Well, fuck, now Fei Long is truly screwed He doesn t have a sister to deliver to Khitan, but at least his sister is happy.Now, do you see why Fei Long needs a woman Enter Yan Ling.A 19 year old teahouse maid, down on her luck, hungry day in and out When the drunk Fei Long mutters I need a woman to her, what else is she to think She throws a pot of tea at him She regrets it immediately One impulsive action got her fired, and onto the streets She begs Fei Long for help, it was HIS fault that she got fired, after all Fei Long looks at herand has other ideasI have a proposal for you I know exactly what sort of proposal you mean She shook an accusing finger at him I don t care how rich you are, I was right to pour that tea on you Her step quickened Leave me alone I may not be learned or wear expensive clothes like you, but I m a respectable girl I won t dodo that That wasn t what I meantYan Ling is passably pretty She s got fire in her, a fire that his timid, demure sister lacks With enough training, her edges sharpened down, Yan Ling could pass as his sister And let s face it, a life as a royal princess in Khitan is better than a life on the street any day A ripple of pleasure ran through her, lazy and warm with promise She would never need to worry about being cold or hungry again Her back wouldn t ache from serving customers from the first light of day to deep in the night. The training is difficult and tedious It is no easy feat to be a lady, as Yan Ling soon learns For example, despite the fact that she has worked at a tea house for years, she doesn t know proper tea etiquetteAnd when you took the cup from me, you did it with one hand Had she Two hands, he went on With a slight bow of your head as you accept the cup Heaven and earth, she didn t even know how to drink tea properly She, who had grown up in a teahouse. And don t even mention the dresses, Jesus Christ How the fuck does one move properly in those things The cloth pooled around her feet as she tried to move forwards, wrapping about her ankles until he was certain she would topple Fortunately she didn t She kicked at the train, much like heaven help him one would kick a stray dog He raised a hand over his mouth Are you laughing at meYan Ling is smart, persistent She is so innocent, so eager to please She is truly grateful to Fei Long for bringing her into this whole situation For the first time in her life, she has friends, she has company, she feels needed The last weeks in the Chang household had been the happiest time she d ever known She wore the fanciest silks and ate delicious meals from painted plates and bowls.More precious than that, she had companionship True companionship that came from the time that was her ownFei Long has the fantastic Bai Shen to help her to be a lady Bai Shen may be a man, but he is an accomplished actor, and he ssnaps fingers fa bu lous than you will ever beThere are a thousand looks A hundred gestures I ve studied them all He circled his hand with a flourish The secret is to create the illusion You don t need it all Emphasise certain characteristics and the audience will believeAnd she d better succeed in all of this girly shit There s feminine honor on the line She can t be outdone by a manAnd don t forget you have one grand advantage, he said What is that He shrugged You actually are a womanTeehee.Fei Long is not absent He has been tutoring her, watching her, seeing her grow in confidence day by day He has his doubts, he has his fears There is so much responsibility on his shoulders, but Fei Long is not aloneYou don t need to thank me for anything, he said gently I should be thanking you Because we re in this together, she said uncertainly.He nodded, breathing deep TogetherAs the days go by, as they encounterchallenges to their lives, as the past catches up to them, will they ever be able to overcome their differences Will Fei Long be able to overcome his stern exterior will his need to do what s right destroy the spark of life within the woman he lovesFei Long could hear Yan Ling s laughter just over his shoulder while he sat in isolation, unable to share in it.He was the only one not in disguise that night, yet he was the one hiding. When the time comes to deliver Yan Ling to the Khitan, will he ever be able to let her go The Setting AWESOME Oh my god, if you ve ever watched a Chinese drama, you will love this book We see the city of Changan, vibrant with color Wealth was in the red banners cascading from the balconies of the wine houses and restaurants of Changan The rainbow bolts of silk in the marketplace Even the fruit piled in the stalls sparkled like jewels rosy peaches and startling pink dragonfruit with green tipped scales. There is an ample amount of detail, and the Chinese fangirl within me loved all of it From the Chinese theatres, to the street stalls, to the mansion itself and its furnishings There is no shortage of the life and color and beauty of Ancient China within these pages.Yan Ling I absolutely adore her character, and how she grows Bai Shen tells her to be a phoenix in the book, and I can see her transformation From spirited, irreverent teahouse maid, to a demure lady who could pass as a princess, we see every step of her transformation.Yan Ling starts off being completely in awe