This story is My Fair Lady meets Ancient China. I really enjoyed it. There were times when the story dragged a bit--my interest would be elsewhere at times or I just got bored--but I'm glad I pushed through. Yan Ling and Fei Long are great characters, Fei Long's characterization as a steely man of h...

I am feeling generous so I am giving this a three. There are some beautiful passages and scenes, but taken as a whole, there was no plot. There was a whole lot of nothing but pretty scenes after pretty scenes. Yan Ling was an okay heroine - nothing about her annoyed me, but I didn't root for her H...

This was a buddy read that I had with Melissa's Book Musings. You can find her final review of the book here. Suffice it to say that we both gave it three stars.My Fair Concubine was a riff off of My Fair Lady and honestly, this should have just been called "My Fair Tea House Girl" since there was n...

Two things about this novel caught my eye when I saw it on my Goodreads friends list feed. First, it's set during China's Tang Dynasty, around 800 AD. It's a period I have some fondness for, having imprinted as a teen on Van Gulik's Judge Dee mysteries set in that place and era. And to my mind far t...

I'm going to write a full review for Love in the Margins, but holy crap. I loved this book. The characters, the setting, the story. PERFECT! If you enjoy romance, period, read this story. Jeannie Lin is going on my must read list, like right now.

I enjoyed this one so much that I was rarely willing to stop reading long enough to take notes. That makes writing this review a little difficult, but I'll try my best. Unlike the other books by Lin that I've read, this one was light on action scenes. Fei Long had to be rescued at one point, and la...

This is one of those books that makes me get frustrated at having to attend to things like work, sleep, eating, etc.. when really I just want to read. I loved the Tang Dynasty setting of this story, and the homage to My Fair Lady as Fei Long sets about transforming a tea shop girl into a princess f...
