The Lotus Palace  - Jeannie Lin

I have 37 hours left to go before this book becomes nonfunctional. I was dawdling because I thought I had a little more time than that. Must read faster.

 

I've been enjoying this, although I'm a little worried about the romance aspect. I'm not sure what kind of end result Huang is hoping for or expects, or if he has even thought that far. I somehow doubt his parents would be pleased if he decided he wanted to marry Yue-ying, and another character has already mentioned that he can't make her his concubine without ruining his chances of ever becoming married.
