The Beijing Beauties
by Gina Tang

The Beijing Family Book 4

Three Chinese women from Beijing look for love and romance in the city of Los Angeles.

Ling is young, beautiful and recently crowned Miss Beijing. She moved to Los Angeles to study at UCLA. America is a new world to her and there is a different standard of beauty; unlike where she's from. Surrounded by beautiful American sorority girls who are more popular with the boys, she wishes for the same attention. She's been friends with Cole, a handsome Pre-med student and captain of the swim team since they met in World History class. It's not unimaginable having a crush on him since the first day they met and she wishes they can be more than friends. Will changing herself to be more Americanized improve her social life? Will Cole finally take a liking to her?

Jin is a successful real estate developer from Beijing. Still single past thirty five, many in China call her a Sheng Nu or ‘leftover women’. Men often find her intimidating. Their traditional and overbearing parents think she's too ambitious and independent to be a good wife and mother. She finds herself in Los Angeles through a matchmaking service; she heard that American men can appreciate powerful women like her. Match made to Vince, a prominent financier living in Los Angeles, she hopes he is the man appealed to her strengths and not turned away by her success. Is he the perfect man for her?

Chloe, a beautiful and charming mistress to Harry, her married Chinese billionaire boyfriend since she was eighteen. She came from a poor rural family upbringing and Harry gave her a sophisticated city life in luxury that a girl with her background can only dream of. She doesn't know any other life besides being Harry's mistress. She is reaching thirty and wants to be married and have children. But recently he has been avoiding her and she wants to know why. She flies to Los Angeles to confront Harry. Will she discover the truth? Will she finally leave him?
