"This action-packed novel has a unique and compelling plot...Fans of Carrie Asai's Samurai Girl series will be particularly interested, but even readers who dislike supernatural story lines will enjoy this tale of modern samurais." ~School Library Journal~

"An action packed page-turner tempered with slow-burning romance." ~Booklist~

Kill Bill meets Buffy in this supernatural samurai tale

Rileigh Martin would love to believe that adrenaline gave her the uncanny courage and strength to fend off three muggers. But it doesn't explain her dreams of fifteenth century Japan, the incredible fighting skills she suddenly possesses, or the strange voice giving her battle tips and danger warnings. While worrying that she's going crazy (always a reputation ruiner), Rileigh gets a visit from Kim, a handsome martial arts instructor, who tells Rileigh she's harboring the spirit of a five-hundred-year-old samurai warrior.

Relentlessly attacked by ninjas, Rileigh has no choice but to master the katana--a deadly Japanese sword that's also the key to her past. As the spirit grows stronger and her feelings for Kim intensify, Rileigh is torn between continuing as the girl she's always been and embracing the warrior inside her.

Don’t forget to pick up a copy of her second novel Breathless, available soon.

Thanks for entering, and good luck with the giveaway!


  1. How about making your giveaways eBooks for those of us who live outside the US?

  2. So looking forward to reading this one. Cole is awesome!

  3. After doing a interview with her as part of the Blog Ring of Power, I'd really love to read her books! I do have to agree with Widdershins, having it in EPUB or PDF format would help with those living outside of the good ole USofA. I suppose it's too late now though.

  4. Oh and my e-mail is Don't include this post, as it was my folly that I didn't add it to my comment. Sorry

  5. We do have e-book giveaways, sometimes. I can't do it for this giveaway - I let you in on a secret - I think I can get Cole to sign the book for whoever wins. But having another giveaway with an e-book of Katana and Breathless... that might be coming some Monday in the future!

    1. Place happy dance here. That would be cool! :D

  6. Oooh, oohh **waves hand frantically** Put my name in the hat for the random drawing, please!

  7. Pick me! Pick me!

    Both of these books sound exciting. I'm really big on strong female protagonists and my son likes swords.
