This is by far one of the best historical romance I’ve ever read. I could make a long list if I were to list up what I like about this book, but I’ll keep it short and sum it up. Unlike historical romance stories that is set in Europe, this one is set in China during Tang Dynasty and it’s really something you don’t get often. The author was very descriptive about the cultural background in this story and once you flip the pages, you’d find you’ve been transported into the ancient China where there’s plenty of erotic and exotic intrigue. This book is rich in culture and creativity. Thumbs up to the author for this.

I rate this book 4 out of 5 star. A must read for everyone with a good taste for historical novel. I received an ARC of this book from Harlequin via Netgalley. I was not required to write a positive review for this book and I was not compensated in monetary ways for writing this.
