I LOVED Dreamspell and The Unveiling. But this one has made me unsure if I want to pick up any more of Tamara Leigh's books, that's how uncomfortable I was with the premise.
The first scene of the book finds our heroine fighting off an attack from a would-be rapist. Then some time later, she meets the man again and begins to extract her revenge. But she questions her memories... and she is so attracted to him. So attracted, in fact, that she cannot control her thoughts or her lust towards him.
Yeah.... I don't really like that. To have her attracted to him, at all, I think sends a really really wrong message. That made me too uncomfortable to enjoy the book.
And, as a side note, I thought the ending was a little anticlimactic.
This book, though. “Lady at Arms” has to rate among the worst romances I’ve ever read. It says in the Front Matter that it’s a “clean read” rewrite of Warrior Bride. Ten-to-one, Warrior Bride is a bodice-ripper. I couldn’t get beyond chapter four.
You see, in order to enjoy a romance, you generally have to (1) identify with the heroine and (2) fall in love with the hero. The heroine of “Lady at Arms” is a raven-haired imbecile who kidnaps the hero and challenges him to a duel because he looks like the guy who crippled her brother. Let me tell you something. If I were stupid enough to kidnap someone and challenge him to a duel, I’d at least be sure I had the right person!
And our romantic hero. Ai-yi-yi. Our romantic hero is a lusting sexist who sees our heroine as an adorable piece of meat you can’t possibly take seriously. I mean, challenge HIM to a duel? Him, the great knight? Are you for real? And of course, everyone who works for her is incompetent, making it far too easy for him to turn the situation to his advantage.
Oh well. I have several other Tamara Leigh books in my Kindle library, but I honestly don’t know if I’ll bother reading them, which is a disappointment because the covers are so pretty.
I would recommend this book for adults only as there are some attempted rapes, unsuccessful but non the less should probably only be read by adults. Of course in this day maybe teens are more prepared to read this.
Lady at Arms was once Warrior Bride. As I understand it Lady at Arms is a cleaned up version. I don’t know what made Tamara re-write this series but I appreciate it. I am one that prefers a clean romance versus anything else.
I enjoyed the main character in this book, she is spunky. Something we are seeing more and more of in the movies and television series. I like seeing a woman who can speak for herself. Even though I enjoyed this book (and would recommend it) and had many things I enjoyed the med-evil setting, the suspense, the action, the romance, it wasn’t a page turner. I didn’t stay up late reading this. To be honest some nights I feel asleep reading it. For a lazy day where you just want to sit and enjoy a book, well this book is for that special occasion so go sit by the fire, or under a blanket and enjoy this fun read.
I rate this book a 3 out of 4 stars.
When Lizanne sees the man who tried to rape her she plots revenge for what she and her family has suffered. He escapes and captures her. Although the spitting image of her attacker, he doesn't act anything like him. He was drawn to her from the first moment he saw her, but can't understand why she hates and despises him. She is confused by his kind and honorable ways. Her heart wants him while her mind hates him.
I admire her strength of will. She has learned weapons like the bow and even the sword so she will never feel like the victim again. Her brother indulges her in this highly unsuitable quest, for a medieval woman, because he feels he can never make up for failing her.

This one in particular I enjoyed because in a era when females were expected to be submissive , she has produced a female lead that is both strong and courageous.
Tamara has a excellent descriptive style of writing which makes the reader part of the story line.
I am happy to recommend this Medieval Romance. And look forward to her next book
