I enjoyed this book. A different kind of romance novel because it explored what happens to an English boy, Jacob, who is stranded in China when his family is killed by bandits. He is a young man now returned to England by orders of the Abbot of the Buddist monastary in China who took him in as an orphaned boy. He tries to learn who hired the bandits in the fight over the title between his father and uncle. He must learn to accept his past and claim a future for himself. In the midst of this struggle, he is reaquainted with his true love. Very interesting read.

Interesting read, I really enjoyed it. Think Kung Fu meets Regency England. Lots of conflict - starting with Chinese monks interrupting a very proper Ton wedding [an arranged marriage between the heroine and future Earl of Warhaven]. One of the monks steps up claiming to be the CORRECT groom, the Earl of Warhaven. [Fighting ensues which the monk wins handily].

Jacob was raised in China in a monastery after his parents and sister were murdered by order of someone in England. Sent by the Abbot to confront his past before he can claim the future of becoming a monk, and driven by a desire to find the murderers of his family, ways of life clash. Cousins come to blows over the claim to the title and the bride. The heroine's expectations of what her life should be and must be collide. The hero's expectations of what his life should be and must be are in conflict.

A lot of philosophy in this one - I found it very appealing and very out of the ordinary.

I skipped the whole middle section of the book - read about a third and then read the last chapter or two. Just didn't keep me interested.

I enjoy all of Jade Lee's offerings and found these books quite nice. They are very different from what I am used to but once I started reading them I could not stop. I hope you will enjoy them as much.
