More About the Author
A USA Today Bestseller, Jade has been scripting love stories since she first picked up a set of paper dolls. Ball gowns and rakish lords caught her attention early (thank you Georgette Heyer), and her fascination with the Regency began. She's just embarked on a new Regency series, RAKES AND ROGUES. Her love of romance extends to the present day, too.
KATHY LYONS is Jade's alter ego! She's Jade's lighter, contemporary half. Kathy writes sexy stories of love in today's twisted world! She loves the faster pace of category books and that her humor can really let fly. She leaves the dark, tortured love stories to Jade.
If you're wondering where Katherine Greyle comes in, she's Jade's first persona. Sweet, funny, and with a love of all things Regency, Katherine started publishing back in the 1900s. (She won't say how long ago!) But never fear, the romantic soul is the same whether it's Jade, Katherine, or Kathy!
So if you love that special feeling when two people just fit, then contact her through her website www.JadeLeeAuthor.com or www.KathyLyons.com She's also on social media at Facebook - JadeLeeBooks and Twitter - JadeLeeAuthor.

The setting is Shanghai, 1897.The main character Lydia wants to surprise her fiance' by showing up at his door. She falls prey to trickery and winds up being sold as a slave to Ru Shan who wants her for her yin. Which is where it gets a little...weird. Yin in this context means (as I am understanding it) female sexual energy. He promises that he will let her go, with her virginity in tact, if she does as he says so that he can extract her yin. Thus follows a muddled series of somewhat erotic/interesting/disturbing encounters. Personally, submissive females tend to irritate me. I couldn't get into that.
Whether you like this book or not depends on taste. For me, it was minimally romantic and erotic.
See, I said I was torn. :) I liked parts enough to read it in an afternoon, but other parts make me unsure if I want to continue the series. I probably will, though.
The setting is Shanghai in the late 1800's and it is brought to life by author Jade Lee. The customs, the misogynistic Chinese men, the equally misogynistic English men, the differences in attitudes of Western and Eastern women, the class differences in China and the culture all are illuminated by this accomplished author. She shows the deep seated, racist bias that existed between Westerners and Easterners, each viewing the other as barbarians.
The sex is Tantric to a strong degree and actually the relationship of the H/h is strongly based on connecting through sensual stimulation. That the heroine could love her slave master is something that is quite understandable in this novel.
I highly recommend this book to those who are not offended by explicit, sensual sex scenes.

Sensual and full of sex mixed with pleasure scenes. I have never read a book quite like it.
I did not understand all of it. The experience was enlightening.
more like a 3.5. I didn't hate or love this story.
This was definitely different. A different outlook on sex and religion.
