    That would be ideal!

    I have not read those yet. I've read the Kushiel/Naamah series(?pl) and the Agent of Hel books. I'll have to check out the Santa Olivia books.

    I forgot about her Agent of Hel books! I've read one and enjoyed it. Need to find more at the library. I wish I could get into her Kushiel/Naamah series, but for some reason I haven't ever been able to. I do tend to be more of a scifi person. Oh, and I will warn you that the one person I knew of who read Santa Olivia after knowing Carey through her other work seemed - well, not happy that the (crackling hot) main character based romance in Santa Olivia and Saints Astray is between two women.

    Nice when imaginary world is compliant since real one is so often not.

    I didn't like the Naamah books as well as the Kushiel ones. I don't think I'll mind F/F. There is some in both Kushiel series and it didn't bother me and M/M doesn't bother me at all. Rapey/Stockholm syndrome stuff portrayed in a positive light bothers me, and I don't think Carey would ever do that.

    But, yeah, Alt History/Epic Fantasy with strong BDSM elements could easily not be someone's cup of tea. I don't read a ton of sci-fi, but I love John Scalzi. I like Ender's Game, etc, too, but OSC is not someone I'm in a rush to throw money at. I like David Webber's Safehold series and Taylor Anderson's Destroyermen series. Oh, and I love Nathan Lowel's Solar Clipper series, too! Have a lot of time on my hands.

    Oh, I hear you!

    I didn't get far enough into the books to notice the BDSM stuff. I don't know if it would bother me in her books. I'll probably never find out.

    I don't read a ton of sci-fi, but I love John Scalzi.
    Scalzi! He's awesome! My partner found Redshirts and then we started reading his other stuff and he's amazing.

    I haven't read the others you mention. I hear you about Orson Scott Card, I was recently skimming some stuff about his politics re sexual orientation because Enders Game was the only possibility at the cheap theater and ... wow *runs away from Card*

    I have no idea. I can say my INFP partner initially decided she was attracted to me based solely on our email letters to each other, without ever having seen me. She does tell me I'm beautiful in the physical sense, but of course she's quite biased.
