An awesome and unique read!

I enjoyed this e-read a lot. Filled with tons of Characters and humorous banter helped to back the story to let it flow well, not to mention filled with YUMMY erotic scenes. I look forward to reading the other books in this series!

The Empress' New Clothes is the first book in Jaid Black's Trek Mi Q'an series. Kyra Summers is spending her vacation at a resort that specializes in stress relief and relaxation with her best friend Geris. She is completely clueless that meanwhile, in a galaxy far, far away, the Emperor of Trek Mi Q'an has learned that his queen shall be none other than Kyra Summers. Zor takes a trip to Earth to pick up his destined mate. He finds her outside the resort and whisks her away to his planet. There Kyra must learn the new customs of Zor's world and succumb to his passionate nature.

This book was a lot of fun. It's hokey and over-the-top, but it is also entertaining as all get out. So the theme is a fish out of water. Kyra is taken to another world, existing in another time. It's nothing at all what she is accustomed to and she must learn a whole new way of life. This is the part of the story that I was most interested in and found entertaining.

Since this is an erotic romance there is a lot of sex in this book. The customs on this particular world all seem to revolve around sex. I liked reading about the different customs, but after a while I was bored with the sex. It just seemed like the sex scenes became repetitive. Wash, rinse and repeat. Boooorrring. The entertainment for me came from Kyra finding out the hard way certain customs. That was always good for a laugh. Zor was completely clueless as to what Kyra would accept and not accept as a custom. I actually enjoyed reading this book, but it is no literary classic. If you like Sci-fi and enjoy a good laugh, then you might want to give this one a try.

    At first, I had a lot of trouble tolerating the treatment of the women in this book. But then as I continued reading the author made it seem as if the ladies were happy with there lot so I decided who am I to judge though I myself would never be able to stand it.

    Please don't waste your time

    I had to read this as a requirement for a college course that fully supports the argument that standards in higher education are falling. This is mere adolescent, schoolboy harem fantasy on the one hand, and female daydream on the other. For the boys, this is the story of a king and his seraglio. How he inherits or earns entitlement to it is unexplained, and so there is no justification for his title or position. For the ladies, this is the story of a young woman who through no earned or acquired attributes or qualifications comes to be high queen. And boy, does she come. A lot, and that is the book's emphasis. Her only task it to spread leg for the king and be invariably available to him for his gratification. Eerily, underlying the story (weak as it is) is a darker and more sinister subtext. Ms. Black seems to fully embrace and value the jihadi agenda and its oppressive posture toward other cultures and its repression and total subordination of women. That element makes what would otherwise be a merely insipid book insidious as well.
