**Jeannie Lin's novella introducing the pleasure quarter known as the North Hamlet, the setting of The Lotus Palace***
Tang Dynasty China, 823 A.D.
Musician Jia needs a valuable book of poems by a famous courtesan to buy her freedom...and she believes Luo Cheng has taken it. Her attempt to steal the book from him fails, but the tall and powerful scholar unexpectedly offers to help her quest! But when they finally find the book--and the arousing poems and artwork inside--Jia's longing for freedom is replaced with a new kind of desire for Cheng....
It was good, but not as good as the book I read by her. That one was really good. I think the problem for me is that China is so fascinating, cos how any romances do I read set in China...that would be none at all. So I want to experience all of that. And with a longer running romance so it does not become all too sudden.
Still it was good cos it was still China during the 800s. Strange and new, I loved it.
She needs a book, he needs to study. They fall in lust. The end. Now I want to read those full lenght books.

Alice Savage needs an alpha – any alpha – to prevent her pack from being usurped by the lecherous Roscoe. As a last resort, she signs up for the Midnight Liaisons dating service, never expecting that she’d find the alpha she seeks. She certainly didn’t expect Jackson Wilder, a laid back, sexy-as-sin outsider who claims to be an alpha.
But Alice has a problem that most female wolf alphas don’t — she’s a virgin. And the female alpha of a wolf pack always belongs to a male alpha. Luckily for her, Jackson’s utterly gorgeous and willing to take things slow. But is he alpha enough to help her save her pack…or is he too easy-going to be the man she needs?
This is a novella from the Midnight Liaisons series. Alice needs an alpha. She is a strong alpha herself but wolves needs two alphas and an idiot asshat is trying to get in on the action. So what else to do than to try a dating agency and find a cooler alpha.
In comes Jackson, sexy sweet Jackson. And tension grows as Alice both want him and wants to take it easy as she is a virgin.
It was a nice novella that never felt too short. I do like this series.
