My Fair Concubine - Jeannie Lin 4 stars

Very solid historical romance with a fascinating setting; China during the Tang Dynasty. The romance is subtle and subdued, boiling under the surface of Yan Ling and Fei Long's interactions. Class differences and Fei Long's heightened sense of honor make their romance forbidden. Their attraction is quickly stifled, as Fei Long teaches the former tea girl how to be a princess. Though the pacing is leisurely, I enjoyed my visit with these characters.
