This is the second novella in the Princess Shanyin series, so new readers are right in the middle of the story arc. Shanyin is stranded in the Chinese countryside with two of her former slaves who have plans in which she would play major roles, not all to her liking. So she runs away and ends up the slave of the local governor and his new wife. There is plenty of one-on-one and two-on-one action, but not much in the way of character development and I will not open a discussion regarding historic ...more

The Enslavement is the second book in the Princess Shanyin series. Although the book is best read in the order of the series, the author wrote this book in such a way that it's not imperative to read the first book to enjoy this one.

The Enslavement starts off where The Obsession left off, with Princess Shanyin running for her life after her brother's empire is taken over by her uncle. Now Shanyin must do anything in order to survive as a low income woman. Shanyin is a proud woman and even with

An exciting and fast paced erotic read!

As Princess Shanyin's brother has been assassinated and his regime topped. Shanyin has fled with two of her favored concubines. The story begins with the concubines taking control of her as she did them. However, her mind never forgets the one night she spent with Yuan, who helped her escape and then abandoned her. (or did he?)

But her mind never wanders from the man she loves. The Lord who helped the uprising against her brother. The nobleman Yuan. Who help

This story brings us deeper into a world that is full of politics and intrigue. The shift in the dynamics between the Princess and her two former slaves was interesting to see. I'm not a big fan of what she does to survive, but I can imagine that, for someone with her problems, it's probably very realistically what would have happened during those times. Yuan was not a big a presence in the beginning of this story but doesn't fail to make an appearance. I am intrigued to know the why of certain ...more

Not as good as the first. Very much a second book of a three-book arc (you know, where it just feels like a bridge between the other two books and doesn't feel like it's own story).

This book also feels quite a bit darker than the last, but not in a bad way. Very realistic for the main character and what's happening to her.

Chapter Four had a misplaced scene that really confused me until I figured out what happened. Hopefully the author fixes that soon.

Princess Shanyin’s and two of her concubines have escaped with their lives and she is learning how it feels now that her concubines take pleasure from her instead of only give it. Shanyin finally gets away from the concubines only to find herself in brothel where she is purchased as a slave. Very sexy erotic read. The story is exciting and drama filled. I am loving the series and looking forward to more.

This is the middle book in the trilogy, and suffers as such. Shanyin is on the run, staying hidden with her two favorites. There are some good sex scenes here (not as hot as the first book), but the story doesn't advance smoothly. However, since it leads to the third book, it's a good read. Note that this is available as an anthology.

This satisfied my itch for Asian menage.

3.5 - 4 stars.

Vastly different from the first book. Hot as hell, but not a lot of plot development. I hope things come together in book 3.

This is second in a series, and felt like a bridging book. I would not recommend it as a standalone. Had I not read book 1 I would have been totally lost.

The tables have turned for the Princess. Her brother's rein has fallen and she's on the run with two lovers from her harem.

This was a one sit reading short story. I liked it and it's a good continuation of the story. Very erotic.

Yeahhh lots of typical 2nd book problems, no resolution, set up for book 3. Definitely prefer book 1. Unless the spoilers for the end of book 3 is really interesting, probably not gonna finish this trilogy.
