Blog Tour and Giveaway: Dragon Lady by Autumn Bardot

Dragon Lady by Autumn Bardot

Publication Date: August 1, 2019
Flores Publishing
Genre: Historical Fiction
Prostitution required the violation of my body. Piracy required my soul. The first enslaved me. The second set me free.
A young girl is taken from her home and sold into slavery to a floating brothel. Xianggu begins as a servant, but soon her virginity is bought by the highest bidder. Ambitious and determined, she learns the business in hopes of earning her freedom from the madam. Her dreams are washed away when a midnight pirate raid changes her life.
Kidnapped by the notorious Red Flag boss, Xianggu embarks on a journey that demands beauty, brains, and brawn. But Xianggu must do more than learn to wield a sword, sail a ship, and swim across the bay, she must become indispensable to the pirate boss if she hopes to survive. The winds, however, never blow in the same direction, and Xianggu must make a decision that requires her to battle jealous men, ancient prejudices, and her own heart.
The triumph of the notorious Zheng Yi Sao is a sexy, fierce, and unflinchingly realistic story of how a prostitute became the most powerful and successful pirate in the world.
In 18th century China, when men made and enforced the rules, the Dragon Lady lived by her own.

Available on Amazon

My Review

Dragon Lady is a little bit different from most books I read. I love historical fiction, but I can not remember reading one involving China. I thought it was pretty good. Xianggu is a great character. Her spirit, bravery, determination, courage, and her will to survive, makes a reader want to continue to read. I wanted to know what was going to happen to her next. 

I am giving Dragon Lady four stars. I recommend it for readers who enjoy a good historical read. 

I received this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
