I've loved romance novels since...like forever. I read across most subgenres of romance. I also write fantasy/paranormal and new adult romance.
I saw that Jeannie Lin/Liliana Lee was offering this series for free this week and I read the first one in one sitting. Gripping and sexy.
Princess Shanyin lives in a tumultuous world. Instead of fighting it, she indulges herself with her male harem. (Yay!!) But then she sees Yuan, a handsome aristocrat. She wants him more than she's ever wanted anyone else and he wants nothing to do with her. The tension between Shanyin and Yuan was crazy hot. Yuan is noble and good--totally irresistible to her. I was dying for them to get together.
