OrangeReviewStarIn England on a covert mission to retrieve a pair of small jade tablets for her stepfather in China, lethal martial arts expert Bai Ying-ying (traveling as demure Catherine Blade) is stunned to come face to face with Leighton Atwood, the only man she has ever loved but thought she had left to die eight years ago in China—a man who is now engaged to another. But Leighton is not the only surprise. A bitter, deadly enemy from her past is in London as well, and when Catherine is targeted, she and Leighton must find a way to work together.
VERDICT With incisive character development, deft pacing, and lyrical, nearly poetic prose, Thomas transports readers between remote, breathtaking Chinese Turkestan and teeming late Victorian London. A gripping, mesmerizing romance that is one of Thomas's most unforgettable yet. Thomas (The Luckiest Lady in London) lives in Austin, TX. [An LJ Editors' BEA pick, LJ 7/14, p. 31.]
