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!

Completely over the top - but fun!

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.

    STEAMY & FUN!

    This book is loaded with highly erotic & steamy sex along with well placed humor. The characters are memorable & sexy! I've only had this book a week & already have ready it 3 times! While the plot is a little weak the sexy scenes and characters more than make up for it! This was the first book I've read of Jaid Black's 'Trek' stories, but I've ordered from B&N the rest of the series and cant wait to read those. This book is a definite keeper & one of my top 10 favorites.

    Really hot.

    This book was really great for those late night or afternoon naughty books. It was also really funny and had lots of fantastic sex scenes.

    Good Entertainment

    A planet where women wear no or very few clothes! Very interesting Possibility. Book is entertaining and if you read with an open mind it is worth the read.

    Absolutely a great read! A fantasy come true and yes I love the erotica!

    I stumbled upon Jade Black by reading through Something Wicked, This Way Comes. I started to read erotica end of last year and but have been reading paranormal even before. It's something that not everyone is into but I gotta say it has kicked up my love life but ten fold! Reading something that is out of the ordinary and so otherworldly gives me a break from reality and actually is a stress reliever. I love how Jaid Black as well as other authors I've read describe a much bigger otherworldly man and a simple but beautiful woman in a relationship starting first with seduction. Love love love it! I can't get enough no matter how much Jaid Black puts into this book. You can see how the relationship builds between the two. Yes, it can be over the top as another reviewer described but I love it! If I can sport a qi'ka this age and time I would! There's also so much more in the story. I love how Jaid Black will take some time and actually place you in another characters moment and not just describe it through the main characters view. The story also doesn't stop after the first love child. It keeps on going and in no way is it boring.

    I also love how Jaid Black has this in a series and has books that are 'a half' instead of book two there's a book one and a half. She's even topped my favorite author to boot! Give a her a try and you won't be disappointed!
