Dills & Hoon bodice ripper in Chinese disguise

To explain my heading to non Australians, in Oz we call fools Dills and tearaways Hoons.I was SO disappointed. I thought I was buying historical fiction but found it more hysterical than anything to do with ANY dynasty in China. If you like to pick up a bit of history with your fiction, don't bother with this one. The writing was immature. The plot was simple and predictable. The factual content was zilch. Lord above knows how it won an award - the Golden Heart award is unknown to me and I guess it must be equivalent to the Mills & Boon style. The performance was OK.
