    Unique Hot Historical

    Jade Lee has penned another unique hot historical for readers to savor with THE DRAGON EARL 'Dorchester Leisure/Sept. 2008' which promises to be the beginning of a terrific new historical series set in Regency England. In the English countryside it¿s Evelyn Stanton¿s twenty-fourth birthday and also her wedding day. She¿s to marry her childhood friend, Christopher, who will one day be the Earl of Warhaven. However, as the wedding ceremony is about to begin a Chinese monk dressed in a hooded robe bursts into the church with his entourage and interrupts them. When he throws back his cowl they are astonished to see the Chinaman is really a white man! He is obviously also an Englishman when he questions if Evelyn and Christopher are married yet. When the minister tells him ¿Not yet¿, the monk declares himself to be Evelyn¿s betrothed and the rightful Earl of Warhaven! Jie Ke aka Jacob Cato has waited years to go back to England to declare his heritage and get revenge on whoever was responsible for killing his sister and parents as they traveled in China when he was a child. During those years, he has known unspeakable horror and loneliness but has found a family of sorts as a monk in training at the Xi Lin Temple that taught him self-discipline and martial arts. It¿s through this training that he was able to earn enough money in pugilist fights to travel to England with his faithful Chinese friends and fellow monk, Zhi Min. Before Jie Ke can take his final vows and join the monastery he must find inner peace and realizes he can¿t do this unless he returns to England to confront his family. Instead when he sees Evelyn all grown up, he questions what he really wants out of life. Evelyn is very upset at first when her wedding to Christopher is ruined by Jacob. In fact, Jacob thought long dead is so greatly changed they¿re not even sure it¿s him despite their repeated questions that he answers correctly. However, when Jacob returns home with them, Evelyn is intrigued with this exotic stranger. When she starts meeting Jacob nightly in the moonlit garden for lessons in lovemaking she starts to question if Christopher or Jacob is the right man for her. Add to this the puzzle of who caused the deaths of Jacob¿s family and you have a truly unique, passionate and winning Regency in THE DRAGON EARL!

    Something New

    This is the first book I have read by this author not sure if it her only book. The story was good overall but there were some very slow parts. The Englishman turned monk comes back to claim his heritage so he can become a full monk. He ends up falling in love with the girl that he's not supposed to. Overall I would say it's a great book for a hard core romance fan.
