Holy steam bath, Batman! This book is SCORCHING!
Erotic romance, emphasis on the erotic, done extremely well in my opinion. Yes, there were a few passages of uber-flowery language, but I can overlook that.
The story is told from the POV of the Princess Shanyin, sister to the emperor who has a harem of 30 of the most gorgeous male concubines and then the very handsome Chu Yuan catches her eye and she decides that she must have him. And thus the tale of her seduction of Yuan begins.
There's a plot here, beyond the seduction and heat which I thought added to the book, but make no mistake, this is a novella about erotic sex and it delivers. I will be reading Books 2 and 3. :)
