Count Francesco battles the forces of the Duke for the attentions of the Prince's niece in this rousing adventure that reminds us of the Romance in Adventure. Sabatini's Love-at-Arms is an exuberant romp through love and war, heroism and treachery in late 15th-Century Italy. A strong and noble Count must save the Prince's beautiful niece from the unwanted attentions of both a loathsome Duke and a treacherous courtier. Live the siege of the impregnable castle with much wine and little powder, as the count almost literally turns the tables on his enemies.

About the Author
His writing career was launched with a collection of short stories, followed by several novels. Fame, however, came with ‘Scaramouche’, the much-loved story of the French Revolution, which became an international bestseller. ‘Captain Blood’ followed soon after, which resulted in a renewed enthusiasm for his earlier work which were rushed into reprint.
For many years a prolific writer, he was forced to abandon writing in the 1940’s through illness and eventually died in 1950.
Sabatini is best remembered for his heroic characters and high-spirited novels, many of which have been adapted into classic films, including Scaramouche, Captain Blood and The Sea Hawk. They appeal to both a male and female audience with drama, romance and action, all placed in historical settings.
It was once stated in the ‘Daily Telegraph’ that ‘one wonders if there is another storyteller so adroit at filling his pages with intrigue and counter-intrigue, with danger threaded with romance, with a background of lavish colour, of silks and velvets, of swords and jewels.’
