Beautifully written

Historic detail melds with almost poetic prose to form a delightful story about honor, love, friendship, duty, and even respect. The romance is more sensual than steamy, but that's OK. Enjoy!

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

Rated 4.3 Stars

Oh drat, this is the last book of the series. I'll surely miss it. At least the last one went out with a bang!

A Plantation, a stupid wager, a gambler who wins said plantation (and makes sure the daughter comes with it), a marriage of convenience (well mostly), ghost stories, murder, the innocent accused, the truth sets them free, and always, the beauty of LOVE.

This story was riveting and thoroughly enjoyable. Christien and Reine were a wonderful couple and I adored Reine's daughter Marguerite as she was totally adorable. The ending has me anxiously reading the pages to find out the conclusion and I wasn't disappointed. Awesome story and one I won't soon forget.

All six books in this series are well written, filled with adventure and romance. This author delicately describes intimate scenes with thoughtful tact. Love the setting (New Orleans) and well formed characters. Highly recommend!

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

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 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.

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 thought the story line was good. Not very romancer story. But I still want to read more of Jenifer Blake's stories.

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.
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.
