It is in this dark world that Anna is introduced to opium. She becomes an addict through horrible circumstances. Fortunately she is courageous and is desperate to quit her addiction and escape China.
Zhi-Gang captures her and is intent upon killing her when his soul is surprisingly stirred. At first, he is truly an unlikely hero, he is arrogant and unkind and has some racial bias. Quickly, though, his character shifts as he spends time with Anna. He finds her beautiful and fascinating and he recognizes her sharp mind, strength of character, and compassion. He is not blind to her addiction and is determined that she will not touch opium again. He is exorcising his own demons and Anna's troubles remind him of his own shortcomings. Therefore, he will do everything possible to assist her in her quest to leave China.
Anna is pragmatic and resigned. She wants to live and if it means sharing her life with the Enforcer, well, she will be obliging, so she is startled to realize that he can be charming and sensitive, moreover, he is her fierce guardian, and gentle lover. She falls in love in spite of herself.
There's lots of action in this novel but the romance never gets lost. The feelings these two have for each other are so moving that I reread passages. This is by far the best of Jade Lee's Tigress series.
Anna Marie is a strong yet damaged woman. She is English but was orphaned in China. Her adopted father, who may or may not have been friends of her parents leads in her into a life of opium drug running to the point she has become so addicted to her own product that she has lost her will to live.
Zhi-Gang is the Emperor's Enforcer to rid China of this nasty drug. He kills anyone who sells or is addicted. He is also against prostitution and greed. But when he meets Anna, everything he has believed in comes to an end. He soon finds out she is second half, her yin to his yang.
Lines are crossed and everyone is the enemy. Zhi and Anna are soul mates who have decided they need each other. Through sexual nirvana they try to find peace as Anna tries not to succumb to the allure or the opium and Zhi who if it comes to it may still kill Anna for her addiction.
This is just the small insight about this story and these two individuals. If you want some heavy and emotional reading, pick up this latest by Lee.
She is an innovative storyteller that doesn't disappoint!
Burning Tigress (Leisure Historical Romance)
This book is amazing!! It is set in China and focuses on the opium trade and the ill affects of it on both the main characters, Anna and Zhi-Gang, otherwise known as The Enforcer, and the people of China. Zhi-Gang works for the Empress Dowager and his job is to destroy the drug trade. While Anna is a drug trafficker.
He is righteous and ruthless. There are plenty of scenes in the book with him killing drug dealers and addicts. He captures Anna and forces her into marriage, giving him the legal right to do whatever he wants to her.
The characters and plot development is intricate and very authentic. Anna is a very strong heroine despite having an addiction and you get to see the inner workings of a conflict-ridden hero.
Overall, I really recommend this book because of its two main characters!!
Jade Lee once again is able to spin a story showing that love can bring us to heaven.
Jade, as long as you write them, I'll read them. Keep them coming.
