Sting of the Concubine
Her world destroyed. Her life shattered. Chione, daughter of King Akih, has come to beg for help from the man responsible for letting her father die. Emperor Osorkon.
But what she wants is revenge.
Emperor Osorkon is born with empathic powers, a gift and a curse endowed by the deadly scorpion. He can sway other’s emotions; but to mate with another empath would link their fates. And ultimately make him vulnerable to his enemies.
Trickery leads her to his bed. Fate leads them beyond.
In this desert world where sex is a public act, love might be fatal to both of them. But can they escape the calling of their hearts?.
