D Find this and other reviews at I et too far ahead of myself I want to note I don t read a lot of erotic lit I ve flirted with the enre on and off over the years but "I identify almost exclusively as a reader of historical fiction and that is how I approached Zenobia "identify almost exclusively as a reader of historical fiction and that is how I approached Zenobia s Psyche UnboundPsyche Unbound is essentially a retelling of the Cupid and Psyche myth God and mortal fall in love their bond is tested promises are broken and a vengeful and jealous oddess offers a path to redemption This path takes the form of a series of
