MY FAIR CONCUBINE
Genre: Historical Romance, Asia
Lin has a gift for bringing the wondrous and colorful world of ancient China to readers. The history and culture of the era are beautifully bound together with a classic romance theme. Those yearning for new worlds and age-old adventures will savor Lin’s novel.
After his father’s death Chang Fei Long returns to find his family in debt and his sister, Pearl, promised as a heqin, an alliance bride to a powerful barbarian leader. The only problem is that Pearl has run off with her beloved. Fei Long finds a substitute bride in Yan Ling, a teahouse servant who loses her job thanks to him. With nowhere to go, Yan Ling accepts Fei Long’s proposition. As he teaches her the art of being a lady, Fei Long develops respect for Yan Ling — respect that turns to mutual passion. As the day of her wedding approaches, the plans of a clever maid and an audacious actor may help them find love. (HARLEQUIN, Jun., 280 PP., $6.25)
