is the woman who could live up to someone Del could love. She is fine with being his lover but thinks she lacks what it takes to be his wife.
Del falls in love with Deliah but like most men doesn't tell her and doesn't feel like he should think of their future together until the mission is over.
