Blake adds another memorable book to her Maitres d'Armes series. With dialogue filled with subtle nuances and a fine overview of the art of fencing and duels, she brings together a noble, honorable hero and a heroine bent on revenge in a compassionate, sensual
and emotionally intense love story.
The sexual tension between them sparks as they spar on the fencing strip and in bed, but Ariadne won't reveal her enemy's name, even though Gavin tries to sway her from her vow of revenge. Who will win in this duel of heart and sword? (MIRA, Feb., 384 pp., $6.99)
