A smart, historical adventure and gender-bent retelling of The Three Musketeers, in which a girl with a chronic illness secretly trains as a Musketeer and discovers secrets, sisterhood, and self-love.

Tania de Batz is most herself with a sword in her hand. Everyone thinks her dizziness makes her just “a sick girl," but she wants to be a fencer like her father, a former Musketeer. Then Papa is mysteriously murdered, and as his dying wish, he sends Tania to finishing school. But L’Académie des Mariées is so much more. It’s a training ground for new Musketeers: women who are socialites on the surface, but who seduce men into giving up secrets—and don’t shy away from sword fights. Tania finally feels like she's found her sisters, a place where she belongs. But when she's torn between duty and dizzying emotion, she must decide where her loyalties lie . . . or risk losing everything. This is a whirlwind debut about found family, the strength that goes beyond the body, and the power of self-love.
