From the Publisher:
Makie Otono-Tachibana is a beautiful, talented geisha - and the deadliest swordswoman in Japan. Whether bringing pleasure or death, none can resist her talents. But even Makie cannot resist the will of the man she loves, Kagehisa Anotsu, who asks her to kill the immortal ronin, Manji, before Manji can kill him. And so, the man who gave up his right to die must face the woman who gave up her right to dream.