of Fei Long, and who can blame her She is no doormat, but she wants to please him, she wants to do right by him, because he has rescued her from the streets Yan Ling has so much faith in Fei Long, she completely trusts himPromise me you ll stay beside me the entire time I promise His gaze held on to her and she knew then that Fei Long wouldn t let anything happen She would do this for him So he could be proud and think well of her. Yan Ling grows, but she never becomes weak She becomes a lady, but she is never cowed Her feelings for Fei Long grows bit by bit, but she knows it is hopeless, because of where it will all leadAh, of course Her throat tightened around the words The grand scheme, above all elseWhatever romantic aspirations Yan Ling has is completely solidified by reality Yan Ling is not a silly girl, she knows her dream is just a dream He felt nothing None of the unwanted fire within her Silly girl, why would heIn the end, we will see clearly that Yan Ling hasstrength and bravery within her than we would ever have expected.Fei Long A truly admirable character He is stern and seriously because he has to be He is never cruel He strives to do everything correctly in life He is such an honorable man So honorable that he could never allow himself to take advantage of his situation to compromise a girl whose life he holds in his handsI think of you, Yan Ling,than I should A wave of longing struck him When I see your face at night, I don t see the tea girl or the elegant lady I only see you If I acted on these feelings, if Iif I took what I wanted, it would be an abuse of authority You re under my care That was what I meant when I spoke of our positions I won t treat you like that His mouth twisted As if you re here for my pleasureHe sees Yan Ling transform day by day, to be better for him He feels guilty for making her lose her inner spark When she walked into a room, he could no longer see any remnants of the tea girl he d first met Occasionally, he would see her doubled over in laughter with Dao or Bai Shen and the sight always sent an inexplicable ache through him She never laughed that way in his presence.Yan Ling was exceeding all his expectations and he hated it. BAI SHEN WHY IS HIS NAME CAPITALIZED BECAUSE HE S FUCKING AWESOME, THAT S WHY Oh, sure, the other characters in the book are awesome, but you don t know fabulous until you ve met Bai Shen.He is not gay He is an actor in Ancient China, which means that he has to play female characters And damn, does he do it well When trouble comes, when a girl doesn t know how to act feminine, who s Fei Long gonna call If Yan Ling was to become a princess, or at least pretend to be one, they would need to transform her He needed someone who was a master at deception. Meet Bai Shen The gentleman was already seated on the couch His robe was adorned with a brilliant border of maroon brocade and his topknot was affixed with a straight silver pin He had narrow, handsome features, with dark eyebrows that accented his face in two bold lines. And what s he gonna do He tapped his chest twice Bai Shen is one of the premier actors of the Nine Dragon theatre troupe and that, dear miss, is not a pretty face you re making I can see why Fei Long needs my helpOH YEAH.He s not only gorgeous, he s not only a fabulous acrobatic actor, Bai Shen is also well versed in the matters of the heartBe careful, Fei Long, Bai Shen said sombrely I m being very careful I m taking every precaution when dealing with Tong With a sigh, Bai Shen turned around to continue surveying the perimeter You fool, he muttered That s not what I was talking about at allREAD THIS BOOK

hand wave, without ever having to really worry about the ramifications of not accomplishing that task Honour is spoken of, but it is always a little tongue in cheek Again, for the most part our culture doesn t hold our honour, and that of our family members and all who associate with us, on a tightrope where one misstep will send us plummeting into the shame of disgrace Eastern cultures do, even today In China, family honour is ANYTHING but a joke Your family and associates ARE judged by your actions And while, in some ways, that judgement has becomelax over the years it is very much still present I have a number of friends, male and female alike, who were born and raised in China and I have had numerous discussions about this About the different ways you can mark your family name, ways that seem a little crazy to my western upbringing The reason I mention this is because this is one of the fundamental differences between western and eastern culture and it plays a very large role in My Fair ConcubineYou will do well His tone wasof a command than a comfort We will just have to work harder I have faith in you, Yan Ling She nodded Her palms grew damp and she wiped them against her robe when he wasn t looking The only thing that could make heranxious than Fei Long s disapproval was his trust This IS a love story, but it is a love story ensconced in the protection of family honour and duty When our love interests first meet it is in a small tea house where Fei Long s younger sister, Pearl, has run off with her lover Fei Long has come to save the family honour by forcing her home where she is promised to another man The