Girl in the Arena
As a modern gladiator's daughter, Lyn and her family live by the rules of the Gladiator Sports Association. But those rules can turn against you. When Lyn's seventh father dies in the ring, his opponent, Uber, captures Lyn's dowry bracelet-and her hand in marriage. To win her freedom, Lyn will do what no girl has done before: enter the arena and fight her father's murderer-even though she's falling in love with him.
“The showdown is cleverly designed, and the novel’s girl-power heart is in the right place, but what makes Girl In The Arena tick is Lynn’s engaging, often sardonic voice… She makes it easy to root for her.”

“Vividly rendered…an immersing read…”

“What Lise Haines has wrought is a kind of comic book without pictures, a wild pop novel that—rocking with violent energy and bopping with social satire can generate suspense, horror, laughter and even twinges of tenderness."
- Tom Robbins
