By Girl Friday Reader VINE VOICE on March 16, 2005
Format: Mass Market Paperback
The combination of a Chinese setting and the late Victorian time period made White Tigress a must read for me, and surprisingly, the book more than lived up to my expectations. Firstly, I really, really loved how author Lee did not have the heroine, Lydia, see the hero, Ru Chan, as "he was chinese, with slanted eyes and yellow skin." I tend to stay away from interracial romances because most of the time, the authors feel the need to constantly remind the reader that one of the characters isn't white. So Lee recieved an automatic thumbs up from me. Regarding the rest of the story, it was luscious, very sensual and the relationship between the protagonists was very realistic. I enjoyed the elements of Shanghai, as well as the religious and cultural differences between Lydia and Ru Chan that weren't used as a chance for the author to step atop a soap box. If you are looking for an erotic, rich read that isn't your run of the mill historical romance between two mature adults, White Tigress is for you.

Interesting premise...Didn't like it, though. I can see why it would appeal to a lot of women, but I guess I have some serious mental blocks when it comes to certain themes because when it came down to it, I really couldn't get invested in this couple and therefore I ended up skimming to the end.

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.

I loved the first forty percent of this book. Maybe it's just me, but there was something really HOT about Lydia's captivity to Ru Shan. Then other things happened that ruined the hotness for me. (Yes, that's vague, but I don't want to give spoilers.) Subsequent events seemed a bit implausible and some of the chemistry dissipated. Others might appreciate her change in circumstance more than me. I'm a little twisted. Having said that, the mythology was somewhat interesting. Prepare yourself now, though, because you are going to read euphemistic terms like "jade dragon", "cinnabar gate", and "yang fire" over and over and over again. And then there's the crayzay ending. Sigh. I wish I would have been prepared for the super-fantastical aspect of the ending. Had I seen it coming, it wouldn't have been the eye-rolling experience that it was.

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.

When I got this freebie from Kindle I did not know it was an Erotic Romance. Not that I still would not have picked it up, it's just that I was rather shocked when I started reading. My shock soon gave way to a rather bored feeling when the story just seemed to stagnate and slow down. I was almost ready to put it into the "Did Not Finish" collection folder but I persevered and ended up reading until 5am. The story took off like a gunshot and I could not put it down.

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.

I have read other works by this author, but none have struck me with their originality as this one did. It's my understanding that this is the first of a series and I may just have to pick this series up because the content, characters and settings were something I had not explored much before and rarely in a romance. The examination of the history of Chinese/British relations was very fascinating, the way the cultures both viewed the other as barbarians and savages. I also found the author's exploration of the path of the Tao to be very interesting, especially as it relates so much to the core of the story and the main character's search for spiritual enlightenment.

Our heroine, Lydia, sets forth several weeks earlier than planned from London, due to the death of her father, to go to Shanghai to be with her fiance and surprise him by arriving early, very much looking forward to marrying him. She's been studying Chinese with a retired missionary, but she's dismayed to find she's learned the wrong dialect for where she's landed. The captain of the ship offers her a ride and drops her off at a "boarding house" where she's given drugged tea, robbed of all her possessions and sold as a slave by the madam of the bordello.

Lydia is bought by our hero, Ruan Shan Cheng, a prosperous fabric merchant who is looking for a white woman with the right kind of energy to help balance his so that he can atone for a past bad act that haunts him and balance his energies to continue on the road of the Tao. His teacher assures him that their yin and yang are the right balance. Lydia, of course, fights him at first.
