It is sensual lesbian erotica set in the early 20th century.Excerpt:No, no, dont fix it. Ive never seen anything more beautiful. There was a smile in the voice from that pale face with its intense, dark eyes. Edith dropped her fingers from her hair, and bit down on an instinct to touch that white cheek. Her hand fluttered in the dim light and before she could drop it back to her lap, the other womans hand flashed out and caught it. Long pale fingers caressed it, turning her palm in their smooth grip and lifting it to the nymphs face.A kiss was dropped upon her palm.Bio:Kate Genet is a New Zealand author who enjoys writing books with strong lesbian characters.
