As a lieutenant in the US Marine Corps—as handsome and cocky as Richard Gere—Michael Stuart was once considered an officer and a gentleman. But that’s all changed. Now he’s seen as a renegade, a traitor and a thief.
Stuart is a man without a country . . . and perhaps without a prayer. Why? Because in a daring plot to foil the Japanese puppet regime in China, he set out to reinstate the country’s true emperor. Known now as The Red Dragon, Stuart is a soldier of fortune in war-torn Manchuria—and a man of honor in a world of treachery.
Stuart’s latest adventure takes him from Peking to the Great Wall and beyond. He’s in a race against time and against the Japanese super-spy known as the Hell-Cat, both of them in hot pursuit of an elusive black chest. For Stuart, the ultimate prize is one filled with mystery, power, and treasure—not only in the chest itself, but in the love of the beautiful woman who has sent him on this mission. . . .
In between my longer reads, I like being able to toss in a little something else to mix it up.
Something short and attention grabbing that breaks me away from my usual read before starting another.
Which is why I like the pulp fiction stories by L. Ron Hubbard.
The Red Dragon was a great, short read with a hint of mystery, action, and of course a little love.
I love that the characters are never fully defined so the tall, dark, and handsome Red Dragon reminds me sort of like Zorro… or Robin Hood. He’s kind of the “steal from the rich to give to the poor” kind.
Ms. Sheldon was no lady either. She stepped right into the action without any hesitation that a typical woman may have in that era.
I really enjoyed this one. It was a fun read that I couldn’t put down.
If you are looking to mix up your reading list a little bit, this is definitely one I would recommend checking out – it’s short, fun, action packed with a bit of love (but not enough to be gushy) with a bit of handsome cowboy tossed in it!
