    Lin's lyrical writing will capture you!

    In Capturing the Silken Thief, Jeannie Lin gives readers a beautiful romance set in Imperial China.

    Cheng is a scholar studying for the Imperial exams to create a better life for his family back home in the province.

    Jia is an indentured pipa player searching to find a way to buy her freedom.

    Through a case of mistaken identity the two are brought together in the search for the journal of Xue Lin, which Jia believes is the key to her freedom.

    While working together, Cheng and Jia form an unbreakable bond, and each try to move heaven and earth to help the other find their dreams.

    Jeannie Lin’s lyrical writing captures a strong heroine and an honest hero as they work to better their lives. By the end of this short novella the happily ever after feels real and the reader can walk away knowing the characters are completely satisfied.

    CAPTURED a total drama fanfic ch. 2

    (Again, thanks for the input and the support) <p> Scott's Pov <br> Where was she? Courtney had been here minutes ago, but then she walked into the cabin and disappeared. It made my skin tingle. I walked over to the first people I saw, Gwen and the surfer girl, Brigette. <br> "Hey, have you two seen Courtney anywhere? It's not like I'm worried that she's gone or anything just-" <br> Brigette interrupted me, "sorry, I haven't seen her," she looked at Gwen, " maybe she's with Duncan, he disappeared too." <br> "Did someone say disappeared?" I turned around to face Mike and Zoey, "we can't find Cameron anywhere." <br> I heard Gwen gasp quietly as I replied, "why should I care where Bubble boy is? Back on the farm, it was great whenever someone disappeared, it meant more food for the rest of us." <br> Zoey rolled her eyes and Mike replied, "still, it's not like him to disappear like that. Duncan and Courtney too at that. Where are they?" <p> Jo's Pov <br> Faster, I had o move faster, Brick was gaining on me. <br> "Way to go, acting like a tomboy really gets you far," a sarcastic voice caught me off gaurd. <br> I stopped and glared at Noah, "what do you want book boy?" <br> He rolled his eyes, "a better nickname?" <br> I scoffed, "as if." <br> "Hey Jo!" Brick passed me, "you're going to have to try harder then that." <br> I glared at Noah, "you just cost me the race." <br> "Poor you, you're life is all downhill from here." <br> I growled, "you-" I was interrupted by a squeal. <br> "OMG! This is the first time Brick has ever beaten Jo in a race! I have to update my blog," Sierra pulled out her phone. <br> "Add this too," Cleft-chin (Trent) walked up to us, "campers are going missing. We can't find Duncan, Courtney, Cameron, or Geoff." <br> I rolled my eyes, "Dud-can, Miss CIT, Bubble Boy, and Party Animal are probably just lost. None of them are very bright." <br> "Yeah, except for Cameon and Courtney," Noah replied. <br> "Whatever, it's not like I care," I ran off, if I tried, I could still win this race. <p> Gwen's Pov <br> I pulled myself from the water just as the loudspeakers crackled on, a Chris' voice filled the air, "some of the campers are missing. Do not worry. We know where they are, and they will probably be-" he was broken of by a new voice. <br> "Like I'm going to tell you where they are, or where your precious host is." <br> The speaker shut off and I glanced at Brigette, who was wide-eyed in shock. <br> "We need to find the rest of the campers," she nodded, "now" <p> Heather's Pov <br> The group was small: Me, Brigette, Weird-Goth girl, Lindsay, Zoey, Mike, Brick, Noah, Jo, Sierra, and Trent. 20 of us this morning, 11 of us left. <p> Please rate and review! Also, I've narrowed it down: should the non-captured camper be: Mike, Brigette, Sierra, Trent, or Lindsay?

    Jeannie Lin does not disappoint with this wonderful short story

    Jeannie Lin does not disappoint with this wonderful short story about Jia, the sing song girl and Chen, the scholar, set in Imperial China. It's sensual, beautifully told and had me furiously turning the pages to see what would happen next! Plenty of action and steamy tension to satisfy everyone. It's really not often that a short story like this can leave me feeling really satisfied, but this one did. I will definitely be reading more from this author!
