Please welcome Yoshiyuki Ly, author of “The Scorpion’s Empress” as my guest today. I’ll leave the word to Yoshiyuki now.

Guest Post

Hey there, my name’s Yoshiyuki Ly and I’m excited to post about my upcoming book, The Scorpion’s Empress! For my guest post, here’s a more candid summary of the two leads in the story.
Raj Mangala is the self-proclaimed Empress of the city’s lowtown, Elysium. She has street smarts, she’s compassionate, her people love her, and she has a troubled past that she doesn’t let show. She knows she’s in charge and she doesn’t let that power get to her head. Then there’s Ser Videl, a paladin of the city’s hightown, Eden. Anyone from the hightown who visits Elysium is colloquially called a scorpion, because it’s much hotter there compared to Eden, and they typically only go to cause trouble (imagine a scorpion looking to sting something).
I thought it would be interesting to have a typical knight character: noble, pious and honorable, and willing to sacrifice anything for the person she devotes herself to–even if that sacrifice was inherently evil. Raj and Videl both want the same things. Peace and stability. Their relationship ultimately lets them reach out and affect the city’s revolution. There’s an explicit power play in their relationship that reflects in the book’s title. As it’s more of an emotional and mental dynamic between them, I make sure to show them as equals who just so happen to like the things that they’re into.

If you’d like to see how everything comes together, keep an eye out for my book’s release on June 1st.

About the Book

The Scorpion's EmpressTitle: The Scorpion’s Empress

Author: Yoshiyuki Ly

Genre: Erotic Romance

After years of serving a corrupt government, Ser Videl, an idealistic paladin, learns that her younger sister is tangled in a dark scheme against Raj Mangala, the compassionate yet troubled empress of the city’s oppressed lowtown; the two women meet and are deeply drawn to one another, finding a shared sanctuary in their violently-divided city. The Scorpion’s Empress is intimately written through the eyes of both twenty-seven year old women.

Videl’s loving devotion is just what Raj craves, but Raj is wary of letting her guard down while protecting her throne. Determined to prove her worth, Videl chases after Raj and works to unravel the mystery of the plots against the empress. Raj wants Videl to serve her emotional and sexual needs, and the two explore a meaningful relationship of dominance and submission that delves fully into their deepest wants. When the conspiracy against Raj comes to a head, Videl’s loyalties are tested when she is forced to choose between her past and her empress.
