Description

Abducted by a Samurai warlord in 17th-century Japan – what happens when fear turns to love?

England, 1611, and young Hannah Marston envies her brother’s adventurous life. But when she stows away on a merchant ship, her powers of endurance are stretched to their limit. Then they reach Japan and all her suffering seems worthwhile – until she is abducted by Taro Kumashiro’s warriors.

In the far north of the country, samurai warlord Kumashiro is intrigued to learn more about the girl who he has been warned about by a seer. There’s a clash of cultures and wills, but they’re also fighting an instant attraction to each other.

With her brother desperate to find her and the jealous Lady Reiko equally desperate to kill her, Hannah faces the greatest adventure of her life. And Kumashiro has to choose between love and compromising his honour …

    I have no time to update my shelves - not that I have much time to read, either, but that's beside the point - so I'll keep it short.

    I didn't know it was a historical romance. I have no luck when it comes to romances, no prejudice either, but dude... talk about simplistic. Everything gets kicked to hell because of LOVE. History be damned. Cultural differences be damned. Why I am writing all this, I don't even know. Should I treat historical romances differently because they are romances? Wouldn't it be insulting to the genre?

    People in Edo period wear slippers. A daimyō sits with an European girl in front of a temple in Asakusa and they eat yakitori. All Europeans - save the beautiful, spirited heroine - are mean, smelly, racist and misogynistic. All Japanese are simply wonderful, minus one nasty Japanese woman who is the heroine's rival. The love interest, the daimyō dude, is supposed to be hot, but his name is Tarō... omg.

    I did finish it, so I guess 2 stars.
