Stunning illustrations accompany an epic story that transcends time and space, weaving together two ancient cultures and a love that knows no bounds.
Lady Wang Mei was not looking for love; her life was occupied with managing the family estate and the obligations that befell a young gentry woman in Tang dynasty China.
When the enigmatic Viking Leif Thorinsson literally fell into her world, her well-ordered existence was turned upside down. The alluring blacksmith awakened the primal within her, and their romance blossomed amidst cultural barriers and threats of her own impending betrothal.

Against the backdrop of a picturesque Chinese village and the wild expanse of Nordic landscapes, they must confront not only their tumultuous emotions and unbridled passions, but also the danger looming from the rift that bound their worlds together.
