The Dragon of Hidden Treasures: Book 1
Juliann Troi, author
China, 1923: In an ancient land battling for its very existence, violence and chaos reign supreme. Amidst the devastating aftermath of a revolution that toppled the divine Imperial system and left the once glorious Empire torn and bleeding, ruthless warlords have claimed dominion. Political intrigue and betrayal are the only rulers now. In the wrong place at the wrong time, Kathryn Kidwell is captured during an invasion of Canton by the warlord, Cheng Jiong. Recognizing the folly of allowing the only daughter of a powerful American trade lord to be cold-bloodedly murdered, Wang Tyan-wei must make an impossible choice: to save Kathryn will cost him his life, but to let her die could mean the death of his beloved homeland. The Dragon of Hidden Treasures, Book 1 is the first chapter in the electrifying tale of Tyan-wei and Kathryn’s desperate struggle to stay alive and stop a war that would blow China to pieces. Bound together by a love as strong as it is forbidden, their efforts could ultimately change the fate of a nation…and destroy them both.
