Of the three books I have read by this author, this one is my favorite. She delves into the story quickly and paints a picture of China that I can really envision and appreciate. The romance begins within the first few pages, yet isn't in your face. Just the way I like it. And when the heroine, Jin-mei, methodically uncovers the treachery in her family, I cheered. I feel Yang, the hero, should have suffered a bit more before winning the affections of Jin-mei, but I am just someone who loves a battle of the sexes. Jin-mei really gets her say in the end, and I was right there with her. The author wraps up the plot with a very satisfying twist and a riveting fight scene. Please note, I usually hate any fight scene. Fun read that I found palette-cleansing due to the unique setting.

Betrayed on his Wedding Night Boa Yang’s fortunes are in steep decline. Following a failed assassination attempt on a powerful Warlord, he seeks help from a fellow conspirator, Magistrate Tan. Discovered in a compromising situation, Gin-mei is forced to marry. As the daughter of Magistrate Tan she always expected an arranged marriage and is pleased her groom is Boa Yang. She’s been captivated by the smile of her father’s business associate for years. When Gin-mei learns her father is corrupt and her husband was not killed on their wedding night, she flees her father’s household to follow Boa Yang. Seeking aid from his network of friends – including smugglers and thieves – they travel deep into the forest. It’s an adventure of discovery for husband and wife, the cost and value of friendship, and the crooked path to justice. This story follows the excellent adventure in The Sword Dancer while also reading well as a separate story. This dip into the world of 9th century China is an excellent escape from the hustle and bustle of modern day.
