Review: (optional)This is a good introduction to a series about a police inspector in late 20th century China. I couldn't quite figure out exactly when the book takes place, but maybe I missed something, and if I went back and re-read I'd know. Probably the 1980s or 1990s.

But Jemmie Leslie finds her there and convinces her to give him a chance. By the time they return to England, they are well reconciled and planning the wedding, only to be told by King James that he’d been wrong and was giving her a choice of gentlemen as her husband. Worse, the king insisted that she give his other candidates consideration even though she tried to tell him that she’d had come to love Jemmie. And Piers St. Denis was a man similar in nature to her half-brother Selim; a man unable to believe that anyone could refuse him his desire. Stunned when Jasmine rejected his suit, he forged an arrest warrant for Jemmie and followed them to the Scottish Highlands, where he eventually kidnapped Jasmine. She managed to escape, and when St. Denis made the mistake of thinking he’d have an easier time capturing her once again when she visited her grandmother Skye in England, he found himself dead by Skye O’Malley’s hand.
