After the utter grossness of My Dark Prince, I needed a proper romance to rinse my brain out. I picked up The Cobra and The Concubine at Half Price Books one day and it’s atypical cover (plus the title, let’s be honest) attracted me. Just a dude on a horse. No embrace. No lady in sight. No rippling pecs or glossy wind-blown hair. These things can either end up being really different and interesting or total failures…entertaining, in any case.
