Filled with sex with little emotion. We are told their is emotion but it is not there. The sex is cold. The pair are two-dimensional. The first part is slow. Then toward the end we get a little true emotion, but it about the past not the present.
I will not bother to read this series again. I was so intriqued by the Chinese philosphy and having an Asia hero. I really wanted to love this series. It just did not delivery.

If you are keeping up with this series, its book 4. Its about a spoiled white woman (Charlotte) who has a handicap brother, a fanatically religious mother, a cheating, low-life father and a Chinese servant which all live in China. Her best friend has just run off with another Chinese man (In book 2) and left her some sacred scrolls that depict different sexual poses. Not understanding the poses, she goes to her servant and ask him to explain and show her how to perform each step. He shows her so ...more

356p Can sex be the gateway to an ancient mystical realm unheard of in the West? According to Chinese Tantrics, the answer is YES.
In Jade Lee's award-winning Tigress series, western women discover that sex is not simply for pleasure, but for religious ecstasy. Who will come out on top? The Western Tigress or the Chinese Dragon? And is the new erotic realm they discover LOVE?

I'm sorry, I just didn't like this one at all. I actually read it quite awhile ago but then it went to the back of the review pile.

It's set in Shanghai, China in the late 1880s. Charlotte is English and the daughter of a wealthy family who is living there for business. Ken Jin is Chinese and a servant to Charlotte's father.

The first page has Charlotte accidentally walking in on Ken Jin using acupuncture needles on himself and her remarking on "what a large penis he has!" What?

Charlotte goes to v

The fourth in the Tigress series, all set in the exotic locale of China, namely Shanghai.

I haven't read these in order, which is why I am occasionally confused about the characters, but for the most part it's a self-contained, straight-forward story. This particular installment deals with Charlotte Wicks, a boisterous young woman living in Shanghai, and the household's First Boy, Ken Jin.

Charlotte, frustrated by the constraints of being an Englishwoman, wants to receive an education no one of he

Jade Lee never disappoints with her stories. The characters were engaging and the Chinese culture was woven in perfectly. I love learning about China's history with Jade's books. The steamy love scenes kept me riveted to my e-reader. It was hard to put down.

the idea of 'Taoist method of going to heaven' doesn't go down well with me. i find it too fantastical. a bit far-fetched. i like the subplot written in epistolary style, through.

I like the idea of a forbidden love. Inter racial romances always incites conflict, disapproval, ostracism and sometime hatred.
The writer could have gone into detail with the difficulties such a romance would have experienced. Especially white society's response to an Oriental Man of that class touching a White Woman.
This crossed not only the class barrier but also the colour barrier during a time when society was less tolerant than they are today.
I like the idea that they still ended up toge

I liked it because it had an Asian male as hero and was in a culture/time period unusual for me in romance. But at times I thought the heroine's attitude was kind of imperialistic. The plot jumped around quite a bit. But love scenes were excellent. Both hero and heroine were alive. Some great insights into a new culture. Also kudos, for having a secondary character who was handicapped.
DNF - What can I say? They both sounded like idiots. The "spiritual" talk was way less interesting and spiritual than in other books in this series and the social and cultural implications seem to have disappeared entirely.

Nothing like a good, smutty romance novel.
Quite different for a romance novel!
