Cornered Tigress is another book in the Tigress Series. Shi Po, a teacher of the Taoist teachings as well as one of the greatest Tigresses, finds herself in trouble and unable to return to her household. This installment is about how her cook and one of her Tigress students, Little Pearl, is left behind to look after her house in hopes of her teacher’s return.

The story is still set in Shanghai in the 1800’s and the harshness of life for women is strongly depicted in the author’s next book. Litt

Every time the couple became intimate they were in danger for their lives - I just couldn't enjoy any of their scenes. Also, sorry if I come off narrow minded, but I didn't appreciate all the detailed scenes and descriptions of the womens' bound feet, and then they were starting to do it to a little girl. Just a squick factor for me. Personal rating to remind me not to reread this, if I could give it 0 stars I would.
