Tuesday Ebook Spotlight: Blake's 'Guarded Heart'

Book 4 of Jennifer Blake’s “Masters at Arms” series, featuring “the notorious swordsmen of New Orleans--charming by day, dangerous at night,” is now free to download as an ebook.

Here’s the book description of "Guarded Heart":

The last thing Gavin Blackford expects from an alluring and sophisticated lady at a New Year’s reception is a request to teach her how to kill a man. As a respected fencing master and duelist of renown, his usual clients are male. To refuse is his first impulse—but his curiosity is aroused by her unsettling combination of mystery and fiery intentions.

Ariadne Faucher never expected Gavin to be armored with intelligence and intuition as well as strength. It can’t be allowed to matter. All she requires it to get close to him to touch—preferably with the point of a sword.

Their lessons by candlelight are physically and emotionally intense, an escalating duel of hearts and minds. As tempers and passions rise, they draw ever nearer to the secret that has brought them together. But must it be a fight to the death—or can they turn and face their common enemy together?
