Angel With A Blade - Sweet Saturday Sample

Happy Saturday! Today I'm taking part in Sweet Saturday Samples.

This sample comes from my published sweet historical romance Angel With A Blade.

Hand on the hilt of her sword, she parried and lunged, narrowly missing the dark-haired man’s throat. Again she lunged and again she missed. Her lack of rest since the start of her journey didn’t help.

With a grunt, both men came at her, their swords aimed low to the ground. She leapt as their swords swiped air. Rebecca landed, rolled to her knees and dove to the side. They gave her little time to recover before they stalked forward, backing her into the corner. The points of their swords came too close for her comfort and the one called Barton managed to draw blood along her forearm. She refused to give up or show weakness.

Jaw clenched, she struck forward. Her sword circled and connected against one sword and then the other, the steels clanging together so loudly it became almost deafening. She took a step back out of range of their blades and then parried. Sword tight in her grip, she moved like the wind to strike.

Angel with a Blade is available from Amazon

Thank you for stopping by!

Perhaps she should aim for a lower region on their bodies and cut them where it would REALLY hurt ~ ha! Great sample!

Thank you ladies! I love swordplay. My favorite scenes in movies are always the ones with swordplay - Three Musketeers, Princess Bride, Pirates of the Caribbean, Zorro, heck I love light sabers too.

While I've always admired the beautiful choreography of it, it's rare to see a woman in swordplay. If I knew how, I just know I'd love it :)
