5.0 out of 5 stars This is Jade Lee's Best Tigress yet June 10 2007
By Melissa - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Anna Thompson is a flawed but wonderful heroine, she is an opium addict in late nineteenth century China. In fact, the reader's first glimpse of Anna is during her opium high. Later Anna is on the run from her adopted father, an opium dealer, and the Empress's Enforcer, Zhi-Gang, who becomes both Anna's kidnapper then savior. Zhi-Gang is determined to rid China of opium and the trafficking of women which is the preferred method of payment for drug dealers. These are profound issues to tackle in a romance and Jade Lee portrays man's depravity and greed with real depth.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Remarkable Romance and Opium Addiction in 19th Century China (A Grade) June 20 2007
By Katie Babs - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Jade Lee has written a superior novel with a remarkable hero and heroine who have internal strife and secrets galore. But not until these two learn to trust each other, do they finally become whole. This book is not your happy go lucky romance. The hero tries multiple times to kill the heroine as she is also an opium addict in 19th century China.
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Loving it Jan. 27 2013
By Mao - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
It's so hard to find a really good romance book involving anything oriental. So when I came across this book and read some 5 star reviews for it, I decided to give it a shot. I read a sample of it first and could not resist being drawn into it. So I hurriedly purchased the full version through kindle.
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!!

Growing up in China as an orphan, Anna grows up in a convent. Her "adopted father" got her hooked on opium and she is now on the run trying to get away from him. Zhi-Gang is going ofter the opium dealers. But when they meet, he can't go through with killing her. Through their trials and tribulations, Anna and Zhi-Gang find heaven in each other's arms.

Jade Lee once again is able to spin a story showing that love can bring us to heaven.
