A Dance with Danger - Jeannie Lin

A promise sworn on the edge of a sword…

After a failed assassination attempt on a corrupt general, Bao Yang is a wanted man. Taking refuge with an ally, Yang accidentally compromises the man's daughter when they're discovered alone. To save her honor, he must marry the beautiful Jin-mei immediately!

In Yang's arms, Jin-mei feels alive for the first time. She's determined not to lose him, even if it means joining his perilous mission… But when she realizes just how destructive Yang's path could be, can she convince him that their life together could be so much sweeter than revenge? 

My thoughts:
These are so fun! China over a thousand years ago. Romance, danger, fun! There is nothing like it. I have said it before, but yes what I like the best is the fact that it is set in China. It's different. It's fresh. It's good.

In this one former rebel leader Yang is on the run. He is seen with a woman. Her dad gets mad and boom! They are married. But Jin-mei does not mind. She wants more from life, and he is hot. But then there is the whole I am on the run, I can't have a wife thing.

Sure they are married, but they get to know each other after that. They fall in love after they have met and it was a nice journey to see. Also there is danger as people are after him. I do like romance and danger. I even liked quiet village life (they went though a village), because it was new to me.

Conclusion:
This is a different sort of historical romance. Broaden your horizon, and visit China. There is romance, swords and dangers to be had.

  1. I'm going to have to look for this. I'm always looking for historical fiction not set in the U.S. or England.

  5. Historical romance set in China sounds like something I might enjoy! At least it's different, which is all kinds of awesome.

  9. I wonder if this has become a series after I read the very first one, Butterfly Swords, five years ago. I even wrote a review, imagine that ;) It is here if you are curious. I remember that one as much fun, so it seems likely the novels are related to one another. Same author and set during the Tang dynasty. I think I need to carry on, more fun than a lot of paranormal if you ask me(like Cat and Bones just isn't my cup of tea - gosh I can not understand how she gets turned on with a dead body just a few meters from her).

  17. Glad you enjoyed this, it does sound different. I'm not too big a fan of these kinds of Harlequins, the covers always put me off.
