Once again, Jeannie Lin draws us into the world of Tang Dynasty China with a tale of love that is both sexy and sweet. Yao Ru Jiang, called River, would do anything to save her rebel brother. Even seduce his executioner. Wei Chen wants nothing less than to hunt and kill his longtime friend for betraying their commander, but he is bound by honor to bring him to justice. When he is waylaid by River's charms, will Chen lose the trail of the outlaw, or will he lose his heart? The Lady's Scandalous Night is a hot little warm-up act to her next full-length release, The Dragon and the Pearl. Despite its short length, it is long on emotion.
