粉妆夺谋 Pink Conspiracy by XiZiQing

This story has me thinking of Zhao Li Ying and Feng Shao Feng’s Zhi fou Zhi fou, but with less intense and more humorous tone. This is a long story with many many characters from royalty to noble family to jianghu people. It’s more in the genre of crime investigating because it goes into some conspiracy cases revolving around the royal family. The author is very good at keeping things in the dark so even though lengthy it is a contentful read.


Singing while riding a horse, young and handsome. When her eyes laid their first glance at him, she knew that in this lifetime, this youth would not walk out of her heart.
