Good read, prefer other series

If like me you loved the Qurilixen World books with its Dragon and Var shifters then you will be delighted to realise that there’s quite a few other books that connect. This was previously published under the banner of Zhang Dynasty but now that the author has decided to revisit and refresh these stories the series name is Dynasty Lords. So if you enjoy futuristic romance then these books are definitely a fascinating read. The Zhang dynasty have very unusual relatives and believe me the things that go bump in the night are very real indeed. You see they have ghosts that just refuse to go away and one in particular is about to change Prince Zhang Jins life for good ! Jin winds up compelled to announce that a would be thief is going to be his bride but is there more to Francesca then meets the eye ? Jin and his family are all about tradition as they believe a curse could end everything they have struggled to maintain. Francesca however is on a mission, a quest if you like for revenge as she promised her late master she would steal the precious Jade Phoenix the Zhangs guard so carefully. What fuels this story is the banter and undoubted chemistry that burns between this couple. Unfortunately there’s very little trust and if honest I found Jin to be a little weak. That being said I can joyfully state that a certain band of space mercenaries show up to brighten the proceedings and yes as a fan of these stories I loved seeing them go to work. I really liked Francesca, understood Jins position and absolutely adored the meddling ghosts ! This voluntary take is of an advance copy and my thoughts and comments are honest and I believe fair

Michelle Pillow - Seduction of the Phoenix: A Qurilixen World Novel (Anniversary Edition) (Dynasty Lords Book 1) Although related to the Dragon Lords and Lords of the Var books this new series (although there are some appearances of characters from those series),branches off in a whole new direction. The books feature the world of the Zhang Dynasty on the planet of Lintian. Steeped in tradition much of which has been brought with them from when they were on earth. Not only is there a family with several unmarried Princes and one Princess still unrated (the other has mated one of the Qurilixen Pirates), there are many ancestral ghosts who are there to protect their home, traditions and give opinions whether requested or not. This perfect full length novel had me mesmerized with a wonderfully detailed new world, a new culture to learn ,lovely quotes about seduction and desire, and well flushed out characters. This first book of the spinoff series is Prince Jin and Francesca’s story. Jin’s great grandfather’s ghost tricks him into claiming Francesca as his bride. Just as shocked as the Prince is the woman who has just been arrested for trying to steal the Phoenix statue, which is the heart of the Family’s strength. Jin is a Prince who observes tradition and is in general an obedient son. Despite being tricked into this claiming he is determined to go through with it, and in truth there is something about this willful independent skilled “ninja” woman that has captured his attention, and perhaps a bit of his heart (and his body seems to be in agreement as well). Francesca history is a long one and it hasn’t been an easy road for her. On a mission to exact revenge on this family she is more than shocked to find herself about to be tried as a thief or married to a Prince. On top of all this she becomes drawn to Jin both physically and with her heart but she also has an oath to fulfill. I really loved this story it kept me swept up in its many facets that goes well beyond just a space sci-fi romance. A great start to the new spinoff which can be read as a stand alone as well -although why miss out on the other awesome books in the other series and spinoffs!

I love the Quirlixen world. Jin and his brothers go through the yearly event where all the eligible women are paraded in front of them, hoping one of the brothers will finally pick a bride. However, none of the brothers are ready for marriage. This time we've got a meddler in our midst! Now Jin, who doesnt want to shame his family, is stuck with Francesca. The lovely thief wants something they have and now there's no trust between them. However, there is plenty of chemistry! This was a great story and I loved every minute of it. Can't wait for the next one.

Seduction of the Phoenix is another enjoyable work by Michelle M. Pillow. We follow Jin, a prince in the Zhang Dynasty, who is compelled to choose Francesca, a thief, as his wife. Their story takes us on a fun and entertaining ride, culminating in a happiness that is deserved by both.

Honor Bound? On the planet of Lintian in the Imperial Palace of the Zhang Dynasty Mei's brothers the 4 Princes go through the yearly tradition of looking at all the eligible females parade through in hopes one of the princes will choose one as wife... Little do they know that none of the brothers wish to wed, but tradition is tradition and they must endure. Only this time one of their ancestors their great, great grandfather Zhang Manchu decides it's time to interfere. Zhang Jin is so not ready to wed, but the wiley old Manchu decides to take him over and chooses non other than a thief the guards are hawling in for trying to steal their most treasured artifact! Nothing can be done about it now without bringing shame to the family and Jin is the most honor bound of the brothers. What Jin didn't count on was the physical attraction that bound them, but will that be enough for the elusive thief Francesca? Read the very mysterious and intriguing story of Jin and Francesca it had me transfixed the whole time always expecting one thing and getting another...LoL I loved the journey! Ms Pillow takes us to worlds that never cease to amaze me with their traditions and passionate love.

Honor her past at the expense of her future. Claim happiness but betray her past. Two choices that can only end in guilt. What does beautiful thief Francesca choose? Prince Yin, steeped in history and tradition, seems unlikely to pick someone like Francesca as a wife when he has refused the parade of nobles that came before her. This next book in the future Ms Pillow has intrigued us with continues to compel and keep us wanting more. It's fun to revisit other characters from previous books and add new favorites for future visits. Yin and Francesca have all the chemistry working for them, but trust is harder to come by. With the past and present at odds with any relationship, can they get past it? Is there a future for them together? Can they find love? This is no easy task but reading their struggle and getting to know them has been a real reading pleasure. Ms Pillow never disappoints and she certainly didn't this time. I was provided an ARC for an honest review.

I bought this after reading the sample. The sample seemed so promising but most the whole book was sex scenes and there really was no plot. Where the couples should have talked or done ANYTHING else they jumped in the bedroom. It has the potential to be a good book but it fell flat with so little description to the actual plot of the story. The end especially was bad since it seemed to unrealistic. Unfortunately I would recommend people not to read this unless you like little to no plot line.
