    This is the third book in a series Blake wrote about a group of masters at arms swordsmen in New Orleans This series isrecent than Blakes older books, and without the old school tropes of forced seduction so far , but without that and other older tropes, she s now heavier on the adjectives, not too much but still worth noting This heroine in this book is from a family with a mysterious casket that has been passed down over generations to the oldest daughter on her wedding, and since t This is the third book in a series Blake wrote about a group of masters at arms swordsmen in New Orleans This series isrecent than Blakes older books, and without the old school tropes of forced seduction so far , but without that and other older tropes, she s now heavier on the adjectives, not too much but still worth noting This heroine in this book is from a family with a mysterious casket that has been passed down over generations to the oldest daughter on her wedding, and since this heroine is a twin and supposedly the older daughterher twin is in competition for the first to wed and claim the casket and its treasure Bonus points in this book is the hero s adoption of a group of street kids with no where to go, and I loved how the heroine took them into her home and her heart Extra bonus points was including the H h of the first two books in the story The one downside is there was an issue misunderstanding that arose early in the book that wasn t resolved at the end, as other reviewers have noted If they had just talked to each other

    Although I greatly enjoyed this book as I enjoyed the second book in the series, Dawn Encounter, I felt the last 50 pages were quite disappointing There seemed to be a lot that Blake was trying to fit into the story that made no sense up until that point I definitely recommend not reading this book first, though it still, in part, can be read as a stand alone some aspects may make less sense if the series is read out of order All that being said, it was an excellent read with a lot of fun Although I greatly enjoyed this book as I enjoyed the second book in the series, Dawn Encounter, I felt the last 50 pages were quite disappointing There seemed to be a lot that Blake was trying to fit into the story that made no sense up until that point I definitely recommend not reading this book first, though it still, in part, can be read as a stand alone some aspects may make less sense if the series is read out of order All that being said, it was an excellent read with a lot of fun and exciting parts

    Juliette Armant desperately needs a husband so she begs the Holy Virgin for one Within five minutes, she receives a proposal of marriage from Nicholas Pasquale, the base born maitre d armes slash Cassanova we ve met in earlier books in the series Nick was joking, so when she instantly accepts Here s the story There s this old trunk, see, and it supposedly contains a family treasure But only the oldest daughter is allowed to open the trunk and check it out, and she has to guard it against Juliette Armant desperately needs a husband so she begs the Holy Virgin for one Within five minutes, she receives a proposal of marriage from Nicholas Pasquale, the base born maitre d armes slash Cassanova we ve met in earlier books in the series Nick was joking, so when she instantly accepts Here s the story There s this old trunk, see, and it supposedly contains a family treasure But only the oldest daughter is allowed to open the trunk and check it out, and she has to guard it against any others, since if the wrong people open the dam thing, there s this curse.And speaking of wrong people, Juliette s spoiled and selfish to the point of bitchery twin sister and her creepy fortune hunting boyfriend will do just about anything to make sure they get the trunk oh, and they also want to be sure Juliette gets dumped in a convent Because God forbid anybody else should have a life Juliette s dumbass mom can t remember which of her twin daughters came first, so it s a race to the altar whichever of the girls marries first will get the prize And her hubby will be HOH, meaning he can decide the fate of the other sister did I mention that the bitchy sister and greedy boyfriend want to put Juliette in a convent So even if Jules doesn t care about winning the trunk treasure, she still needs to hook a groom first if she wants to marry someone other than Jesus No offense to Jesus he s not into shotgun weddings anyway, right.Nick, meanwhile, doesn t take long to decide this thing with Jules was meant to be See, he has collected this passel of street kids and it seems like a good idea to give them a mom Of course he doesn t bother to ask until late in the game whether Jules, who is from a schmancy family, is OK with adopting a bunch of nameless, misbegotten, and not so fragrant urchins.Now I should mention that in this story, Gretna, Louisiana is just across the river, and is set up with a justice who stands ready to preside over quickie civil unions Juliette isn t into the idea She wants the banns read, counseling with the priest, the whole nine You and I may grasp the obvious that the bitchy sister and greedy boyfriend won t be quite so choosy, but it doesn t occur to our H h right off The villains in this piece are profoundly unlikeable, which makes the ending surprising both in the OMG I didn t see it coming and in the WTF kind of way While I love didn t see it coming surprises, the WTF bits left me feeling played 3 stars

    I liked it, but it wasn t spell binding It didn t hold my attention and make a feeling of me that I have to read it though I did read it, so that means something I liked Juliette and her swords man I never like it when people don t talk though I wonder this and I wonder that and I d better not tell him this because he might think this that makes for crappy story lines I m thinking Oh for goodness sakes, just ask him or tell him as it ll either work or not I did skim read a bit here I liked it, but it wasn t spell binding It didn t hold my attention and make a feeling of me that I have to read it though I did read it, so that means something I liked Juliette and her swords man I never like it when people don t talk though I wonder this and I wonder that and I d better not tell him this because he might think this that makes for crappy story lines I m thinking Oh for goodness sakes, just ask him or tell him as it ll either work or not I did skim read a bit here and there, mostly just past the middle point heading towards the end Then it all gets wrapped up A nice book, not terrific

    The Masters at Arms series never fails to be worth the time Jennifer Blake does such a wonderful job of recreating the world of these sword masters, and their New Orleans training schools The cosmopolitan world of turn of the century New Orleans, its history, architecture and fascinating family sagas are all brought vividly to life And every couple in the series wins you over, as they surmount the many hurdles to their happily ever after Enjoy

    Wonderful I have read this book many times over the years Such lovely, interesting characters I ve read a few other books by this author but none I ve liked so much as this one Understated romance, insight into norms of the day and a magnificent swordsman for our hero Perfect.


  8. Cindy Woods Cindy Woods says:

    Good storyThis story was pretty good.not quite as good as the first two books of this series though The story gets a bit convoluted There s a little too much going on in this plot.But I do enjoy reading this author s books, especially the historical fiction romances.I d recommend this based on the series ad a whole, and because Nicholas is so very sexy.


  9. Ioana Ioana says:

    Paulette and Mrs Armand must be two of the most annoying characters I ve ever found in books.Something that I was anticipating and didn t happen in the book is the discussion about what happened at the masquerade ball Why, oh why There were so many hints about that