Chang family has been bestowed a great honour and duty, Pearl is to be elevated to a Princess and wed in Khitan to ensure peace with their neighbours Not an overly romantic notion but one of great HONOUR However, when Fei Long crashes into the lovers room and Pearl beseeches him to understand that she is IN LOVE, he relents, allowing the lovers to run off together Enter Yan Lin, a tea girl at this very tea house She serves him tea which grows cold as he worries himself over how he will save his family honour now that his sister has gone He makes a rather rude statement about needing a woman to Yan Ling and ends up with a face full of cold tea She is promptly fired and our journey truly begins when Fei Long discovers that if he can make this saucy tea girl into a Lady he may just have an answer to both of their predicaments It is not unheard of for a woman to pretend to be of royal blood in order to be wed in such a way, in fact his sister was being elevated to Princess for this very purpose The Chinese culture is a culture of nuances Statements not made but implied and a noble woman knows all these nuances The way to move in a garment which is several lengthsthan truly required to cover a body while looking both elegant and regal The turn of one s head, the movement of a hand, whether your eyes are downcast or half cast these ALL have meanings This is where I have a little difficulty with My Fair Concubine, I find it pretty difficult to believe that Fei Long would truly believe that the learning of all these noble woman customs, not to mention reading and writing, could be accomplished in a few short months However, he IS desperate so I allowed it Yan Ling begins a rigorous regime of learning how to transform from a lowly tea girl to a noble woman and princess She has several teachers along the way, one of them being the actor, Li Bai Shen, renowned for his portrayal of women in the local theatre group I love Bai Shen, probably for the most part because he is so damned inappropriate This is a love story that moves quietly, like the shift of an arm in layers of silk, it whispers along under the surface growing slowly until those small movements are all you are watching for It is a love story told in nuances, a glance here, a brush against skin there It is all so subtle and understated And then the end happens with all the elegance of an untrained child bashing the keys of a piano It lacked a certain grace and style which I had come to love throughout the rest of the novel and for that alone I am deducting half a starThere is a balance inherent in the art of writing, of Sh His voice was quiet, stroking gently over her skin Defined rules about how to write each character Every stroke has its place and positionThank you for buddy reading this one with me, Heatherdoll, even though you liked it a great deal less than I did Now it is my turn to beseech you, my lovies Does anyone know who that staggeringly handsome gentleman on the cover is

    Buddy read with Karly on June 3rd 6th I can t recall ever reading a Harlequin before, but from what I gather they don t have much depth or characterization to speak of From reading another review, it seems this was one of the better Harlequins as far as those things go However, when it comes to romance, this was not my cup of tea.I CANNOT like a romance if it doesn t sweep me away, and this one didn t I felt the writing was too stilted and even awkward at times I didn t get a good picture of Buddy read with Karly on June 3rd 6th I can t recall ever reading a Harlequin before, but from what I gather they don t have much depth or characterization to speak of From reading another review, it seems this was one of the better Harlequins as far as those things go However, when it comes to romance, this was not my cup of tea.I CANNOT like a romance if it doesn t sweep me away, and this one didn t I felt the writing was too stilted and even awkward at times I didn t get a good picture of the character s emotions.One of the reasons for this was that some of Fei Long and Yan Ling s early interactions didn t actually happen on the page The interactions were talked about, but we don t get to see the interactions themselves, which would have been crucial for building the relationship, especially so early on in the novel One example was Fei Long and Yan Ling having discussed a poem We didn t see this happening, but Fei Long talks about the incident with Bai Shen This would have been fine if we had seen BOTH interactions and not just one I feel that leaving certain scenes like this out failed to establish a foundation for the romance.This wasn t a bad book, the hero wasn t an ass, and the heroine wasn t annoying It just wasn t my thing.EDIT I forgot to mention the three sex scenes crammed into less than 15 pages, after which there wasn t even 20 pages of story left This obviously didn t work for me

    Marvellous Pygmalion story with a pig headed nobleman miserably locked in a desperate struggle to save the family name and honour, which requires him to send his sister off to be a barbarian princess, which requires turning a tea girl into a lady because the sister has run away It all unfolds delightfully with loads of period feel and a really well delineated culture and background.

