An Illicit Temptation - Jeannie Lin

Romance Bingo - Historical square

 

This is a sequel to My Favorite Concubine, which I read back in May. Dao, now named An-Ming, is pretending to the Empire's princess sent to the confederation of tribesmen in the north steepe as an alliance bride to the leader of the confederation. Kwan-Li is the commander of the caravan that is to take An-Ming and gifts to the leader. Basically, this is a Tang Dynasty version of love on a road trip trope, and I loved it! Kwan-Li was a hottie and a bad ass; An-Ming was determined to take opportunity to better her station in life, although her heart belonged to the warrior (who was so more worthy than the leader). A fun ride to spend an hour on.
