Overview

His family slaughtered in far-off China, young Jacob Cato finds sanctuary in a Xi Lin temple. There he heals and learns to be strong.

Now, Jacob wishes to join his care-takers as a full member of the temple and is told he must first return to his homeland and make peace with his English inheritance.

At Evelyn Stanton’s lavish wedding, the bald-headed Chinese monk striding down the center aisle is shocking. Watching that man dispatch three groomsmen, unarmed, then learning he is the long-lost heir to the Earldom of Warhaven and the new groom, is even more so.

But Evelyn Stanton isn't the typical blushing bride. A fully realized woman, she isn't about to marry the very non-English Jacob Cato just because she was betrothed to him when she was six.

At the sight of the very beautiful and very English Evelyn Stanton, Jacob's body burns with an unexpected passion as the past he thought forgotten takes new form. The murderer who slaughtered his family and left him for dead will pay. His lawful English heritage will be claimed and he will have the woman who is rightfully his.

    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!

    A superb historical romance

    Evelyn Stanton is about to marry the Earl of Warhaven when the ceremony is interrupted by a Chinese monk. He walks down the aisle claiming he is the legitimate earl. Jacob Cato says his family was murdered in China, but he survived because monks gave him sanctuary in a temple.-------------- Before he can join the order, Jacob must avenge the deaths of his family by exposing and killing those who paid the assassins. To do this he must become the earl of Warhaven so he can enter the otherwise barred rooms of the Ton for the killers hide behind those doors. Whereas other are skeptical of his claim, Evelyn believes him and says so. As they begin to fall in love, Evelyn's kindness begins to teach Jacob he can walk a different path other than vengeance to attain nirvana like a lifetimes walk with Evelyn at his side.----------------- Jacob is the key to this superb historical romance as he feels pulled by two cultures. He feels Chinese inside having spent a ¿lifetime¿ with local monks, but needs his English heritage to ¿cleanse¿ his soul by avenging his family. On top of his confusion, Evelyn gets inside his heart. With some suspense on and off throughout, Jade Lee provides a wonderful refreshing tale of the DRAGON EARL who chooses love over hate to the delight of the monks who gave him tender care when he needed it.------------ Harriet Klausner

    Trying too hard?..

    There have been sucessfull combinations of Regency England and the Orient but I don't think this belongs to that group. For a writer that writes Oriental based fantasy, her handling of this English Lord turned into Chinese monk turned into what seems clumsy and more based on David Carridane's Kung Fu. The English girl behavior is unbelievable. There are too many loose ends. The ending seemed more like the author was tired of writing. This is the fourth of the Rags to Riches series and if you are a fan of Regency books or Jade Lee I would encourage you to read the other three, but give this one a miss.

    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.
