Today I have something a bit different than the usual fare. The Scorpion's Empress is a lesbian erotic romance by indie author Yoshiyuki Ly. At first glance, it's not my thing and then I read the blurb. I'm intrigued by Raj's reign over lowtown and how she helps them. Why bother with those in power that don't help their people? She sounds like an empress I can support and I'd actually be invested in stopping the plot against her. Plus, the paladin playing sub? I'm so game. I love when the stereotypes are thrown overboard. Ly sounds like she know what she's doing and there's plenty to check her out before you commit.
I hope you enjoy this break from regular programming and good luck!
