    delightful historical romance

    In 1840 New Orleans, Celina Vallier visits Rio ¿Silver Shadow¿ de Silva to persuade the ¿Master of Arms¿ not to duel her brother Denys. Rio says it is a matter of honor as Denys challenged him, but Celina counters that he made the disparaging remark about her. To her shock, Rio says Denys was not his target, but the sibling immediately stepped into the void that her fiancé failed to do. He also says there is one way she can persuade him to accept disgrace by refusing to duel her brother. Her innocence is worth the price to save Denys¿ life.--- Rio is stunned by Celina¿s courage and is even greater shocked by the attraction he feels to the spunky woman. However, he knows he must not lose sight that she is a pawn in his personal war of vengeance with her fiancé Count de Lerida. Celina sees Rio as her possible escape from a marriage with the odious Count. Of course the Count is a great manipulator of people who will not sit idly by.--- This opening act of the Masters of Arms series is a delightful historical romance starring two likable lead characters, and a fine support cast that adds depth to mostly the French New Orleans¿ lifestyle and a nasty villain. Besides the strong protagonists, the will written story line enables the audience to feel they are in the city in 1840 as a rich tapestry of history is cleverly interwoven into the fabulous plot. This is quite a treat for Americana fans and a challenge for Jennifer Blake to top this tale with her next honorable rogue novel.--- Harriet Klausner

    WORTHWHILE READ

    RARELY DO I READ AMERICAN BASED STORIES BUT DECIDED TO AND AM GLAD I DID. THE AUTHOR HAS A WONDERFUL WAY OF LETTING YOU FEEL AS IF YOU ARE WITH THE CHARACTERS-HEARING AND SEEING WHAT THEY DO-VERY DESCRIPTIVE WRITING--FROM THE LOOK OF NEW ORLEANS IN THAT ERA TO THE CRICKETS ON THE BAYOU. ON A SENSUAL SCALE OF 1-10 IT IS A 6. THIS IS A REVIEW OF THE BOOK NOT A SYNOPSIS-SO I WON'T GIVE AWAY WHAT YOU MAY GUESS FOR YOURSELF IS THE 'SECRET.'

    Classic Historical Romance

    I just finished CHALLENGE TO HONOR with a sense of coming home--home to a great traditional historic romance. Like a favorite dance to a favorite tune. Ms. Blake has never been in better form with her impressive knowledge and use of the setting--New Orleans in 1840. And I do love a carefully written book with good use of vocabulary. Rio is one of those almost infallible heroes that never lets you--or the heroine--down. Those guys are becoming an endangered species. Celina is all a heroine should be--strong, beautiful, and smart. I am looking forward to the next book in this series, DAWN ENCOUNTER. Can't wait to see what Caid is up to.
