Synopsis from the author's official site:
Journey to the very edge of honor, loyalty . . . and love---
During China’s infamous Tang Dynasty, a time awash with luxury, yet littered with deadly intrigues and fallen royalty, betrayed Princess Ai Li flees before her wedding.
Miles from home, with only her delicate butterfly swords for a defense, she enlists the reluctant protection of a blue-eyed warrior…
Battle-scarred, embittered Ryam has always held his own life at cheap value. Ai Li’s innocent trust in him and honorable, stubborn nature make him desperate to protect her – which means not seducing the first woman he has ever truly wanted….
Alright, I confess: I already read this... so watch out for my review of this book in the coming days along with that of Past Midnight by Mara Purnhagen.
