Comment:

I have listened to two Lin Jia Cheng stories consecutively.  This is the number 7 book.   From these 7 books, I have segregated them into three groups because of the similarities.

Group 1 – 媚公卿 (Mèi Gōng Qīng), 南朝春色 (Nan Chao Chun Se) and 卿本风流 (Ching Pen Fung Liu).  Second chance of choosing a different life path after the rebirth.

Group 2 –  凤月无边 (Feng Yue Wu Bian) and Mei Ren Wen Ya.  Intelligent FL that took on the role of protecting her own family.

Group 3 – 无盐妖娆 (Wu Yan Yao Rao), Yu Shi Chung Qiu and Qian Mian Feng Hua.  Modern girl time travel to the ancient world.  I have listened partly of the YSCQ and have not started on QMFH yet.

This book is quite similar to Feng Yue Wu Bian.  FL is extremely smart at a very young age and took on the role of breadwinner of the family.  The big difference between this story compared to FYWB, there were lots of separation between FL and ML.

It was unfortunately that this audiobook was recorded in female voice only.

Summary:

FL (Liu Jing) is a very smart girl from a merchant family.  When she was 11 years old she won over ML (Teng Qing/Teng Yan Wang).  When her father got to know about ML’s background, he packed up his entire family and left town within the same day.

FL met with ML2 (Gu Lang) a year after her family left Lou Yang.  ML2 likes her and has been following her around.  Both families were happy with the pair and decided to betrothed them.  FL was a very naughty girl and plotted to get ML2 kidnapped by the mountain thieves and then rescued him.  FL thought that this way, ML2 will remember her forever.  Instead, when ML2 got to know that it was a plot by FL, he was so angry and humiliated even after 6 years.

6 years later, FL’s family no longer as wealthy as before.  Her father’s business has declined and he was imprisoned after being accused of trafficking salt.  Creditors started to knock on the door forcing the family to pay up.  In order to save her family and their home, FL started to put on male clothes to pretend as her own eldest brother.  With her intelligence, she managed to get the family out of debt and rescued her father from prison.  During this time, she met ML1 and ML2 again.

She just robbed a boat full with salt cargoes and while she was trying to hide the boat, she stumbled upon ML1 and his follower on killing mission.   ML initially wanted to kill her to get rid of the witness but he released her when he found out that FL was the girl that ran away 6 years ago.  He has not forgotten the girl and upset because he did not get the chance to win back at that time.

ML2’s family has prospered and his father had became a governor.  FL went to ask ML2 for help to get her father out of the prison but ML2 refused.  He also refused to cancel their engagement.   Even though he was still angry with FL but his love has not diminished.

ML1 tried all kind of tricks to keep FL with him but FL always managed to run away from him.  The first time was when they were kids.  The second time was when they were in Wu Jun town.  ML1 then took 8 months to look for FL.  He found her at Lu Nan city.  The third time, FL wrote to the empress, ML1’s sister to say that ML1 had fallen in love with a gay.  The empress immediately instructed her soldier to escort ML1 back to the capital.  The fourth time FL ran away was after she reunited with ML and followed him back to Lou Yang city.   During this time, she found out that she was the biological sister of the emperor and was given the Princess title.  Unfortunately, the emperor who has been sick for a long time did not survive long to protect FL.

She agreed to become ML’s woman.  The Empress sent ML on a mission so that she could use the opportunity to kill FL.  FL managed to save herself and escaped to Nan Yue Guo instead of waiting for ML’s return.   ML was disappointed with FL’s action and asked for a military post to be stationed near the country border.

2 years later, ML went to Nan Yue Guo.  FL has became a Queen in Nan Yue Guo.  In Nan Yue Guo, woman is the matriarch of the family and FL was known to have multiple husbands in her inner palace.  This angered ML.  When they reunited, FL told ML that she has never been with another man except for him.   This time, ML left FL because of the humiliation that FL did to him.  ML took on a new official position in the province.  This time, he bought a few girls to act as his concubine with the intention to irk FL.

Both FL and ML separated due to misunderstandings but also reunited a few times before they finally ended up together.
