Tang Dynasty China, 824 A.D. Dao was raised as a servant, but when her half–sister flees an arranged marriage to a chieftain, Dao is sent in her place as Princess An–Ming. Such a future is better than she could have hoped for, yet she dreads a passionless union with a stranger. Taken as a virtual hostage to the Imperial court, Kwan–Li is torn between his people and his duty to the emperor. He is bound by honour to escort the princess safely across the wild and untamed steppe, but the greatest danger they face on the long journey may be the forbidden temptation of each other…

About the Author

Jeannie Lin grew up fascinated with stories of Western epic fantasy and Eastern martial arts adventures. When her best friend introduced her to romance novels in middle school, the stage was set. Jeannie started writing her first romance while working as a high school science teacher in South Central Los Angeles. After four years of trying to break into publishing with an Asian-set historical, her 2009 Golden Heart Award-winning manuscript, Butterfly Swords, sold to Harlequin Mills&Boon.

As a technical consultant, backpacker and vacation junkie, she's traveled all over the United States as well as Europe, South Korea, Japan, China and Vietnam. She's now happily settled in St. Louis with her wonderfully supportive husband, and she continues to journey to exotic locations in her stories.
