And next...it’s finally here...THE CONCUBINE! The second ever historical Blaze book, and wow, do I love this book! It’s set in the Forbidden City in a it-really-happened contest to marry the Emperor. So you thought we invented Who Wants to Marry a Prince? Nope. Chinese had it first with a marry the Emperor contest. My blog has information on the full history and what I changed for the book. I can give you one hint. In my book, the hero is NOT an eunuch. LOL! The back cover copy is listed below, but if you want more, I’ve got an excerpt and reviews up at my website. Romantic Times loved it (4 stars) and here’s what Fresh Fiction said: “Well known for her exotic romances, Jade Lee has spun a hot and torrid love story set against a strongly drawn background of the corrupt and powerful practices existing in the Imperial Court in 1851. The growing attraction between Sun Bo Tao and Ji Yue is captivating while Lee's solid historical research pulls you right into the forbidden places the Dutch traders crave to be. This is one exciting tale you won't want to miss!”
Okay, here’s the back cover copy for THE CONCUBINE by JADE LEE:
Requirements for being a royal consort:
- 1) Exemplify purity.
- 2) Pass all demanding tests.
- 3) Gracefully withstand petty backstabbing.
- 4) Be chaste. Very chaste.
Check to all! Chen Ji Yue is on her way to empress superstardom in nineteenth-century China. She only has to vanquish 300 rivals to bring her family great honor. Oh, and she may not find the deliciously sexy Sun Bo Tao—the emperor's best friend—at all delicious. Or sexy.
Damn. Ji Yue is in big trouble.
Because Bo Tao is definitely very sexy….
And Ji Yue is about to discover that chastity is overrated….
THAT’S IT FOR THIS MONTH! And, in case you were wondering, DRAGONBOUND is coming at the end of next month. In fact, for those of you who purchase it early, please email me and tell me where you got it! Honestly, it’s an April book, but Leisure always ships EARLY!
