Triumph At Arms is a vivid, exciting tale, lush with emotional intensity and accurate descriptions of antebellum New Orleans.

Sadly, This book is the last in Ms. Blake's Master at Arms series, about swordmasters in 1840's New Orleans. Historicals set in the United States are not exactly my cup of tea, but I decided to try the first of the series, Challenge to Honor. I was hooked.

Her heroes are exactly the kind of men I like--decent, honorable men who've been kicked around and it's made them bette

Maitre d'armes Christien Lenoir wins a card game that hands him the Cassard family estate. It's all part of a master plan.

He'll let the family stay at the plantation—if the widowed Reine Marie Cassard Pingre will marry him.

Reine lives under a cloud. Her husband, Theodore, died under odd circumstances, and many in New Orleans believe she killed him. And why wouldn't she? The jerk treated her like dirt. But she didn't. Now she lives in her family home, raising a daughter and enjoying her freedom

With cataract problems, I'm restricted to reading large print books from the library of which there is a limited choice. Neither the cover or the title really appealed to me thugh the story blurb did sound promising. Rather than have nothing to read (perish the thought!), I decided to give it a go. I'm glad I did, it proved to be a good read. I gather, from the author's notes, that it is one of a series of 'Masters at Arms' books, about a New Orleans brotherhood of master swordsmen who swear ven ...more

I adored all of the Masters at Arms books. Each of the heroes was to die for. The stories were well plotted and the setting in old New Orleans was intriguing, to say the least.
I thought the story line was good. Not very romancer story. But I still want to read more of Jenifer Blake's stories.

This book was boring. I could not get in to it. Took me forever to read.
The storyline was beyond predictable. Every time a minor or major problem arose, you could so tell what would happen next or who was at fault.
There was one interesting part, very near the end and very brief.
Not impressed what-so-ever
I loved the historical detail of the period in this romance. The vividness of the characterisation was complimented by the accurately narrated details of architecture, language and customs. A really good read. The only reason why it is not a 5 is because the ending was a bit too melodramatic for my taste.
Like many of the recent Jennifer Blake books I've read, this book started slow. But it turned out to be a solid read and kept me entertained, although not as much as other books from this series.
