I don't read a lot of romance/erotica because they tend to be so unbelievable in their plots that I end up laughing at the absurdity. Well, this one was no different. In 8th century China, a woman with sword abilities would have been frowned upon. But it could have been cool, like Mulan. Instead we ...

Oh how I wanted to love this story, but I didn't. To be honest this was all I wanted to type for my review, and really there is nothing else that needs to be said.

In particular, the heroine immediately lusts after the hero (and vice versa...

I really loved this until the last 50 pages where some of the hero's/heroine's decisions started not to make much sense for me. Still, a very nice book and so much different from other romances.There is another book that deals with the relationship between a Chinese and a foreigner, that's not pure ...

Really enjoyed this one. Most historicals are set in different places, not Asia.

I loved the setting, but everything else felt formulaic.
