First in the Masters of Arms series by Jennifer Blake. I highly recommend picking this one up!
When her brother challenges New Orlean's most infamous swordsman to a duel, Celina Vallier boldly confronts his opponent, Rio de Silva, determined to thwart what would be her brother's certain death. The legendary maitre d'armes agrees for a price--Celina's innocence.
Another classic from Jennifer Blake. Looking forward to the next in this series.
A Knight in Shiny Armor that comes to the rescue of a lady in need.
Great historical romance. I highly recomend.
I just didn't really like this book. Too much embellishment on the smallest detail.
set in older new orleans. okay, but i prefer jane feather's stories about that time period.
I enjoyed this one but haven't read a Jennifer Blake I didn't like.
This is a very interesting romance that gives great history on the old art of fencing.
Celina's brother challenges New Orleans's most infamous swordsman to a duel. In order to save her brother from certain death Celina confronts his opponent, Rio de Silva. He agrees to spare her brother, but his price is Celina's innocence.
Great read...first in a series that I look forward to finishing.
This is the first of a series of stories set in New Orleans...I enjoyed the whole tale of romance and sword-fighting. I have almost all of the set so check out all of them to get the whole picture of the society in New Orleans in the past.
