Item description for Lace and Blade by Deborah J. Ross...
Norilana Books proudly presents the debut title of our new romantic fantasy imprint Leda...
Introducing LACE AND BLADE -- an original new anthology series of elegant romantic fantasy, edited by Deborah J. Ross, premiering on Valentine's Day 2008.
In the spirit of classic period swashbucklers, Zorro, the Scarlet Pimpernel, and D'Artagnan, brimming with romantic courtly intrigue and dangerous liaisons, with cloak and dagger and perfumed handkerchiefs, the language of the fan and stolen glances, with the manners of Jane Austen and the sparkling rapier wit of Oscar Wilde, here are nine fantastic stories of adventure, derring-do, love, and glamorous yet subtle magic, by such stellar authors as Tanith Lee, Catherine Asaro, Diana L. Paxson, Madeleine E. Robins, Robin Wayne Bailey, Dave Smeds, Mary Rosenblum, Chaz Brenchley, and Sherwood Smith.
Don't hesitate another moment... step into a sophisticated other world where passion is a courtly mistress, mystery is moonlight on steel, and magic is the god of love.
En garde, mon amour!

Reviews - What do customers think about Lace and Blade?
Not only a cool anthology, but the new publisher's track record is tops Jun 27, 2008
This is a fun anthology. A collection of very sexy stories wherein daring and dashing heros and heroines resolve their problems with wit and the threat of a blade.
The publisher, Norilana, is new and the book and anthology collections coming from it are, without erring in the books I've read so far, great! Support a new publisher (flesh blood) and get yourself some great reads with this book, Warrior Wisewoman and A Posse Of Princesses.
