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….


Set in China during the Tang Dynasty, Butterfly Swords is an enchanting tale of Romance and adventure.

Ai Li is on the run from an arranged marriage with the man who killed her brother. She has to find proof of the murder to convince her father not to marry her off to Li Tao.

Ryam is a barbarian in the land of the celestials. He is shunned by most but is intrigued by the woman, dressed as a man, who wields the butterfly swords like a goddess.

Butterfly Swords is a wonderful story about family bonds, finding love and following your own path.

My favorite character in the story is Ai Li's grandmother, she is outspoken and matter of fact and gives Ai Li some risky but wonderful advice.

Butterfly Swords is a wonderful addition to any history buffs library.

  2. Thank you for reading and reviewing Butterfly Swords! I appreciate the thoughtful review.

    And just a note, if you enjoyed Ai Li's grandmother, you may want to check out the short story, The Taming of Mei Lin, which shows how Ai Li's grandmother and grandfather met. Thanks again!
