It is a time of celebration in the Pingkang li, where imperial scholars and bureaucrats mingle with beautiful courtesans. At the center is the Lotus Palace, home of the most exquisite courtesans in China...  

Maidservant Yue-ying is not one of those beauties.  Street-smart and practical, she's content to live in the shadow of her infamous mistress--until she meets the aristocratic playboy Bai Huang. 

Bai Huang lives in a privileged world Yue-ying can barely imagine, let alone share, but as they are thrown together in an attempt to solve a deadly mystery, they both start to dream of a different life. Yet Bai Huang's position means that all she could ever be to him is his concubine-- will she sacrifice her pride to follow her heart?

Beautifully complex and culturally rich world setting, intelligent characters with great depth and an interesting, well-paced plot. The book has all the markings to be a favorite of many and has left me seriously impressed with the author's talent for storytelling.

Recommended for HR lovers, especially those who would like to get away from European Regency/Victorian HR.
