Relentless, handsome and determined, Han sees life—and love—as black and white. Until he finally captures the spirited, courageous Li Feng, who makes him question everything he thought he knew about right and wrong. Soon he's faced with an impossible choice: betray the elusive sword dancer he is learning to love, or trust his long-disregarded heart and follow her to dangerous, tempting rebellion.…
Lin (An Illicit Temptation) sets this romantic adventure in the dark underbelly of China's elegant and civilized Tang Dynasty. Famed thief-catcher Zheng Hao Han is hunting a performing arts troupe suspected of stealing a shipment of jade and gold. Talented sword dancer Wen Li Feng catches his attention, and soon he's chasing her down, up, and over rooftops. Thanks to Li Feng's acrobatic and fighting mastery, every time Han catches her, she escapes again. Eventually they elect to work together to uncover corruption, which will also inform Li Feng's search for her long-missing family. Lin's politically and culturally rich story is atypical, sensual, and filled with honor and wit.
