    1. These are so fun! China over a thousand years ago. Romance, danger, fun! There is nothing like it. I have said it before, but yes what I like the best is the fact that it is set in China. It's different. It's fresh. It's good.In this one former rebel leader Yang is on the run. He is seen with a woman. Her dad gets mad and boom! They are married. But Jin-mei does not mind. She wants more from life, and he is hot. But then there is the whole I am on the run, I can't have a wife thing.Sure they are [...]


    2. First of all, let me just appreciate the beauty that is the cover of this book. I have not come across a prettier cover in recent times and I spent quite a bit of time on gazing at the cover before and even while I was reading the story as it unfolded. Jeannie Lin is an author who has a unique voice amongst the numerous authors who write historical romances. Her books take place in China, in the Tang Dynasty period and I have loved each and every single book of hers that I have read in the serie [...]


    3. I love each new book this author writes in her Tang Dynasty series that just makes Ancient China and its people come to life for me. It doesn't hurt that there is mystery, adventure, passion and colorful interesting characters. In this case, there is a tie to a previous book, The Sword Dancer, that is great for fans of that story, but this one can still be read as a standalone.The story opens with Bao Yang still on a quest for vengeance against a ruthless warlord even after Yang's assassination [...]


    4. I loved everything else- Tang dynasty China, adventure and a slow romance- but the hero. I get what the author was trying to do, show him through Jinmei's eyes as she gets to know this mysterious husband. But it doesn't help that the reader thinks of him as nothing better than a common smuggler for nearly half the book. Jeannie Lin being what she is, the book is peppered with gems like-It was madness, this fight. All wooing was in part a con game, except for this, when he was without words to ne [...]


    5. I was worried after Sword Dancer that I would be disappointed again but this book was delightful. The chemistry between the characters and the gorgeous scenery really drew me in.


    6. I had no idea there were historical romances set in China! What!? And well done, too! THANK YOU! I'm going to have to check out the other ones!


    7. I was intrigued to find this category romance in the historical romance genre set in ancient China! WOW! I have heard Jeannie Lin's books being described as "Panda Express" which I take it to mean cheesey Chinese style according to Western stereotypes of what's Chinese. Being Asian/ Chinese I was kind of apprehensive yet how can I not give it a go?For once it's a historical romance set not in America or England!Overall I liked this but I am really judging it as a category romance. It is a shorte [...]


    8. I love Jeannie's books. Just wish she would put a pronunciation key in the back of the book for the characters names. I hate not being sure how to pronounce them.


    9. This book was received free via Netgalley for an honest review. _My review is below.I love Jeannie Lin's books, her characters, her rich depictions of historical times and places. _I was disappointed a bit in this book. _I didn't read The Sword Dancer, which I think had a lot to do with my issues. _I often got the sense that I should see something more than what I was, and I'm pretty sure that the backstory was in The Sword Dancer._Bao Yang is a salt merchant, a salt smuggler, and utterly dedica [...]

    11. As uncharitable as this seems, I'm only going to give this book a 3 star rating. No more than that. You know how there's always this one book that you had been looking forward to reading but found it disappointing? You can probably add this book to that list. Where to start? I first discovered Jeannie Lin around 2013-2014. Being Chinese myself, I was delighted to finally find an author who wrote genre fiction in English, set in ancient China. I started with the Sword Dancer, then quickly moved o [...]


    12. Jeannie Lin does it again. Honestly, I was not expecting to enjoy this as much as I did.I love reading about the Tang Dynasty. There is something about that time and the way its traditions are upheld that is so fascinating. It stills carries on to modern day. Family and honour. Gosh, I love how the author focuses on family for all her characters. The emphasis cannot be denied. The bonds of family will carry us through the toughest times. I like that Jin Mei was someone the reader could relate to [...]

    15. This was amazing. I loved Jeannie Lin's previous book in the series and was thrilled to pick up A Dance with Danger. While it stands alone well, I did also enjoy the chance to see a few earlier characters and be assured they were still continuing happily on.A Dance with Danger is about Bao Yang, who's in the run after a failed assassination attempt on a powerful military leader. While trying to regroup, he ends up accidentally well, married. Jin-mei's been attracted to Yang for ages but never an [...]

    17. I enjoyed the historical setting and strong characterisations. A well-off young lady in medieval China is accidentally compromised by standing in the shade with a man. Her father insists they marry. But treachery comes from a point where it is least expected and the new husband vanishes, believed killed. The young wife decides to strike out alone, keeping secret that she believes her husband, a rebel, is still alive.

    19. I would like to thank Jeannie Lin for providing me with an advance copy of this book!"This isn't what you wanted, is it? Jin-mei asked yang beneath her breath"(33)If your looking for an awesome romance story with a lot of suspense, then this is defiantly the book for you. I enjoyed the plot as I felt it had a very equal balance between the romance side of he characters relationship and the action packed plotting of the characters. It was one of those books you couldn't put down as you needed to [...]


    20. This book had everything a good Harlequin should. A bit of danger, a strapping young man, and just enough plot to make your fingers fly through the pages. I really just loved this sweet little romance. I felt it built to a practical and sexy place and i just enjoyed it. I always find it hard to write reviews about romance books because you either enjoy them or hate them and there is no inbetwee but I reeally really enjoyed this one. It was also nice to read a romance about to POC other than the [...]


    21. This Book is a stroke of mastery. I truly enjoyed reading it. Jeannie Lin has done it again with this new book. Loved Jin-Mei and Bao Yang in this book.

Even if they face danger, death and destruction they will face it together. The two of them will discover on this path their true feelings for one [...]


    22. "In her fifth Tang Dynasty novel, Linn brings the vibrant, violent history of medieval China to readers. She presents a vivid portrait of a sophisticated society entangled in political intrigue. Like all of her tales, this is as much a swashbuckling adventure as a romance. Readers will take pleasure in revisiting characters from The Sword Dancer while being immersed in a wild, dangerous, fast-paced read" (RT Book Reviews, 4 stars).Miniseries: Rebels and Lovers


    23. Joining Jin-mei and Bao Yang in the Tang Dynasty of China in AD 848 was a none-stop read for me. Author Jeannie Lin’s research into the political unrest, the daily lives of each class and her descriptive words transported me into a ghost living at their sides. My soul gasped at the danger, I wondered at the intricacies of the battle plans to overcome a cruel War Lord and sighed as Jin-mei and Yang truly fell in love. If you want to explore love in historical China this is the book for you.


    24. 4.5-4.75 StarsAn alluring historical romance set during the Tang Dynasty. This is the 2nd book in a series, but the novel can be read as a stand-alone. The setting is authentic as is the developing romance. Both MCs are clever, witty, and well meaning. The supporting characters are written well and add much to the already brilliant story. The plot is exciting with lots of action mixed in with the growing romance. Perfect for historical romance fans.Net Galley Feedback


    25. Better than the nonsense that was The Sword Dancer, but only just. The female character only knew the guy for a day or two, but then rants nonstop about grieving for him when he supposedly "dies." That's not a spoiler because it happens at the very beginning. In short, the "relationship" feels artificial from beginning to end, though it got 3 stars just for the fact of being an easy and fun read.


    26. Another excellent historical romance set in China from Ms. Lin. I enjoyed the "ordinariness" of the hero and heroine. He's a salt merchant, she's a magistrate's daughter, but they're both so much more than how their society would define them. Very well done, and I look forward to her next novel.


    27. Interesting setting and characters, romance was pretty engaging. Honestly the very obvious plot was the only thing making this drag.
