Empress DJ's Review Policy:

mobi preferred 
but can also do epub, pdf, and can even go old school and read paper - gasp.  

The rumor is that Empress DJ is an old cougar who likes the steam - there is a lot of truth to that rumor! But I also like Cozy Mystery, Smut, Romantic Suspense, Contemporary Romance, Contemporary Fiction, Literary Fiction, Women's Fiction, Family Drama, Romantic Comedy, Smut, NA, some Paranormal Romance, and did I say Smut?  Although I don't care for outright porn, I don't mind erotica as long there is a love story and mutual understanding, and/or safe words involved.  No horror or zombies - unless they are really cute and promise not to bite.

Reviews by Zara Lethallan

Let's keep this short and sweet :-)

My pen name is Zara Lethallan, I also go by Zara. I read everything that catches my eye and I eat books for breakfast. I am obsessed with Romances, but they have to be a certain genre. Below I have listed the sub-genres for Romances books that I like along with genres that can be something other than Romance.  I don't pick every book that comes my way.  Including R&R, I am reviewing for 2 other sites.  And in addition to doing awesome guest reviews, I have also been writing myself. So my attention has been split a million different ways. No worries, I try to read a book or two a day.

Dark Thriller Romance
Dark Romance
MC Romance (MC~ Motorcycle club)
Erotica Romance 
Contemporary Romance 
Paranormal/ Supernatural Romance 
Dystopian Romance
YA Romance ~ But has to be Supernatural or dystopian


What to expect for Reviews:
I have a rating system when if comes to books, each books starts with 5 stars. Every time I notice something wrong or I don't like something it will loose a star.  I always say why it lost the star. Its like a pro's and con's thing going on. I try and post all reviews on Amazon, Goodreads, the Blog, and sometimes I might remember to tweet and facebook about it.


  1. I don't see an email address for submitting books for review

  5. Hello Sam,

    When you are reviewing books again, would you be interested in reviewing my book, Devil Out Of Texas ?

    I just posted it for sale as an ebook in Amazon. Please let me know what I need to do or send you in order to have it reviewed. It's 449 pages.

    Here is the brief synopsis I posted with the book:

    In the summer of 1973, a fourteen year old kid spends time with his grandfather and his friends, George Burns, Jack Benny, Georgie Jessel, and others, as they play cards at the Hillcrest Country Club near Beverly Hills, California. He later sits down to listen as his grandfather tells him the action-packed tale of his great-grandfather, the first Jewish Texas Ranger, and how his grandfather came to Hollywood to become one of the pioneers of the movie industry.
    The young man learns about how his grandfather came to be friends with the early stars of the silver screen, like Tom Mix, William S. Hart, Lionel Barrymore, and Doug Fairbanks, and his grandfather's association with the great Mexican revolutionary leader Pancho Villa, the famous lawman Wyatt Earp, and other fascinating characters.

    Thank you,

    -Roger Raffee
