Thomas is a Canadian who works hard in international development (and exploitainment). His first post is in Vietnam where he is tasked with contriving convincing planning and progress reports to ensure that his federally-funded company continues to bank coin through “infrastructure development”. All the while, he falls in love with Vietnam, the people and their ways. Unrequited and unfortunately, his hard work begets hard time(s) as he is dismissed from his creative writing job, and thereby Vietnam, on charges of “immoral behavior”. A victim of love, he rambles throughout Asia, from country to country, and girl to girl, fueled by one bottle after another, trying his worst to emulate the frivolous meanderings of his far more successful author friend, Grant. Along this journey, from Thailand, to South Korea, to Indonesia, to Vietnam with double-backs, he strives to re-realize his long-lost goal of finding the one woman with whom he can finally settle down; a life-partner who will not only allow for his perverse proclivities, but also finally put them to rest. Could a final jaunt, this one to China – a land of over half a billion women – partner him with that one woman who can finally contain his affections?

Intrigue, deception, betrayal. What are a few knives in the back between two lovers?
Qing Dynasty, China.
Some wounds cut too deeply to ever truly heal, to ever be forgotten. For the rebel Phong Quay, The Princess Ni Soung is one of those wounds – a remnant of the most painful chapter in his life, a pawn in his never ending war with his greatest enemy, the Emperor Ni Fehn.
As the Han rebellion against the Emperor intensifies, The Princess Soung becomes caught in the middle. As bait in the Emperor’s most brazen bid to date to bring Phong Quay down, the princess may just find herself a casualty in the battle between the two men – a battle between the past and the present, between the truth and lies, between love and revenge.