    Romance novels and I have a complex relationship As a feminist, I can barely stand the jealousy, possessiveness and all around stifling control of the ultra masculine heroes Nor can I stand the virginal, accepting compliance of the ultra feminine heroines Almost everything about the plot will irritate me the near rapes, the inevitable interjection of the hero s former lover and the total and utter miscommunication that begins at page 3 and ends at page 83 crush my soul a littleeach t Romance novels and I have a complex relationship As a feminist, I can barely stand the jealousy, possessiveness and all around stifling control of the ultra masculine heroes Nor can I stand the virginal, accepting compliance of the ultra feminine heroines Almost everything about the plot will irritate me the near rapes, the inevitable interjection of the hero s former lover and the total and utter miscommunication that begins at page 3 and ends at page 83 crush my soul a littleeach time.And yet, as a reader, I adore them They are light and fluffy when I need something to be light and fluffy I can read as much or as little as I like Often, I ll skip entire chapters or paragraphs and feel no guilt, because that s how I like to read these books and I don t think that will change.My usual romance novel is a category I have coined The Sexually Objectified Scotsmen series books that always feature bare chested highlanders on the cover, luminous nipples and all I tend to read only historical fiction I say historical because the books, while accurate with their dates of battles and Gaelic never mention body hair and their heroes, who seem to have bedded every woman in the country, have never once suffered from any venereal disease.And so, here you see my history of romance novels has been alarmingly white, heteronormative and same y Enter My Fair Concubine by Jeannie Lin, as recommended by my friend Anya Thanks, girl Fei Long Chang is desperate to preserve his family s honour and has enlisted a lost tea girl to do it But first, he needs to turn her into a princess in order to do so Enter Li Bai Shen, a camp, gay actor with a proclivity for sass and snark that at times, feels a little forced, but I love him regardless Yan Ling, the peasant girl, learns to read and write under Fei Long Chang s patient tutelage and I actually really appreciated this part of the novel I loved that Yan Ling is empowered and learns skills that enrich her world so much I love that Fei Long Chang is a gentleman he is masculine without being aggressive, he is articulate and unreadable without being cryptic, he is authoritative without being totalitarian The most enjoyable part of this book for me was discovering that the many painful tropes of romance weren t a given there were no near rapes marital or otherwise , no ex lover to concoct a jealousy so foul I nearly put the book down and no frightened virgin who had no idea what was in store for her because her partner didn t care to tell her Instead, there are calligraphy lessons that are rife with tension and a hero who struggles with honour over what his heart wants It s lovely, it s sweet, the start is slow but it s worth it in the end However, I will say if you re looking for a super erotic romance novel, this is not the one for you unless pale gasps of wrists are your thing I m just hoping that all of Lin s characters aren t the same, which tends to be a regular feature of romance in general But I adored this Thank you Jeannie Lin, for showing me that reading a romance novel doesn t mean I have to set my feminist self aside

    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 no concubine in this book besides for a couple minutes appearance, and she s not the main focus of this book Ahem Excuse the rant I am going to echo Melissa s Book Musings here with the fact that I 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 no concubine in this book besides for a couple minutes appearance, and she s not the main focus of this book Ahem Excuse the rant I am going to echo Melissa s Book Musings here with the fact that I found the heroine, Yan Ling just okay I would also add in a seriously bored by her too The hero Chang Fei Long I wasintrigued by, but who wouldn t love the Tang Dynasty version of Henry Higgins.Plot is that because Fei Long has decided to not force his sister to come back and be wedded as per Imperial decree, he needs someone to take her place So he of course sets his sights on the tea house girl who threw tea on him just go with it I mean you suspend your belief when you read romance, but in this case I really had to suspend my belief The whole plan make Yan Ling over in order to pass for someone who was brought up learning proper etiquette along with writing and the proper way in which to walk and talk was hare brained as hell I was just wondering how they were going to pull it off So instead of some madcap scenes, we get a lot and I do mean a lot of Ms Lin describing all of Yan Ling s lessons I felt like I was slowly being beaten to death with a palm frond I was just bored throughout anytime the book which was about 80 percent of it going into how Yan was learning how to write calligraphy or to spell and read certain words I really did love the character of Li Bai Shen an old friend of Fei Long s who is an actor who portrays women quite often in plays who is tapped to get Yan Ling to walk and move like a woman I wish we had focused on him a bitand also includedof his training, because those were the only parts that I found intriguing Other characters we don t get to see developed much, Yan Ling s current personal maid Dao and others such as Fei Long s servants Frankly I can t believe no servants anywhere would not have been gossiping about what he was trying to pull off under the Emperor s nose I thought the flow could have been improved if we hadn t focused so much on the training aspect And I can t lie, the constant stealing of glances by Yan Ling when she decides out of nowhere she has fallen for Fei Long or when Fei Long who has been right and proper the whole time, decides, screw it, he s going to run away with Yan Ling rang false The actual sex scenes took me completely out of the book, they were done well except for the whole the first time was the best time ever nonsense which I wish would die a quick death in romance books everywhere but once again didn t ring true of how right and proper Fei Long had been the entire book.I wish I could sayabout the Tang Dynasty setting I did not feel fully immersed in the culture I really wish that we had gotteninsights into other homes, tea houses, how the courts were set up, etc The ending I rolled my eyes at The simplest solution ever in order for the hero and heroine to have their happily ever after
