For the conclusion of her League of the Blade trilogy, Latham has created a feisty, impulsive female bladeswoman. Readers will see, feel, hear and smell the era as well as be captivated by the tried-and-true captive plotline. It's enhanced by a colorful historical backdrop and touches of humor.

Six years ago Diana Winslow was sent to aid women being abused by the Viscount Bannaster. Her impulsive behavior left the viscount dead and suspicions swirling around that his brother, Thomas, was the killer.

Now, Thomas is set to arrive at her home to court her sister. Diana cannot take the chance that he will recognize her, so she boldly takes him captive. But she's not prepared for her overwhelming attraction to her prisoner, or for his falling in love with her. It's a complicated tangle they've gotten into, and when Diana is assigned to investigate Thomas' loyalty to King Henry, their lives and love are in danger. (Avon, Sep., 384 pp., $5.99)
