"A ravishing work of historical fiction about devotion and revenge amid the 'bloodstained dust' of war." - Kirkus ReviewsIf you enjoyed the movies Ang Lee's "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" and Jet Li's "Hero," you'll ABSOLUTELY LOVE this book! Dew on Ginkgo Leaves opens on a vast Chinese battlefield filled with clashing armored warriors, arrows bombarding the skies and men on horses slicing through the thick hordes of soldiers. This is where we find our heroine, Jade Flower, also known as the "Tigress." She and her husband Wu Lei are part of an elite fighting class of warriors, trained to be the secret weapons of the Emperor. The two of them glide through the battle cutting down their enemies with grace and finesse. But a dark hooded figure steps out from the shadows and with a long draw on their bow they aim their sights at Wu Lei. The poisoned arrow pierces through Wu Lei and time stands still for Jade as she watches her husband, her one true love die before her eyes. Now a widow Jade seeks vengeance for her husbands death with the poisoned arrow tip as her only clue to his killer. But Jade's story doesn't end here, it is merely the beginning as she is summoned to the Emperor's palace. She arrives to meet with the Emperor who pays his respects to her fallen love. But the Emperor has plans for her and quickly Jade discovers that she is to be married that night to General Yu Luan, another elite widowed warrior and possible traitor to the empire. As a direct order from the Emperor she must comply. Both epic and cinematic, Dew on Ginkgo Leaves is a tale about love, loss and conspiracy set in the mystical realm of China. This story comes from a land of tradition and honor and is an action-packed epic filled with elaborate marital arts fighting sequences. At the heart of this journey are two widowed warriors who find strength within one another as they learn to trust and love again. This novel is the first of a series of books that center around Jade Flower (The Tigress) and her journey as a warrior hero. In the end, Jade will learn what it means to overcome loss and dig deep within herself to find strength to continue on. Four hearts, two of them gone, now beat as one as Jade learns that love can conquer any war.

Reviews

-A wild ride of romance, intrigue and betrayal... A whirlwind page turner!!!- - Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff, New York Times Bestselling author of THE MERI and NYT Bestselling Co-Author of Star Wars: The Last Jedi -A fast-paced, mesmerizing and action packed story!!! It's hard to read Dew on Ginkgo Leaves: The Tigress and The General without thinking about the famous Chinese actors like Jet Li or Jackie Chan; and yes, this novel could be great on screen!- - Christian Sia, Readers' Favorite -An epic ride! A wonderfully, visually, luscious descriptive story...beautifully captures that Eastern sense of heroism and duty...with all the action, politics and intrigue, there's plenty there to satisfy all readers.- - Cate Hogan, Romance Writer and Editor -Dew on Ginkgo Leaves is a truly gripping read. I found myself immersed in ancient China, complete with traditions and historical accuracy. The writing is smooth... wrought with well-scripted, and realistic action. Todd L. Shuler writes a believable tale based in the ancient era and does so brilliantly. I thoroughly enjoyed reading Dew on Ginkgo Leaves...[a] fascinating tale of love, loss, patriotism, and deceit, certainly more than enough to keep any reader turning the pages.- - K. J. Simmill, Readers' Favorite -A great atmospheric story, set in Imperial China, it is easy to lose yourself in the culture and brilliantly described settings. The storyline is exciting. More exciting still is the relationship development. The love of duty to their country and their passion takes the unlikely couple from active dislike to love in a very believable and heartfelt journey. The characters are relatable and brought to life with such artistry that it is very easy to become completely invested in them right to the end. An excellent read.- -- Nadine Currie, Editor
